The following pricing policy is in place for 1½ hour classes run on a freelance/hall hire basis.
1) Students are invited to pay for blocks of classes, normally 5 weeks, payable on first attendance. This encourages commitment and regular attendance from students, and has the advantages of:
v ensuring the sustainability of the class (providing minimum numbers are achieved to cover costs)
v giving the student priority in the event of oversubscribed
v enabling students to progress together, and work towards e.g. a complete piece of choreography, performance event, etc.
Current class fees are:
i) £25.00 per 5-week block (£20.00 for Over 65s)
Multiple class discounts:
ii) 2 classes a week = £40.00 per 5-week block (£35.00 for
iii) 3 classes a week = £55.00 per 5-week block (£45.00 for
Where blocks are fewer than 5 weeks, rounded up pro-rata rates will be charged and students will be informed of the cost in advance. For option ii) students are asked to specify which 2 area classes they are attending.
2) In recognition that occasionally a student knows in advance they can’t make all the sessions in a block, a pay-as-you-go rate is offered, currently £7.00 (£6 for Over 65s). Depending on how many classes are attended, it may be more economical to pay the block fee (payable on first attendance).
3) New students can join at any time and either pay for a no-obligation taster class at £5.00 (£4.00 for Over 65s), or pay for all the remaining classes in the current block at the reduced rate. Subsequent fees will be as 1 or 2 above.
4) Class fees will only be refunded in the event that classes are cancelled. For this reason fees are set as low and manageable as possible and this policy aims to ensure sustainability, and parity and affordability for all students.

Odalisque video footage
On occasion friends and family members may video our performances at events, both private and public. For both recreational and professional dancers it is important that we are happy with any footage that might be published on the internet or other public medium. We ask film makers to respect this and have agreed the following policy.
v The film maker to obtain consent from all participants prior to filming
v All footage e.g. choreographed dances, general dancing, reportage, etc.to be seen by participating dancers prior to publishing
v Approved footage only to be published on www.alanyabellydance.com as the sole portal
v Footage to be removed on request at any time
Links to the website can be posted as required via e-mail and social networking sites.
We may also be filmed by other audience members at public events, although we could request that event organisers restrict this if desired.
An added protection is that whilst the copyright of public filming currently rests with the film maker, I hold the copyright to my choreography and my consent is required by anyone filming or publishing it.
