Private Dance Lessons

  • In private dance lessons, you can accelerate your learning more than twice as fast as in group dance classes
  • With our deeply discounted rates for multiple lessons plus our 20 years experience, we believe we are the best deal in town. We offer the best multiple lesson rates in the Greater Boston area.
  • Our private dance lessons are one full hour sessions, not 45 or 50 minutes as in many other studios.
  • Unlike many other studios, you will be in a genuinely private setting with only you and your instructor and your music, not a large room with other private lessons happening in the same room at the same time.
  • You will focus only on the dances you want to learn; (hip hop is not available at this time.)
  • Nightclub dancing (freestyle) instruction is available for folks who feel awkward dancing in club and party settings; (see description by clicking link and scrolling down.)

Nightclub Freestyle Dancing

If you feel awkward when faced with a dance opportunity in a club, party, or social event, you can find relief in just one private lesson in club dancing. This is the informal, popular dance where you're not touching your partner, just boogieing freely-- or not so freely, if you're currently feeling like a dork! You'll learn the simplest basics of shifting weight and what you can do with your feet and arms; after a one-hour lesson, you'll have the skills to finally break the ice and get out there and party. You won't be memorizing any patterns; you'll be learning some simple, natural movements where you can blend in with the dancing crowd, feel relaxed, and have fun. We offer Nightclub Freestyle Dancing only as a one-hour private lesson. That's all you'll need!

Are you pretty much ok with the basics and just really want to impress on the dance floor? Join our 6 week Hip Hop or Pop Culture dance class and pull out some hot moves from the choreography you'll learn.

Private Lessons For Your Wedding First Dance

How many lessons will you need? It widely varies as to the number of lessons couples decide they need in order to feel comfortable and look good for their first dance. If the dance is a very slow romantic tune and that is the only song or type of music you need to learn to dance to, three hours of lessons is the average choice,
five hours would have you highly polished, and one or two hours may potentially be enough. It depends on how polished you want to be, and how relaxed and/or experienced you and your partner already are when dancing together at this point in time.

What style of dance should you learn? Very slow-tempo songs (i.e. "At Last" by Etta James) will require you to learn a mellow slow dancing technique, sometimes called "schmooze foxtrot". If your song is not that slow, perhaps more mid-tempo as in "It Had to Be You" or one of the Sinatra-style tunes, you may want to learn foxtrot, a classic ballroom dance which is a bit more structured than slow dance/schmooze foxtrot. (We don't recommend choreographing a "routine"; that is tremendously time-consuming and usually ends up looking stiff and unnatural. We won't allow you to end up dancing robotically while moving your lips, resembling a deer in the headlights, as your guests look on with morbid fascination. Awkward!)

Can you dance to something really different? Absolutely! We guarantee you: if it has a beat, we can teach you to dance to it. Your first dance is a unique expression of you, and you need not feel obligated to fit any mold.

 

Student Testimonial

"We had the most wonderful time; never having taken partner dance lessons you immediately made us feel comfortable and excited. We had such a great time learning swing, and as two teachers we couldn’t stop raving about what a great teacher you are and how wonderful your style was. "
Sharon L., Braintree, MA

I dreaded having to dance at my wedding; now I'm actually excited about it. Unbelievable. Jason K., Boston, MA
