Thanks for your interest in private lessons at NTPA! Below you will find billing and pricing information, as well as Academy policies for private lessons.

Trial Lesson for New Students

NTPA instructors are happy to offer a free trial lesson to students interested in ongoing training that will be charged once the student commits to a consistent, scheduled time with a private instructor.


Private lessons are not eligible for member discounts.

Standard Lessons

$45 per half-hour lesson
$85 per full-hour lesson

Additional charge for original choreography: $50 for audition pieces, $100 for competition pieces

Collegiate Pursuits Lessons

$60 per half-hour lesson
$110 per full-hour lesson

Additional $100 fee for original collegiate pre-screen choreography audition pieces


Ongoing private lessons will be charged on the first of each month for that month’s lessons. Families enrolled in private lessons must keep an updated payment method on file through their ASAP account and notify NTPA of any cancellations before the first of the month by emailing if you do not wish to attend a lesson or be charged for the entire month.

Cancellation and Rescheduling

NTPA private instructors have a standard 24-hour reschedule policy. To reschedule a lesson, parents must reach out to their private instructor with at least 24-hours notice. Failure to show up to a lesson or to cancel without prior notice will result in forfeiture of that week’s lesson. NTPA instructors will work with their students to make every effort to reschedule lessons within the same month as schedules and space availability allow.

There are no refunds for missed lessons, last-minute cancellations, or dropping lessons before the end of the month.

Short-Term Lessons

If a student wishes to enroll in a limited number of lessons (4 or fewer), lesson time and schedule must be confirmed by the private instructor and the private lesson administrators. Payment for lessons must be submitted before a space can be confirmed for lessons. Students taking more than 4 concurrent lessons fall under the above policies for ongoing lessons.
