We made the decision last minute to hire a choreographer for our first dance. Crystal was able to choreograph a dance we could learn quickly and it was beautiful. Working with her was a ton of fun and her pricing was very reasonable. I would recommend her to anyone needing or wanting dance lessons.
No one has had any dance lessons yet (!), but she communicates a welcomed professionalism. She responds quickly and has a genuine enthusiasm for what she does.
It does not get better than these guys. We left our dance lessons till a week before wedding but still had high ambitions ( go figure) and somehow these two pros (not just in dancing but in kindness and communication...and realism) helped us achieve our dream dance in a realistic and effortless way. As a bride to have a professional actually behave professionally and take a burden off your shoulders and not just meet but exceed your high expectations the way they did is something I will forever be grateful for.
Mark taught my husband and I our first dance for our multicultural wedding. My husband and I had no prior dance training, and are both definitely the "wallflower" type. Thinking of the first dance caused both of us a lot of anxiety. Until Mark came in and changed our whole world and whole perception of how fun dance can be. Mark was always patient, an outstanding teacher, and truly made our first dance special. Our wedding was a multi-day event with numerous ceremonies and traditions from families of two distinct cultures. But dance lessons with Mark were a welcome respite from the hectic planning of the wedding. Mark taught us more than just dancing, he taught my husband and I to establish "connection", teamwork, and trust through dance! Now, my husband and I love to dance and it has become part of our lives, all thanks to Mark. I highly recommend Mark. He is an excellent teacher and you will love every minute of your dance lessons!
Tibor is an absolutely extraordinary dance instructor. Having trained in both Europe and the US, he has a much better understand of the technique required to become a proficient dancer than any other teacher from whom I have taken lessons. Furthermore, Tibor has a true passion for both dancing and teaching. I consider myself to be extremely lucky to be Tibor's student, and I give him the highest possible recommendation.
Arianna is a great dance instructor. She was very prompt in her communication to me and was able to choreograph a dance with very short notice. I enjoyed my session with her and had a lot of fun learning my dance for my husband on our wedding day. She was very helpful and open to making changes that I needed or wanted. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of dance lessons!
Hiphop lessons. She is the greatest teacher and explains the process well.
My son has been taking piano lessons here for about two months now and he loves it so much! These people are so enthusiastic about music and sharing it with these little souls.

One of my first teachers- made me love the sport and I still use the things I learned to this day. So many years later after taking lessons with so many people, I realize how truly professional he was and how much heart and soul he continues to put into his students. Aside from personal talent, he has abundant knowledge for the art of dance. 11/10 teacher, friend, supporter.
Working With Sam Allen was the most amazing experience. Sam gave me private Hip Hop dance lessons and was phenomenal. He was encouraging, patient, and pushed me to my highest potential. Sam was accommodating, professional, and made me feel like a super star. He teaches at your pace and to your ability. I learned so much and had so much fun at the same time. I highly recommend Sam to anyone of all ages and levels of experience. There is no better teacher out there.
I greatly enjoyed my dance lesson with Darren. I'm a very shy person and have social anxiety, but Darren made me feel very comfortable. I felt like I learned SO MUCH in one hour. He was able to provide critiques while still being nice and encouraging. He was not at all intimidating. I think that's what makes him a great teacher. I had to quit our lessons due to personal reasons but, for sure, once I get things in order I'll be taking more dance lessons from him in the future. Thanks for such a good experience!
Adrienne is an amazing dance instructor. Of course, she can teach you the basics, but what sets her apart is her ability to recognize your strengths and weaknesses and works with each. She clearly understands the nuance of dancing, foot work, weight shifts and timing, and how important they are to become the kind of dancer you want to be, should you want to compete professionally or just feel comfortable on any dance floor. She she has the ability to explain clearly and concisely what she wants you to do and how to get there. Just take one dance lesson with her, and you will never want anyone else to teach you. I guarantee it.
Artemi is an excellent dance teacher/coach. He takes the time to listen to his student's needs and goals. From that he bases his lesson plans. His private and group lessons are taught in segments and build on those segments so a beginner or advanced student can learn and grow. As a professional dancer, he has the knowledge and talent to work with his students on proper technique, physical strength, choreography, musicality and much more. He does this in a caring, supportive and fun way. But he also can be strict especially if preparing a student for a showcase or competition. Artemi is trained in American and International Latin and Ballroom dances. He also performs and competes proefssional with his partner pro dancer Erica Arnold. This helps him keep on top of his profession to then share with his students. I have grown as a person and dancer because of Artemi. He has helped me physically and mentally in my life. I look forward to my lessons whether it is to focus on technique, strengthen my core and/or just dance. As such, I would highly recommend Artemi Okunev.
I've booked Ally for a couple 1-on-1 classes and will continue to do so! She has such a fun energy, is soooo patient and encouraging. I'm really shy and a bad dancer, but the way Ally teaches really is empowering. She can break down things in a way that is understandable, to even those who are both musically and physically coordinately challenged. Also, I really like what she brings to the table. She has a lot of different playlists/music styles to introduce you too, and gives you a very broad approach on to dancing so that you can comfortably experiment with a lot of things. She has a lot of integrity as an artist, so she won't recycle other people's dances. Instead, she'll work with you to not only learn the basics, but do something fresh, fun, and unique. You'll never walk from her lessons feeling like you did someone else's work. Rather you'll get the feeling of accomplishment of doing something new, and it almost feels like yours. She really helps you connect you with that budding artist inside of you! Really, she has a fun attitude, and you can learn a lot of life things from her through dance, and she's someone who is a wonderful listener. She can provide you some guidance on and off the dance floor. I really recommend Ally for a well-rounded experience. I know you'll love her as much as I do!
Kevin is fun to work with and knows his dance moves! My fiance and I really enjoy our dance lessons with him!
I have been with Phill:s Ballroom Dance Studio for 25 years. This is a great studio if you are thinking of taking lessons. The staff is professional and dedicated to their students. The basic ballroom training is the best you can find. The studio is relaxing and fun. The practice dances give you extra opportunities to get individual instruction. The group classes help you make new friends. I highly recommend this studio.
I teach all levels of ballet, in classes and private lessons. My website and Facebook page is where I sell custom colored ballet slippers.
We offer ballroom, Latin and salsa dance lessons for affordable prices. We teach private, couple or group classes, and we can meet in a location close to you.
I teach dancers who are willing to learn no matter what the level. I, myself, competitively danced for 12 years. I have also been dancing professionally for 4 years. I have performed at award shows, received numerous dance awards, danced for many hip-hop and contemporary companies throughout my dance career and danced for a shoe company. I have been teaching dance throughout California for the past 4 years. I enjoy teaching students of all ages. I continue to train with many dance companies throughout the LA area to keep my students up to date on what is new. When teaching, I focus not only on the technique of the dance but also they style. It is very important to not only master the moves but to also bring the dance to life.
Urban Ballroom is based on the L.A. cha-cha. We teach partner dancing to smooth and easy R&B music. It's easy to learn and offers excellent opportunity for exercise and socializing with the grown and sexy folks.
