They exceeded our expectations. She is an outstanding teacher. We are still receiving dance lessons. Bob & Carolyn Forston
No one has had any dance lessons yet (!), but she communicates a welcomed professionalism. She responds quickly and has a genuine enthusiasm for what she does.
Bryan is brilliant! My son has been taking break dancing lessons with Bryan for less then a year & he loves it! He looks forward to going because Bryan makes it fun for him which is awesome because my son is only 4 :) He's also very patient in teaching him new dance moves & has great technique. I know my son is in good hands when he's with Bryan & I couldn't have asked for a better dance teacher!
It does not get better than these guys. We left our dance lessons till a week before wedding but still had high ambitions ( go figure) and somehow these two pros (not just in dancing but in kindness and communication...and realism) helped us achieve our dream dance in a realistic and effortless way. As a bride to have a professional actually behave professionally and take a burden off your shoulders and not just meet but exceed your high expectations the way they did is something I will forever be grateful for.
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!
For my first salsa and latin-dance classes I went to weekly classes in a studio in Hollywood. I felt like I didn't get enough attention from the teachers because there were over 15 students in the class. I decided to try private classes so I registered on Thumbtack because a friend recommended it to me for private classes. I got a quote from Tibor and I gave it a try. I was surprised how much I got better in a short amount of time just due the fact of taking private classes. Tibor gave me his undivided attention and taught me the right technique and he helped me to help myself. I learned how to get the right mindset. His professionalism speaks for himself. The only problem was that it was kind of far away from where I live and I wanted to learn Cuban salsa and not L.A. Salsa, which he was not able to teach me since he's a professional L.A. Style Salsa Dancer. All in all I'm really happy and satisfied with his passionate art of teaching. I really felt his love for dance in every lesson.
My experience with Galit has been amazing and incredible to me since the first day she taught me in dance class. She's patient and She'd let me know what I need to work on. What I love about Galit the most is her positve personality and how she make the class so fun. She have inspired me so much not just in dancing but how she love helping people and making a difference in the world. I appreciate her for always pushing me off my limit and for always believing in me and that's what we all look for a Dance Teacher.

Working With Sam Allen was the most amazing experience. Sam gave me private Hip Hop dance lessons and was phenomenal. He was encouraging, patient, and pushed me to my highest potential. Sam was accommodating, professional, and made me feel like a super star. He teaches at your pace and to your ability. I learned so much and had so much fun at the same time. I highly recommend Sam to anyone of all ages and levels of experience. There is no better teacher out there.
Adrienne is an amazing dance instructor. Of course, she can teach you the basics, but what sets her apart is her ability to recognize your strengths and weaknesses and works with each. She clearly understands the nuance of dancing, foot work, weight shifts and timing, and how important they are to become the kind of dancer you want to be, should you want to compete professionally or just feel comfortable on any dance floor. She she has the ability to explain clearly and concisely what she wants you to do and how to get there. Just take one dance lesson with her, and you will never want anyone else to teach you. I guarantee it.
I greatly enjoyed my dance lesson with Darren. I'm a very shy person and have social anxiety, but Darren made me feel very comfortable. I felt like I learned SO MUCH in one hour. He was able to provide critiques while still being nice and encouraging. He was not at all intimidating. I think that's what makes him a great teacher. I had to quit our lessons due to personal reasons but, for sure, once I get things in order I'll be taking more dance lessons from him in the future. Thanks for such a good experience!
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.
Having had the opportunity to be a student of dance at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Pasadena CA., I can honestly say that JD Davis is an outstanding professional dance teacher who loves what he does! JD works patiently with his clients and gets to know them on a personal level in order to work with them more effectively. He is passionate about his craft and knowledge of dance. JD helps his clients learn and fine tune the choreography of any genre of dance be it, Ballroom, Fox Trot, Swing, Samba, Merengue, Salsa, to name just a few. JD was often requested as a teacher at our studio as he is approachable, friendly, professional, respectful,encouraging and hard working. What I loved most about JD was his sincere care and desire to make each of his students achieve their dance goals. JD is a promoter of good health and well being. He often encourages his students to set high standards for themselves and he lets his students know he will be right next to them every step of the way. If you ever see him dance you might easily understand why we, his students, all wanted to look like him on the floor! Smooth, with that touch of perfection! So Yes, I highly recommend JD Davis as your next dance teacher and someone you can trust to be available, punctual, and someone who eventually becomes unforgettable and helps you attain a greater sense of pride in your future endeavors involved in the realm of dance. ------------Sandra D. Martinez-Baxter -Teacher for L.A.U.S.D
If you're searching for a fun, fresh, and exiting time, Samantha's classes are fantastic! She has such a wonderful energy, very welcoming and positive! Her approach to dance and fitness is perfectly balanced, challenging, motivating, thoughtful and intelligent. Returning to dance after 15 years, I feel lucky to have Samantha as my new teacher. She is great! If you are looking for a fun class with positively encouraging people, come and join Samantha and us!
I've booked Ally for a couple 1-on-1 classes and will continue to do so! She has such a fun energy, is soooo patient and encouraging. I'm really shy and a bad dancer, but the way Ally teaches really is empowering. She can break down things in a way that is understandable, to even those who are both musically and physically coordinately challenged. Also, I really like what she brings to the table. She has a lot of different playlists/music styles to introduce you too, and gives you a very broad approach on to dancing so that you can comfortably experiment with a lot of things. She has a lot of integrity as an artist, so she won't recycle other people's dances. Instead, she'll work with you to not only learn the basics, but do something fresh, fun, and unique. You'll never walk from her lessons feeling like you did someone else's work. Rather you'll get the feeling of accomplishment of doing something new, and it almost feels like yours. She really helps you connect you with that budding artist inside of you! Really, she has a fun attitude, and you can learn a lot of life things from her through dance, and she's someone who is a wonderful listener. She can provide you some guidance on and off the dance floor. I really recommend Ally for a well-rounded experience. I know you'll love her as much as I do!
Kevin was an awesome instructor for me and my husband! We both have little experience on the dance floor and Kevin was able to create a simple yet elegant First Dance ballroom routine that we could learn within weeks of our wedding. He gave us tips on posture, frame and how to relax. We loved his enthusiasm for dance and would highly recommend him to anyone.

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. Everything! I love working with the kids, and seeing them grow each week as dancers and as people.
