The rotation restarts on the first Wednesday of the month; jump in at any point in the month, take classes in any order, and feel prepared leveling up! No prior registration required.

The Venue

The Cambridge Masonic Hall is a fabulous venue and we are lucky to call it our home! The wood floors are well taken care of, with plenty of space for our 125+ regular attendees. We have a state of the art sound system that fills the room, ambient lighting, and a kitchen for water (plus the occasional treat). In addition to free off-street parking right around the corner, we are steps away from the red line (Porter Square) and the 77 and 96 bus lines.
