Erin was wonderful to work with! Super responsive and professional. The crowd loved her! Not only were she and her dance partner wonderful dancers, but they were also great at getting the crowd going and teaching them how to dance- they loved it!Dec 5, 2017VerifiedErin Parsley Dance's reply
Hi Sam, we had such a fun and fabulous time dancing at your event. I’ll never forget getting to dance at a castle!! I loved how willing the crowd was to get up and participate. They were awesome! I look forward to bringing more good dance vibes to future events. :) Erin
We hired Erin and her colleague to kick off a speakeasy-themed corporate party with era-inspired dance...and they delivered! They were dressed in perfect costume, delivered a fantastic performance and really got things started off right. Our guests loved it! And Erin was great to work with in the planning process - very detailed, included photos and suggestions, and very responsive. She made it all so easy. I would definitely recommend her!Jul 22, 2016VerifiedErin Parsley Dance's reply

Wedding Dance Lessons
Erin is an incredible dance teacher. She was very warm and patient with me and my fiancé, especially considering we were both very new to dance. She choreographed a dance for us which was the perfect balance between “easy to learn” and “exciting to watch”. And she made the whole process very fun for us! I highly recommend Erin to any couple looking for wedding dance lessons!Oct 11, 2018VerifiedErin Parsley Dance's reply
I loved working with you and Dave! Your energy together is just the best, so sweet!
Wedding Dance Lessons
Erin was really great at working with us on a short time frame to come up with a dance that we were comfortable with to do at our wedding :). We went through several options, and she paid close attention to what we wanted and what we liked. At the end it made us feel comfortable and confident to have a dance we are comfortable with and prepared to do in front of everyone at our wedding. Thank you Erin!!Oct 10, 2018VerifiedErin Parsley Dance's reply
I am very glad I could help you both feel comfortable and confident! Enjoy getting to dance together! All my best wishes. Erin
