Working during School Vacation, before and after New Year

First, we want to congratulate all our students who passed the rank testing last week.

Second, we are still working in our normal schedule this week (Dec 19 – Dec 25). During School Vacation next 2 weeks we will work as usual, with 2 exceptions: we will be closed on Monday, December 26, 2022 and Monday, January 2, 2023.

In other words, the last training session in 2022 will be Friday, December 30, 2022, and training will resume in New 2023 Year on Wednesday, January 4, 2023.

Happy Holidays!

Happy Halloween and no training on Monday, October 31st, 2022

Happy Halloween to all our students on Monday, October 31st, 2022! Earl Bales CC, following City of Toronto instructions, forbid kids under 12 years old inside the Centre after 4 pm.

Due to that, our Kinder and Kids groups will not be able to practice. Because of that we decided to cancel all our training sessions on Monday, October 31st, 2022 including Youth and Adults one (13+). I hope instead of that, you will have a very fun Trick or Treat with your family and friends. Our training will resume on Wednesday, November 2, 2022.
