Monthly Practice Pass Perk

We know practicing your own skills can be a scheduling challenge, so we would like to make it easier for you.

When freelance instructors complete and pay for 5 hours of instruction in a calendar month, they are awarded a free monthly practice pass for the following month.  This pass provides access to the shared ballroom floor during normal business hours.  The billing minimum to receive this perk is:

  • (5) private room rentals
  • (5) 60-minute lessons on the ballroom floor
  • (6.5) 45-minute lessons on the ballroom floor
  • or a combination therefore totaling $65.00 of rental fees.
