Some of our programs are one-time events and some are a series of classes on a specific day and time for a set number of weeks. Rest assured we are taking all necessary health and safety precautions including adequate social distance in each program or event. Many of our offerings take place outdoors, while others take place in our spaces at the Philip Heit Center or at a beautiful property on Avis Rd. The Philip Heit Center is equipped with an HVAC system that meets the strict compliance standards for air flow and filtration required by The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. We are confident that we can safely welcome you indoors for our programs and events.
