Absolutely LOVED our first private dance lesson with Natalie and SO happy to have found her and Move the Beat through Thumbtack!!! Definitely recommend!
Many dance instructors can teach the mechanics of dancing. Many people are satisfied with just knowing the mechanics. To take your dancing to the artist level you need someone that is more than just a dance teacher. I have found such a personAleks. He has not only taken my dancing to a higher level but he has helped me redefine my purpose in dancing. When I first met Aleks, I knew that he was a rare find. I also knew that his knowledge, experience, and skills would provide me with a solid foundation for ballroom dancing. Within a short period of time of taking private lessons with Aleks, I was able to see my progress and my potential as a dancer. I am excited and honored to be competing with Aleks! I am very proud to be his student. Thank you Aleks for the confidence and for my growth on the dance floor that you have bestowed upon me!
Brittni is an exceptional dance instructor. She is great to work with. She took my non salsa dancing boyfriend and created a monster. He now has the confidence to dance anywhere we go. I knew the basics of salsa dancing and she helped me improve my moves. She has the patience to guide every step of the way. I highly recommend Brittni. We will definitely be calling on her again!
I have had a wonderful time learning some of the different types of ballroom dancing. They take the time to break it down into small sections at a time and then put it all together after that, which I find is very helpful in learning a dance. I have had a great time every time I have took class with them!! I would rate my experience with them as outstanding! !
Kim was wonderful. Fun, professional and made it about us.
Great instructor, serious, motivating and fun. spacious clean studio, flexible schedule. I look forward to my lessons. I am happy with my decision and I highly recommend this studio.
I've taken lessons with Olga, both private and a group body movement class called "ballroom body", for over a year. She is a great teacher, gifted dancer, and clearly communicates technical details of movement. Her ballroom body class is very creative and fun as well. She has great energy, fun personality, is patient and very warm hearted, and just great to be around. I give very high recommendation!
Learned to dance Cajun style from Louie in late 1990's. Many people who like to Cajun dance learned from Louie. He is patient, fun, personable and able to break down steps easily. Great teacher. I've also seen him teach other styles of dancing with equal talent.
My husband and I have been taking ballroom dance lessons off and on for about 25 years. In that time, we’ve had many teachers. We’ve enjoyed something about all those experiences. But, Anna is the whole package! She’s a beautiful dancer, she’s an excellent teacher, she is patient, creative, and very professional. One of the things we really appreciate about her is how flexible and spontaneous she can be. Sometimes I come in with an idea of something I want to work on, without knowing the name of it or even being able to show her what it looks like. However she always knows what I’m talking about and will figure it out for me. And best of all-we always have a great time with her!
Julianne was wonderful with my daughter! We look forward to continuing with her singing lessons.
There are misconceptions that line dancing is all about cowboys and country and western. Yes, there is country and western but Rita Svane makes it look cool, and easy. Rita's style is encouraging and you feel she is talking just to you. Her teaching is excellent in its clarity; steps are taught in short blocks that are gradually put together to create the main frame of the dance, which makes it easier to learn from. I always enjoy the different sorts of music Rita chooses for the dances and her instruction moves are very well thought out. I believe she shows a true reflection of what line dancing is today.
Jacob has been my teacher for over two years, and he is a passionate, fun, and dedicated teacher who truly cares about his students and does all that he can to help them achieve their goals, reach their full potential in dance, and enjoy the journey to get there.
My specialty teaching is in ballet Folklorico Mexicano. I also specialize in quinceanera waltz choreography. I teach country line dancing. I am a certified Zumba instructor.
The dance experience was awesome!
The 2 hour dance lesson only tapped the surface of knowledge that Dennis has. He really cared and wanted me to learn. I was apprehensive but he quickly made me feel at ease.
I teach wedding dance, social (ballroom, country couples), waltz (travel), fox trot, chacha, rhumba, swing (2 kinds), and also slow dancing technique.
We teach social, competitive, club, and wedding dances. We teach private lessons, and group lessons to singles and couples of all ages. We teach American and International styles of dance.
I have a BFA in dance and have taught ages ranging from three to 17 in a variety of styles including ballet, tap, jazz, modern and hip-hop.
I offer Argentine tango classes, from beginner to advanced students. I offer group lessons and performances for private parties. I have also worked as a choreographer and an assistant producer on a short film. I have a total of 12 years teaching Argentine tango in a studio and at two major universities in Chicago. I have adopted a teaching style that allows anyone the ability to learn how to dance.
Movement is for everyone. If you've ever wanted to learn ballet and you are of any age, male or female, or perhaps you have a physical disability you feel keeps you from moving, let me help you dance. I've specialized in mixed abilities and have been dancing for 17 years and believe in a holistic approach to teaching movement.
I am well versed in many forms of dance from ballet to lyrical and can work with groups or on a one on one basis. I understand that every person is at a different level and should be treated as such. I try to be open to what my customer is looking for so I am very flexible with their needs. Dance is of course fun but first and foremost safety is key so that is where my professional training comes in use.
