Working with Dan was one of the best and most positive experiences we have ever had. My wife and I saw the music video for Ed Shereen's Thinking Out Loud and we wanted to do the dance for our wedding. We came to thumbtack to look for an instructor and luckily we came across Dan. At first I was skeptical that an instructor could choreograph a routine we would like and could perform well, so we told him we just wanted to follow the music video. However, Dan let us know we could do something much more elegant than the video and put together an even better routine for us. And it turned out amazing. Lesson by lesson he custom tailored a routine for us that was simply incredible and far exceeded our expectations. He listens to what you like and dislike and will change things around for you while also giving you his good suggestions. We both came into this with no experience in ballroom dancing, me having no dance experience at all. I was definitely extremely nervous that I could pull this wedding dance off at first as I consider myself a pretty bad dancer. But after every lesson I came out feeling more and more confident. Dan is not only a great instructor, but also has a very positive attitude that kept me motivated that I could do this. In the end, the dance turned out unbelievable. My wife and I would both highly recommend him if you are looking for an instructor for any kind of dance and level. We will definitely go back to him in the future. Thank you Dan!
We've been taking weekly ballroom lessons. Dina's been very helpful and patient.
Desiree choreographed my first wedding dance. I showed up as a man without any rhythm or even the slightest interest in dancing. I thought the entire process would be one of the worst experiences of my life. Desiree not only had me enjoying dance on day 1, but I've been taking dance lessons for the last 7 months as a result of her inspiration. She managed to teach me two choreographed dances (Tango and Rhumba) in only a handful of lessons. Desiree is an excellent teacher, clearly explains and demonstrates moves, stays positive at all times, and keeps you motivated as a student. Cannot recommend her highly enough. Our guests were shocked and blown away by the choreography, and that was with someone with no prior dance experience. You will not be disappointed!
I have been taking ballroom dancing lessons with Daniel for over 4 years. He is funny, patient, and full of energy. He can teach you how to dance even if you think you have 4 left feet. He will find many different ways and customize to the students' need to explain a step or a pattern. I enjoy the learning process in addition to the results I achieved. A great dance teacher that think and teach out of the box and still keep the box in sight!
Caterina is an outstanding personal trainer. She adapts each training session to my capabilities and goals. She is very encouraging and motivating, which pushes me to surpass my expectations. She incorporates her dance experience to make the workouts fun and challenging. She has adapted exercises to improve my balance and stability. She is a delightful trainer to work with. I look forward to each training session.
Joann is a wonderful knowledgeable piano instructor. I stared my son in weekly piano lessons with Joann at age 6, last year. I was very impressed with her ability to teach the basics in a way he understood and connected to. He likes and respects her and is eager to learn. Joann is very relaxed, patient, and positive with him. I am very pleased! I would definitely recommend her to other potential students, young or old.
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!
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!
