Please try to not miss any training sessions, however we understand that you may already have plans from time to time or unexpected things could happen. Make sure to let us know and keep in contact if this is the case.
(If you have already discussed your situation with us, that is okay).
We will create comprehensive videos which will be available for you to review if you miss a session.
Please don't ask others for the partnering situation and let us know your preferences, if you have any, and we will do our best to make it happen.
Please don't share our choreo or training videos with other people or to social media. After our public performance you are welcome to share the performance videos to your heart's content! 🤩😊
We will sort out the costumes shortly to suit the theme of the song. Please note that sometimes it is hard one to make sure everyone is happy with it, so we all need to be ready to compromise.
COMMITMENT & COST:
It is a requirement of doing the choreography to attend either a Foundation or a higher level class, as techniques are outlined mainly in class and choreo training focuses on timing, styling, and performance skills and feedback, as well as some extra training on the movement. But you need to learn the key elements of the movements in the regular classes! 🙂
Choreo Team is usually run over 2 blocks (14 sessions), however we will make it work in 1 block only with some extra training sessions to make it 10 weeks of team training. We will also be running 3 extra Follower's training sessions, as the first 1:00 is entirely Ladies Styling 💃
This routine is a bit shorter than other choreographies, so should be manageable over the 10 sessions (13 sessions for Followers).
The Choreo training for Team is at a 30% discounted rate per session so will be $150 for 10 sessions with an extra charge of $50 for Follower for their 3 x Ladies Styling classes (so $200 for 13 sessions total).
>> so Total Pricing, including the the Foundation Level 2 classes is-
$300 Total for Leaders ($150 regular class + $150 choreo);
$350 Total for Followers ($150 class + $200 choreo)
Further discounts are available for anyone who is studying fulltime at uni and tafe, and we are offering the 25% student discount off classes & choreo training as well. Please Use the discount code for students, which we have provided further below under 'Discount Codes' section.
(Also, please let us know if you need any assistance or if prefer to pay in 2 instalments, 1 at start of block, and 2nd at end of block.)
Costume expense - please budget for costume cost, which we will try our best to keep affordable. We anticipate this could range from $50 up to $100, however any more expensive items (eg: jeans) we will try to choose options that you can wear again later (off stage, ie, in public 😉)
Event/Ticket expense - We are planning to perform at our Cloud9Zouk Weekender event (June 24-26), or If we decide to take our team choreography to any events, such as Brisbane Zouk Festival or other dance festivals by other organisers, which are ticketed events, you will need to purchase the applicable ticket. Most festival events will have a 'Performer Pass' which is slightly discounted. >Tickets/Passes can vary anywhere from $150 - $350 depending on the festival and duration.
For our Cloud9Zouk Weekender - Mid Year Ball event (June 24-26), the ticket price is $219, however for our Performance Team we will provide a discount of $30 by using our Team discount code, which we will provide below.
** NOTE: We have also just introduced our Buddy Passes, which are for 1 Leader and 1 Follower booking their combined pass together).
If you purchase your tickets as a Buddy Pass, you can save a further $20 each, so make sure to book with your team mate to take advantage of this. 🙂 **
We will advise you in advance if we are planning on performing at any other ticketed events, so that you can factor it into your plans and let us know in advance whether you are committed to attending and performing.
