Hello everyone, my name is Simone Mitchell. I am going to discuss the value of private lessons on this site. When I started dancing, I was too nervous to practice in front of my peers. I tried to block myself off in the corner, so I could practice my moves without anyone looking my way. My parents discussed my nervousness with the teacher of the group class and learned about private lessons. After a few months of private lessons, I really came out of my shell, which was good since I had to perform the moves in front of a crowd. I still go to private lessons to learn new techniques that make me feel awkward on my feet. I would like to explore the benefits of private lessons to help people understand the need for this type of instruction. Thank you for visiting.
