Private Lesson Level Evaluation

Let's get you into the right class

Many students at Big City Swing join our classes from a variety of backgrounds. If you are uncertain which level is best for you or wish to skip a variety of pre-requisite classes, a private lessons evaluation session will help match your skills and goals with our classes.

During the evaluation lesson, your instructor will ask you about your previous experience, offer helpful technique pointers, cover as much curriculum material as possible, and recommend the best Big City Swing group class for you.

Evaluations are available to new students and are scheduled as 55-minute private lessons. The cost is $65 with a resident instructor and $75 with a senior instructor. At the end of the private lesson, the instructor will suggest the best classes for you, and you’ll receive a $20 tuition credit to your account towards those group class(es).

The evaluation lessons are subject to the same 24-hour cancellation and rescheduling policies of our regular private lessons. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our policies as they are strictly followed. In addition, a credit card number or pre-payment is required to reserve your evaluation lesson.

Three ways to schedule:

  1. Email us with your questions, background, and desired level.
  2. Call with that info, 312.243.0700
  3. Expedite scheduling via our student portal.

We look forward to meeting and dancing with you!

I loved the ease of signing up (on line) the reasonable price ($130 per couple for 4 classes) and the terrific instructors (Bob and Audra). I also liked the way they teach the class which has you rotating partners all night to get you used to dancing with others although if you really want to stay with your significant other, they will accommodate that as well.
