Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!

I started dancing when I was 17 and did all exams (in Europe, international standard) up to Super Gold Star (awarded with distinction).

I teach and tutor kids and adults for more than 10 years now.
I am a happy teacher / tutor with takelessons for more than a year now.

About Marcel
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

I am a competitive ballroom pro/am student and I’ve been dancing and competing for years. I had the privilege of studying ballroom dance with Rosaria. She is one of the most talented and beautiful dancers I have ever seen. What makes her an outstanding teacher, however, is her ability to teach. She knows what needs to be done step by step. Whether it’s basic technique, or styling, or even choreography, Rosaria was able to help me improve each time. She works tirelessly at finding different ways to explain the techniques she is teaching. I learned and enjoyed my dancing more with her than with any other ballroom teacher. Ever. Her professionalism, her dedication, and her artistry are one of a kind.

Have fun while learning something new, or improving on a skill you've been working on! I have never met a person that was unteachable. I specialize in Ballroom and Latin Style dancing and love to bring passion and fun to every lesson.

I grew up dancing Ballet, Jazz, Tap, and Baton, and later added Hip Hop, Modern, and Ballroom to my repertoire. I spent four years as an instructor and manager at Arthur Murray and really fell in love with teaching. I miss being at the studio on a daily basis and am hoping to bring dance and joy to more people via takelessons.com.

I also specialize in wedding dance instruction - whether you are looking for a choreographed first dance or just to feel comfortable moving together on your big day. I am your girl!

About Melissa
I've always loved to dance. I took every lesson available as a kid, choreographed dances in the back of my first job during downtime (Subway Sandwiches in Leola!), studied Theatre, Film, and Dance in College, and quickly moved through the ranks at Arthur Murray Dance Studios as a Silver Certified Instructor and Manager.

Not only do I have a passion for dance, but I also have a passion for people. I loved teaching at Arthur Murray and watching how dance positively impacted both my students and myself. I was also named Top Instructor and Top Executive during the 2015 Arthur Murray International Dance Festival.

5 Stars is the highest ranking and is not easily obtained. I have know Mellissa for over 5 years relative to dance. She was my 3rd dance instructor but my best, extremely knowledgeable, professional and patient. There is not an aspect of dance that she is not familiar with. She can Move you past and beyond your trouble spots and onto the next level. You cannot find a better instructor! I actually think it is her calling!

This is the perfect opportunity to get in the swing of things. For an aspiring dancer private lessons are the fastest route for improvement, because all the attention is on you.

You will develop the confidence and skills to dance in social settings from clubs to weddings.

My name is Alfredo. I was a Correctional Officer recently. I am a proud father and a great friend. I have had several jobs in the past, the one I was most passionate about was teaching dance. I taught for Fred Astaire, Arthur Murray, and a few independent studios over the course of about 14 years. I started early in High School. My picture shows Karina and I at the prom for senior year. I was a T.A. for special needs children and she needed a date for prom, I gladly volunteered. I bit off more than I could chew though so I started taking lessons at Fred Astaire. I would go to High School during the day and then hop a bus and study at the dance school at night. After months of training and watching videos of heartfelt stories involving dance I was inspired and haven't looked back. I took her to prom and once I figured out I could do something that amazing for someone I was hooked. I tried the starving artist deal for a long time then decided to get a "real job". I have been working in
