Can I Practice at Home?

2018-03-13T17:30:06+00:00

Yes, I can still practice! Well. Here we are. Another Nor'easter. It's incredibly rare that the studio closes, but these late winter snowstorms have really been packing a punch, and we want everyone to stay safe, so sometimes class must be canceled. There's really nothing like practicing in [...]

2018-02-13T13:14:46+00:00

Remember the "order of operations" from algebra class? Parentheses, then Exponents, then Multiplication and Division and finally Addition and Subtraction. Maybe a high school math teacher had you memorize the phrase, "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally" so that you could attack intimidating equations in a way that would lead to [...]
