Drama classes - how much would you pay?

Hi everyone.
A friend and I are setting up after school / weekend drama classes.
She's the teacher - highly experienced, excellent local reputation. I'm looking after the business side.
It would be really helpful to know how much any of you currently pay / would be prepared to pay, for an hour's group lesson. Max 15 in a group, arranged by age. Focus on confidence and performance skills, leading to a production every term or so.
We are thinking of charging £5. Would you pay more? We are in the south west.
Thanks in advance

I think £5 an hour is OK.

Much more for an hour's class and I start to want some special things not available cheaply (eg swimming pool).

DD's ballet is £5 for 90 mins; DS2's gym is £3.50 for an hour (broadly comparable in terms of level of skills/equipment needed).

A friend's DD goes to drama class and it's £7/ hr - I think that's too much (which is why we don't go to that class).

Pay £100 for ten week block here in Glasgow. There are cheaper options but love the ethos of the classes, not pushy and stage schooley. Focus on each child using immagination and my girls have great fun there.

We pay £3.50 (in Sheffield) for a 1 hour weekly drama/theatre skills class which is really cheap IMO. There are up to 10 in a class, although only 6 at present as some left before the end of term.

I'd be happy to pay £5 though.

In Berkshire it's £250 - £400 a term shock though lessons are 1.5 -3 hours...
