Erin helped teach my husband and myself an amazing dance for our 'First Dance.' The whole experience was perfect, and I loved what she put together for us. My husband and I both want to continue to see Erin for more dance lessons. She's the best and I highly recommend.

If you're looking for Latin or Ballroom dance instruction I highly recommend Jeremy and Carolyn. I've been training with them for 2 years and have only great things to say. They bring amazing technical knowledge and expertise, and wonderful performance skills. They are also personable and fun! And as a successful, professional competitive couple they offer experience you won't find every day. Do it! :-)

Our session with Jessica was fantastic. We only had time for 1 lesson before our big day and she was able to help us learn a few new moves to add comfort level on our first dance. She’s very knowledgeable and seems to be able to teach dance at all different levels and styles. She also made us very comfortable and that was important so we didn’t have to hold back on the new moves

I know Emily from riding AIDS lifecycle with her a few years back. I reached out to her about 2 months prior to my wedding for First Dance lessons with my fiancé. We have weekly lessons at a studio space on Missouri street in SF. She is easy to work with and schedule lessons. Her prices are very reasonable and she even donates $10 of every lesson to a charity close to her that you pick! (we chose ALC) Emily is great. She is very knowledgeable and very aware of teaching same-sex partner dancing. I knew she would be a valuable instructor for that reason and refused to go to a stock dance studio. We have choreographed an entire song, and every week we get better and better. The hour spent with Emily is full of smiles, laughter and overall great time. My partner and I look forward to dance lessons every week! She is a joy to be around and very helpful. I highly recommend Emily to anyone looking for dance lessons! (We even drive up from Palo Alto to see her!)

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!!

Marge is amazing! She knows what she's doing and what you need to focus on once she sees you dancing. She has lots of experience under her belt. She knows more than 15 different dances and loves to dance and have a great time. From just 2 salsa lessons I'm loving it!

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.

Freddy is fabulous! We hired her for a mom / son dance for his bar mitzvah. This was not a typical slow dance. We asked her to copy the choreography from our favorite video. She showed up at the studio having already broken down the choreography for us. Then she had us go through some warmup dancing and started the choreography. She was incredibly responsive to our needs. I wanted the dance broken down for me a certain way so I could nail the steps. She was supportive of my son, who had never taken a dance lesson. Within the time we booked, we nailed the dance and video'd the choreography. Cannot say enough good things about Freddy. She's upbeat, friendly and makes you feel welcome in a dance studio.

"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.

Bertus was very quick to reply to our inquiry about dance lessons. We've only met once so far but I was very happy with our first session! He was very down to earth and really listened to the ideas we had for our wedding dance. I felt very comfortable with him right from the start! Highly recommend.

The best instructor with the best energy! I love her Kardio Caliente classes because you can dance and burn a lot of calories at the same time. Also, her Cedeno Dance teams; Lady Styyle and Reggateon are super fun! You get to perform on different events and festivals in Bay Area, burn calories and learn awesome choreographies. I highly recommended #FernandaCedenoDanceandfitness

This was my 60th birthday party and I wanted it to be a blast. Danielle danced with partner, Dan. They were the hit of the party! They did a Latin dance performance, a dance lesson and got the party going. I would highly recommend them as they entertained and were super fun on the dance floor while we all danced!

Taking dance lessons with Ken was such a marvelous experience! He hosted his lessons at his home atop a hill overlooking the Bay, which really set the stage. We had taken dance lessons before, but felt awkward and out-of-sync trying to mimic a series of "fancy" moves. Instead, Ken started us off by making sure we were comfortable with the fundamentals and built up from there. He is a very patient and accommodating instructor, who worked around our schedule. He listened very closely to our feedback and gave us a completely customized experience. His experience, professionalism, and overall friendliness are what make him a superstar instructor. We can't wait to showcase our newly acquired skills during our first dance!

Nikolai is my Latin dance teacher and I have been dancing with him since January 2018. In a short amount of time, I have improved my dancing so much that we competed at the San Francisco Open in April 2018 on the Open Silver category earning 1st places in all single dances (chacha, samba, rumba, pasodoble and jive). Nik is an expert dance teacher who has great knowledge and enthusiasm. He is patient and gives just the right level of instruction and correction. I enjoyed every dance lesson with Nik and I highly recommend him.

Kurt Senser is an amazing instructor! He has transformed my dancing from all over the place and wobbly to precise and smooth. I've been taking private lessons with him for about 2 years now. I started out with Country 2 Step, then went to West Coast Swing and am now learning Night Club 2 Step. One of the things that has helped me so much in working with Kurt is that he can be technical in his teaching. This is what I needed. I need to know where my foot is now and where it needs to be. For those ladies who think they need a partner to take private dance lessons, don't do it! Go by yourself and/or let your partner take a separate lesson with Kurt. You will see amazing results! I carry Kurt's cards with me in my boot bag and tell everyone who compliments me on my improved dancing, who made it happen. Kurt has a great personality and no matter what your skill level, you will feel comfortable and look forward to your next dance lesson. I know I do!

    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.
