Working with mixed abilities: Lessons work best with students of a similar level. If you have multiple levels in your group, however, we can split the lesson time between the different groups and make it work well for everyone
Mixing kids and adults together: Children and adults learn at a different pace and benefit from different teaching styles. Separate lessons are recommended. For family classes please contact us with the ages and levels of all members.
Lesson inclusions: All lessons include an optional door to door transport service ( advanced reservation required ). Lessons do not include lift passes or rental equipment. Academy clients can benefit from discounted rental rates with Rhythm Rentals.
