We're not moving




We're not moving

There's been some talk lately (mostly by us) of possibly moving the school from our current location to a new one. That situation came upon us suddenly last month, and it forced us to scramble for a few weeks while considering new spaces to teach in. It delayed being able to post new classes, as well as stalling our advertising and promotional efforts for a while.

But thankfully, it was a false alarm -- we're not going anywhere for the time being. So we're back to holding classes, promoting and advertising, and hosting events in our current space at 16 Mary St, Des Plaines, IL.  We hope to see you here for a class or event soon!
