AnnW says, "In the past few years I have taken many ballroom lessons with an assortment of teachers. I have never considered myself particularly graceful or good at dancing. With Vuk I have been able to progress rapidly and learn more than I could have thought possible. He is encouraging, when a lot of my previous teachers were not. He is knowledgable, and adapts his teaching methods to fit my learning style. He is accomplished and is a Master and Grandmaster in several styles of dance. He is sneaky and knows that the best way to make me want to learn something is to say that it is really difficult. He is fun, so I am able to relax and not be nervous as I was in the beginning. With over ten years of competitive and teaching experience you can be sure that you will be learning dance steps and styling the correct way. Vuk means Wolf in Serbian. " 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?

M J.
Phillip is a caring and excellent teacher for people of all ages and abilities. He is very knowledgeable in dance technique but is able break it down in ways that are easy to understand for people who are new to dance. His classes are challenging in the best way and I've improved in areas I didn't think I could at my age.

Vuk was my first dance instructor. I started at 60 years of age at a time that was very difficult in my life . He made things easier and taught me well. Gave me a solid foundation of ballroom dancing. Gave me the courage and strength to perform in a showcase and compete on the dancefloor. His easy manner and "you can do anything" attitude has not only made dancing a part of my life but has given me the insight to look at other thing that seemed beyond my grasp and try my hand at them. He is an amazing young man who is a great teacher and dancer.

I have trained with many dance instructors as an amateur dance student and I can without a doubt say that my dancing improved 100% while working with Alex. We worked together for several years and danced several styles including International Ballroom, American Smooth and Rhythm, Social, and numerous showcases. My dancing and performance abilities improved and this resulted in a significant increase in my competitive results and positive feedback from judges and coaches. Alex is able to break down areas of difficulty and give memorable analogies to assist with the learning process. I have been blessed to work with him!
