Flamenco Chicago Classes & Events
How our scheduling works:
Our regular weekly classes usually run in 6-week, 6-class sessions at $108/session prepaid online in advance. Students must enroll by the start date of each class, and, if you're on our elist, we'll be letting you know about special discounts and offers available only to persons on our list (such as our early-bird enrollment tuition discount, occasional opportunities to join a class in progress after the start date if we have room, and invitations to special events).
Students are required to enroll for each full 6-week session in advance. There is no "pay as you go" option at our studio. If you would like to try a class before enrolling, please do this in advance of a new session beginning. Drop-in classes for the purpose of trying out a class level are $24 per hour, cash only.
(Children ages 8 and up are welcomed in our adult classes, with parental supervision. We are not offering dedicated children's classes at this time, and find that older children do better in our leveled adult program rather than in a multi-age kids' class.)
Classes tend to rise up through proficiency levels at the same day and time, so, for example, the time slot that is currently Fundamentals 1 will become a Fundamentals 2 the next session, and a Basic 1 level the session after that, and will typically remain at Basic 1 level for a few sessions before being promoted to Basic 2. If we required our students to change the day and time of their classes every time they moved up a level, we would lose most of our students due to schedule conflicts, so this is the reason we do things the way we do. Our system also allows friendships and community to form as students are learning together, in the same group, for years at a time.
For students who are between levels, and would like to catch up with the skills taught in a class level slightly higher than their own, private lessons are always available, at a cost of $70-$90 per hour, depending on the teacher. Students who are focused and have some natural ability for dance can learn the equivalent of 6 weeks of class material in just one private lesson hour.
Dates for our next two sessions are:
Fall II: October 16 through November 24 (6 weeks Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays / 5 weeks Thursdays because of Thanksgiving on 11/22)
Winter I: November 27 through January 5
