I would like to book a private dance lesson, what shall I do?
and write what dance style you are interested in and what are your dance skills - are you a beginner or are you interested to book a dance lesson at a higher level (Improvers, Intermediate, Advanced). Write if you want to take one or several lessons (i.e. a package of several dance lessons); if you come by yourself or with a dance partner and if you have your own place for dance (at home, your own studio etc) or need help with booking a dance studio. We will come back to you with more accurate price suggestions and names of available instructors. Private lessons cost from 600 SEK per hour.
How do I pay?
I am a student, can I get a discount?
Most of Dansarna.se courses are discounted for students. Read the details in the course description. You must be able to present a valid student ID at the first class to receive the discount. Enter STUDENT as the booking discount code when registering.
I was put on waiting-list. What does that mean?
You can be placed are on waiting list for a number of reasons. 1. The minimum number of participants has not been reached, 2. You do not meet age restriction. 3. If it is a partner dance and there is an unbalance between leader & follower, 4. You have not paid another course after being reminded, 5. The maximum number of participants has been reached and the course is full.
Once requirements are fulfilled you will automatically be moved from waiting-list to approved. At that time all discounts will be calculated and you will get another email with information about acceptance and payment.
Contact your instructor if you need more information.
Can I get a receipt?
My course/event was cancelled. What happens now?
Do I have to register as a couple?
No, registration to our partner-dance courses and events can be as a leader, follower or pair. We balance the course/event between leaders and followers in turn. However, if you register as a pair you will be accepted as a couple and do not have to be on a waiting list.
We signed-up as a couple. Do we have to dance with others on the course?
Note! During Corona times we do not rotate during a class. Under normal circumstances, we strongly recommend all participants on our pair-dance courses to be part of the rotation we make during our classes. This will help you to learn more quickly and prepare you for social dancing. If there are special requests for not rotating we will take it into consideration and explain to the group.
Is it possible to try a class before registering to a complete course?
We offer the possibility to try our dance and rhythm classes at a free "Open House" dance-day before each semester. If you can not attend this free dance-day contact the instructors of the course you are interested in to inquire about your any possibility of trying a class before registering. Note that if the course is full or if there is an imbalance between leaders and followers you may not be offered a place on the course. If you choose not to register to the course you need to pay for the class you attended.
Are the Dansarna.se socials and practice for everyone or just Dansarna.se students?
They are for everyone. Welcome!
What language is used by the instructor?
All our instructors speak Swedish and/or English. Courses and events with students not speaking Swedish will be held in English. If the instructor does not speak Swedish the course/event will be held in English.
Is it possible to change course if I discover it is on the wrong level?
We try to accomodate requests for change of course but it is not always possible depending on the number of participants and balance between leaders and followers. You should carefully read the course and level descriptions before registering and if you are unsure about levels please contact the instructors for the courses you are interested in.
I can not attend all classes in the course. Can I get a refund?
No, you registered for a full course and you place can not be re-sold to someone else.
I missed the first class of the course. Am I totally lost now?
Absolutely not. We always repeat the steps and moves we teach and you can always ask the instructors for some extra help/tips.
