I’m more than happy to answer all of your questions directly.

How long will it take me to learn how to dance?
Dance, like any physical activity, requires time and practice. If you have good balance, and can be light on your feet, you’ll learn quickly. If not, these skills and techniques will develop over time.

If you focus on a single dance, you’d be amazed at what you can learn in 4 lessons, taught over 4 weeks. But learning more than one dance can keep things exciting, and many of the techniques carry over from each dance. Or you could have a lot of fun, with 8, 12, or 16 lessons, and try them all, anymore than that and you’ll be officially hooked on dancing and never want to stop; which is okay, in fact I support it :).

What dances can you teach me?
I teach a large variety of dances, and I could teach you to dance socially, perform, and even compete athletically.
