Erin gave us dance lessons for our wedding first dance. Even at the last minute, Erin was easy to communicate and schedule with. She managed our time efficiently and clarified anything she felt was unclear during the dance lessons. Erin had a great, friendly, upbeat attitude from beginning to end and made us feel comfortable quickly. Highly recommend!
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.
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
Emily Coles has been our dance coach for nearly a decade! She is amazing to work with whether you want to learn a dance for your wedding, want to be better at social dancing, or are getting ready for a competition. She has trained my wife and I for all of the above. What makes Emily so wonderful is that she always focuses on the positive so that you never feel like you cannot do something. She is very encouraging and warm. I, myself, am a teacher, and I have to say that her style is really fully accessible and wonderful.
Desiree is a pleasure to work with! She is very patient with beginners and good at breaking down the steps so that a person with very little experience can learn in a fun and low pressure way. She is also pretty flexible with with where the lesson can take place. We would definitely recommend her and are considering taking her group dance class after our wedding.
My fiancee and I were a bit nervous about our first dance lesson with Joseph (and also rudely 5 minutes late) but he was very gracious, easy going and funny, so we were quickly put at ease. By the end of the hour we had gone over the five dance elements and two basics, and were feeling pretty good! We will definitely be back for more lessons! Joseph is highly recommended if you want to improve your skills and have fun doing it. :)
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!!!
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.
I take private lessons with Sarah. I have learnt so much in the amount of time I have spent learning from her! She is such a fun teacher, and I really love going to my lessons. She's got a very keen eye for improving technique which I love. Thanks so much Sarah! :)
Monica Santana was fantastic. We requested a lesson for our wedding dance and she promptly followed up, had listened to our wedding song before, and gave us a great lesson. She also followed up with written instructions that helped us a ton.
I would recommend her to anyone looking for dance lessons. Such a great teacher.
Ava is a great dance teacher! I have been taking both group and private salsa classes with her in mission. She is very clear and good at paying invidious attention to everyone and calling out exactly what you need. Thank you Ava for the awesome few months, and thank you thumbtack for such great teacher!!
My partner and I took dance lessons from Justin for about a year and a half. In the course of 20+ lessons, he took our rudimentary understanding of dance to a competitive level. I always felt like he was sensitive to our comfort level and made very complex styles and moves accessible to us. Few teachers have an understanding of club, international and competitive dance styles in the way that Justin does. He is a gifted, patient and extremely fun teacher.
