I love this place. I'm so glad they moved to Oak Park Avenue. There's tons of things you learn at all ages here. They are the best people that you could want teaching your kids whether they are three or thirty-three. They have a superb leader and great teachers. They have attracted people that not only participate, but people who eat and shop in the district. Family classes brought be into the best place I've been since moving to Oak Park. Thank You!
