New Class Reservation System

To better serve you we will be switching to a new format for reserving and paying for classes. The new system will still allow you to search, reserve and pay for any EMI classes but it will casino also allow you to look back at historical classes you may have taken. Please bear with us as we work out any kinks in the system. If you experience any issues please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
