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

Private Dance Lessons

Beata is a wonderful dance instructor! Speaking from a beginner’s perspective, she will make you feel comfortable and guide you straight into your desired dance. We booked her for our wedding dance and even after 1 lesson felt significantly more confident.

Wedding Dance Lessons

Beata was great when teaching my fiance and I some basics for our first dance even though we had only 3 weeks until the wedding and little dance experience. We felt more confident in our dancing skills after only 1 lesson, though we had 3 lessons in total! She even let us record her so we could practice at home!

Wow, Beata is incredible! My fiance and I went to her for help with our first dance and she set us up for total success! She goes above and beyond to make sure you feel prepared and comfortable. She is an excellent teacher and makes dancing feel less intimidating for beginners. Thank you so much!

Wedding Dance Lessons

My husband and I took lessons before my daughter’s wedding along with my daughter and her fiancé. It was so much fun! Beata made us feel at ease and we really enjoyed the lessons. I would recommend her very highly!

Wedding Dance Lessons

She was absolutely wonderful. Broke everything down step by step for my fiancé and I. Her professionalism and experience made this experience so comfortable and easy to understand. With her help, my fiancé and I might actually look like we know what we’re doing for our first dance. So glad I found Beata. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for instruction. The value is unmatched. Excited for our next 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%) $60 for an hour Regular Private Lesson Rate $75 for an hour Wedding Private Lesson Rate $60 for an hour Regular 10 Private Lesson Block $650 Regular 5 Private Lesson Block $350 Average for Private Lesson at your Location $100 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).
