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.

I always want to learn dance but never got a strong motivation until I met Misha and Dakota!! Their dance lessons are not only fun, but also ADDICTIVE. Now I have been learning Latin dance from them for 2 months. I have enjoyed every second of their lessons and would definitely continue dancing with them for the next year. Before, I had zero experience in dancing, but in the following months they would bring me to a dance competition. Choose Misha and Dakota!!

Dariusz is a very good instructor and professional dancer. He is good at many dance styles so you have the chance to find what style you are really into. Also, he is patient and friendly, his lessons are lots of fun but informative as well. I do think my dancing skill has improved quite a bit after four lessons. Looking forward to the next one.

Arati was an amazing dance instructor! My husband and I have 0 formal dance training and wanted to have a dance choreographed for our wedding. Arati made us feel very comfortable. She was energetic and supportive and made the dance classes fun for us. We ended up learning the dance she choreographed for us which went beautifully for the wedding. It was the highlight of our night and definitely surprised our family and friends who had no clue we had taken dance lessons and still a month later talk about how great the dance was. Thank you Arati! We would recommend you to anyone looking for dance classes for their special day!

My husband and I had a lesson with Irina and I can't say enough good things about her. She's professional, patient and knowledgeable about many types of dances. We learned so much within one hour and she's able to make my husband learn the steps quickly. I highly recommend Irina!

Prithi was phenomenal. My husband and I learned two dances (one modern and one Bollywood) over ten lessons and had a blast. We also kept it a surprise and blew everyone away at our wedding. Prithi made sure we learned the steps, had fun, grace and perfected our moves before our big day. HIGHLY recommend her

My fiance and I came in for beginner dance classes with Priti for our wedding ceremony. We both enjoy music but had zero formal dancing experience, so this was naturally a bit out there for us. Right off the bat, Priti was really great at understanding our vision and what we we're looking for in our first dance. She was able to teach us basics around ramba, salsa, and swing, which we're all incorporated into our dance routine. As beginners, learning the basics prior to learning different routine executions made putting everything together much easier in the grand scheme of things. Each lesson, she worked with us on improvements and made sure to adjust the dance accordingly based on our feedback/hesitations across particular areas. Overall, it was a very calming experience that left us very well prepared for our wedding. We are very happy with the service we received from Priti and received amazing feedback from our friends and family on our performance. We would 100% recommend her for anyone looking to work with someone reassuring, patient, and very knowledgeable in her craft. Thanks Priti!!

My husband and I had a fantastic experience working with Priti for our April 2018 wedding. We are not natural dancers (although my husband begs to differ), but Priti worked with us to choreograph the first dance routine that we were excited to perform. We left our final rehearsal feeling confident in our progress and ready to “WOW!” our guests with a romantic and elegant performance. Priti was fun, upbeat, and really knows her stuff. She was patient with our learning level and took the time to observe and teach us every step and also to the indicate where we were most comfortable and relaxed. Being sultry is not my forte, however she was very encouraging in helping me to come out of my shell. Not only did she teach us these cool dance steps; she also catered each routine to our personalities, which added a personal touch to our piece. Another benefit to working with Priti was she had us record ourselves dancing before the end of each lesson, so we had a video to review when we practiced at home. It really helped to learn the steps that way and improve where needed. We would highly recommend anyone who is willing take a chance on the dance floor or get out of their shell; whether it’s to wow a crowd or just for themselves. Thank you Priti for giving us this experience and being a part of special day!
