Private dance lessons are a great way to improve your dancing in a short time. With one-on-one instruction, I can help you improve the look, style and feel of your dancing in a way that group classes cannot accomplish. Because I have the opportunity to dance with you and/or coach you and your partner, you get exactly what you need in the way that you learn best and accomplish goals customized for your needs. I often co-teach, so you get the benefit of two teachers for the price of one in many of your lessons.
Don Anderson Dance provides private lessons in Socorro, NM at several dance venues.
What are the Benefits of Private Dance Lessons?
- You can learn 3-4 times faster than group lessons
- You can focus on what YOU want to learn
- You receive immediate feedback
- You feel how technique works for lead or follow instead of just listening and watching.
- You progress at your own pace
- Lessons are booked according to your schedule
- You can make up missed group lessons
- You can have choreography or dance patterns customized to maximize your strengths.
- The private dance lesson provides a discreet environment where you can ask questions you may not want to ask in front of a large group
Private classes provide an ideal learning environment for dancers (or aspiring dancers) at any level. They can help a shy person develop confidence on the dance floor, or speed an experienced dancer’s transition to the intermediate or advanced level. They are a great way to develop closeness with your significant other or enjoy the process of learning with a friend.
How Do Private Lessons Enhance Group Lessons?
Group lessons are a great way to learn patterns, but there is no substitute for working one-on-one in a private dance lesson with an accomplished instructor to learn the finer points of dancing. Private lessons will greatly improve your dancing skill.
A private lesson is your chance to clarify what you learned in a group class and further refine your technique. You can cover one dance or several during your lessons. You can cover specific questions such as how to execute a particular figure or how to more effectively lead or follow. I will break down steps to their simplest forms and show you pattern variations to increase your versatility. You can learn how to listen to the music, keep the rhythm and how to move to the beat. You can learn how to improvise and be creative.
While a Group Lesson can teach you a pattern, you may not have completely mastered the technique and be unaware of problems that hold your dancing back. A group class instructor cannot give each student individual attention during the class, without slowing the class down.
If you are taking private lessons in addition to group lessons, you have the ability to take what you learn in the group class and polish it further, maximizing the value of the group class.
Can we, as a couple, take lessons together?
Yes, you can take your private lessons together as dance partners. Many people prefer to take private lessons with a partner so they have someone to practice with afterwards. A private lesson costs the same for one person as for two. Partners can also split the cost of the lesson between them, reducing the lesson price by half.
Schedule your private lessons, at your convenience, there is no better time to improve your dancing.
