Due to space constraints, students are limited to two guests for Family Observation periods. Due to limited space at our Portland location, guests are asked to utilize street parking. We ask that you please arrive on time, as late arrivals may not be admitted into the studio. We welcome younger children to watch their older siblings during class, though should their attention start to wane we ask that they quietly step outside the studio so class may continue free of distraction. Also, please reserve all conversations until after the class has finished.

Photography and videography is prohibited during class and mobile phones must be switched off. If you are unable to adhere to these rules, you may be asked to leave the classroom.
