My husband and I took several CW dance lessons from Steve. We really enjoyed the experience, and we like his style of instruction. He's easy to understand, and is very patient. He shows by example, then dances with both of us individually, easily switching from the male role to the female role, and then has us dance together. Unfortunately, we can't afford as many lessons as we would like. $50/hour is a bit steep for us.
Steve has been a wonderful dance teacher. My husband and I have taken 2 lessons (two - step) from him and scheduled for a 3rd. We have seen great progress very quickly and our confidence level has raised significantly. And my husband would say the same...after nearly 21 years of marriage we went country dancing recently and had a great time actually dancing. We weren't the best (yet) but we knew what to do and had lots of fun. Steve is patient, funny and certainly knows how to make this fun and skilled at making you feel comfortable and relaxed. I encourage anyone at any level to take a lesson (or two) from Steve!
Steve is a great dance instructor! Very easy to learn from, and has tailored his instruction to where we are in our learning. We've had so much fun! He has taught us two step, polka and waltz with lots of fun turn sequences.
Great teacher! Steve was fun and friendly, very knowledgeable! Definitely recommend!
Steve is a great teacher! My daughter wanted a line dance for her wedding. Steve took us on short notice, choreographed us something fun. Now she's happy and I'm happy! Thank you Steve
We just had our first dance lesson. Steve was great at explaining all of the moves. We can't wait until next week for our next private lesson. Finally a dance instructor that explain and show your how to dance properly. I've been married for 8 years and have always wanted to dance. I finally understand the concept. Thanks Steve!
So witty and funny! Steve makes the classes incredibly fun and very easy to follow! I recommend his classes to anyone!
Steve and Bethany are excellent instructors. Their style is amazingly easy to understand. I was surprised at how much I learnt in a remarkably short time. They are truly amazing. I strongly recommend them.
My fiancee and I went to Steve for several dance lessons to get ready for our wedding first dance. He is great: enthusiastic, provides the right amount of advice to help you learn, teaches you interesting sets of steps. I highly recommend.
Great as soon as my job or schedule allows I will be back for more.
Outstanding comfortable easy learning
Steve knows his stuff. He's a great teacher and is good at answering your questions. He's always cheerful and makes you feel welcome. He tries his best to keep a critical mass of students and to have dance parties occasionally.
Excellent dancer and dance instructor. He knows what he is doing and communicates well. His classes are fun and informative.
Very good dance instructor..Made learning steps easy.Can't wait til my next lesson.
Steve is an awesome instructor and is excellent at making everyone feel comfortable with learning to dance. Taking lessons is like a "date night" for us after 32 years of marriage! I encourage anyone of any age to give it a try. You'll not be disappointed.
Steve's classes are very casual and fun. His method of teaching allows you to get on the dance floor quick and easy. Within no time at all I was twirling around on the dance floor. He is passionate about dancing so his goals is to get you dancing and for your to enjoy yourself while you are there!
I've never had a better dance experience.
Extremely well put together lesson. Steve is a good instructor and kind person. Small groups for lessons allow one to benefit a lot, especially for the price.
I never danced. Except when 60 people are up there and then it was dark so I faked whatever else everyone was doing. I took one lesson with Steve and then the next day I two stepped and polka'd at Big Tex. A lady complimented me on my steps. She said she could tell I was doing all correctly and that is why she asked me to dance. Steve's lessons are easy to understand for us formerly non dancers. His instructions and willingness to help are above par. We even have socials and meals for those that want additional activities. Realistically, I didn't do all the turns and spins immediately but I at least knew that only more practice would resolve it. All is fun and great exercise and now I wonder why I waited so long? Why are you waiting?
No one is going to be on Dancing With The Stars after 1 lesson. Learning is not easy at times. Steve teaches theory and basic steps first rather then asking you to memorize complicated step patterns. The moves come to you in short time much more naturally this way. He fills his class with humor and stories which puts your fears to ease. Passion and love of dancing drives him above and beyond.
Dancing transforms one from a social misfit to a social butterfly. Even the most basic dancing skills gives one confidence to ask a stranger for the next dance. I made some wonderful friends from Steve's groups and so grateful I found his class.
I am so glad I found Steve! He is so encouraging, patient, and FUN! I found him online, and originally chose him because he taught so close to where I lived and his prices were so reasonable. Who knew I'd be getting the best dance instructor in town?! He's a great dancer, really knows his stuff, and does an excellent job communicating clearly about how to dance. That was my first time to take dance lessons, and I felt a little anxious going into it. But Steve put me at ease from the first moment I met him. I took a private lesson that day and went dancing for the first time that same night and had a BLAST - he's that good! Now I'm addicted to dancing and can dance very comfortably with lots of different people when I go out on the weekend. I've learned two-step, polka, and Gulf Coast swing (SO fun!!). I hope to learn West Coast swing, as well.
Steve, as an instructor, is very professional, yet has a way of putting you at ease so that you can focus on what he is teaching you. I can't think of a single negative comment that I could make, he is that good! I have learned more than I ever thought I would with just a few lessons. I have referred several friends to him and will continue to do so. I don't know why I waited so long to get started because I am having a blast and getting awesome exercise! Thanks Steve!!
I loved his teaching style! I learned alot in the first few lessons! Looking forward to having more!
Steve is a wonderful dance instructor. I realize how
much he taught me in just a short while when I go to
some of these other dance lessons. Have not been
able to go recently due to work but look forward to
resuming those lessons with Steve shortly
I have always felt I was unteachable on the dance floor, with 2 left feet. My heart burned to know to dance but every attempt left me hopeless, until I met Steve. His way of teaching is so simplified, he took me from basic to advanced in no time and within weeks i felt comfortable to dance the night away regardless of my partner's ability to lead. Steve has given me such an unbelievalbe confidence back in myself that i now feel more balanced and in step with rhythm than ever before. Plus I lost TONS of weight which was a added blessing I never counted on. So now I'm doing what i love and looking great doing it. What a win, win for me. :)
Steve is a very good instructor and passionate about dancing. We started lessons with him in March '09. If you have the desire to learn, he will get you where you want to go. My wife and I go out and enjoy dancing two-step, Polka, and West coast swing at least once per week. I never danced before last year, and my only regret was not taking lessons sooner. It has been a lot of fun.
I have been attending classes with Steve for Two-step, polka and West Coast Swing. I have never learned so much, so quickly in any other class I've taken. Steve is meticulous in teaching the basics, which makes learning the more advanced steps easier and faster to learn. He makes the classes fun and makes sure everyone is participating and getting their money's worth. I would recommend him to anyone and have!
