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.

My husband and I had the best time doing our wedding dance with Kim. It was so much fun getting the fancy choreography and still being able to get it down in just three sessions. She helped us so much, and we could not be happier that we decided to do dance lessons with her!!

I have had the best experience taking private tap dance lessons from Kim! My mom and I decided to take adult lessons to fulfill a fun bucket list goal of performing a tap routine. Kim welcomed us with so much enthusiasm and was able to bring out the best in us despite having zero dance experience! Kim easily got a feel for what we were looking for and catered the classes perfectly. She was very skilled in quickly coming up with a routine for us to learn. She was very motivating and it was clear that she loves what she does. We can't imagine having any other instructor- she fit our personalities perfectly. Kim was easy to communicate with and was very flexible with finding dates/times that worked for everyone. If you are contemplating taking adult dance classes - sign up now! You won't regret it :)
