Summer 2013 Classes Starting July!


June 30, 2013 Newsletter Here

My summer class session is FINALLY here, with classes starting tomorrow Monday, July 1 and Wednesday, July 3.

For the Monday’s Beginning Classic at 5:30, you’ll need to call ahead – it’s about full but you can join the wait list. For all others just drop by. See schedule and pricing below, and SAVE THE DATE – September 7 – for this fall’s Under the Olive Tree.


New Class Pricing Effective January 2013

I’ve held off increasing tuition for over 10 years and have loved offering the very flexible punch cards. However, financial realities require me to make a modest increase and switch to monthly tuition. Teaching belly dance is truly a labor of love for me and this change makes it possible to keep it up. Thanks for your understanding and I hope to see you in class!

1 class per week: $44/month
2 classes per week: $76/month ($88 value)
Unlimited pass: $82/month ($176 value)

First Class FREE! (may not be combined with other offers)
$12 per class to drop-in

No refunds for missed classes. Students can use a missed class credit for one other class in the same month. Tuition is due the first class of each month. Students starting in the middle of the month may pay a pro-rated tuition.

All existing punch cards will be honored.
