Question from Kristine R.
Will this class be offered again? At these current dates from January-April 2019, I would miss two sessions. Unless making up those two classes later would be an option? Thanks!
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Kristine! As of this time, the only schedule we have is the one posted on this page. You may save the class to your wish list so you'll get a notification when we add a new date. Make-up classes are not allowed since other classes may be full. The instructors are also paid based on the number of students within their own classes, so attending a class outside is not allowed.
