45 min Private Partner Dance Lesson


75 per unit

I've been a professional dancer and educator for 10 years and own a boutique partner and social dancing instructional studio in Hillcrest. I have a pretty specialized method of helping people from all levels understand partner dancing much better to help them make dances like Salsa, Argentine Tango, American Ballroom or Latin FEEL comfortable, confident and connected. I specialize in Salsa and Argentine but I have been in professional Ballroom for almost a decade and can teach a wide variety of styles and help you understand how music and social dance works together. Dancing is a wonderful activity for couples to connect over and for individuals to understand their body and use of physicality and energy as well as just have fun, work out mentally and physically, and enjoy a social activity. It's also excellent for wedding couples! So many unique benefits and I love to help people discover them all! It's amazing how much you can learn in a 45 minute lesson! We start by improving your connection and you can learn whatever dance steps you like. Usually in the first lesson we cover connection and between 1 and 3 basic moves depending on your learning curve:)

Training & Qualifications

Professional Ballroom dancer and instructor for 10 years. Wrote thesis on Argentine Tango in Buenos Aires. Certified in 12 major dance styles. Opened for Dancing with the Stars once upon a time and my clients love me on yelp!:)

Availability & Preferences

private lessons are flexible and are by appointment only (locally PST). once in a blue moon i teach via skype but I don't think it's the best bc partner dance is so kinesthetic!

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Cori was INCREDIBLE. I took a private lesson with her and she broke things down so much to where I could make sense of things. It was so enjoyable and... she's a wonderful person to be around. We are planning many more deals in the future!show more

This is fascinating! I was so excited to discover this platform today. As an artist, I constantly get asked to work for free and that de-values me and my work so this is wonderful to see a platfo...

About Corina Presutti

Hi! My name is Cori and I'm the owner of the dual arts company Cori-ography Dance and Cori & The Music. I provide my clients with the most personal and the highest quality dance instruction and mus...ic performance services in San Diego. My partner dance studio Cori-ography is known for being the best partner and social dance instruction in San Diego! It's a sweet little boutique studio in Hillcrest geared to be comfortable and warm and not intimidating at all and focused on helping people through a personalized teaching approach that works for their own learning style and goals. For me, the most important things in life and business are Connection, Communication, Community, and Heart. And that is, in the big picture, exactly what dance and music are. More importantly than just Ballroom or Latin Dance, I teach people the power and importance of Partner and Social Dance style. Understanding the language of connection and the elements of social dancing give us a magical impromptu conversation on the floor with many different people and that conversation creates the community with all of those who share those elements! My love of partner dancing and teaching connection began while writing my thesis on the Argentine Tango studying in Buenos Aires. That landed me in the world of American Professional Ballroom after returning to the states and branched off into special interest in the most improvisational social styles like Salsa. Over the last decade of teaching, dancing, and performing, I've had the privilege of opening for the Dancing With The Stars tour, dancing around the world, and working with people of all ages to introduce the joy of dance and teach the art of connection. My favorite thing is seeing my student's faces when they're dancing together and they get it- so much love, laughter and happiness! As a professional musician, I'm at the tail end of production season to release my 4th recording project but first full studio album. I'm a pianist singer-songwriter. I've been playing since I was 3 and writing since I was 16. I've been selected to compete recently as one of the top singer-songwriters in San Diego which is pretty cool! Like dance, music to me is about communicating. It's about sharing a story with people- both beloved and total strangers. It's about connecting and figuring out the human experience- from the very dark to lighthearted. As an artist, I believe having a voice and a message to stand with is very important and I do my best to do that through music. I have a 7 piece band complete with horn section. We play all originals with a great cross-genre, soul influenced sound. I love everything about music. It is in fact my first love. It provides a soundtrack to all of our lives and makes everything so much more colorful! I also play as a professional pianist for wedding ceremonies and cocktail receptions but I prefer the artistic side of music for sure! Lastly, I work as a women's empowerment leader. I provide group community meetings and support systems to women looking to discuss, educate, enlighten and empower themselves! I love learning, languages, travel, people, and the arts! (and food and my dog). I speak Spanish, Italian and Portuguese but the latter two have slipped from fluency! Use it or lose it!show more
