Dan reached out to me and offered wedding dance private lessons. He had a very thoughtful list of questions asking beforehand in better preparing himself for the first lesson (which is awesomely free!!). I decided on him since he left me with great impression of customizing to my need & being extremely accommodating. I had fun taking lessons with him. Dan is very patient (and an amazing dancer) to students, and gives very clear instruction especially considering I am just a beginner. I feel comfortable having him as my teacher and will consider hiring him again for future ballroom private lessons! Highly recommended if you are looking for an instructor who can tailor to what you need & offer great instructions!

I had my first contemporary dance private lesson with Erin this weekend and she was incredible. She listened to my needs, took my lack of formal dance training to heart, and started with the fundamentals that I needed to jump in further. She was incredibly hands on with fixing my form -- I've never had a teacher do this before and it was very eye opening to finally understand the concepts every other teacher had tried to previously explain. Erin also has an impressive formal dance and teaching background and it is immediately obvious that she is one of the gems here. I feel so fortunate to have found her. She has a beautiful space in San Francisco that she teaches out of and has excellent communication. After finishing my lesson, I knew I wanted to continue seeing her and bought her 5 lesson package. I cannot recommend her highly enough and encourage others of all dance backgrounds and levels to sign up with Erin.

These two wonderful people is like being taught to dance by your best friend. They both have the ability like any good coach to watch what you're doing and correct your style in a way that's relaxed and fun. They both have group classes that are spectacular. The day after you go to one of their classes you can definitely feel the difference in your dance right away. It's like they've given you something that cannot be taken away. You own it now and you can use it every time you're on the dance floor. I've taken lessons from many dance instructors in the Bay Area but both of these great instructors have unique ability to convey complicated styling and dance patterns in a relaxed and fun way. Basically you leave their class sweaty and tired but invigorated.

Our session with Jessica was fantastic. We only had time for 1 lesson before our big day and she was able to help us learn a few new moves to add comfort level on our first dance. She’s very knowledgeable and seems to be able to teach dance at all different levels and styles. She also made us very comfortable and that was important so we didn’t have to hold back on the new moves

I know Emily from riding AIDS lifecycle with her a few years back. I reached out to her about 2 months prior to my wedding for First Dance lessons with my fiancé. We have weekly lessons at a studio space on Missouri street in SF. She is easy to work with and schedule lessons. Her prices are very reasonable and she even donates $10 of every lesson to a charity close to her that you pick! (we chose ALC) Emily is great. She is very knowledgeable and very aware of teaching same-sex partner dancing. I knew she would be a valuable instructor for that reason and refused to go to a stock dance studio. We have choreographed an entire song, and every week we get better and better. The hour spent with Emily is full of smiles, laughter and overall great time. My partner and I look forward to dance lessons every week! She is a joy to be around and very helpful. I highly recommend Emily to anyone looking for dance lessons! (We even drive up from Palo Alto to see her!)

Dina was a great dance instructor and very friendly. My fiancé and I took private dance lessons for our first dance. My fiancé had very little dance practice but she helped both of us perfect our skills for our big day. We didn’t feel pressured nor judged of our skills. Highly recommend any couples seeking lessons. We looked forward to our weekend lessons. Thanks!!

My daughter was in the 8th grade wanting to try out for the high school cheerleading team. My daughter had no Dance Experience whatsoever, but she had a passion for wanting to learn to dance. She was very shy and didn't have a lot of self-confidence. She was too shy to be in a group dance class with other girls. We found Desiree and told her our goal was to get my daughter ready to try out for the high school cheerleading team which should be sometime in the summer. Upon first meeting Desiree me and my daughter were truly impressed with how passionate she was about dancing and teaching it to others. But it wasn't only just about dance it was giving girls the confidence to be comfortable with who they are. My daughter only had three weeks with Desiree before we found out that her cheerleading tryouts were actually that weekend. My daughter was supposed to try out with two of her friends but they bailed on her. My daughter said that doesn't matter I'm not going to let it stop me from trying out. My daughter went to the high school not knowing anybody in the tryouts. She told me "if it hadn't been for Desiree I would have never tried out by myself". But because of just those three short weeks 2 times a week Desiree gave my daughter the confidence and felt comfortable enough with the skills that she learned in such a short time to try out. Needless to say my daughter made the JV cheerleading team for San Mateo High School for 9th grade. Seeing the confidence and the skills that Desiree had taught my daughter is priceless to me . I definitely recommend Desiree to anybody looking for a dance instructor or private lessons for dance. If I could I'd give her 10 Stars. ~~Thank you for everything Desiree~~ Tiffany & Alexia

Marge was a great instructor. I had no idea about any sort of dance, which wasn't a problem for marge. She was great at showing us how to do any dance we wanted, starting from the very basics to the more advanced steps. Her home studio is very clean, easy to practice in, and has great acoustics/lighting. I would highly recommend marge and fascinating dance school for any of your dance needs.

