We hired Daniel for 6 wedding dance lessons. He helped us choose a song and prepare a dance. He was always on time to the studio and professional. He makes sure to record the progress at the end of each lesson which is so helpful when you forget your moves! Very creative, and I would definitely recommend.

My fiance and I signed up for dance lessons with Erin and we couldn't be happier. I started out with zero background in dance and after only a couple lessons my fiance and I have our first dance choreographed. I'm actually excited to dance at my wedding which is saying a lot. Erin is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable right away. I would highly recommend her!

If you're looking for Latin or Ballroom dance instruction I highly recommend Jeremy and Carolyn. I've been training with them for 2 years and have only great things to say. They bring amazing technical knowledge and expertise, and wonderful performance skills. They are also personable and fun! And as a successful, professional competitive couple they offer experience you won't find every day. Do it! :-)

I had 4 Salsa lessons with Marge so far. This is not my first time dancing Salsa, which makes things progress quickly. She has a great way of explaining steps and rhythm, so that it is easy for me to follow and remember. Also, she is very friendly and goes the extra mile to help and advise me. I look forward to more lessons with her!

We took dance lessons from Alpa for our first dance at our wedding reception. She choreographed the whole thing and even asked us for our input and offered to let us change things based on comfort and preference. She did a great job though and me being the control freak that I am, I'm surprised that I didn't have a single change request! Let me stress that neither one of us are dancers and I was very worried about doing the dance in front of so many of our friends and family. But Alpa was so patient with us and made us feel so comfortable. We feel like we've known her for years yet we just met her a couple weeks ago! We learned the dance in two lessons and we will be back for our final lesson next week just to practice in front of her with my 25 lb lehenga and heels. If you need dance lessons of any kind, she is your girl! Thank you, Alpa! We are so thrilled that you will be a part of our big day in such a big way.

Bertus was very quick to reply to our inquiry about dance lessons. We've only met once so far but I was very happy with our first session! He was very down to earth and really listened to the ideas we had for our wedding dance. I felt very comfortable with him right from the start! Highly recommend.

Verified review

Desiree choreographed my first wedding dance. I showed up as a man without any rhythm or even the slightest interest in dancing. I thought the entire process would be one of the worst experiences of my life. Desiree not only had me enjoying dance on day 1, but I've been taking dance lessons for the last 7 months as a result of her inspiration. She managed to teach me two choreographed dances (Tango and Rhumba) in only a handful of lessons. Desiree is an excellent teacher, clearly explains and demonstrates moves, stays positive at all times, and keeps you motivated as a student. Cannot recommend her highly enough. Our guests were shocked and blown away by the choreography, and that was with someone with no prior dance experience. You will not be disappointed!

"First Dance" lessons with choreography assistance less than 2 weeks out from our wedding. We started out with 2 and extended it to 3 lessons. Joseph was really helpful instructing the two of us that have no background in dancing. In 1 hour we had the basis for a first dance at our wedding. In 2 hours he got us better at that and added flourishes. In 3 hours he worked on the entire production. He knows what he's doing and has fun doing it.

Joann is a wonderful knowledgeable piano instructor. I stared my son in weekly piano lessons with Joann at age 6, last year. I was very impressed with her ability to teach the basics in a way he understood and connected to. He likes and respects her and is eager to learn. Joann is very relaxed, patient, and positive with him. I am very pleased! I would definitely recommend her to other potential students, young or old.

Andreina was great! As someone who has never taken a private dance lesson and has always been a bit shy when it comes to partner dance, I quickly overcame that with Andreina. She is patient and skilled, and constantly wearing a radiant smile on her face. I learned the history of Salsa and its cultural importance along side the basic steps and movements. I will definitely be returning for more lessons. 💃

Taylor was an AMAZING dance instructor! We used her for our 1st dance for our wedding and could not have had a better experience. Taylor is an unbelievably skilled and patient instructor. We were complete beginners, yet with Taylor's expertise, ended up with a fantastic dance routine. Taylor's vision is fresh, fun, and unique and you will be left with anything but a typical wedding dance routine. We cannot recommend her enough!
