We are excited to announce our Fall Virtual Academy 2020! We had great success with our virtual camps this summer and would like to make it even better this fall! We will be offering NEW classes all designed to be taught virtually by some of your favorite Weathervane teachers. Although the classes have a new twist, they still follow the same goals and objectives as our on-site classes. 

Classes with the green square are open to all experiences and levels and classes with the blue square are open but prefer students to have some experience. 

The fall session will be 7 weeks long (September 12th-October 24th) all taking place on Saturdays with some weekday options.
