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 contacted Ashley about dance lessons for my fiancé and I work only 5 weeks till the wedding. She got us in immediately and worked with our timeline and schedule. Although we are still taking lessons we both feel so much more comfortable already. I can’t wait to dance at our wedding. Thanks Ashley!

My husband and I were looking for the perfect dance instructor to choreograph a fun dance that showcased our personalities for the wedding and we found him! Johnny created the PERFECT dance for us. He showed us multiple dance styles until we finally decided on a traditional dance that transitioned into a swing dance. WOW, it exceeded our expectations! The guests at our wedding were absolutely blown away and it is still the talk of the town! It set the tone for the whole reception, and people did not leave the dance floor the whole night! If you are considering doing a fun dance to spice up your wedding I absolutely recommend Johnny! Taking these lessons and learning a fun first dance is hands down my favorite thing we planned for the wedding. Not to mention how much fun my husband and I had taking lessons and practicing our dance. We truly grew as a couple stepping out of our comfort zone and doing something so fun and unique! I can guarantee this will be the best investment you will make for your wedding.

We went to Cathy to get some guidance before our wedding...we’ve never danced together and had no idea where to start in preparing for our first dance! Cathy responded right away and got us in when it worked for our schedules. We got there and learned so much more than we thought we would. She taught us how to work together and I feel like we both learned lessons in more than just dance, and she went above and beyond what we would have ever expected from a dance instructor. We’re still a little nervous but are also very excited about our first dance next week! It was hard choosing who to go with for our lessons and now that we’ve done them, we couldn’t be happier with our choice!

I was excited to find Sherry because she offered exactly what I was looking for. We wanted a choreographed dance just for us and private lessons and most other dance places only had group lesson offers or were extremely pricey for private options. Sherry had it all and at a very reasonable rate. We were nervous at first because we are a same-sex couple and didn't know how the dance would look with 2 feminine women or if Sherry had ever dealt with choreographing a dance for 2 women but she did not disappoint! Sherry listened to everything we said we wanted, even my slightly unrealistic visions of Cinderella type grand ballroom dance moves :) Sherry was not only professional and displayed an obvious passion for dance but she was incredibly fun to work with. She genuinely cared about making our dance exactly what we had envisioned and wanted us to be happy with and love our dance, and we absolutely were! We not only found a dance instructor whom we certainly want to teach us more dances, but we also had the pleasure of getting to know a wonderful person and quickly adored her and are happy to call Sherry our friend.

Cathy was very patient and understanding of our situation (our wedding was only a few days away and we only had time for one short lesson). We were still able to learn quite a lot about dancing as an artform and not simply steps or choreography. My only regret is that we only had time for one lesson. We will be returning after the wedding for more lessons.

Cathy was great!! She was very friendly and made the lesson fun. I hired Cathy so me and my husband were more comfortable at our wedding. We danced the night away! Thank you Cathy!

We had such a fun time. Cathy’s studio is beautiful. Cathy is amazing at observing what your body does naturally and help create your own unique dance. You will realize you actually know more about dancing than you think you do. I felt comfortable working with her. She has tons of information and experience. I’m looking forward to our next lesson with Cathy.

Johnny was so amazing! We absolutely loved working with him! We hired Johnny to choreograph a first dance for our wedding, and to teach us some ballroom dancing. I had some previous dancing experience from childhood, but my now husband basically had two left feet. But not anymore, Johnny really knows how to loosen people up! We had 3 lessons with him, the last being our choreographed dance, and within that time we were both moving together much more gracefully! Whenever we seemed to be getting frustrated, Johnny would joke around and make us feel so much more at ease. We had to reschedule a few times with him, and he was super flexible with us and our crazy lives! My husband was so nervous at first for our wedding dance, but we practiced like crazy at home were so ready for it! I couldn’t thank Johnny enough for working with us and helping us perfect a beautiful first dance! Everyone at our reception was so amazed! We highly recommend Johnny whenever you want to learn a new set of moves! We definitely plan to go see him again!
