All our classes, including the advanced levels, and the classical technique courses, are diverse.” says Shachi Phene, Assistant Director at Ajna Dance.

“As a farm-to-table cooking class and camp, we are unique in a sense that we emphasize how our ingredients are grown from seed to table. At each class we highlight the local farmers who provide our ingredients, its connection to the earth, as well as seasonality and sustainability. After each class, we even bring our food scraps to the local composter. We conclude each kids class with a thank you to the farmers who supply our food and to the student chefs who made the meal possible!” Jennifer Lisondra.
