Private Individual and Private Group Instruction

Let me help you unleash your love of dance!

Private sessions are very flexible in nature and can be arranged on any topic. Together, we can design private classes to help you reach your dance goals. Investing in private sessions is a great way to :

☀ Receive personalized attention, feedback and instruction on technique, improvisation, choreography and dance styles
☀ Supplement dance training for dancers who cannot schedule a regular weekly class, dancers who've been out of practice and would like brush-up lessons or for dancers who have missed some classes and require make-up classes
☀ Polish performance skills and assist dancers wanting to achieve a high level of mastery of the art form or become professional

Private Individual Instruction

One-on-one instruction provides a great learning experience. Once a student has completed her first intermediate level class she can book a special 1hr private session with Barb, at no cost, in order to asses where she is at in her personal dance journey. The cost for a student who wishes to book one private class is $50 +hst.

Do you really want to bring your dance to the next level? Are you feeling stuck in your personal dance journey? Do you need support & guidance to bring your dance to move forward? Are you ready to see how the struggles you are facing in your dance often mirror / parallel the ones that are in your personal life? Are you ready to address these struggles and move thru them? If so, make a commitment and work towards the change you are ready to embark upon with a special 6 week private intensive session that focuses on the areas of the dance YOU want to focus on. After an initial 1hr assessment session, Barb will come up with a course outline & time frame to address the areas that need to become un-stuck. The cost for a 6 week private session is $250 +hst.

Please see below for additional information and available times.

Students moving directly into Intermediate level classes

A student with previous experience in the dance who wishes to joint the intermediate level must make arrangements to go over key concepts and learn the basics of the Studio Sephira teaching model. There are a number of options available :

☀ drop-in to a minimum of 5 beginner level classes at a cost of $65+hst
☀ schedule a special 2.5 hr private session at a cost of $50 +hst
☀ schedule a 6 week private session at the cost of $200 +hst

Private Group Instruction

Small group (1-5 people), medium sized group (6-13 people) or large group (14-20 people) privates sessions can be customized to fit your group's needs. Theses sessions are perfect for like-minded friends who are curious about the dance and not able to make the time slot for the sessions offered at the Studio. Experienced dancers wanting instruction not offered in the regular schedule can organize private sessions together. A private session is also a nice option for a number of special occasions such as:

☀ Bachelorette parties & Bridal showers
☀ Weddings & Baby showers
☀ Girls night out & Birthday parties
☀ Women's symposiums & Special interest groups
☀ Corporate retreats & Conventions

Studio Sephira offers packages for parties. If you would like a performance and belly dance lesson to add pizazz and fun to your event, please contact the Studio at 383-8138 or
