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.

we can practice whenever we want before or after a lesson without cost. I know in Holland you have to pay t practice, not sure if it will come in here would not go down well.

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
