    Wow, I’m feeling lucky! My boss is sending me out to work in Philadelphia for one month, and I’m looking for a place to train. is it possible to train for one month in your studio? I’d love to join this workshop too. How do I register? And where in Philadelphia are you located?
    Sorry for all the questions…I just found out that’ll be going to the US.
