Registration for Community Classes Available Online  

By Lookout Staff

August 5, 2011 -- If you are a Santa Monica resident, you have until Tuesday to register online for a cornucopia of community classes offered by the City during the fall.

Class offerings include everything from zumba, for those who want to work up a sweat, to yoga or Tai Chi for the mellower set. There are also classes in beach volleyball, belly dancing, tango and square dancing, and even dog training.

Offered by Santa Monica’s Community Recreation Programs, the classes are a great way “to get healthy, have fun, meet your neighbors or learn a new skill,” said Kathy LePrevost, who manages the City’s Community Recreation Division.

“There’s something for everyone this fall,” LeProvost added.

Residents have until Tuesday to take advantage of priority online only registration. Those without internet access at home can register on computers available at all public library branches (visit for hours). Non-resident online registration begins August 10 at 6 a.m.

“The new priority online registration encourages residents to use the fastest, most efficient and sustainable means of registration,” LePrevost said.

Registrants receive immediate confirmation of their class enrollment using the online system, LePrevost said.

Class descriptions, schedules and registration forms are available in the city newsletter Seascape, which is mailed to residents and available at many public facilities, or online at

Santa Monica residents must provide proof they live in the city. Those who register must provide a driver’s license or government-issued photo ID.

They also must provide either a rental agreement, mortgage statement, or current utility bill.

An approved account is required for ALL on-line registration. You can apply for an on-line account now at

Registrations received by mail or dropped off will be processed beginning August 10 according to the date and time received at each registration office.
