We are passionate about developing provision for professionals in the city by providing a regular, consistent pro class.  From a financial perspective our unique self-financing model is the only sustainable way of making this possible. All participants have an ownership of the programme by buying a membership, which will enable our programme to develop from strength to strength and be sustainable in the long term.

With this sustainable model we have been able to add additional benefits to members such as priority booking and discounts for specific events and workshops. In the long run we hope to be able to add to these benefits.

Brum Pro Class is for any professional artists or second/third-year vocational dance students who would like to continue development and push themselves in a challenging, high-quality professional class.

They will take place in DanceXchange’s Studios on Thursdays and at ACE Dance & Music on Tuesdays

Masks: We encourage all our visitors and customers to wear masks or facial coverings when entering the building, using the main staircase or lift to access Level 5 Reception, unless medically exempt. You need not wear a mask once you are inside the studios.

Reception: Check in at reception and sanitise your hands before entering the studio where you can remove your mask if you would like to.We recommend you come to the studios changed and ready to go, however, our changing/shower facilities are open.

Please ensure you are on time, if you are more than 15 minutes late to class you won’t be able to access the studio.

Tickets: Can be booked online, booking closes 10 minutes before a class begins. They can also be purchased via card payment at reception, subject to availability.

Once purchased, tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded unless the class is cancelled. 

When you buy online you will need to set up your account via our booking system. To book classes online please click here or click the shopping cart icon in the header of the website to access the account registration process and follow the simple set-up instructions.

Yes, although for many this is unlikely to be the most cost-effective way to book.  PAYG cost £8 per class and can be purchased in advance directly from here or via card payment at reception 10 minutes before the start of a class.

Once purchased, tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded unless the class is cancelled.

 

Membership can all be set up online here

Membership commences on the “Start Date” shown on the membership acceptance email – which is sent automatically when a member pays the fee.

A member has a ‘cooling off’ right to cancel this agreement within 14 days of the signed “Start Date” by sending or taking a written notice of cancellation to Brum Pro Class.  A refund will be arranged with the deduction of a £10 administration fee and the cost of any classes attended at the rate of £10 per class.

A member can at any time after one months of their Membership Start Date, cancel their membership by providing Brum Pro Class a full calendar month written notice. This means a customer commits at least two months of classes at a minimum if they buy a monthly membership.

This fixed membership period is needed to ensure a stable income base for Brum Pro Class, and to enable the programme of professional classes to be confirmed in advance.

If there is no money in your account when the direct debit is requested the payment will fail and our finance department will receive an automatic notice.  We will then get in touch with you to sort out payment.  The bank will resubmit a payment request the following month as usual.

If a Direct Debit fails or a member has cancelled their membership without prior agreement, membership will be suspended until payment is received. If any member falls behind in payment for more than one calendar month, membership will be cancelled.

Please contact Brum Pro Class or Birmingham Dance Network in the first instance and we will pass on information to the steering group for consideration.
