FAQ’s About Wedding Dance Lessons & More in Chattanooga, TN

WHAT TYPE OF CLASSES DO YOU OFFER?

We offer Group, Private, and “Pre-Classes” at Dances Lessons by Lenny in Chattanooga, TN.

WHAT ARE “PRE-CLASSES” AND WHY ARE THEY SO IMPORTANT?

Starting 15 minutes before the regular group class, the Pre-Class is both for beginners and experienced dance students. 

The “Pre-Class” is a FREE SERVICE provided by Dance Lessons by Lenny to get relative newcomers more familiar with the Basics, without taking up too much regular class time—and to remind the more experienced students of the steps they only think they’ve forgotten. The “Pre-Class” helps you to enjoy the regular class that much more because it facilitates your learning. If you’re willing to put in the extra time, then Lenny will as well. 

WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?

  • Group Classes are $10/hour per person. All Group Classes include a FREE “Pre-Class.”
  • Private Lessons are $40/hour for one to two people, and $10 for each additional person.
  • Wedding Lessons, or any “Special Occasion” Lessons are $60/hour per couple.

 Lenny may travel to you to make a house call. Additional rate TBD. 

WHAT'S BETTER FOR ME—GROUP CLASSES OR PRIVATE LESSONS?

  • Group Classes provide students with a series of sociable and lead-able step patterns and give students an opportunity to practice their lead and follow skills with different partners. Group Classes are ideal for new students learning the basics AND for experienced dancers who want to learn and be challenged by new and exciting patterns.  ***(No partner is required, as we usually rotate partners, or you may stick with the person you came in with for the entire lesson)***
  • Private Lessons provide the most personalized instruction, as they allow you to move at a pace that is most comfortable for you, be it faster or slower than Group Classes. In Private Lessons, you will have an opportunity to go deeper into the various technical aspects of Partnership Dancing, such as lead and follow, spins and turns, balance and connection—all designed to enhance your dancing. In Private Lessons you may also dance more with your instructor, who is trained to help you improve your Partnership skills.

PEOPLE HAVE ALWAYS TOLD ME THAT I CAN'T DANCE BECAUSE I HAVE TWO LEFT FEET. CAN I STILL LEARN TO DANCE?

Absolutely, YES. Anyone can learn to dance, especially if you’ve had no dance training! At Dance Lessons by Lenny, we work with beginners all the time to explain and demonstrate the steps in a way that is easy to follow and understand.

WHAT KIND OF DANCES SHOULD I LEARN? WHICH DANCE SHOULD I START OUT WITH?

One Main Rule: You should begin by learning to dance to the music you enjoy listening to—if you like the music you will be more apt to want to dance to it! 

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO LEARN TO DANCE?

That depends on you. Lenny has trained hundreds of people to dance better, and many were beginners with no dance knowledge or skills. The more you commit to following the lessons and practicing on your own, the faster you may meet your personal dancing goals.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO THE LESSONS?

Wear casual, comfortable clothing that allows you to move and turn easily. Ladies: Smooth-sole shoes with 1.5 to 2" heels and secure straps. Men: Any comfortable shoes with smooth soles are fine. No sneakers.

DO I NEED TO BRING A PARTNER TO TAKE LENNY'S LESSONS?

Singles and couples are welcome at Dance Lessons by Lenny. We rotate partners during the classes, as this is the best way to learn. We will accommodate couples who prefer not to rotate with other students.

DO I HAVE TO SIGN A CONTRACT?

No! You never sign a contract. All students pay cash on a per-lesson basis. Lessons are 50 minutes long and rates are very fair. Call Lenny to book your space in any class and get more details.
