Dancing with Dariusz

I was really nervous about taking dance lessons, I almost cancelled many times, but I am so very glad that I didn't. After meeting Dariusz and spending the first 5 minutes of the lesson I knew I made the right choice in not only sticking to the appointment, but in my teacher. Dariusz not only pays attention to form (mechanics) but to his student's frame of mind and works tirelessly and patiently to eliminate negative thoughts and replace them with only the positive. He is more than a dance teacher, he really cares about his students. This after just one lesson, I can't wait for more. I am going to gain much more than the ability to dance with more confidence than I've ever had, he is going to impact me in the most positive way one person can affect another. Dariusz is a really wise choice. Try it and find out for yourself you will NOT be disappointed.

Arati was exactly what we needed! We had a great experience with her wedding dance lessons, she was able to take the two of us who are very inexperienced and knew nothing to prepare an awesome dance! She has a lot of patience, easy to schedule with and great sense of humor, we had a great time working with her!

Irina is a true pro, we highly recommend her services! We signed up a few wks before our wedding date looking to learn more abt dancing as a couple, concentrating on Latin music. Irina is warm, patient, understanding and does a great job verbally, and of course physically, teaching the art of dance. She was impressively able to jump back and forth btwn teaching the male vs female roles in merengue, salsa, and bachata, so that my husband and I were able to equally learn and understand consistently throughout the process. Irina was always on time and disciplined with keeping her and our schedule on track. She was even awesome enough to let us bring our dog to lessons and would always kindly remember to bring treats for him. We were super grateful for Irina’s professionalism and will continue to work with her even after our wedding Bc the dance lessons are a great way to spend date nights!

Jose Is a great instructor and person. After only a few lessons I have learned a lot especially that I do not have two left feet. With Jose's encouragement and patience I am looking forward to learning a lot more.

My husband and I can't recommend Olga enough to anyone looking to take dance lessons. We asked her to choreograph our wedding song. We wanted a slow song to start and then have it pick up to a fast song. She did such an excellent job. Our guests at the wedding loved it. She was fun to work with and very encouraging. She helped us create such a special moment we will never forget!

My Dance lessons with Jes were some of the best I've ever had. She got me off my feet and showed me what West Coast Swing was all about. She was always, always professional, on time, and for a great price too. I now think of her as a good friend and I'm always excited when she comes to Texas.

My daughter has great experiences working Brenda and loves to work with her! Brenda has been in ballet business for many years and has experiences. She can customize and indivisualize the lessons based on the level. My daughter has developed and refined many skills since working with Brenda. We highly recommend Brenda for ballet private lessons!!

My experience with Broadway Bound was exceptional. The training in dance - voice lessons and the “Workshop” program were intense in the best of ways. I learned what it takes to be a true triple threat, and I also gained a ton of confidence by the classes provided by Broadway Bound. Not only did I gain experience is the artistic world, I also gained a second family. The love, friendship and praise for one another was in all ways a “dream come true”. I still have many best friends from Broadway Bound today. I am now a professional dancer at The Metropolitan Opera ( second season ) and I have performed in 6 professional productions of “West Side Story” where I played Chino / Sharks, toured the USA in Chicago the Musical with Christie Brinkley, Brandy, Jerry Springer, Jennifer Nettles and more stars, one Off-Broadway credit and a list of professional productions including Mamma Mia, Sweet Charity, and Man of La Mancha to name a few. This is possible because of the strong training I gained while attending Broadway Bound. The hard work paid off and is still paying off. Thank you Broadway Bound from the bottom of my heart. When you attend Broadway Bound , please enjoy every single second and have fun!

Cara showed me how to dance all the Latin dances that I asked her to teach me. She was most helpful and knowledgeable with rhythm ,dance moves and leading and made me feel confident to be on the dance floor and to dance with different partners. I recommend her to any lady or man wishing to learn to dance.

Andrianna was our dance instructor for salsa lessons and the hustle. She is a very patient person, especially when your husband had two left feet. When we decided to choreograph a dance for our wedding, she easily transitioned us into swing with a bit of hustle in the middle. It's great taking classes with her as she knows when to step in and take the lead, pretty much to quell any arguments. And her choreography was so fun! Resort said it was the best dance they'd seen! She was even there to rehearse with us. I cannot recommend her enough! Amazing ...

We needed a dance instructor that was able to work with us around our tight schedules & someone who was also affordable. Ellis Roderick met all of our needs and went above and beyond what we ever expected. He choreographed a unique, amazing wedding dance routine for us and taught us “how” to dance like we were on dancing with the stars. He was fun, experienced, encouraging, professional, and awesome! He even invited us to join his adult competition dance team by the end of our lessons. We would definitely recommend anyone who wants to have fun and learn how to dance...go to Ellis!!

I had a short period of lessons from Eno, he was one of the best ballroom dance instructors I ever had. Picked up my weak points quickly and spent so much time to correct and answered all my endless questions till I was fully satisfied; hence, I didn't hesitate to ask anything I wondered and could talk openly, which is very important to build a good dancing relationship. By looking at his way to dance and teach, I thought he had danced almost 10 years but actually it was much less surprisingly. He must be so talented. I wish he were in my town, would highly recommend to all levels of dancers!!

I took dance lessons with Ashleigh and they were fun! She's a great technical dancer. She worked hard to help me improve my salsa and swing dancing and really emphasized the basics and connection. She's great to work with for people first starting to dance as well as more seasoned dancers looking to take their dancing skills to higher levels. Ashleigh has danced her whole life, with tons of experience, and knows many styles of dancing that comes from a lifetime of learning. If you are a wedding couple, I have no doubt that she can help you choreograph a routine that will fit your style and comfort level. You will be in great hands with her!

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.
