Private Lessons

Private lessons with Instructor Ray Gates are available by appointment and are subject to availability. Private lessons are usually one-to-one or small group (size negotiable however usually no more than 2-3 people) size and booked in hourly blocks up to two hours. They can be held at any private venue or public area that does need to be booked through a third party (eg: public park).

Private lessons can be held for anyone – you do not need to be a current member of Wisconsin Tai Chi Academy. Members of Wisconsin Tai Chi Academy can arrange private lessons to continue/further/refine their current learning. Non-members will generally learn the Beijing 24 Forms unless by prior agreement with the Instructor.

Private lesson rates start at $40/hr or part thereof, and are adjusted based on the number of attendees and the travel distance (first 10 miles covered in the basic fee). Fee will be determined and advised prior to scheduling a lesson. Once scheduled, the lesson will be confirmed upon the receipt of the fee – a timeframe to pay the fee and confirm the lesson will be provided upon scheduling. Private lessons can be rescheduled up to 24 hours prior to the confirmed time by contacting the Instructor. Fees are non-refundable, however can be transferred to another date/time, or used as credit towards class fees.
