As a Member, you can register for a permanent roster slot in the weekly ongoing class, or multiple classes, of your choice. After a registrant is added to the permanent roster of their chosen class(es) they need not register each week. A permanent member’s spot is protected in that class(es) unless they ask to be removed from the permanent roster.
Members can also drop-in to other weekly ongoing classes they are not permanent members of, space permitting. No pre-registration is necessary to attend a weekly ongoing class as a drop-in.
One class is deducted from your prepaid account each time you attend a class from our weekly ongoing class schedule. Attendance is taken by the class instructor at all weekly ongoing classes in order to keep a member's prepaid account up to date.
You are charged only for classes you attend and your prepaid package has no expiration date! We notify you by email when it's time to replenish your prepaid account.
If you cannot commit to attending a weekly class on a consistent basis (75%+ of the time), please don't register for a permanent class slot. Instead, Choice #2 is recommended (see below).
