Private Lessons


Private Lessons for Technique

This is a perfect opportunity to work one on one with a faculty member. The teacher will hone in on your specific needs and design the whole lesson just for you.  You don’t have to have a specific problem or focus to take private lessons, but it helps to talk to your teacher about your goals and keep an open line of communication. We offer technique private lessons in Ballet, Jazz, Acro and Tap.   

  • One Student: $40 per half hour
  • Two Students: $30 per half hour
  • Three Students: $25 per half hour

Decisions are based on the ability, effort, attendance, attitude of the student and their progress in their regular weekly classes.
  • Dance Spectrum Competitive Students are invited to enter their Private Lessons into the competitions specified by the Dance Spectrum Faculty. 
  • Any Private Lesson must get the permission of the director before participating in any other competitive events as an independent entry. If permission is granted, understand a DS Faculty member is not required to attend. 
  • It is the responsibility of the student to retain the choreography given during rehearsals and clean up sessions. To aid in the education process, Parents are encouraged to video tape at the end of each session.
  • Private Lessons will be suspended if Dance Spectrum accounts are not kept current and/or attendance policies are not maintained.
