Classes

Do you want to keep your mind and body sharp? Our core program is our outstanding and diverse offerings of more than 75 weekly classes (fewer this Fall during the Pandemic!), including classes in movement, the humanities, and the arts. 

Fall 2020 weekly classes started September 21-25 and are very affordable and diverse! There’s still time to sign up! 
24 classes are happening, and 20 are on-line (Zoom, phone option also available). Over half are movement classes. Many classes also open to people under age 50, and no classes have limits on town of residence.

Please contact us at msac@montpelier-vt.org if you have questions or need help to enroll. If need be, we can place you in your desired class, and you can send payment later. If you’re running into any problems with the online system related to fees or membership, just let us know.

If you need help with Zoom, please click here for some helpful information. If you’d like more help, contact us so we can assist you. We may schedule more Zoom trainings with Chet in the weeks to come, depending on need. Or let us know if you need help for other technology questions!   Link to online registration is also below.

Many of our talented instructors are or will be offering remote classes independently/privately, and we are pleased to provide this list that gets updated periodically. Click here. Please support them while keeping yourself engaged and active! In some cases, private classes have ended when instructors began teaching with MSAC in late September. Some instructors will continue teaching privately (only), and some will be doing a combination of MSAC and private classes. Ask us if you are confused about any particular teacher!

If you were a member of MSAC in FY20 (through June 30, 2020), you will NOT need to renew your membership to take Fall classes. Only new members will need to join for the first time. Some classes are open to the public and city employees.

Class fee increases are $5-10 for each 10-12 week series, or in most cases, less than $1 per session. We remain committed to keeping programs affordable and safe, to providing Financial Aid to all who request it, and to doing our best to meet city requirements.

There are three ways to sign up: 1) print a registration form, fill it out, and drop it off in our lockbox in the side entrance. 2) mail your completed registration form to 58 Barre Street to arrive by September 2. 3) register online, calling 223-2518 or emailing msac@montpelier-vt.org if you need a user-id and password.

We are providing limited copies in our side entrance. We encourage you to print your own copies at home or call us if you need one mailed.
