Alternatively, you can opt to learn via private lessons. Whereas the cost per hr is more, you will cover up to 3 or 4 times the amount you’d cover in a regular class, in just 1 private lesson, so the value is pretty much equitable. In addition, you are not locked in to a set weekly class time – you can book and cancel and re book with relative freedom.
This option is well worth considering if:-
You have somewhat of an irregular schedule.
You feel a little shy to dance with others.
You really feel like you’re trailing behind in the class, or can’t face a class full of people you can always try a private lesson – it can be well worth it. Private lessons allow you to tailor the class to your own pace and you will have the instructor’s undivided attention for the whole hour. You can schedule them as regularly or infrequently as you please and they offer the flexibility of paying casually or paying for a block to receive a discount. You can have your lessons on your own ( the most effective for your dollar) or you can team up with as many as 3 others to make it more cost effective, but you will of course only get 1/4 of the time devoted to you. Either way it’s a worthwhile option but does not replace the need for practice!
