Adult/Teen Classes

We are offering safe in-studio classes. In-studio classes require a mask and we are maintaining a minimum of 6' physical distance at all times. For more information on our COVID Policies and Procedures please visit this website:

To Register:

We are moving to a Session Registration Model! What does this mean?

Our classes meet once a week for six weeks. Our classes need a minimum of four students enrolled for the full session (all 6 classes) to remain active on our schedule. Classes that reach the 4-student enrollment minimum will then be able to offer drop-ins, meaning you can join and pay on a class-to-class basis. We highly encourage you to enroll ahead of time- it saves you money and helps our coaches and community!

How to enroll in a session:
1. Visit our registration software, Pike13 here. If you do not have a profile create a profile.
2. Purchase a 6 class pass for the type of class you would like (purple or green).
Purple: https://wisefool.pike13.com/pack_products/730563
Green: https://wisefool.pike13.com/pack_products/428338
3. Either enroll yourself in each individual class in the session through the calendar or Email amelia@wisefoolnm.org the name and time of the classes you want to enroll in and our Adult Programs Coordinator will bulk enroll you.
