Private Dance Lessons in Tucson, AZ


We offer private dance instruction to all ages and abilities in all styles of dance.

While most dance instruction is offered in a group setting, the Music & Dance Academy believes that everybody can benefit from personalized, one-on-one instruction. private dance lessons provide students with training in a manner that best suits their learning style.

With private lessons, the student receives the full attention of the instructor, ensuring a sound foundation in technique, form, and performance values. If a student has a particular difficulty in one area, the teacher can work on it without hampering the progress of a class of students and alternatively, if a student is excelling in one area, the teacher can move on.

Our dance teachers have university training in the styles that they teach. We teach students from beginners to advanced.
Note: Lesson times are on a first-come, first-served basis.
