I wanted to wait until we got to experience a few months with Dan before writing a review. After the first couple months learning basic dance steps, Dan made it easy and fast, putting an awesome choreography together. My fiancé and I are still learning and polishing up our dance. All I can say is that I am super impressed. We are first time dancers with no experience. Dan has lots of patience and a great easy teaching method. We are learning quick for not having any experience. Once we get our wedding dance all polished up, we will be proud to share it with everyone! We're going to continue to learn dancing with Dan even after our wedding. He's a very talented and amazing dance instructor!

Erin was wonderful to work with! Super responsive and professional. The crowd loved her! Not only were she and her dance partner wonderful dancers, but they were also great at getting the crowd going and teaching them how to dance- they loved it!

Private lessons with Jeremy are always fun (he was our teacher for over two years). He has a one-of-a-kind talent for explaining dance moves and creating metaphors that help you "get" both, the technical and the performing aspects of the dance. His choreography, for leader and follower, is always creative and really captures the mood of each dance. Overall, two thumbs up and highly recommend for dancers of any level. We also took a few group classes that Carolyn taught. She's a friendly, easy-going instructor who makes everyone welcome, regardless of skill level. Take her class (or do a private lesson with her) as a fun and light date night activity. :)

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.

Could not be happier! His free lesson was not a promotion to sell more lessons. His free lesson was an expression of his confidence that at no risk to me he could help. I'm not a dancer, but Daniel quickly found my strengths and built on those to find a way of turning my dread of two left feet into a way of expressing my joy through dance . He loves what he does and he is good at it. In two fun sessions I found my center, found the joy, and was able to express that at my wedding reception with confidence.

THRILLED! Jasmine worked with us for our wedding choreography and helped us create one of the most beautiful dances of our lives. We could not have been happier, as she was patient, kind, productive and fun. I highly recommend learning from Jasmine -- you will have a dancer/instructor who is committed and creative by your side to craft a custom dance that you will feel so good about.... I hope that we take a few more lessons from her again once we are more settled. Thanks Jasmine!

I highly recommend Eliott Gray as a dance instructor. He has a knack for making the dance steps understandable and doable, as well as fun. Eliott's style is very encouraging and builds confidence in the student. I've taken a number of ballroom and swing classes over the years at both large and small dance studios and community centers. Those experiences left me feeling like I had three left feet. After studying swing with Eliott I now have confidence that I can hold my own on the dance floor.

Yaelisa is an extraordinary and gifted teacher who immerses her students in all aspects of flamenco. Her love of the art form and her love of teaching are on full display in all classes at all levels. She is patient with new students and challenging with more advanced students. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

If one is interested in learning ballroom dancing, it is very important to seek a knowledgeable teacher who possesses great integrity and who will not exploit students for financial gain (by pushing competitions or by selling a large number of lessons.) Nik is such a teacher. He is not only an expert in both Latin and Ballroom dancing, but also he is very patient, kind and encouraging. I recommend Nik highly and without reservation.

I love having lessons with Sarah. She really explains things so clearly so I can understand. I’m a competitive dancer, and she’s helped me with posture and styling and many other things needed to perform. I was able to get much more info out of her than I would having a male on my subjects. She’s passionate and patient! I highly recommend her!

Hebert is amazing to work with! I really enjoyed my private lesson with him. He's really good at breaking things down, explaining things, pointing out mistakes and gently correcting them, and practicing practicing practicing. His personality is also really great, and I'm looking forward to continue to work with him!

Shortly after I started dancing I met Jeremy who introduced me to competitive dance and I really got the bug. Jeremy makes training fun! His skill with story-telling through dance, character interpretation, and emotional expressiveness are his special gifts. It's been a fantastic experience to go from knowing almost nothing about ballroom dance to having a fun and challenging practice, quite a few competitions and even a world-title under my belt. All thanks to the commitment and skill Jeremy brings to his teaching! I have seen Jeremy work with beginners, wedding couples and a variety of levels of competitive dancer...he puts everyone at ease with his good-natured personality and is wonderful at helping dancers of any skill level improve and have fun in the process. As a high-level competitive professional dancer himself he has a wealth of experience and a great ability to inspire with his grace, strength and expressiveness.

Dalila came and performed for 15 minutes at a High School assembly. She arrived early to set up and check out the space and stayed to watch the whole show. The students loved her. She was very professional and fun. She worked the whole room and gave students the opportunity to get up and dance with her. She was very nice and a really talented dancer.

Tabitha was great! We had an issue with the music (my fault) and she was able to roll with the changes and dance to a belly dancing station from Pandora! Nobody knew that she didn't know the music. She was able to read the crowd and get people involved. She did a great job! Thank you!!
