Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: ABOUT I am the owner and lead dancer of the Dancing Designer, a creative production company. I am a professional dancer with over 12 years experience performing with major recording artist, for music videos, movies, TV shows + award shows. My unique process involves working from the students natural body movement while encompassing the performance elements of body movement + musicality. This organic process helps to solidify the student’s skill set, dance capabilities and confidence. I love teaching my clients the basic fundamentals and biology of their bodies. It’s amazing to see my students connect to their bodies and/or partners while having an “ah-ha” moment by discovering dance in a refreshing way. When working with couples I enjoy seeing them grow as they learn to trust each other along with the many levels of intimacy dance allows them to have.

I recently hired Dancing Designer to help me with some choreography for a tryout. I had minimum dance experience and they helped me so much just finding what I'm skilled at and what works with my body. They made it so fun and were super lenient about how the lessons went. Great facilities too, super fun:)

Details: 18-25 • One person (one-on-one with instructor) • Hip hop • Beginner • Preparing for an event / performance • 60 minutes • More than once a week • At the pro’s location

My 9 year old son became interested in getting hip hop dance lessons and so I researched local dance studios and thumbtack. I got contacted by Tonisha of Dancing Designer promptly with various scenarios to work within my busy schedule. But due to the circumstances of the nationwide shut down we were offered zoom/remote one-on-one classes for my son. We got introduced to another instructor and have been having 2 classes a week for about 2 months now. I love the personalities of Lawson and Tonisha and their knowledge, talent and professionalism. They took the time to see what type of music my son liked and who his dance influencers are. They are very accommodating to our schedule and my son. I highly recommend this group and I think for our lifestyle the remote dance classes are the best solution for us.

Details: 8-12 • One person (one-on-one with instructor) • Hip hop • No experience • Developing a hobby • 60 minutes • Once a week • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Tonisha and her assistant did a great job at walking my fiancé and I through some basic steps for our first dance. Neither of us had any experience dancing before, and ever after 1 lesson, we felt more secure and confident and could see improvement. Both she and her assistant were very professional!

Details: Two (ex. me and my partner) • First dance • What my teacher recommends • No, I do not have choreography in mind • No experience • My home, venue, etc.
