Types Of Ballroom Dance Teachers and their fees
There are many type of professionals in the world of ballroom dancing. That’s why there is a wide range when it comes to the cost of dance lessons.
1- Trainees: They are brand new instructors that have been in training for as early as a few weeks to a few months. These new “instructors” are individuals that a month ago had no knowledge of ballroom dancing, and suddenly become “dance instructors” just after a few weeks of training. The sad part is that the new students cannot notice the difference between a real professional and a trainee. The studio charges the same price as a professional, even if they know a lot less. You see, lots of dance studios use trainees to work for them and make them teach as early as a few weeks. The rational behind is that the sooner you start teaching, the better teacher you become. However, they are not qualified dance instructors because they lack the training and the experience to become a qualified dance instructor. They are good enough for brand new customers. PRICE TAG : $65 – $85
2- Semi-Pros: These are individuals that have a regular job, but teach on the side. They are usually former professionals or amateurs that had years of training, but choose to work in other fields. Although they are highly qualified, they might need to get in touch with the present aspect of dancing in case they stopped training years ago. PRICE TAG : $45 – $75
3- Professionals: This is the top category of dance instructor you want to hire. They are efficient, up to date with everything that has to do with dance curriculum. Some of them are former champions, have their own dance studios, and some still compete professionally. PRICE TAG : $75 – $125
4-The Coach: This is the highest level of pros in the dance industry. They’re usually former professional champions in their field. They also travel the whole country to judge competitions, and also to coach students. PRICE TAG : $125 – $400
Depending on your goal and your level of dance, if you just started learning ballroom dancing, you certainly won’t need to start with a coach. Sometimes, a trainee is all you need, but then you might get a real pro for the same price.
You probably say “That’s doesn’t make sense”
How can a trainee cost the same as a real pro?
A- the main reason is that, sometimes the trainee and the real pro look the same in the beginner eyes. They are too new to the dance world to see the difference.
B- Also, the studio owner, who is a real pro, might assign his/her trainee to you. More likely, you won’t notice anything wrong because you are a real beginner.
