Please register for classes early to avoid disappointment! Pre-registration is required.
This is very important – most classes have a minimum and maximum class attendance number. Once the maximum number has been reached the class is FULL and no one else can register. If the minimum number is not reached by two business days before the class date, the class will be cancelled.

If you see that a class you were interested in taking has disappeared from the website it is probably full. Feel free to call us at 641-421-3666 for class questions and availability.
