Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have ranked as a Top Thumbtack Pro continuously since 2017, and I received the award for Best of Thumbtack in 2015 & 2016! Please read my many 5-star reviews to hear from my satisfied clients. I am a dance artist, choreographer, performer, dance educator and dance fitness professional. I have an extensive professional background in many forms of dance, movement and fitness (ballet, modern and contemporary dance,hip hop, jazz dance, ballroom, swing dance, social partner dance, dance fitness, Zumba, yoga, pilates, children and senior dance, flash mobs and choreography). I've been teaching dance and fitness for over 2 decades. I trained at top level schools, as well as performed professionally as a dancer for 3 decades. I've been choreographing for groups, solos and duets for 2 decades. I have a huge passion and enthusiasm for dance, and I love sharing it with my students. I am available for private and group instruction in dance styles including swing dance, ballroom dance, ballet, hip hop, contemporary, jazz, dance fitness and line dancing. I can create exciting choreography tailored to your level (beginners through advanced) for individuals or groups. I create dances for weddings, having worked with over 130 couples on their first dances, as well as father/daughter, mother/son and for the wedding party. I have also created surprise dance flash mobs for various events, and over 75 works for professional dance companies, festivals and performance venues as well as training programs. I also provide professional dance entertainment tailored to your specific event, whether you need flappers performing a Charleston dance for your 1920's theme party, country western dancers doing the 2-step along with line dancing instruction for your barn dance, or 1940's style swing dancers doing the lindy-hop and jitterbug. Adding this kind of live entertainment to your event will make it exciting, engaging for guests and unforgettable!! I love to dance and to inspire the inner dancer that lives in every person. I am totally joyful when dancing, and it is my greatest pleasure to spark that joy in others. I also love seeing the positive transformation that occurs in my clients by working with me. Their confidence, energy and happiness soars. And couples find that their ability to connect and create intimacy and romance blossom by dancing together. It's AWESOME! Erin Parsley Dance + Steps to Love is an inclusive company, celebrating humans in all their expressions (no matter your gender identity, orientation, race, size or abilities) , and adores working with the LGBTQ+ community. I am passionate about sharing the gift of movement through my upbeat, encouraging and fun teaching style. I want you to have a total blast while learning to dance. YES, YOU CAN DANCE!!

Erin is a fabulous dance instructor! She helped me learn a lot of basic partner dance moves for some weddings I had this month. They went really well, and I plan to continue taking lessons!

Details: One • Wedding party dance • What my teacher recommends • No, I do not have choreography in mind • No song preference • No experience • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

We had so much fun working with Erin to create our first dance. She was totally responsive to our preferences, likes, and dislikes, and worked with our comfort level and skill in mind. We came away from each session commenting on how fun it was and how much we looked forward to the next one. Our dance was a total hit at the wedding and we have received so many compliments. Highly recommend working with Erin! We would again in a heartbeat.

Details: Two (ex. me and my partner) • First dance • What my teacher recommends • Slow Dance • No, I do not have choreography in mind • No song preference • No experience • My home, venue, etc. • At the pro’s location

My fiance and I had an amazing time working with Erin to choreograph our first dance.I was hesitant at first because I had never taken dance lessons before, but it's been one of the best decisions we've made for our wedding. We could not be happier with her. She was very attentive, enthusiastic, flexible and patient with us. I would definitely recommend her if you need help with a dance routine and want to feel more confident on a dance floor.

My girlfriend and I celebrated our two year anniversary with a private dance lesson from Erin. It was a lot of fun and she was very considerate and professional. My girlfriend and I are both shy and she made us feel very comfortable and connected to one another. It was very sweet and my girlfriend was very happy!

David, it was such an honor to spend time with you and your sweetie for your Celebrate Love Dance Experience! You two share an absolutely beautiful love and I see that your relationship is such a blessing. I wish you many years of happiness together! ~ Erin

Erin was an absolute pleasure to work with! She really took the time to explain every step and found a way to come up with a beautiful dance with such short notice. Working with her felt easy and organic. It was lovely to see her come up with the steps at each session- a true artist! My husband and I took her advice to make a date night out of each session. And we did! Tip: her location is really close to the beach so we went to the beach and practiced our moves there after our sessions. It was super romantic and a good way to start feeling comfortable with the idea of dancing in front of a crowd. I could go on and on about how much we enjoyed the whole process! If you are considering hiring Erin, just do it! You will not regret it!
Erin Parsley Dance + Steps to Love Wedding Dances's reply
Oh Anabel, what a wonderful testimonial of our time together! This delights my heart to read. And what an amazing and romantic story that you practiced your dance at the beach after our sessions. I'm sure the passerby's enjoyed watching you both so much!
