My wife and I started taking dance lessons with Alexis about one month before our daughter’s wedding two and a half years ago. Although we had no dance experience before we started, Alexis got us sufficiently prepared so that we were able to dance with some confidence. After the wedding we continued our lessons at Alexis’ urging and after about 18 months she convinced us to compete in the newcomer amateur couples division which was quite an accomplishment considering how uncoordinated we were at the start. Since then we competed in a couple more competitions under Alexis’ expert guidance. She is an amazing instructor who seems to know every dance style and every detail of footwork and body position. Needless to say she is an accomplished dancer with an incredible flair and personality on the dance floor. Even though she has been our only teacher I have been able to observe other instructors with their students and her teaching style is far superior to anyone I’ve seen. It’s obvious she enjoys both teaching and dancing. Her students range in age from young to old, at various ability levels. She has even taught students with physical disabilities, showing how accomplished and professional she is. If anyone is even just considering taking lessons they should take at least one lesson from her and they’ll be hooked. She’s funny, inspiring, and a perfectionist, but not in a heavy handed way. I can’t imagine taking lessons from anyone else!!

We hired Mindy to help my husband and me with our first dance for our wedding. She was very dedicated in preparing our dance routine and ensuring that we were comfortable with the dance moves. We had two dance lessons. The first was very helpful in introducing the dance steps and getting used to the foot work. We recorded the dance routine with Mindy which was extremely helpful in observing how natural and elegant the dance is supposed to look like. Our second dance lesson was focused on refining the dance moves and make alterations that was best suited for our level. She had a good eye for the 2nd dance lesson to make adjustments that made sense for us. Overall, we were very pleased with hiring Mindy as a dance teacher and making our first dance a success! She also comes to your home which is a plus and makes it very convenient. She is willing to work with your schedule and is very committed in ensuring you are completely happy with her service. We highly recommend Mindy as a dance teacher!!

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.

Shyrelle has been working with my daughter for about a month now. My daughter needed hip hop & jazz lessons so that she could perform in her talent show at summer camp as well as try out for the dance team next year. I've seen her vastly improve in such a short time. Shyrelle implements discipline & fun & is so great with teens. Highly recommended!

We had such a great time learning to dance with Amy! She is so passionate , creative and patient. She gave us the gift of being able to dance together . She choreographed our first dance, taught us how to salsa and cha cha , and provided important rhythmic structure and movement for our father-daughter/ mother -son dance . She did such a great job of breaking down each movement and providing quick adjustments. We always felt like we grew so much from each lesson. I would highly recommend her to anyone with any dance level. She made our first dance so special!!! We can't thank her enough for all of help and coaching . Thank you! Alex & Shayna

Kathy was amazing. I took swing dance lessons on my own. She was a great lead. In one lesson, I almost learned the entire dance. She catered to my learning ability. I am looking forward to more lessons.

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.

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.

I wanted to surprise my wife with dance classes but didn't want to purchase it without seeing him in action so he agreed to have me come watch him teach one of his students. After seeing him, I was impressed so I purchased one class. Several weeks later, I presented the gift certificate to my wife and we had our first session. We were both impressed so I decided to purchase 20 more classes. The good thing about that was that he agreed to give me a discount if I prepay. in addition he has been patient, friendly and good with texting which I love. He is a good instructor and knows his stuff. We've had 3 lessons so far and going to our 4th one tonight. Give him a try

Lisa Marie gave us dance lessons for our wedding, and we could not have been happier! She was professional and fun. She helped us improve our dancing, but also made the whole process a real pleasure. I would recommend her to anyone looking for dance lessons for their wedding. She is wonderful to work with and you will not only have a great looking first dance, you will have a fabulous time in the process.

About

Hi! My name is Darren Wong and I am a member of the Kinjaz from NBC's World of Dance Season 1. With over 14 years of dance experience, I pride myself on sharing the knowledge I have been fortunate enough to learn with dancers of all skill levels. Most dance instructors have no organization to their courses and lessons plans for their individual students. I believe that this "random" lesson plan type of teaching is very unproductive and not beneficial for the students. If the students are not using what they learned from the previous lesson, then they are not growing as dancers. I love helping students reach the goals that they have set for themselves. As long as my students are having fun and progressing in their dance skills, I couldn't be happier.

In just a few short weeks, Patricia has taken my dancing to the next level. Because of her training, I have physically felt and seen enormous progress in my ballet technique. The work is intense, but Patricia has a wonderful way of making it manageable, while also pushing me to grow. She has a rare ability to explain difficult ballet mechanics in understandable ways (as proof of this, she trains children seven-years-old and younger, many of whom can out-dance most adults!). I have never felt more confident as a dancer than when I am under Patricia’s instruction. Not to mention, she is extremely kind. Her gentle, patient nature makes all of her students want to return to her again and again. I am so lucky to have met Patricia and to train with her. Personally, I have trained in ballet for eight years, and only with Patricia the past few months. Yet, it is my training with Patricia and her knowledge of ballet that I will continue to cultivate throughout my life as a dancer.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
