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 had 4 private dance lessons with Nicole for our 1st dance at our wedding. I was doubtful that we (2 people with no dance background at all) could get to any sort of readiness level within 4 lessons, but Nicole designed the perfect dance for us to be comfortable performing in front of all of our wedding guests! We are so pleased with her instruction and positive attitude, highly recommend to anyone looking for dance lessons!

Nicole is a wonderful person and we really enjoyed taking lessons from her for our first dance and family dances for our wedding. She was a great instructor and very patient with us as we learned. We will definitely use Nicole's services for any dance lessons in the future!

Brette is an excellent dance teacher. We took lessons for our wedding and she accommodated us very last minute, which we greatly appreciate. She was able to put something together for us in one week and it was absolutely elegant. We had so much fun with her that we will be scheduling lessons in the future!

Brette did the routine for our first dance and it was AMAZING!! Although my husband totally hated the idea of doing a choreographed first dance, Brette eased that fear and gave him lots of encouragements to continue on. In the end, we did it and our guests loved it... we loved it! She will work with you in every aspect - if you don't like a move, she'll change it on the spot to something you'll like. She'll go at your pace and work with you on those few steps you struggle with until you get it. I definitely recommend her to anyone wanting a fun private dancing lesson.

Roxanne is the best teacher! She taught our Marriage Ministry couples two ballroom dances for our date night function. Our group loved her! We had such a good time, they are already asking when can we do it again. Not only is she knowledgeable, but has a great personality, patience and tailored the lessons to our varying levels. She walked amongst our group providing instruction to ensure we were all “getting it” and managed our time together well teaching at just the right pace. Not too fast, not to slow. She is fun and professional. Right from our initial communication, Roxanne was always quick to respond and answer all questions. Really enjoyed working with her and would absolutely hire her again. Thanks Roxanne for a wonderful time!
