Studio iCal Booking Links

Subscribe to all 3 studio Booking iCal stuctures, we suggest using the colours as below. You wont be able to book via this system, just viewing only, you'll still need to book via the booking form below. Works best with apple products, iphone & macs, but look online for adding to calendars for PC's & other smart phones & google calendar. Turn off notifications so you are not bombarded with notifcations. Please be aware this does not mean the dance centre is empty when there are no bookings. We will be phasing out the previous Practice Rate and instead put "PR" to reference any practice rate bookings.
