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?

My daughter has been taking classes for three years and absolutely loves it. Everyone is so friendly and professional! She made a lot of progress and did really well in competitions last year! She loves the summer camp, too, and asked to add more weeks this summer. I highly recommend the place, it's the best rhythmic gymnastics school in the Boston Area.
