Erin gave us dance lessons for our wedding first dance. Even at the last minute, Erin was easy to communicate and schedule with. She managed our time efficiently and clarified anything she felt was unclear during the dance lessons. Erin had a great, friendly, upbeat attitude from beginning to end and made us feel comfortable quickly. Highly recommend!

I had 4 Salsa lessons with Marge so far. This is not my first time dancing Salsa, which makes things progress quickly. She has a great way of explaining steps and rhythm, so that it is easy for me to follow and remember. Also, she is very friendly and goes the extra mile to help and advise me. I look forward to more lessons with her!

We just finished our first dance lesson and we are so excited with the simple yet beautiful moves we were taught. She took time to explain clearly and demonstrate everything. We have a couple of more lessons scheduled and are looking forward to them!

Emily Coles is an encouraging, compassionate, patient teacher! I've taken Latin ballroom and social dance lessons with her, and she has been amazing every step of the way. She adjusts to levels of dance experience and learning styles as needed. Whether you are a dance novice or veteran, working with her on steps, technique, or choreography is efficient and also super fun.

Freddy is fabulous! We hired her for a mom / son dance for his bar mitzvah. This was not a typical slow dance. We asked her to copy the choreography from our favorite video. She showed up at the studio having already broken down the choreography for us. Then she had us go through some warmup dancing and started the choreography. She was incredibly responsive to our needs. I wanted the dance broken down for me a certain way so I could nail the steps. She was supportive of my son, who had never taken a dance lesson. Within the time we booked, we nailed the dance and video'd the choreography. Cannot say enough good things about Freddy. She's upbeat, friendly and makes you feel welcome in a dance studio.

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.

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.

We booked Desiree to help us with our first dance. She was fantastic! She helped us choreograph a fun fast pace song and a slow song. She helped us edit the music as well. Desiree was really fun to work with and was always on time. She was flexible to changes and asked us how we feel... "do you want it easier? harder?". She pointed out areas of improvements and areas of strengths. Her fee includes the studio that we used which was very helpful. She helped us remember the cues of the dance so we don't get lost in the song. She is very enjoyable to work evidenced by her ability to communicate effectively, to remain calm, fun, and sweet all at the same time. She's able to capture our vision and bring it to life. Overall an amazing dance teacher. My husband and I were talking about having more dance lessons just for fun sometimes in the future all because she was so much fun to work with, and that means a lot because my husband is not a dancer at all, but also had a lot of fun.

"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.

Jessica is super encouraging, understanding, and enthusiastic about what she does. I have always wanted to learn how to dance; however, my biggest barrier is my fear to just let loose. Jessica is super patient with me. She teaches me new moves and provides the space to try them out. I'm still in the process of getting over my fear but with each lesson, I feel myself feeling a little more confident than the lesson before. Jessica definitely does a good job of pushing me to get better without making me feel uncomfortable.

I am a serious social ballroom dancer with fifteen years experience. In the beginning I took a lesson here and there but was never satisfied with my teacher, until I found Larry Brooks at LBJ Dance three years ago. He is a gifted teacher, professional beyond belief, honorable about maintaining his schedule, and extremely aware and thoughtful about my individual preferences. I refer friends and potentially interested ballroom dancers to him on a regular basis.
