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.

Michelle is truly a magician. My fiance and I are taking lessons in preparation for our first dance and not only are her dance skills & teaching skills great but she is always punctual (maybe even a little early which is a-okay!) and comes with a great attitude no matter what type of day she has had or how tired she may be. Highly recommend her!

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.

Arianna is a great dance instructor. She was very prompt in her communication to me and was able to choreograph a dance with very short notice. I enjoyed my session with her and had a lot of fun learning my dance for my husband on our wedding day. She was very helpful and open to making changes that I needed or wanted. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of dance lessons!

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.

I have been taking Argentine Tango lessons from Avi for four months. He is a very good instructor. He shares his knowledge and passion for the dance with the students. The group classes begin with the basics and move into learning many of the steps. It's fun and great exercise for the body and mind!

I've booked Ally for a couple 1-on-1 classes and will continue to do so! She has such a fun energy, is soooo patient and encouraging. I'm really shy and a bad dancer, but the way Ally teaches really is empowering. She can break down things in a way that is understandable, to even those who are both musically and physically coordinately challenged. Also, I really like what she brings to the table. She has a lot of different playlists/music styles to introduce you too, and gives you a very broad approach on to dancing so that you can comfortably experiment with a lot of things. She has a lot of integrity as an artist, so she won't recycle other people's dances. Instead, she'll work with you to not only learn the basics, but do something fresh, fun, and unique. You'll never walk from her lessons feeling like you did someone else's work. Rather you'll get the feeling of accomplishment of doing something new, and it almost feels like yours. She really helps you connect you with that budding artist inside of you! Really, she has a fun attitude, and you can learn a lot of life things from her through dance, and she's someone who is a wonderful listener. She can provide you some guidance on and off the dance floor. I really recommend Ally for a well-rounded experience. I know you'll love her as much as I do!

Have nothing but positive feelings towards Phil’s Ballroom. I had a dance that I wanted to learn, they went out of their way to teach it to me. The only thing negative to say is that I found the parking to be a problem. However, once inside always a positive experience.

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.

About

Our dance studio is known to offer the highest quality of dance in Orange County, CA. Our teaching method is unique compared to other studios because we focus on teaching body coordination and understanding of how to use our body in movement. Other studios focus on teaching just steps, so eventually, students will just know a lot of steps, but don't look like they're dancing or they took any lessons. This is really a downside of teaching only steps.... Instructors at our studio are truly dancers at heart :) We love to dance, hence we want others to experience the excitement of dancing as well. Teaching dance is not a job for us. It's more like spreading our passion of dancing and excitement to others.

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.
