Sunglin W. says, "I had started dancing International Latin and American Smooth with my college ballroom team recently and was looking to improve my skills. I had only been dancing for a few months at that point and went into my first few lessons eyes wide open. It quickly became apparent they not only talked the talk, but danced the dance. They find all sorts of ways to make it so that you quickly understand how to dance better. Practice is of course key to improvement. They give you excellent drills that you can do easily between lessons. They also bring in top level coaches from other places to supplement their teaching. Since they are still competing, they are continually honing their craft. Within a short period of one year, I've received praise for how much I have improved from multiple instructors and coaches. Whether you're looking to get better at dancing what you already know, learning new figures or choreography, or just want to learn a new dance, you will have a fun time discovering that your body has more potential for dance than you might think. Since they rent space from multiple studios in town, they will be able to accommodate any preferred schedule or location. I highly recommend them as your new dance instructors." Read more

Your Dance Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much are dance classes?

Kids group dance lessons cost $60 to $200 per month, or $40 per week on average. Private dance lessons for adults cost $50 to $85 per hour, depending on the location, dance type, number of lessons, and session length.

Wedding dance lessons cost $50 to $150 per hour or $500 to $2,500 for a package of 10 to 20 classes.

What should I wear to a dance class?

Most dance classes are casual and focus more on comfort and form than style. What you wear to a dance class depends on the dance type:

  • Ballet and jazz require form-fitting clothes so your form and posture is visible.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothes and shoes to contemporary or street classes.
  • Wear fitness or leisure clothes and tap shoes to tap dance lessons.
  • Wear casual clothes, smooth-soled shoes, or dresses to ballroom, tango, or salsa classes.

Are private dance lessons worth it?

Private dance lessons are an excellent way to gain new skills in a low-stakes environment, but they may not be for everybody. Private lessons are worth it if you:

  • Value privacy
  • Want to make progress quickly
  • Feel more comfortable one-on-one instead of in groups
  • Want direct feedback on technique
  • Need a class that conforms to your schedule

How long are dance classes?

Most dance classes last 30 to 90 minutes and meet 1 to 5 times per week, depending on the dance type and age range. Dance classes for children tend to meet more often for shorter sessions because children tend to benefit more from frequent, consistent lessons. Casual adult lessons tend to meet fewer times per week but are usually longer.

How do I choose a dance teacher?

Start by browsing our dance instructors, then:

  • Get three or more free estimates to compare.
  • Examine reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Choose an experienced, reputable instructor.
  • Get a written estimate and timetable before the first lesson.
  • Follow a payment schedule instead of making a large payment up front.

After asking questions and verifying credentials, hire the best dance teacher in your area.

What questions should I ask dance instructors?

When looking for local dance companies, consider asking the following questions:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Can you give me an estimate in writing?
  • Do you teach private lessons or group lessons only?
  • What dances do you specialize in?
  • What ages are you used to teaching?
  • Are your lessons entry-level or intermediate?

Reviews for Tucson dance lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Tucson area.
Kennon B.
Learning from these instructors is a Fantastic Advantage. Lucas and Stacey are both world class champions AND excellent communicators. They create a positive environment for learning and have built a successful system for instruction that works. You won't just learn some rote pattern of steps, these classes teach you a growing vocabulary of dance phrases you can use to dance naturally and have fun right from the start. Every single class leaves me with a new thing I Can Do and practice on my own. Speaking as a first time dance student, learning from them has been one positive experience after another.
