I wanted to wait until we got to experience a few months with Dan before writing a review. After the first couple months learning basic dance steps, Dan made it easy and fast, putting an awesome choreography together. My fiancé and I are still learning and polishing up our dance. All I can say is that I am super impressed. We are first time dancers with no experience. Dan has lots of patience and a great easy teaching method. We are learning quick for not having any experience. Once we get our wedding dance all polished up, we will be proud to share it with everyone! We're going to continue to learn dancing with Dan even after our wedding. He's a very talented and amazing dance instructor!
Erin was wonderful to work with! Super responsive and professional. The crowd loved her! Not only were she and her dance partner wonderful dancers, but they were also great at getting the crowd going and teaching them how to dance- they loved it!
Private lessons with Jeremy are always fun (he was our teacher for over two years). He has a one-of-a-kind talent for explaining dance moves and creating metaphors that help you "get" both, the technical and the performing aspects of the dance. His choreography, for leader and follower, is always creative and really captures the mood of each dance. Overall, two thumbs up and highly recommend for dancers of any level. We also took a few group classes that Carolyn taught. She's a friendly, easy-going instructor who makes everyone welcome, regardless of skill level. Take her class (or do a private lesson with her) as a fun and light date night activity. :)
Eliott is a great social swing instructor. My partner and I are intermediate dancers, and we learned lindy hop and charleston. We had a ton of fun dancing with Eliott, and I always looked forward to the lessons. He's all about having a good time and learning to dance in social environments - not too formal, but definitely knows his stuff! The instruction was really high quality, and I was impressed by how well he could suggest improvements by only watching us dance for a couple minutes. I really trusted his advice, and learned things way more quickly than I ever could have in a group environment.
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.
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.
I am a completely inexperienced 67 yo ballroom dancer, vision and balance challenged, with a history of performance anxiety. Despite these issues, Daniel was able to give me a wonderful start with enough success that I got the thrill of dancing and am inspired to continue. He was warm, patient, and encouraging in addition to being obviously very skilled and experienced.
Excellent instructor who really went the extra mile to teach salsa to novice dancers at our Cinco de Mayo party.
I have grown as a dancer and become invested in the Bay Area's flamenco community through the art, passion and mentoring of Yaelisa and Caminos Flamencos. This dance company not only offers a diverse mix of classes, performances and special events, but also invites dancers, musicians and audience members of all ages and stages to immerse themselves in the rich inner workings of the world of flamenco. To me, Yaelisa is the matriatch of flamenco in the Bay Area. She not only understands flamenco but also understands how to teach it- challenging students to study and master not only choreographies but also the compas, the history, the palmas and the roots that flamenco has grown from. Her classes kick ass- and her choreographies even moreso. Yaelisa has mentored countless flamenco dancers who have now begun to thrive as teachers in their own right. I respect her community-building skills and her commitment to her students and fellow artists in the Bay Area. And on a personal note, I have gone from being a clueless, self-conscious beginner to embrace curiosity, dedication and joy as a true student of this art form. Caminos Flamencos performances are thrilling to watch and even more thrilling to perform in. The community that Caminos Flamencos attracts is infectious in its love for this art form. I'm so grateful to have stumbled into flamenco as a result of the Yaelisa's memorable 'Boy with a Coin' music video almost 10 years ago now. Keep it coming!
Studio where you feel home with warm and professional dancers! Want to learn every day with them! Thank you guys for putting your soul in business!
Nikolai was an amazing instructor. He made me feel comfortable and confident as we danced to various rhythms with different movements. His professionalism, dedication, and passion make him an ideal instructor who gives 100% to his students. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who's looking for a high-caliber professional dancer and instructor.
Dalila came and performed for 15 minutes at a High School assembly. She arrived early to set up and check out the space and stayed to watch the whole show. The students loved her. She was very professional and fun. She worked the whole room and gave students the opportunity to get up and dance with her. She was very nice and a really talented dancer.
Samba Sensation was amazing at my wedding reception!!! Their show is the first thing my guests bring up whenever they talk about our wedding. It really got the party started and kept the energy really high. The costume were very elaborate and dancers were gorgeous! Well felt like we were in Rio. Shaunte was my contact and really great to work with in planning the details. She always responded right away and was good about checking in with me. My wife left me with the responsibility of hiring entertainment and she went over details that I didn't really think about like coverage options and colors. As it got closer and things got busier, I really appreciated that she took the initiative to coordinate with the DJ and get a contact number from me ahead of time since I didn't have a wedding planner. On the day of my reception I was able to enjoy myself and my night. Thank you!!!
Every dance job I've got to participate in I enjoy how much I get to learn and grow. The professionalism on every gig has helps me to be more prepared for any future gigs.
Carolé is a force of a woman. Not only is she a professional actor, dancer, stand-up comedian, athlete, she is so humble. She taught me some wonderful acting lessons and then I decided to go watch her do some stand-up comedy in a show and she was hilarious. You can tell she's a professional dancer by the way she moves, I'll come see her dance soon. Come and take lessons from her. She's mesmerizing.
I am an artistic belly dancer who loves to perform to traditional and alternative music. You may request a music genre or song for me to interpret through dance. I can make your event personal and memorable. There is a lot of spontaneity in my dance which makes it feel alive to me and to the audience.

No toxic black henna! No chemicals! For tattooing, I am careful and clean. I follow OSHA bloodborne pathogen standards, use sealed-sterilized tips and tubes and new sterile needles every time.
