For those who were unaware of the change, we relocated Learning Trade Secrets back to our home studio during the shutdown in 2020.  Because of space constraints, we have decreased the size of our classes from 15 to 10.  In our eyes, this was a good thing.  Students have received more personalized instruction while getting to know those in the industry a little better.
