Private lessons are available with all of our instructors at an additional cost. All private lessons are “couples only” at the rate of $145 per teacher per session. (Private lessons in technique and arm styling may be available for individuals. Be sure to check.) Each session is 45 minutes. All private lessons are taught during lunch breaks (1pm-2:30 pm) and in the evening after the last group class from 6:30 pm-10:15 pm. There are no refunds for the cancellation of private lessons. Please call 800-851-2813 to reserve your private lessons.

Dance Camp Las Vegas DVD

This DVD will contain steps taught by the instructors for the dance camp. It will contain every level of each class. This does NOT include the Professional Teacher Camp, How To Get Certified Camp, or the After Hours Camp. The complete set is only $199 and MUST be purchased before the end of the camp. Please keep in mind that this DVD is not the same quality as the DVD in our Dance Vision catalog.

Ballroom Dress Code

Wear comfortable dance shoes and practice clothes for all group classes and private lessons. The Welcome Reception is casual dress and the Thursday night Grand Banquet is semi-formal requiring business suits for the men and cocktail dresses for the ladies. If you are dancing the student routines at the Banquet, flared skirts work best for the ladies and a dress shirt and tie is suitable for the gentlemen.

Practice Room

We reserve one practice room in the evening, Monday thru Wednesday from 6:30pm – 11pm.

Video/Digital Cameras

No taping/recording of group classes or the Grand Banquet Super Star Show is allowed. You may videotape your private lessons.

Can I arrive at the hotel before camp starts or leave later?

Yes, based on room availability. (Prices Subject to Change)
Weekday - $69 a night (tax included).
Weekend - $111 a night (tax included).

Can you get me a roommate?

Sorry, we can not. We have tried this in the past, and it was not very successful. It is very difficult to share a room with someone you do not know.
