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.

This was my first dance lesson with someone ever. It’s a nerve racking experience at first but she was great at making me feel completely comfortable and excited to learn dancing. I would highly recommend!

We aren’t even done with our lessons and we absolutely LOVE both Maurizio and Caitlin. They are so easy to get along with and extremely professional. They made this whole experience so much fun and wonderful. We hired Maurizio to help us with our first dance. The choreography is amazing. We even plan on taking normal dance lessons with them after our wedding. You cannot go wrong with these two. I would absolutely refer them to anyone looking for dance instructors. Thank you so much Maurizio and Caitlin ! 😊😊

Beatrice just delivers as promised. Very confident in her work and for good reason. My wife and I had ZERO clue about dancing. We told her what song we wanted for our wedding first dance and she just listened to it, determined the dance type, the choreography and lesson plan. We hit the dance floor after a few classes and we put on a show. Thanks for an amazing experience Beatrice :)

Beatrice was perfect. This was my wife and I first time taking dance lessons. Beatrice was fun, energetic, knowledgeable, and knew just how to make us feel comfortable. I will definitely recommend going to see her.

If you're looking for an instructor who's knowledgable and skilled in a multitude of dance styles, Beatrice is your best choice. Puts her heart and soul into teaching others, while making sure they're having fun surpassing their capabilities. She's reasonable with scheduling (I fly out for business trips frequently) and goes out of her way to make sure her students retain the lessons. Giving her 5 stars is only undermining her abilities and personality as I would rate her above it. Thumbtack says to pick 3 things I liked about Synergy, but she met all 5 of them...and then some. Keep up the excellent work and thanks for never giving up on us! I too want to see you climb as high as you can!
