I have the ability to get people to the level they want to be at within the realm of dance based on the techniques and teaching methods I use to make people feel comfortable as well as giving them a push as well to achieve their goals. Seeing people achieve the goals they have set for themselves as well as developing a new sense of confidence in themselves is always amazing to see!

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?

I’ve been attending the group classes and receiving private lessons at Arete since December of 2016 and I’ve been very happy. The group classes have been very delightful! Those who attend are super friendly and the instructors are very welcoming and professional; they make walking through the doors and taking the classes a very pleasant and fun experience. The dancing is equally as enjoyable as the people, the instructor’s knowledge and passion for dance comes through with the techniques and patterns that are taught in class; and in short time had me dancing outside of class. On top of the group classes I take private Ballroom and Latin lessons. The lessons have been invaluable in my pursuit in becoming a better and more confident dancer. The instructors dive into the techniques and patterns learned in class along with ones they don’t go over in class. My timing, footwork, frame and even the character of my dancing has improved dramatically in the short time I’ve been taking private lessons. Oh, and as icing on the cake on Friday night’s they have a social dancing event where the first hour is spent which will add spice to the dances taught in the group classes. Overall, I would recommend Arete to anyone who wants to learn to dance socially in a fun and friendly environment and to those who want to take their dancing beyond just social.

Monika is very talented in overall teaching and coaching of students in various dance routines and moves. Initially I did not really catch onto dancing but have now taken a good interest in dances that I would not have done before. She is well versed and knows how to bring together a class, but at the same time give individual attention to each and everyone of her students. Monika knows and sees all so can’t just go through the motions. She seriously wants to make one a better dancer and makes the classes fun whether it’s group or private. Great instructor all around.
