Naomi was obviously a great instructor and taught us our wedding dance, but she also made the lessons very fun. Her tips were very useful in helping us understand moves and timing. She also went beyond just instructing “dance moves” but also making our First Dance into a Performance. We would highly recommend Naomi as an instructor!

Naomi is an extremely gifted instructor. She has an amazing talent for making the complex simple and fun to learn. I had some trepidation about trying to learn to dance, but Naomi is so patient, gracious, and kind in her approach you can’t help but enjoy yourself. If you want to learn to dance you won’t find a better teacher. Thanks so much Naomi! You rock!

Naomi makes learning Salsa a lot of fun. Her knowledge of dance steps as well as her patient teaching style has made a Salsa “newbie” like me feel very comfortable with learning this wonderful style of dance. Before I started my classes with her, Naomi took the time to meet with me to determine what my goals were, and to assess my dancing skill level. It’s great to learn from someone who is willing to get to know more about you as a potential student. Learning step after step has been so much fun thanks to Naomi’s knowledge and patience. You will TRULY have fun learning with Naomi. She is a joy!!

Naomi is an attentive, cheerful, and encouraging teacher of dance and body consciousness. With poise and seeming effortlessness, she introduced our regular, semi-private group to the dance forms, music, and culture of Salsa and other Latin American dances. I would highly recommend Naomi to beginners of all stripes– those of us interested in the technical, physical and cultural aspects, or even just the fun aspect, of social dance.

Naomi Rieger brings style, grace and precision to her teaching. Her attention to detail and technique is fantastic. I’ve learned a great deal about dancing from Naomi and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!

When I would dance, I never knew that with the right instruction, you could have even more fun, knowing that how you dance is sound! Naomi, uses humor and kindness to her approach with her student’s, allowing them space to learn and grow as a dancer!

Naomi is spirited, skilled, and patient. Her teaching style is open and accommodating, while at the same time being disciplined and precise. She combines her good sense of humor with her years of experience to make sure that you learn to dance while having fun!
Thanks again for everything~

My wife and I have always danced well together but I struggled with my ability to lead others. I sought out Naomi’s help specifically to be able to dance with new partners. She has had a deep knowledge of every dance I have asked her about. Naomi’s instruction has been amazing and she has adapted easily with any request I have made. I am now able to dance with any woman out on the floor. Along with her technical instruction she has given me an amazing perspective on the Argentine Tango. I eagerly anticipate every lesson.
