Our apologies, but due to an overwhelming demand and to provide lessons to hundreds of existing students, all private lessons are sold out for the next three months! Visit the "Contact US" and send us an email. We'll send your request on to other qualified and fun teachers.

However, I can't stress enough, if you want private lessons, a set of DVDs that really break down the movements, and allow you to see teacher's dance, is a must. We've got the best on the market, so join thousands of others, and get yourself the Beginner's 3 Pack!

Take Private Salsa Dance Lessons with SalsaCrazy!

Private Lessons are the quickest way to learn your basics or to improve your beginner or intermediate skills! If you want to learn how to dance in a reasonable amount of time, privates will get you there faster. When combined with group classes, private lessons can get you dancing very quickly. It's important to do BOTH private lessons and group classes. Neither one, done in isolation, offers the greatest benefit. You will get an enormous amount out of each and every private that you take, and the benefits will really help your dancing. They are certain things that are just not covered in group classes - and you need privates to just work on you.

Private Lessons cost $100 and they take place on many nights of the week, and at locations throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The cost is for one or two people. For each additional person after that, please add $35.

When taking your private lessons with SalsaCrazy, all your questions (where to go dancing, who to take classes from, etc.) get answered! You'll be able to ask any question you may have, and get other benefits (such as clubs passes), directly from your teachers. I can't stress enough how important private lessons are to your growth as salsa dancers! It's important to work on yourself, and your unique skills, in a private setting.

What You'll Be Getting

Everything you need to feel confident on the dance floor. The goal in these classes is to get people to a point where they can have a good time - able to dance with anyone, at any time, to any music.

We cover a lot of basic structure and technique - centering on the details and fundamental lessons of salsa dancing (and partner dancing)! Why details? The faster you get to a point where you understand the basic techniques and fundamental structure of the dance, the faster you can develop your own style. The goal is to be able to go out there and have fun with anyone on the dance floor.

Style: Expressing Yourself Through the Music

We can certainly teach you our style and even someone else's style. However, the goal is to get people to a point where they can develop their own style. Style is a form of expression that comes from you. Deep inside! The goal is to get you to a place where your individual style comes out and looks good! This doesn't happen overnight. In fact, to be honest, it can take years. However, from these lessons you will learn all the skills necessary to build and grow yourself as a dancer and you'll have a great time along the way!

Private Lessons FAQ

Do I really need private lessons?

I recommend everyone start with at least one group session! Yes, you heard that right. If you want the greatest benefit, you do not need to take a private to start dancing. Take a group class first, and start learning some of the basics and the fundamentals. That way, you'll get far more out of your private lessons. Don't substitute privates for group classes! They work best together rather than individually. You'll want to take your first private within your first 2 months of dancing (before bad habits have a chance to develop).

How much, and how long, are Private Lessons?

Privates start at $100 and last for 55 minutes to one hour. You can sign up for lessons, right on this page, by clicking the "Buy Now" buttons.

Where to Private Lessons Take Place?

Either in our current dance studios, or at your home (+$20), you can schedule a lesson anytime.

What is Salsa, why do I want to learn it?

Salsa is the ultimate partner dance! Great clubs, great people, and great music. It's exciting, inspiring, and creative.

How do I choose a teacher? How do I know which teacher is best for what I want?

All of our teachers are excellent, and you can't really go wrong no matter whom you choose! In addition, we offer special introductory rates, so if you want to try a variety of our teachers, you can do so at a reduced price, to find just the right teacher for you!

What is the SalsaCrazy Boot Camp(TM)?

If you want to learn and you haven't got time to spare, you'll follow SalsaCrazy's basic "Salsa Boot Camp" Schedule. No, this is not an actual program we offer, but rather, it's the process by which I find students obtain the most benefit. It's a philosophy and a proven method by which people progress the fastest. Use it as a guideline!

2 Privates a Week, 3 Group Classes a Week, 3 Nights of Social Dancing Each Week, 3 Hours Mirror Practice Each Week


What are the benefits of learning to dance?

There are almost too many to mention! The following lists some important reasons why you should give it a try.

Incredible Social Benefits: Meet tons of people! Far more than you could in any other medium. Ask anyone who has tried it. The social benefits, for both men and women, are second to none.

It will aid you in life: in way's you can't possibly imagine before trying it. You become better at work, more focused, more fulfilled, and far more self confident! You'll carry yourself in an entirely different way.

Get a workout: You'll get in great shape, increasing coordination and flexibility.

Connection with other people, community: For many, Salsa Dancing will get you in touch with a fantastic, diverse and fun group of people, and it allows you to form a connection with another person (while dancing) that is rare in today's society. It's called partner dancing for a reason, and there is nothing quite like having a dance, with someone you've just met (or you've known for years), which allows you to share such happiness and joy. Being one with the music!

More fun than you've ever had: That's quite a lofty benefit, but for many, they find that Salsa Dancing is just the element that has been missing from their lives. No single type of dance is for everyone, but Salsa is a lot of fun.

There are so many other reasons. Hopefully we've provided enough reasons to at least have you take the first step.
