Frequently Asked Questions

Introduction

Many young people dream of becoming dancers when they grow up, but what if you're already grown and are just coming to the realization that dance is your passion? It's never too late to start, and while selecting a dance studio for lessons or even choosing a dance style to train in might seem like a daunting task, it's the start of an exciting journey that will nourish your mind, body, and soul.

How can you become a good dancer without taking lessons?

Some dance styles, such as classical ballet, require professional training to master. However, if you can't afford or don't have time to take classes, consider immersing yourself in as much dance-related content as possible. Watch dance videos, tutorials on YouTube, and read anatomy books to learn about proper alignment. You should also exercise regularly to improve your stamina and strength.

How much are wedding dance lessons?

The average cost of wedding dance lessons in the United States is roughly $75-$150 per hour and can be up to $2,500 for packages of 10-20 sessions. The exact pricing will vary based on the city you live in, the studio, and potentially even the style of dance you're learning for your wedding.

Can you deduct dance lessons from taxes?

If your child is taking dance lessons, and you're using the dance school as an after-school child care alternative to daycare, then you may be able to write off up to $3,000 of the expense as a tax credit. In some cases, adult dance classes taken at an accredited post-secondary institution may also qualify for a tax deduction.

How do you write a dance lesson plan?

A good dance lesson plan should have a focus or intention, a clear set of skills that the students will be developing, and methods for having students achieve those outcomes. Typically, you draw up a lesson plan chart that breaks down the class into sections, indicating what you plan to do at each stage of instruction.

What shoes do you wear for dance lessons?

The shoes you need depend on the dance style. Ballet or tap classes require properly fitted ballet or tap shoes. Jazz classes sometimes require jazz shoes, but bare feet or foot thongs may be acceptable, which are also used for contemporary or lyrical dance classes. Ballroom dancers need an appropriate heeled shoe. Musical theater dancers may wear tap, character, or jazz shoes depending on the piece.

How many lessons will you need for a choreographed wedding dance?

For a choreographed wedding dance, you can typically purchase a package of 10-20 classes where you learn your dance over several weeks. However, if you're on a budget, you might consider taking three to five classes to learn your steps.

What shoes do you wear for ballroom dance lessons?

For ballroom dance shoes you can either wear a heel or a sneaker that hugs your foot nicely. Ideally, you should opt for shoes that have smooth, thin soles and low heels for optimal comfort.

When should you start dance lessons for children?

Kids can start formal dance lessons at three to four years old. Many dance schools have "kinderdance" programs where children have the opportunity to learn the basics of ballet. At five to six years of age, children can begin studying other forms of dance, such as jazz, tap, or musical theater.

How far before your wedding should you take dance lessons?

You should begin taking dance lessons at least a month before your wedding to ensure there's sufficient time for an instructor to choreograph your dance and for you to learn it. However, you need to book the lessons well before this date.

Are private dance lessons worth it?

In many cases, private dance lessons are worthwhile for individuals who want to accelerate their progress with the personalized attention of an instructor. However, it's beneficial to participate in group lessons simultaneously because there are skills you can't learn individually, such as teamwork.

Are you supposed to tip for private dance lessons?

You generally don't need to tip a dance instructor for private lessons, unless you want to because they've gone above and beyond in some capacity. However, most dance instructors charge high rates so they're making an excellent wage without tips.

Can you use copyrighted music for dance lessons?

Dance studios in the United States are required by law to have a license from the ASCAP and BMI which enables the use of copyrighted music in classes. Without this license, a studio faces a hefty fine per song.

Can you wear leggings to dance lessons?

You may be able to wear leggings to some dance lessons. However, some classes have strict dress policies so you should double-check about the proper attire for your lesson ahead of time. While leggings may be appropriate for ballroom or contemporary lessons, they won't be acceptable for a classical ballet class.

Do football players take dance lessons?

Yes, many football players are taking dance lessons because the transferable skills they gain can help them on the field. Pittsburg Steelers player Steve McLendon is quoted as saying, "It's harder than anything else I do," when asked about his ballet training.

How old is too old to take ballroom dance lessons?

It's never too late to start dance training, regardless of your age. Many studios offer ballroom dance classes for adults at all levels, including beginners. As long as your physical fitness level enables you to dance, there's always time to learn.

How do you warm up before dance lessons?

Some of the best ways to warm up your body before a dance lesson are taking a brisk walk or doing jumping jacks, lunges, and push-ups. These exercises will get your muscles moving and your blood pumping so you're ready to start dancing when you arrive at the studio.

What is the difference between dance therapy and dance lessons?

Dance lessons involve learning dance steps for the purpose of improving your technique or preparing for a performance. Dance therapy uses dance movements as a means to express emotions, potentially enhancing your self-esteem and mental health, and improving your body's motor functions.
