I just started taking private swing dance lessons with Erin and she is wonderful to work with. She has a great practice space near Forest Hill station, that has a large parking lot as well. I am by no means a naturally gifted dancer, but she is patient and very good at breaking down the steps and explaining them in ways that I can understand. I am so excited to continue working with here!

In short, Caroline is a fantastic teacher and you should absolutely take lessons from her if you're interested in learning Salsa. Caroline is warm, kind, patient, and understanding. I confessed immediately to her that I had "two left feet" and no prior dance experience. This was no obstacle to her. Our lesson included a lot of rhythm work. Though it was my first lesson, I'm already feeling more confident. To top things off, she gave me "homework" to ensure I could continue teaching myself some muscle memory. It is very clear she is very gifted as both a dancer and a teacher!

She's an experienced teacher--warm, friendly and unintimidating. (Did I mention that she cracks jokes? It takes the edge off, which is a godsend for a nervous beginner like me.) She helped me work out dance moves for my wedding. Now I'm taking personal rumba lessons. I also enjoy Metronome, the dance studio where she teaches, which is in an old, Italian social club in Potrero. I recommend Emily for anyone who wants to take dance lessons, from salsa to ballroom.

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!

I had 4 Salsa lessons with Marge so far. This is not my first time dancing Salsa, which makes things progress quickly. She has a great way of explaining steps and rhythm, so that it is easy for me to follow and remember. Also, she is very friendly and goes the extra mile to help and advise me. I look forward to more lessons with her!

    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 love having lessons with Sarah. She really explains things so clearly so I can understand. I’m a competitive dancer, and she’s helped me with posture and styling and many other things needed to perform. I was able to get much more info out of her than I would having a male on my subjects. She’s passionate and patient! I highly recommend her!

    Sam is a great teacher and a master of tap dance. You could probably find teachers for swing dance, Sasa or Samba easily, but not with Tap Dance. Sam is the one. My husband and I decided to do some tap dance for our wedding banquet but we had no experience with tap dancing. We came up with this idea less than a month before the wedding so we weren't really sure whether we would be able to make it. It all changed with Sam's help and instructions. Sam did a great job teaching us from the basics and quickly come up with a choreography that works with the song we'd like to dance to. After 2-3 lessons, we were able to manage the dance - all thanks to Sam's great mastery of tap dancing, careful instructions and patience. Thanks so much Sam - for the patience and wonderful teaching!

    Eddi's energy is highly encouraging and made me feel like moving a grooving right away. He was super enthusiastic and extremely patient. Awesome playlist! I would highly recommend Eddi to anyone who wants to learn how to Salsa!

    About

    I have a student-centered approach, which involves being attentive to how the person learns and the caring for focus of their intentions -- what they hope to learn. I've been teaching private guitar lessons 'formally' since 2001, shortly after graduating from the Musicians Institute's professional guitar and recording arts programs. During the last six years, I have also been an instructor of music theory for audio engineering students as well as for students of psychoacoustics at the Globe Institute in San Francisco. This is college-level music theory presented in a condensed format with specific applications in mind. Myriads of nationalities, cultures, ages, genders and musical backgrounds accompany the people who make up those classes, and they have helped me develop the skill for relating this material to all manner of people simultaneously. As a result, my one-on-one classes are even more enriched. My goal is to help you reach your goals in the most simple and joyful manner. The basics of what I offer are as follows: * Guitar -- Most Styles, Beginner and Intermediate * Recording Software -- Logic, Ableton, Native Instruments, Etc. * Music Theory -- Beginner and Intermediate * Ear Training * Composition * Songwriting * Audio Engineering/Production -- Beginner * Inner Music Theory -- A Psychoacoustic/Sound Healing Approach * Piano -- Beginner I also offer a generalized musician package in which any or all of what I teach is thoughtfully organized for your goals. Included are basic vocal coaching, percussion rudiments and loads of other pertinent basics.

    My goal is to be able to get my students comfortable dancing at social events. I help students get in tune with their bodies and the music. Groove, musicality, creativity, and expression are core values I teach. I am able to teach choreography and freestyle.
