    We had ours with Liz Nania at Out to Dance.  She was wonderful.  I think we paid about $350 for five one-hour sessions.  There are smaller and bigger packages, and there are also groups.

    We are going to Tempo Dance studio in Brighton.  There is a "wedding Survival Course" which is 5 1 hour classes for $85 per person.  They give you a discount on private lessons as well, in case you want to do more.  The class we are in right now is just us, no other couples, so it's fantastic!!  Gail is a sweetheart & very helpful.

    I totally second Liz Nania.  I took her years ago [before I met DH] for group lessons on East Coast Swing and ballroom.  DH and I took her for private lessons for our wedding. We already knew how to dance, but we wanted to learn some new swing moves.  Liz is fabulous. She's so nice and easy  to work with.

    What kind of lesson?  If you want a quick swing or salsa lesson, check out Ryles in Cambridge on Sat nights.  They have dancing upstairs and give a free 1 hr lesson w/ the price of admission.  It's a fun night out.  There are other places that do the same thing.  If you want other suggestions, let me know.

    We used Dance with Liz - she was amazing!  We were total beginners and she had such a great way of teaching us.  We would highly recommend her.

    Thanks ALF

    I meant a quick lesson for the wedding, so like fox trot and waltz... or whatever else you might do for a wedding!

    DH and I have taken lessons w/ Kari and he's great.  We didn't take the wedding class, but I still highly recommend this place.  It was a great studio and there was plenty of parking in Coolidge Corner.  Good luck!

    DH did our lessons at the same studio but with Anne as the instructor.  She was terrifically patient with us.  We started with the one complimentary lesson, liked it, and then signed up for six more.  People loved our first dance.  Truly, it is a testament to Anne's skills as an instructor.  We were totally clueless starting out!

    BTW -- we did a rhumba.  It's all in the hips, baby!
