With cautious anticipation of the ongoing development to state and local regulations, we are sharing the upcoming schedule for the winter sessions. Keeping the health and safety of our students, instructors, and staff at the forefront of our minds, we are making several changes to this season's classes. For example, most sessions have been moved online via zoom. In the event we are able to open for in-person instruction, we are significantly limiting class sizes. Once open, we will also be taking every precaution regarding the cleaning and maintenance of our facilities. We may not be able to run some classes as planned due to state health and safety mandates. In the event of our cancellation we will issue refunds to all parties affected. Head to huntingtonbeachca.gov for updated class information!Thank you for your patience and continued support of HBAC.
Please visit hbready.com for updates regarding COVID-19 information and response.
Registration for all online classes will begin on Tuesday, November 17th at 9am. Registration for in-person classes will begin 14 days prior to the start date of class. Online registration is highly encouraged at hbsands.org. Classes are subject to change.
