Mark Ballas Dance Pleasanton is a premiere dance studio in beautiful sunny Pleasanton, California. We offer private and group lessons that cater to all types and levels of dancers. Our studio has carefully made programs for both competitive and social dancers alike! We also offer competitive pricing and new student discounts for those interested in trying our services. We offer a wealth of expertise in all of the popular partner dances including West Coast Swing and Ballroom.
My own personal experience as a dancer includes over 9 years of social and competitive ballroom dance experience and 3 years of dance instruction at Premier Ballroom Studio. I am also an accomplished dance shoe and supplies vendor at competitions and have worked at the Premier Dance Shoe Store, Ballroom Connection for an additional 3 years.

First and foremost I want to understand what the students goals are and help them create a plan or process for us to achieve those goals. Whether its competition, fitness, or enjoyment, every ambition has it's own value and one is not greater than the other. From there, we decide schedules and other details based on the limitations both on myself and the student.
I have been teaching for 3 years in social dance, was the president and coach of the SJSU Dancesport team for over 5 years, and also have worked as a competition vendor for 3 years. I have much experience in all aspects of ballroom dance and have been competing consistently for over 9 years.

I was President of my local collegiate Ballroom Dancing Team and to help our team fundraise and save on coaching costs I spent years working on my skills in teaching and put my own personal funds into taking lessons that would help me become a better instructor.
All ages of all different wakes of life.
I am particularly fond of the USA Dance Nationals in Baltimore and the Us National Amateur Dancesport Championships in Provo.
Go with an instructor whose style of relaying information works well with you. Don't pick a teacher based on rankings or titles. A teacher who can teach effectively is what you want to strive for.
