For years, the main method of learning how to dance was to go to your local dance studio. But what if you don't want to drive (or fly) to a studio? Or maybe you just aren't comfortable taking a class with a large group of people. A viable alternative would be to take online dance lessons. Below you'll find 5 benefits of taking virtual dance classes.

1. You can learn at your own pace

Often times - especially when you are starting out - dance instructors just go too fast. Not everyone picks

up dance moves at the same speed, and some people just need more time to digest. When you take a dance class online, you have the power to decide how fast you learn. You can rewind, fast forward, and slow down the content at your discretion; some online dance providers even offer 360 degree viewing options

2. You'll save A LOT of money

Dance classes are expensive! Some studios can charge as high as up to $30 for just one class. Not to mention money you might have to spend on gas or public transportation to the studio. Most online dance lessons allow you to take as many classes as you want, for a monthly fee. If you are looking to learn to dance on a budget, then doing so online is definitely the way to go.

3. Getting to learning from teachers that are not normally accessible

This benefit caters strongly to anyone who doesn't live in either LA or NYC. Those two cities are home to the most sought after dance instructors, and makes it difficult for people that don't live there to learn from the best. Many online dance companies partner with professional choreographers in these cities and teach lessons online. Now why would you spend hundreds of dollars on travel costs, when you can learn from the best right from your living room?
