Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do you wear to swing dance lessons?

Swing dance is an increasingly popular style of ballroom dance with a dress code that reflects its roots in the 1920s-1940s jazz era. Although many studios don’t require historically accurate costumes for their private dance lessons, many dancers want to dress the part. You can wear clothes that are comfortable to move — and sweat — in, such as T-shirts and loose skirts or khakis. Or for an appropriately vintage look, women often wear shirt dresses with a knee-length A-line or circle skirt that allows for plenty of swishy movement. Men usually opt for a button-down shirt and trousers. The most important part of a swing dance outfit is the shoes. Both men and women can opt for simple sneakers, like Keds, or leather dance shoes, such as saddle shoes. Until you have several dance lessons under your belt, stay away from heels.

How much do dance lessons cost?

Adults who want to learn to dance, whether to prepare for a wedding or to meet new people, often enjoy taking dance lessons from an experienced dance instructor. Instructors may offer classes one-on-one to individual students or couples, or to small groups. The national average cost for a dance instructor ranges from $30 to $50. Some studios offer a discounted introductory lessons or group lessons, as well as package deals that are more affordable than paying for individual lessons. Some dance instructors will travel to the student’s home, which usually costs more, while others hold small-group sessions in their studios. If you choose a small-group class, expect to pay less than for individual dance lessons.

Reviews for Mesa dance instructors

Mark has been absolutely wonderful since day one. Not only is he an amazingly well-rounded and skilled dancer in various styles of dance but he is also extremely knowledgeable in how to teach it to others. We hired him when we decided we wanted to learn a dance, master the style, and then choreograph something for our wedding day. We love how he structured the lessons so that we really maximized our time and money. Unlike many dance instructors out there, Mark actually listened to us when we said we only want to learn two styles and master it. In each lesson he would teach us a handful of moves for us to practice as homework until the next time we met. By doing this, we maximized the time we were paying for to actually learning new things. It was perfect and in the end, Mark choreographed us a dance that blew all our guests minds! Some even told us they got teary eyed to see how amazing the dance was. They were in awe and asking where we learned to dance like that. The entire learning process was a blast at a super affordable price! Mark is so gentle, patient, and professional. We recommend no one other than him to learn how to dance for an event or even social dancing. He knows his stuff! And we guarantee a 100% success rate! Love you Mark! Thank you so much!! We’ll definitely be spreading your name and good reputation. And we'll see you soon for more dancing lessons now geared towards social dancing!! Love, Mr. & Mrs. Robert and Stephanie Tejada 10-21-17

We have been receiving Latin instruction from both Leela and Daniele and consider them both to be excellent instructors. As intermediate dancers who have been enjoying dance for the last 25 years, we have taken lessons from many instructors. Now moving to Arizona and finding these superior instructors we are very happy. They are highly skilled and very personable. They can communicate and demonstrate dance instruction very well.

I interviewed a few dance instructors and Bridget stood out head and shoulders above the rest, obviously the right choice. On my first day of lessons she came up up a plan that she thought would work for me and she was exactly right, it worked perfectly! I would recommend CaZo to anyone in a heartbeat!
