Our class is 11/13/09 from 7-9 p.m.   And don’t forget, class is only $15 per student.  Those who come early can relax and meditate to some of the best adult Black music ever made.

We begin at 7:00 p.m. sharp at the Yvonne B. Burke Ladera Community Center (4750 62nd Street, first block west of La Brea Ave.) in Los Angeles.
