Private Lessons in a Format That Fits YOU!

At Fred Astaire Dance Studios, we offer private courses for people who wish to learn to dance, but perhaps do not want to join a group dance class. These private courses are available in a format that fits you. Whether you prefer to learn in the comfort of your home through virtual courses or want to come to our Carmel studio to learn in-person, our skilled ballroom dance instructors will help you have fun while you learn new skills.

When you study ballroom dancing privately, you enjoy several benefits. First, you are able to progress at your own pace, moving forward when you are ready and holding back when you need a little more time to master a skill. Second, private lessons let you learn without other eyes on you. If you make a mistake, there’s no feeling of embarrassment. Our kind instructors help you move forward and learn from your mistake, so you can gain skill and confidence on the dance floor. Finally, private lessons allow for personalized instruction in just those areas, techniques, or skills that you need the most help. And, with virtual options available, you can get this personal instruction without ever leaving your home. Or, if you prefer in-person learning in a relaxed setting, our instructors are always happy to meet with you in person.

Remember, ballroom dancing is good for you. It gives you physical activity while also providing a platform for social activities. Once you are a trained dancer, you can head to the dance floor at the next wedding or event you attend with confidence. With private lessons from Fred Astaire Dance Studios, you can gain that confidence and enjoy that extra physical activity easily. Reach out today to schedule your private lesson, so you can enjoy the benefits of ballroom dancing.
