Working with Dan was one of the best and most positive experiences we have ever had. My wife and I saw the music video for Ed Shereen's Thinking Out Loud and we wanted to do the dance for our wedding. We came to thumbtack to look for an instructor and luckily we came across Dan. At first I was skeptical that an instructor could choreograph a routine we would like and could perform well, so we told him we just wanted to follow the music video. However, Dan let us know we could do something much more elegant than the video and put together an even better routine for us. And it turned out amazing. Lesson by lesson he custom tailored a routine for us that was simply incredible and far exceeded our expectations. He listens to what you like and dislike and will change things around for you while also giving you his good suggestions. We both came into this with no experience in ballroom dancing, me having no dance experience at all. I was definitely extremely nervous that I could pull this wedding dance off at first as I consider myself a pretty bad dancer. But after every lesson I came out feeling more and more confident. Dan is not only a great instructor, but also has a very positive attitude that kept me motivated that I could do this. In the end, the dance turned out unbelievable. My wife and I would both highly recommend him if you are looking for an instructor for any kind of dance and level. We will definitely go back to him in the future. Thank you Dan!
My fiance and I signed up for dance lessons with Erin and we couldn't be happier. I started out with zero background in dance and after only a couple lessons my fiance and I have our first dance choreographed. I'm actually excited to dance at my wedding which is saying a lot. Erin is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable right away. I would highly recommend her!
Marge was very friendly and understanding making it easy for a couple of non-dancers to begin learning ballroom dancing for the first time ever. We only had 4 hours with her since we decided on choreographing a ballroom dance so late in the game, but she was able to bring us up to speed quickly and professionally. She would get sidetracked sometimes and begin telling us stories but it was charming and she didn't stay off track for too long. Her teaching style was firm but patient at the same time and the lessons were always fun. Our dance turned out fantastic, especially considering the short amount of time she had to teach it to us and the fact that we had no prior dance training at all.
We've been taking weekly ballroom lessons. Dina's been very helpful and patient.
Ruth is a great teacher! Very friendly and accommodating. We took a series of wedding tango dance lessons with her.
I selected Emily for private salsa lessons (after having not ballroom danced since high school). We started with a smattering of dance styles to warm up. As part of being a great teacher, Emily was a really good listener. So together, we discovered that although I'd sought lessons thinking I wanted to learn salsa, it turns out I most enjoyed West Coast Swing. I'm going to my first West Coast Swing social event tonight. Thanks, Emily, for giving me the foundation to make this happen!
My [then] fiancée and I took lessons from Eliott for our first dance. Eliott was patient, fun, and an excellent teacher. We recommended him to our friends who also took lessons for their first dance!
Freddy is fabulous! We hired her for a mom / son dance for his bar mitzvah. This was not a typical slow dance. We asked her to copy the choreography from our favorite video. She showed up at the studio having already broken down the choreography for us. Then she had us go through some warmup dancing and started the choreography. She was incredibly responsive to our needs. I wanted the dance broken down for me a certain way so I could nail the steps. She was supportive of my son, who had never taken a dance lesson. Within the time we booked, we nailed the dance and video'd the choreography. Cannot say enough good things about Freddy. She's upbeat, friendly and makes you feel welcome in a dance studio.
We took dance lessons from Alpa for our first dance at our wedding reception. She choreographed the whole thing and even asked us for our input and offered to let us change things based on comfort and preference. She did a great job though and me being the control freak that I am, I'm surprised that I didn't have a single change request! Let me stress that neither one of us are dancers and I was very worried about doing the dance in front of so many of our friends and family. But Alpa was so patient with us and made us feel so comfortable. We feel like we've known her for years yet we just met her a couple weeks ago! We learned the dance in two lessons and we will be back for our final lesson next week just to practice in front of her with my 25 lb lehenga and heels. If you need dance lessons of any kind, she is your girl! Thank you, Alpa! We are so thrilled that you will be a part of our big day in such a big way.
I went to a solo introductory class with Tara and she was very professional and understanding of what I was looking for, she introduced me to different forms of ballroom dance and allowed me to choose those that I liked and was comfortable with. I have to admit to an amazing first experience and signed up for more classes right away.
Desiree choreographed my first wedding dance. I showed up as a man without any rhythm or even the slightest interest in dancing. I thought the entire process would be one of the worst experiences of my life. Desiree not only had me enjoying dance on day 1, but I've been taking dance lessons for the last 7 months as a result of her inspiration. She managed to teach me two choreographed dances (Tango and Rhumba) in only a handful of lessons. Desiree is an excellent teacher, clearly explains and demonstrates moves, stays positive at all times, and keeps you motivated as a student. Cannot recommend her highly enough. Our guests were shocked and blown away by the choreography, and that was with someone with no prior dance experience. You will not be disappointed!
"First Dance" lessons with choreography assistance less than 2 weeks out from our wedding. We started out with 2 and extended it to 3 lessons. Joseph was really helpful instructing the two of us that have no background in dancing. In 1 hour we had the basis for a first dance at our wedding. In 2 hours he got us better at that and added flourishes. In 3 hours he worked on the entire production. He knows what he's doing and has fun doing it.
Jessica is super encouraging, understanding, and enthusiastic about what she does. I have always wanted to learn how to dance; however, my biggest barrier is my fear to just let loose. Jessica is super patient with me. She teaches me new moves and provides the space to try them out. I'm still in the process of getting over my fear but with each lesson, I feel myself feeling a little more confident than the lesson before. Jessica definitely does a good job of pushing me to get better without making me feel uncomfortable.
Caterina is an outstanding personal trainer. She adapts each training session to my capabilities and goals. She is very encouraging and motivating, which pushes me to surpass my expectations. She incorporates her dance experience to make the workouts fun and challenging. She has adapted exercises to improve my balance and stability. She is a delightful trainer to work with. I look forward to each training session.
I took voice and piano lessons with Joann. She was very encouraging. She believed in me and pushed me just enough to achieve my goals. Super thankful I got to work with her.
Larry J. Brooks, jr. has been my ballroom dance teacher for the past three years. A highly professional instructor, Larry is polite, encouraging and thorough. He has kept accurate records of my dance progress, begins and ends lessons punctually and maintains a safe, pleasant ballroom atmosphere. With a gentle nudge, I have been challenged to participate in several showcases partnered with Larry. Overall, my ballroom dance experience has been fun!
I have been learning dance from Sonly for more than 10 years. She is a great dancer ( simply a professional dander in my eye as I see at dance show/contests) and at a same time a great teacher. Her passion for teaching is so strong that you are inspired to learn and to improve (I was a person who was too shy to dance when I started with Sonly and become one who has good confidence of myself). What makes her exceptional is her insight of music and lead you to dance with understanding of music. I am also very impressed by her teaching ability that she sees exactly and precisely in each individual what to work on. She is also sensitive to feelings of students and coach in way you feel comfortable. I love Sonly!!! Trust me, you will lover her to be your teacher!!!
Professional and great dance instructors. They provide excellent dance lessons and easy to learn.
So far enjoying the experience!

I teach adult Zumba and youth hip-hop. Both classes are offered at RoCo Dance, or I can hold private dance instruction when the studio space is available.
