Dance Lessons

Private Lessons

The best way to accelerate your learning is through private lessons.  I will teach you the fundamentals of social or competitive dancing on an individual or group basis. 

I teach out of the following studios (also check Locations):

Dance Boulevard in San Jose
Starlite Ballroom Santa Clara** Add $5 to rate
Sunnyvale Community Center

Fee is $70** for a 45-minute lesson, $100 group class.  Gents, although I will teach you separately, I recommend you take lessons from a female teacher.  Talk to me about recommendations.

Special offer on private lessons: $650 for 10 lessons

Formation Teams

Formation team is a great way to get your feet wet if you want to start performing in ballroom dance.  You will learn ballroom patterns, and how group choreography works, while working in a team atmosphere.  It's great fun.  Check out our Formation Teams page for more information.

Solo Routines

Performing in a solo routine is another great way to really work on your dancing.  You will learn choreography to a particular song, and perform that dance at one of Bud's showcases, or elsewhere.  There's no better way to work on your technique than in a private lesson with a deadline!  

Wedding Dance

I help couples with their wedding dance.  It's a wonderful way to celebrate your love and the start of a new life together.
