Neasy was amazing! She took a group of six girls with varying levels of skills and, in one hour, created a choreographed dance that they could all have fun with. She was professional, on time, and had a great attitude. We loved Neasy and look forward to working with her again.Dec 11, 2018Verified

Thanks so much! You are a pleasure to teach! 😉
I wanted to selected all five qualities I sincerely feel she was a great instructor. I contacted Neasy to choreograph a bridal party dance for my besties wedding coming up in December. She came up with a dance each one of us could catch onto, have fun with and remember. We definitely enjoyed our session and looking forward to performing it soon.Nov 12, 2018Verified
Outstanding experience. Niecy was enthusiastic about working with my team. Her enthusiasm is infectious and motivational. She is a creative and full of innovative ideas. My vision for the team was unconventional and Niecy immediately understood it and brought it to fruition. She is a consummate professional and always punctual.Oct 7, 2018Verified
