Welcome to my class schedule. If you know of a group who'd like to increase fitness while having fun, I am available to teach private lessons, small classes, or seminars. I routinely teach women's groups large and small, young and old, professional and amateur alike, and love watching the joy and excitement this art form brings. If none of the classes listed below works for you, I do also teach private lessons. Give me a call or email me for more information!

Schedules:
Sept. - Oct. 2008 Fall Term / November 2008 Winter Term

    How To Find The Mayne Studio, 959 Lake Dr., Grand Rapids, MI
    From 196 (Gerald R. Ford Exspressway):
    Take Fuller Street exit. Go South on Fuller. Turn right on Michigan, then take a left onto Diamond St (1st light). Go through two traffic lights and pass the "Resureccion Y Vida" Church on your left - directly after the church, you'll see the Global Infusion/Clothing Matters/The Nest parking lot on your right. The parking lot will be just before Lake Drive - If you pass Lake, you've gone too far!
    Free parking in Global Infusions lot at 143 Diamond St. - turn N on Diamond from Lake Dr. and park in lot.

    Go in the red door to the left of the Diamond St. parking lot and follow the entrance hall. At the end of the hall, the stairs are on your left (Balletmore Studio is on your right). Climb the stairs and get ready to shed your coat, your shoes, and your worries! :)

    GR Parks and Rec follows Grand Rapids Public Schools (Monday nights)

    Wyoming Parks and Rec follows Wyoming Public Schools (Tuesday nights)

    The Mayne Studio follows Grand Rapids Public Schools (Wednesday, Sunday nights)

    GVSU will be cancelled if the campus is closed; in case of questions, call or text me at 616-862-1900 (Thursday nights)

    Muskegon Women's Club class follows Muskegon Public Schools (Thursday nights) - but check Grand Rapids' weather as well - if it's too bad I might not be able to get over there. Call or text 862-1900 if you have any question.

    For the weekend classes, cancellations will be posted on my website. If you have any questions, please call my cell before ANY class and ask. A good rule of thumb for weekend events or classes is: if any major highway in town has been closed due to weather-related issues, you should probably plan to stay home and stay safe.
