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

I love helping students learn to dance. Not only am I a seasoned ballroom dance competitor, but am a certified dance instructor. My lessons are 1 hour long vs. the typical 45 minutes most other students give. That is 25% more time! My lessons are always in a private studio room! In other studios, the floor is usually shared with other lessons taking place at the same time. With my lessons, we can use the music we need for your dance, and people are less self-conscious knowing no one is wathcing them learn to dance. It's very important for me that students feel comfortable and good about themselves while they learn. Dancing is a skill that ta...

We are a small school with more individualized attention. I have been teaching for 28 years in New Rochelle. I have taught in many of the afterschool programs in New Rochelle. My mother was a dance teacher and my daughter teaches with me now so it seems to be a family thing. I love working with children and I love to dance. It is very rewarding to watch the children grow and learn over the year. In teaching dance the students learn dance steps and routines. They work on balance, strength, coordination, flexibility and memory. They also work on life skills following directions, socializing with other students and respect for one another...

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?

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 loved the personal attention I got from my DPRdance Lessons. I spent time one on one with an instructor who developed our lesson plans for my personal needs! At one point I wanted to bring friends in for a group lesson, and they set the class up for me no problem!

I have worked with Christie for 2 years now. I have taken her class, I have danced in her dance pieces, I've worked for her school, and she's has great qualities in all of those roles. First of all she's a great human being, she is a very dedicated teacher, very positive, very professional, starts classes on time, gives her best, very creative on how to approach students of different ages, and makes sure the students understand the lesson. I think part of the reason why her students love her so much is because she's very positive, loving to her students, and she communicates with them, she talks to them, she hears their ideas, thoughts, she gives them space to be heard, creative and encourages them in every step of the way. As a choreographer she's very creative, very hardworking, very organized. She's respectful, appreciative and friendly to her dancers. I loved being her dancer.
