Each person learns differently. So my lessons are customized for each individual.Nearly everyone is scared to dance at first. You need only start. Simply begin; I can help with the rest.

"Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!"

"I consider myself very fortunate that I met Stephanie some years ago. As we started working together my skills started to improve. I have long realized it takes me more time to develop than other students. After working with Stephanie, eventually I was able to start social dancing. Eventually, we also worked together on performance classes with other students. These were all wonderful experiences for me. Stephanie is very dedicated and passionate about dance. She is very attentive to detail. I highly recommend Stephanie!"

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.
