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 worked with Dan for our wedding first dance choreography. We were very happy with the choreographed dance and the instruction we received when attending classes. It was often challenging to schedule our next session with Dan due to his busy schedule with his lessons and competition commitments.

We worked with Dan for our first dance at our wedding and it was a fantastic experience! He was super flexible to our schedules, communicative, and taught us a routine that wow’d our wedding crowd. Such a fun experience!! If you’re thinking about working with Dan be prepared to learn basics about dance, rehearse, and have an awesome routine to perform. He even cut out music which we provided to our band to match the timing of what we had learned. Covid concerned and safe, Dan was absolute top notch through and through. Only true professionals can instruct like this, memories for a lifetime!

Dan reached out to me and offered wedding dance private lessons. He had a very thoughtful list of questions asking beforehand in better preparing himself for the first lesson (which is awesomely free!!). I decided on him since he left me with great impression of customizing to my need & being extremely accommodating. I had fun taking lessons with him. Dan is very patient (and an amazing dancer) to students, and gives very clear instruction especially considering I am just a beginner. I feel comfortable having him as my teacher and will consider hiring him again for future ballroom private lessons! Highly recommended if you are looking for an instructor who can tailor to what you need & offer great instructions!

Dan was a blessing in our wedding! He helped us designed a beautiful dance using our favorite song in Cantonese and was very good at teaching us all the steps and poses even though we are both beginners. Besides our first dance, Dan also helped teach my wife and her dad their father and daughter dance just one month before our wedding. Dan was patient and encouraging, making these lessons valuable memories to all of us. All of our guests loved our dances and they were the highlights of our small COVID wedding. Dan’s rate is fair and you will definitely not regret working with him!

Package prices and/or payment plans may be further negotiable dependent on circumstances.

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

    New students often have a lot of questions as the world of ballroom dancing is unfamiliar to most. When speaking with new clients, I aim to be as informative as possible and express that beyond meeting their initial goal, I am interested in caring for and managing long term goals as well. My greatest asset is organization, and it is important that new students are confident in my ability to maintain their progress.

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

    I graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelor's in Marketing and I continue to further my education on the subjects of communication and client interaction in order to provide the best services. As an instructor and active professional competitor, I take multiple lessons a week in order to further my dancing ability and knowledge for the benefit of my students. I also have extensive background in music as well as kinesiology, allowing me to teach concepts such as body actions and rhythm at the scientific level.
