Erin gave us dance lessons for our wedding first dance. Even at the last minute, Erin was easy to communicate and schedule with. She managed our time efficiently and clarified anything she felt was unclear during the dance lessons. Erin had a great, friendly, upbeat attitude from beginning to end and made us feel comfortable quickly. Highly recommend!
These two wonderful people is like being taught to dance by your best friend. They both have the ability like any good coach to watch what you're doing and correct your style in a way that's relaxed and fun. They both have group classes that are spectacular. The day after you go to one of their classes you can definitely feel the difference in your dance right away. It's like they've given you something that cannot be taken away. You own it now and you can use it every time you're on the dance floor. I've taken lessons from many dance instructors in the Bay Area but both of these great instructors have unique ability to convey complicated styling and dance patterns in a relaxed and fun way. Basically you leave their class sweaty and tired but invigorated.
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 a great instructor. I had no idea about any sort of dance, which wasn't a problem for marge. She was great at showing us how to do any dance we wanted, starting from the very basics to the more advanced steps. Her home studio is very clean, easy to practice in, and has great acoustics/lighting. I would highly recommend marge and fascinating dance school for any of your dance needs.
My church wanted to do a program of three Latin Dance lessons over the course of a month. We looked for somebody to do this and we found the most marvelous teacher --- Ruth Caspary of Latin Connection Dance. First of all, she was really professional and easy to plan with. And she had good suggestions for the planning. We were able to fit in bachata, salsa, and American tango. Super! Second, she came on site (we have a great space with a wooden floor) with her equipment and music and was ready to teach. Third, she is a super teacher. She accounted for each person's abilities and was energetic and generous with her time. We all learned a lot and had great fun, too. Last, but not least, she is social and friendly, a good conversationalist as well as a great teacher. There's no question who we'd go to in the future.
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.
Bertus is very professional, very up front about costs, and a very encouaging dance teacher. We have booked 5 more lessons so that we will be able to dance at an upcoming wedding.
My [then] fiancée and I took lessons from Eliott for our first dance. Eliott was patient, fun, and an excellent teacher. We recommended him to our friends who also took lessons for their first dance!
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.
Nikolai is my Latin dance teacher and I have been dancing with him since January 2018. In a short amount of time, I have improved my dancing so much that we competed at the San Francisco Open in April 2018 on the Open Silver category earning 1st places in all single dances (chacha, samba, rumba, pasodoble and jive). Nik is an expert dance teacher who has great knowledge and enthusiasm. He is patient and gives just the right level of instruction and correction. I enjoyed every dance lesson with Nik and I highly recommend him.
Professional and great dance instructors. They provide excellent dance lessons and easy to learn.
I hired Paula to teach a swing dance lesson during my boyfriend's 30th birthday party and the whole process could not have been smoother. Paula was super flexible, easy to book with and had great follow through. She arrived perfectly on time for the lesson and was a true delight. My boyfriend has taken tons of swing dancing classes over the years and he said that she was the best teacher he's ever had. She spent time helping every couple in our group and her experience really showed. I cannot possibly recommend her more highly!
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.
