Special Needs

We make every effort to hold classes in rooms that are accessible to all participants. However, some older buildings cannot be made readily accessible for wheelchairs or walkers. If you have such a requirement, please notify us as soon as possible, and we will attempt to accommodate you. We shall attempt to accommodate other special needs, but would appreciate at least three weeks notice.
