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.

Veronica W.
Brandi was such a great, sweet and patient instructor! We had procrastinated getting dance lessons for the first dance at our wedding and Brandi came to the rescue! We only had time for one lesson and she made the lesson so relaxed and easy to learn! Our first dance went perfectly because of Brandi!

Beata did the impossible!! She was able to teach my husband how to dance in just a few lessons a couple of weeks before our wedding...a miracle to say the least. She was fun and informative. We plan to continue lessons for entertainment and so my husband can keep up with me. We highly recommend Beata for dance lessons!

Stephany's business is SO appropriately named. You CAN dance and you won't believe how quickly she will have you dancing with confidence! My son, daughter in law and her father had virtually no dance experience and even less of a comfort level. I was looking for an instructor who could teach us enough to be comfortable dancing in front of 180 people- in 2 or 3 lessons - without investing a lot of time or money to learn a complex choreography. I contacted no less than 10 instructors. Not one other instructor understood what I wanted and told me it was not possible to learn to dance in less than 10-15-20 hours of lessons. They were dead wrong! In 15 minutes Stephany had us doing the box step and in 45 minutes we were dancing in pairs! The bride and groom took a one hour private lesson and Stephany taught them a choreographed dance that stole the show- and performed by two non- dancers!! In two group lessons and 1 private lesson- Stephany exceeded our expectations, made it so doable and so much fun! Hire Stephany if you want a great experience and end result. Thank you Stephany!!!

Beata is an excellent dance instructor. Took her time teaching me the fundamentals of the dance I was learning. Every lesson there after I felt extremely comfortable, and prepared going forward. Highly recommend Beata!

Dan is a great dance teacher! My fiancé and I used him to learn some steps for our first dance at our wedding. His lessons were incredibly helpful and he was very patient with us having no dance experience. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

Beata is AMAZING! My (now) husband and I took four dance lessons with her in the 6 weeks leading up to our wedding! She helped us choreograph a fun first dance with our first song mix. We definitely would not have had anything near to what we 'wow'ed our friends and family at our wedding with if it wasn't for Beata! 100% will recommend her to any friends who need dance lessons (and we'll probably come back and take some more ourselves just for fun!) She is super responsive, very professional, encouraging, and makes dancing fun for even those who normally have two-left feet! Thanks so much, Beata!! We are so grateful to you for helping us out with our first dance!

Beata was so great! As a couple with no experience in dancing she made it fun, interesting and very easy to pick up techniques. We are getting ready for our wedding and was nervous about the first dance, but now just after one lesson we are looking forward to it! I highly recommend working with her!!

We love Beata!! My fiance and I have zero dance experience and after just 2 lessons, we not only LOOK like we know what we're doing, but we FEEL like we know what we're doing. The ability to pay as we go, instead of having to commit to a set number of lessons, was our initial reason for going with Beata, but her skill as an instructor is the reason we'll keep going back.

Beata was perfect! We are getting ready for our daughter's wedding. My husband and I aren't dancers and we were a bit tentative about taking a lesson. She immediately put us at ease. She went slow, she was patient and encouraging. Now we both feel more confident and are ready to dance!

Beata was exactly what we were looking for! My fiancé and I are a bit rhythm-challenged but she was able to teach us moves and got us comfortable dancing after the first lesson. We had a million different ideas and she accommodated each of them so effortlessly until we figured it out. Highly recommended!!

Phil was awesome! I have zero dance experience & actually even some anxiety that is wrapped up in the thought of having to dance in any given situation. Having expressed this to Phil, I was reassured he was the right instructor to work with. He was very responsive & addressed any concerns I had ahead of time. At my first lesson, he was extremely helpful, patient, & encouraging. He worked his magic and got me moving without ever making me feel embarrassed or uncomfortable (maybe a little uncomfortable but that’s a necessity to get me past the mental barrier) Definitely recommend him! Came away feeling more hopeful & excited for future lessons. He gave me homework & followed up! Looking forward to working with him more! He knows his stuff for advanced dancers, but can also dumb it down & help someone like me with the basics. He personalized the instruction where he saw I needed some pointers for diff movements, etc - go see him!
