Kimberly K. says, "Kimberly Kennedy Flight Attendant "Before I began training with Ricky, I wasn't considered overweight. I had been working out most of my adult life, so I was fairly fit, but I couldn't say I was pleased with my body. I can't remember a time when I didn't believe I could stand to lose 5 or 10 more pounds. Most women between the age of 18-65 share that common theme. It appears to be permanently etched in our minds. I'm sure there are a lot of women who were like me, from size 2 thru 22 and beyond, who wished they could find a great pair of jeans that didn't include the proverbial "MUFFIN TOP." And though I read the same articles in over 15 different magazines in the last 15 years I still couldn't seem to "flatten my abs in two weeks", "lift my butt in 5 minutes a day" or get "lean thighs with 10 NEW moves" ( I dare you to look at a magazine cover right now). I tried diets, ab machines, and I even tried to get a "Smokin' Hot Body" in 90 days. Unfortunately none of those methods really worked or had any long term effect. I was left feeling defeated and unsatisfied. I needed something different. I remember, of all days, it was Thanksgiving, and a friend of mine who is very fit and looks like a model on a magazine cover, recommended I work out with Ricky. I was mildly skeptical. I wasn't really sure how working out with a trainer was going to be any different than everything else I tried, but since nothing else bought me the success I craved, I gave it a shot. WOW! I was blown away! Ricky was able to show me all the things I needed to do to get the lasting results of my dreams. Yes, I had to work at it but believe me, MEASURABLE CHANGE is a great motivator. It's even a lot of fun, especially when I try on jeans. No more "MUFFIN TOP"! The diet and fitness industry rakes in billions of dollars a year by playing on peoples emotions. They want you to believe that this NEW and IMPROVED way of working out is the one size fits all answer. Ricky taught me a realistic approach to health and fitness and he showed me what works. If you're a world class athlete looking for an edge, a parent, if you travel on business, if you if you are sick and tired of wasting time on the new fitness"FLAVOR OF THE MONTH" craze, or even if you have never worked out before, let Ricky show you how to reach your potential and meet your goals. He is well versed in the psychology and physiology of the body. He knows what it takes to STRENGTHEN, SHAPE and FUEL your body and he teaches you how it all works in harmony, one with the other. Of all of his many qualities Ricky has the UNPARALLELED ability to evaluate each client to specifically design a program that works to help you achieve YOUR individual goals. Ricky showed me how to incorporate fitness into my life. I no longer worry that I should lose 5 or 10 more pounds. I feel strong, confident, beautiful and pleased with my body. I think he's the BEST!" " 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?

Pari was such a great teacher for a pair of beginners. She has such a positive attitude and her encouragement made us feel more at ease even though we were pretty nervous at first. In two sessions we got enough basics for a wedding dance we're very happy with.
