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.

I had a private dance lesson with Ally and she is an amazing dancer and teacher. If you're looking for someone to give you more confidence in your dance ability, beginner or advanced, I recommend her!

I take private lessons from Darren. I started pretty much from zero this year in hip hop dance and Darren has been an amazing and patient teacher. I feel like I’m improving every lesson and every practice. He is excellent and explaining and demonstrating things in different ways so it sticks. He also builds good fundamentals so you have a solid base for learning any style of hip hop dance. I highly recommend his lessons for any experience level!

Tibor has been an absolute pleasure to work with! He is always professional and his teaching technique is impeccable—he understands how people learn and always strikes a balance in each lesson between mastering skills from a previous lesson and challenging us with something new and more difficult. We took private dance lessons before and one of big differences from our previous instructor is that he is so much more efficient with the time. We get so much more out of each lesson than we did before. Couldn’t recommend him more highly!

Mariia is an awesome dance instructor and choreographer. My wife and I have taken private ballroom dance lessons for 5+ years while we were living in the SF/Bay Area. Mariia is passionate about her work and is great instructor...patient, communicative, and can diagnose problems with a dancers technique very quickly. She is also very responsive and delivers exactly what she commits to. We liked her so much that we already scheduled a follow up session with her. I recommend her extremely highly!

I have done a lot of dance classes, and private lessons. Ballet, Modern, Jazz and a little break dancing. I wanted to do Hip-Hop. I was matched up with Yolanda. I couldn't not have found a better teacher. She is energetic, enthusiastic, encouraging ( sorry for the alliteration ) and knowledgeable. I may have done other dance work, but I had to rethink, find new ways of moving that were unfamiliar. In a very short time, after some hilarious struggles. I'm getting it. I wouldn't audition for SYTYCD, but I think now I can lay down some moves in a club. More to come for me, sticking with my girl, Yolanda!
