We now offer online classes for adults and young performers. All online classes are completely interactive, and in keeping with Factory policy, are limited in size to ensure plenty of individual attention.
Our online classes are all live, and delivered via Zoom and will require an internet-connected desktop or laptop computer, tablet or phone and a quiet, well-lit place in your home.
All class times are Central Time (CST)
