ClassesTuesday, Thursday, OR Saturday from 1:00 – 4:00.

Enrollment:  Month-to-month, 1 class per week.

Tuition: $160/month if your chosen day of the week has 4 Tuesdays, for example, OR $200 if 5 Tuesdays in the month, which occurs 2 or 3 times per year.  Same applies for Thursdays and for Saturdays.  Tuition for the upcoming month must be paid by the last week of the prior month to reserve your space in consideration of the very small class size and waiting lists.  Enrolled students have first option for class re-enrollment in the upcoming month.

Tuition for 4 classes per month: $160
Tuition for 5 classes per month: $200

Should you wish to continue, or practice at home and return for more instruction at a later time, you may do so, as long as your decision is made and Lela is informed of it one week in advance.

Absences:  Unforeseen absences may be made up on another class day of that same month on a “space-available” basis.  Missed classes cannot be carried over to the following month. Should you discontinue classes, please inform Lela at least one week in advance, which would be much appreciated.

Payment MethodsPayment may be made with personal check or credit card.  For checks, you may hand it to Lela during the last class of the month (for next month), or you can mail it to:

To pay by credit card, you may do so from home on my website: www. lelaharty.com through PayPal.

Parking:  The lot behind the studio is accessible a half block south of University via Grimm Street, or via the alley just east of Ray Street.  The first two hours in the lot are free; will explain further during the first class.  There is two hour parking on the street in front of the studio and south of North Park Way, no restrictions in certain areas nearby and residential.  Please look for signs posted to know if you are parking in a time restricted area.
