Private Lessons


Customized to YOUR Needs


Faster Progress



Private dance lessons are all about YOU.

Private Lessons give both children and adults the opportunity to work one-on-one with a professional instructor. They are ideal for anyone who want to improve their technique or need specific coaching on either technique, choreography or audition preparation. Private lessons also work well for dancers with injury and/or contraindications and allow for greater flexibility with scheduling.

Our instructors will personalize each lesson based on your individual needs and goals, thus ensuring the most thorough and rapid learning process, all while keeping it fun, easy, and comfortable.

Advantages of private dance lessons

  • You can learn work on specific techniques
