Frequently Asked Questions

Are private classes for beginners?

Yes, I have many clients who book private classes who are beginners, and have never even danced before. Clients do private classes for a variety of reasons, including gaining confidence to eventually join a group class at a later stage. The 20min free consultation will help us identify what is really important for you to get out of the private sessions and how we will make your goal a reality.

Where are the private classes taking place?

We teach our private classes near Bond Street tube station in London. However, if your timeslot requests clash with studio availabilities, we alternatively use dance studios near Camden Town and Elephant & Castle.

Can I upgrade my package?

Yes, if during the process you feel you want to extend your private class bundle from 6 to 10 sessions, you can do so by just paying the difference. We also understand work commitments change, so you can also upgrade from a weekday package to an evening & weekends package.

How do I book my private sessions?

Once you buy a package, you can either book in one timeslot/day at the time by email, or request a regular weekly timeslot. All classes shall be used within a period of 6 months. We have clients with busy schedules and we want to give you flexibility when it comes to booking in your private sessions.

What happens if I cancel a session?

If you have already booked and confirmed in a timeslot for your private session, we will only allow you to change a booking once through the course of your package. If cancellation occurs more than once, we are unable to refund/change another booking and your session will be counted. We offer the advantage to book classes last minute or nearer the time, which allows you to have a busy life style and not worry about cancelling afterwards.

What should I wear?

Bring a pair of trainers/sneakers as you will feel more comforable wearing these than being bare feet. Wear something comfortable. Tracksuit bottoms, T-shirt, leggings or anything you would wear to go to the gym are perfect.

Who is teaching the private classes?

Most classes will be taught by Cindy Claes. But when she is not available, class will be taught by an experienced member of the Cindy Claes Productions’ team. The teacher will be informed of your goals and progress.

Can I film the private classes?

We do not allow full classes to be recorded. However, if there is a section of class you wish to record to practice a specific or a piece of choreography, we of course allow clients to film it for personnal use with their phones. Some clients prefer to take notes to remember information given during class.

Can I start classes immediately?

We can usually book you in within the next week or two. However, some times of the year are extremely busy and the waiting could be longer. We deliver high quality classes, Cindy Claes and all our teachers are highy experienced dance practionners. We work with a small but high qualified team.

Which dance styles can we cover?

Cindy Claes is specialised in Hiphop, Dancehall, Krump. She trained and performed internationally, and researched these cultures in-depth. She has helped private clients to discover themselves as dancers and movers. She has also been trained in Afrobeats, House, Salsa, Contemporary, etc. but will only cover a few basics if clients request a wider variety of specific styles.

My schedule varies, which package should I choose?

If you will need to book some classes during the day, and some classes during the evenings / weekends, please sign up for an evening & weekends package. We will allow you to book daytime sessions as well as evening / weekend sessions with these bundles.

Can we do an intensive?

Yes, we have had clients in the past who needed to learn choreography quickly (wedding / birthday / anniversary / family event / showcase / etc) or who wanted to book all their classes within a period of a week.

You can book a bundle and ask to do all your classes in the same week. HOWEVER, please drop us an email beforehand to make sure we have teachers available for last minute requests or intensives.

Do I have to book an intro session or I can book a bundle straight away?

You don’t have to book an intro session, you can book a bundle of 6 or 10 classes straight away. Some of our clients have already taken part to our collective classes and know what to expect.

The intro session is an opportunity for people to try out a private class without any further long term commitment.

Can you teach me choreography?

Yes, we can create choreography for your wedding for example. You will need to send us your soundtrack before the start of class.

Please note that if you are a singer / performer and request complex choreography to be developped, or would like to work with us on your artistic vision / brand / music video / etc., this service is not included in the private classes. In this case, we recommend you get in touch with us directly for artistic consultancy so that we can support you with our creative eye and coaching.

Who are the private classes for?

  • busy people who need flexibility
  • beginners who want to gain confidence and more experience before joining a group class
  • soon-to-wed couples who want to be ready for their first dance
  • singers who need coaching  and want to work on their stage presence
  • dance students who want more 1to1 attention
  • small groups of friends (max 3) who want to have fun together

Private classes are 1 hour long and can either be used by yourself or by a small group of maximum 3 people.

Where are the private classes being held?

We teach all our private classes near Bond Street tube station in London. However, if your timeslot requests clash with studio availability, we have alternative locations near Waterloo/Elephant and Castle.

Why private classes?

Private classes allow you to develop a general sense of confidence and well being.

One-to-one attention allows the teacher to focus on your specific needs, improve your technique, work on choreography or freestyle, develop stage presence, etc. Our free 20min consultation allows us to discuss your needs and create an action plan for you.

Private classes are also very conventient, book it when it suits your schedule!

Private classes help you feel more in tune with your body. It nurtures your creativity, and you learn to connect body and mind.

We believe that dance classes are more than just a dance class. It is about acquiring skills and knowledge you can then also apply to all areas of your life.

When signing up for a bundle of classes, you be able to read the Dance Backpackers’ TV magazine, where you will be able to catch up on the incredible stories of artists who are changing the world.

The bundle of 10 classes also gives you free entry to two of our collective classes. This is because many beginners do private classes with the goal to join a group class afterwards. Once you have completed your 10 sessions, you can enjoy these two classes for fun, or celebrate it as your transition into collective classes!
