If you prefer to pay in person, you are welcome to email us to get you registered and bring payment (cash, cheque, or credit card) to the first class.

A session of classes costs $150. Current and upcoming session dates are:

  • winter 2018: January 10 to March 29
  • spring 2018: April 4 to June 20
  • summer 2018: July 4 to September 13
  • fall 2018: September 19 to December 5

We offer a 10% discount if you take more than one class per week, or if you bring a friend who also signs up for a class.

It is possible to join a class even after a session has started; just contact us to inquire. The best option for joining after a session has already started may by the drop-in card option; depending on how late in the session it is, we'll recommend the ideal way to proceed. Drop-in cards only get punched when you attend, so this allows you to carry over unused classes between sessions.

Have more questions? Please check our FAQ (PDF 130KB) to find answers, or contact us.

If you are new to Duniya Studio, please download and complete the student registration form (PDF 83KB or docx 25KB) and bring the signed form to your first class.

Want to try before you commit? You are welcome to try one drop-in class for $20 before committing to a full session; if you decide to join, the cost of the drop-in will be applied to payment for the session.

Drop-ins are also a great option for those who have trouble knowing if they can make it to class at the same time every week. Drop-in packages allow you to stop by our ongoing classes when it suits your schedule. A drop-in package or 3, 5 or 10 lessons is good for the whole calendar year.

Drop-ins can be purchased through our portal as well, or in person at class.

Please contact us before showing up to make sure the class you are planning to drop-in on is running on the day you choose, and remember to speak to the teacher and present your class card before the start of class.
