IMPORTANT NOTICE: Because of a delay in responses, we’ve had to reschedule the last class. Last year, we faced a similar issue where many waited until the last moment to register. To effectively plan, we need to set a registration deadline. Hence, the deadline for this class is June 30th. If we don’t reach the minimum of 8 students by this date, we’ll unfortunately have to cancel the class.
