Individual tuition for 1 to 4 people learning with an instructor can give you a personalised route to improve your dancing. Book yourself a private jive, lindy hop or swing dance lesson today!
Lessons are available live online via Zoom to customers in any location. Face to face lessons is possible in Hampshire, Surrey and Dorset, UK. It may be possible to visit a teacher in their location, or they could come to you. If neither of these options is possible then we can even arrange venue hire.
"Dear Debbie and The Swing Dance Company,
Thanks for the lessons we received prior to our wedding in August. We had a lot of fun and learned some great moves to piece together the first dance and then help us dance the night away! It really surpassed our expectations and we had so much fun!! We would have been so hopeless without the guidance and expertise of Debbie! Thanks for contributing to a really important part of our day!" Stratton & Hannah
Whatever your situation we are ready to help. Individual tuition (also known as private tuition) is booked for a variety of reasons. We've helped so many people, whether preparing for a special event, a wedding dance, starting a new hobby, even extra help for a lapsed dancer getting back in the swing. We've even been asked to provide a fun hour for friends before dinner.
“Elena is a very good teacher and a lovely person and I am progressing well and above all enjoying the experience of private lessons with her. I attended a large family wedding on Saturday and jived 'til after midnight. I am having a great time and enjoy it immensely. Looking forward to next Tuesday evening.” John W, Fareham
Individual tuition is available in your own location or you can visit an instructor in their home. The session will be tailored to your needs. Our friendly and experienced teachers give constructive tuition and advice, helping to take your dancing to the next level.
Teachers are prepared with music and portable sound system, wearing their Swing Dance Company t-shirt. For their security, our staff log in to head office before and after each booking.

How Many People?
We can accommodate individuals or couples when you visit our teachers. If our teachers travel to your location then groups can be up to 4 people. The fee is for the teacher's time so larger groups can help spread the cost but the instructor's attention will be more thinly spread.
How long for a session?
There is a minimum booking of 1 hour, but no maximum length of booking. Most people find 1 hour optimal for learning. Those looking for intensive improvements can book several hours in a day.
Tuition fees start from £45 per hour per instructor for weekday daytime from the instructors own home. Each of the following charges is in addition and cumulative, simply add;
- £10 per booking when the instructor travels to your location within their specified area
- £5 per hour for evenings (starting at 5pm or later)
- £5 per hour for weekends (Sat or Sun)
- £100 for us to arrange and hire a neutral venue (if neither instructor nor student can host)
So the least expensive option is £45/hr to visit an instructor at their home on a weekday daytime. Watch out for special offers publicised through our mailing list and social networking pages!
