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! :-)
Our session with Jessica was fantastic. We only had time for 1 lesson before our big day and she was able to help us learn a few new moves to add comfort level on our first dance. She’s very knowledgeable and seems to be able to teach dance at all different levels and styles. She also made us very comfortable and that was important so we didn’t have to hold back on the new moves
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.
Ruth is a great teacher! Very friendly and accommodating. We took a series of wedding tango dance lessons with her.
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.
I went to a solo introductory class with Tara and she was very professional and understanding of what I was looking for, she introduced me to different forms of ballroom dance and allowed me to choose those that I liked and was comfortable with. I have to admit to an amazing first experience and signed up for more classes right away.
I love Hebert's passion, instinct ability, and charm- a great combination for a positive dance lesson experience. Both my husband and I enjoyed our interaction with Hebert.
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.
Professional and great dance instructors. They provide excellent dance lessons and easy to learn.
Ava is a great dance teacher! I have been taking both group and private salsa classes with her in mission. She is very clear and good at paying invidious attention to everyone and calling out exactly what you need. Thank you Ava for the awesome few months, and thank you thumbtack for such great teacher!!
Sam is a great teacher and a master of tap dance. You could probably find teachers for swing dance, Sasa or Samba easily, but not with Tap Dance. Sam is the one. My husband and I decided to do some tap dance for our wedding banquet but we had no experience with tap dancing. We came up with this idea less than a month before the wedding so we weren't really sure whether we would be able to make it. It all changed with Sam's help and instructions. Sam did a great job teaching us from the basics and quickly come up with a choreography that works with the song we'd like to dance to. After 2-3 lessons, we were able to manage the dance - all thanks to Sam's great mastery of tap dancing, careful instructions and patience. Thanks so much Sam - for the patience and wonderful teaching!

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.
Hi! I can teach guitar, drums, breakdancing, ballroom dancing, etc. I am versatile and have studied music and dancing for 10 years. The first lesson is free!
We give the best dance lessons with the best dance instructors in town who are better than anywhere else in the city.
I don't just love what I do, I live it :) I started teaching dance because I want to share this passion that I have with other people, whether it is for fun, exercise, or passion. I think that when I teach dance, I gain more knowledge about dancing. And we just have fun most of the time.
I teach adult Zumba and youth hip-hop. Both classes are offered at RoCo Dance, or I can hold private dance instruction when the studio space is available.
I provide easy to understand instructions on many different styles of dance and can provide choreography for performances, weddings, competitions and more. I can work with your child to catch up to their dance class or to get ahead for an audition. I can work with you and your partner on a first dance or just basic steps to enjoy at a friend's wedding. I have a master's degree from Mills College and have been teaching movement and fitness for over a decade. I can also help you get in shape, recover from injury, or identify and strengthen any asymmetries you may have.
