Living in Brooklyn, we are so lucky to have numerous classes available to our kids – ranging from music, dance to movement and even Capoeira! But along with all of these exciting classes may sometimes feel as if we have too many choices – making it difficult to decide where exactly our children should go. Many schools realize this and have started to offer free or deeply-discounted courses so that you and kids can actually test out a class before you fork over the big bucks. Here are some trial and demo classes taking place in December and January so that you can better decide where to take refuge this winter.
