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.
