“Let’s Work on That”

Objective of the 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. To register, contact Diane Battis.

NOT OFFERED THIS SESSION.

Contact our Registrar if you would be interested in a future session.
