Leela is great to work with. She has stared teaching me salsa and takes the time needed to explain things. I am a beginner and have never had a dance lesson ever. She is taking the time to explain things to me in terms I understand. She is great with Encouraging, motivating and building confidence in others. Even Daniele has stepped in to give advice and demonstration. If your thinking about stepping out and trying something new and want to learn to dance I highly recommend both Leela and Daniele. These two know their stuff 👍👍

We would recommend Mark to ANYONE!! We hired him to choreograph and teach us the waltz for our first dance for our wedding! We weren't the best students and didn't give him much time to teach us. On top of that, we chose a very difficult song and style of dance, especially for beginners. Mark was absolutely amazing to work with did such a great job on our dance. He was patient and understanding and was very flexible in working around our busy schedules. He is so worth the money and charged significantly less than other comparable studios. We had all the 1 on 1 time that our schedule would allow and completed the entire dance about a week before our wedding. Mark is very knowledgable in all sorts of dancing styles and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

My wife and I enrolled in preparation for the first dance at our wedding reception. Our instructor (Sarah) was amazing with the choreography, as well as making every effort to ensure that we were well prepared while having a great time! Our first dance was fantastic and will forever be a memory that Sarah helped create. We have also incorporated some of those choreographed moves from our first dance into general dancing as well. We have since continued our enrollment, with Sarah as our instructor, and do not see that changing anytime soon. Thanks so much for making our dance lessons such a fun, learning experience. We are far more confident on the dance floor and Sarah at FADS is the reason.

Nick, Laura and crew are very skilled in their craft. Their facility is very nice and offers ample space for group and individual dance lessons. I'm a beginner and in just 40 minutes, left feeling accomplished. Thank you! Henry

I took Zohar's classes for six years and stopped only when I moved out of Phoenix. I'd already performed professionally a bit (I'd danced for 6 years before) when I walked into her class for the first time and owe her a great deal. Having made up missed my usual intermediate/advanced classes by attending the beginner group, I've seen how Zohar is able to adapt her instruction so that dancers of different levels can get a lot out of class. With beginners she teaches technique patiently and thoroughly, and as you advance she begins to transition you into really putting the dance together. I've learned a ton of performance skills from her, though she does not pressure you to perform if it doesn't interest you. She basically gives her intermediate/advanced students a challenge and helps each student work through it, then gives feedback. With a lot of other group classes -- and I've been to a lot -- you get technique but never put it all together beyond a class choreography, but with Zohar you become comfortable with improvisation as you build on your technique. She also encourages you to develop your own style. It is also worth noting that Zohar has special training to work with women who are pregnant. I danced with her all the way through my pregnancy. I learned a LOT of different abdominal movements as we tried to persuade my breech baby to turn. (My daughter inconsiderately refused, but at least Zohar came to visit me in the hospital after my c-section!) I loved being able to (safely) do this gentle exercise, and I think it helped me stay energized and fit at work even as the third trimester dragged on. One thing I miss especially, though, are my classmates. The women who studied with me are amazing. There was always a feeling of sisterhood. Because my primary social circle outside of class was mostly math and engineering grad students, I didn't have a whole lot of female friends. I love these ladies! We all bring different prior dance experience and style to class and I feel like I've learned a lot from them, too. I've had 10 teachers in 4 states and have never taken classes that were so responsive to my needs and goals as a dancer. There is a definite void in my Wednesday nights since I moved away.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How much do dance lessons cost?

    Adults who want to learn to dance, whether to prepare for a wedding or to meet new people, often enjoy taking dance lessons from an experienced dance instructor. Instructors may offer classes one-on-one to individual students or couples, or to small groups. The national average cost for a dance instructor ranges from $30 to $50. Some studios offer a discounted introductory lessons or group lessons, as well as package deals that are more affordable than paying for individual lessons. Some dance instructors will travel to the student’s home, which usually costs more, while others hold small-group sessions in their studios. If you choose a small-group class, expect to pay less than for individual dance lessons.
