Private Lesson FAQ’s
Do I need a partner?
No! Many students start taking lessons on their own and many start with a partner. Either way we’ve got you covered. If you do not have a partner you’ll dance with your teacher and all their attention will be focused on you.
If I bring my partner is there an extra cost?
No! The private lesson price is the same whether one or two people take the lesson. We can also accommodate larger groups at an additional cost.
Is it appropriate for absolute beginners to take private lessons?
Yes! In fact we recommend that you start with private lessons so that your instructor can create a personalized program and develop a class schedule that will be perfect for you. Private lessons help you learn more efficiently by eliminating guesswork.
How many lessons will it take until I’m great at the dance I want to learn?
It depends! At your introductory lesson we will learn more about your goals and how you learn and can give you a better idea at that time. But dance is truly an incredible journey – when you start it is often best to keep an open mind about the process of learning itself. Everyone learns at their own rate and the rate at which you learn is perfect! For best results we recommend taking two lessons per week to start out.
Can you accommodate high-level and professional dancers?
Yes! As the largest studio in Manhattan, EPA Dance Studio has vast resources of the best dancers and coaches to help you reach your goals.
What should I wear to take private lessons?
What you wear is actually a very important part of your learning. For your first class wear clothes that are comfortable and make you feel fabulous. Once your goals become more clear your instructor will guide you as to what to wear.
Do I need special shoes?
True dance addicts eventually turn into dance SHOE addicts! Depending on your goals it may be beneficial to invest in a proper pair of dance shoes. However, it is very important to make this purchase with the guidance of your instructor to avoid getting something that won’t work. For your first class wear comfortable shoes you already own that allow you to move easily across a wood floor without feeling too “sticky” – for instance, sneakers are generally not ideal due to too much traction. The shoes should also stay securely on your foot so flip flops and slippers do not work. If you’re unsure, socks are always a great backup plan on your first class!
I would like to learn a specific dance. Will my introductory lesson focus on it?
The introductory lesson is a chance for your instructor to understand your goals, movement and learning style better in order to personalize subsequent lessons to you perfectly. In order to do that, they will use their best judgement as to how to conduct the lesson. However you can certainly expect your desire to learn a specific dance to be addressed!
