Dance School in Pacific Grove, CA The best reason to choose private dance lessons over group classes is that you get all the time and attention to yourself. Everyone learns differently and during the lesson your instructor will focus just on you and will determine whether you need to work more on steps, technique or styling. We have taught ballroom dancing to all levels of students here in Monterey/Carmel/Salinas CA and our expensive experience enables us to recognize which approach will work best for you. For some people, it might feel a little scary to begin learning to dance through group classes. That's why a lot of people prefer to start with private instruction where they can learn to feel confident on the dance floor and be able to dance with other people.

Often we hear people say that they have two left feet ;) When you start to learn in private dance lessons, you will see how quickly and easily you can progress. Group classes usually do not provide individualized instruction, as there may be another twenty students besides you in the class. But group classes are good when you take them along with private ballroom lessons. As an addition, they can acquaint you with different dances and also can teach you how to lead and follow, which is very important for partners. We think private lessons are the best way to start. If you're local and live in: Monterey, Carmel, Marina, Seaside, Pacific Grove or Salinas, CA, then you qualify for a complimentary ballroom lesson!

But, how do you have the most fun without having to stress about it? The best answer dance lessons! We are experienced professionals of wedding choreography. Here are our top 5 reasons why you need ballroom lessons:

1. Reduce the stress: The best reason to receive ballroom dancing lessons is to take the stress off of the two of you. Unless you both are experienced dancers and have taken lessons together in the past, the idea of a first dance could sound incredibly scary to you. Days before the wedding, we have had brides call us in a panic to receive referrals for instructors in Monterey or Carmel CA. Instead of getting to this point, schedule yourself some private classes, so the two of you will be prepared.

2. Knowledge & experience: A good reason to book dance lessons is that your instructor will have much more knowledge and experience than you. Your instructor will find out what type of suits you best, will listen to the music you've chosen and is going to give recommendations on how it should look and how many lessons you need.

3. Think of details: What song should you dance to? How big is the floor? Where will your guests be seated? One of the best things about having dance lessons is the tips you will pick up from your instructor. Your instructor will be able to help you answer all of those questions and provide you with a list of suggested songs, if you has not found any and give you helpful tips on all other details.

4. Practice: The more time in advance you have - the better for you and for your preparation. If you're local and live in Monterey or Salinas we'd recommend to book your first lesson 4-5 months before the wedding. You'll have more time to practice your dance routine and your instructor can spend more quality time with the two if you on making this dance special and unique, so you can enjoy it on your wedding day and impress your guests.

5. Enjoyment: One of the best things about having lessons is that you can relax and enjoy yourself both before and on the day of your wedding.
