PLACEMENT &
CLASS FORMAT

All students must select classes at the level appropriate for their training. We support our teachers’ recommendations regarding class level. If you are trying a class that is new to you, please consult the teacher immediately after class to discuss what level will work best for your training. If you have any concerns, contact Rebecca Johnson for further discussion. Dancing at the appropriate level helps ensure your safety and allows the teacher to plan suitable class material.

IF YOU ARE UNDER 18, you must call us at (510) 654-5921 and set up a meeting with Rebecca Johnson or Abigail Hosein before attending any adult classes.

Classes are offered on a continuing basis and enrollment is open at all times (on-going/drop-in).


ATTENDANCE

We strongly urge students to arrive on time for class. Arriving on time allows students to warm up together, facilitating a safe and mutually respectful environment. If you are more than 10 minutes late, please consider opting to take another class later that day instead. Late students may enter ONLY at the teacher’s discretion. If admitted, please sign in and pay before you enter class.

When you arrive please PRINT your name on the white class sign in sheet AND put your card in the basket, pay for a single, or purchase a class card.

Some of our classes have a size limit to promote safety and the quality of the class. Please arrive early to secure a space.

Classes are 90 minutes unless otherwise noted.


PAYMENT POLICIES

Single class drop-in rate is $14 (there is a $1 discount for cash payments). Please pay at the front desk. We accept cash, checks or credit cards (MC, Visa, Discover, AMEX).
