Having taken lessons a few times over the years at a handful of studios in town (without much satisfaction), we were looking for a dance instructor who would better fit our current needs. We wanted private lesson that would teach us dance on our terms - which are: 1. The ability to choose dances that interest us - each class. 2. An instructor that makes us feel comfortable so that we can learn AND have a fun time. 3. Flexibility to work around our unpredictable work and travel schedules. Shelly continues to check all the boxes for us. She's amazing! We are learning new steps that we're able to incorporate into a handful of dance styles and situations. Our lessons are everything we had hoped and more. We'd highly recommend Shelly!

Details: 46-65 • Two people • Hip hop • Intermediate • Developing a hobby • 60 minutes • As recommended by professional • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Shelly is AMAZING!!! I have maybe 5% of dance experience and I have done 4-5 classes with her so far and they have been so helpful and fun! Shelly does a great job with making you feel comfortable at your own pace but is also good with building confidence for the student. I appreciate that I get to pick the music I wanna dance to as well bc that makes it even more fun. I’m still a newbie but give it a couple more months, Shelly will have me dancing like a pro who has been doing it for years!

Details: 18-25 • One person (one-on-one with instructor) • Hip hop • No experience • Developing a hobby • 60 minutes • As recommended by professional • At the pro’s location

Shelly has been a joy to work with. I came to her as someone who had zero experience or rhythm on the dance floor. I’m now 6 lessons in to learning swing and country. Shelly brings a great energy to the lessons and is passionate about teaching and making sure she addresses any questions I have. I was terrified the first couple of lessons but now it’s something that I legitimately look forward to! Would definitely recommend Shelly to anyone looking to improve their dance skills

Details: 26-35 • One person (one-on-one with instructor) • Hip hop • No experience • Developing a hobby • 60 minutes • Once a week • At the pro’s location

My girlfriend and I took two lessons with Shelly. We focused on swing dancing/country. Shelly was so much fun to work with! She brought a ton of energy and understanding to both lessons. Very quick to respond to messages. HIGHLY recommend Shelly to anyone regardless of your skill level.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Lessons include so much as it’s catered to you. Whether it is choreography or details in technique or of course musical aspects and learning about the beat and what to dance to the beat. A lot of thought goes into it and I always pour my heart and soul into every student I teach. Quality always.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My whole family was dancing and from a young age I was raised in a dance studio. I love music and love movement. It felt natural to me. Both my parents and grandparents have their own dance studios which I learned a lot from! I have never stopped loving everything I do in my dancing and development as a teacher.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    One thing I love is the variety in my customers. I have had customers as young as 4 years old learning their first steps and coordination to clients at the age of 60 sharpening and developing musical and dance skills to stay in shape and do what makes them happy!
