private lessons

Book a one-on-one session with a CTS teacher to catch up on missed classes or to learn at your own pace.

Private lessons are available for individuals, couples or groups:

  • to learn the basics at your own pace;
  • to catch up if you miss classes;
  • to get comfortable dancing with your partner for your wedding or special event;
  • to polish a routine;
  • or to warm up the dance floor at a work function...

Our private lessons are offered by Cape Town Swing's teaching team, including our Senior Teachers, Teachers and Junior Teachers.

  • The client is to provide the space. For a private lesson, a cleared home space of 3x3 metres suffices. Alternatively, a studio space can be hired at additional cost.
  • Travel of more than 5 km from the teacher's home base will be charged at R5/km.
  • Cancellations may be made up to 24 hours before the lesson, and rescheduled at no extra cost. If a client cancels a class less than 24 hours before a lesson, they will be charged for the class.
  • Rates are subject to change without prior notice.
