Introduction: As we look towards the end of the long national Covid19 crisis! we’re now offering studio lessons again: 25 West 31st Street, NYC Virtual dance lessons via zoom or FaceTime on weekend evenings. * The Thumbtack special: $75/lesson for in-person lessons is 20% the normal $95 single lesson rate; * Zoom lessons are $65; Dancing isn’t hard! You just have to learn how to do it, because we’re not born knowing it. My focus is on wedding/ First dance and beginner dancers: we've 20 years experience, specific knowledge and the personal edge necessary to make your dance lessons a great, fun and productive experience. Always focused and interesting, the lessons are romantic plus you'll learn a life skill -- (along the way to wowing guests at your wedding!) I demystify the process of learning how to dance., because everything’s easy, once you know how. I help couples learn how to dance or learn how to put a wonderful, simple (or complex!) wedding dance together, hopefully making the process a fun element in the midst of all the stress!

Wedding Dance Lessons

My dad and I had our first (virtual!) lesson with Peter today to prepare for my wedding this fall. Peter was super patient, upbeat and thoughtful. Excited for more lessons!

Within just a few dance lessons, Peter had my dad and me dancing like pros. Neither of us knew the first thing about dancing, but by the time we finished, we felt so comfortable. Peter is a fantastic instructor. He simplified each step for us and helped us master each one. I highly recommend Peter. He’s amazing!

Peter is a phenomenal dance instructor. He helped my wife and I prepare for our ambitious first dance less than a month before our wedding and thanks to him, we nailed it!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am currently offering a 12% off Thumbtack special, so the normal single lesson rate for Thumbtack clients is $75! Keep an eye on the website Rates page for specials.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Learning how to move together as one unit, using simple elements . Starting from wherever you are, I work with you on fundamentals and build your dance, without focusing too heavily on exact choreography. Exact choreography means that you are either right or wrong every second, which is hard! Communication is the key, using the new non verbal language you are learning.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Fred Astaire/ Pierre Dulaine/ DVIDA certified, Peter has taught and performed independently, at MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S SWING, the Broadway Theater Institute, at HB Studio, Columbia University, Cornell University, Trinity College (Dublin), with Cailin Heffernan's Manhattan Dance/Theater and at the Theater Workshop. He has helped wedding couples create their first dance for 20 years, using social dancing as the foundation, not competitive dancing! Competitive dancers teach what they know, which is different from the comfort and ease that wedding couples generally need
