Parties have their place, but even more productive is to ask someone from a group class to meet up some other weeknight or before or after the class and practice together. That is to a potential partnership what "going for coffee" is to a non-dance relationship.
If that goes well (or if you feel like going right for it) then you can share a private lesson. Its fairly customary to split the cost evenly.
