Private Lesson Details

Private lessons are booked by appointment. Your lessons will focus on your specific dance needs. Whether you are preparing for your "First Dance", going for the gold, or want to impress at the clubs, private lessons are the most effective way to improve your dancing.

Private lessons may be purchased on a lesson-per-lesson basis or in packages of five or ten. (I recommend a package of ten lessons for couples who are preparing for their first dance.)

Semi-private lessons are also available (3 or more people). Get a group of friends together and share the fun!

Wearing proper dance shoes will greatly inhance your dancing. You can find out all you need to know about shoes for your dance style in the Dancer's Guide. If you are just getting started and are not ready to purchase dance shoes just yet, shoes with leather or smooth soles will make it easier to dance. Stay away from tennis shoes, rubber soles, soles with tread, platform, and flip flop or slip on style shoes. Ladies can wear heels, but they should be be no higher than 3" and the ankle strap must keep the shoe attached to your foot as you spin. Men will do well in comfortable dress shoes with leather soles.

If you should need to cancel your lesson, at least twenty-four hour cancellation by phone is required. If you cancel less than 24 hours prior to your scheduled start time, you will be charged the standard fee for a private lesson.

Payments can be made by cash or check.


Most private lessons are booked a week or more in advance, however same day appointments are sometimes available. Scheduling is easy. Private lessons are scheduled around your availability. In order to schedule a private lesson, please call Mary at (323) 828-2420.
