Students who have taken a minimum of two sessions of classes with Wise Fool (or who have previous circus experience) may be considered. This privilege requires approval and a special orientation meeting with Wise Fool staff.

Open Training Program vs. Open Studio

Please note that our Open Training program is different than Open Studio times listed on our schedule.

Our Open Training Program give you the freedom to use the studio whenever it is available, but requires approval.

Open Studio times have specific slots on our schedule, which you can register for the same way you'd enroll in a class. Prior approval is not required as Wise Fool staff are present during Open Studio time to supervise.


Wise Fool strives to make our classes accessible! We are able to offer ASL interpretations or other accommodations upon request.

We are not currently able to offer scholarships for adult programs at this time.

We do offer a Work-Trade Program. If you are interested in learning more, please reach out or apply.

Class Registration

Wise Fool classes are on a 6-week session registration model. Each class meets once a week throughout the six week session. Our class offerings vary between sessions.

Our classes need a minimum of 4 students to be bulk enrolled for every date within a session in order for it to remain active on our schedule. Once a class has reached the 4-student minimum enrollment, it will be available to sign up for on a drop-in basis. This means you can join in and pay on a class-to-class basis.

If you want to keep seeing a specific class on our schedule, we highly encourage you to bulk enroll ahead of time - it saves you money and helps support our coaches and community!


Class Pricing

In order to ensure that everyone in Northern New Mexico has access to the magic of the circus arts, we offer a sliding scale payment policy. We allow folks to enroll at a regular price, a discounted price, or at a "pay it forward" price that helps to subsidize the cost for other students.
