Authentic expression and tapping into our own inner clown

Via the red nose clown, we will explore comedic timing, stage presence, breath, the absurd, problem solving in the clown world, stillness, character development, and improvisation in duos and trios. This class will be putting all the pieces together to bring a unique performance to the Wise Fool stage.

Students must sign up in advance for the entire 8-week series. No drop-ins. This class will culminate in a performance at the end of the session. The performance will take place on the evening of Friday, March 15th or Saturday, March 16th – to be determined.


Some clowning experience required.
If you have not taken a class with SJ before, please reach out and we can determine if this is the right fit for you! Contact amelia@wisefoolnm.org

Exciting News: Embracing a New Class Structure for Enhanced Learning! 

Dear Wise Fool Students,

We are thrilled to announce a significant shift in our class structure to elevate your learning experience. Beginning in the new year, over the course of the next couple of sessions, we are transitioning from majority drop-in classes to a majority series-based model, designed with your success and growth in mind. 

Each class meets once a week throughout the six week session.

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!

Why The Change? Expand

🌟 Faster Progression: The series-based model allows you to accelerate your learning journey. Each class is thoughtfully crafted to build upon the knowledge gained in the previous one, creating a more seamless path to achieving your goals.

🌟  Community Building: We believe in the power of community! With a consistent cohort of students in each series, you’ll have the opportunity to connect, collaborate, and build lasting connections.

🌟 Supportive Coaching: Our dedicated coaches are excited about this shift! The series structure enables them to provide more personalized guidance, ensuring you receive the support you need to excel in every class.

🌟 Offering more Scholarships: While we are dropping our sliding scale pricing, a session model allows us to be more equitable. By knowing expected enrollment ahead of time, a session model allows us to distribute scholarships to students in need while ensuring the long-term sustainability of a class.

What Does This Mean for You? Expand

Empowered Learning: Take control of your educational journey. The series-based model empowers you to chart a clear path towards your goals, with the flexibility to choose the series that aligns best with your interests.

Richer Connections: Forge meaningful connections with your fellow students. As you progress through the series together, you’ll share challenges, victories, and a sense of camaraderie that extends beyond the classroom.

Accelerated Growth: Experience the joy of continuous improvement. With each series, you’ll witness your skills and knowledge expanding, propelling you toward your goals at a pace that suits your learning style.

How to Enroll Expand

Before you can enroll, first you must create a profile in Pike13, our registration software: https://wisefool.pike13.com/schedule

Next, purchase a 6-Class Pass for the type of class you would like:

Now you can enroll in class!
Here are several ways that can happen:
  1. Manually enroll yourself for each class date throughout the session
  2. Email our Adult Programs Coordinator your name, the day of the week, and time of the class(es) you want to be bulk-enrolled in: amelia@wisefoolnm.org
  3. If you are having trouble enrolling online, please arrive 10-15 minutes earlier than your class start time and staff can help bulk-enroll you in person

It’s Important to note that purchasing a Class Pass does not automatically enroll you in any class! You must enroll yourself in the desired class AFTER purchasing your Class Pass.
