Please note that as of early March 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic, ALL OUR PROGRAMS (private/semi-private lessons, group classes, workshops, social “gatherings”) have migrated online and take place via ZOOM.
We will make announcements when we are able to resume teaching at our school located in the heart of the Old Port in Portland, at:
75 Market Street – Suite 305 – Portland, Maine 04101
