- Rotating participants vs. Couples Only
- One or more Instuctors
- Your location or one of our centrally located spaces
- Length of Class

...and are priced accordingly, by the hour, instructor and location.

- Birthday, Anniversary, Bachelor/ette Parties
- Pre-wedding or Wedding Reception
- Corporate Events, Team Building, Extra-curricular activities
- Childrens' parties or School enrichment programs

Private Lessons
Great Focus for Singles, Partners and Wedding Preparation!

CUSTOM Private lessons, HELD AT YOUR LOCATION, are available at a premium (typically $250+/hr in Manhattan) in all styles and levels of dance with any of our professional staff. This intense, personalized attention gives you the opportunity to focus on mastering footwork, styling and technique. You may share your lessons with a partner (one leader, one follower) at no additional fee! These are especially recommended for our Wedding Couples, providing the perfect opportunity for them to focus on their First Dance.

It is cost prohibitive for Dance Manhattan to offer Private Lessons 'in studio' for a single or a couple in NYC. However, for 'in studio' Private lessons, we recommend:

One-Day Crash Courses and Intensives

Swing, Salsa, Balboa, Argentine Tango, West Coast Swing, Collegiate Shag, Ballroom

One-Day Crash Courses and Intensives are excellent options for dancers to concentrate on specific dance styles and techniques in a single day, over an extended period of time. Although sometimes held on weeknights they more often occur on weekends.

A One-Day Crash Course, pioneered at Dance Manhattan, is a marathon for Beginner Dancers. They are taught by a line-up of great instructors and require partners to rotate throughout the day.

CRASH courses typically meet from 2 to 4 hours. They offer an exciting and progressive introduction to the basics while providing new material for those with moderate experience who may come back month-after-month. These learn-in-a-day courses offer a great "taste" of dance at a very modest price.

One-day INTENSIVES for the more accomplished dancer are offered from time to time in Swing, Tango, Salsa, West Coast, Balboa, Collegiate Shag and Ballroom dances. These one-time workshops in a specific topic/dance are offered sporadically and the material and level vary.

If you are interested in a customized One-day Intensive, especially created for your group, please contact us at 212-807-0802 or by email at

For One-day Intensives that are open to the public, please check out the Special Interest box on our Home Page and our Event Calendar for details on dates/times/locations for a variety of intensives that we recommend and that are offered by our friends and colleagues!
