Summer session is July 6 through August 20.

We are delighted to provide online learning and engagement experiences for everyone — from anywhere! — with our first ever summer term of classes in music, step dance, Irish language, playwriting, and storytelling.

Building friendships and community through shared learning experiences has been core to our mission since 1972, so we are thrilled to be able to sustain our education program online.
