Spencer is a fabulous trainer. I'd initially been apprehensive about hiring a personal trainer because I had no idea what that experience would be like, but that anxiety instantly dissipates once you meet Spencer. He is extremely approachable and an all-around nice guy. As a trainer, he is high energy, encouraging, and sometimes very silly (in a way that makes training fun). "Choke out that barbell like it owes you money!" and "The motion you want is as if you're pulling out a ninja sword from its sheath!" are just two of the myriad things you might hear when you train with him. I really appreciate his flexibility, as well. As a lawyer, I have a crazy schedule, but Spencer makes time on the weekends to see me and is accommodating when I need to make last minute changes. Even during COVID times, we've been able to train outside, socially distanced, with masks and sanitizer and all that good stuff. I've had six sessions with him and already see results in terms of strength, weight loss, and confidence. This has been a fantastic personal investment for me, and I cannot recommend Spencer highly enough.See more

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.
