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.

After just one lesson, we were able to enjoy our event with some basic dance steps.

My fiance and I are taking lessons to learn a choreographed dance for our first dance at our wedding. Sherry is an amazing instructor! She is so patient and kind. I am so glad we decided to go with her!

We are enjoying our country and western dance lessons with Cathy so much! Learning things I never knew (former Texan) about country dancing. Other classmates are very nice and friendly. Cathy teaches in a very logical manner that is helping us learn and retain the instructions!

Sherry is an exceptionally skilled and patient dance instructor. After only a few lessons I feel confident enough to go to social dances. She worked closely with me to give me a good foundation, and to assuage any concerns/anxieties that I had. 10/10 would recommend!

Deanna was so great to work with. She helped choreograph our first dance and made it so much fun! My fiance and I have never had dance lessons before and she made it so easy to learn. Not only did we accomplish our main objective, we had a great time doing it.

My girlfriend and I wanted to learn how to dance and booke with Cathy not sure what to expect. When we arrived she was super friendly and sat us down and talked about our goals then got us dancing. She was amazing in guiding us and helping us learn, we had a great time and will be booking more lessons.

Diana is an amazing dance teacher!! I have a wedding coming up and my fiancé and I took 3 lessons. She helped us get the building blocks together and was very good at guiding us both on rhythm, movement, and coordination! She has such great energy and was absolutely professional! I recommend her for anyone wanting to learn how to dance!

Sherry was absolutely amazing in teaching us the Foxy and creating the choreography for our first dance. The song we chose was quite challenging, but she blew us away with her ability to create an easy, yet beautiful choreography. Our first dance was so special and we'll have a video of it to cherish for a lifetime...especially the part where I decided to dip the opposite way at the very end, but nobody even noticed (kudos to my husband for not letting me fall :)). We look forward for life to calm down a little so we can go back for more lessons and learn other dances as well. We highly recommend Sherry to anyone wanting to learn how to dance, no matter the reason or occasion!

Sherry is amazing. We reached out to her to teach us to salsa and choreograph our wedding song. She was very patient and positive through each lesson and as far as the choreography, we are SO excited and happy with the routine. It's fun!!! I highly recommend working with such a thoughtful and creative and creative dance instructor.

The dancing instructions were useful and the price was fine, but at the end of the second lesson I was treated to an unsolicited lecture regarding how the government supposedly censored Covid research. As a pharmacist, I was concerned by the lack of medical knowledge Cathy attempted to pass along, but more importantly as a paying customer I found it EXCEEDINGLY unprofessional to even broach such topics as I came there to learn to dance and not to have my judgement and professional training questioned. Knowing what I know now, I would have happily paid more money to learn from someone else who was more pleasant and knows how to separate the personal and professional settings.
