Here are the key points Susan and I discussed:
- The class would be a series of one-hour sessions, once a week for 5 or 6 consecutive weeks.
- The class would be scheduled immediately following a technique class. Participation in the technique class would be required for proper warm-up.
- Students would need to register and pay for the full class series in advance. No drop-ins. No refunds for missed classes.
- A minimum number of registered, pre-paid students would be required before the class would be finalized. If there aren't enough students registered, the class won't happen — I'd expect the registration fee would be refunded in this case only.
- The instructor may need to approve your participation in advance.
Joy of Motion doesn't use live accompanists, which keeps the number of students required for a class to break even to a minimum. She thinks that number might be as low as three, though I'm not sure that's definitive. More would be better.
So... how many people are actually interested in this class?
Remember, I'm just trying to help set up the class. I'm not going to be taking this class, so don't count me as a paying student. I'm not sure I can explain why I'm doing this, aside from the feeling that there really ought to be an adult pointe class in this area.
There aren't that many local folk following this blog so you'll need to talk with your classmates. Trust me, people will be more receptive to the idea if it comes from you than from me. If there are 5 or 6 people ready to plunk money on the table I think this thing has a good chance of happening.
If interest continues there could be another 5 or 6 class series, but don't assume you can wait for a later series. If this one doesn't happen I'm not going to coordinate another one.
