Lessons, Classes & Workshops

online classes

Sign up for online intensive learning from the comfort of your own home. Frequently-offered classes include: flatfooting/clogging, banjo, and Granny Life Skills. 

Carla presents a 45-minute class each week, with time to ask questions and review at the end. Using free software from Zoom, all you need is an internet-connected device equipped with a webcam and a microphone (most laptops, tablets, and smart phones work.)  All classes will be recorded and all registered students will have access to the videos, so you can sign up even if you cannot attend every class live.

​Classes vary in length and require a minimum of 4 participants. Class information here:
