Bonnie gave us a very informative introductory dance lesson. She is patient, encouraging, and very sincere about her craft. We highly recommend Bonnie for those newbies (like us) who may be apprehensive about beginning to take dance lessons.

My husband and I are not good dancers, but we wanted to give it a try with private dance lessons. Cindy Norge of Country Bootleggers Dance Studio is our instructor, and she is awesome. She is very patient in explaining and demonstrating the steps and has a way of correcting your mistakes without making you feel foolish. She has a wonderful, upbeat personality that makes the hour with her fly by. We always leave the lesson smiling and laughing and having learned something new. We highly recommend her.

We had a very restrictive schedule in coordinating times for our wedding dance lessons over 2 weekends only and Brett was super responsive and flexible. We were able to send him our song cuts ahead of time and he worked on some choreography in advance and was ready to teach at our first lesson! We really liked how Brett worked on basics, then took our abilities and vision into consideration, and then created a final product that looked classy yet intricate and interesting!

    My husband had always wanted to take ballroom dance lessons. One day while shopping in City Center, he walked into Amy’s Dance Studio and inquired about lessons. Amy discussed the health and social benefits of learning to dance and offered my husband a free lesson. My husband was thrilled and gladly accepted the offer. The hard part however, was how to convince me to take the dance lesson with him. Reluctantly, I agreed and to my amazement, we learned the basic steps to the swing in 30 minutes! The lesson was so fun and we couldn’t wait to take more lessons. There are so many things I love about Amy’s Dance Studio. To name a few, Amy is very patient and I chuckle over how she handles my husband, who is free-spirited and wants to learn everything “now”. Sometimes he gets ahead of himself and Amy has to literally pull him back in line; she does it in such a fun way. I have my problems too; sometimes I ask too many questions but Amy reassures me by saying, “too much analysis causes paralysis.” She never misses anything and sometimes my husband and I joke that she has “surround vision”. She sees everything, she is so helpful, and her love for dancing shows greatly. For Amy, it’s not just a job, it’s a true love and joy. Also, I admire that Rita, Amy’s daughter has literally followed in her mother’s footsteps. She has been dancing since the age of three and now at age sixteen, dances like a professional. Rita is very knowledgeable of so many dances and often demonstrates new dances with her mother. Another added attraction is the Friday night socials. Rita often leads the line dances during this time. Another valuable asset to Amy’s dance studio is Chelsea, who is a student at CNU. She is majoring in theatre and dance, works at the studio, and loves it. Chelsea welcomes all newcomers with exuberant joy and excitement; on Friday nights, she invites the newcomers to dance with her so they may become comfortable and more familiar with ballroom dancing. Chelsea is very dedicated and is available to assist at all times. As an added attraction, there is Matt, a student at Amy’s Studio. Matt loves to practice dancing and has progressed to advanced levels in most dances. So ladies get ready… Matt may ask you to dance! If you are new in the studio, don’t be shy because Matt will help and guide you on the dance floor during open dance. Matt is very encouraging and If you happen to step on his foot, it’s ok… I’ve done it several times. Lastly, the dance studio host parties on most holidays which are fun and enjoyable. Also, there are other informative social events such as wine tasting with different wines and cheeses from around the world. I would definitely recommend trying the group classes or private lessons. Hey, what do you have to lose except two left feet? Jackie, Hampton, VA

      Since January 2015, I have worked with Marilen as a photography apprentice through the VAPC Photography Apprenticeship Program. My goal was to take better pictures of my children, and now I am growing my own business! Marilen is extremely knowledgeable in photography as well as in the business side of photography. She is patient, professional, and very encouraging. I have learned so much in one-on-one sessions, as a second shooter, and during the classes offered by ArtInspired. If you are a novice photographer or a pro, I highly recommend the classes offered by ArtInspired. There is always something to learn!!

      I found Ihor Chernyavskyy on Thumbtack when I was searching for private dance lessons. He rents A Time to Dance Studio to teach private lessons. Ihor was professional, with a warm and fun personality. I highly recommend him for your private dance lessons. The studio was great, with a full schedule of group and private lessons, as well a social dances. I will happily continue my dance adventures with Ihor and A Time to Dance Studio.

      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.
