Training focused directly on you

Private lessons are the fastest way to quickly and expertly improve your dancing.

In a typical group class setting, it’s impossible for the teacher to provide individual attention. If you’re struggling with details of a step, you often need to turn to private lessons.

Some people use private lessons to perfect a step or a favorite dance. You might need help dealing with a challenge that you’re struggling with. You may have missed a class and want to catch up on what was covered before the next class. Maybe you don’t understand some aspect of a step pattern. Perhaps you aren’t able to lead a step and want to understand what you’re missing. You might want to prepare for medal tests or competition. In some cases couples just feel that their movement isn’t in harmony and want a teacher to look at it and explain what’s missing.

Private instruction is also perfect when preparing for special dance situations such as a first dance at a wedding or an honor dance for an inauguration event.

Private lessons are perfect for:

  • Wedding dance
  • Lead/Follow training
  • Specific dances
  • Clarifying step patterns
  • Technical insights
  • Medal Tests
  • Competition training

Instructors George and Wendy Pytlik are available for private lessons. Private lessons usually take place at two ballroom locations in Vancouver because the Delta facilities do not currently have a structure for using the space in this way.

“Great dancers are great because of their passion.”
—Martha Graham

Available times are limited for George and Wendy, but other qualified instructors are also available. If George and Wendy’s schedules don’t work for you, they’ll be happy to direct you to another high-quality teacher.

Joint Lesson option

George and Wendy offer a unique option where couples can enjoy a joint training session with both members of the team for only a few dollars more than a lesson with George alone. This provides unique benefits where Wendy can address aspects such as presentation or the lady’s arm styling while George works with you on technical details as well as partnering and leading. The two are also known for their ability to assist competitive couples with performance and presentation skills.

Fees and locations

George charges $65 for a 55-minute lesson, which includes tax. Joint lessons with both George and Wendy cost $85 for a 55-minute lesson, tax included.

Lessons take place at one of three locations: the Crystal Ballroom, 145 – 11780 River Road in Richmond, Broadway Ballroom, 1050 West Broadway (near Oak), or Dance West, #3 – 12372 84th Ave in Surrey. Availability is limited, so please get in touch if you desire private lessons.
