Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Dance Instructor

Taking a dance lesson from an instructor or studio can be a fun way to move and get a fun workout and learn the latest dance to wow the crowd at the next wedding. But before you salsa down to the studio and sign up for a lesson or class, there are some important questions you should ask first.

  • What kind of dance lessons do I want?
    Consider your level of fitness, how much rhythm you actually have and how comfortable you are working with a partner before you pick a class. All of these factors will help you determine whether you are looking for salsa, tap or modern dance lessons.

  • What kind of instructions does the studio specialize in?
    If the dance school near you specializes in ballroom swing, then you should stick with that for the best experience. And if you want to learn tap, a belly dancing school probably won't be much help.

  • How much time do I have to rehearse?
    If you want to take a lesson in ballroom, tap or a more advanced level of dance it's going to require much more time to rehearse than a dance where you don't have to coordinate with a partner. Hip Hop dance usually only requires learning the steps and can be practiced at home alone.

  • How comfortable am I with my body?
    Most classes require you to perform in front of others, so if you're uncomfortable with pole dancing in front of a crowd or shaking your belly with strangers, you might want to consider something less flirty like ballet or jazz dance.

Along with salsa dancing, some teachers may specialize in hip hop and jazz dancing. Other common styles trainers focus on include tap, swing, modern and ballroom dancing.

    Before being able to teach a class in a dance studio, teachers typically need years of experience. Most professional dance instructors possess an innate sense of rhythm and balance. The level of experience required of prospective instructors, by schools and studios often varies. For instance, ballet schools regularly require their teachers to have a significant amount of experience performing in ballet companies before being hired.
