Can Couples Take Lessons?           <back to top>

Lessons can be arranged for Singles or Couples.  Often Couples get individual lessons and then couples coaching to help them dance perfectly together.  Singles lessons are available for both Men and Women. Pricing is the same whether I teach a couple or a single. You are paying for my time not on a per person basis.




How Long Are The Lessons?          <back to top>

Lessons are normally 45 minutes in length.  Double lessons can be arranged if desired.  Please note, if you are late arriving, your time will be shortened as I will not allow other students to have their lessons delayed to allow for a tardy student.




What Do I Do To Get Started?      <back to top>

Simply Write me an email or call me.  Start by clicking here  Contact Me

Please Note, I am often teaching and can't answer the phone during lessons. Leave a message and I will call you back as soon as I have a few minutes.  I check emails every evening.




What Times Are Available?        <back to top>

My schedule changes almost daily as new students start and others move on.  See my teaching schedule for my teaching hours and when we talk we can work out a specific time schedule for you. 





Where Are The Lessons Taught?      <back to top>

Primarily at Dance Boulevard in Cambell as well as other locations in the San Jose area.
Here's a convenient map!




How Do I Dress for Lessons?       <back to top>

Experienced Students will know their own dress requirements. 

For New Students, you should wear comfortable clothes that will allow for full movement including raising your arms and taking full steps forward, backward and sideways.  Shoes should be comfortable.  Women just starting might not want to wears heals yet and until they get use to getting their feet out of the way, women should wear closed toe shoes as there will be inevitable stepping on toes at first.  Trust me, you will learn quickly how to keep your feet out of harm's way.




What if I can't Make a Lesson?      <back to top>

Because I block my time for my students, I require a 24 hour notice of cancellation in order to make best use of my time.  To avoid a $60 cancellation fee, please call at least 24 hours in advance if you aren't going to be able to make your lesson.  Also, I try to be fair to all my students and classes start on time. If a student is late, I cannot continue into another students time in order to teach a full lesson.




How Often Should I Take Lessons?      <back to top>

This is a very individual thing.  If there is no time frame involved and you are just learning dance for your own pleasure, you should consider weekly lessons. This will give you time to practice each week. If you would like to progress faster, 2 or more lessons a week are often a good choice.   If you are preparing for a wedding or another event we can tailor your lessons to meet your needs.




What About Practice?      <back to top>

Practice, Practice, Practice. If you want the most from your lessons, you need to practice between lessons. You can do this on your own or with a partner, at your home or at the studio. In any case, it is a very important part of the process.
