Mark taught my husband and I our first dance for our multicultural wedding. My husband and I had no prior dance training, and are both definitely the "wallflower" type. Thinking of the first dance caused both of us a lot of anxiety. Until Mark came in and changed our whole world and whole perception of how fun dance can be. Mark was always patient, an outstanding teacher, and truly made our first dance special. Our wedding was a multi-day event with numerous ceremonies and traditions from families of two distinct cultures. But dance lessons with Mark were a welcome respite from the hectic planning of the wedding. Mark taught us more than just dancing, he taught my husband and I to establish "connection", teamwork, and trust through dance! Now, my husband and I love to dance and it has become part of our lives, all thanks to Mark. I highly recommend Mark. He is an excellent teacher and you will love every minute of your dance lessons!
My husband and I wanted to take dance lessons for a wedding we will be attending. Shannon Allen has been great! She has worked with our schedules, been on time, has emailed me with tips and suggestions, and she has made this fun for a "nervous" dancer :)
Jared is a fantastic dance teacher. I've taken salsa lessons with him. The thing that stands out for me is his ability to communicate the specific things you need to work on in a way that makes sense and that you can understand and begin practicing immediately.
Had a blast learning how to salsa with Jenn. She explained the steps thoroughly, she had a great personality and made our dinner party that much more fun!
Artemi is an excellent dance teacher/coach. He takes the time to listen to his student's needs and goals. From that he bases his lesson plans. His private and group lessons are taught in segments and build on those segments so a beginner or advanced student can learn and grow. As a professional dancer, he has the knowledge and talent to work with his students on proper technique, physical strength, choreography, musicality and much more. He does this in a caring, supportive and fun way. But he also can be strict especially if preparing a student for a showcase or competition. Artemi is trained in American and International Latin and Ballroom dances. He also performs and competes proefssional with his partner pro dancer Erica Arnold. This helps him keep on top of his profession to then share with his students. I have grown as a person and dancer because of Artemi. He has helped me physically and mentally in my life. I look forward to my lessons whether it is to focus on technique, strengthen my core and/or just dance. As such, I would highly recommend Artemi Okunev.
Amalia takes the time to go through the steps of salsa, so you can go at your own pace and be sure you learn correctly. Very sweet woman and great teacher!
I have had privates with Cherise for a few years now, she teaches me a combo of flow and yin which is great because I get to sweat a little and also work on my flexibility. Our classes have built in difficulty as I've gotten better and I love the music she plays.
Great teacher, very professional very recomanded,
Kevin is fun to work with and knows his dance moves! My fiance and I really enjoy our dance lessons with him!
I've been teaching dance for 13 years now. I teach private lessons, and I'm looking to expand to a studio and have a dance company.
Hi there! I am teaching dance to all levels. I specialize in feeling good at the end of the lesson while still building up a good sweat. I love teaching men and women as well as partner dancing. I do fun choreography for weddings and other special events you may have coming up! I love working with people, understanding their level and expanding that level. For the ladies, if you're looking to build your dancing stamina in heels, I'm your woman. Have a great day, and I look forward to hearing from you!
I create unique special Wedding Dances. I have been teaching for over 22 years, I also edit amazing music mixes and I love working with all types of people.
My work stands out because I accept kids as young as 12 months into my studio. I also don't focus on recitals as much as I focus on making dance fun for the kids. I instill the basic rules and discipline of dance, while still allowing the kids to be kids and just have fun.
I'm now based in LA after living/performing in NYC for 5 years and being taught by many Broadway professionals. Since I moved, I've been looking to share my knowledge with aspiring young artists!

This enables practitioners to attain awareness and inner stillness in motion.

Hello! I am a ballet and jazz teacher who specializes in the growth and training of "mini" dancers, ages two years to six years old. I have over ten years' dance experience and five years of teaching experience from ages 2 years to 18 years old. I enjoy teaching and molding minds! I believe that the love of dance starts as soon as a child sets foot in their "first position". I love being a part of the growth of a new dancer.
I am a professional dancer in LA but originally from Boston. I am trained in hip-hop and house but also train in popping, locking, waacking and more. I've been professionally dancing in LA for about 3 years now. I do everything from jobs, videos, and performances to freestyle battles and sessions. From back home to here in LA, I have worked with people of all ages. Kids starting at about 6 years old all the way up to people in their late 20s. I love to teach people foundation and vocabulary, so they can learn how to make it their own within their freestyle. I love teaching and love to see growth in whomever I am sharing all I have learned with.
