Ballroom dancing is an exciting, challenging, and rewarding hobby for individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. However, not everyone has a nearby dance studio where they can take lessons. Also, not everyone is interested in taking in-person dance lessons for any number of reasons, not the least of which might be COVID-19.
While Love.Live.Dance is a premier dance studio with a physical presence in Morgantown, West Virginia, we are excited to offer lessons to students around the world through our online dance lessons. Our online dance lessons cover the same topics as our in-studio lessons, but students can participate from the comfort of their own home! Our dance lessons take place over video-chat so you can learn and respond in real-time.
Online lessons are great for ongoing ballroom dance lessons, wedding dance lessons, private group classes, and even competitive dancesport lessons. They're especially great for couples looking for a great date-night idea that doesn't require leaving the house!
Lessons can be scheduled online through our scheduling portal and are available via Zoom, Skype, and most other meeting platforms upon request.
Lessons can be scheduled through our online booking system, which is available 24-hours a day. Our booking system reflects the studio's current availability, hours of operation, and available staff member. If multiple staff members are available, don't stress about picking an instructor. All of our instructors are trained to work with you through your first lesson, and they will match you with the right expert for subsequent lessons.
This answer depends on the dance style that you are interested in, but lessons for beginners generally only require a few square feet. Moving a coffee table in your living room (or a similarly sized space) is almost certainly sufficient to get started dancing.
Online lessons require an internet-connected device that can run Zoom with both audio and video. Beyond that, nothing is required!
While students are not prohibitted from recording online lessons, if you ask during the lesson, we will record the lesson and provide a recording afterwards. As a result, manually recording the lesson shouldn't be necessary.
When booking a lesson, you will be asked to leave any comments for your instructor. If you request a particular dance style, goal or song (in the case of a wedding), we will shape your first lesson with that in mind. Otherwise, we will assume that your first online lesson is a beginner-level lesson, and we will come prepared to teach you several basic dance steps in some easier dance styles. From there, however, we can branch out into other dance styles that you might be interested in. For wedding lessons, we will work you to choreograph a dance to your selected wedding song that you can confidently perform at your wedding.
Payment information is required to schedule a lesson, but you will not be charged until the time of the lesson.
While we do not offer refunds for online lessons, we offer flexible rescheduling options if you discover that you have a conflict at the time that you initially scheduled.
Maybe! All of our students take dance lessons for different reasons. Some of our students are competitive dancers that practice regularly while others simply enjoy setting aside the time to dance with their significant other. As a result, the time that you need to put in between lessons is entirely up to you and your goals. Having said that, practicing between lessons is certainly the best way to get the most value from your lessons, and that's why we make recordings of each lesson available. While we will always take the time to explain any topics that you might not remember from previous lessons, practicing between lessons will ensure that we keep making progress.
This is a question better answered once we have had a chance to talk about your goals and why you're taking dance lessons. As a result, we don't require any long-term contracts or commitments when scheduling your first lesson. While we have package rates and monthly memberships available for individuals interested in taking multiple lessons, we feel that it would be unfair to our students to suggest those options until our students have had a chance to take their first lesson and decide whether our online lessons are right for them.
Of Course! Our studio can be reached at 304-449-4030 for both in-person and online lessons during our standard business hours. If you have any questions regarding our lessons, what you should expect to learn, or how we can work with you to achieve your goals, always feel free to contact us.
Clicking below will take you to our online appointment portal where you can view all of our available times and schedule your first lesson online at your convenience. You will not be charged for any package or membership selections until your first lesson. Prefer to talk to a person? Feel free to call us at 304-449-4030 to discuss our lessons, prices, and availability.
Online ballroom dance lessons come with special challenges, but we tackle those challenges head-on. Love.Live.Dance uses quality audio and video equipment to make sure that our lesson quality is top-notch. We also support our students and the dance industry through a weekly ballroom dance podcast and live-stream which is also available through our Love.Live.Dance Youtube channel .
My husband and I had an excellent experience working with Samantha. We took four dance lessons with her before our wedding. She took the time to listen to our song choice and come up with wonderful steps to go with it. As beginners, some of the moves were difficult to get down, but Samantha was an excellent teacher and helped us through the challenging parts of our dance. She was extremely patient with us! We had so much fun learning & executing our dance and we got a lot of compliments from guests at our wedding. Thanks, again! -Kerry & Mike
Samantha our instructor for my daughters wedding was fantastic. She made the steps easy and fun. We couldn’t wait each time to go back and learn more. We will be hiring her again in the future for more lessons. Love this place.
We had fun, while learning great steps in a very short time. Samantha is a great teacher!!! We will come back in the summer
