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.

Reviews for Arlington Heights dance instructors
Shristi S.
Anna choregraphed and taught us our First Dance for our wedding. Our experience was amazing from start to finish. She helped us pick our song and gave us good feedback and also listened to our concerns. Her classes were one on one and so much fun. We used our weekly dance lessons as date nights and it was honestly one of the best and most enjoyable parts of wedding planning. Both me and my husband were not dancers yet she made us feel so comfortable , confident, and made us look almost like professionals on the dance floor. We received so many compliments on our dance! I can't recommend her enough! She is an amazing teacher, she's so knowledgeable and bonus - she's hilarious and fun!
