We had Dan for our wedding first dance lessons. From the get-go, Dan had a very detailed, yet easy to follow instructions. We don't have any dancing background, yet he put so much trust in us to perform some amazing moves and created a unique routine. Everyone at our wedding were thoroughly impressed with our dance. Thank you Dan!

Erin is amazing! I wanted to up my dancing game, and I searched the internet to find someone to help me do that. After reaching out to Erin through Thumbtack, she responded back very quickly and answered all of my questions well. Halfway into the first session, I knew I made an excellent choice for Erin to be my dance instructor. She’s friendly, has a great sense of humor, is articulate, is fun... and this gal seriously knows how to dance and how to teach it. I felt immmediately comfortable with Erin, which is super important when you’re learning how to do some new moves! I happily purchased a package of 6 classes with her - and now after finishing 4 of them, I’m sure I’ll continue with more lessons with her after that. Learning to dance with Erin is an excellent choice. Highly recommended!

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.

I was nervous about beginning dance lessons, but after a few lessons with Desiree I feel comfortable and confident dancing with anyone. Desiree is professional and very enthusiastic, and she made our lessons really fun! I had a great experience with her and recommend it to everyone!

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.

Daniel has been a great instructor. Love the way he has put interesting dance combinations together for the two dances we wanted to learn - swing and rumba. He is very patient and breaks down each new dance step so that it is easy to learn. It is so convenient and comfortable to have him teach these dance lessons in our home.

"First Dance" lessons with choreography assistance less than 2 weeks out from our wedding. We started out with 2 and extended it to 3 lessons. Joseph was really helpful instructing the two of us that have no background in dancing. In 1 hour we had the basis for a first dance at our wedding. In 2 hours he got us better at that and added flourishes. In 3 hours he worked on the entire production. He knows what he's doing and has fun doing it.

Walter is a wonderful dance instructor. When I started learning dance, I was a complete novice. Walter structured my lessons in a sequential fashion that gradually built my skills to what some label "silver" level enjoyment. I especially like the way Walter took MY goals into consideration. I did not wish to compete, but to become a better than average dancer, focused mostly on smooth dance and some light rhythm, so that I might enjoy social dance opportunities. My weekly dance lessons have become the highlight of my week! 💃

I've been taking private lessons in ballet and jazz from Zaire for about four months now, and I can confidently say that this was the best decision that I made this year! My only previous dance experience was five years ago, a beginner's class that my high school offered for physical education. Early this year, I decided that I wanted to try out for the dance team at my college, hoping I could train hard enough to prepare for auditions in September. Zaire has been the perfect dance teacher to help me work toward this goal. Every lesson, she pushes me more to perfect my technique, build up my stamina, and to really perform each movement. She works me VERY hard, but I've gotten in so much better shape and can see and feel improvement in every aspect of my dancing. Zaire instructs with the perfect balance of being tough with high expectations while keeping things fun and creating an environment in which working hard doesn't feel like work at all. She is a beautiful person who truly cares about her students! I am so blessed to have her as a dance teacher, and I recommend her to absolutely anyone who wants to experience the joy in dancing!

Olivia gave me the best introduction to Pilates ever! Having never tried it before, I was very nervous about taking a group class so when I saw a decently priced opportunity for an individual or duet class, I decided to try it out. Olivia was fantastic. She explained thoroughly what we were doing and why. I'm the type of person who prefers to know why. And I'm really glad she took the time to speak with me. Olivia geared our lessons to focus on what each I needed and wanted from this experience. She was constantly showing me what I was doing right or wrong and explaining why it should be done a certain way. One of the main reasons I wanted private lessons and not a class was because I was afraid of hurting myself by doing things incorrectly. I've been known to jump into things before without thinking them through. It has been amazing to have someone who takes the time to make sure you are exercising correctly and taking care of your body. I'm incredibly grateful to have taken classes with Olivia. I pay attention to little details on my body that I never noticed before, and I can see a difference in the way I carry myself and in how my body feels. I highly recommend working with Olivia if you have the opportunity. Thank you, Olivia!
