My students and I wear masks and sanitize our hands before and after the private one-on-one lesson. Lessons are currently held inside the dance studio. If preferred and feasible, though, I do have outdoor space in my backyard in Tierrasanta (92124). I can also give online lessons upon request but have found that the majority of students would rather learn to dance in person.
Many students think that they can learn to dance in one or two lessons. One lesson is a great way to try dancing for the first time, celebrate a birthday or date night, or get last minute wedding dance help. We recommend between 4-15 lessons if you actually want to learn how to dance, prepare for a wedding, and or simply gain confidence on the dance floor. We offer several packages to help you achieve your dance goals and you can always add lessons later on.
Out of courtesy to our instructors we ask that you give at least 8 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your lesson. Lessons that are cancelled or rescheduled without 8 hours notice will be charged the full amount of the lesson.
Yes! Students, seniors, and military save 10%. I also offer a payment plan or sliding scale on a case by case basis for those who need it. Everyone deserves the chance to dance!
Most wedding couples spend between $260-$500. It depends on how much you practice, the complexity of your dance, and your abilities.
We ask that students pay for their first lesson in advance when scheduling. This payment may be applied towards the package of your choice if taking more lessons. We accept cash, check, PayPal, Venmo, and credit cards.

Wear comfortable clothes. Wear supportive shoes with a smooth sole. Leather soles are best, but worn out rubber works too. Shoes with new rubber soles that grip, stiff stilettos, and flip flops are not recommended. Leather bottom boots are fine.
Refund requests must be in writing and within 30 days of purchase. Refunds may be granted for unused lessons assuming you gave at least 8 hours notice before cancelling.
45 minutes is the industry standard and great if you are on a tight budget, have a short attention span or are already finished choreographing and just need to practice and polish things up. One hour is ideal for special occasions, learning more than one genre, and early on when in the midst of choreographing a wedding dance. 90 minutes is best for last minute preparation especially if you think you can only come once or twice.
Yes. I always teach in a private space. That is how I was trained and that is what I prefer. The only exception is the main floor at the Kearny Mesa studio. It is shared space, however I tend to teach there during slow times when no one is around so it is often empty.
I usually teach private dance lessons with one or two students, but if you would like to create a small semi-private group class with friends or relatives, I'd be happy to teach your group. Check our home page for any current small group classes.
