High-quality interactive classes on Zoom. Lots of fun, and meaningful lessons for students. Younger students will be taught by energetic teachers that may wear funny glasses, or Zoom filters (like flowers, party hats or reindeer antlers), use realia (objects to aid in teaching), or allow them to write words on the screen with Zoom’s annotation tools!

Many group classes-of all ages, will have music and movement, warm up activities, games and virtual prizes to keep groups of up to 8 students engaged!
