Good Dirt calendar

Our beloved students - we hope that this helps you plan out your practice times. Please note that this calendar reflects the most up-to-date information for the current week of events and lists parties, private lessons and some due dates for the business.  In other words, not every entry is a party so make sure you read the text and not just see the blue block before deciding to skip coming in.  Also, we often get last-minute bookings so be sure to check back often and before heading to the studio. At the bottom of the page, you can find a schedule for the current term for classes. Thank you and we hope this helps everyone out! Warmly, Rob & Jess
