Daniel made me feel very comfortable from the very beginning. My previous dance experience was very minimal (a few classes over 25-35 years ago). Daniel has an amazing gift for teaching dance. He is very patient and good at articulating the fundamentals of the different dances. He is also very professional and utilizes every minute of the lesson. I always walk away from my lessons feeling like I improved my dancing skills, had a great time, and with a smile on my face.
Erin and James were amazing teachers! We went from knowing nothing about salsa dance to having a full song choreographed! Preparing our first dance was the most fun of the wedding planning, and our dance surprised all of our guests! We had so much fun that we want to keep taking dance classes with Erin. Erin was super flexible with our schedule and helped us come up with something that we loved and felt comfortable with. I can't recommend her enough. Thank you for the beautiful choreography, and teaching us so much!
My fiance and I had an amazing dance lesson with Dina! She was super responsive and flexible in scheduling the lesson and it was well worth the money! We look forward to more lessons before and after the wedding!
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.
We had such a fun time with Marge! It was a great base for our upcoming wedding dance! We're looking forward to receiving a copy of our song from the band so that we can continue more date-night dance classes before the wedding :)
Ruth is a great teacher! Very friendly and accommodating. We took a series of wedding tango dance lessons with her.
I've been dancing with Emily for a few months after dancing in a different studio, where I was feeling that the instructor was only one step ahead of my learning. With Emily, I feel that she can actually teach me and adapts to my style and level. She is great with all levels, and is patient and kind to her students. Emily loves to dance, she is great at teaching me how to dance and picks up on all the little and big things that I need to improve on, is great at motivating and supporting my learning.
Tara is our instructor. Her teaching methods are great and we are having fun! Tara is a sweet heart, and is super patient. Signed up for 10 classes for my hubby & I.
Desiree is a pleasure to work with! She is very patient with beginners and good at breaking down the steps so that a person with very little experience can learn in a fun and low pressure way. She is also pretty flexible with with where the lesson can take place. We would definitely recommend her and are considering taking her group dance class after our wedding.
Jessica is very patient and caters to the level of her students. We had many first time dance students and she took the time to break down all the steps. She had a positive attitude and great energy throughout the class
I've been taking classes from Yaelisa for 10 years. She teaches proper technique and emphasizes musicality and expression. She develops great choreographies and teaches improv too. She creates opportunities for performing in various settings, which is great experience. I never feel bored, it's always challenging and helping me grow!
Training with Cat has been awesome - it's been a few classes but I'm making steady progress. Her sessions are a good mix of short routines that repeat so you build 'muscle memory' and improve as well as new routines that help keeps it interesting. And her traveling to my apt gym makes it so much easier for me to stick to an exercise routine without any excuses! Well, I can keep going... Thank you, Cat!
Fitness is assured when you Samba do Coracao! Great workout! Routines are designed for your skill level. All participants feel the beauty of Samba learning their dance steps!
Diana is a great teacher! She's super fun and friendly and we've really enjoyed having weekly classes with her!
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!
It was a pleasure working with Carrie! She offered a fair price and I look forwarding to working with her in the future.
Sierra broke the dance into steps, made it easy to learn. She has grace in her dance. It wasn't like a class, very fun and had a good time learning dance from her. I highly recommend her
My daughter absolutely loves Ms. Jacqueline! I really like the combination of art and dance.
