Frequently Asked Questions for Private Lessons

Do I need to bring a partner?
No. In a private lesson you choose to bring a partner or come solo and partner with me. 

What can I work on during a private lesson?
Anything you want! You can choose how you'd like to spend your private lesson time. Is there a specific dance you'd like to learn or improve on? Is there a technique you'd like to perfect? Are you having difficulty with a particular figure and need an instructor to help you figure it out? Just want to learn more figures? It's up to you!

What is the benefit of a private lesson vs a group class?
In a private lesson, I work one-on-one with you and your partner (if you bring one). This allows me to focus on just you and customize your lesson to your needs, so you'll get individualized feedback and instruction on your dancing. Privates work great in conjunction with group classes so you can learn new figures in class and perfect them in a private.