My church wanted to do a program of three Latin Dance lessons over the course of a month. We looked for somebody to do this and we found the most marvelous teacher --- Ruth Caspary of Latin Connection Dance. First of all, she was really professional and easy to plan with. And she had good suggestions for the planning. We were able to fit in bachata, salsa, and American tango. Super! Second, she came on site (we have a great space with a wooden floor) with her equipment and music and was ready to teach. Third, she is a super teacher. She accounted for each person's abilities and was energetic and generous with her time. We all learned a lot and had great fun, too. Last, but not least, she is social and friendly, a good conversationalist as well as a great teacher. There's no question who we'd go to in the future.

Daniel has been a great instructor. Love the way he has put interesting dance combinations together for the two dances we wanted to learn - swing and rumba. He is very patient and breaks down each new dance step so that it is easy to learn. It is so convenient and comfortable to have him teach these dance lessons in our home.

I had so much fun working with Isaac on my first lesson! The vibe was super friendly and we went over a half-dozen basic steps, giving me plenty of material to practice on. This is exactly what I was seeking from private hip-hop dance lessons.

"First Dance" lessons with choreography assistance less than 2 weeks out from our wedding. We started out with 2 and extended it to 3 lessons. Joseph was really helpful instructing the two of us that have no background in dancing. In 1 hour we had the basis for a first dance at our wedding. In 2 hours he got us better at that and added flourishes. In 3 hours he worked on the entire production. He knows what he's doing and has fun doing it.

His energy, enthusiasm, creativity, and passion for dancing is very evident and contagious in his form of teaching. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned dancer, Hebert will challenge you and take your dancing skills to the next level while keeping the training extremely fun and highly addictive. Prior to taking private lessons and group classes from Hebert, I had no previous dance background but I can truly say that in a short amount of time he has helped me to become a more confident and well rounded dancer and performer. I am very thankful and grateful to have the pleasure of training under an extremely talented, patient and humble instructor. Whether your goal is to learn as a beginner, enhance your dancing skills, or perform in front of an audience, I would highly recommend Hebert Aguilar. Trust me you will not be disappointed.

Nikolai is my Latin dance teacher and I have been dancing with him since January 2018. In a short amount of time, I have improved my dancing so much that we competed at the San Francisco Open in April 2018 on the Open Silver category earning 1st places in all single dances (chacha, samba, rumba, pasodoble and jive). Nik is an expert dance teacher who has great knowledge and enthusiasm. He is patient and gives just the right level of instruction and correction. I enjoyed every dance lesson with Nik and I highly recommend him.

Monica Santana was fantastic. We requested a lesson for our wedding dance and she promptly followed up, had listened to our wedding song before, and gave us a great lesson. She also followed up with written instructions that helped us a ton. I would recommend her to anyone looking for dance lessons. Such a great teacher.

What can I say besides she is the VERY BEST! I have been practicing with MaryAnn for 4 years both in classes full of students and in one on one private sessions. She has helped me gain confidence in myself as a yogi and as an individual. She pushes me to push myself but also knows when I need to slow it down and listen to my body (especially during pregnancy). MaryAnn’s love for movement is everpresent in the way she flows and transitions through both her yoga and dance practice. The way she sequences yoga flows on demand is so creative. She helps people explore and play with movement, moving them beyond their comfort zone. I have had many “ah ha!” moments with MaryAnn all because of her “Just try it!” perspective.

    My partner and I took dance lessons from Justin for about a year and a half. In the course of 20+ lessons, he took our rudimentary understanding of dance to a competitive level. I always felt like he was sensitive to our comfort level and made very complex styles and moves accessible to us. Few teachers have an understanding of club, international and competitive dance styles in the way that Justin does. He is a gifted, patient and extremely fun teacher.

    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.
