Private Lessons

Private Lessons

Private lessons are the fastest and most efficient way to learn to dance. Every person comes to dance with a different set of strengths and weaknesses, and in a one-on-one setting the instructor is able to tailor their teaching to your unique skill set. We recommend private lessons for dancers working toward competition, a showcase routine, a wedding dance, or simply wanting to improve their dance skills at a faster rate with the one-on-one attention of our instructors. You are welcome to come by yourself, or bring a partner and split the price. To schedule, please send us an email or give us a call.

Cancellation policy

If you cancel or reschedule a private lesson less than 24 hrs before your lesson time, the full amount of the lesson will still be due. If you have pre-paid with a package, the lesson amount will be ducted from your package. All cancelations or rescheduling happening with more than 24 hours before your lesson time will incur no charges. There are no refunds for pre-paid group classes, but if you have an injury that won’t allow you to participate, let us know and we will give you a credit for when you can return.
