LATEST ANNOUNCEMENTS

FEBRUARY ANNOUNCEMENT


Urbanity Studios has reopened for in-person Group Classes! Cook county and Chicago have reached Tier 1 Mitigation Measures, which allows us to dance in the studio at 25% capacity.

Starting January 25, Urbanity has reopened it's physical doors once again for in-person class participation! Only 9 in-person spots will be reserved for both solo dancers and non-rotating couples per class, so reserve your spots today! Classes will also be available virtually via Zoom.

Registering online? Make sure to update your attendance type on your profile for your next visit! Already registered? For previously registered students, please contact us if you want to switch your attendance from virtual to in-person.


The pandemic brought a slew of challenges to us all throughout 2020. Whether it was changes in our personal or professional lives, pivoting and adapting to our new climate was necessary for survival.


To make dance more accessible for individuals under strain, we lowered our prices and adjusted our offerings to match the current circumstances; and our instructors were understanding enough to accept a cut in pay to help keep the studio afloat. Our efforts were successful in keeping us open throughout 2020, but the changes we made are not sustainable long term.


In order to recover from the massive financial strain that we suffered last year and also reinstate the original payrates for our hard-working instructors, we need to start returning to our pre-pandemic pricing. It is important to us to be upfront, fair, and affordable for our clients, which is why we’re giving advance notice and have done our best to make increases as modest as possible. We hope that you understand and that we continue to have your support throughout this transition.


Since we are not completely full-service yet, our pricing adjustments will happen in 2 phases to ensure fair pricing that falls in line with the amount of services being offered. Phase 1 will be in effect at the start of the March session. Phase 2 will not be implemented until we are able to offer all pre-pandemic services and ample notice will be given before those changes are made. Please see below for our new updated Phase 1 pricing as well as some special sales and new membership perks we hope you’ll be excited about.


Drop In Classes: $20 4-Week Classes: 1-Pack $65 | 2-Pack $120 | 3-Pack $150


SPECIAL FLASH SALE ON 10-CLASS PASS: Stock up on 10-Class Passes for 2021 at the $95.00 rate before our pass price increases to $140 starting March 1st! No limit, no minimum! Passes will not expire.


NEW FULL PASS MEMBERSHIP PERKS: For $200/month, not only will you recieve access to all classes, you'll now also receive 50% off special workshops and performance challenges taught by Urbanity staff PLUS 15% off all Urbanity Gear.


Please do not hesitate to come to us with any questions or concerns. We value each and every one of you and want you to feel comfortable with this transition. Stay warm!

"Have been taking Intermediate Kizomba with Courtney for a handful of months now! Who knew virtual dance classes could be such fun?!?! With the way Urbanity has it set up with Zoom, the teacher is able to instruct you and give you feedback live just as they would in a normal class, plus you get the entire recording to review later (which normally does not happen in a live class).

Allows me to stay safe, work on my footwork and still be in touch with my dance scene at a safe social distance"
