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 $50 for 1 hour or $65 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.

Wedding Dance Lessons

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!

Wedding Dance Lessons

I can't say enough good things about Arianna. She's the best dance teacher there is and the best one could possibly ask for. She taught us our first dance. It's so beautiful. My guests kept praising us for the dance and even said we look like professional dancers. She lets you pick the song and choreograph FOR FREE, which is crazy because she does such a good job with it. The dance is super classic, natural and surprise, not hard to learn!! My husband had 0 dancing experience and was pretty stiff at first. Arianna managed to calm him down and in the end he's dancing beautifully. With her extensive teaching experience Arianna's price is super reasonable. I highly recommend her to anyone who need to learn dancing for any occasion. If there's a 100 star option I'll give her 1000. Thank you Arianna!!

Wedding Dance Lessons

I cannot say enough about Arianna and her amazing dance routine she created for my husband and I! Before meeting her, I sent her our song and when we met she had created the most elegant beautiful easy to learn routine. Our first meeting she spent an hour and a half teaching us the steps and it was so easy with her. I would recommend her to all couples who are looking for that once-in-a-lifetime experience at their wedding with their first dance! She is truly a professional and a sweetheart to work with. And text friendly which is always great. Thank you Arianna! ❤💃🏻 Mr and Mrs Hooks

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

    I charge $50 for 1 hour or $65 for 1 1/2 hrs (90 minutes) for studio lessons. I charge $75 for 11/2 hrs (90 minutes) for home visits.

  • 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.
