Fall 2021-2022 Program
All classes will start virtually (online) and then we anticipate a gradual opening of classes for in-person learning. Once in a virtual class, your instructor will advise you when your location will open for in-person learning.
Returning learners: If you were in our June or summer classes and have let your instructor know that you want to return in Sept. you DO NOT need to pre-register. Your instructor will contact you on the first day of classes, Sept. 7, 2021.
Pre-registration starts Sept 1, 2021: If you have not preregistered in one of our sites, but have been assessed by the YMCA and wish to return to one of our classes, please choose the class location from our brochure, then contact one of the Administration sites to register.
