Our Northeastern Near You series kicked off in September 2017 with a tour across the state of California. More than a hundred of you joined us for 13 events, in 9 cities, over 6 days! Huskies were turned on their heads (literally!) in a paddleboard yoga class in Marina del Rey, trained in classical French techniques in a macaron-making class in San Francisco, gathered for a community barbeque in La Jolla, and brought behind the scenes in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles!CLOSE
