+ Private/Semi-Private Lessons
Move With Grace offers private and semi-private lessons at Triangle Dance Studios in Durham, Danceformation, Inc. in Cary, Loafers Beach Club in Raleigh, or a location of your preference.
Private lessons are the most individualized and in-depth method of instruction Move With Grace offers. Because the student or couple is working one-on-one with the instructor, the instructor is able to provide individually-tailored instruction and recommendations designed to give the student or couple the maximum benefit for the 55-minute lesson. If you are looking to quickly improve your dancing, then private lessons may be for you!
Private lessons are $85 per person/couple for single lessons, $410 for a package of 5 lessons, $799 for a package of 10 lessons, or $1499 for a package of 20 lessons. Lessons are 55 minutes long.
Semi-private lessons are designed to give students the benefit of more individualized instruction while also creating a fun social atmosphere. These lessons are intended for groups of 3-6 people. Semi-private lessons are the perfect fusion between group and private lessons, so grab a couple friends and give it a try!
Semi-private lessons are $85 for the first two people plus $10 per each additional person, up to 8 people, for each 55-minute lesson.

+ Group Classes
Group classes are vital to expanding your horizons whether you are a social or competitive dancer.

For the social dancer, group classes are the first stepping stone on the way to success on the social dance floor. For the competitive dancer, group classes afford the opportunity to meet potential competitive partners, practice leading and following, and perfect technique in preparation for the next competition.
