How many lessons do I need and how often should I take lessons?
Since everyone has different needs and expectations, the number of lessons you need depends on a few factors, such as how good you want to become, how often you take lessons and how fast you learn. If you are getting ready for a wedding or a special occasion, it is recommended to start taking lessons at least 4 months before the occasion. Learning to dance is similar to learning a new language. It takes time and a lot of practice before you can carry a full conversation confidently. Many of our students take multiple lessons per week to help them retain information and speed up the learning progress, but a minimum of one lesson per week is recommended.
How much does a private lesson cost?
The rates for our private lessons range from $65/hr to $85/hr (for 1 or 2 people) depending on the number of lessons you purchase at a time. Contact us for more information.
Can we schedule a private lesson for 3 or more people?
Yes. Private lessons for 3 or more people are also available. Please contact us for more information.
What is the cost for a group dance class?
It is $20 per person and tickets can be purchased online. 5-class pass and 10-class pass are also available.
What should I wear for my lesson?
You can wear anything you feel comfortable and confident moving in, whether it's your work clothes or t-shirt and jeans. If you are getting ready for your wedding or other occasions, it's a good idea to practice in shoes that are similar to the ones you will wear at the occasion. Dance shoes are also great for practicing. Snow boots, flip-flops or any rubber soled shoes are not recommended.
How long is a private lesson?
A regular private lesson is 60 minutes long and the last few minutes of the lesson will be used to review and schedule your next lesson.
What are your hours?
