    Marge was absolutely wonderful as my dance teacher. She choreographed our first dance for my wedding. She made sure that we liked all the steps she taught us and made sure that we were doing it correctly and everything looked good and elegant. She was also very open to changing the choreography if we did not feel 100% comfortable with it. She was very constructive with the criticism, which I truly appreciate. Her home dance studio is wonderful and inviting.

    I haven't had a lesson yet, but the experience chatting with her has been great so far.

    Thank you anonymous! I'm looking forward to our first lesson. I believe that dance is a life long healthy hobby that never gets old or boring. And always fun!

About this pro

Fascinating Rhythm Dance School was founded in 1977 and offers private lessons in all the Ballroom and Latin dances. I have devolved my own unique method of teaching developed from over 20 years of experience. I emphasize style and technique and having fun! The most popular dances now are Salsa and Swing, but Tango and Foxtrot are close behind. But we teach Waltz, Cha cha, Hustle, Rumba, Merengue, Country Western, and more. We also specialize in choreography for the most important "first dance" at your wedding. For weddings, choreography is an additional one time fee of $25 extra. Our lessons are a full sixty minute hour and are totally private!! A package of four hours is only $180, same price for 1 or 2 people. From the moment you step onto the dance floor you will move with poise, confidence, and a smile. If getting married, we promise to make your first dance memorable, even if you have two left feet! It is the most rewarding experience for me to see people's lives change through learning how to dance. The shy, introverted come out of their shell and the outgoing have an outlet to express themselves. Self esteem rises, posture improves, and over all health is affected positively. This is very satisfying to see and their happiness is contagious.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      I compare my prices with all the dance schools in my area of the San Francisco Bay Area. I work out of my home, so I can offer a much better price, because I have no overhead. I don't need to add on $15 to pay for the rental of an off site dance studio, and I have no expenses for travel time.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      When meeting a new dance student I like to sit down with them to relax, and talk a little at first to get to know something about them, their history of dancing, if any, in their past, their reasons for taking a dance class ( a wedding or special event, hobby, exercise, just for fun) their goals and desires. I ask them what kind of music or dance style they are most interested in, since I teach many different Ballroom and Latin dances. I also tell them about myself and my history of teaching and dance experiences. This is a good way to break the ice. I have music playing in the background to create an ambiance of comfort and relaxation.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I started dance lessons at age 4 in ballet, tap, and acrobatics. My mom was a profession dancer. Dance has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. I drifted away from dance in my early teen years, but found my way back learning "partner" dancing...all the Ballroom dances, such as Swing, Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, and so much more. It is SO much fun!
