Frequently Asked Questions
Can I take a drop-in class?
You can take a drop-in class at the cost mentionned above. To do so, please create your account on the online platform. The day of the class, check the number of spots available. However, it is not possible to book a drop-in class in advance. Registration will be done on site at the reception at the same time as payment. Your previously created account will facilitate the registration process. Participants who would like to register after taking this drop-in class will receive the same credit applied to their registration fee for the term.
Are drop-in classes available for the whole session?
Participants can take drop-in classes between session the first and penultimate lessons, with the last class being a free observation class. As the learning pace increases during the session, participants taking drop-in classes need to be aware of the difficulties and risks associated to the cadence of the class. Depending on the progression of the session, it may be preferable to follow a class of lower level.
