How much do salsa dance lessons cost?

Nov 06, 2018

If you're looking for a fun and exciting way to stay fit, salsa dancing may be just the thing for you! Dance gets your heart rate up, a key point to a good exercise. Dance is also a great way to improve your flexibility and coordination.

The upbeat pace of salsa makes it a popular choice for many to learn. It’s full of fun — and it’s a great way to get out and socialise! Going to an event to dance the salsa means you will meet lots of new partners.

Many groups will go out to dance clubs specifically for the opportunity to dance. So whether you want to expand your social circle or simply get better at dancing, you will know salsa is the perfect choice!

Considerations

With so many benefits at hand for salsa dancing, you may wonder what it might cost to learn this wonderful exercise. The overall rate per hour depends on your teacher and what you are hoping to learn in your lessons.

With so many variables, it can be difficult to determine what the actual cost will be. We outline some of the top considerations in this guide to help you plan out your budget for your salsa dance lessons.

Goals

You may already know what’s caught your attention and drawn you to the idea of learning how to dance the salsa. It could be that you saw a performance. Or perhaps you have always harboured the desire to learn the steps and moves of the dance. Examining your inspiration is key to determining your goals and finding a teacher who can help you reach them.

Perhaps there is a wedding in your future, and salsa will be your choice to impress on the dance floor. Lessons will help you prepare your moves and make this a night to remember.

The same applies if you are learning salsa for a special event. It could be a dance fundraiser or reception at a corporate event. You may even be preparing a special performance for this type of gathering. Or you may be hoping to win a competition. A teacher can help you improve your skills and focus on becoming the best.

It’s also a great way to work out. Salsa activates muscles all over your body, so your abs, legs, and hips will thank you for the activity. Plus, it’s a lot of fun to exercise this way! But you don’t need to feel like you have to dance to improve your muscle or flexibility. You can also dance as a hobby!  

Student’s Experience Level

Your instructor needs to create the right lesson plan so you’ll see the best results. In order to do this properly, they need to know your experience level! From beginner to advanced student, whether you want to learn the basics of footwork or polish your skills, you should pass on your level of comfort and knowledge.

Be honest when assessing your skills. You want your lessons to help you, after all, and the only way to do this is start in the right place.

This is also helpful in making sure you have the right partner. If one partner is a lot more experienced, it can be difficult for the other to keep up. This is why it’s best to discuss the level of skill to ensure a positive relationship is encouraged during the dance. A more experienced partner can take on the role of teacher to ensure everyone enjoys themselves dancing.

Length of Lessons

A lesson needs to be long enough for your teacher to explain what you are doing as well as demonstrate it and then give you time to practise. So most dance lessons are typically between 45 to 60 minutes in length. This provides an opportunity to learn about the step as well as allowing you the time to try out what you’ve learned.

Once you have worked through the choreography and basic counting of beats, the majority of your lessons should be spent practicing your steps. The more time you take to run through the steps, whether you are focusing on footwork or learning special salsa moves, the better you will be. This includes practice time at home. So even if you go with a shorter lesson, you can make up for the time with home practice!

It takes time to teach your muscles how to respond correctly so you will want to give yourself as much practice as possible. Try to go to lessons on a regular basis, such as once a week or twice a month.

Experience

To learn how to salsa like a pro, you’ll want to hire one as your teacher! Their years of experience have made them experts, so this should be the first thing you inspect as you consider a potential teacher. Look for a few years of experience dancing professionally. They may also list some awards they have won to further assure you of their qualifications and skill as a dancer.

Take a look at their Bidvine profile to see if there are any photos of their dancing in action. You can also find reviews from past clients here.

Written by previous or current students, reviews can give you an idea of what a class is like before you go. Perhaps a teacher likes to describe the move before showing it to you, or they may work one-to-one with each student to provide proper guidance. This information can be a great way to discern if their teaching style sounds like it will be a good fit.

Location

Dance professionals typically operate out of a dance studio or gym. These spaces are set up perfectly for dance! They have the open space and slightly springy floor required to make dance happen. Often, a dance studio will have mirrors to help you see the way your body is moving in order to make adjustments and corrections. But even without this feature, your teacher will use the open room to direct you to move in the right ways. 

Try and find a dance teacher who teaches in a space near you. This will keep you from getting stressed on a long commute to the space. It makes it easier to commit to your lesson plan too!

Of course, you can choose to have a dance pro come to teach you at your location. But you’ll still need to find a venue that has the space you need to move around.

I absolutely love Vaida. I had a knee injury that put me off working out for a long time and with Vaida, that pain has entirely vanished. Her form and her teaching is of the highest quality. I recommend her very highly and also find the training space complete with a lovely atmosphere. Well worth it all, if I could rate 10 more stars, I would!

Katarina is a very charming, friendly and professional Massage Therapist. She identified that I had a back problem and was careful (via communicating) not to cause undue pain. She was great - one of the very best massages I have ever had! In addition, her place of business is excellent- a lovely, big room, full of character. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend her to a family member, or friend.Thanks Kat! You are wonderful
