Shared  Private Lessons

My husband and I are social dancers.  I would like to really improve my dancing skills without spending a fortune but find that it is an almost impossible task to achieve the way private lessons are offered by the established ballrooms.

I have decided to finally do something about it. I am looking to get together an exclusive group of like-minded ladies to see how we can help each other secure private lessons from the professional Dance Instructors on a more sustainable basis.


Professional Dance Instructors charge $100 an hour. I am trying to split 

the hour with another lady so I can have a half hour lesson every week 

without breaking my bank account.

The half hour is exclusively yours - You can learn whatever dance you want, do it alone or with a partner.  You can opt to do it weekly and enjoy 

a 10% discount if you pay upfront ( $180 - $45 for each 4 half-hour 

lessons ) or once every other week and pay $50 each time.

Dance Instructors

I have danced socially with many professional Dance Instructors including among others, Lance Sexton, Primo Garcia, Barry Johnson, RJ Crandall, Wade Branham and Brian Oakes.  


You, alone or with your partner, gets a 30-minute Private Lesson plus  

6  dances of your choice with your Instructor for just $45.  It is the BEST VALUE package for any lady wishing to really improve her dancing 

prowess quickly and cost-effectively !!!

You will need to prepay $450 for 10 combo sessions to be held every 

other Wednesday evening in order to enjoy being danced hosted for 

FREE during the Practice Parties that follow your Private Lessons.   Any

refund requested for unused combo sessions will be net of costs ( $25 

for each Practice Party ) incurred for being danced hosted.

If you are not planning to showcase or compete in the near term, Wade is probably the best Dance Instructor for you as you will enjoy taking lessons or dancing 

with him without 

being unduly stressed.

The above combo deal is not available elsewhere and possible only because the private lessons and practice parties that follow are hosted 

at my place and I am just looking to share cost of hiring the PRO Dance Instructor !!!


I am retired so sharing private lessons with me can be done at any time

the Dance Instructor is available.  I have initially scheduled them for Wednesdays between 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  

If you are relatively

new to dancing, or

want to really enjoy

learning how to dance

socially and have fun,

Barry is the dance instructor for you.

In keeping with my endeavor to have a Dance Social Club, please feel free 

to join in the pre-lesson Potluck Dinner and post-lesson Practice Dance.

                      6:00 pm - 7:00 pm    Potluck Dinner

                      7:00 pm - 8:00 pm    Two  30-minute Private Lessons

                      8:00 pm - 9:00 om    Practice Dance

Below is a video of my husband, Tom and me, in our old home dance studio, practicing a Rumba routine we had just learned from Primo Garcia in a group class when we first started dancing.   

I haven't taken any lessons from Brian yet but hope to do so as I can tell by watching him on the floor and dancing with him that he would be great for those wanting to dance better than just socially.

Lance is without 

question the Dance 

Instructor you want if 

you intend to compete 

and WIN as many of his private students have done that consistently over the years.

We just renovated our place and took the opportunity to pull out the whole rear of our house to build ourselves a "ballroom" ... 31' long by 11' wide with a 12' floor to ceiling wall mirror and a chandelier.   Adjacent to it on  one side is the sitting area with a wet bar and food counter and a bathroom on the other side.  The ballroom opens into a 30' X 9' open rear screen porch for those wanting a break from dancing.

What our ballroom lacks in size it makes up in other ways ... You get to have potluck dinner, choice of couple tables at the corners of the dance floor itself or in the sitting area at 2 small group tables for socializing, control of lighting and sound volume of music.  You will no longer have

dark videos where you can barely be seen !!

We want everyone to enjoy themselves and will be restricting attendance

to a dozen people as our driveway can only park 4 cars and another 4 cars can park on the curbside in front of the house.  We live in the Six Mile Creek sub-division in Viera, just 2 miles north of Brevard Zoo off Murrell Road.

I could approach any of them to be dance instructors for private lessons depending on their availability.  Lance and Primo are probably the instructors who would be the hardest to schedule.   I would also be happy

to consider other instructors of your choice.

Dozens of videos featuring both Ballroom and Latin dances are hosted.  

Just scroll down the menu on your left and click on whichever dance instructors, ballrooms, showcases and competitions you feel like 

checking out.

FREE  Video  Snippet

I will take 30-second long video snippet of you dancing with the Dance Instructor during your private lesson and post it onto your Facebook timeline 

as our thank you for your support.   We may also selectively host a complete video of your routine onto our video website to enable you to share your passion for dance with family & friends, near & far.

Call  to  Action

Ladies keen to really improve their dancing skills should contact me to share their inputs as to how best we can help one another achieve our goal of

becoming better dancers by leveraging our dancing dollars.  Sharing private lessons and being dance hosted during the Practice Dance that follows is 

a very cost effective way of doing just that.

Maybe we could, quarterly, go as a small group on an occasional Dance Outing to some fancy ballroom over in Orlando or Tampa or wherever and 

have ourselves an exciting field trip ... We could even hire ourselves a PRO Instructor to dance with us !!!
