If learning how to play canasta is in "the cards" for you, then look no further than to Helaine Neiman as your teacher.
I joined a group 2 years ago on a whim with 5 other local women. Helaine was a superb teacher. She was patient as we learned the rules, supportive as we began playing and was always available to advise us even after our lessons were completed.
As a group, we have grown from 6 acquaintances into 6 good friends, celebrating life's ups and downs every Monday night and it goes without saying that YES, we've become Masta Canasta graduates thanks to Helaine.
