My husband and I have studied ballroom dance with Inspiration to Movement (ITM for short) for almost a year and we wouldn't study anywhere else. First of all, the teachers. They are amazing!!! All of them are very knowledgeable and really take their time to make sure you learn both the dance steps and the mechanics of dance. They don't talk down to their students and they really make things fun. That's important to me. They did such an amazing job that six months after we started classes with ITM, they had us dancing in a competition! And we had a blast!! Price-wise, they are very reasonable. There are options depending on what you want to learn with them. They also offer group classes (fun!), social dances (also fun!!), and opportunities to study with guest instructors (I'll be taking them up on that soon). If you want to learn to dance, this is where you need to be. This studio is like my second home, and the staff and other students at ITM are like family.

Phenomenal!!! Listen it doesnt matter if you think you can dance or not. I was convinced dancing just wasnt a skill I could ever pick up. However, I am now having so much fun learning how wrong I was! If you are even remotely interested in dancing or picking up a fun new pastime, this is the place for you. My boys and I love it! This is was our first time taking dance lessons and I couldnt have dreamed of a better place to learn. Its like one big family and everyone is so welcoming. The instructors are incredibly talented and patient. Its pretty awesome and Im glad we get to be a part of it.

Brandon and Chelsea are dedicated, caring and passionate people. They work hard to ensure that their students are comfortable and ensure that they have fun while learning. I have worked with them for almost 4 years and I couldn't be happier. Before I had started taking lessons I could barely dance a step. I never thought I would ever be a decent dancer and I couldn't ask for any better instructors than these two. They have change my life for the better in ways that I can not explain.

Brianna is great! My fiance and I took a couple of introductory lessons with her and ended up purchasing an additional class package. She makes the lessons fun but is also very professional and knowledgeable.

I have been a student of Emily and Ballroom Dance Experience for nearly two years now. I started by taking group lessons through the Dublin Recreation Center, then began taking private lessons about 6 months later. Emily is an excellent instructor who brings a lot of enthusiasm and fun to her group classes as well as her private lessons. Emily's knowledge and passion for dance is passed on to each and every student she teaches. She does not only teach the steps, but also the technique and artistry of each dance. Emily adapts easily to the learning styles of her students and is flexible in her scheduling of lessons. Unlike many dance instructors/studios, Emily does not push her students to buy in to extra lessons and packages and she works hard to keep her costs affordable and reasonable in order to bring the joy of dancing to as many people as possible.

I have hired John twice now; for a backyard hoe-down and a school Square Dance. The adults and kids all had soo much fun. John did a great job teaching the dances and keeping everyone involved and moving! He did well with a large crowd of 110 adults/children. Very professional and arrived early enough to set-up. Highly Recommend!

Great people, amazing talent, and competitive prices! They will offer you whatever you want. They have competitive ballroom, social ballroom, hip hop, etc. If you only want to learn a certain style, they are ok with that. They won't force you to sign up for a specific syllabus that includes dances you have no interest in learning. I always look forward to my dance lessons at Columbus Dance Center every week!!

Every lesson with Colton makes me happy. We work on technique and combinations. We laugh alot because we're having fun. One of the things I really like is that we also work on posture and body position. We've recently worked on breathing and movement. In a lesson with Colton, you learn and understand every aspect of dancing. I'm learning so much and having a great time doing it!


I offer professional training for beginners in Tae Kwon Do, ballet, contemporary, and hip hop for all ages.


I have taught high school students in some educational capacity for the past 6 years. Whether it be self-directed, or they need some more guidance, i want to make your student feel as comfortable as possible in the learning process. I like to allow them to learn in their own way.


At Vitoria Dance Co., we are committed to teaching our students to serve the Lord with excellence by offering the best-quality classes, teaching strong technique, offering bible studies, and performing opportunities. Vitoria was nominated for the Nickelodeon Parents Pick Award for Best Dance Classes in Central Ohio. It is important that dance students not only learn dance techniques but all aspects of dance. That is why students take tests on ballet terminology, dance history, famous contemporary choreographers, etc. throughout the year. Intermediate to advanced ballet levels will be required to take an examination to progress to the next level. This examination will be held on the last Friday and Saturday of classes. Each student will be asked to demonstrate a certain movement or a series of movements that was taught to them during the year. Not only is Vitoria Dance Co. a place where students learn about dance, but it is also a place where students will learn about God.


I teach those whom I think are able to dance, find the courage to open up and see that dancing is just body movements and rhythms. Once that those two methods are down, anyone can dance.


You can customize the dance you would like to learn like contemporary, jazz, pop, Chinese dance, belly dance, Spanish dance, etc. We are good at mix culture dance choreography and we'll help you make your own style.


We teach ages 18 months. Our courses offered are Ballet 1, 2, 3 and 4 (pointe), hip-hop for youth and advance, and liturgical lessons.


Mas y Mambo is a dance company in Columbus, Ohio, focusing on salsa, rumba, cha cha, among other Latin dances. They have regular classes currently being taught and are also available for private lessons. On-going classes are a great way to get started and will teach you all the necessary elements of dancing while developing a sense of community and fun. Private lessons are perfect for those that are looking for something more custom tailored to their particular situation. They can focus on getting up to speed quickly or tightening up the little things.


Students ages 18 to 30 (or older) are welcome. I teach ballet, hip-hop, liturgical (gospel), and lyrical. I offer yearly productions.


Dance, theatre, and voice lessons are offered for any and all ranges and experience levels. I have a background in all areas.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
