  • Ren's Dance Lessons

    I teach private ballet and contemporary classes. I break down dance technique in ways that are easier for dancers and non dancers to understand. I've had many great teacher who have taught me many tricks that have helped me to better understand my technique from an anatomical standpoint and has helped my dancing. I spend most of the lesson going through technique and then, if the student is ready, we can apply that technique to a short combination.

  • Mike Davis Choreography and Dance Instruction

    I provide vigorous dance instruction and innovative choreography. I do broadway, burlesque, theatrical, hip-hop and pop concert performances, drawing from my background in theater and dance when I'm teaching my styles. My method is to create concepts for my students with a clear vision of how I want my choreography presented. I believe musicality is very important for dancers to listen to and become the movement to whatever instruments are being played in the song. My goal is to inspire and uplift spirits within my circle of students from the moment they enter my presence.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Chicago Country

I started Chicago Country back in 2002 as a central location for people to find country Western music and dance instruction.

Patrick Stamer offers private as well as group dance lessons. His clients love him and always have a grand time with him! Those who have recently met him all wished they had met him sooner.

There have been hundreds of classes, private lessons, corporate events, small and large parties over the years.

Patrick is no greenhorn to the dancing field. He has danced for eight seasons in pre-game performances for the Chicago Bulls. He was also a house instructor for a Chicago bar for three years, and did lessons here and there.

As far as strategy goes, I have one rule: the client and guests need to have a foot stompin' blast!
