Well, yes and no. I do not let anyone sit and watch a class. I find it SERIOUSLY disrupts the flow of the class and makes the students participating feel awkward and self-conscious. I am just not willing to do that to my sweet students! So sorry, no observers.
First day tryout: I do however have a "special try out policy." You can come on the first day of a course, participate in the class, pay a pro-rated fee based on the current 5 week course rate and if you would like, walk out the door and never come back. This hardly ever happens, but it is a policy that I have.
You can only do this on the first day of a 5-week course, because otherwise we will be working on choreography and you would not be able to fully participate. And, the "special try out policy" is only an option if the class is not filled up with pre-registered students. If you would like to take advantage of the "special try out policy," do make sure to give me a call or e-mail me the day before the start date of the class you want to attend. You will need to make sure there is a spot available for you.
Women only: While there are some studios that allow men to take classes, we don't.
Male belly dancers are just not the same
Can I bring my child(ren) with me?
Can I check out the place? Yes, before or after class. But its a dance studio - large floor with mirrors on the wall. Unlike a gym, it is nicely decorated, and we have a shopping area.
