I'm available to teach mini-group classes of up to 6 people. (I am no longer teaching group dance classes at the Berkeley YMCA).
Mini-group dance classes are a fun activity to do with your friends or family! Learning in a small group means you'll get lots of individualized attention—at a lower cost than private lessons.
Group classes taught at ballroom studios and other venues don't work for everyone—they can be too fast paced and/or dancing with strangers feels uncomfortable. Many of my students tell me how comfortable and successful they feel in my classes—so different from their experience feeling intimidated, uncoordinated or lost in regular group classes.
My teaching style is fun and friendly, and I go at a pace that's slow and steady. Whether your group are absolute beginners, experienced dancers or a mix, we can customize a class series to meet your needs in a range of dance styles (see list below of the dances I teach)
Come get the skills and confidence you need to shine on the dance floor!
First we'll decide how many classes your group wants to start with. If possible, we find a day and time to meet on a weekly basis for the length of the series. I usually teach weeknights after work hours and on Sundays. Contact me for current availability.
My private studio is located in Oakland near the Dimond District (view approx map)
Price varies depending on the size of the group and length of the class series.
