    Default Well, I know how much students pay...

    Regular price classes in the Twin Cities run $10 - $16 (community ed is less). Topic/Workshop prices run $17-$65 with local instructors, and sometimes much more when the instructors are not local. I have no idea what the instructors pocket from that.

    Maybe you should meet some other local teachers, and get advice from them about pricing.

    hard to say.... here I teach w/ @ $12 drop in fee.....
    just last week I was hired by an entertainment agency to do a party...
    the woman wanted... for her 50th birthday... to have a bellydance class for her & 9 friends....(how cool is that!)
    for one hour... INCLUDING an "informal" demo.., (as in SHORT performance.... but NOT all out!!!)..
    it was 45 min-1hr travel time EACH way....
    so I figured $200...
    =
    $12X10=$120....
    +
    $25 hr(travel time/getting dressed (for performance) time) X3= $75....
    when I got there... realized I could have charged even more (QUITE!!! ritzy!!!)

    PLUS it was thru agency... so how much on top of my fee did THEY charge client????
    PLEASE...... DO NOT sell yourself short.... I have never done a job where I thought.... oh... I should have charged LESS!!!!!>
    but MANY where I thought... oh... I should have charged more.... (& I am one of the most expensive in this area!!!!!!!)
    remember... people think you are worth what you charge!!!!!

    Da Sage-

    That pricing for workshops is what students pay per head?

    And to bellydancer- I worry about selling myself short, too. I also have those thoughts like 'who am I kidding? I'm not Rachel Brice'.
