COVID:

We request that students refrain from attending if they (or anyone in their household) exhibits any Covid symptoms.

This class is mask-optional. The studio space is a converted garage - there is a split for A/C, and then we actually also have the ability to completely open the garage door itself and open up a whole wall, getting great outdoor air circulation!
