Kelly teaches classes to families for a ridiculously low price through PRIDE. Childcare is even available! All classes last for 4 weeks and meet for 2 hours each week. They meet at Brookwood Church in Simpsonville. However, the classes are not affiliated with Brookwood and do not have a religious component. Here is the fall line-up:
