Self-employed, freelancer or employee in Zurich

Hi all, my gf is working as a dance teachers for 2 schools and she has a permanent contract in all them. She is EU, and all schools contribute to her AHV and pay the corresponding taxes. We are in canton Zurich.

However, in a 3rd studio where she gives classes, in the contract she is subletting the space. But she does not have her own invoice/advertisement/website, everything is being handled by the studio and she gets a percentage of the gains.

Is she considered a freelance, a self-employed or an employee for the 3rd school? How should she handle her AHV and taxes for this school?

She called SVA and they told her that as a self-employed (and that moment she did not know the freelancer status) she needs to pay a minimum of 480 chf up to a profit of 9400 chf.

But according to prevous posts she does not seem to fullfil all the self-employed requirements.
