Never experienced the class
We waited for 25 minutes and the class still hadn't started! The class was suppose to start at 12:30 and we were still waiting because the instructor was in another class. It would've been nice if the instructor sent us a message about when the class would start. This was a bad first impression! We will not book a class!
