Introduction: I would love to choreograph and teach your bride/groom first dance, bride/father, groom/mother, or wedding party dance. I can choreograph and teach singles, couples, or group routines. I can choreograph and teach any special occasion dance/s or I can teach ballroom dance lessons even if you do not have a special occasion. My choreography is beautiful, whether it is simple and elegant or more detailed. Your lessons are private in a beautiful studio in Long Beach with no other students taking lessons at the same time. I will do home visits on some occasions, but mostly teach at the studio. I charge $65 for 1 hour or $80 for 1 1/2 hours which includes the choreography. The price is the same whether it’s 1 person or 20 people taking a lesson. I have a passion for teaching dance and for giving students superior dance lessons. I am very experienced, patient, and I really care about my students. I try to make you feel comfortable and relaxed and I aim to create YOUR vision of your perfect dance.

Our dance lessons with Arianna were by far the best part of the wedding planning process! She choreographed our first dance and taught us a few additional basic steps from different dance styles. Our first dance was a hit amongst our family and friends. Arianna has a wealth of dance knowledge and was so kind and patient with us throughout the process. We absolutely loved our time with her. Each lesson was so fun and something that we looked forward to every week! My husband was on the dance floor dancing with our guests and showing off his moves our entire wedding night and we've already put the additional dance moves she taught us to good use! We highly recommend Arianna for dance lessons and look forward to taking more lessons with her for fun in the future!!

My husband and I really enjoyed learning our wedding dance routine with her. We are beginners and she taught really well, we caught on easily because of her and had a lot of fun, and decided to sign up for another dance lesson- she even threw in a quick dance routine for our honeymoon dance towards the end! Her location is awesome- -you can eat at the restaurant or look out at the pier before your lesson and enjoy the view in the dance studio. She was very patient, positive, and such a joy. Her passion for dance is contagious and it shows in her work. She loves what she does and not only is she talented, she's a great teacher and that's hard to find! She was punctual in her text messages as well as for our dance lessons.

We had the best experience with Arianna! She choreographed two dances for us (bride/groom and mother/son). Our group had little to no prior dance experience. Arianna was wonderful, and worked with us step by step to ensure we would feel confident with our dances. We can’t wait to show our newly learned dance moves at the wedding! Arianna is one of the kindest human beings, and we are blessed to have met and worked with her. We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting dance instruction. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Our first dance was a hit! Arianna impressed us with how quickly she choreographed our dance and therefore how much time we had to practice. My husband (YAY) and I really enjoyed the process of learning the dance, practicing it together, and then getting to share it with our friends and family!

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!

Details: Two (e.g., myself and my husband) • First dance • Latin • Waltz • Slow Dance • Intermediate • As recommended by professional • 60 minutes • Monday • Saturday • Sunday • Morning (9am - noon) • I travel to the wedding dance instructor

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge $70 for 1 hour or $80 for 1 1/2 hrs for studio lessons, home visit prices depend on my travel distance, wedding and special occasion choreography always included in the price

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We communicate through Thumbtack and text and I ask about the vision that they have for their special occasion dance, or if they want lessons just in general and not for a special occasion, I find out which dances they want to learn. I ask for their song title if they are learning for a special occasion like a wedding and then I choreograph their dance exactly to fit their music. On their very first lesson, their dance is completely choreographed and ready for them to learn. We usually don't get the entire dance done the first lesson, but by second lesson, they know their dance and then we can really get into the details of the dance for the rest of their lessons.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have many years of jazz and ballet and ballroom training. I have a Bachelor's degree in Education. I have performed in 11 musicals and also danced professionally in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, and Japan in addition to teaching for major ballroom studios for 12 yrs and have taught independently for 15 yrs. I became Zumba certified and always try to get new choreography ideas, and techniques from many sources. I feel that the study of dance is a lifetime study. There is always something new to learn.
