Loved working with Donna!! She was so patient with me and I learned so much from her! Would absolutely recommend taking classes with her, looking forward to working with her again!Oct 22, 2018Verified
I have never had dance lessons before and found working with Donna both beneficial and pleasurable. She taught 3 couples and focused on what I wanted to learn for an upcoming wedding event. She was knowledgeable as well as patient. I would highly recommend her as a dance instructor.Sep 3, 2018Verified

We were very impressed with Donna and would recommend her to anyone looking for dance lessons. We found her teaching style to be perfect for us - she was fun, easy-going and patient, that is, she was willing to walk us through things as many times, and as many ways, as necessary for us to grasp the concepts. We are a 50ish married couple, but, we had so much fun we felt like kids during our lesson.May 8, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We meet and determine what the customer's needs are. Then I evaluate the skill levels and come up with a plan to advance the individuals skill level.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a masters degree in physical education so I am trained in evaluating physical skills and in ways to improve thoes skill levels. I continue to take private and group lessons myself to improve my own skill level. I compete in country western dancing to test myself and push to another level.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started competitive dancing in country western dance in 2008. I was introduced to dancing classrooms in 2011 and started teaching dance to 5th graders. I then got the opportunity to teach west coast swing in 2014. I have been really blessed to be able to share my love for dancing with others. As a PE teacher I enjoyed watching my students acquire skills every year and now that I am retired I can continue helping dancers do the same.
