We made the decision last minute to hire a choreographer for our first dance. Crystal was able to choreograph a dance we could learn quickly and it was beautiful. Working with her was a ton of fun and her pricing was very reasonable. I would recommend her to anyone needing or wanting dance lessons.

My experience with Jesse and Bianca has been wonderful. Their insight and instruction is invaluable. I learned more in one session with them than I did taking months worth of lessons at salsa nightclubs. They truly go above and beyond for their students. Their love for salsa and teaching are immediately evident upon meeting them. If you want to learn quickly and have fun doing it, then look no further.

My wife and I started taking dance lessons with Alexis about one month before our daughter’s wedding two and a half years ago. Although we had no dance experience before we started, Alexis got us sufficiently prepared so that we were able to dance with some confidence. After the wedding we continued our lessons at Alexis’ urging and after about 18 months she convinced us to compete in the newcomer amateur couples division which was quite an accomplishment considering how uncoordinated we were at the start. Since then we competed in a couple more competitions under Alexis’ expert guidance. She is an amazing instructor who seems to know every dance style and every detail of footwork and body position. Needless to say she is an accomplished dancer with an incredible flair and personality on the dance floor. Even though she has been our only teacher I have been able to observe other instructors with their students and her teaching style is far superior to anyone I’ve seen. It’s obvious she enjoys both teaching and dancing. Her students range in age from young to old, at various ability levels. She has even taught students with physical disabilities, showing how accomplished and professional she is. If anyone is even just considering taking lessons they should take at least one lesson from her and they’ll be hooked. She’s funny, inspiring, and a perfectionist, but not in a heavy handed way. I can’t imagine taking lessons from anyone else!!

Shawn and Katie are not dance instructors, they are miracle workers. They were patient, enthusiastic, flexible, and had tons of adaptability to my learning needs. I look forward to scheduling future dance lessons with them.

Mark taught my husband and I our first dance for our multicultural wedding. My husband and I had no prior dance training, and are both definitely the "wallflower" type. Thinking of the first dance caused both of us a lot of anxiety. Until Mark came in and changed our whole world and whole perception of how fun dance can be. Mark was always patient, an outstanding teacher, and truly made our first dance special. Our wedding was a multi-day event with numerous ceremonies and traditions from families of two distinct cultures. But dance lessons with Mark were a welcome respite from the hectic planning of the wedding. Mark taught us more than just dancing, he taught my husband and I to establish "connection", teamwork, and trust through dance! Now, my husband and I love to dance and it has become part of our lives, all thanks to Mark. I highly recommend Mark. He is an excellent teacher and you will love every minute of your dance lessons!

I took Salsa and Bachata classes with Tibor and it's amazing how I was able to reach a pretty good level on the social dance floor in a relative short amount of time. I'm a very shy person and I'm really glad I overcame my fear of dancing in front of others. Tibor helped me a lot on the way, not just with the physical ability but also mentally. He taught me how important the right mindset is and it's incredible that it actually works. I'm even thinking about joining a professional Salsa Team. He recommended for a salsa dance team in Hawthorne and put in a good word for me, because he knows the director.

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!

One of my first teachers- made me love the sport and I still use the things I learned to this day. So many years later after taking lessons with so many people, I realize how truly professional he was and how much heart and soul he continues to put into his students. Aside from personal talent, he has abundant knowledge for the art of dance. 11/10 teacher, friend, supporter.

Working With Sam Allen was the most amazing experience. Sam gave me private Hip Hop dance lessons and was phenomenal. He was encouraging, patient, and pushed me to my highest potential. Sam was accommodating, professional, and made me feel like a super star. He teaches at your pace and to your ability. I learned so much and had so much fun at the same time. I highly recommend Sam to anyone of all ages and levels of experience. There is no better teacher out there.

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.

Adrienne is an amazing dance instructor. Of course, she can teach you the basics, but what sets her apart is her ability to recognize your strengths and weaknesses and works with each. She clearly understands the nuance of dancing, foot work, weight shifts and timing, and how important they are to become the kind of dancer you want to be, should you want to compete professionally or just feel comfortable on any dance floor. She she has the ability to explain clearly and concisely what she wants you to do and how to get there. Just take one dance lesson with her, and you will never want anyone else to teach you. I guarantee it.

I greatly enjoyed my dance lesson with Darren. I'm a very shy person and have social anxiety, but Darren made me feel very comfortable. I felt like I learned SO MUCH in one hour. He was able to provide critiques while still being nice and encouraging. He was not at all intimidating. I think that's what makes him a great teacher. I had to quit our lessons due to personal reasons but, for sure, once I get things in order I'll be taking more dance lessons from him in the future. Thanks for such a good experience!

Ally, is a great person.dancer and teacher. We meet her back in 2016 in a park class, they did a competition and won; after that she didn't return to teach at the park(sad). But my daughter wanted to keep dancing, we look for some places and try but didn't like it. So I was following Ally in Instagram and reach at her about private lessons and we are happy with her.

I have been with Phill:s Ballroom Dance Studio for 25 years. This is a great studio if you are thinking of taking lessons. The staff is professional and dedicated to their students. The basic ballroom training is the best you can find. The studio is relaxing and fun. The practice dances give you extra opportunities to get individual instruction. The group classes help you make new friends. I highly recommend this studio.

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.
