Class Descriptions and Schedule

Schedule

New class selection form!

The class selection link below will open a new window and take you to a page outside the Toot Website. It provides a more secure and reliable way of submitting your class selections than our old email-based form. When you are finished, close the window and you should be back at the Toot site.

(For easy reference while you are making your selections, you can see details about all the classes in a separate window or tab by clicking here.) Of course, you must be registered for the Toot for us to pay any attention to your choices at all...
