The first week of in-studio private lessons using our Phase 2 Safety Protocols has gone very well!  

Thank you so much to all families who were able to join us and help to practice our new procedures.

Private Lessons may now be booked online with Mr Carney or with Miss Seira.

  • Use the calendar icon or arrows to scroll by week through the schedule to find other lesson times.
  • Classes are date-specific, so a lesson may be booked one week but available the next week.

Lesson Times:

  • Mr Carney is teaching in-studio Ballet daily, Monday to Saturday
  • Miss Seira is teaching in-studio Ballet or Modern-Jazz on Tue/Wed/Sat
  • Lessons shown in Green are available on that date – select to enrol

  • If you can’t find a lesson time that works for you, please contact us as we can add more lesson times.

Lesson Costs:

  • $80/hr with Mr Carney
  • $60/hr or $45/45 min with Miss Seira

Lesson Payment:

  • Payment is only required prior to each class, to assist families with budgeting.

    • You can choose to update the payment amount at checkout to pay only for your next class.
  • Payment is accepted by Visa/Mastercard online or by e-transfer to (auto-deposit).
    • You will receive an email receipt for either payment method.

    • If two students in the same level would like to share a lesson time, please let me know.
  • We will verify our safety procedures with 2 teachers and 4 students in the building during this time.
  • Online Live Classes will continue during this time.
  • We plan to be ready for our 4-students-per-class in-studio schedule by July 6 (yay!!)
