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!

I took mostly Carolyn's salsa and ballroom lessons. They are just great. The way how Carolyn explains a structure of a dance is highly analytical and she always goes into fundamentals if you are willing to follow her. She always encourage you to improve a foundation you have, connection you establish with a partner and other principle things rather than to learn and forget in a week some fancy pattern. That doesn't mean, that you don't find fancy patterns at her lessons though, you do. But she is a true teacher and know where is a right emphasis should be. She answers a question behind a question, always generously gives you more than you asked and brings the best from her experience to you. Carolyn is highly oriented towards your personal abilities and current progress and stays with you at your personal level patiently building a foundation for you to step forward. And it's never boring! She shares a lot of her natural fun and charm with students and cares about an individual of any level in a group.

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.

Isaac was a great experience. He’s a patient instructor. I’m a beginner and I learned so much from my first class. Looking forward to many more classes with Isaac.

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!

Fantastic dance/fitness instructor! Fernanda is a fabulous dancer and great instructor with a sweet, encouraging, humble and friendly personality. She also brings a lot to the community with her all-levels dance teams, children's classes, and fitness program as well as her professional dance presence. After tons of research and visits to expensive, stuffy, crowded health clubs I finally found a great studio to take Zumba-type Latin dance/fitness classes in San Rafael. Body Vibe Studio on Anderson St across from Rafael Lumber is spacious, clean, friendly, has lots of parking and doesn't have any membership fees. You just pay the instructors on a drop-in or discount class card basis. My favorite class is Fernanda's Kardio Kaliente/Zumba. The classes are a cross between Latin dance and Zumba, great fun and an excellent workout for all levels, no dance experience necessary. I also love Efren Buzzo's Salsa-Reggaeton fitness class. In both classes I sweat buckets and leave with a spring in my step, maybe ready to show off my steps on the next night out...

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.
