"I've purchased group and private lessons in Salsa and Bachata from her and she is so professional, personable, knowledgeable and patient. She takes the time to understand you and cater to your learning style and needs. As a follower, she strives to eliminate our need to anticipate the lead's next move, which is an absolute essential in these types of dances. I was so guilty of this sin when I first came to her, but she broke me of that habit and I've become much more relaxed and spontaneous, and thereby, that much of a better dancer! And for that, I owe it all to her! She also pushes you out of your comfort zone (very gently and steady, of course) to get you to the next level! And instead of blindly copying someone else's moves, she encourages and helps you to develop your own unique style so that you get your chance to shine on the dance floor and leave an impression on other dancers, so that they may remember you and come back for seconds! You will NOT just be another "good" dancer in the club. You will become that amazing SOMEONE in the club. She is such a caring and humble soul. She really invests in you and your evolution as a dancer. She takes the time to listen to you and help set goals for you so that you can meet it, and actually improve! On top of that, she teaches dance because she loves it, and wants to share this passion with you. She doesn't do it for the money! She accidentally overcharged me once and later texted me to give me a refund/credit...when she could've just kept quiet. You don't meet that many honest people nowadays. And when she went on maternity leave, she encouraged me to continue dancing and seek out OTHER instructors. Most others wouldn't even dare suggest looking at anyone else for fear of losing students (and thereby, income)! You can't really ask for a better instructor who has your best interest at heart. And to top it off, she's a badass dancer with a lot sass when she hits the floor! I know she encourages me to find my own style, but if I ever want to copy and emulate anyone's style, it would be her's because she just owns it without being pretentious!"

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.
