My fiance and I signed up for dance lessons with Erin and we couldn't be happier. I started out with zero background in dance and after only a couple lessons my fiance and I have our first dance choreographed. I'm actually excited to dance at my wedding which is saying a lot. Erin is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable right away. I would highly recommend her!

Marge was very friendly and understanding making it easy for a couple of non-dancers to begin learning ballroom dancing for the first time ever. We only had 4 hours with her since we decided on choreographing a ballroom dance so late in the game, but she was able to bring us up to speed quickly and professionally. She would get sidetracked sometimes and begin telling us stories but it was charming and she didn't stay off track for too long. Her teaching style was firm but patient at the same time and the lessons were always fun. Our dance turned out fantastic, especially considering the short amount of time she had to teach it to us and the fact that we had no prior dance training at all.

I selected Emily for private salsa lessons (after having not ballroom danced since high school). We started with a smattering of dance styles to warm up. As part of being a great teacher, Emily was a really good listener. So together, we discovered that although I'd sought lessons thinking I wanted to learn salsa, it turns out I most enjoyed West Coast Swing. I'm going to my first West Coast Swing social event tonight. Thanks, Emily, for giving me the foundation to make this happen!

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.

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.

I went to a solo introductory class with Tara and she was very professional and understanding of what I was looking for, she introduced me to different forms of ballroom dance and allowed me to choose those that I liked and was comfortable with. I have to admit to an amazing first experience and signed up for more classes right away.

Desiree choreographed my first wedding dance. I showed up as a man without any rhythm or even the slightest interest in dancing. I thought the entire process would be one of the worst experiences of my life. Desiree not only had me enjoying dance on day 1, but I've been taking dance lessons for the last 7 months as a result of her inspiration. She managed to teach me two choreographed dances (Tango and Rhumba) in only a handful of lessons. Desiree is an excellent teacher, clearly explains and demonstrates moves, stays positive at all times, and keeps you motivated as a student. Cannot recommend her highly enough. Our guests were shocked and blown away by the choreography, and that was with someone with no prior dance experience. You will not be disappointed!

"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.

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!

Jessica is super encouraging, understanding, and enthusiastic about what she does. I have always wanted to learn how to dance; however, my biggest barrier is my fear to just let loose. Jessica is super patient with me. She teaches me new moves and provides the space to try them out. I'm still in the process of getting over my fear but with each lesson, I feel myself feeling a little more confident than the lesson before. Jessica definitely does a good job of pushing me to get better without making me feel uncomfortable.

Joann is a wonderful knowledgeable piano instructor. I stared my son in weekly piano lessons with Joann at age 6, last year. I was very impressed with her ability to teach the basics in a way he understood and connected to. He likes and respects her and is eager to learn. Joann is very relaxed, patient, and positive with him. I am very pleased! I would definitely recommend her to other potential students, young or old.

I hired Paula to teach a swing dance lesson during my boyfriend's 30th birthday party and the whole process could not have been smoother. Paula was super flexible, easy to book with and had great follow through. She arrived perfectly on time for the lesson and was a true delight. My boyfriend has taken tons of swing dancing classes over the years and he said that she was the best teacher he's ever had. She spent time helping every couple in our group and her experience really showed. I cannot possibly recommend her more highly!

I have been learning dance from Sonly for more than 10 years. She is a great dancer ( simply a professional dander in my eye as I see at dance show/contests) and at a same time a great teacher. Her passion for teaching is so strong that you are inspired to learn and to improve (I was a person who was too shy to dance when I started with Sonly and become one who has good confidence of myself). What makes her exceptional is her insight of music and lead you to dance with understanding of music. I am also very impressed by her teaching ability that she sees exactly and precisely in each individual what to work on. She is also sensitive to feelings of students and coach in way you feel comfortable. I love Sonly!!! Trust me, you will lover her to be your teacher!!!

Dancing is a passion of mine. I do hip hop dancing and i choreograph my own pieces. I would love to be your teacher and after first class if you dont like what i do you are guaranteed that that specific class will be free. We would be working on different aspects of hip hop and learning some of my choreography and doing freestyle to boost up your confidence in doing your own thing. This experience would be a learning process for me as much as it would be for you.
