We strive to keep staff, volunteers, visitors and program participants safe in our programming spaces and we will continue to follow all provincial government regulations.

Our programs include the following safety protocols:

  • Those experiencing illness should not attend class (refunds/transfers available on a case by case basis)
  • Individual supplies for each student
  • Increased cleaning of high-touch surfaces
  • Masking is encouraged

Please note, there may be an occasion where we are unable to safely offer regular classes consistently due to the unpredictability of COVID-19. This could result in classes being interrupted, canceled, or moved to online, depending on the program.

*Please note that a small Eventbrite fee is applied to all bookings.

Secure your spot early, and help ensure your class runs. Ticket sales for most programs close 7 days prior to the class, and refunds will be granted up to 7 days prior to the start of the class. View our community class cancellation and withdrawal policies.
