Stephanie is an absolute pleasure to learn from. She is kind and competent and will very quickly have you at a level where you can comfortably dance on your own.

She is a genuinely nice person and takes the time to learn the way that you learn so that she can teach you in a manner best suited to the way you learn. I had so much fun in my first few lessons with Stephanie leading up to a trip where I wanted to be able to do some swing dancing with friends. On the first day I briefly outlined my objectives with her and over the next handful of lessons we achieved them all. I am so happy to I decided to move forward with Stephanie and look forward to being her student for a long time!

Stephanie is amazing. She is so sweet and patient and I highly recommend her and her class. She is very talented and knowledgeable for the advanced dancer and she also explains and demonstrates the dance steps in an easy to understand way for complete beginners like myself.

I love ballroom dancing and I hope you will as well. I have worked with both children and adults for the last 30 years. I know how to make learning ballroom dancing understandable and enjoyable.

I can make it simple and easy to learn whether you want it for your own enjoyment or for a specific event like your wedding.

Although I love music, I don't sing or play an musical instrument. Dancing has always been my way to connect with and enjoy music. Moving to music is the ultimate experience for me.

In teaching, I hope that I can share that experience with my students.

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

Corey B.
I am a music teacher and I am very picky about who my son takes lessons with because I can tell right away if someone knows what they are doing. I could tell from the first lesson that Tanya was knowledgeable and she cared about giving good instruction. Tanya does not dumb down the material; she makes the student work. Nevertheless, my son is very happy with his lessons and tells all his friends how much fun he is having! The balance between discipline and fun is difficult to achieve but Tanya does it effortlessly. Kudos!

I have taught and choreographed professionally for almost 8 years, and started dancing 21 years ago. I am passionate about teaching the technique to dancing, but also how to move their body with style. I have trained and worked with some of the top choreographers in LA and have a large amount of experience in the dance industry. I can teach jazz, technique, hip hop, jazz funk, lyrical, and contemporary.With a background in yoga, I ensure you are listening to your body to prevent injuries and having proper form. I love to help kids and adults build their confidence, brand themselves as dancers, and give them top training with the years of knowledge I have.
