Couples dance lessons are a great way to hone your skills, but are private or group lessons right for you?

Couples dance lessons are a great way to hone your skills, but are private or group lessons right for you?

So you're interested in taking couples dance lessons, but you can't choose between private or group. Deciding on group or private couples dance lessons doesn't have to be stressful. In fact, the answer is easier than you think and can be found in your dancing goals.

Why are you taking lessons? Are you only interested in learning the steps for dancing on date night? Or are your aspirations to perfect your technique for an event or take your couples dancing to the competition level? If you fall somewhere in between and are unsure, maybe you should consider the benefits of each. 

The more budget friendly options is group couples dance lessons. These lessons help you become familiar with the basic patterns and dance techniques in a fun environment while familiarizing yourself with social dancing by partnering with a variety of people. Though if you prefer to keep your partner the entire class, that's permissible as well. Some disadvantages to group lessons are not getting enough individual couples attention because of class size or not moving through the material quickly due to others in the class who may not advance at your pace. 

If your couples dancing goals include competition, dancing for an event like a wedding, or you'd just like personal fulfillment in learning proper technique and partnership framing, private couples dance lessons is the best choice. In fact, in one private lesson, you can potentially learn four weeks of group class material.
