To Register:

1. If you don't already have an account in this registration system, create one by clicking "Sign Up". If you do already have an account, sign in.

2. Find the class you're looking for (they are listed in alphabetical order) and register for it. If you'd like to sign up for the session of classes, purchase an 6-week green class pass for non-aerial classes or the corresponding 6-week session pass for each aerial class. These passes can only be used during the July-August Session. Unused passes do not rollover to the next session. If you'd like more flexibility, purchase either a one-time visit, or a drop-in class pass (available in 5 or 10 class chunks for aerial classes only), which is good for one year. If you'd like to pay for your visit or pass in cash or check, bring your payment on the day of class, and try to show up at least 5 minutes before class starts.

3. If it's your first class, give us a heads up at studio@wisefoolnm.org so we can get you oriented :)

4. Limited tuition assistance and work trade is available. Click here to fill out the application form.

5. Please note that there must be a minimum of 2 students to run any given class. If there are only 2 students in a class, class will run for only one hour. Also, aerial classes with only one teacher are limited to 5 students. Make sure to register ahead of time to guarantee your spot.
