Do you charge per lesson or must one pay for a package?

they have both options. you can pay lesson per lesson, but if you take in a package the price is going down.   Wink

Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels.

Do you have the option to take privates only with no party or groups?

Well, keep in mind that our prices are artifically low because of the location we're in and because the studio is so fiercely independent, but for DanceWorld/American Ballroom Center in Nashville:

$65-75/hour for top-tier instruction
David Hamilton: $80-85/hour
Saturday night parties: $17 single, $30 couple, which includes a 1-hour beginner or intermediate group class, a 2.5-hr social, snacks, and sodas
Group classes: $15, and David Hamilton teaches 2 classes a week himself
Sunday afternoon parties: $15, which includes a 1-hour beginner or intermediate group class, a 2 hour social, light snacks, and sodas
Showcases: $30-40, depending on whether we have guest pros coming in to do a show or not

Outside coaches range in price based on their expenses.  The last coaching I got was back in March and it cost me $135 for 45 minutes, with the #2 couple in their division, and it was worth every penny!

yup, you can get quite a workout!  If you do one style (standard or latin)  most evenings you dance a bit more than 1/3rd of the time - there is a split between these two and line dancing.  We actually did some latin too last night so it really was quite exhausting.

I love to see this.

I can say that we are in the cheaper range.   Grin $118 for a private lesson, but in that you get also either group class or party for free.

I payed much more. my lessons were in range from $200 - $300.  Tongue

For our area (Midwest) that would be too high, even for a studio lesson.

I agree. 
In this part of the world, that would be considered to be cost prohibitive.

i don't want to sound like a snob, but what we give to our students is in one way priceless. to some of my students i changed life. we also have on our guest party students from another studios, and when i compare, well i can say that our students know what are they doing.  Grin

Aren't you in Chicago, SK?  I would think in a larger city like Chi-town would have more expensive everything!

Yes I am... and go to a chain...and the owner was on DWTS...and the pros are becoming very strong competitors on the national stage... and all of that... this contributes to higher prices... (and I'm dancing in one of the more affluent areas of Chicagoland)... but sometimes it's hard to remember all that...when I know that there are perfectly lovely studios within an hour of where I live...that I attend for parties and some groups sometimes... charging half as much for privates that last a lot longer.

That being said...again... My pro is the pro for me... and my buddy teacher (I finally have one!) is the perfect compliment to what I already have with pro... Could I dance someplace else? ABSOLUTELY! But I wouldn't be as solid a dancer as I am without my pro. Someday I'll have to take the skills he has taught me on to another place to learn...but we're not there yet. Smiley
