Ruzanna A. says, "Alessia is the greatest dance instructor, personal trainer, and influencer. I absolutely adore her because she is very dedicated to her job and to her students. She goes above and beyond to make sure her students reach their goal weather it’s becoming a dancer, losing weight, gaining confidence or just having fun at dance classes. I know Alessia for over one and a half years now. At first, I was taking private classes with her for about five months and later I started taking her group classes. She was very flexible about scheduling the privates and never cancelled a class. She is a super energetic dancer with amazing personality; she loves teaching and motivating her students to go after their dreams. " Read more

Rizza B. says, "We recently had the privilege of taking our first dance lessons as a couple with an amazing dance instructor, and we were absolutely blown away by the experience! From the moment we stepped into the studio, we were greeted promptly on time with warmth and enthusiasm, setting the tone for what turned out to be an unforgettable experience! What truly set Tibor apart was his exceptional teaching style. He broke down the dance moves into manageable steps, patiently guiding us through each one until we had mastered it, and he also had a great sense of humor! He was clear with his explanations, and his feedback helped us rapidly improve and gain confidence on the dance floor. My boyfriend and I had so much fun during our first dance class that we decided to book another class again. I would definitely recommend Tibor to our friends and family!" 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?

Osmond C.
What a great experience! Tibor and his dance partner Yani came up with such a beautiful first dance for me and my wife in just 9 sessions. If we weren’t comfortable with something, he immediately came up with something else that fit for us. Thanks for everything, Tibor!

Mariia is extremely talented and knowledgeable in different dance styles. I can’t believe I am actually learning salsa. I never thought I could until I hired Mariia. She is by far the best instructor I’ve ever had and breaks down each move for me to understand. She’s truly a rockstar!
