Autumn Registration

How to register for AUTUMN CLASSES, September – December 2022

Our organization has four categories of students and three different ways to register: New, Returning, Specific in-person locations, and International Students. Which one are you?

1 – New Students:

A new student is someone who has either: Not taken a class with our organization before or who has not taken a class with us within the last few years. If you are one of the above, then you will need to register online and create a student profile.

If you need help registering for the first time on this website, we can help. Please CONTACT US!

      • Once “signed in” you can select all the classes and/or videos you wish you join.
      • If you need help with this process, and you would prefer us to sign you up, there are two ways to do this:
        • 1) Please CONTACT US and we will reply to you by email with an easy-to-fill-out form.
        • 2) You can phone us and we will help you over the phone to register.
