I have been teaching dance my whole life, beginning with ballet to children at the age of twelve. For the past 5 years, I taught and danced ballroom 40+ hours a week in a studio. I became internationally certified to instruct 11 different partner dances. Through the studio, I got the chance to teach people of all different abilities, backgrounds, and walks of life. I am very experienced in creating a personalized lesson plan geared to YOU and your dance goals. I now teach freelance which has allowed me to cater to an even wider variety of people and dance goals. I am available to teach just about any hour of the day, and I am able to travel to you to teach you in the comfort of your home. Learning to dance with me could not be easier!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do you wear to swing dance lessons?

Swing dance is an increasingly popular style of ballroom dance with a dress code that reflects its roots in the 1920s-1940s jazz era. Although many studios don’t require historically accurate costumes for their private dance lessons, many dancers want to dress the part. You can wear clothes that are comfortable to move — and sweat — in, such as T-shirts and loose skirts or khakis. Or for an appropriately vintage look, women often wear shirt dresses with a knee-length A-line or circle skirt that allows for plenty of swishy movement. Men usually opt for a button-down shirt and trousers. The most important part of a swing dance outfit is the shoes. Both men and women can opt for simple sneakers, like Keds, or leather dance shoes, such as saddle shoes. Until you have several dance lessons under your belt, stay away from heels.

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.

My friend and I thought we’d like to learn to salsa dance. After checking out several dance schools we picked Conner Dancesport and we had the best time!! He was professional and fun! He made learning the basics a breeze. We will be signing up for more lessons for sure! I highly recommend him.

Phil is a PRO dancer and instructor. I hired him to help ME and my wedding party dance apporiately. He is capable of working with all different types of people with different needs. I brought my dad to the first lesson. He showed us simple technique for Father/daughter dance. With little to no dance experience, I can honestly say I FEEL more comfortable with my movement (with my dad) after a short hour with Phil. I can’t wait for my fiancée to meet Phil!
