We had Dan for our wedding first dance lessons. From the get-go, Dan had a very detailed, yet easy to follow instructions. We don't have any dancing background, yet he put so much trust in us to perform some amazing moves and created a unique routine. Everyone at our wedding were thoroughly impressed with our dance. Thank you Dan!

Erin helped teach my husband and myself an amazing dance for our 'First Dance.' The whole experience was perfect, and I loved what she put together for us. My husband and I both want to continue to see Erin for more dance lessons. She's the best and I highly recommend.

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!

Dina was a great dance instructor and very friendly. My fiancé and I took private dance lessons for our first dance. My fiancé had very little dance practice but she helped both of us perfect our skills for our big day. We didn’t feel pressured nor judged of our skills. Highly recommend any couples seeking lessons. We looked forward to our weekend lessons. Thanks!!

I don't recall now how I found Desiree but I'm so glad I did! My fiancee did NOT want to do a choreographed wedding dance, but I wanted to have at least part of the dance memorized so we knew when the transitions and dips were. We had a few lessons with Desiree, perhaps at least 5, and Desiree was super welcoming, friendly, and easy to work with. We easily got along with her, which made being her students that much easier. We had a say into how the dance would look like and she styled it with an expert's eye. My fiancee and I had taken salsa classes at CCSF so we were a little bit better than beginners. She took what the moves that he knew and worked with it. We had picked a song we both liked but it had faster beginning so she taught us Bachata and transitioned into Salsa. She also edited the song for us so that the DJ could pay the clip at the wedding. During our class, she took videos with us so that we could watch it later and see how we could improve. She also helped us with the entrance into the room and the ending. I would definitely recommend her!

Marge is amazing! She knows what she's doing and what you need to focus on once she sees you dancing. She has lots of experience under her belt. She knows more than 15 different dances and loves to dance and have a great time. From just 2 salsa lessons I'm loving it!

My church wanted to do a program of three Latin Dance lessons over the course of a month. We looked for somebody to do this and we found the most marvelous teacher --- Ruth Caspary of Latin Connection Dance. First of all, she was really professional and easy to plan with. And she had good suggestions for the planning. We were able to fit in bachata, salsa, and American tango. Super! Second, she came on site (we have a great space with a wooden floor) with her equipment and music and was ready to teach. Third, she is a super teacher. She accounted for each person's abilities and was energetic and generous with her time. We all learned a lot and had great fun, too. Last, but not least, she is social and friendly, a good conversationalist as well as a great teacher. There's no question who we'd go to in the future.

I had so much fun working with Isaac on my first lesson! The vibe was super friendly and we went over a half-dozen basic steps, giving me plenty of material to practice on. This is exactly what I was seeking from private hip-hop dance lessons.

"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.

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.

Prior to being a student of Monica Santana, never in my life would I step foot on a dance floor. Apprehensively, I scheduled my first class. With the warmest and most sincere of smiles, Monica made her introduction. I pulled out my phone, showed her a salsa video I had found on YouTube, "Monica please, that...that's what I want to do. That's what I want to be." She laughed and assured me, "we'll get you there! Let's practice!" Within moments of meeting, I was entrusting her with the momentous task of turning my clumsy, uncoordinated, anxiety-ridden self into something that might resemble a dancer. To be sure, that's exactly what she did. From our very first lesson Monica encouraged me to get out and dance socially, but I was incredibly timid, and my long history with social anxiety had me convinced I just was not ready. She helped me to work through that anxiety; in the most sincere and painless way possible. It was detailed instruction, confidence, and immense passion for dance that she delivered with each and every lesson. Weeks turned to months and my confidence on the dance floor grew. I approached each and every lesson with the same great enthusiasm for dance that Monica radiates with. I decided one night that I would go out and dance socially. I went to a club in Mountain View where I danced salsa and bachata all night. After the last dance of the evening, I was approached by a few of the ladies that I had danced with that evening. My dance partners that evening complimented my ability to lead and expressed their gratitude, and a few that I hadn't danced with approached to ask me how I learned to dance so well. In my following lesson with Monica, I don't know which of us was more excited for my progress. With each lesson Monica introduced new techniques, patterns and styling movements that complimented the last. Never did I get a feeling of stagnation or that our time was without structure or purpose. We would begin each lesson reviewing to different songs before elaborating upon something or moving on to something more challenging. Monica is very talented at recognizing just when to slow things down and incredibly receptive to requests. I thank her endlessly for her patience. I've since moved hours away and continuing my lessons with Monica is unfortunately, impractical. Yet everywhere I go dancing I've been complimented, "you lead that really smooth!", "I really enjoy dancing with you! I felt like I learned a lot!", and my favorite from another instructor, "wow, you have such a great frame!" I realize that this has been an unapologetically glowing review, and that is because I have every confidence that Monica will deliver the learning experience you're looking for. Her knowledge is rivaled only by her passion for teaching. I can say with confidence there is not another instructor to deliver the same value in terms of professionalism and progressive development. With her encouragement, I've taken lessons with other instructors. While yes, there's something new to be learned from everyone - I never once felt like I'd ever come close to skill ceiling I might attain by continued lessons with Monica.

I loved Sarah, she is an amazing teacher for my 10 year old daughter. Her energy is infectious, she's so good with kids. Really she's just such a people person. I really like that she is still competing and continuing to get lessons with international coaches. My daughter is getting international ballroom and latin training without having to travel overseas. Love her!

I started with no dancing experience at all. I’ve been taking dance lessons from Ashley Campos for 4 years now. She is a very professional dance teacher. She teaches all ages, men and women. She provides highly qualified personalized instruction, and inspires individual artistic confidence. She personalizes each dance lesson based on your individual needs, desires, and goals. She'll adopt to your pace and take you from where you are, whether you’re experienced dancer or beginner.

    My partner and I took dance lessons from Justin for about a year and a half. In the course of 20+ lessons, he took our rudimentary understanding of dance to a competitive level. I always felt like he was sensitive to our comfort level and made very complex styles and moves accessible to us. Few teachers have an understanding of club, international and competitive dance styles in the way that Justin does. He is a gifted, patient and extremely fun teacher.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How much do dance lessons cost?

      Adults who want to learn to dance, whether to prepare for a wedding or to meet new people, often enjoy taking dance lessons from an experienced dance instructor. Instructors may offer classes one-on-one to individual students or couples, or to small groups. The national average cost for a dance instructor ranges from $30 to $50. Some studios offer a discounted introductory lessons or group lessons, as well as package deals that are more affordable than paying for individual lessons. Some dance instructors will travel to the student’s home, which usually costs more, while others hold small-group sessions in their studios. If you choose a small-group class, expect to pay less than for individual dance lessons.
