I hired Exceptionally Yours Weddings & Events for dance lessons and as a day-of coordinator for my out-of-town wedding. Crystal handled our dance lessons and preliminary day-off planning, and Storm acted as our day-of coordinator. My now husband and I were very happy with the service we received from both. Crystal is especially knowledgeable and was instrumental in ensuring things were taken care of beforehand, and Storm was wonderful at dealing with the hectic day-of events. I even got compliments from both guests and other vendors on Storm's professionalism and responsiveness! I would highly recommend them, as they great at what they do and are very affordable for the area.

Michelle has been great, very flexible with our schedules and changing choice of song after the first lesson. She has made it very easy for us as beginners to ease into learning our dance. She makes it fun, simple and gives us the elegant beautiful dance we were looking for on our wedding day.

Bryan is brilliant! My son has been taking break dancing lessons with Bryan for less then a year & he loves it! He looks forward to going because Bryan makes it fun for him which is awesome because my son is only 4 :) He's also very patient in teaching him new dance moves & has great technique. I know my son is in good hands when he's with Bryan & I couldn't have asked for a better dance teacher!

My fiancé and I had our first lesson with Debra a couple of days ago. Our experience has been far from mediocre. She is patient and kind. A wonderful dance instructor who breaks everything down into steps. Nothing is coreographed. Her goal is to make us feel comfortable on the dance floor. After our first lesson on our way to the car my Fiance said "man, can't wait to go again and get really good". We now having the rest of the month scheduled out for dance lessons. Looking forward to surprising our wedding guest and showing them that we can slow dance without swaying in one place

We hired Mindy to help my husband and me with our first dance for our wedding. She was very dedicated in preparing our dance routine and ensuring that we were comfortable with the dance moves. We had two dance lessons. The first was very helpful in introducing the dance steps and getting used to the foot work. We recorded the dance routine with Mindy which was extremely helpful in observing how natural and elegant the dance is supposed to look like. Our second dance lesson was focused on refining the dance moves and make alterations that was best suited for our level. She had a good eye for the 2nd dance lesson to make adjustments that made sense for us. Overall, we were very pleased with hiring Mindy as a dance teacher and making our first dance a success! She also comes to your home which is a plus and makes it very convenient. She is willing to work with your schedule and is very committed in ensuring you are completely happy with her service. We highly recommend Mindy as a dance teacher!!

My confidence was greatly improved by my lessons with Roxx Anna. As a lead, my goal is to make my dances fun and entertaining for my follows. Roxx Anna's ability to break down each step and movement helped me build that much needed confidence. Social dance outings with Roxx Anna were some of the highlights where my dancing greatly improved. I was able to confidently ask other girls to dance and practice what I learned. Overall, my learning experiences with Roxx Anna have been amazing! I highly recommend Roxx Anna--especially if you are looking to improve your swag ;)

Shawn and Katie are not dance instructors, they are miracle workers. They were patient, enthusiastic, flexible, and had tons of adaptability to my learning needs. I look forward to scheduling future dance lessons with them.

Shyrelle has been working with my daughter for about a month now. My daughter needed hip hop & jazz lessons so that she could perform in her talent show at summer camp as well as try out for the dance team next year. I've seen her vastly improve in such a short time. Shyrelle implements discipline & fun & is so great with teens. Highly recommended!

Mark taught my husband and I our first dance for our multicultural wedding. My husband and I had no prior dance training, and are both definitely the "wallflower" type. Thinking of the first dance caused both of us a lot of anxiety. Until Mark came in and changed our whole world and whole perception of how fun dance can be. Mark was always patient, an outstanding teacher, and truly made our first dance special. Our wedding was a multi-day event with numerous ceremonies and traditions from families of two distinct cultures. But dance lessons with Mark were a welcome respite from the hectic planning of the wedding. Mark taught us more than just dancing, he taught my husband and I to establish "connection", teamwork, and trust through dance! Now, my husband and I love to dance and it has become part of our lives, all thanks to Mark. I highly recommend Mark. He is an excellent teacher and you will love every minute of your dance lessons!

We had such a great time learning to dance with Amy! She is so passionate , creative and patient. She gave us the gift of being able to dance together . She choreographed our first dance, taught us how to salsa and cha cha , and provided important rhythmic structure and movement for our father-daughter/ mother -son dance . She did such a great job of breaking down each movement and providing quick adjustments. We always felt like we grew so much from each lesson. I would highly recommend her to anyone with any dance level. She made our first dance so special!!! We can't thank her enough for all of help and coaching . Thank you! Alex & Shayna

Working With Sam Allen was the most amazing experience. Sam gave me private Hip Hop dance lessons and was phenomenal. He was encouraging, patient, and pushed me to my highest potential. Sam was accommodating, professional, and made me feel like a super star. He teaches at your pace and to your ability. I learned so much and had so much fun at the same time. I highly recommend Sam to anyone of all ages and levels of experience. There is no better teacher out there.

Jennifer and her staff were amazing. They really made my party so exciting and fun. Jennifer kept the energy level up the whole night and was so much fun to work with. I highly recommend her for any party you have where you need a professional dancer. Mine was for a luau, Tahitian dancing and she was awesome, even did a fire dance. Her crew socialized with my guests and everything couldn't have gone any better. Thanks Jennifer for a great time and wonderful entertainment!

Moses Ramos is a fantastic dance instructor with so much passion for dance. His way of teaching dance lessons makes it fun yet very informative. Moses is very patient while he teaches and offers great advice to improve our dance moves. During competitions, Moses is very passionate, sharp, articulate, and expressive. I give Moses an Outstanding 5-star rating!

About

Most dance instructors have no organization to their courses and lessons plans for their individual students. I believe that this "random" lesson plan type of teaching is very unproductive and not beneficial for the students. If the students are not using what they learned from the previous lesson, then they are not growing as dancers.
