Frequently Asked Questions

How Much do Lessons Cost?

I offer flexible class packages are tailored to your schedule and dancing dreams. This allows me to prefer to talk to my students about their goals and needs. Contact Robin! to get started.

 

Standard Terms and Cancellation Policy

Cancellations may be made with 24 hours notice or by prior arrangement with Robin. Missed classes without prior cancellation may result in the booked class being billed as if the class had taken place.

All prices quoted are “introductory prices” and may change at any time without notice. These terms and conditions may change at any time, without notice.   Back to top


Can Couples Take Lessons?
Lessons can be arranged for Singles or Couples. Often Couples get individual lessons and then couples coaching to help them dance perfectly together.  Singles lessons are available for both Men and Women. Pricing is the same whether Robin teaches a couple or an individual. You are paying for Robin’s time, not on a per person basis.   Back to top


How Long Are The Lessons?
Lessons are normally 45 minutes in length.  Double lessons can be arranged if desired. Please note, if you are late arriving, your time will be shortened as Robin considers it inconsiderate for other students to have their lessons delayed.   Back to top


What Do I Do To Get Started?
Contact Robin! Please Note, Robin is often teaching and can’t answer the phone during lessons. Leave a message and she will call you back as soon as she is able!   Back to top


What Times Are Available?
Robin’s schedule changes almost daily as new students start and others move on. See her teaching schedule for more information and to arrange a specific time schedule for you.   Back to top


Where Are The Lessons Taught?
I teach in different locations in the San Jose and South Bay areas. Prior to this, I was at the Dance Spectrum for over 24 years. I “moved” to Dance Boulevard when the building Dance Spectrum occupied was sold for redevelopment.


How Do I Dress for Lessons?
Experienced Students will know their own dress requirements.

For New Students, you should wear comfortable clothes that will allow for full movement including raising your arms and taking full steps forward, backward and sideways.  Shoes should be comfortable.  Women just starting might not want to wears heals yet and until they get use to getting their feet out of the way, women should wear closed toe shoes as there will be inevitable stepping on toes at first.  Trust me, you will learn quickly how to keep your feet out of harm’s way.   Back to top


What if I can’t Make a Lesson?
Because Robin blocks time for her students, she requires a 24 hour notice of cancellation. Robin makes every effort to be fair to all her students and classes start on time. If a student is late, she cannot continue into another students time in order to teach a full lesson.   Back to top

How Often Should I Take Lessons?
This is a very individual thing.  If there is no time frame involved and you are just learning dance for your own pleasure, you should consider weekly lessons. This will give you time to practice each week. If you would like to progress faster, 2 or more lessons a week are often a good choice. If you are preparing for a wedding or another event we can tailor your lessons to meet your needs.   Back to top


What About Practice?
Practice, Practice, Practice. If you want the most from your lessons, you need to practice between lessons. You can do this on your own or with a partner, at your home or at the studio. In any case, it is a very important part of the process.   Back to top
