PRIVATE LESSONS
I am available for private lessons by appointment. For your convenience, I can come to you or arrange to use studio space, and you can come to me.


FAQ's

"Why take a private lesson?"
Group classes are a good start to learning dance, but to really fine-tune your technique and style, you need personal attention that only a private lesson can give you.  We can teach you exclusively thru private lessons, or we can combine your group class instruction with private lessons to follow-up on and polish what you've learned.
Plus, private lessons are GREAT FOR WEDDING COUPLES!!!


"How much does a private lesson cost?"
The base hourly rate for a private in-home lesson is $55/individuals and $65/couples There may be an additional travel fee to come to your home if you live outside of Raleigh. Lessons at a rented studio space in North Raleigh are $65/individual, $75/couple, or $85/group (10 students -- $5 extra for each additional student).

"That seems high...why so expensive?"
Actually, it is not as expensive as you think.  Consider these 3 points:

1. In a private lesson, you're paying to have the instructor ALL TO YOURSELF; thus, the fee is not shared with other students like in a group class -- and we have to make a living! :-)

2. You learn alot FASTER when you're working personally with an instructor. Fast learners are not slowed down by the group's pace, and slow learners are not neglected by the instructor's divided attention (obviously, we try to help those having difficulty, but there's only so much individual attention we can give while being fair to other paying students).

 3.  Many ballroom studios charge MUCH MORE! 
(we know...we've worked at them.)
The price of a 40-minute private lesson at some studios costs $100!!!Most (75%) of that goes to overhead (rent, advertising, fancy lighting, etc.).  Why pay so much extra when you can get the same quality instruction for so much less? (Remember...I'm the same instructor I was when I worked for the fancy studios.)  Plus, at a studio, you have to share space and music with a bunch of other lessons taking place at the same time; with me, you get a private studio space all to yourself!!!
