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!

My fiance and I signed up for dance lessons with Erin and we couldn't be happier. I started out with zero background in dance and after only a couple lessons my fiance and I have our first dance choreographed. I'm actually excited to dance at my wedding which is saying a lot. Erin is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable right away. I would highly recommend her!

If you're looking for Latin or Ballroom dance instruction I highly recommend Jeremy and Carolyn. I've been training with them for 2 years and have only great things to say. They bring amazing technical knowledge and expertise, and wonderful performance skills. They are also personable and fun! And as a successful, professional competitive couple they offer experience you won't find every day. Do it! :-)

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!

Marge was very friendly and understanding making it easy for a couple of non-dancers to begin learning ballroom dancing for the first time ever. We only had 4 hours with her since we decided on choreographing a ballroom dance so late in the game, but she was able to bring us up to speed quickly and professionally. She would get sidetracked sometimes and begin telling us stories but it was charming and she didn't stay off track for too long. Her teaching style was firm but patient at the same time and the lessons were always fun. Our dance turned out fantastic, especially considering the short amount of time she had to teach it to us and the fact that we had no prior dance training at all.

We took dance lessons from Alpa for our first dance at our wedding reception. She choreographed the whole thing and even asked us for our input and offered to let us change things based on comfort and preference. She did a great job though and me being the control freak that I am, I'm surprised that I didn't have a single change request! Let me stress that neither one of us are dancers and I was very worried about doing the dance in front of so many of our friends and family. But Alpa was so patient with us and made us feel so comfortable. We feel like we've known her for years yet we just met her a couple weeks ago! We learned the dance in two lessons and we will be back for our final lesson next week just to practice in front of her with my 25 lb lehenga and heels. If you need dance lessons of any kind, she is your girl! Thank you, Alpa! We are so thrilled that you will be a part of our big day in such a big way.

I had so much fun working with Isaac on my first lesson! The vibe was super friendly and we went over a half-dozen basic steps, giving me plenty of material to practice on. This is exactly what I was seeking from private hip-hop dance lessons.

Freddy is fabulous! We hired her for a mom / son dance for his bar mitzvah. This was not a typical slow dance. We asked her to copy the choreography from our favorite video. She showed up at the studio having already broken down the choreography for us. Then she had us go through some warmup dancing and started the choreography. She was incredibly responsive to our needs. I wanted the dance broken down for me a certain way so I could nail the steps. She was supportive of my son, who had never taken a dance lesson. Within the time we booked, we nailed the dance and video'd the choreography. Cannot say enough good things about Freddy. She's upbeat, friendly and makes you feel welcome in a dance studio.

Jasmine transformed dancing for me. Before taking a few lessons with her, dancing was a huge source of anxiety for me -- I avoided it at all costs. Jasmine helped me find the beat, offered me reassurance about the learning process, and eventually gave me a repertoire of moves to draw on. I danced at my wedding thanks to Jasmine. Also, she is super reliable, punctual, kind, and professional. I recommend her very, very highly. I am so thankful!

I have been learning dance from Sonly for more than 10 years. She is a great dancer ( simply a professional dander in my eye as I see at dance show/contests) and at a same time a great teacher. Her passion for teaching is so strong that you are inspired to learn and to improve (I was a person who was too shy to dance when I started with Sonly and become one who has good confidence of myself). What makes her exceptional is her insight of music and lead you to dance with understanding of music. I am also very impressed by her teaching ability that she sees exactly and precisely in each individual what to work on. She is also sensitive to feelings of students and coach in way you feel comfortable. I love Sonly!!! Trust me, you will lover her to be your teacher!!!

If one is interested in learning ballroom dancing, it is very important to seek a knowledgeable teacher who possesses great integrity and who will not exploit students for financial gain (by pushing competitions or by selling a large number of lessons.) Nik is such a teacher. He is not only an expert in both Latin and Ballroom dancing, but also he is very patient, kind and encouraging. I recommend Nik highly and without reservation.

I loved Sarah, she is an amazing teacher for my 10 year old daughter. Her energy is infectious, she's so good with kids. Really she's just such a people person. I really like that she is still competing and continuing to get lessons with international coaches. My daughter is getting international ballroom and latin training without having to travel overseas. Love her!

Monica Santana was fantastic. We requested a lesson for our wedding dance and she promptly followed up, had listened to our wedding song before, and gave us a great lesson. She also followed up with written instructions that helped us a ton. I would recommend her to anyone looking for dance lessons. Such a great teacher.

    My partner and I took dance lessons from Justin for about a year and a half. In the course of 20+ lessons, he took our rudimentary understanding of dance to a competitive level. I always felt like he was sensitive to our comfort level and made very complex styles and moves accessible to us. Few teachers have an understanding of club, international and competitive dance styles in the way that Justin does. He is a gifted, patient and extremely fun teacher.
