Easybridge! Classes

The Easybridge! (EB) program is based on the premise of learning from playing. The format is a 25-30 minute mini-lesson followed by two hours of play.

Accredited Easybridge! presenter, Michelle Golden, gives the mini-lesson. Students can experiment and learn from their mistakes as well as from their successes. Refreshments are provided and the emphasis is on having fun! Bring a friend, or come alone. Partners are guaranteed. There are three levels of Easybridge! as well as Easybridge! workshops to reinforce the topics covered in the Easybridge! classes.
