Introduction: Do you want to look good and have fun dancing? Do you have zero experience dancing with your partner? And of course you don't want embarrass yourself, or spend lots of time and money learning to dance? Then I'm your man. Dance is all about connecting to your partner and to the music. The problem: dance isn't taught that way. Instead, most instructors force you into repetitive footwork and styles before you understand the WHY behind what you're doing. After suffering through years of studio lessons, I developed a teaching method that helps couples discover the power of connection in movement and music. It's done in the comfort of your own home - so no more intimidating other couples - and without the added costs required by a studio. I bring a speaker, a whiteboard, and we jump right in - with an inventively fun, surprisingly simple, and nicely affordable way. This is a huge passion for me, and here's why: the magic "click" moment. It happens with every couple I teach - when they stop thinking and start creating something beautiful together. Skill level and age never matter - this always happens, and is a huge motivator for me to keep on doing what I do.

Wedding Dance Lessons

Josh listened carefully to our motivations and goals for our dance lessons. His teaching style is very fun & relaxing, while ensuring that we will reach our goals for our first dance as husband and wife.... as well dancing at future parties!

Private Dance Lessons

Josh did a great job. The lesson was fun, and both my wife and myself learned a lot. We are looking forward to the next lesson. 100% improvement over any dance lessons we have taken in the past

Dance Lessons

We hired Josh to help us with our wedding dance - his style is amazing. My husband and I had tried to take professional dance lessons but were so uncomfortable - josh held the lessons in our home and it was wonderful. We had one on one time with him and he even stayed longer than the one hour time to help us with areas we weren't grasping. I highly recommend him - you will be much more comfortable dancing with your partner after he is through with you!

Dance Lessons

My fiancée and I were both very nervous about dancing at our wedding. After a couple lessons with Josh, we feel WAY more confident. We're having fun dancing together and we're building skills that we'll have forever!

Dance Lessons

Joshua is amazing! We scheduled three lessons to get ready for our wedding dance - nothing choreographed, just making sure we don't step on each other's feet - and my fiance and I are VERY confident in our dance skills now. Joshua is a great teacher and really understands what you want out of the lessons.

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

    I'll make this simple. Three lessons, and you're set to look good and have fun dancing together, for the rest of your life. To all kinds of music. We can do more lessons on request of course, but that's what I find works best for most couples. I do standalone lessons at $99 a pop, and the three-lesson package for a discounted $250 even.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I've taught young fiances, retirees looking to learn something fun, and groups up to 300 people.

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    What does your picture of "success" look like for you after dance lessons? Your answer should completely change what kind of instructor you choose. Some want to start learning olympic-level ballroom dancing, and plan to regularly go to ballrooms in the foreseeable future to dance. That's great - I've done that - but not what I teach now. I find that most just want to look good and have fun together more informally - to maybe not embarrass themselves at weddings, or add a nice date night activity to their list. That's what I teach.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
