The DPA is happy to announce the return of our FREE lesson programs for our members.
Like everything else these days, we had to make sure that the procedures for teaching are safe and practical in this Covid environment. That being said, we feel confident that our small group approach along with our Covid safe practices will make summer lessons a fun and informative experience.
