“Let’s Work on That”

The objective of this class is to allow you to work on whatever is needed: contacts, running a-frame, particular handling (ie rear crosses, back side of jumps), etc. During your turn in the class, we will focus on your particular needs, so it will be very customized. Class limited to 4 students. Will create a second class if needed. Drop-ins only – please contact Diane Battis if you would like to drop in.
