Introduction
I am the ONLY provider on Thumbtack in the Bay Area with BOTH a United States National and World title in addition to dozens of Professional Top Teacher/Studio awards within the industry, ensuring that my years of experience can be helpful to prospective clients. I am also the only provider with students that have earned National/World titles of their own. My students enjoy success through a structured plan and curriculum. When a student has a specific goal, we lay out a timeline and make steps towards a good result with each passing week. As an instructor, I understand the importance of organization and establishing continuity with lessons. My experience and high standard of accomplishments have allowed me to cater to students of all levels, from wedding and social to highly competitive athletes. In addition, my rates and policies allow me to be one of the most accessible instructors in the Bay Area. Outstanding customer service and quality instruction are what I strive to deliver with every single lesson. Through my methods and my ability to effectively communicate information via multiple formats, I will guarantee that a student can go home from their first lesson fully knowledgeable in ways that will allow them to continue learning beyond the lesson time as well as comprehend how to reach their goals in a sensible fashion. I love to see the positive impact dance has on others. Helping people reach their goals and the happiness that comes with it is priceless and besides learning to dance, students gain in many other aspects of their lives as well. Dance provides a structured activity where students can enjoy seeing their progress as well as a social activity, health maintenance program, stress relief, and much more.

We got Dan’s teaching expertise for our Wedding First Dance which is scheduled for Jan. 4, 2025. We chose to do the Tango, dancing to the tune of “Dance me to the end of love”, as a challenge for my future hubby and I. For people with no formal dance background like us, we thought we’d start the lessons 6 months before the wedding just to make sure we have enough time to be able to dance our routine comfortably amd confidently. We are currently in our 5th lesson out of 10 and Dan has been a great teacher. He is very detailed in his explanation for every move. He clearly shows the proper techniques and tricks to make the dance steps easy and manageable. After each class he lets us video tape our next moves/steps for our next class. We make it a point to practice on our own 1 day in a week so by the time we get to our next class, we are just polishing and making corrections. So far Dan has been really great. We are not done with our Choreography yet but Dan is so fun to work with, we eagerly look forward to our next class. We like it how he pushes us to do seemingly impossible “to do” moves but with constant practice, we somehow get it down and it’s the best feeling ever! We still have a long way to go but Dan makes learning Tango so enjoyable we are extending our lessons until December, with a possible 2nd Dance Routine doing the Rumba to the tune of “Island in the Sun by the Weezers”. Something lighter and upbeat, to follow up with the Tango. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone who is thinking about getting private dance lessons. We look forward to learning more! (An honest review from a couple who fell in madly in love with TANGO) Thanks to Dan!

Details: 46-65 • Two people • Ballroom • No experience • Preparing for a wedding • 60 minutes • Once a week • At the pro’s location

Daniel is creative in his choreography, great and communication/coaching, and very receptive to requests and feedback. It’s a great combination that’s hard to find in most cases, but is especially exceptional when we’re preparing for our big day. It’s been a joy learning from Daniel and we’re looking forward to more lessons to come!

Dan choreographed the first dance for our wedding in very short order. He is truly an expert. We had several people tell us it was the best first dance they had ever seen (and we are absolutely not dancers by nature). Dan was super responsive and made scheduling easy. I would highly recommend him for weddings from personal experience, though it was quite apparent that he can teach many other types of dances as well. It was a fun and very fulfilling experience! As I await the professional photos, I can just attach a very blurry one from the groom's mom.

We hosted a corporate event and wanted to do beginner Salsa class for our team. Daniel was not only very fast at responding to our inquires, however he also was professional and worked with us to ensure our team felt comfortable dancing. It turned out to be a very fun and memorable day for our team and they all walked away with some new salsa moves! We look forward to having Daniel back with us for a future event!

Details: 36-45 • A group of 5-10 people • Salsa • Beginner • Developing a hobby • 45 minutes • As recommended by professional • My home, venue, etc.
