Whether you're interested in taking up dance as a new hobby, have your sights set on winning a gold medal in a dance competition, want to brush up your dance steps, or simply want to feel confident on the dance floor at a friend's wedding, I'm here to help!   


Private lessons are a unique and tailored learning experience for you to learn dance because each of your lessons are specifically tailored to your goals. 


We're happy to teach you if you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced student. 


If you want personalized attention when it comes to learning how to dance, private dance lessons may be just what you're looking for!

I'm Interested in Private Lessons...

Okay, so you're interested in taking private dance lessons. But just where do you start? 


You may be wondering, "I want to learn one dance that would be handy at a club/or maybe I should brush up on that Swing I learned in college/or I want to get serious about competing, but I'm not sure what to do!"


Don't worry: you can rest easy! I'm here to help you every step of the way. 


During our first lesson together, we'll work on one-on-one to identify your short-term and long-term goals when it comes to dance. 


I bet you're thinking, "Goals? But I just want to learn how to dance!" 


And I'm here to let you know you shouldn't let the word "goal" scare you! 


Everyone has goals in dance. This goes for the social dancer who goes out dancing with friends on the weekend or for a seasoned dancer who wants to bring home the gold medal at a local competition. 


We'll create an instruction plan that's as unique as you and will work towards it together during our time together.

And maybe you're still undecided but you know you just want to "learn how to dance." Don't worry! I can help you with that. 


I'm happy to recommend dance styles to you in your quest to learn dance.
