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!

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

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.

Dina was a great dance instructor and very friendly. My fiancé and I took private dance lessons for our first dance. My fiancé had very little dance practice but she helped both of us perfect our skills for our big day. We didn’t feel pressured nor judged of our skills. Highly recommend any couples seeking lessons. We looked forward to our weekend lessons. Thanks!!

I don't recall now how I found Desiree but I'm so glad I did! My fiancee did NOT want to do a choreographed wedding dance, but I wanted to have at least part of the dance memorized so we knew when the transitions and dips were. We had a few lessons with Desiree, perhaps at least 5, and Desiree was super welcoming, friendly, and easy to work with. We easily got along with her, which made being her students that much easier. We had a say into how the dance would look like and she styled it with an expert's eye. My fiancee and I had taken salsa classes at CCSF so we were a little bit better than beginners. She took what the moves that he knew and worked with it. We had picked a song we both liked but it had faster beginning so she taught us Bachata and transitioned into Salsa. She also edited the song for us so that the DJ could pay the clip at the wedding. During our class, she took videos with us so that we could watch it later and see how we could improve. She also helped us with the entrance into the room and the ending. I would definitely recommend her!

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 :)

My boyfriend and I have taken two classes with Ruth so far and it's been great! We already feel like we've started to get some basic steps under our belt that we can practice ourselves and look forward to our next classes! She makes sure that you get all the small in between movements like how to go from position to position that would be hard to learn in a group class or from an online source. She definitely goes the extra mile to make sure you understand how to communicate with your partner well and that you understand all the movements involved.

“Sonly is such an energetic and talented dancer and teacher!! Her enthusiasm is contagious, making even the shyest of individuals feel safe dancing in her class!! She takes her dancing seriously, so her students have fun, and at the same time, learn the steps accurately. I would definitely recommend learning from Sonly!!”

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!

My girlfriend and I signed up for swing dance lessons after taking a number of group classes and feeling like we reached the limit of what we could learn alone. Eliott watched us dance briefly and already had specific suggestions for how to improve. He had a great style of explaining *why* a certain technique was going to be easier, and had concrete advice for how to improve it (e.g. instead of "your leads aren't clear enough", it was "keep your elbow closer to your side"). He was very friendly, and I felt like I had improved a ton after only a few months of weekly lessons.

Monica Santana was fantastic. We requested a lesson for our wedding dance and she promptly followed up, had listened to our wedding song before, and gave us a great lesson. She also followed up with written instructions that helped us a ton. I would recommend her to anyone looking for dance lessons. Such a great teacher.

I have been going to MaryAnn’s classes for the past couple of years and she has been consistently amazing. She continues to keep me moving forward in my practice by encouraging me to move past my comfort zone and explore new areas I wouldn’t pursue on my own. Her ability to connect with her students combined with her knowledge of the way the body moves makes her an amazing teacher.

    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.
