Introduction: Fascinating Rhythm Dance School was founded in 1977 and offers private lessons in all the Ballroom and Latin dances. I have developed my own unique method of teaching developed from over 20 years of experience. I emphasize style and technique and having fun! The most popular dances now are Salsa and Swing, but Tango and Foxtrot are close behind. But we teach Waltz, Cha cha, Hustle, Rumba, Merengue, Country Western, and more. A single hour is $50, but you really can't learn much in an hour, so we offer a package of four hours for only $180, a savings of $20. We also specialize in choreography for the most important "first dance" at your wedding. For weddings, choreography is an additional one time fee of $25 extra. Our lessons are a full sixty minute hour and are totally private!! No one else is watching you. A package of four hours is only $180, same price for 1 or 2 people. From the moment you step onto the dance floor you will move with poise, confidence, and a smile. If getting married, we promise to make your first dance memorable, even if you have two left feet! It is the most rewarding experience for me to see people's lives change through learning how to dance. The shy, introverted come out of their shell and the outgoing have an outlet to express themselves. Self esteem rises, posture improves, and over all health is affected positively. This is very satisfying to see and their happiness is contagious. I learn more from my students about life, as I teach them about dance.

Wedding Dance Lessons

We loved working with Marge to perfect our first dance at our wedding. It was a terrific experience and a ton of fun! She clearly knows her stuff, and taught us an unbelievable amount in just a few lessons. I highly recommend booking a few lessons!

Marge is the sweetest person and I’m glad me and my girlfriend took salsa lessons with her!! We took four lessons as beginners and she was very kind, patient, and just a great teacher. Highly recommend Marge!

Wedding Dance Lessons

Had an amazing experience with Marge working on our first dance for our wedding. We had four lessons at her house. From lesson one she helped put my now husband at ease as he learned how to foxtrot. Our wedding dance was a hit and the lessons were great!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I compare my prices with all the dance schools in my area of the San Francisco Bay Area. I work out of my home, so I can offer a much better price, because I have no overhead. I don't need to add on $15 to pay for the rental of an off site dance studio, and I have no expenses for travel time.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When meeting a new dance student, I tell them about my dance training and history of teaching. I ask them about what they want to learn, their desires and goals. Is it for a wedding, fun, exercise, or simply to make new friends? I ask if they have taken dance before. All of the questions help me design a dance class customized just for them and the goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I started dance lessons at age 4 in ballet, tap, and acrobatics. My mom was a profession dancer. Dance has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. I drifted away from dance in my early teen years, but found my way back learning "partner" dancing...all the Ballroom dances, such as Swing, Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, and so much more. It is SO much fun!
