We had Dan for our wedding first dance lessons. From the get-go, Dan had a very detailed, yet easy to follow instructions. We don't have any dancing background, yet he put so much trust in us to perform some amazing moves and created a unique routine. Everyone at our wedding were thoroughly impressed with our dance. Thank you Dan!
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!
Carolyn is a fantastic dance instructor. She is friendly, patient and understanding. She makes a genuine effort to understand you and then customizes the dance syllabus as per one's comfort. So far, I have taken over 15 lessons and have never been disappointed!
I selected Emily for private salsa lessons (after having not ballroom danced since high school). We started with a smattering of dance styles to warm up. As part of being a great teacher, Emily was a really good listener. So together, we discovered that although I'd sought lessons thinking I wanted to learn salsa, it turns out I most enjoyed West Coast Swing. I'm going to my first West Coast Swing social event tonight. Thanks, Emily, for giving me the foundation to make this happen!
Excellent instructor who really went the extra mile to teach salsa to novice dancers at our Cinco de Mayo party.
Marge is amazing! She knows what she's doing and what you need to focus on once she sees you dancing. She has lots of experience under her belt. She knows more than 15 different dances and loves to dance and have a great time. From just 2 salsa lessons I'm loving it!
My church wanted to do a program of three Latin Dance lessons over the course of a month. We looked for somebody to do this and we found the most marvelous teacher --- Ruth Caspary of Latin Connection Dance. First of all, she was really professional and easy to plan with. And she had good suggestions for the planning. We were able to fit in bachata, salsa, and American tango. Super! Second, she came on site (we have a great space with a wooden floor) with her equipment and music and was ready to teach. Third, she is a super teacher. She accounted for each person's abilities and was energetic and generous with her time. We all learned a lot and had great fun, too. Last, but not least, she is social and friendly, a good conversationalist as well as a great teacher. There's no question who we'd go to in the future.
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.
Daniel is so great. We took beginner's salsa lessons. Daniel is a consummate professional - reliable, communicative, knowledgeable, patient, good-natured, flexible, funny, and versatile. He was equally good at explaining things to me in dance terms and to my (beginner) boyfriend using analogies that felt more accessible to him. We made a surprising amount of progress in a short time, and Daniel was super understanding when we barely practiced between lessons, helping us catch back up and still make progress every lesson. Daniel is also just a really chivalrous person and really brings the politesse of being a good dance partner into the lesson. Highly recommend getting a package of lessons with Daniel. It's a good value and those extra few lessons can take you from just-the-basics to having a reasonable set of moves that you can build on and improvise from.
Caterina is an outstanding personal trainer. She adapts each training session to my capabilities and goals. She is very encouraging and motivating, which pushes me to surpass my expectations. She incorporates her dance experience to make the workouts fun and challenging. She has adapted exercises to improve my balance and stability. She is a delightful trainer to work with. I look forward to each training session.
"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.
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.
Walter is a wonderful dance instructor. When I started learning dance, I was a complete novice. Walter structured my lessons in a sequential fashion that gradually built my skills to what some label "silver" level enjoyment. I especially like the way Walter took MY goals into consideration. I did not wish to compete, but to become a better than average dancer, focused mostly on smooth dance and some light rhythm, so that I might enjoy social dance opportunities. My weekly dance lessons have become the highlight of my week! 💃
Professional and great dance instructors. They provide excellent dance lessons and easy to learn.
Diana has been absolutely fantastic helping teach my wife and I salsa. I leave every class feeling more confident, and she makes the entire lesson very fun!
Hebert Aguilar Director of Timba Heat Dance Company is an amazing dance instructor and choreographer! His energy, enthusiasm, creativity, and passion for dancing is very evident and contagious in his form of teaching. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned dancer, Hebert will challenge you and take your dancing skills to the next level while keeping the training extremely fun and highly addictive. Prior to taking private lessons and group classes from Hebert, I had no previous dance background but I can truly say that in a short amount of time he has helped me to become a more confident and well rounded dancer and performer. I am very thankful and grateful to have the pleasure of training under an extremely talented, patient and humble instructor. Whether your goal is to learn as a beginner, enhance your dancing skills, or perform in front of an audience, I would highly recommend Hebert Aguilar. Trust me you will not be disappointed. Check out his videos and performances on Facebook (Timba Heat) and Instagram (@Timbaheat).
Olivia gave me the best introduction to Pilates ever! Having never tried it before, I was very nervous about taking a group class so when I saw a decently priced opportunity for an individual or duet class, I decided to try it out. Olivia was fantastic. She explained thoroughly what we were doing and why. I'm the type of person who prefers to know why. And I'm really glad she took the time to speak with me. Olivia geared our lessons to focus on what each I needed and wanted from this experience. She was constantly showing me what I was doing right or wrong and explaining why it should be done a certain way. One of the main reasons I wanted private lessons and not a class was because I was afraid of hurting myself by doing things incorrectly. I've been known to jump into things before without thinking them through. It has been amazing to have someone who takes the time to make sure you are exercising correctly and taking care of your body. I'm incredibly grateful to have taken classes with Olivia. I pay attention to little details on my body that I never noticed before, and I can see a difference in the way I carry myself and in how my body feels. I highly recommend working with Olivia if you have the opportunity. Thank you, Olivia!
I've been taking private lessons in ballet and jazz from Zaire for about four months now, and I can confidently say that this was the best decision that I made this year! My only previous dance experience was five years ago, a beginner's class that my high school offered for physical education. Early this year, I decided that I wanted to try out for the dance team at my college, hoping I could train hard enough to prepare for auditions in September. Zaire has been the perfect dance teacher to help me work toward this goal. Every lesson, she pushes me more to perfect my technique, build up my stamina, and to really perform each movement. She works me VERY hard, but I've gotten in so much better shape and can see and feel improvement in every aspect of my dancing. Zaire instructs with the perfect balance of being tough with high expectations while keeping things fun and creating an environment in which working hard doesn't feel like work at all. She is a beautiful person who truly cares about her students! I am so blessed to have her as a dance teacher, and I recommend her to absolutely anyone who wants to experience the joy in dancing!
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!
