Our Classes

Dance Classes and More

Dance Spot of DuPage offers a wide variety of dance classes welcoming dancers at any level. Choose from private or semi-private classes, group lessons, workshops, and wedding dance choreography. 


Private Lessons 

Private lessons are personalized to meet anyone’s needs, skills, and interests. For the beginner, this is the fastest way to learn, gain confidence, and fall in love with dancing. For those who have danced before, private lessons provide the opportunity to improve technique, posture, style, and add new dances to your repertoire! Private lessons can be designed for either a single person or a couple.


Semi-Private Lessons

If you and a group of friends would like to take dance lessons together, semi-private lessons might be perfect for you. Semi-privates are not open to the public; they will only be for you and your friends to learn the dance or dances of your choice. These lessons are designed for up to 6 people. 


Group Classes

Group lessons are an excellent way to start learning or to advance your skills in ballroom, social, or Latin dancing. They can also provide an opportunity for you to practice what you are learning in your private lessons. We offer classes for beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. No partner is needed to participate in a group class. 


Adult Ballet (Generally, two Mondays per month)

This class is perfect for ballroom dancers who wish to improve their posture and core, and 

build the necessary body awareness and muscles for dancing.  


Wedding Dance Lessons

Our special Wedding dance packages can make your dreams about your first dance come true. Let us choreograph that first dance and help you have a memory that will last forever.  We can also provide lessons for the wedding party, parents of the couple, a very special father/daughter or mother/son dance. Our Wedding Dance lessons come in a variety of packages, all of which start with a free, 30-minute consultation.
