The Independent Study Program accepts students for 3 or 6 months of study. In this program, students are required to take 18 hours per week of class room study (52 classes per month). The majority of our classes are 1.5 hours each, but some of the stretch, yoga and other strength building classes are only 1 hour long. The Program begins on the first day of every month.

Upon completion, students can choose to extend their current studies or apply to one of our other programs. Please note that the Certificate Program and the Limon Program require students to audition before acceptance.
