Dance LEssons? # needed and price?

Recommended Posts

Have any of you taken dance lessons? We fell in love over a salsa and I used to live in Mexico so we can both make our way around the floor, but I highly doubt it is proper "salsa/rumba" (but we have lots of fun).

 

I was thinking (and got him to agree to lessons). We are goign to do our song as a Paso Doble most likely so I am looking for 1 choreograhped song (that won't look learned/staged) and salsa lessons so we can wing it through the night.

 

I started looking around and am told about 10 lessons needed and it runs $75-100 per less. Is that right?

 

Does anyone have any suggestions in Orange County? Thanks in advance.

we paid about $60 a lesson i think. it's been a few years. maybe it was $45 per lesson for the first set we bought.

 

we paid $20 for an intro package & $45-$60 for 3 more private lessons. we need to get back to practicing though.

Hi there- I teach dancing for a living and $75-$100 per private lesson is an average and reasonable rate for a reputable studio that will teach you what you want to achieve.

 

Most private lessons will come with a package including group classes that you can attend and maybe a few practice parties. look into that so you can take advantage of it.

 

it is a big cost, but it is something that you will have forever as a couple.

 

have fun and feel free to ask me any questions along the way!!

Thanks so much! I wasn't sure what the range was. I will add it to the ever-growing budget! I like the idea of doing private that includes some group classes...I will look for that. Thanks for the feedback!

Glad I could help - did you find anything in your area?

 

I just started teaching FI our 1st dance recently and I have to say that it has been more fun than I thought it would be!

Most studios should offer a wedding package deal. It still winds up being something like $60-$70 per lesson but, you can usually get a discount by buying a package or more than one lesson at a time. I dont really know any studios in Cali since I'm from the East Coast, sorrysad.gif

 

I agree that getting "him" to agree to dance lessons is very exciting. I've been dancing and competing for some time now and the only way I was able to get hubby to take a dance lesson with me was for the wedding dance elefant.gif Good luck and keep us posted:)
