There is no better way to learn how to dance than with private lessons. Not only do you learn more quickly, you also learn more efficiently. While group classes are great for introduction, to learn new patterns, and to rehearse and review what you've learned in private lessons, they do not give you the benefit of having a professional dancing with you for the entire time and giving you feedback that is uniquely yours.

Rates & Specifics
All private lessons are 45 minutes long and most likely can be arranged to meet your busy schedule. We ask that you please respect your teacher's schedule and give him or her 24 hours notice if you need to cancel. All last-minute cancellations will be charged for the lesson.
If you find you can't afford private lessons, then why not get a small group of friends together to share? Cost for shared lessons with 3-6 people is only slightly higher than individual lessons. Or you can schedule a private lesson from time to time. It need not be on a regular schedule, though you will get the most benefit by working with your teacher on a regular basis.
