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?

Reviews for Tacoma dance lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Tacoma area.
Wes and Natasha are amazing dance instructors. Not only do they teach the skills necessary to get out on the dance floor (and look good), they make it so much fun. For me, this fun is both creative and healing. I highly recommend Studio 6 Ballroom! Two years ago I set a goal to compete in all 9 ballroom dances - by May (5 months) Wes has me on the ballroom floor doing the Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Salsa, Americano Tango, East Coast Swing, Rumba, Bolero, Bachata. Bam! Thank you Wes! Can’t wait to see where I will be by this May! 😉

The family like atmosphere!! We immediately felt welcome and like we were an important part of the "group". My daughter took to her teacher right away...and looks forward to classes all week. We love all the options for lessons given. The teachers are clearly well trained and while professional also kind. Auburn dance academy has seriously been a game changer for our youngest daughter, she now wants more than anything to be a professional dancer when she grows up..which I think is awesome and adorable! It's everything to her now and I love that she has this phenomenal life goal at a pretty young age and that were lucky enough to have found such a wonderful place for her to get all the help,training,push, and encouragement she needs and more right here in our own town!! #adaswag
