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!Feb 19, 2019
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!Jan 27, 2019
- 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
