Joining Procedure

Every term-time week we have Taster Class slots for the PBA entry level course, Level 1. Please note we run 4 terms each of 10 weeks per year. New students may start any week of any term. Currently Tasters are on Saturdays 2-3pm in the wonderful top floor Balcony studio of the Academy Mews Dance Studios NW1. 

Here's how: TASTER DEAL £17.50 for 2 classes taken on 2 consecutive term-time Saturdays. If you then decide to join up pay as little as £120 at the end of Taster No 2 for the follow on 10 week PBA Inaugural Course. This is designed to set you up for progression to the next level where the Swap-in Scheme will open up for you. Once you have paid for your second term of study with PBA you may start using this arrangement, and very useful it is too, enabling our members to move between classes at their level or below to cover holidays/illness /high workload/deadlines etc. No need to book or pre-arrange, just turn up.


Please contact us at least 72hrs in advance giving us time to respond, either by emailing or by texting 078881 494212. Once your dates have been agreed you will be asked to confirm with payment on the Advanced Payment page for Taster Classes PayPal Button £17.50. Thank you.


Why? Because you are impressed with the quality and detail of the teaching, are swept away by the energy and commitment of the teacher, because the other students look really well trained, because PBA is friendly and has a great class atmosphere, because everyone works hard, loves the material and has a really good time, because you felt great after the first Taster

Payment for the Inaugural 10 week course: cash at the end of the second Taster, £120, or direct banking/transfer made at the end of the second Taster, £125, or PayPal activated within 48hrs of the second Taster, £140, see the Advanced Payment page.  After that the place cannot be guaranteed. The venue does not have facilities to process debit or credit cards.

Subsequent course fees:  this will be explained in the Inaugural Welcome Letter. The basic idea is that one pays a term in advance and quits with a term's notice.  All PBA members understand this arrangement to be protective of their interests so are happy to conform, see PBA Terms of Trade and Conditions of Sale to the Public. We are a family and as a progressive system new members are always welcome. So give it a go!  Welcome to PBA.
