Private Lessons

After many years teaching, our experience tells us that taking private lessons is the best way to learn. For some people, learning in a group is not always an option. Maybe you want to maximize the time you spend learning, keeping your own learning pace, or you want to go over something in detail, or maybe you are a bit shy about dancing in public. Then, we strongly recommend taking private lessons from the very beginning.

Since we are devoting the whole time just to you, you can be assured that you will be learning faster and easier.


Each private lesson is for one hour. The rate varies depending on how many you want to take. Also, as a way to reward your commitment, the more lessons you take the better price you receive.




* 1 Private lesson per hour per person or per couple $150  


* Package of 3 Private lessons per person or per couple $435 = $ 145 each lesson


* Package of 5 Private lessons per person or per couple $ 700 = $ 140 each lesson
