Members Only Boro Bootcamp!


Get your boro skills in shape with...

Boro Bootcamp!

These member-only sessions will focus on fundamental boro skills, a different one each month. The goal is to improve your technique, help you through any stumbling blocks, prepare you for the next level, and maybe show you a new way of looking at things. The format will consist of a 2 hour demo accompanied by question and answer by a different expert each Saturday morning. If you like, you can follow up with your own self-directed practice session immediately following the demo. Useful for any experience level, from newbie to pro, but not intended for absolute beginners.
