We had Dan for our wedding first dance lessons. From the get-go, Dan had a very detailed, yet easy to follow instructions. We don't have any dancing background, yet he put so much trust in us to perform some amazing moves and created a unique routine. Everyone at our wedding were thoroughly impressed with our dance. Thank you Dan!

Erin is amazing! I wanted to up my dancing game, and I searched the internet to find someone to help me do that. After reaching out to Erin through Thumbtack, she responded back very quickly and answered all of my questions well. Halfway into the first session, I knew I made an excellent choice for Erin to be my dance instructor. She’s friendly, has a great sense of humor, is articulate, is fun... and this gal seriously knows how to dance and how to teach it. I felt immmediately comfortable with Erin, which is super important when you’re learning how to do some new moves! I happily purchased a package of 6 classes with her - and now after finishing 4 of them, I’m sure I’ll continue with more lessons with her after that. Learning to dance with Erin is an excellent choice. Highly recommended!

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.

We just finished our first dance lesson and we are so excited with the simple yet beautiful moves we were taught. She took time to explain clearly and demonstrate everything. We have a couple of more lessons scheduled and are looking forward to them!

My church wanted to do a program of three Latin Dance lessons over the course of a month. We looked for somebody to do this and we found the most marvelous teacher --- Ruth Caspary of Latin Connection Dance. First of all, she was really professional and easy to plan with. And she had good suggestions for the planning. We were able to fit in bachata, salsa, and American tango. Super! Second, she came on site (we have a great space with a wooden floor) with her equipment and music and was ready to teach. Third, she is a super teacher. She accounted for each person's abilities and was energetic and generous with her time. We all learned a lot and had great fun, too. Last, but not least, she is social and friendly, a good conversationalist as well as a great teacher. There's no question who we'd go to in the future.

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.

Jasmine transformed dancing for me. Before taking a few lessons with her, dancing was a huge source of anxiety for me -- I avoided it at all costs. Jasmine helped me find the beat, offered me reassurance about the learning process, and eventually gave me a repertoire of moves to draw on. I danced at my wedding thanks to Jasmine. Also, she is super reliable, punctual, kind, and professional. I recommend her very, very highly. I am so thankful!

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!!!

Walter is a wonderful dance instructor. When I started learning dance, I was a complete novice. Walter structured my lessons in a sequential fashion that gradually built my skills to what some label "silver" level enjoyment. I especially like the way Walter took MY goals into consideration. I did not wish to compete, but to become a better than average dancer, focused mostly on smooth dance and some light rhythm, so that I might enjoy social dance opportunities. My weekly dance lessons have become the highlight of my week! 💃

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 grew up with the flavor of Latin music and dance surrounding me, and I want to help you find your own personal flare on the dance floor. I will help you build your strength as a dancer, showing you important body isolations and stretching techniques, while also helping you understand the fundamentals to partner-work and personal styling shines needed to social dance. More importantly, I will help you understand the rhythmic structure in Latin music, so you can feel the music as you dance. My clients range from one-on-one private lessons, partner lessons, and group lessons. I teach styles from salsa to bachata, merengue, kizomba, etc.

    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.
