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.

It does not get better than these guys. We left our dance lessons till a week before wedding but still had high ambitions ( go figure) and somehow these two pros (not just in dancing but in kindness and communication...and realism) helped us achieve our dream dance in a realistic and effortless way. As a bride to have a professional actually behave professionally and take a burden off your shoulders and not just meet but exceed your high expectations the way they did is something I will forever be grateful for.

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!

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!

We had such a great time learning to dance with Amy! She is so passionate , creative and patient. She gave us the gift of being able to dance together . She choreographed our first dance, taught us how to salsa and cha cha , and provided important rhythmic structure and movement for our father-daughter/ mother -son dance . She did such a great job of breaking down each movement and providing quick adjustments. We always felt like we grew so much from each lesson. I would highly recommend her to anyone with any dance level. She made our first dance so special!!! We can't thank her enough for all of help and coaching . Thank you! Alex & Shayna

Eduard has been a master in ballroom dancing for many years. He's been a mentor for numerous professional dancers. Through his etiquette fashion, he teaches the language of dance with a passion and grace by explaining the most details of ballroom dancing. He loves what he does and it shows in his method of teaching. The utmost prime quality is his genuin, person-friendly character that allows a person to experience the world of dance with a level of euphoria. Eduard is professional in character overall which is second nature when it comes to teaching dance. His body language and choice of words makes it an inviting experience. With his high level of emotional intelligence, he understands a student's personality clearly, therefore uses various methods to communicate his teachings. He is attentive to students and values class time to connect with them. His punctuality is perfect. Never late to class and always ready with prepared teaching routines for the class session. I highly recommend Eduard to students at every level of dancing experience!

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.

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.

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 couldn't be happier finding Dance Daly Ballroom, not only for my immediate need for help with my Cha-Cha dance moves because I'm doing a choreographed dance with my son (the mother-son dance), but because I want to learn ballroom for fun, confidence, for my new 2nd career (trying to get into Commercials, and ballroom dancing is great on the resume), so after this wedding, I'm definitely going to join! Both Sveta, the studio manager and her husband Jason, the owner, are so kind, warm and welcoming. Jason was my instructor at my first intro (free) lesson, and he was so patient and helpful and professional - I felt comfortable, not nervous at all, and he shared a variety of tips to help me remember my steps, plus gave me plenty of positive reinforcement when I "got it" right! I really appreciated the package deal he gave me, with a first-time customer discount, so I could afford to take 5 lessons between now and the wedding in 3 weeks! Check them out. It's an awesome studio.

    Awesome place for kids to learn and master the art of music... My daughter took guitar,piano and voice lessons... Unfortunately we had to move and she can no longer attend... I wish they would open a location near Riverside so my daughter could continue with her art education... If you're looking for professional and affordable music classes for your kids then Piano Place Music and Arts Center is the right place for them. I am happy that my daughter had the opportunity to be a student at this family owned music school and I hope she can come back in the near future..... Beautiful family and very nice/professional teachers!

    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.
