Session Model Information:

 

Our classes meet once a week for six weeks. Wise Fool is moving toward a session registration model. That means you will be bulk enrolled for all 6 classes before the session starts. 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!

Session Dates:
Please scroll down to see the schedule for the current and upcoming sessions.
Winter: January 23 - February 27
Spring: March 14 - April 24
Summer 1: May 9 - June 19
Summer 2: June 20 - August 7
Fall 1: August 29 - October 9
Fall 2: October 10 - November 20

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.

Refund model:
100% refund prior to first week of class, 50% refund during first week of class, and no refunds or credit after the first week of classes. If there is a class cancellation due to COVID, you will either be offered a make-up class or offered a refund.

Why a session model:

Session models guarantee work for our coaches!
The drop-in model means our coaches have to prepare a class and show up to the studio even if nobody is enrolled. This is a drain on resources for our coaches and community. Knowing we have active and ongoing enrollment keeps our classes robust and healthy.
Session models allow us to be more equitable!
By knowing ahead of time about enrollment in a class, the session model allows us to distribute scholarships to students while ensuring the sustainability of the organization.
Session models encourage community!
Learning new skills is both exciting and scary. Knowing you will be returning to class with a group of familiar faces who are just as excited (and maybe a little scared) as you helps develop meaningful bonds through the experience.
Session models save you money!
you experience a class, we know you’ll want to come back! Most students attend at least 4 out of the 6 classes in a session. Paying the drop-in rate for each individual class is more expensive than bulk enrollment.

As we move away from a sense of urgency as an organization, the session model allows us to be more forward thinking and less reactive.

Take it to the Stage

$480 for 14 week session.

For kids ages 8 to 12 who have taken at least two sessions of Circus Exploration, having completed their last class in the past year. The class focus is on act creation, culminating in a final show! Students should want to dedicate themselves more seriously to circus. Coaches support youth in creating something all their own, in a fun and supportive environment! The focus on show/act creation includes choosing a circus specialty, working independently and with a group to create multiple acts and participating in a theme brainstorming session. This class supports self-motivation and requires a desire to create! Class meets twice a week- attendance is crucial for participation in the show and irregular attendance may result in less show participation. The session will end with a performance on the Friday evening of the last week of class. Availability to be present the day of the show must be confirmed upon registration.

Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:30-5pm

 

Circus Play for Families

Circus jam where parents and children play in the circus together! Families get to try stilt-walking, juggling, tumbling, partner acrobatics, hula hoops, aerial fabric, and trapeze in a safe and supportive environment. This class is an open studio format where Wise Fool coaches will be on hand to support family play and experimentation. No experience necessary! $18 drop in for one adult and one child. Additional children are $6 each class.
