Dance Studios offer a variety of dance styles in either group or private lessons. Some dance studios choose to specialize exclusively in Latin American dances such as the mambo, cha-cha-cha, rumba, salsa, merengue, samba. Others may teach only classical dances like waltz and tango. And some studios offer belly dance, club dance, Irish dance and other dance styles. Majority of people take group lessons as a least expensive option. Lessons offered are from Beginner to Intermediate to Advanced. Dance Schools / Academies are institutions specializing in a particular dance style such as for example Ballet (this is for kids mostly). Those are professional institutions that provide a curriculum and programs just like a regular school or college. There are also many non-profit Organizations featured on our site that offer dance classes in your area.
