Private Lessons: When we hire professional teachers (usually the 3rd and 4th week of the month), we offer two 45 minute private lessons for $65 each before the regular dance lessons start. Sign up at the check in counter (I’m hoping to have online booking/payment options soon). Payment in advance and no refunds for missed or cancelled lessons — so if you book it and can’t make it find someone to replace you.
