I will be officially off contract tomorrow. That means I'll be available starting in September for seminars, private lessons, consulting and I will consider contract work.
This is weird- I've never charged for teaching before. Seminars were either an honorarium, which rarely covered expenses, or just expenses and a T-shirt (though John Darby always insisted on giving me money.) Classes were a small mat fee left for the person who owned the space we were using.
There's been a lot of ethical armor in that concept- accusations of self-promotion don't fly as well when there's no money in it. No accusations of watering stuff down to keep students because I didn't want to keep students, I wanted connections with people who were willing to work to be extraordinary.
No plans to do anything any different, but I am curious how the dynamic will shift. Internally and externally. Or I could just hunt up another contract and table this for a year or so.
