I hired Exceptionally Yours Weddings & Events for dance lessons and as a day-of coordinator for my out-of-town wedding. Crystal handled our dance lessons and preliminary day-off planning, and Storm acted as our day-of coordinator. My now husband and I were very happy with the service we received from both. Crystal is especially knowledgeable and was instrumental in ensuring things were taken care of beforehand, and Storm was wonderful at dealing with the hectic day-of events. I even got compliments from both guests and other vendors on Storm's professionalism and responsiveness! I would highly recommend them, as they great at what they do and are very affordable for the area.

I'm so happy that we found Leslie from Choreography on the Go! It's been an amazing experience since our very first lesson one month ago. Leslie is super nice, patient, and most importantly flexible with our hectic schedules. She's made this experience so enjoyable, and is really great at making us laugh and just have fun with it. We look forward to continuing our dance lessons until the big day, and would recommend her to anyone looking for some choreography.

Having met Elisa a couple of years ago after she moved to San Diego, I began to take supplemental dance lessons with her from time to time. Now, she is my primary partner in ProAm dance competitions. Elisa has found a way to motivate me to continue to improve my performance quality while making the dance experience fun. She has a gift for sensing what teaching methods get through to each student, as we all learn in different ways, without making lessons into rote drudgery. She also can sense when a student is getting overwhelmed my technique and knows when to back away and reinforce what you already know first before moving on to the newest concept. I have seen my ability as a competitive and social dancer improve more quickly with Elisa than with any other dance instructor with whom I have worked over the past six years.

    Bonnie took the apprehension out of learning to dance at our very first lesson. With humor, warmth, and understanding of how people learn, she gave us the gift of something fun and active to do together. She is so patient and positive! Very professional, always there when she says she will be, Bonnie is a top-notch teacher.

    Joscelyn was hired by my fiancé to teach us our first dance. We wanted something very simple and elegant. We had a few songs already picked out and she helped us pick the perfect one. We opted to do 4 lessons within two months - wish we would have done more. It was such a relaxing time during such a stressful event - I could have used that. Thank you for making us beautiful! By the way I’m loving this name! Tres you!

      About

      I teach dancers who are willing to learn no matter what the level. I, myself, competitively danced for 12 years. I have also been dancing professionally for 4 years. I have performed at award shows, received numerous dance awards, danced for many hip-hop and contemporary companies throughout my dance career and danced for a shoe company. I have been teaching dance throughout California for the past 4 years. I enjoy teaching students of all ages. I continue to train with many dance companies throughout the LA area to keep my students up to date on what is new. When teaching, I focus not only on the technique of the dance but also they style. It is very important to not only master the moves but to also bring the dance to life.

      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.
