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 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!!

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!

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!

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 wanted to surprise my wife with dance classes but didn't want to purchase it without seeing him in action so he agreed to have me come watch him teach one of his students. After seeing him, I was impressed so I purchased one class. Several weeks later, I presented the gift certificate to my wife and we had our first session. We were both impressed so I decided to purchase 20 more classes. The good thing about that was that he agreed to give me a discount if I prepay. in addition he has been patient, friendly and good with texting which I love. He is a good instructor and knows his stuff. We've had 3 lessons so far and going to our 4th one tonight. Give him a try

About

Hi! My name is Darren Wong and I am a member of the Kinjaz from NBC's World of Dance Season 1. With over 14 years of dance experience, I pride myself on sharing the knowledge I have been fortunate enough to learn with dancers of all skill levels. Most dance instructors have no organization to their courses and lessons plans for their individual students. I believe that this "random" lesson plan type of teaching is very unproductive and not beneficial for the students. If the students are not using what they learned from the previous lesson, then they are not growing as dancers. I love helping students reach the goals that they have set for themselves. As long as my students are having fun and progressing in their dance skills, I couldn't be happier.

Having had the opportunity to be a student of dance at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Pasadena CA., I can honestly say that JD Davis is an outstanding professional dance teacher who loves what he does! JD works patiently with his clients and gets to know them on a personal level in order to work with them more effectively. He is passionate about his craft and knowledge of dance. JD helps his clients learn and fine tune the choreography of any genre of dance be it, Ballroom, Fox Trot, Swing, Samba, Merengue, Salsa, to name just a few. JD was often requested as a teacher at our studio as he is approachable, friendly, professional, respectful,encouraging and hard working. What I loved most about JD was his sincere care and desire to make each of his students achieve their dance goals. JD is a promoter of good health and well being. He often encourages his students to set high standards for themselves and he lets his students know he will be right next to them every step of the way. If you ever see him dance you might easily understand why we, his students, all wanted to look like him on the floor! Smooth, with that touch of perfection! So Yes, I highly recommend JD Davis as your next dance teacher and someone you can trust to be available, punctual, and someone who eventually becomes unforgettable and helps you attain a greater sense of pride in your future endeavors involved in the realm of dance. ------------Sandra D.

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.
