Group classes offered at Born 2 Dance Studio are either Enrollment-Session or Open-Session classes, as described below:
1) Enrollment-Session Classes
Enrollment-Session Classes are simply Group Classes that require "enrollment" in the entire session, as opposed to just showing up to class periodically.
The reason being is that Enrollment-Session classes are cumulative in nature. They focus heavily on "technique" and on building the core foundation for the dance style, and therefore, what you learn in one week's class becomes imperative for the next.
By policy, students have up until the fourth week of class to enroll in the session. After that, registration is closed to new students, unless instructor's permission is granted.
We strive to ensure that our students enjoy their classes without the added inconvenience of new students joining in late in the session, so please do your best to register early and within the noted deadline.
Enrollment-Session Classes are noted as such on the Class Schedule, They include Belly Dance (Technique,) Belly Dance (Performance,) Salsa, Bollywood, Persian Dance and Flamenco.
2) Open-Session Classes
Open-session classes are non-cumulative and do not require enrollment. While students can enroll in an entire Open-Session, they are also allowed to just "Drop In" and attend one class at a time only paying for that single class ($20 per drop-in for 1-hour classes or $15 for 45-minute classes.)
Open-Session classes focus on teaching a new routine or set of movements in every class, so that students can attend one class at a time and still benefit from each class individually.
Of course enrolling in an Open-Session class is cheaper than just attending one drop-in at at time (averages out to $15 per class vs. $20 for Drop-Ins.) Also please note that most of our classes tend to fill up
Open-Session Classes are noted as such on the Class Schedule. They include Exotic Dance, Break Dance, Hip Hop, Zumba and Pilates, as well as all workout classes (i.e. Belly Dance Workout, Salsa Aerobics, Bollywood Workout, etc.)
