We’re nearing the end of the Winter Session for 2014, and we have only 3 classes left!

  • Tue Apr 22
  • Sun Apr 27
  • Tue Apr 29

This Winter Session ends (and all passes issued for this session of classes expires) on Tuesday, April 29, 2014.  If you have punch cards with classes left on them, or if you want to make up for a class you might have missed this session, be sure to swing by and dance on one of these 3 dates before we close.

The 2014 Summer Session schedule is in the works, too; a few changes coming up, and a few trial runs for courses. Let me know what you want to see and I’ll make it happen! Email classes@seraka.com. Summer Sessions starts in June!

We will add a week to the end of the session and keep the 14 week schedule as planned.

Snowmageddon Update

Snowmageddon Update

in: Seraka Studios

Due to the rolling black outs, power outages, and the lack of tea in many peoples’ homes at the moment (and also that driving is terrifying in these white out conditions) it may be necessary to delay the start of Sunday’s 6:30pm Technique Level 1 classes until next week. No decision has been made at this time, however.

We’ll be keeping an eye on the power in the St. John’s area, the driving conditions and the general safety, and we’ll keep you posted. Check back on Sunday, January 5 at 3:00pm for an update.
