- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I charge $70 for 1 hour or $80 for 1 1/2 hrs for studio lessons, home visit prices depend on my travel distance, wedding and special occasion choreography always included in the price
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We communicate through Thumbtack and text and I ask about the vision that they have for their special occasion dance, or if they want lessons just in general and not for a special occasion, I find out which dances they want to learn. I ask for their song title if they are learning for a special occasion like a wedding and then I choreograph their dance exactly to fit their music. On their very first lesson, their dance is completely choreographed and ready for them to learn. We usually don't get the entire dance done the first lesson, but by second lesson, they know their dance and then we can really get into the details of the dance for the rest of their lessons.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have many years of jazz and ballet and ballroom training. I have a Bachelor's degree in Education. I have performed in 11 musicals and also danced professionally in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, and Japan in addition to teaching for major ballroom studios for 12 yrs and have taught independently for 15 yrs. I became Zumba certified and always try to get new choreography ideas, and techniques from many sources. I feel that the study of dance is a lifetime study. There is always something new to learn.
