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.

Great experience, very personable teacher. Just as much laughs as dance during our lessons.

Mark was a great dance instructor for me and my fiancés first dance at our wedding. Neither of us had any dance experience before starting our lessons with Mark. We cut it a little close to the wedding and only had time for 6 lessons. Mark taught us a unique routine to the song I had chosen for our first dance. Best of all it was really fun! Our guests were all very impressed.

I have zero dance experience. I had some nerves before my first lesson, but that went away quick. Bridgette is a great teacher. I now feel like I can minimally pretend to know what I am doing. My gf and I are now taking couples lessons. Bridgette did a great job making me feel comfortable, even with my limited knowledge and skill in dancing.

Leela was so great! Booked this lesson as a date idea for my partner and i and it was perfect. It was a private lesson and the studio was easy to find and clean. Leela was so attentive and patient with us and we both left feeling more confident about taking dance classes together. Highly recommend!
