Accessibility of Services

Access accommodations for people who use a wheelchair and have limited mobility
We try to rent local buildings for our workshops and performances that are accessible for people who use a wheelchair or have limited mobility. The building we use for our regular on-going classes will be equipped with a ramp and elevator in the next year or two as the space undergoes renovations.
