Starting this Summer you will see a 50% increase in the cost of my weekly classes. Although this was a difficult decision, it is a decision I need to make. The change in classroom sizes and lower enrollment due to the pandemic has cut my weekly class income significantly, which has had a major impact on my income. Also, this increase will allow me to keep my classroom size smaller (10 student maximum) once we can return to "normal".
