Private Latin dance lessons.

This page features top dance instructors in Phoenix area, that give private Latin dance lessons (salsa, mambo, bachata, merengue, cha-cha) for dancers of all ages and levels of experience: from beginner to advanced.

Learning to dance is not something you can do fast. Usually it takes years to become a good dancer. Majority of people learn to dance by taking group lessons, practicing at home while watching dance patterns on youtube, joining a group that does dance performances, or going out to dance socially. There are a few instances when you may consider private lessons rather than any other way of learning:
1. You are trying to improve your dancing skills for a specific date (wedding, anniversary, special event) and you need to do it in a timely manner. Taking private lessons gives you the opportunity to customize your lesson and spend time practicing only what you need for the moment.
2. You are just starting to learn and need a jump-start to give you enough confidence to go on a dance floor in the social setting.
3. You have a very busy schedule and there are no good group classes being offered during the time of the day you have available for practice.
Those are probably the most common reasons people take private lessons.
