My kid attended the free class a couple years ago. It was very crowded and there is only one teacher. The loudest kids pretty much ran the show and there was a lot of yelling to try to reign them in. It was not a pleasant experience and she didn't really learn much. It is free, though.

The classes are great my child can't wait to see Sensi' Dawn again, it free but it's intent is to give parents and children an opportunity to see if they need to pursue a costly, ( 100's per wk) regiment for their child at a pay school. This program I am told has served over 3000 youth and maybe you should refer to your "KID" as my child.
