Pricing Changes coming in September, 2013

Can you believe the studio is 3 years old?  I find it challenging to wrap my head around at times!  We’ve come a long way since opening our doors in 2010! We now have 2 classrooms and a team of instructors, have added Yoga, Pilates, Hula Hooping, Personal Training, and Massage (coming 7/18) to the offerings at the studio, and need to raise the prices to continue to grow into our 4th year (and beyond).

Effective September 1st, our new pricing for full-length classes (45 – 75 minutes) will be as follows:

  • Drop-in: $18
  • 5-class card: $70 ($14 per class)
  • 10-class card: $120 ($12 per class)

For 30-minute classes, pricing will be as follows:

  • Drop-in: $9
  • 5-class card: $35 ($7 per class)
  • 10-class card: $60 ($6 per class)

Membership prices will change to the following:

  • Half-Circle Membership: $120/month (12-mo. contract), $130/month (6-mo. contract)
  • Benefits include:
    • unlimited classes
    • yoga mat storage
    • studio cubby
    • $50 per hr for Personal Training (normally $75)
    • $60 per hr for Massage (normally $70)
    • free Hip Circle Hafla registration
  • Full-Circle Membership: $150/month (12-mo contract), $160/month (6-mo. contract)
  • Benefits include:
    • unlimited classes
    • yoga mat storage
    • studio cubby
    • $40 per hr for Personal Training (normally $75)
    • $55 per hr for Massage (normally $70)
    • 15% off Workshop registrations
    • 10% off retail
    • free Dance With Me, Toddler! workshop registration
    • free Hip Circle Hafla registration

These changes will bring our pricing closer to what is normal for independent dance and fitness studios in the area (though we’re still less than most yoga/Pilates/dance studios), and will allow us to be more aggressive with discounting.  I am hoping it will also give me the ability to extend scholarship options but will have to wait a bit to make that happen.

 

All class cards purchased now at the current pricing will remain active for 6 months from date of purchase, so you can stock up now and save.  If you’re currently a member, your dues will remain the same for as long as you maintain your membership in good standing.  If you let your membership lapse or decide not to renew, whatever rates are in effect if and when you wish to rejoin will apply to you at that time.  Anyone joining in July or August of this year will be able to lock in our current member pricing as well.

I thank you for your support and look forward to having you continue to be a part of the studio and watching/helping us grow!
