If you prefer a shared class, the cost can be split with an additional £2 per person.

Private lesson T&C & Information

STUDIO: The Portchester studio is a small studio equipped with mirrors and ballet barres, ideal for working on posture, strength, barre work, artistry, and individual ballet movements. On Saturdays, we have access to a large dance studio in Havant.

CANCELLATIONS: Private tuition may be cancelled without charge by giving at least 48 hours' notice via call or text. Please note that leaving a message on voicemail is not considered satisfactory notice. Cancellations made within 48 hours of the scheduled lesson will incur the full fee.

SHARED PRIVATE LESSONS: There must be a prior agreement between all parties sharing the lesson. If one student is unable to attend, the options are:

  • The lesson can proceed as a private lesson with the attending student(s) paying the full fee, or

  • The absent student(s) still pays for the missed class.

If both students are absent, the 48-hour cancellation rule applies (see above).
