We had Dan for our wedding first dance lessons. From the get-go, Dan had a very detailed, yet easy to follow instructions. We don't have any dancing background, yet he put so much trust in us to perform some amazing moves and created a unique routine. Everyone at our wedding were thoroughly impressed with our dance. Thank you Dan!
We've been taking weekly ballroom lessons. Dina's been very helpful and patient.
I don't recall now how I found Desiree but I'm so glad I did! My fiancee did NOT want to do a choreographed wedding dance, but I wanted to have at least part of the dance memorized so we knew when the transitions and dips were. We had a few lessons with Desiree, perhaps at least 5, and Desiree was super welcoming, friendly, and easy to work with. We easily got along with her, which made being her students that much easier. We had a say into how the dance would look like and she styled it with an expert's eye. My fiancee and I had taken salsa classes at CCSF so we were a little bit better than beginners. She took what the moves that he knew and worked with it. We had picked a song we both liked but it had faster beginning so she taught us Bachata and transitioned into Salsa. She also edited the song for us so that the DJ could pay the clip at the wedding. During our class, she took videos with us so that we could watch it later and see how we could improve. She also helped us with the entrance into the room and the ending. I would definitely recommend her!
Daniel is so great. We took beginner's salsa lessons. Daniel is a consummate professional - reliable, communicative, knowledgeable, patient, good-natured, flexible, funny, and versatile. He was equally good at explaining things to me in dance terms and to my (beginner) boyfriend using analogies that felt more accessible to him. We made a surprising amount of progress in a short time, and Daniel was super understanding when we barely practiced between lessons, helping us catch back up and still make progress every lesson. Daniel is also just a really chivalrous person and really brings the politesse of being a good dance partner into the lesson. Highly recommend getting a package of lessons with Daniel. It's a good value and those extra few lessons can take you from just-the-basics to having a reasonable set of moves that you can build on and improvise from.

I've been taking private lessons in ballet and jazz from Zaire for about four months now, and I can confidently say that this was the best decision that I made this year! My only previous dance experience was five years ago, a beginner's class that my high school offered for physical education. Early this year, I decided that I wanted to try out for the dance team at my college, hoping I could train hard enough to prepare for auditions in September. Zaire has been the perfect dance teacher to help me work toward this goal. Every lesson, she pushes me more to perfect my technique, build up my stamina, and to really perform each movement. She works me VERY hard, but I've gotten in so much better shape and can see and feel improvement in every aspect of my dancing. Zaire instructs with the perfect balance of being tough with high expectations while keeping things fun and creating an environment in which working hard doesn't feel like work at all. She is a beautiful person who truly cares about her students! I am so blessed to have her as a dance teacher, and I recommend her to absolutely anyone who wants to experience the joy in dancing!
Taylor was an AMAZING dance instructor! We used her for our 1st dance for our wedding and could not have had a better experience. Taylor is an unbelievably skilled and patient instructor. We were complete beginners, yet with Taylor's expertise, ended up with a fantastic dance routine. Taylor's vision is fresh, fun, and unique and you will be left with anything but a typical wedding dance routine. We cannot recommend her enough!
