How much do these classes cost?
Classes are held on a sliding scale payable via PayPal. This is an effort to accommodate a range of budgets. Every class has it's own rate, click on the class for details. Pick a price in this range that works for you. Choose a higher rate if you can allows me to continue offering lower rates.

Most classes are taught every 4-6 months but there’s no guarantee that a class you see right now will be taught again.
Can I get a refund for a class I purchased?
Due to limited space, there are no refunds for any virtual classes. If you email before the class that you will not be attending, your seat will be donated to a low-income person of color or person with a disability.
