We have again applied for space with the Toronto District School Board, and are waiting to hear back regarding the resumption of rentals which were cancelled last year due to the pandemic. Our teachers are looking forward to once again instructing Toronto youth on the many facets of Tibetan culture such as language, meditation, song, and dance. We will begin registration as soon as we get the go-ahead from the City of Toronto. Announcements will be made online and via email. Tentative dates: July 5 to August 21.
