What You Should Know

  • Enrollment after the start of the session will be prorated for the number of remaining weeks.
  • Space is limited. All classes open until filled.
  • Students enroll for a full class session
  • Drop-ins $22/class
  • Also remember, parents/guardians are not required to stay with your child during class. In fact, we ask that you please drop your child/children off and and come back during the last 10 minutes of class to pick up your kids. The time alone is easier for the coach and other instructors (children behave differently away from their parent/guardian) to create the space necessary for them to function independently, build and bond with their coach, and not have to deal with more than one authority figure in the environment. Thank you for understanding. However, if we feel that your child needs you, we will ask you to stay. There is also a waiting room downstairs.
  • You can bring your payment on the first day you attend the session if paying by Cash or Check. Or, send your registration fees via PAYPAL Friends and Family to: PAYPAL.ME/tinejoy, VENMO tinejoy13, or CASHAPP $tinejoy
  • If you are interested in private, semi-private or group classes please contact Tine directly.
