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.

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!

For my first salsa and latin-dance classes I went to weekly classes in a studio in Hollywood. I felt like I didn't get enough attention from the teachers because there were over 15 students in the class. I decided to try private classes so I registered on Thumbtack because a friend recommended it to me for private classes. I got a quote from Tibor and I gave it a try. I was surprised how much I got better in a short amount of time just due the fact of taking private classes. Tibor gave me his undivided attention and taught me the right technique and he helped me to help myself. I learned how to get the right mindset. His professionalism speaks for himself. The only problem was that it was kind of far away from where I live and I wanted to learn Cuban salsa and not L.A. Salsa, which he was not able to teach me since he's a professional L.A. Style Salsa Dancer. All in all I'm really happy and satisfied with his passionate art of teaching. I really felt his love for dance in every lesson.

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!

My experience with Galit has been amazing and incredible to me since the first day she taught me in dance class. She's patient and She'd let me know what I need to work on. What I love about Galit the most is her positve personality and how she make the class so fun. She have inspired me so much not just in dancing but how she love helping people and making a difference in the world. I appreciate her for always pushing me off my limit and for always believing in me and that's what we all look for a Dance Teacher.

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.

I greatly enjoyed my dance lesson with Darren. I'm a very shy person and have social anxiety, but Darren made me feel very comfortable. I felt like I learned SO MUCH in one hour. He was able to provide critiques while still being nice and encouraging. He was not at all intimidating. I think that's what makes him a great teacher. I had to quit our lessons due to personal reasons but, for sure, once I get things in order I'll be taking more dance lessons from him in the future. Thanks for such a good experience!

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.

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.

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

I have been with Phill:s Ballroom Dance Studio for 25 years. This is a great studio if you are thinking of taking lessons. The staff is professional and dedicated to their students. The basic ballroom training is the best you can find. The studio is relaxing and fun. The practice dances give you extra opportunities to get individual instruction. The group classes help you make new friends. I highly recommend this studio.

I love Gary Franco! He is one of the BEST coaches out there today!! You are instantly welcomed by the smiling face. I suck at Dancing. However I did a class with Gary, and he was a super good instructor, patient and informative. I have been taking classes with him for a couple of months now, and I love it. Gary has expertly adjusted my private instruction to keep the challenge and enjoyment levels high and the frustration level low. I always look forward to coming to class. If you've ever dreamed of taking center stage, or just wished to not be a total embarrassment at the next wedding you're attending, Gary's dance classes is the place to start. Allow him to work his MAGIC on you!!!

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.
