studio coordination letter
Thank you for considering Pole Art Athletics as your Dance Science Pole Teacher Training Resource. We hope to bring the accredited POLE-ATES Foundation course to your studio, with the opportunity for further learning with the POLE BARRE & POLE MOBILITY Curriculum. Pole Art Athletics is marketing to Studios & Groups rather than individual participants for several reasons:
Studio & Group rates make the course cost effective for Pole Art Athletics & affordable for you & your staff.
If entire studios show that they have high standards for all their instructors to be educated & qualified it makes a statement to the pole & aerial community on the importance of safety & training.
There is dense anatomical information and numerous exercises in the curriculum that taking the class as a group allows a team to review & digest the material together.
Flat Rate Course Fee for your entire staff (up to 16 participants, max of 2 people per pole pending space allowance):
2018 Course Fee: $1200USD ($1500AUD)
Manual: $15 per participant
Instructor Travel Expense to/from your Studio (mileage/airfare/transportation): cost can be minimized if you provide local transportation (contact us for details).
Accommodation (2 nights): cost can be minimized if you provide accommodation as a host (contact for details).
Deposit: $600 to reserve your course dates. (Via PayPal Invoice)
Collaborate with another local studio to share the cost of the studio exclusive.
Promote: Promote the course at your studio to subtract from your studio exclusive cost.
Cost $275 per Individual
2 instructors from a studio: $225 each
3 instructors from a studio: $175 each
4 instructors from a studio: $125 each
+$15 per person for Training Manual
Example: 8 of your own instructors plan to take the course. 1 individual signs up for the course ($275). A group of 2 from a different studio sign up for the course ($225 x 2 = $450). Studio Course Fee: $1200 - ($450 - $275) = $475 your new reduced Course Fee.
Dates & Times: Each course in the Pole Art Athletics Curriculum is compiled of 2 days (16 hours) of training, ACE accredited for 16 CEUs, and recognized by the Pole Safe Federation. The course can be run on weekdays or weekends; based on your studio space availability. Class is typically 8am-5pm; time changes can be coordinated in advance per studio scheduling needs, and lectures can be completed out of the pole space to accommodate any of your studios regularly scheduled pole classes.
Booking a Course: Please talk to your staff about availability to attend a 2-day course, and provide us with preferred dates that work best for you and your team.
