The studios I work at allow you to stay for 15-30 minutes after a private lesson to review.  Is that the case for everyone?  Or do you have to pay extra or is it not allowed...

It is allowed, in my case, but it's not always practical, depending on how many lessons they have scheduled after mine.

The is the FIRST time I heard that you are restricted to practice after a lesson. Just about every studio/place I danced, there is no such rule.

I suppose that it make sense, if you have to pay for your floor time. The studio I am not at, does not have such rule. Apparently, the owners are really generous (I think the idea is that, by providing the space, it would benefit the whole dancing community).

Almost every studio I've ever attended encouraged you to get there early and stay late,if you wanted to. The exception was the studio that was owned by a single independent teacher.  Because he was the only teacher, his students developed the expectation of having the floor all to themselves, so overlap was not encouraged.

I know of people here who pay for practice time, but that's a time that's completely separate from a lesson.  Practicing for 15 or 20 minutes before or after a lesson is generally not a problem.

Our studios survive in part on practise rental time.  The typical rate ranges from $5-15/hr so its quite nominal compared to the cost of a lesson.  At one studio I know that hte teachers pay the same rate for their lesson time.

There's no reason why they have to give away practice time for free. It's very nice that many of them do. Smiley

I actually think that some post-lesson practise and some warm up time are, or at least were, the norm.   They should be even more so now that an hour is 45 minutes!  The stated reason they went to that was to give the coaches time to refresh before the next lesson - that means the student time should still remain at 60 minutes - anything else is disingenuous!

most of the time practice after a lesson especially if introducing a new thing. need to cement in the brain before leaving, if not I write it down.

I think its REALLY important - besides often the teacher is still there so if you do it wrong they give you more hints Wink

Well, if they want to be your long-term coach they should show that its not just about the $s...

Good for him!  Except perhaps for the top couple in a country it should be a buyer's market....
