Register here to be included in the class roster and pay for class passes online. Class passes automatically debit from your account every time you sign in for a Community Class.

To keep pace with rising costs, Pulse has raised the price of Fall 2022 classes to $20 per class for both the Performing Arts Program and Community Class drop-ins. Discounts are still available for bundles of 10 or 20 class passes, and students are welcome to apply for tuition assistance – no one has ever been turned away from Pulse for inability to pay for class.
