Private Lessons

For those new to the tango, private lessons can be an excellent way to get comfortable with the fundamentals of tango before you join a group lesson or begin dancing tango socially. For those with a little more tango experience, private lessons can be an excellent way to work on specific problem areas or to make sure that bad habits are recognized and stopped before they become ingrained. And for those more intermediate/advanced dancers, private lessons can be an excellent way to further refine your tango and develop your performance skills. Private lessons are also an excellent way to create a wedding choreography -- tango is the dance of love, after all, so it is the perfect dance for your wedding dance!


Private lessons run for one hour. We charge per lesson, per hour, and have only three rules:

  1. Cancellations must be made with at least 24 hours notice. If you cancel the day of your lesson, you are responsible for a $25 cancellation fee (this includes the rental fee of the studio). You never pay for the studio rental that is included with your lesson except in the case of a cancellation with less than 24 hours notice.

  2. Every minute you are late cuts into your hour of private instruction. Your hour begins at the time that it is scheduled, not at the time you arrive. So don't be late!!!

  3. Payments for private lessons must be made in advance of class (either online, below, or over the phone with a credit card). Private lesson appointments will not be made without pre-payment; the only exception to this is if you have made prior arrangements with the instructor.

Private lessons are $85 an hour or you may purchase a package of 10 private tango classes for $750, a $100 savings. Call Donna at 916 443-7008 to schedule private lessons or e-mail her by clicking here.
