Dwight is a very, very experienced dancer and instructor, who gets you results and improvement in a short time (there are teachers who are great dancers but are not great at translating the information to every kind of student). He is able to masterfully help every level of student, from beginner to the most very advanced dancers. He has the ability to quickly tap into your unique goals, addressing what your personal strengths and obstacles might be, including your learning style, your body’s anatomy, and your mind, He identifies your strengths which he uses to help you dance better and suggests accommodations in how to deal with and overcome your obstacles. I have been a student of Dwight’s for almost 2 years, he has a profound knowledge base in so many areas; anatomy, personal training and the human element, making you feel confident when you might not. He is a wonderful teacher for men, women, couples, being able to relate to the everyday dancer as well as the dancer who might have more advanced dance goals. He has helped both my husband and I dance together socially. He is a very masculine dancer who can relate to teaching dance to men. Dwight is never condescending, always respectful, encouraging where needed, and complimentary as you succeed. He sees the potential in his students and makes it his goal to help them achieve that potential. This is true even if your only goal is to dance socially or with your special someone. Most of all he is pleasant and a true professional.See more

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.
