*IMPORTANT - those classes that have indication of Part I and Part II are progressive, which means that you are allowed to take Part I without taking Part II, but you are NOT allowed to take Part II without taking Part I. This applies to all levels.

** If you register for Leader's or Follower's technique class alone, your class will be coded V or T respectively, but if you are registering with a couple's pass and would like to attend that class, you'll both need to register for a class coded R.
