Watching Class & Appointments

You are always welcome to watch classes without an appointment.

We encourage prospective students or parents of students to make appointments to visit our school, speak to our chief instructor, and watch a class. Appointments are approximately 15 minutes before a scheduled class or right after class. Please call or email in advance to make an appointment.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about our school by email, phone or in person. Please email us at, call us at 919.732.6367, or visit our school (see below).


Come visit us in the Daniel Boone Shops just off Churton Street, the main street of Historic Hillsborough, NC, at 389 Daisy Street, Hillsborough, NC, 27278. We’re centrally located within 20 minutes of Durham, Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Mebane and Efland, located at I-85 exit 164 or I-40 exit 261, and just 35 minutes from the Raleigh-Durham Airport (RDU).
