Erin is amazing! I wanted to up my dancing game, and I searched the internet to find someone to help me do that. After reaching out to Erin through Thumbtack, she responded back very quickly and answered all of my questions well. Halfway into the first session, I knew I made an excellent choice for Erin to be my dance instructor. She’s friendly, has a great sense of humor, is articulate, is fun... and this gal seriously knows how to dance and how to teach it. I felt immmediately comfortable with Erin, which is super important when you’re learning how to do some new moves! I happily purchased a package of 6 classes with her - and now after finishing 4 of them, I’m sure I’ll continue with more lessons with her after that. Learning to dance with Erin is an excellent choice. Highly recommended!

She's an experienced teacher--warm, friendly and unintimidating. (Did I mention that she cracks jokes? It takes the edge off, which is a godsend for a nervous beginner like me.) She helped me work out dance moves for my wedding. Now I'm taking personal rumba lessons. I also enjoy Metronome, the dance studio where she teaches, which is in an old, Italian social club in Potrero. I recommend Emily for anyone who wants to take dance lessons, from salsa to ballroom.

Joseph taught me and my fiancee to dance salsa. In six lessons I went from a beginner who doesn't know a single to turn, to being able to dance a whole song chaining a series of moves. He was providing very actionable and specific feedback which helped me improve my technique and timing. I'd be happy to work again with him in the future. Thanks!

Angie was a great teacher. She gave us specific moves to practice as beginners, and mistakes to avoid. She was patient while we were trying to pickup the moves. She asked us to record her lessons so that we can practice at home. I recommend her to anyone looking for a dance instructor.

Precise is legit. Not only did he he teach me all I needed to know as a complete beginner, but he's always available and flexible with scheduling our sessions and makes them fun. I got into great shape and learned things I didn't know I'd be able to do just from a few lessons. If I practiced more I'd be a good breaker too! If you're new or super experienced, Precise has you covered, makes you sweat, and gives you some solid moves for whenever the beat drops.

Had two outstanding classes with Mary. She spent some time listening to me and what I wanted and needed. As we went through the lesson, she made some very helpful corrections that made me feel more comfortable in the poses. She seems to know a great deal about kinesiology and that really helped. She has a kind and gentle manner. I also liked that each lesson had a theme based on what I had said to her: the first was "resting" and the second was "opening". The private lesson was was very personalized and perfect for me as I am rather shy.

My fiancé and I had a great experience with Melissa! We went to her for lessons for our First Dance at our wedding. She was very patient with us. Melissa came up with a dance that was fun and fit our style and personalities. The wedding is next weekend and we are ready to hit the dance floor thanks to Melissa!

I have taken several private lessons from Ms. Reyes and attend her weekly Bachata and Salsa classes. She is very detailed oriented and breaks down body movement and styling in ways that i can understand. She has been EXTREMELY patient with me and has made me an overall better dancer. She constantly pushes me to go out social dancing to perfect my craft of dancing and is never afraid to correct me so that i can do things right. If you are a beginner dancer or are trying to take your dancing to the next level i would highly recommend her.
