I've taken dance lessons in the past -both group and individual - and Gonzalo (Gonzo) has been the best. My wife and I wish to have a couple of dances somewhat perfected for upcoming weddings and such and Gonzo comes weekly to teach us in our home. He understands dancing and now we are understanding not only how, but why we do certain things on the dance floor. He is very good at what he does and I would recommend him to all.

In the midst of late-stage wedding planning, the thought came out of nowhere that it might be nice to take dance lessons. I brought this up to my fiancé and his immediate reaction was negative. We were already juggling too many vendors and responsibilities, he said. Where would we find the time, he asked. I reached out to Uttara anyway and scheduled a trial first class. We met her and immediately felt at ease. She asked us what song we had in mind, and when we played it for her (it's very different than the normal first dance fare) she thought about it for a second, remarked that it was different, then told us she knew exactly what kind of dance would go with it. And off we went! At the end of the first class, my fiancé was much more optimistic and we agreed to do the five class package. After the first few classes, we couldn't wait for our next class. Neither of us had any dancing experience but Uttara was always patient with us and never laughed at our clumsy mistakes. Her upbeat and postive energy went a long way to helping us learn, and she made every class so much fun! When it came time to pull off our big dance at our wedding, we somehow pulled it off and no one could believe what we had done! My mom kept clapping her cheeks and saying it was like DWTS (it was not) and the venue coordinator told us that in her ten years there, we were the first couple to do something like that. My friends' eyes were bugging out of their heads! It was so worth it, and a memory that we will cherish for the rest of our lives, and we owe it all to Uttara!

My husband and I are so glad we hired Kat to help us choreograph a surprise first dance routine for our wedding. Neither of us have any dance experience to speak of, and she was very patient with us while we stumbled through what I'm sure are very basic steps. She was able to gauge our abilities and our learning strengths very well, and above all, she was really honest about what we were doing well and what we needed to fix. Our guests were SO surprised to see what we had created with Kat - and we have so much fun with the process, from our first lesson to the final "performance." Would highly recommend Kat to anyone, even those with limited to no experience!

Raymond is one of the very best ballroom dancers in Maryland. My dance partner and I have been taking both private and group lessons from him, in 19 different types of dance, for almost 20 years. I study dance extensively, and find that he is able to answer my questions and point out where and what we need to do to improve. David Moore

I just recently began contemporary/modern/hip hop dance lessons with Brandy and I could not have asked for a better teacher! She is knowledgeable, paitient, and highly skilled. I would definitely recommend to everyone! I learned so much in just three weeks and will continue to learn so much as we move forward

    Olivia’s work quality and ethics are stellar. She is professionally trained in the areas of vocal performance, musical theatre and dance. Olivia is complimented by her ease in working well with others, is a bearer of high standards, is well liked by her colleagues and students, and has a natural ability to transform these art-forms into an experience that is believable, memorable and well done. Olivia brings value and recognition to each of her performances and students are eager to follow her careful lead and tutelage. Olivia demonstrates patience when working with her students and is genuine in her encouragement to have them do their best. She establishes high expectations for appropriate student behavior and for showing respect for one another in her classes. This is a hallmark of her teaching style. Olivia is complimentary for both individual and group effort and doesn’t shy away from insisting on repeated practice when working on mastery of new skills, executing techniques and demonstrating showmanship. Olivia has performed on stages nation-wide, in Western Europe, Asia and Canada. Whether on stage or in a dance studio, the great take-away is that everyone leaves having benefited; for being part of a job well done, an enjoyable experience, and most importantly, a smile.

    For TENNIS volume of students I teach per week during the peak of summer in classes and small groups is 80 - 100. In BALLROOM DANCING student evaluations of past classes have praise our instruction skills. Class size has grown consistently from 8 originally to over 20. In PIANO I can incorporate simple composing technique (if desired) into the lesson structure to enhance learning in a creative way.

      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.
