How many lessons does it take?
Now that’s an impossible question to answer, however… That depends upon a number or factors, like: the number of dances you would like to learn; if you keep a consistent schedule with your lessons; and your individual strengths and weaknesses. The quickest way is just to come in and have fun… your lessons should not be stressful, they should be fun and relaxing… that’s how you’ll get further, quicker.
What makes you think you’re so good?
Well, we don’t like to pat our own backs (okay, yes we do)… We specialize in teaching all levels from beginners up to professionals in all styles of dance, including ballroom, latin and salsa, swing, country, dancesport, and more. All Promenade teachers are professionally licensed through the National Dance Counsel of America. We know how to make your learning experience both fun and easy, while also teaching you the newest and hottest steps and techniques! Promenade trains more new students to become dancers than *ANY* other dance studio in Florida!
How much do dance lessons cost?
Your first private lesson is Only $35! After your introductory session, that can vary among the different programs. We understand that money is always an issue, and private lesson programs will cost more than group lessons, but on your introductory session, we will plan with you to find the best solution for meeting your goals. The goal of the introductory session is to find the best way we can make you the dancer you desire to become. Also, our private lesson rates are based on the teacher’s time, not the number of people, so for you couples, it’s like getting a 2-for-1 deal!
What’s the advantage of private lessons?
That depends upon your goals and your time frame. If you need wedding choreography, then private lessons with 100% attention from your teacher is the only way to go. With private lessons you will learn at your pace and get the advanced techniques sooner, since your teacher can take you from the point you are at each lesson. For competitive dancing, private lessons are the only way to go. For social dancing, private lessons will take you to your goals more quickly and with more ease and fun. Learning to dance correctly is easy with private lessons where you receive 100% of the teacher’s attention. Most of our students use private lessons to work on the more technical aspects of the dancing that make them quality dancers.
What should I/we wear?
Wear what is comfortable. Most people dress “nicely casual.” When first learning you don’t need special shoes, however, dress shoes and high heels with leather soles have a tendency to stick much less to the floor than shoes with rubber soles.
Do I need a dance partner?
Of course learning to dance with a partner has it’s advantages, but we are around 50/50 singles and couples… you’ll be right at home in an atmosphere where you can meet other singles or couples. Remember, dancing is a “social” activity. Improve your life… learn to dance!
