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.

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!

My fiancé and I absolutely love our dance lessons with Leslie. It’s something we look forward to and something that became a very fun outlet for us. She is so easy to work with and is a great choreographer. We have no plans to stop dancing after our wedding. Leslie is a great person and I’m so thankful we chose her to choreograph our first dance together.

As well as having dance coaching with Nadiya, I have observed Nadiya teaching ballroom dance to classes of children as young as 5 years, and of mature dancers, all of whom clearly loved her classes and had fun. Trained in International Standard and Latin in her native Ukraine, and in American Smooth and Rhythm as an instructor in a New York franchise studio, she is an excellent teacher for students of all ages, from social to competitive. She is great at teaching wedding couples and loves to make them feel happy to dance on their wedding day. I learn a lot from her coaching and recommend her as a dance teacher.

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.

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.

I have been taking private ballet lessons with Cleo for almost a year now. My technique has improved tremendously in the time I have worked with her! Cleo is patient and kind, and her attention to detail (the arch of your foot, how your wrist is positioned, the tilt of the head) has helped me grow as a dancer. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Conchita Sader I thank you for helping me learn and understand body coordinations in dancing even just for a short period of time. You educate me by giving me simple easy details and giving me confidence to perform in public for the first time. I had fun in learning and will definitely recommend you to friends.

I have been taking lessons from from Moses Ramos for over three years and I have competed with him in several Pro/Am Ballroom dance competitions. Moses is an excellent dancer and teacher. He is both personable and professional. He tailors his teaching style to the student and I feel like I have greatly improved under his guidance. I would recommend Moses to any dance student, regardless of goals. He really cares about your improvement!

Kelly helped us with basic moves to make us feel more comfortable with our first dance and then worked with our whole wedding party to do a group dance. We love our enthusiastic (even rowdy) wedding party friends, and knew it would take a pro to make it happen. Somehow Kelly managed to get them all to learn the dance. Everyone was surprised and impressed bu both dances, we kept them a secret. It was one of the best things we did to make the reception feel extra special.
