Pre-Registration for Fall 2016 Due by June 1st 

Pre-Registration Forms for Fall 2016 have been sent home from class! If you did not receive one, please stop by the office to pick one up. 

Please take the time to fill it out and return it. In the past some families were not able to get into the classes they wanted, but they did not take advantage of the opportunity to Pre-Register.

Pre-Registration saves you money on your Registration Fee. On your Pre-Registration form, you will be able to tell us what days and times will work best for you next season. We will build our Fall schedule based upon the requests we receive. Your child will be placed in a class based upon teacher recommendations and your input from Pre-Registration. 
Summer 2016 Class & Camp

This year, we will be hosting 2 camps at the Plaza 183 Studio, as well as 2 all-day camps at the Mesa location along with YPW Spanish Immersion School

Since registration began, we have added a CJBT II & Beginning Combo for 3-5 year olds classes on Thursday afternoons at the Plaza 183 studio.
