Private Ballroom Dance Teacher

Hello, my name is Anna and I have more than 22 years of the experience in ballroom dancing. I can teach Latin, ballroom, rhythm, smooth dances, including West Coast swing, salsa, merengue, Argentine tango, almost all couple dances, you name it. I have a huge experience working with the beginners with both left feet and with gold dancers, as well with pro dancers; I’m a national champion of my country and World Cup finalist, but as you remember: I have a huge experience with the beginners and two left feeters) I do believe in dancing, both: social and competitive and that’s why along with physical teaching I want to reach to everyone and share benefits of ballroom dancing)
Do you need to have a partner?! Preferably...but if you happen to be alone at home, I’ll teach you using whatever you will have around: tables, chairs, doors, etc.
Solo dancing?! Not a problem, I’ll teach you how to dance on your own
Wedding couple?! Great! I’ll teach you how to beautifuly dance together stress ...

We are complete novices for ballroom dancing-- Anna was wonderfully helpful in connecting prior to the lesson and preparing to help us get the most out of the hour that we booked. She is energetic, vivacious and has a highly effective teaching style. she is able to break the dance down with cues and rhythms that are easy to grasp and remember. We will definitely go back to her for another lesson.

I used to dance back in Russia for a couple years but I forgot everything since then. I’m glad I found Anna who speaks not only my language but also Russian. Just for a couple classes I refreshed my abilities and decided to go further with Anna and this is my favorite thing to do on earth for now.

Eugene is a fantastic instructor! He is highly knowledgeable and skilled when teaching different styles of dance . He takes the time to learn what your hopes and goals are for dancing and then pushes you to be better than you imagined you could be.

Eugene is a shockingly talented ballroom dancer. He is a strong leader and is capable of teaching lessons with an easy, yet highly informative approach. His knowledge of ballroom technique and etiquette is extensive, but most importantly he makes it enjoyable. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had. I enjoyed dancing with him and I enjoyed learning from him. He is a valuable asset to any student, novice or expert!

Worked with Eugene several times both alone and with a partner. Standard Foxtrot, Rhythm Chacha, East Coast Swing, and Smooth Viennese Waltz, covering both technique and choreography. I am looking forward to future lessons in any dance. He is meticulous and fun! I compete Gold Bar.

I highly recommend Tibor. He is an excellent dance instructor and unbelievably talented. Not everybody has the patience and skill set to teach, but Tibor is extremely good at this. I always leave my dance lessons feeling like I have accomplished something. Tibor makes learning dance fun and he listens carefully to my wants and needs. Tibor is very good at articulating and demonstrating each step and he knows how to slow down or advance me faster depending on how quickly I am getting it. Tibor has great energy and is very respectful and professional. He makes me feel comfortable and gives me encouragement that really builds my confidence on the dance floor. I really can’t say enough about how wonderful Tibor is as a genuine and authentic person and a dance instructor. I feel lucky to be working with him.

Private Ballroom Dance Lessons Near You

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers probably hold the title for most famous ballroom dancers, and generations have enjoyed watching them perform a variety of ballroom dances in their classic films. Watching them tap, quickstep, and do the Viennese Waltz around a glittering dance floor or up and down a set of stairs makes everyone want to get up and dance along with them. 

The ballroom dancing Fred and Ginger mastered includes a variety of partner dances that are danced both socially and competitively around the world. When you learn how to ballroom dance, you can go on to enter competitions or have fun twirling at a social dance, wedding, or other party. 

Since ballroom dancing's sometimes called social dancing or partner dancing, many believe you have to have a partner to take lessons, but that's actually not the case. Sure, you and a partner can learn together, but you can learn ballroom dancing with or without a dance lesson partner. So, if you've always wanted to waltz, swing, tango, quickstep, foxtrot, or rumba at a social dance, wedding, or salsa party, then don't let anything hold you back from signing up for ballroom dance classes. 

Why Learn Ballroom Dancing?

Fun is the first reason to learn ballroom dancing! You can practice on your own, dance with a partner, or dance with a group. If you like dressing up, then learn ballroom dancing purely for the clothes and costumes.

While dancing, you'll also be doing a lot of good for your body. Not only is ballroom dancing a great workout, it also improves coordination, muscle memory, brain memory, and stamina. You'll gain confidence as you grow stronger and become more and more comfortable with the steps and movements. 

Ballroom dancing is also a great outlet for socializing, meeting new people, and making new friends. As you learn from others, and they learn from you, you'll forge lasting bonds of trust. You'll begin to work better with others, while you blow off steam with your favorite dancing partner. 

The Best Way to Learn How to Ballroom Dance and What You'll Study in Lessons

Sure, you can find lots of free ballroom dance lessons and tutorials online, but the best way to learn is studying one-on-one with a private ballroom dance tutor. In private lessons, you'll receive personalized instruction and immediate feedback that simply isn't possible with online classes or in a larger group setting. You'll learn fast and also get to focus on the dances that interest you most. 

Plus, no two private lessons are alike. Your teacher will completely customize each class to keep you motivated and interested, while you learn at the pace and level that's right for you. For example, ballroom dance lessons for children differ greatly from ballroom dance classes for adults, in terms of content and teaching methods. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Ballroom Dancing

If you've never ballroom danced before or only have a little prior experience, then beginner lessons are right for you. In these lessons, you'll be introduced to ballroom dancing and learn some basic steps to the most common dances. Your teacher might choose to cover the following subjects:

  • Leading and following
  • Proper dance posture
  • Basic styling
  • Introductory waltz, swing, and rumba dance steps

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Ballroom Dancing

If you've already had some experience ballroom dancing, then you'll be most comfortable in intermediate lessons. In these classes, you'll learn to follow more complex choreography and tighten your partner dancing techniques. Your ballroom dance teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Increase elegance
  • Expression through dance
  • Learn complex routines and sequences
  • Dance conditioning

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Ballroom Dancing

Advanced lessons are intended for students who're already highly experienced dancers. Advanced students should have a firm grasp of the various types of ballroom dances. In advanced lessons, you or you and your dance partner will have the opportunity to fine-tune your techniques while working with a professional. Topics covered in advanced lessons depend on the interests and goals of the student, but your ballroom dance tutor might cover the following:

  • Advanced choreography
  • Incorporating acrobatics
  • Audition coaching
  • Competition and performance preparation

How to Find a Ballroom Dance Teacher Near you

If you're ready to earn a set of fancy feet, then it's time to start working with a private teacher. Finding a ballroom dance tutor on TakeLessons is easy! With a quick search, you'll find pages of experience and qualified ballroom dance teachers who offer private lessons both online and in-person. Before choosing the teacher who's right for you, we recommend reading through several profiles and reviews left by other aspiring dancers. 

The price of ballroom dance classes varies, but most teachers charge fees based on the length and frequency of lessons. You'll find that the cost of private lessons is well worth the investment. You'll learn new steps and dances quickly, while having a great time getting to know your ballroom dance teacher.
