I hired Exceptionally Yours Weddings & Events for dance lessons and as a day-of coordinator for my out-of-town wedding. Crystal handled our dance lessons and preliminary day-off planning, and Storm acted as our day-of coordinator. My now husband and I were very happy with the service we received from both. Crystal is especially knowledgeable and was instrumental in ensuring things were taken care of beforehand, and Storm was wonderful at dealing with the hectic day-of events. I even got compliments from both guests and other vendors on Storm's professionalism and responsiveness! I would highly recommend them, as they great at what they do and are very affordable for the area.

No one has had any dance lessons yet (!), but she communicates a welcomed professionalism. She responds quickly and has a genuine enthusiasm for what she does.

We hired Mindy to help my husband and me with our first dance for our wedding. She was very dedicated in preparing our dance routine and ensuring that we were comfortable with the dance moves. We had two dance lessons. The first was very helpful in introducing the dance steps and getting used to the foot work. We recorded the dance routine with Mindy which was extremely helpful in observing how natural and elegant the dance is supposed to look like. Our second dance lesson was focused on refining the dance moves and make alterations that was best suited for our level. She had a good eye for the 2nd dance lesson to make adjustments that made sense for us. Overall, we were very pleased with hiring Mindy as a dance teacher and making our first dance a success! She also comes to your home which is a plus and makes it very convenient. She is willing to work with your schedule and is very committed in ensuring you are completely happy with her service. We highly recommend Mindy as a dance teacher!!

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.

Shyrelle has been working with my daughter for about a month now. My daughter needed hip hop & jazz lessons so that she could perform in her talent show at summer camp as well as try out for the dance team next year. I've seen her vastly improve in such a short time. Shyrelle implements discipline & fun & is so great with teens. Highly recommended!

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

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.

Kathy was amazing. I took swing dance lessons on my own. She was a great lead. In one lesson, I almost learned the entire dance. She catered to my learning ability. I am looking forward to more lessons.

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.

Lisa Marie gave us dance lessons for our wedding, and we could not have been happier! She was professional and fun. She helped us improve our dancing, but also made the whole process a real pleasure. I would recommend her to anyone looking for dance lessons for their wedding. She is wonderful to work with and you will not only have a great looking first dance, you will have a fabulous time in the process.

I've booked Ally for a couple 1-on-1 classes and will continue to do so! She has such a fun energy, is soooo patient and encouraging. I'm really shy and a bad dancer, but the way Ally teaches really is empowering. She can break down things in a way that is understandable, to even those who are both musically and physically coordinately challenged. Also, I really like what she brings to the table. She has a lot of different playlists/music styles to introduce you too, and gives you a very broad approach on to dancing so that you can comfortably experiment with a lot of things. She has a lot of integrity as an artist, so she won't recycle other people's dances. Instead, she'll work with you to not only learn the basics, but do something fresh, fun, and unique. You'll never walk from her lessons feeling like you did someone else's work. Rather you'll get the feeling of accomplishment of doing something new, and it almost feels like yours. She really helps you connect you with that budding artist inside of you! Really, she has a fun attitude, and you can learn a lot of life things from her through dance, and she's someone who is a wonderful listener. She can provide you some guidance on and off the dance floor. I really recommend Ally for a well-rounded experience. I know you'll love her as much as I do!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do you wear to swing dance lessons?

Swing dance is an increasingly popular style of ballroom dance with a dress code that reflects its roots in the 1920s-1940s jazz era. Although many studios don’t require historically accurate costumes for their private dance lessons, many dancers want to dress the part. You can wear clothes that are comfortable to move — and sweat — in, such as T-shirts and loose skirts or khakis. Or for an appropriately vintage look, women often wear shirt dresses with a knee-length A-line or circle skirt that allows for plenty of swishy movement. Men usually opt for a button-down shirt and trousers. The most important part of a swing dance outfit is the shoes. Both men and women can opt for simple sneakers, like Keds, or leather dance shoes, such as saddle shoes. Until you have several dance lessons under your belt, stay away from heels.
