9 thoughts on “Dancing for Beginners: What Can I Expect at My First Lesson?

  1. These are some really great tips for anyone interested in taking dance lessons! I was really nervous when my wife told me she wanted us to take dance lessons together, but after doing some research and preparing for the pace, I actually had a lot of fun. We’ve been going to weekly lessons for three months now and I’m usually more excited than she is. Thanks so much for writing!

  2. Do you have to do freestyle in dance classes? If so, when will they make you? Surely, when you’re not a beginner, right?

    1. Hi Melissa! Most dance classes will not have you freestyle as a beginner. You will likely be working on some choreographed moves with the help of your teacher. Hope that helps! 🙂

  3. My wife and I are thinking about taking a dance class together but we aren’t sure what to expect. I like that you mention how classes are fast paced so you should do your best to pay attention. We’ll be ready for all the physical work and do our best at keeping up. Thanks for the tips!

  4. Thanks for helping me know what to plan for in the first dance lesson. I didn’t know that some dance classes could be two hours long but still be fast-paced. I wonder if the type of dance could affect how long a session is, or if it doesn’t necessarily matter.

  5. Thanks a lot for mentioning how you should take the time to set goals for yourself when choosing the best dance classes. It is important to remember that doing some research and understand what you want to get out of your own dance classes can help you get the results you need. We are planning on enrolling our little girls in some dance classes, so I’m glad I found your page.

  6. Thanks for pointing out that a lot of new dance moves and terminology will be thrown at you at once, so you have to have an open mind. My best friend is getting married at the end of the summer, and she and her fiance want to have a really beautiful, memorable first dance. I think it would be really helpful if they could go to dance lessons and learn all the terminology and how to dance gracefully with each other. Thanks for the tips.

  7. If you want to really learn the dance, I recommend getting the private lesson. If you wanna socialize while dancing, the group lesson is the way to go.
