Offered seven days a week by appointment, private lessons are a great way to prepare for a special event or get a technique tune up. Your private lesson material will be based on your individual requests, and your instructor will move at a pace that is comfortable for you.

Big City Swing offers two levels of instructors, Resident and Senior, based on the years of teaching experience.  In all cases, our instructors have the talent, patience, and sense of humor to guide you towards your dancing goals.

Please note, all reservations require a credit card (MC, Visa or Discover) on file or a pre-paid package.  Once we’ve set up your student profile with cc o-file, scheduling your next lesson is just a click away.
