Kat was an awesome dance instructor and choreographer for our first dance as husband and wife. When i first made contact with her, whe was quick to respond to my many questions. We reached out to her with less than a month until our wedding, and she was able to schedule us very quickly, within a few days of confirming we would work with her. I appreciated her responsiveness, rates, and availability, so I chose her over four others I had been in touch with on Thumbtack. We met with her three times leading up to the wedding for our two minute dance. During the first two lessons, she showed us the choreography, and in the final lesson, we perfected our moves. She made a custom two minute mp3 of our song for us, and also took video of us dancing the choreography, so we would have that to practice on our own. She was also flexible and understanding when we had to reschedule one of our sessions. We both felt really confident when we danced on our wedding day, and I think our guests really liked it. My husbamd, who previously had no dance experience, got a lot of compliments from his guy friends, so he was very happy. You won't regret working with Kat. Thanks again!

My fiance and I came in for beginner dance classes with Priti for our wedding ceremony. We both enjoy music but had zero formal dancing experience, so this was naturally a bit out there for us. Right off the bat, Priti was really great at understanding our vision and what we we're looking for in our first dance. She was able to teach us basics around ramba, salsa, and swing, which we're all incorporated into our dance routine. As beginners, learning the basics prior to learning different routine executions made putting everything together much easier in the grand scheme of things. Each lesson, she worked with us on improvements and made sure to adjust the dance accordingly based on our feedback/hesitations across particular areas. Overall, it was a very calming experience that left us very well prepared for our wedding. We are very happy with the service we received from Priti and received amazing feedback from our friends and family on our performance. We would 100% recommend her for anyone looking to work with someone reassuring, patient, and very knowledgeable in her craft. Thanks Priti!!

We hired Gonzalo to give us dance lessons for the first dance of our wedding - it was absolutely one of the best (and most rewarding) decisions we made throughout the planning process. We contacted him only 4 weeks before the wedding with very limited options open in our schedules, and asked for 2 lessons (we have never taken dance lessons before but were on a budget and optimistic about our skills). He was incredibly responsive and accommodating - he even drove for 1hr in hurricane-like rain to make our 8pm lesson in our tiny rowhome in Baltimore, twice! Throughout the lessons, he never made us feel self-conscious or awkward, or like we were asking for the impossible (which we may have been). He was always making us laugh and the whole thing just felt fun. And, perhaps most importantly, he helped us come up with a routine that was completely us (we are not formal ballroom-dance people, our first dance song was disco/electro house). The dance itself was a huge hit, and had people clapping along and cheering by the the end. But even without the actual wedding dance, the lessons would have still been worth it - they were some of the best evenings we had together throughout wedding planning. We are so grateful to Gonzalo and would recommend him to everyone! (Especially groundlessly self-assured millenials with particular music tastes).

I just recently began contemporary/modern/hip hop dance lessons with Brandy and I could not have asked for a better teacher! She is knowledgeable, paitient, and highly skilled. I would definitely recommend to everyone! I learned so much in just three weeks and will continue to learn so much as we move forward

Mary Krause was wonderful!!! She conducted a Zumba session recently at our Health Fair and everyone had a great time--still getting compliments. I will definitely recommend--she had all ages (kids, teens, adults) doing Zumba. The lesson was performed so that everyone could participate. Thanks so much.

It doesn’t take long to notice Helena’s talent as a dancer and instructor. As a beginner salsa student I truly appreciate the level of patience Helena has as an instructor and the way she breaks complex and beautiful combinations into a series of simple movements. She has helped me learn much, and I look forward to continuing my journey through salsa with her. Helena, thank you!

Wow! We made the best choice in Alina as a dance instructor. Dance lessons were my favorite part of the whole wedding planning process. I looked forward to it every week and I also loved practicing in between. Alina is a real teacher and choreographer. There is structure to the one hour lesson. We learned basic steps individually with her leading us, then she wove those steps into a dance using our chosen song, then she would make sure we repeated it enough times to commit it to memory and give us recommendations/corrections. In the last 5 minutes of class she had us do the dance one more time full out while she video taped it on my phone. This was so helpful because then if we forgot anything we could go back to the video. Alina was very personable, but I say that she's a real teacher because she knows how to get down to business and make progress within the one hour class. We didn't waste any time and we made so much progress in just 4 classes. My partner was not as enthusiastic as me from the beginning, but my partner said she wished that we had started earlier and booked 10 lessons. I watched my partner's confidence grow over the course of the 4 lessons which was really a bonus for both of us and I attribute that to Alina's guidance and instruction. I am certain also that Alina can choreograph dance after dance even in her sleep. Her mind is filled with dance moves and she's able to quickly and expertly weave them together for the dance. We handed her music at our first lesson that she hadn't had a chance to listen to yet, and she didn't even skip a beat in choreographing the dance. It's impressive. I highly recommend Alina for any couples getting married. You won't be disappointed!!

Robyn came and worked with my every need. As a beginner for ballet, we did one hour classes once a week at our house. We had lots of fun and I improved a lot. She was off time only a few times but was very flexible and we could always make things work. She quickly improved my ballet skills so that I was able to get into a class at a studio. I highly recommend Robyn Lindsey.

My husband and I took our wedding dance lessons with Fabio and absolutely loved our experience! Fabio is a very knowledgeable instructor and makes the dance lessons fun and frustration free! Fabio worked with us to create a wonderful and memorable first dance that flawlessly combined our personalities and skill levels. Jennifer is fantastic and always promptly responded to all our emails and phone calls. We cannot say enough good things about Forever Dancing!

I didn't know what Improv Dance was until I took a class with Darrell. I instantly fell in love with the practice and his passion for sharing movement in a fun and safe way. After the class I felt more open and connected. I never knew connecting in this way with other humans could bring so much joy to my soul. He's truly a talented teacher and his passion for the dance shines through in all of his teachings.

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.
