It varies based on how fast you learn, the difficulty of the dance, and how much you practice. We can answer this question more accurately at the end of our first lesson.

Wear supportive shoes with a smooth sole. Leather soles are best, but worn out rubber works. New tennis shoes, shoes with new rubber soles that grip, stiff stilettos, and flip flops are not recommended. Boots are OK if they are comfortable. For a great selection of dance shoes, visit Carmen's Dance Shoes.
Most wedding couples pay between $320-$590. It depends on how much you practice, the complexity of your dance, and your abilities.
Yes we offer in-home dance lessons for couples and groups if feasible with both of our schedules. Due to safety concerns, we are not able to offer in-home lessons for individual male students.
The industry standard these days is 45 minutes, however many students prefer a full hour. The choice is yours. You can always start with 45 minutes and upgrade to an hour for an additional $10 fee if time permits.
The studios that we use are private 95% of the time. Private space is ideal and in our opinion necessary for wedding dance lessons and the creativity of choreography. On a rare basis, we may have to share the floor in Kearny Mesa if it is extra busy, but we are careful to schedule lessons during slower times to ensure privacy. Furthermore, there are three studio rooms at Dance For 2 in Kearny Mesa, so the chance of sharing is low. Vernetta's Dance Studio and the North Park Lion's Club in North Park are 100% private.
We teach in North Park at Vernetta's Dance Studio/North Park Lion's Club (same building, different rooms) on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday afternoons and evenings. The parties we host are at the North Park Lion's Club. We teach in Kearny Mesa at Dance For 2 on weekday mornings, Thursday and Friday evenings, and weekends.
DJ Caree and myself (DJ Liza) both have a strong love of and vast knowledge of music dating back to early childhood. We both enjoy pleasing people and showing people a good time. While we don't offer elaborate lighting or special effects, what sets us apart from other disc jockeys is our ability to get out there and dance with you. We can teach you line dancing, partner dancing, or just freestyle hip hop with you! I got my start as a DJ right after college then took a break to teach dance then came back to it 6 years ago and enjoy teaching dance as well as being a DJ. Caree has been obsessed with music since childhood and recently discovered her fantastic talent as a DJ. Our expertise is in hip hop, rock, country, pop, oldies and music that you can dance to.
