FAYM Classes

Age limits for each class are firm! Some classes have a specific reason to limit age, other classes are more flexible. Please ask before signing up if your child's birthday falls in the middle of a semester.

Classes are filled in the order in which registration forms are received. Some classes have enrollment limits, while some classes can accommodate unlimited students. If you sign up for a class which is at capacity, you will be added to the wait list for that class.

Please read the class descriptions below to learn about the requirements, prerequisites, age limits, class sizes, materials needed, possible audition or testup requirements, and other information for a class.
