Mona Khan Company

Who can't help loving Bollywood music? We certainly do! We believe "Bollywood" is not just one specific style of dance, but a collage of many dance styles set to chart-topping Bollywood songs. Traditionally, Bollywood dance has been associated with the 'hip-shaking', 'light-bulb twisting' types of moves. We bring you Bollywood dance at a new level with true elements of Modern, Jazz, Hip-hop, Salsa and Lyrical dance. In addition, we incorporate the deep roots of traditional folk and classical South Asian dance forms such as Bharatnatyam, Raas/Garba, Bhangra (it's not that we use each of these styles in every single choreographed piece - that w ...

I focus on the basics of connecting to a partner, leading and following skills, and how to find the beat if music is a challenge.  I teach social dance, not competitive dance.  I offer a variety of Swing including Lindy Hop, as well as Salsa, Social Ballroom, Country Western, Cajun and Zydeco, Blues, and Club Dancing (freesyle). & ...

I am patient and teach with clarity, step by step. I instill in my students a passion for social dancing! Unlike others, I do not hold back teaching them as much as they could digest. I have developed an unique way of teaching so students will retain much more. Many students commented that they felt afer taking a ton of lessons, they forgot most of them, thus wasting their money and time. I have found a way to solve that, proven by my weekly group class of 70 some students.  Also, I do not scold them if they keep making the same mistakes. I help my students improve week after week, month after month. They easily see progress. I am also a ... View Profile

Frequently asked questions

How much do dance classes cost?

Whether you need to brush up your dance skills or start from scratch, adult dance lessons will cost you about $50 an hour and higher, depending on the skill of the instructor and type of dance classes.

The average cost of kids' dance classes is anywhere between $40 to $160 per month depending on the instructor's accreditations, the length of the class and how many classes your child takes. Keep in mind some studios also charge a registration fee.


What is a good age to start dance classes?

The best age to start dance classes is three. While most formal dance classes won't accept kids younger than 4 years old, you should be able to find a class just for toddlers that focuses on creative movement, or pre-dance, which means letting toddlers have fun moving to a beat with their friends.
