Dance Lessons

We teach lessons in Ballroom and Latin dance in my home studio: 

Waltz, Foxtrot, American Tango, Argentine Tango, Rumba, Mambo/Salsa, Merengue, Cha-Cha, Bolero, Bachata, Samba, Nightclub Two-step, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Hustle and more!

What sets us apart locally is that we teach as a couple. We can dance an analyze both the leader and follower parts and have an extra pair of eyes to observe.


Dance Lessons are $45.00 for 50 minutes or $30 for 30 minutes plus 7% sales tax ($48.15 or $32.10). The price is the same for a single, a couple or as many as two couples at a time. For two couples, the cost would be just $11.25 per person plus the 7% sales tax for a 50-minute lesson!

Try to avoid wearing rubber-soled shoes for dancing because it is harder to turn on the floor in them. Smooth, leather-soled shoes work well. Regular dancers often buy shoes made specially for ballroom dancing with either smooth, leather soles or suede soles. Backstage Bodywear, 205 West Washington Street in Charleston, offers 10% discounts to my students. For more information, see the FAQs page.
