About the Weekend Classes and other offerings:
The weekend program offers several types of classes; this year we will feature 2 hour live classes featuring repertoire in many different styles. Each teacher has been asked to submit offerings that will be of interest.
The day will feature several classes and a big after lunch jam, a mini-class late afternoon on Saturday.
We will have a staff concert on Friday night, followed by jams, and Saturday will include a dance and jam sessions in the evening.
