Dance lessons offers students a chance to learn some new moves--even if the moves are centuries old. Possibilities range from ballroom to ballet and even pole dancing. Classes are offered in both group and private settings, for both adults and children.

Typical costs:

  • Non-competitive or social ballroom dancing group classes cost $3-$25 each for adults, depending on location and level of instructor. Dances are taught through standardized steps including the traditional foxtrot, waltz, tango, swing and Latin cha cha, samba and rumba. Private sessions typically cost $50-$200 per couple, depending on location and level of instructor. Children pay about $10 for group classes and $50-$80 for private session hours, depending on level of instructor. Competitive ballroom dancing-- Dancesport --can cost $30,000-$100,000 per year, depending on the number of events and levels and costumes.
  • For the bride and groom to be, wedding dance classes can help the couple make a good impression on their first dance together. Group classes cost about $10-$30 per couple, per lesson, with three to seven lessons needed, depending on the couple's skill level. Several ballroom dances are generally covered. Private lessons cost about $55-$125, depending on location.
  • Group ballet lessons cost about $15-$20 per person for adult drop-in classes, depending on location and level of both instructor and student, and about $45-$125 for private one-on-one instruction. Strength, balance and movement are studied under a trained instructor. Children's ballet costs about $13-$60 each class for group, and $34-$75 for private classes.
  • Pole dancing uses a vertical metal pole and combines dance moves with arm and core strength. Classes typically cost $12-$40 per person, per one-hour class, depending on location. Private lessons cost about $90-$120 per hour. Pole dancing parties in a studio typically cost $35-$60 per person for two hours and include the instructor, poles and music. Depending on the size of the group, each person should have their own pole. At-home pole dancing parties are also available in many areas and cost about $20-$25 per person.

What should be included:
  • A seasoned instructor should lead the class from warm ups, through dance movements to cool down in a setting large enough to accommodate the class size.
Additional costs:
  • Men's ballroom shoes[1] cost $60-$100 on average, while women's shoes cost $60-$200. Ballet slippers cost $18-$24 or $65-$200 or more for Pointe shoes[2] .
  • If the class culminates in a performance, ask about the costs for costume rental, program ads or additional rehearsals.
Discounts:
  • Purchasing multiple lessons together as a package often reduces the per-class price by about $3-$5.50.
  • Ask about senior or student rates, which may also reduce the rates by $3-$5.50 per class.
Shopping for dance lessons:
  • Check local adult education or community center for various dance class openings and costs.
  • USA Dance maintains a list of local chapters[3] that teach ballroom dancing, while Ballroom Dancers.com offers a search tool by state and dance style[4] .
