ADULT CLASSES at Hyde Park School of Dance: How does it work?

To ensure the safety of all of our students and teachers and because of our 8 student limit for studio classes this Fall, adult classes will work a little differently this year.

For Fall Session 1, adult students may attend Tuesday virtual Pilates or Wednesday Teen/Adult Ballet: Technique and Toning in Studio 2 on a drop-in basis by either paying for each class individually or with a pre-paid class card. Adult students may also drop-in to African for Everyone on Fridays in Studio 2, a free community class.

To attend any class in the studio, YOU MUST REGISTER OR RESERVE A SPOT TO ATTEND AT LEAST 4 HOURS IN ADVANCE OF THE START OF CLASS. Adult students must have an online profile set up with us in order to register or reserve a spot. See below for more information about how to set up a profile, reserve a spot in class, and payment options. If you would like to attend Friday virtual Floor Barre, you must register for the full 8-wk series or reserve a drop-in spot with an admin via email.

These classes are mixed-level, and are appropriate for intermediate dancers, adults who danced as children but have taken years off, and brand new novices alike!

When can I start?

Any time!  There’s no need to wait until the next enrollment period - adults who are just beginning with us may attend their first class at any point during the session. Classes specifically designed for adults attending on a drop-in basis are always listed on our current class schedule. Find a class you’re interested in and come as soon as you’re able!


 

How do I reserve a spot in class?

Set up a profile with Classbug, our online registration portal (if the system says there is already an account using your information and you don't remember your password, please reach out to admin@hydeparkdance.org to reset the account for your continued use). Once you have a profile set up, you may purchase specific classes individually or purchase a class card to use for classes that allow adult students.

Your spot in a class is reserved when you purchase it online. You may also reserve a spot in a studio class by calling our office or emailing admin@hydeparkdance.org at least 4 hours in advance of the class and bringing CASH OR CHECK payment to the studio when attending. Students who wish to take Friday virtual Floor Barre on a drop-in basis must also contact the office at least 4 hours in advance of the class and pay online. 

When reserving a spot in a studio class, please be as certain as possible about your attendance that day since spots are limited (no more than 8 students per class).

How do I pay?

Pay As You Go

You can pay online for each individual class you attend either upon personal registration or in conversation with an admin (applies to all adult drop-ins). If you are attending a studio class like Teen/Adult Ballet and have already reserved your spot with an admin, you may bring a cash or check payment to the studio when you come for class.

Class Cards

If you are attending classes on a regular basis, you may prefer to pay using one of our Eight Class Cards. Each card is non-refundable and never expires.

Our classic 8-class card is going virtual! (with paper options available upon request). When you purchase an online class card, you can subsequently sign up for Pilates and Teen/Adult Ballet classes at your leisure (just put the individual class in your cart and an option will pop up asking if you would like to use a credit from your class card)!

If you have a pre-existing paper card you would like to make virtual, a virtual card you would like to have a paper version of, or if you qualify to purchase a class card at one of our reduced rates, please contact admin@hydeparkdance.org. If you have a paper card, you still MUST reserve a spot in the drop-in you plan to attend, please do not show up to a studio without reserving a spot first.
