Course List

The Fall session runs September 12 to December 17, unless otherwise noted. Pulse studios are fully closed October 10, November 11, and November 23-27.
Spring session begins January 2 and class schedules will be available online beginning December 8.

To find and sign up for a class, create an account and use the search filters to identify classes by category, type, level, and day of the week. You may also register in-person at Berkshire Pulse studios, Monday through Saturday, September 6-10, 10am-5pm. (Pulse Studios are fully closed August 29-September 5.)

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.

If you do not yet have an account with the site, please create one on the My Account page. ALSO please be sure to complete the ‘Account details‘ section of the My Accounts page and make sure that all of your information is current, including for any children you will be registering for classes. Thank you!
