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.

Mark makes the dance lessons fun and helps teach you in a way that's easy to remember. He is currently doing lessons for our first dance, father daughter dance and mother son dance. Highly recommend him.

Mariana is an amazing dancer and teacher and is very easy and fun to work with. My new bride and I plan to continue taking lessons into the future at Arizona Sun Dance Studio.

I had a first lesson with Leela today.I've never had any type of dance instruction before. Leela was very easy going, she explained everything we'd be doing ahead of time, answered all of my constant questions about this and that…I felt very much at ease. For my particular dance goals i'll be needing more than just a couple of lessons so I plan on working with Leela at least a couple of times a month for about a year.

Mariana is a wonderful teacher and really helped my boyfriend and I learn the basics of swing, salsa, and cha cha. I knew how to dance, and she helped me be a better dancer as well. So much fun, I highly recommending Arizona Sun Dance Studio! We will be taking more lessons for sure!

Mark was an exceptional instructor for my partner and I. He has such a passion for dance and it shows in his instruction. He was even able to provide weekly recaps of our lessons which helped a lot and was very much appreciated. We were never afraid to ask questions and felt like we were in good hands. Additionally, Mark knows so many dances that you definitely will not be lacking in dance options, and will even be able to learn 2 or 3 different styles at once. Similarly, he is able to give background on dances and explain how certain dances relate to each other. We were blessed to find Mark, and happily recommend his instruction!
