You MUST be 18 years of age or older to apply. Some courses do have strict prerequisites, if you are unsure that you meet the minimum prerequisites please contact the studio directly.

All independent study hours are to be documented and turned in to the Director of Education at firstname.lastname@example.org. All hours must be completed at Twisted Bodies in Denton, TX.
