*** Coronavirus News ***  Most classes are now being moved to online access only, but there are still a couple of classes that you can also attend in person.  As the advice changes daily please check before travelling to a class.  It is likely classes will be exclusively on-line soon.  We will be back in the studios as soon as government advice allows. ***
