The first day of registration is very BUSY as we fill spaces on a first-come first-serve basis.

To alleviate stress on all parties when you call LEAVE ONE MESSAGE clearly stating your name, number, and the class you wish to register in. Alexis will return all messages in the order she received them. It may take a few hours to get back to you so please do not repeat calls unless Alexis leaves you a message to call her back. You will not be bumped out of queue. If the answering machine is full DO call back until you get through, Alexis will do her best to make sure it is clear. (Messages made before December 12th 10:00am will be disregarded).

We need your name, contact info, and a payment.
We will take payment over the phone with a visa or master card.
A payment must be taken at the time of registration to secure your spot in the class.
Note: HST is NOT included in the listed course fees. Please include 15% HST with each registration

We maintain a waiting list and encourage students to ask to be added to it. If we have enough students and if there is a day available in the schedule with an instructor available to teach we will run a second class.
