I took Canasta lessons from Helaine Neiman beginning in October 2013. I initially took the lessons with the intention of playing Canasta only once every few weeks! What was I thinking? I have become obsessed with this extremely fun game! Through Helaine’s Canasta classes I have learned the rules of play, but most importantly, she taught me the nuances of the game. I am now playing in a regular Canasta game and loving every minute of it! Thanks for your great lessons Helaine!!!!!
