KEEP IN MIND: WA State limits Pit Row to 30 students per class so due to the high demand for seating; only paid in full students will be added to the class roster and guaranteed seating in the class.
Additionally, due to the time requirement; class begins at 8:00 AM. If you are late, you will need to reschedule for another class date.
We advise that you submit your payment as quickly as possible because until you are paid in full the seat remains available and arrive early to avoid any delays!
