This exceptional 2-day event takes place in Montreal, Quebec on July 29/30th, offering participants a rare and exciting opportunity to learn from the industry's top talent. This class has toured the world, with this being one of only three North American stops in 2011 (see also the New York City class and Austin, Texas class).
