Introduction: First I have learned to teach, I'm not just a good dancer. There are barriers to study, learning and competence and I know how to assist you through those barriers as they relate to dance. I specialize in break things down into small repetitious pieces so that you can become competent with them as quickly and easily as you are capable. My goal is to teach you toward attaining YOUR goals (and if you aren't sure what your dance goals are I can help you discover your options) for learning to dance, not morph your goals into what is better for me or someone else. Also -- IF I am not the best instructor to help you to your goals I will help you find the right instructor who will best help you. Peoples lives change when they learn to dance -- They don't get a better job, get paid more or have less stress but they find new friends and have a healthy hobby that relieves stress and enlarges their world in a social creative way. - Awkward men and women that aren't sure how to talk to the opposite sex - - People trying to meet others but avoid drinking and pick up joints - - Couples trying to find something to do to enliven their relationship - - Fiances not wanting to be goofy for their first dance - - People of every walk of life - find smiles, laughter and friends in dance

Beata was the best! She helped bring our first dance vision to life exactly how we envisioned it. She did a great job of breaking down the steps to help us learn them, and then combined them into a perfect routine. We booked 5 lessons with her which was a great value. We really enjoyed it and we’re inspired to keep up the dance practice even after the wedding. We would definitely recommend Beata for your dancing needs - she can meet you at whatever level you’re at and help you reach your goals!

We have had 2 dance lessons so far for our first dance coming up in April. Beata has been amazing!!! We feel so comfortable working with her, and theres no doubt in our minds that she knows exactly what she's doing and talking about. We have walked away from each lesson so excited and ready for the next weeks! I would recommend Beata to anyone looking for dance lessons- and actually already have!! Thank you Beata!

Details: My group of 3-4 people • First dance • Parent dance (i.e., father/daughter) • What my teacher recommends • No, I do not have choreography in mind • Beginner • At the pro’s location

We contacted Beata regarding counrty dance lessons for an individual couple. She responded promptly and we arranged an initial lesson. Her dance lesson instructions were easy to understand, follow, and replicate. She taught us some simple techniques and cues to help remember the dance step sequence. We had a lot of fun and have booked her four lessons.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    All prices are based on a 55 minute hour lesson in a studio where I am scheduled. First 2 Private Lessons (discounted 20%) $65 for an hour Regular Private Lesson Rate $80 for an hour Wedding Private Lesson Rate $65 for an hour Regular 10 Private Lesson Block $700 Regular 5 Private Lesson Block $375 Average for Private Lesson at your Location $120 - 140 Group Lesson already Scheduled Average $10 per person per hour Group Lesson set up for your group vary from $100 - $300

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I am available by phone to discuss goals before starting or I offer a free meet of about 20 minutes at a studio scheduled around my other lessons if needed to discuss goals and options. Then I offer a 20% discount on the first 2 lessons so that I can get an idea of your goals, how best to move toward them, your retention and challenges. After the first 2 lessons we decide,together, how best to proceed toward your goals. Sometimes it includes going out to social venues to get you comfortable with "real" social settings, or seeing the different environments and settings to help decide what direction to head with the dancing. Every student is different -- their goals, plans, desires related to dance are important and widely varied so every "process" is a bit different. But I do offer discounts on small blocks of lessons 10 or 5 when students know they need some consistent progress. Also Pay-as-you-go is fine. I have some students for 2 lessons and some students for years and everything in between.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I worked for a popular franchised dance studio for about 5 years when I started in 1980. Since then I have studied many styles and techniques with many champion and notable instructors. 3 years in the 90s when the Feather Awards (dance related Oscars) were active i was one of 3 nominees for Top Female Swing Instructor (at that time that was the dance circuit on which I was competing and teaching nationally).
