Cheese tastings or classes in Vegas?

My mom has gotten into cheese lately and I'd like to get her a gift certificate for a cheese class and/or tasting in Las Vegas or Henderson area. Are there any good cheese shops in the area? The only place I could think of that would have anything close is Whole Foods but it's not quite what i'm looking for.

TIA!

    A good place to try would be Valley Cheese and Wine, 1770 West Horizon Ridge Parkway, in the Green Valley/Henderson area. I know that they do wine tastings regularly, but would not be surprised if they did similar events with cheese on occasion (they do have a nice selection).

        Yes. A nice selection, albeit a little on the pricey side.

      I used to take classes at the Creative Cooking School on Sahara. I'm not sure if they are still running.....but worth a look. They would have different themes such as chocolate, tapas, wine, etc. SO fun!
