These instructions are superceded by the Fall Session 2021 How To Apply page.
In-studio classes will resume in July — at limited capacity, with all participants required to wear masks. All in-studio participants must be fully vaccinated (including the two-week waiting period after your final vaccine dose) BEFORE your first in-studio class. All in-studio participants must be pre-registered for any classes they attend; the application process for limited places in the school’s in-studio classes is described below.
In-Studio Application Process, Summer 2021 You must apply via an online form for the in-studio classes in which you wish to participate (you only need to answer questions about the classes in which you want to participate). NO WALK-IN CLASSES are offered for Summer Session; please do NOT attend in-studio classes unless your application has been accepted/confirmed. This process is necessary to assure that we keep classes consistent with public health guidelines regarding limited capacity in the Western Sky (8th St.) studio space. We are hopeful that capacity limits will ease in Fall or Winter — or possibly even sooner — but in this transition period Lenzie thanks you in advance for your patience and understanding. As of mid-June: There is space remaining in all Level I, II, and III classes, and your participation is welcome! Level IV (Advanced) and Level V (Push Hands) are fully enrolled given current in-studio capacity limits, so applicants for these classes are being added to a waiting list. Some current (and possibly some future) participants in Saturday and Monday Level IV and Level V classes have been (and may be) registered for an every-other-week schedule, in order to accommodate as many students as possible. After several weeks of Summer Session classes, Lenzie will reevaluate in-studio capacity limits in light of evolving public health conditions; at that point, the initial limits may be relaxed, allowing wait-listed Level IV and V students to participate in the in-studio classes. Note that 3 of the session’s Saturday classes will be held on Zoom, not in the studio: July 31, August 28, and September 25, 2021; all registered Saturday in-studio students will be provided the Zoom links for these sessions, there is no need to fill out the Zoom classes registration form unless you plan to take additional Zoom classes. Should you need to withdraw your application / participation in in-studio classes, please e-mail TaiChiBerkeley@gmail.com ASAP, so your place can be offered to another student.
