Combining Fun with Intentional Learning and Progress

For the most part, Allegro Pillars is a class designed for students in second grade at elementary school. Super Pillars is a valuable foundational class prior to enrolling in Allegro Pillars, but all beginning students are welcome to enroll in the class after an initial assessment is performed or a demo class has been attended and the Instructor feels confident that this is the best place for your child.
