- Group classes are identified by levels I – II – III – IV/V. Beginner through Advanced. Students can refer to the Syllabus provided for each level to determine how long to practice at a given level before advancing (usually from 1-3 months for the “Level I” classes and then additional time for more advanced levels.)
- Group Classes must be completed during the four(or five) week cycle and may not be carried over from one month to another. However, if any classes are missed during the cycle, you can register for make up classes that are available during the same cycle.
