We have resumed SMALL in-person classes! Our classroom is beautifully ventilated with six large windows, new French doors, AND a ceiling fan. We’ll continue to use Zoom for some classes, but we hope you’ll join us for the fun and friendship that comes from taking a class together in-person.


ALL students, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a face mask during INDOOR classes. Recent variants of COVID-19 are highly transmissible, and CGS respects the recommendations of smarty-pants scientists who know much more about it than we do.


There are no bystanders to this pandemic. We’ve ALL been affected in some way by the social and economic upheaval of the past many months. And while it’s not over yet, there are ways we can safely gather and enjoy life again.


PLEASE JOIN US! We’ve missed you and look forward to seeing your smiling faces again!


We use secure PayPal and Square technology
to process all online payments and donations.
