About Us





Are they really free?

Absolutely!  Defend the Arts is a non-profit organization.  We are passionate about our cause.  All of the instructors are volunteers. The only money that is ever exchanged is at the festival itself.  The tickets are a suggested donation price.  The money we gain from the festival, along with the generous volunteers and other kinds of donations, is how we support our organization and are able to offer these classes to the public for free.


When do Classes Begin?

July 18th 2013.  There will be an orientation meeting prior to the classes beginning.  The time, location and date of that meeting is TBA.


What are the Age limitation?

There is none!  There is a class for any age and all capabilities.
