COVID-19 UPDATE:

NEW:  We are offering both In Person AND At Home classes for our 8 week Summer 2020 session, featuring The Dolphin Collection and begins Mon, Jul 6th and ends Sat, Aug 29th!  In Person classes are offered Mon am, Tues pm, Wed am (Interest List), Thur am (Interest List) and Fri am in Carmel and Thur am in Broad Ripple (The Riviera Club).  At Home classes (via Zoom) are offered Mon thru Thur am, Sat am as well as Mon pm.

Please Note:  Studio pandemic guidelines are in place with several changes, but a few you should consider prior to registering:  One adult per child per family, all adults are required to wear masks except for the teacher, social distancing will be encouraged for the adults, but not required for the children, including interactions between the instructor and students, In Person summer class sizes are reduced by 33% of our normal maximum, makeups for In Person classes missed will be scheduled in the At Home classes (not in the In Person classes) - for each In Person class missed you will schedule makeups in the At Home classes instead of the In Person classes, to reduce mixing groups of students and teachers during the pandemic.

Refunds:  If you are registered for an In Person class and the government mandates another shutdown, you will be given the option of a refund minus the refund fee of $10 per child, a full future credit for classes/tuition remaining, or a transfer to At Home classes with a future credit of the difference between the In Person tuition and the At Home tuition ($3/week).  Outside of another government shutdown, there will be no refunds.

To register, scroll all the way down and click on "See Classes and Location Details" in your choice of At Home, Carmel or Broad Ripple section.  The system will automatically pro-rate the tuition at checkout based on the number of weeks remaining in the session.  Please note the materials fee is $20 for Online Only access - however if you would l like to have the Dolphin CD and/or Songbook, please contact the office, as we have a limited number in inventory that we can provide, for an additional fee + shipping (if applicable)

We have three convenient locations!  At Home, Broad Ripple (inside The Riviera Club) and Carmel (in the Monon Square shopping center near Rangeline & 126th St, next to Soho Cafe)

We really appreciate your support during this pandemic.  If you would like to make a donation to support our program, we are accepting them, as we are still paying for our Carmel retail storefront in Monon Square.  Please call or email the office if you would like to make a donation.
