My name is Steve and I have been dancing/teaching different styles of dance for 7 years now. I specialize in teaching beginners and I enjoy watching my students progress quickly and meet their goals. If you have always wanted to learn a specific type of dance but never knew where to start then I think my services would be a perfect fit for you.

I can teach East Coast Swing, Foxtrot, Waltz, Cha-Cha, Rumba, Tango, and Salsa. I also teach Wedding Dances if you are looking to look sharp on your special day!! Group classes and country line dances are available if you are looking to entertain party guests or host a reoccurring social event.

My services are available in all of San Diego County at any location you can provide. Most of my lessons take place at the student's residence but I am flexible as long as the student provides the alternate location. See prices below and I look forward to introducing dance into your life.

About Steven

My personality matches my teaching style which is laid back. I believe that everyone who wants to dance should have a chance to. I think that some beginner teachers focus too much on the technique and forget to make lessons fun and exciting. My biggest skill is helping beginners gain confidence so

Chris is one of the most down to earth, well rounded, and talented people I know! He is a master of many crafts and makes me feel calm and at peace. He is the best yoga/Pilates coach, and has so much to offer as an experienced singer/actor/performer with an extensive theatrical background. He will brighten your day and dedicate himself to helping you perfect your craft. I highly recommend him!

I have been working professionally in the industry from a very young age, and as a current working actor, I know what is happening in the audition rooms, and how to help guide & teach young actors so they can grow and be confident. Not only have I taught for over 5+ years, but I have performed with actors of varying ages, which has helped me to really connect and make sure I can help students find age appropriate material that they can identify with & enjoy working on while they navigate what it means to be an actor.

About Chelsea

Hi there! Looking to work on new audition material, prepare for a callback, improve your cold-reading skills, and more? I'm eager to work with you! I'm a professional working actor/singer who has been in the business since I was a child, and after years of working both in Los Angeles & New York

great lesson!

I just finished my third lesson with Taylor. We are doing piano / digital music production hybrid course, but we are starting with learning to read sheet music as we both agree it will be a very useful skill to have down the line when I start doing my own compositions...even if my focus is digital production.

She is a fantastic teacher, explains concepts clearly, and is patient with my slow learning curve. She also very professionally handles student progress notes, and always emails copies of all relevant notes on each lesson for easy review and practice.

I'm very pleased to have started my journey into the world of music with her as my guide. Five stars.
Geane R.
This was my first lesson, so it’’s a little difficult to critique; however, Taylor was patient with me, and ,knowledgeable, interesting and informative. I like that.
