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.

YOU CANT GO WRONG!! I never write reviews but if your needing basic dance moves or a elaborate choreographed dance, Deannah is your gal!! I can’t quite be more appreciative of our wedding dance lessons with Deannah!! This was one of the highlights during our wedding planning. Trust me, we went in with zero expectations, and just needing to get some rhythm down before our wedding, so we weren’t just swaying back and forth during our first dance! Me and my fiancé initially went just learn some basic dance moves, and it slowly evolved into a dance routine! It was SO fun, and we got to practice at home, and we recently did it at the wedding, and it was one of the highlights of the night! Our guests LOVED every second, it was unexpected, and initially thought “is this cheesy” it truly couldn’t have gone better, and we loved it! A whole routine may or may not be for you, but you are in AMAZING hands with Deannah! Honestly, I was worried not being a dancer at all, but she was so easy and wonderful to work with! We took 6 lessons with her, she was always punctual, and always happy and joy to work with! She made it so fun, and positive, and the hour passed so quickly. She listened, and created a unique routine just for us, and what we we’re comfortable with. She knows all styles of dance, and will help you with your song selection or suggestions if needed. As well as patience with our inexperience lol. She is also so fairly priced. If your thinking about it, it’s completely worth it, and is one of the more fun parts of wedding planning that you and your partner will probably laugh and enjoy together! It was something we looked forward to every Tuesday, and even the most inexperienced person will learn with Deannah! 10/10 recommend!

Shawntil was the BEST. As mother-of-the-groom (and groom) with no clue about dance steps, she made it happen under short time constraints. The wedding was in Colorado but I was in California. When I flew out for the couple's shower, she squeezed my son and I in for a lesson. Then when I flew in for the bridal shower, I had just injured my knee in a fall on the way to the airport, so was virtually useless, but she carefully helped me through the routine. Finally, I drove out to the wedding (which took place this past weekend, 10-22-22) and two days before the wedding my son and I went through the song and steps. Our mother-groom dance went off without a hitch at the wedding. Shawntil's teaching style is patient, infused with humor and kindness. She employs tricks to help you remember the steps, and reduce reduce nervousness like breathing, focus and taking your time. I highly recommend Shawntil for beginners. She is wonderful!
