What’s The Best Placement For Your First Dance Lesson? A blog describing the different options an individual can choose from with regards to dance lessons along with the positives and negatives for each.

Welcome to our first blog post! As we are just getting started, we thought it would be fitting for our first blog post to describe some of the different options an individual can choose from with regards to dance lessons along with the positives and negatives for each.

If you have been thinking about starting dance lessons, congratulations! You are right on schedule! Many people wait until they have a wedding date in mind before they start their first dance lesson. This is fine if you choose one of the last minute options available out there but there are a lot of other factors involved when choosing where you should begin your dance journey.

If you are reading this post, chances are you have already tried searching online for local studios in your area. This is a great place to start and will give you your first impression of each studio. On their website, look at what styles of classes they offer and compare that to the style(s) you want to learn. If your favourite studio doesn’t offer your preferred style(s), consider trying another one!

If you have never taken dance lessons before, you may be wondering what the best placement for your first dance lesson is. While each type of class offers something different, there is no one right answer for everyone.

The best way to determine what type of class might be best for you is to consider your skill level (beginner, intermediate, advanced), dancing goals, and what you want to get from your dance experience.

If you are brand new to dancing, it can be intimidating to walk into an advanced class full of experienced dancers who have been taking classes for years. You will likely feel overwhelmed and possibly even embarrassed if you cannot keep up with the rest of the group.

Unfortunately, most beginners are unaware that their performance in this type of class has very little to do with them as a dancer. It has everything to do with the skill level of the other dancers in the room.

Students often make the mistake of thinking they are not good enough to take dance lessons when they are only at a beginner level. The truth is that being a beginner means they need dance lessons more than anyone else!

The first dance lesson is a big step. The majority of people don’t know what to expect from their first dance lesson. There are many different options that your dance instructor can offer you in order to meet your first lesson needs. The most common options are group classes, private classes and parties.

Group Classes – Group classes are probably the best option for the individual who has never taken a dance lesson before. A group class will allow you to get familiar with the feel of being on the dance floor with other dancers, learning how to move with the music and to start building up your confidence as a dancer.

The only downside is that you will not receive as much individual attention as you would in a private lesson but it is still an excellent way to get started.

Private Lessons – Private lessons are probably not the best option for someone who has never taken a dance lesson before. They do have their benefits but they also have their drawbacks. The main benefit of taking a private lesson instead of a group class is that your teacher will be able to focus on you 100% of the time during your lesson and work on whatever it is that you need help with at your own pace.

On the negative side, if you are a beginner, private lessons can be quite

The best place to take your first dance lesson is in a private dance studio.

Private dance studios are better for beginners for a number of reasons:

• They are most conducive to learning, being distraction free from outside influences.

• They have more experienced instructors that specialize in beginner level students.

• Their pricing structure offers the greatest value for money.

• They provide the best opportunity to get to know your teacher, and give you a chance to decide if you like them before committing to any further lessons.

Whether you’re a beginner or returning to dancing, your first dance studio choice can make or break your experience. In fact, the first studio you choose can either help or hurt your development as a dancer.

If you are familiar with my work, then you know that I am an advocate of in-person dance lessons over online and distance learning. I feel that in-person training is much more beneficial because it allows for instant feedback, correction, and personal attention from your instructor.

However, not all studios are created equally, so where do you start? Should you choose a large franchise or a small independent studio? What types of lessons should you take? What should be the focus of your first dance class?

These are all questions that we will explore below. Let’s dig into what types of dance studios are out there and what makes them unique.

When you first start dance lessons, there are a lot of things to figure out. If you are just starting out, there are a few different ways to go about it. I will outline the options available to you and then give some advice on what is most effective if you are serious about learning how to dance.

1. Group lessons:


– Cheap – often $10 or less per person for a 1 hour lesson.

– Easy to find – any dance studio should offer beginner group lessons in multiple styles.

– Good for practicing with others – an important skill for social dancing.


– Less attention on your individual needs. If you learn differently than other people or have specific goals, this might not be the best option for you.

– Difficult to get one on one help while dancing with the teacher because they have too many people at once. You might get lost or confused during parts of the instruction and it can be hard to ask questions while they are moving around the room teaching everyone else. A good teacher will make sure everyone gets enough attention but it might not be as much as you want/need.

2. Private Lessons:


– The teacher will focus completely on

There are a lot of factors to take into consideration when choosing your first dance studio. While location, cost and style may be the most important, there are a few other things to keep in mind as well.

The first thing you should do is find a few studios that offer the type of classes you’re looking for and read their reviews! You can usually find them on Google, Yelp or Facebook. Or if you’re really eager, pick up the phone and give them all a call. While this might seem like a waste of time – it’s not. By calling each studio you’ll be able to get a feel for what the instructors’ personalities are like, how much experience they have teaching new dancers, what the facilities look like in person (you can always ask for photos), and so on…
