What happens on a private lesson?


Group Classes

It's a great way to learn, but curently not something I offer on a regular basis.  Check with Ballroom Bliss on the westside or Jacksonville Dance Center on the southside for regular group classes. 

If you have a group of friends, neighbors, workers, etc who'd like to learn together, I'd be happy to help put together and teach your very own group class (see "Private Groups", just below).

How do group instruction and private instruction compare?


Private Groups

$75 per class..........up to 7 participants

$10 per person.......8+ participants

A private group is a class that you put together, consisting of your friends, family, or acquaintances.  Such a class would be closed to outside enrollments and would focus on any dance your group wants to learn.  Typically, your group comes to one of our studio locations.  A $25 travel fee applies if we come to your location.  A private group can be a one-time event, or a series of lessons over any number of days / weeks you request.

Please contact us for more information about forming your own private group class.


Party / Event Entertainment

Monday-Thursday................$75 per hour, per instructor

Friday-Sunday............$125 per hour, per instructor

Travel fee.........................$25 per event

Adding a little dance instruction to your party, wedding, or corporate event is a great way to entertain your guests.  You can request specific dances, or leave it up to me to provide the instruction and music.

After the instruction time ends, I can gracefully disappear, or keep the fun going with party music and a dance atmosphere, as you and your budget see fit.


Wedding Preparation

Private instruction for any one couple -

or a small group of up to 7 participants.........$75 per hour

Groups of 8 or more......................................$10 per participant


Holy smokes, there's a lot of dancing at a wedding reception!  The bride and groom do an honor dance.  There's often a mother/son and father/daughter dance.  Sometimes the whole wedding party is expected to join the dance.  And there's nearly always some sort of dance floor and a band or DJ to entertain the guests.  So getting a little dance instruction in advance is a pretty good idea, for guests as well as members of the wedding party.  Just try not to wait too long - the further out from the event, the more successful you're likely to be.
