Autumn being officially here, we look at reformatting our class structure. We plan for a guest instructor at least once a month, if possible twice a month, as part of our regular curriculum.  Peter Baldridge of Sacramento will teach on the first and third Saturday of October.  A technician par-excellence, he will do two classes daily. The fee - $15 for one, $25 for both - will also cover the subsequent week's follow-up.
On another note, our guest artist for September, Eduardo Saucedo, is producing a show to be performed in October.
Strongly suggest buying tickets ASAP

Until later, Mary
