Yes, as long as space is available. However, we strongly encourage you to register in advance. Many of our classes are very popular and fill up quickly, so we suggest you register as early as possible once you know your availability. Also, if you wait until the day of class you run the risk of finding out that the class you wanted may have been cancelled due to low enrollment. Registering in advance also saves you time. Online registration closes three days before a class begins, so you will need to phone, fax or walk in last-minute registrations. If you are registering the day of class, please allow 30 minutes for walk-in registration. Please note that our office is not opened on Saturdays or Sundays, so please register for weekend classes by the Friday prior.
