GS and TT

Eventbrite - ATS® Reunion 2018

 About GS and TT

General Skills and Teacher Training are offered in conjunction with ATS® Reunion so that our out-of-town and out-of-country friends can maximize their travel to the US. General skills will occur on Sunday-Wednesday, leaving participants with the day off on Thursday to take the ATS® with Props Intensive or schedule a Micro-Technique Clinic appointment with a ATT graduate. Registration for ATS® Reunion is separate from registration for GS and TT. We hope you will add the ATS® Reunion activities onto your GS or TT experience.

Registration will open April 1, 2017
