For a deeper dive into a topic, you will want to participate in our workshops. Workshops are similar to what you would experience when attending a dance workshop with several hours of material, exercises and discussion.  Workshops can be found in three formats:

On demand (You decide when to start and go through the workshop at your own pace.)

Scheduled (You start the workshop with others on the same day and progress together week to week.)

Webinar (You get to interact live with an expert or panel of experts.)

Both workshop formats offer interaction with other students and your instructor, but the scheduled workshop will appeal to those who like to learn in community.
