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 Burbank dance instructors
Josephine W.
I was in dire need of preparing for a formal holiday social dancing event, and I had next to zero dancing experience. Tibor helped me establish a foundation for body movement that I have been struggling with for years, he broke down the concept in easy to understand steps, and our lessons were always filled with laughter. Tibor explained beyond the lesson of dance but also to music rhyme and reading of body language of dance partners. Throughout our lessons to prepare me for the big event, he has tailored the courses to my needs and was always able to explain new material in ways that are familiar and easy to digest. I highly recommend Tibor, he gave me the confidence I didn’t know I have and introduce me to a whole world of self-expression thru dancing.
