    To all that have rsvp'd as going please make sure you contact the YMCA to register for the class. Space is limited and I have no control over registeration and just because you said you are coming on here does not mean you are signed up for the class the link is above in the event discription. If there are any please feel free to ask. The other thing is the YMCA is not allowing spectators because we are doing this be for they are open. They are opening up just for this class, so only the ones that are registers for the class will be allowed in to the YMCA.
