A private lesson is the most effective and efficient way to learn to dance. During group classes and workshops, I can only offer general instruction designed to address the needs of many students. In a private lesson, however, the student receives my full attention as well as highly personalized instruction. Group lessons tend to focus on more basic skills, while private lessons allow students the freedom to explore all dances, techniques, musicality, leading and following skills, choreography, and other subjects in the instructor's repertoire, and to design a specific course of learning that suits their interests and goals. In private sessions, the world stops spinning and my attention is entirely focused on you and your dancing.

To make the most of private instruction time, I highly recommend spending time before the start of your private sessions to determine your dance interests and goals. Knowing what you want allows us to more quickly match your goals to a specific teaching plan, and allows you to more immediately start on your path to reach your dancing dreams.

I offer various tuition rates for private lessons based on floor fees, traveling costs, hotel accommodations, bulk or bundle packages, professional tuition, etc. Please contact me for details.
