private instruction

Private instruction provides one-on-one feedback tailored to your individual needs and interests. It is highly recommended for students of any ability who are serious about taking their dancing to the next level. You will get information not readily available in a group class, designed for your level, your style, and your goals.

Live, In-Person
To arrange an in-person private lesson with Eric either in the San Francisco Bay Area or at another event, please email him for scheduling.

Virtual Private Lessons
For those who are able to work in-person with Eric, you may schedule a virtual private lesson. A virtual private lesson offers in-depth instruction like an in-person private lesson, where you dance and receive instruction, or where we review videos, or where we just talk more about how to work on your dancing – but remotely via Skype or FaceTime. This is an excellent option for those who have worked with Eric through workshops and intensives and want ongoing coaching to continue their progress. To schedule a virtual private lesson, please email him.

Video Critiques
Video critiques are convenient for those who want brief guidance on where to improve. For a critique, you would upload a video of 1-2 minutes (filmed from the side) to YouTube or DropBox and To schedule a virtual private lesson, please send an email to request a critique. In your email, please include a brief summary of your dance background, your dance goals, what you have been working on most recently, and what if anything you would like Eric to focus on in reviewing your video. Within a week, you will receive a written assessment of your dancing, as well as advice and recommendations for improvement.
