Description:

Busy schedule? Pas de problème !

Your schedule is very busy, so you're looking for flexible options? Join our online workshops this Fall!

You can mix & match between workshops to join online sessions now and then, when you feel like practicing a specific skill. Sign up for a series of 5 regular workshops (90mn each) or 10 bite-size workshops (45mn each). You can also contact us to join just one workshop on an à la carte basis ($50/90mn workshop).

IMPORTANT: As our workshops rely on the use of dedicated virtual classrooms, a separate annual fee is due to gain access to our online learning platform. You will have access to the detailed curriculum in your virtual classrooms, as well as to learning resources relevant for each workshop.

If you prefer focusing only on activities and discussions posted in your virtual classrooms without actually joining live video calls, you can do that too!
