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.

No one has had any dance lessons yet (!), but she communicates a welcomed professionalism. She responds quickly and has a genuine enthusiasm for what she does.

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!

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!!

In a word: AMAZING! Ten days before the wedding we decided we needed lessons for our first dance. I basically hate dancing and couldn’t do it to save my life. Add to that a fiancée who always wants to lead and the recipe for disaster was complete. We scheduled a lesson with Debra and she magically transformed us into a semi-coordinated couple. We learned enough basic steps, turns and even a twirl to impress the audience. After just one hour we left confident that if we followed her instructions to practice a little each day we would wow them at the reception. So what went wrong? Well, we only had time to practice together once, but I was able to put aside 15 minutes every day to practice by myself. And guess what? In that short amount of time we were able to hold our own during the first dance. Yes, my wife wanted to lead as always, but Debra had taught us enough that I was able to wrestle control back most of the time. Admittedly, we did resort to the swaying back and forth a few times, but we had learned enough to realize it and quickly revert back to proper dancing form. We haven’t seen the video yet, but we could both FEEL the difference. Debra has such an easy-going style and sense of humor that you are immediately at ease. But she also knows when to give that quick, sharp correction that will keep you in rhythm or form. She goes at an easy pace, but doesn’t waste your time. We threw every obstacle we could at Debra and she more than delivered! What she was able to achieve in just one short hour was nothing short of astounding. Even more incredible, I think I want to go back for more lessons…this dancing thing might actually be enjoyable!

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.

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

Mike was crucial in helping my wife and me learn how to dance for our wedding in May 2017. He was extremely patient, communicative and worked with our schedule to make sure we got in all our sessions before the big day. Our wedding dance went great and I'd absolutely recommend Mike for all your dancing needs.

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.

Joscelyn was hired by my fiancé to teach us our first dance. We wanted something very simple and elegant. We had a few songs already picked out and she helped us pick the perfect one. We opted to do 4 lessons within two months - wish we would have done more. It was such a relaxing time during such a stressful event - I could have used that. Thank you for making us beautiful! By the way I’m loving this name! Tres you!
