    Mary D.

    I have worked with another Thumbtack dancer but he is in LA and has choreographed my son's and his Mothers(me) wedding dance. I wanted to find someone who could help me memorize and practice the dance. I hired Natasha and she has been fabulous. She took the dance, music and reduced it to a written outline in short order. She is great!!

  5. #5 LaVida Dance & Yoga Studio

    (5 reviews)

    Lena D.

    We hired the team to teach our guests how to dance at our wedding. I was kind of expecting them to learn how to dance our first dance as a slow couple dance (waltz etc...) then something else more fun afterwards. But I guess the communication was not clear so we were only taught Bachata/Salsa. Overall, it was fun though. Thanks!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Dance! Eclectic

(13 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I have danced all my life, and I love it. Dancing makes people happy. It's impossible to be sad or grumpy while you're dancing. I'm also a certificated classroom teacher, and I've taught people aged three to ninety-three. It's absolute serendipity that I get to combine my passion and my profession to help people learn something as fun, healthy and happy as dancing.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I've been self-employed for over 30 years--doing other things for the first almost 15 years. Then, almost 20 years ago, my son reminded me that I loved to dance and teach. It was a natural fit.

    Dance! Eclectic

    (13 reviews)

    My husband and I loved working with Linda to prepare for the first dance at our wedding! She embodies that rare combination of being a gifted and inspirational teacher + a pure joy to be around. When we started, we had no absolutely clue how to dance and worried about our first dance for MONTHS... but under Linda's joy-filled and gentle guidance, we learned how to dance (and felt great doing it!) At our wedding, we got compliments on our first dance! People said we looked so smooth and graceful, like real professionals (and this is amazing because we had zero dance skills before we met Linda.) We now feel comfortable dancing in almost any setting, and we have so much fun doing it. We no longer feel shy or inhibited... we just dance and enjoy ourselves! This is all thanks to Linda, who has a knack for helping people find their confidence. She helped us discover the joy in every movement. Our dance lessons are some of our very favorite memories from our wedding planning days, and I smile when I think of them. Any couple would be lucky to work with Linda -- she spreads joy just by being herself and helps clumsy people feel super elegant :) She's also unfailing prompt, very reasonably priced (dancing is a skill you can use for life, brings so much joy, and her lessons were worth every penny), and she responds quickly to emails. We HIGHLY recommend her to every engaged couple!

    Studio 6 Ballroom Event Hall & Studios

    (13 reviews)

    I started dancing at the studio 3 months ago. In one month, I was at my first competition with no previous dance lessons. Now people ask me how long I have been dancing and are really surprised I haven't been dancing longer. Natasha and Wes make otherwise difficult steps easy to learn in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.

    I provide personal training and nutrition advice to all fitness backgrounds. If you're looking for just a boost in the right direction or need to tone and shed pounds, I am here for you.

  • Ballroom Dance Lessons

    Aria Ballroom

    (3 reviews)

    As a student of Simeon and Kora’s for the past two years, I can say that they are great teachers and more than qualified to teach wedding dance lessons to couples aspiring to do something original and beautiful for their first dance. Simeon and Kora are particularly good at teaching these kind of lessons because they always tailor lessons toward what you the student wants to get out of them, so if you want help coming up with a routine to a particular song you have chosen, or even need help picking one, want to learn some basic social dancing steps, or something else, they will help you make the most out of the experience. In terms of qualifications, Simeon and Kora are internationally recognized competitive ballroom dancers, but they also have many years of teaching experience and have put together countless shows and performances, both themselves and with students, so they really are experts in putting together show quality choreography. Simeon and Kora are flexible, easy to work with, and fun, so expect to have a great time learning your wedding dance! If in the process you should happen to get bitten by the “dancing bug,” Simeon and Kora will be able to take you to the next level to pursue further dance goals.

  • Children's Dance Lessons

    Children's Dance Theater

    Our program is developed around children's developmental landmarks. We believe that children should be allowed to learn through play, be inspired by music, and utilize their imagination to experience movement. Our proven methods have brought the joy of dance to hundreds of children. We hope that you will consider CDT for your budding ballerina. Philosophy Statement: Children's Dance Theater was founded in September 2006 with the mission to provide dance lessons to the Auburn community and surrounding areas through age appropriate choreography, costumes, and music. Our programs works to provide high-quality dance training in a family friendly atmosphere. The Children's Division consists of four levels and is for dancers from 2-7 years old. These students come to class once a week to gain a solid foundation in dance technique but to also gain self-confidence, develop a strong work ethic, and a love of dance. The Children's Division does have a dress code that is enforced; however, we do realize that on occasion, life gets in the way. That is why we have a borrow box with shoes and various other items for those emergency situations. Hair help is always available if needed and we have a "better late then never" tardy policy. Our lobby has comfortable seating for parents to wait in, and there is a small selection of toys for younger siblings to play with. Our studios have viewing windows so you can watch class progress and there are 4 observation weeks throughout the year so you can take your own photos and videos. During class your child will enjoy a creative movement-based method dance class. This syllabus system not only allows your child to learn basic dance steps but helps to teach them quality of movement and provides an imaginative and stimulating dance class. Dancers are rewarded for their good behavior and hard work through dance stamps to encourage appropriate class etiquette. Dancers 3 and up have the opportunity to be in our December and June shows. They learn a routine in class and perform this routine in the theater during one of our 45-60 minute shows. The School Division is for dancers ages 8 and above, and marks the beginning of their formal training. Emphasis is placed on alignment, muscular strength, and flexibility, as well as continuing the step and technique knowledge learned in previous dance years. Dancers may be required to attend multiple classes a week, depending on the class level. Our program values each child, and works to nurture the whole dancer. Our faculty gets to know each of their students and help them to become the best dancer that their body will allow them to be. We acknowledge and teach the dancers about their personal challenges while encouraging them to attain each level's class standards. A love of dance and strong work ethic continues to grow in the School Division. Choreography becomes more complex through steps, formations, musicality, character, and concepts to begin creating the artist within each dancer. Children's Dance Theater also works to serve the families of dancers. Affordability is one of our founding values, and we work hard to keep tuition, costume prices, tickets and other fees low. Our schedule is developed with families in mind; we work very hard to have back-to-back classes. Our unique dance software allows families to log-in and view their account, arrange for a make up class, or take care of a payment 24 hours a day. We also have a parents association, where volunteers help out in various aspects to keep studio prices low. Children's Dance Theater offers classes in classical ballet, jazz, hip hop, tap, lyrical, and more. 10 Reasons to choose CDT: 1. age appropriate choreography, costumes, and music 2. family friendly and low stress environment 3. affordable tuition 4. excellent faculty and staff 5. sprung dance floor and "glass-less" mirrors 6. viewing windows 7. three annual performances 8. in-studio dance boutique 9. you can videotape the performances 10. ballerina birthday parties and other special events
