50 mins: 45 mins of dance floor time, 5 mins for administrative work (scheduling future lessons, payments, for example).
Private lesson rates are the same for singles and couples.
Private lessons can be scheduled at the convenience of your and your instructor’s schedule. They cannot be scheduled during our regular group class schedule (Mon-Thurs 6pm-8:35 pm), but most weeks, Monday-Saturday starting as early as 10am (or possibly 9am) until group classes start at 6pm, and after group classes at the 8:45pm or 9:30pm hour are open for scheduling. Friday and Saturday may have more flexibility depending on the weekend.
If you are taking only private lessons, please expect to find a minimum of 2 days a week you can commit to your lessons. The more often you are in a learning environment, the quicker you will learn, just as with anything else. Your progress will reflect your efforts and investment of your time and energy.
We find that students who take lessons less than 2 days a week progress much more slowly, forgetting much of what they learned from one week to the next, spending their next lesson repeating the same information they got last time, and end up quitting pretty quickly because they feel frustrated and as if they're failing when in reality, they never really gave themselves a real opportunity to learn. Simply put, you're not getting the full benefit of your time or financial investment. As with learning any other skill, the more time you can spend in a learning environment, the quicker you will learn. Don't shoot yourself in the foot before you even start by not giving yourself the right learning environment in which to learn!
Wear clothes you feel comfortable moving in and appropriate foot attire (dance shoes, jazz sneakers, leather-soled shoes, or even socks). If and when you are ready to become a little more serious, we can order dance shoes for you in a wide array of styles. In the meantime, you want to wear something that stays on your feet (flip-flops, slip-ins, and mules not recommended)! Please no marking soles on our floor! (If you want more information about dance shoes, please take a look at our "Dance Shoes" section.)
If you would like to schedule a semi-private lesson (3 or more people), add $10 per person per lesson. (For example, if your lesson rate is $50 and you have 3 people join for a total of 5 in your group, you would add $30 for the 3 additional people to your lesson rate of $50 for a total of $80).
To schedule your private lesson(s), please call (707) 761-5214 and Angeline will be happy to assist you. If you call Mon-Thurs 6-9:15pm it is most likely your call will be unanswered because we are teaching group classes. Please call anytime before or after our group classes if you'd like to actually speak to someone.
(Please show up for your lessons!!!)
