Classes have a maximum number of participants based on the capacity of the room, to ensure movement and the possibility for teachers to follow the class.
The Website manages automatically the enrollments and the parity between leaders and followers, that is who leads and who follows, with a minimum disparity, however if you are not admitted to the course you will receive a notice by email at the address you provided during the registration to the Website and you will be put on the waiting list until there are no available places.
