Questions & Answers

Q. What is Hurrah's plan for Classes with our current pandemic situation?

ANSWER

Hurrah is starting the year with Virtual classes on Zoom. We have been teaching this way since March and have found it to be an effective way for new and current students to take these classes. As the situation changes we will transition to a hybrid of teaching and then back to in person when we safely can. We miss you all being with us in person but our teachers have worked very hard to make our Virtual Classrooms just as good as our normal Studio Classrooms.
