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.

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!!

Are you kidding me? In the span of an hour after meeting Bryan, our youngest Keianu was gently encouraged to show a move that Bryan had just taught him and all eyes were fixated on him....that was a transformative movement right there. Keianu is taking private lessons with Bryan and he loves Bryan and the type of educator, instructor and big friend he is. As a dance administrator myself, I can verify of Bryan's ability to connect, educate and inspire his students. Our family is forever grateful to Bryan for introducing our son to a whole new "world of dance". Mabuhay Bryan Boogiemind East!

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.

Michelle and I are very grateful that we had Thomas as our dance instructor for our wedding's first dance. We have never taken formal dance lessons before but Thomas was patient and able to give us a solid foundation and build on our skills. He took our suggestions and song to choreograph a great squence that made our first dance memoriable and we received many complements. We are glad that he helped us make our special day a success!

Mark was an amazing teacher with great energy! I hired Mark for a Salsa lesson for my birthday party. Mark was amazing, being able to teach the people in my small group who some never danced Salsa, some have danced casually in their own Latin country, and some who have taken basic lessons before. He was able to help the beginners while still being able to challenge the ones who were more familiar. Mark's energy, patience, and professionalism is what made my party. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

Charla was my Salsa teacher when I was new to the scene. I really mean it when I say that she cares so much about her students and she's truly dedicated to helping them learn. She knows her stuff when it comes to Salsa and even has lots of wise tips to offer to new comers. Ladies, just ask her for a demonstration on what to do of you fall down. Lol don't tell her I told you! I was really sad to see her leave our studio as she's not an excellent teacher, but a wonderful friend. I know that whatever studio she teaches at now will be great, because she's awesome!

What a great dance teacher! I am so happy that I found Kathy Levyn. She is amazing. I have had several private lessons and am learning so much. She has so many ways to teach that make it easy and fun. She has a wonderful personality. The best part is I'm gaining more confidence. If you need a dance teacher, I'd highly recommend her. She got me to dance and I'm going to my first ballroom dance to test it out! I also went to a practice dance and I survived! I love it. I plan on being with Kathy for a long time. I love that she has flexible hours, her prices are very reasonable, she is fun to dance with, and is a very nice person. You will learn so much, have fun, and it is great exercise.

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.

Cleo is amazing! I'm a beginning adult dancer and I take private ballet lessons with her. She takes the time to explain everything in detail and is patient and helpful when I have questions or am having trouble with a new combination. Her instruction is high quality, with an eye for safe movement. She has excellent training and is highly capable of imparting that knowledge. She is super friendly and makes the sessions very comfortable and non-intimidating. I would happily recommend her to anyone.

Artemi is an excellent dance teacher/coach. He takes the time to listen to his student's needs and goals. From that he bases his lesson plans. His private and group lessons are taught in segments and build on those segments so a beginner or advanced student can learn and grow. As a professional dancer, he has the knowledge and talent to work with his students on proper technique, physical strength, choreography, musicality and much more. He does this in a caring, supportive and fun way. But he also can be strict especially if preparing a student for a showcase or competition. Artemi is trained in American and International Latin and Ballroom dances. He also performs and competes proefssional with his partner pro dancer Erica Arnold. This helps him keep on top of his profession to then share with his students. I have grown as a person and dancer because of Artemi. He has helped me physically and mentally in my life. I look forward to my lessons whether it is to focus on technique, strengthen my core and/or just dance. As such, I would highly recommend Artemi Okunev.

I have had privates with Cherise for a few years now, she teaches me a combo of flow and yin which is great because I get to sweat a little and also work on my flexibility. Our classes have built in difficulty as I've gotten better and I love the music she plays.

    I have had the honor of being a professional dancer for over 10 years in the industry, working and traveling for artists, commercials, film and television and have trained with the best around the world. I have also shaped artists who've needed movement coaching to guide their performances. As a dance developer, my skills can either help someone train or simply provide a way for someone to feel more confident about themselves. Dance can be fun as well as a great workout, and that is what I love to create with clients. I teach children, adults, and artists and do either private or group session. Depending on the clients' needs, I teach anything from hip-hop, jazz, modern, jazz funk, and burlesque/heels to artist development and fitness.
