Re-Opening Phase 2 – Two-Studio Private Lessons

June 18, 2020

The second week of two-studio private lessons using our Phase 2 Safety Protocols is going very well!  

Thank you again to those who are joining us this week.

Semi-Private Lessons may now be booked with Mr Carney or Miss Seira.
  • Mr Carney is available Monday to Saturday for in-studio Ballet.
  • Miss Seira is available Tuesday to Saturday for in-studio Ballet, Pointe, Character or Modern-Jazz.

How do you book Semi-Private Lessons?

Step 1:  Find an available private lesson time in the online schedule.

  • 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.
  • Lessons shown in Green are available on that date – select to enrol
  • Lessons shown in Red are taken for that date – select to join the waitlist in case someone cancels.

Step 2: Enrol one student into the lesson on a specific date, and checkout.

  • You can change the Amount Due at checkout to be half of the class fee, or 
  • You can pay the full lesson amount and arrange to split the fee between your families.

Step 3: Enrol the second student for the same class and date.  

  • The second student will be added to the waitlist.
  • The teacher will now confirm that they can be taught at the same level.

Step 4: Email to confirm who is to share which class.  

  • The second student will be enrolled once approved by the teacher.
  • The class charge will be split between the two families accounts, unless you tell us otherwise.
