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!
I reached out to Mary to teach me and 7 other women how to do the merengue. It was over Cinco de Mayo weekend and we were celebrating my sisters bachelorette party. No one knew she was coming except for me. She was beyond amazing! From emailing to texting and phone calls she always got back to me in a timely manner. I had warned Mary we were looking to have more fun with it than seriousness and she was perfect! We did a little goofing around but she made sure we got back on track to make sure we finished learning the dance without being rude, bossy, or annoyed. She played her own music and it worked awesome with our group. If we were doing something wrong she corrected us and had fun with us! She was very accommodating to us and flexible with schedules. I 100% recommend Mary Chandler and will be using her again if an opportunity presents itself!
Elizabeth is great at explaining and teaching the dance lessons. I get excellent feedback from her at every lesson. The best dance teacher to date for me.
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!
My fiance and I at the time bought a living social dance lessons package at an awesome price that helped kick start our dance lessons. Steve (the owner) was fantastic, knowledgeable, and personable. We received individual dance lessons and Steve took us through all the different dances we could possibly do or want to do and from there he listened to our first dance song and we narrowed down what dance we wanted/could do for our wedding dance. After our living social package lessons were up my fiance and I were so impressed and pleased that we ended up buying their Bronze package for 15 additional lessons! These lessons took us more in depth within our first wedding dance (which turned out to be a Viennese Waltz). Each lesson lasted one hour and after each lesson we felt we had learned more and gotten better and more knowledgeable ourselves about dancing. When our wedding came we slam dunked our first dance and still our guests say that was the biggest surprise of our wedding (because we didn't tell anybody we were taking dance lessons) and that they had never seen a better first dance. My husband and I felt at ease after having our dancing lessons and more confident about dancing in general. The instructors really go at your pace and give examples, feedback, and make it fun! I have watched our first wedding dance about 50 times and still smile and feel proud at the end of it. What made this experience even better was how proud, enthusiastic, and excited Steve was about our first dance as well. Now that our wedding is over my husband and I are still going back to dance lessons and are excited to learn other dances and show those off to our friends and family as well. After researching all different dance studios that provide first wedding dance lessons, this was by far the best! I have loved every minute of it and would do it again in a heartbeat!!! I would recommend "Get on the Floor Dance Company" to anyone I talked to!!! After all, they truly did make me feel like Cinderella at my wedding during our first dance! We twirled around and I was on top of the world!!!
I have been taking lessons from Tsha for several years. Tsha is an excellent teacher because she understands movement, and its source. She understands and explains very well how our body moves. She is also excellent at finding why a step, a connection with a partner, a movement is not happening, and pointing out how it can be fixed. Tsha is also very patient with her students, funny, caring and sweet. She always has interesting and new music to use for practice.
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.
Kim was wonderful. Fun, professional and made it about us.
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.
Wonderful lesson. Tailored the dance to our song and personalities. Would recommend her!
I teach wedding dance, social (ballroom, country couples), waltz (travel), fox trot, chacha, rhumba, swing (2 kinds), and also slow dancing technique.

I offer private dance lessons for beginners: salsa, merengue, Cumbia and other Latin dance styles. I'm a teacher from Colombia.
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.
If you want to learn how to dance like a pro -- Anthony's GetUpAndDance Classes are just for you. I can teach you as fast as you want to learn or as slow and easy. Whether you are experience or none experienced, I will help you to either learn new moves or your first moves. I have been dancing since I could walk, so for me, to be able to share my talents with others is a dream and a chance to help other to get their start. I charge by the hour but charges are not pricey at all, depending on the time and classes. Custom packages are accommodated to your budget. My clients are within the community, out of state, etc. They either come to me, or if they're comfortable enough, I'll travel to their residence.
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 teach Latin and ballroom dance lessons for kids and adults! Kids can start learning at any age, and pretty soon, be competing just like Dancing With the Stars!
I meet my students/clients at the level they are at. I want to make sure they look good doing the movement and most importantly making sure they are comfortable with it. I will challenge my students/clients but I will not push them to do something they are not comfortable with.
