Advanced sign-up is required. Cancellation policy applies. Pay in advance and get 5 for $100, or pay as you go for $25 per session.

If you can make it for some weeks and not for others in December, don't let that deter you from signing up--it's fine to mix & match! Simply let us know which slots you want to reserve, so we can be actively scheduling any remaining empty slots. This program was created to help us serve more clients, and to provide an economical complement to private/duet sessions.

Our accounting uses the honor system. Although there is a computerized record of your account, the visits that are used on that account are entered by human hands. We depend upon the sign-in sheets in order to enter the visits you have made to the studio, and to keep our accounting accurate. Please remember to sign in BEFORE your session begins, and please fill in all the fields of the sign-in sheet. Now that we have so many wonderful offerings at the studio, we need all this information to help keep our data entry correct. Thank you!
