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.

We worked with Lauren on some basic moves for our wedding first dance. The lesson we had with her made us much more comfortable and ready for the wedding!

My husband and I signed up with Betty for a dance lesson for our first dance at our wedding. I was very impressed with her responsiveness to my inquiry, and within 48 hours we had a scheduled date for our first lesson! Neither of us have had professional dance lessons before, so we had no idea what we were stepping into! We were pleasantly surprised when we drove up to her cozy studio, and were greeted by Betty with a warm smile and immediately felt at ease with her. It was extremely evident that Betty had listened to our first dance song prior to our session and had thought out the perfect steps for us to do, knowing we had little to no dancing experience. After the first session we walked away feeling more confident in our skills and were impressed with how much we had learned from her in just 1 hour. We ended up going back for a second session which solidified our dance and added a "finale". Our performance at our wedding felt authentic, romantic, and most importantly we had FUN up there! Thanks so much Betty, we are forever grateful and will remember our moves for future dancing and our anniversaries to come.
