Online Private Classes

The gist

  • Private online classes for special occasions and virtual parties (hens, bucks, birthdays, anniversaries)
  • Corporate team activities and staff engagement – not just another end-of-week drinks
  • Online wellness for business teams and sports clubs (boost productivity and avoid burn out)
  • 45 to 120 minute classes (customisable topics and length)
  • Live and interactive sessions with a dedicated teacher
  • Lots of hands-on “doing” classes not just more meetings or passive videos.

 

We have extensive experience organising engaging and entertaining classes in all sorts of topics. Some of our most recent clients include Moonee Valley City Council, the Melbourne Cricket Club, Hub Australia, Australian Unity, Bain & Company and more.

All our classes are LIVE and interactive and we keep numbers intimate to maintain connection and engagement between participants. With over 7 years of experience cultivating a community of passionate teachers, our classes are an experience to remember and cherish as well as a place to learn a skill.  What we are not is more pre-recordings or kit boxes with standard videos that you find on YouTube.

Our virtual online classes afford you ultimate flexibility for anyone to join from anywhere.  Perhaps your birthday or anniversary is arriving but with boarders closed, your friends are scattered across Australia and around the world.  Maybe your hens or bucks party has to be done online but you don’t want to cut out the fun!  We have so many amazing classes and experiences for you!

We have highlighted a few popular topics that adapt well to virtual classes but there are many others to choose from! Just email us with your class idea and we’ll try to make it happen.
