Frequently Asked Questions

.  How much are private lessons?

The rate for one private 45 minute lesson is $80.  The rate for one private 1 hour lesson is $90.  Students usually purchase a dance lesson package, though, which lowers the rate significantly; the larger the package, the lower the rate.  For example, lessons cost only $62 per lesson with the Best Value or Orchid Package.  Packages and prices can be found on the dance lessons and wedding pages of our website.

2.  Do you offer any discounts?
Yes.  We believe everyone deserves the chance to dance, so we like to work with people.  You can save 20% by taking lessons during non-peak hours such as weekdays before 1:30pm or Friday afternoons before 5pm.  Or we offer a 10% discount for students, seniors, or military (for lessons anytime).  Additionally, you can do a payment plan if you need; just ask.  Finally, on a case by case basis, we may be able to offer a sliding scale.  Talk to us about your situation. 

3.  What is your specialty?  
Our specialties are Wedding Dance Choreography, Country Two-Step, East Coast and Jitterbug Swing, Waltz, Zydeco, Nightclub Two-Step, and basic social dancing. 

4.  What else do you teach?

We are trained in and can teach the following dance genres at the bronze level:  American Style Ballroom (Waltz, Foxtrot, American Tango), Country Western (Two-Step, Country Waltz, Cowboy Cha-Cha, We Danced, line dancing, Nightclub Two-Step, Zydeco), Swing (East Coast Swing, Jitterbug, West Coast Swing, Country Swing), and Latin (Salsa, Cha-Cha, Rumba, Merengue).  

5.  How many lessons does it take to learn how to dance?

It varies based on the rate at which you learn, the difficulty of the dance, and how much you practice.  We can answer this question more accurately at the end of our first lesson.

6.  What forms of payment do you accept? 

We accept cash, PayPal, Venmo, or check.  

7.  What kind of shoes should I wear?

Wear supportive shoes with a smooth sole.  Leather soles are best, but not required.  Any smooth sole, including worn out rubber, work well.  New tennis shoes, shoes with new rubber soles that grip, inflexible stilettos, and flip flops are hard to dance in.  Ideally your feet should be able to slide and spin around easily on a smooth floor.  For a great selection, visit Carmen's Dance Shoes near SDSU.  They are located in the Aragon Plaza Shopping Center, 6506 El Cajon Blvd D, San Diego, CA 92115  They can be reached at (800) 854-4318.
