Types of Dance Lessons
To best serve our students, Stepping Out Studios offers dance instruction through a variety of structured lessons, detailed in the tabs below. You may always call us at 646-742-9400 to ask our friendly staff about any questions you may have about our dance instruction. You may first want to consult our Frequently Asked Questions, as well as our Studio Policies.
Group classes run in four-week (sometimes eight-week) long, progressive “courses” which are designed to teach steps from a standard syllabus. Because these courses are progressive, we recommend that students only join a course in the first or second week. The classes meet once a week, for an hour.
Students rotate partners through the course of an hour-long class, as changing partners ultimately develops better partner dancing skills. Rotating partners also helps provide all students in the class with opportunities to dance, practice what is being taught in the class, and meet new people.

Private lessons are a wonderful way to receive personalized attention and fast-track your learning curve. Lessons may be taken by one or two persons with the instructor. (For more than three people on the same lesson, please ask about our Semi-Private Lessons and rates.) Lessons are 55 minutes long, and 24-hours notice is required to change or cancel all private lessons to avoid a full charge. Please be sure to review our private lesson policies.
Our Program Advisor, Anthony Thomas (or any of our Front Desk staff), can help guide you in selecting an instructor best suited to your needs and goals. Anthony may be contacted at email@example.com, or 646-742-9400.

Workshops are occasional master classes which focus on particular dance elements — technique, partnering skills, particular types of step patterns, musicality, options to add style to a dance, etc. They may be geared for absolute beginners wanting an intensive introduction to partner dance, or toward social dancers looking for new ways to enjoy their dancing, or toward advanced dancers looking for a competitive edge. Stepping Out also offers performance classes for those looking to set goals for their dancing and have a chance to prepare and perform a group piece, a great way to develop closer relationships with your fellow students. Our instructors develop workshops specifically geared toward our student body’s interests and skill levels.
If you’ve always dreamed of partner dancing or ballroom dancing or are looking to dive into learning a new style, we’ve created a special NEW workshop category, Crash Courses! These feature just the right combination of instructors, curriculum, and atmosphere for the first-time dancer or those learning a new style for the first time, with an emphasis on giving you the skills and confidence to get you out onto the dance floor right away. Classes are for adults only.
