Dance Lessons:  Social Dance, Ballroom, Latin/Rhythm, Swing, Salsa, Tango, Freestyle or Club dance classes and so much more.  We choose to display our prices and fees UP FRONT!  We know that we charge far less than the going rate.  We do this to afford you the opportunity to experience dance without having to refinance your home and reduce your child's college fund.  But seriously, many studios make you contact them to find out how much it costs to dance. it is!

Private Lessons:  Lessons are one hour long and cost $70.00.   The best and most effective way to learn is to take private lessons. You actually save time and get to work on those things that are best for you and your partner, if you have one!  If you do not have a partner, the teacher will instruct you and be your partner.  Please contact John for specific details.

Private Group Lessons:  We can arrange a comfortable group class price if you can provide the group.  You need three or more people and I can make sure that all have a great time.  A lesson for three people will cost $25.00 per person per hour.  The price for two or more couples is $40.00 per couple per hour (or $20.00 a person if not a couple).  Contact us for availability and pricing of larger groups!  If you have a group of co-workers, friends, family, or other organization that wishes to do group classes, we will try to accommodate you and base the price per person.  Generally $10.00 per person depending on the size of the group usually 12 or more people.

CANCELLATION  POLICY:  StudioDNA must have at least 24 hrs. notice or the full price of your private lesson or private group will be charged.  We ask that you respect our teacher's time.  We have many clients and try very hard to accommodate everyone.  The lesson you cancel could have been used by another dancer.  Thank you for your patronage and consideration in our request.

NO e-mails or texts please!   PLEASE  CALL  ASAP!   John @ 410-905-3262
