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.
