About Us

The variety of classes is the trademark of the Class Factory along with our wonderful instructors,
who we believe are the heart of the studio.

The Class Factory encourages everyone to try the classes. Every class, even intermediate or advanced, will include modifications for beginners. It is important to us that everyone exercises safely, within their own limits and a focus on fun!
