I just started taking private swing dance lessons with Erin and she is wonderful to work with. She has a great practice space near Forest Hill station, that has a large parking lot as well. I am by no means a naturally gifted dancer, but she is patient and very good at breaking down the steps and explaining them in ways that I can understand. I am so excited to continue working with here!
Desiree was such a pleasure to work with! We found Desiree on Yelp after finding out the person we originally wanted to commit to was no longer available and it honestly could not have worked out for the better! Desiree choreographed our waltz + hip-hop dance (~3.5 mins) over the course of 6 45-minute lessons (1 of those lessons was an evaluation for her to test our ability to handle certain difficulty levels and direction). DESIREE THE INSTRUCTOR: She was extremely patient and flexible with our schedules and not once pushed for any extra lessons we didn't need. Her technique made it really easy for us to grasp certain movements that we found difficult to learn. It made us feel good that she took the time to repeat anything we weren't sure of. After we had gotten the steps down, she made sure we took time to focus on hand movements/gestures and facial expressions (another really important part of any dance performance). DESIREE + YOU: It's important to note that learning a dance is a two-way street: you need to put in the time to practice and memorize your choreography, too. Your money and Desiree's time will go to waste if you don't commit to practicing. Desiree got us to feel comfortable in breaking out of our boxes to do something challenging and fun for our wedding -- it was worth every penny invested in these lessons. My husband and I got to bond over trying something new and we enjoyed every moment of it. I hope we never forget the choreography! We will be sending anyone interested in dance lessons her way. DESIREE'S MASTERPIECE: You can find our choreographed dance here: Angle 1 (youtu.be/N1ODzIxOl88) Angle 2 (youtu.be/oXn2FFTHvQ4)
I had so much fun working with Isaac on my first lesson! The vibe was super friendly and we went over a half-dozen basic steps, giving me plenty of material to practice on. This is exactly what I was seeking from private hip-hop dance lessons.
Jasmine transformed dancing for me. Before taking a few lessons with her, dancing was a huge source of anxiety for me -- I avoided it at all costs. Jasmine helped me find the beat, offered me reassurance about the learning process, and eventually gave me a repertoire of moves to draw on. I danced at my wedding thanks to Jasmine. Also, she is super reliable, punctual, kind, and professional. I recommend her very, very highly. I am so thankful!
My [then] fiancée and I took lessons from Eliott for our first dance. Eliott was patient, fun, and an excellent teacher. We recommended him to our friends who also took lessons for their first dance!
Kurt Senser is an amazing instructor! He has transformed my dancing from all over the place and wobbly to precise and smooth. I've been taking private lessons with him for about 2 years now. I started out with Country 2 Step, then went to West Coast Swing and am now learning Night Club 2 Step. One of the things that has helped me so much in working with Kurt is that he can be technical in his teaching. This is what I needed. I need to know where my foot is now and where it needs to be. For those ladies who think they need a partner to take private dance lessons, don't do it! Go by yourself and/or let your partner take a separate lesson with Kurt. You will see amazing results! I carry Kurt's cards with me in my boot bag and tell everyone who compliments me on my improved dancing, who made it happen. Kurt has a great personality and no matter what your skill level, you will feel comfortable and look forward to your next dance lesson. I know I do!

I can teach various levels of hip-hop to any age group using many hit songs from the radio, popular movie soundtracks, and many more attractive and appropriate music I may find. I can also offer beginner tap, jazz, or ballet lessons to the little ones who are interested in growing up to be versatile dancers.
