We can't wait to welcome new and returning students to Stagebridge! We were so glad that so many of you joined us this Spring and Summer, and we hope to see you back in the Fall. For those of you returning after a session off, welcome back, and for brand new students, welcome to your new favorite place! If you know which classes you'd like to take, make sure to sign up and pay sooner rather than later and reserve your spot. You will still have the option to switch classes through the first week. Please note that we cannot process any registrations before 10:00AM on August 26th. If you call us or email to register before registration opens, you risk losing your spot in class.

To register in person, stop by the First Congregational Church of Oakland any time after 10:00AM on Monday August 26, 2019. We'll have a table set up in the atrium from 10:00-11:00AM and we will be able to take registrations, answer questions, and accept payments via cash, check and credit card. We strongly encourage students to pay with cash or check in order to avoid credit card fees! There is a 2.7% processing fee for all credit card transactions taken in-person and a 2.9% +$0.30 processing fee for all credit card transactions taken online and over the phone.
After 11:00AM, you may come to our office on the second floor to sign up and pay for Summer classes. Our office is open Monday-Thursday 9:30am-4:30pm and Friday 9:30am-12:30pm.
We do not recommend phone registrations the first day. While we are happy to take registrations by phone, we will take sign-ups in the order in which they are received. Our first day is often very busy, and we honor in-person and online registrations at the time that they occur.
Frequently Asked Questions:
A little bit about the class schedule...
If a class you would like is full, please contact our office or indicate on the online form that you wish to be placed on the wait-list. Everyone is welcome to attend the first day of class, but please be advised that attending the first class does not guarantee a spot if you have not already registered. We encourage students to also attend other classes they are interested in the first week, especially if they are on wait-lists for other classes. You never know when you might find your new favorite class. Wait-lists often open up the first week of class, so don't lose hope!
We appreciate that our students continue to support Stagebridge by taking our classes and telling their friends! While we understand that class costs might seem high, please keep in mind that we keep our registration fees as low as possible while still ensuring that we compensate our instructors fairly and cover our staff time and other overhead expenses. We bet you won't find lower costs for equal quality anywhere else, and we want to keep it that way! Our classes are priced according to class time and length and number of instructors. Classes that have an enrollment smaller than 10 or have associated costs for equipment may have higher registration fees. If you have a concern about class costs, you are welcome to request a payment plan, or request a scholarship or work-study.
We have a limited number of full and partial scholarships and work-study opportunities, which are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, pending Executive Director approval. Unfortunately, we are not always able to award scholarships to everyone who requests them. Some classes will not be eligible for full and/or partial scholarships. If you have any questions about our scholarship policies or process, please contact Lily at [email protected] or call 510-444-4755.
