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.

We had a fun, informative first dance lesson. Looking forward to more!

Josh was the absolute best instructor! We went from having no rhythm and my hubby stepping on my feet to dancing in front of a room full of people to an entire song. Everyone was legitimately raving about our first dance (even still). My husband feels a lot more confident dancing in public now that he knows some moves (he was actually the one to ask me to dance instead of the other way around on our honeymoon). Josh made us feel comfortable and made the impossible possible and we always be thankful for that!

Josh is an amazing teacher. And just fun to have around. Unique approach to teaching -- how to lead/follow before worrying about details. We've taken lessos before but still couldn't enjoy it. After two lessons with Josh, we can actually Dance!

FAQs

  • 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 $120 a pop, and the three-lesson package for a discounted $300 even.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Fourteen years of dance instruction experience - started this business then, and have been improving the curriculum ever since!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    In high school, a girl asked me out to get ballroom dance lessons. While the girl and I didn't work out, I fell in love with dance, and immediately poured myself into learning to dance.
