My daughter has had Crystal for 3+ years as a dance instructer. I have to say that Crystal had been her best dance teacher to date. She is very good with the kids but also holds them accountable as any instructer should. My daughter has learned a lot from Crystal and looks forward to her class every week. Expect your child to work hard but to have fun while doing it. A++++
Bianca and Jesse were great, they were very patient and were great at pointing out where I needed to polish up the patterns they taught me, both very talented dancers and also great teachers. I highly recommend them!
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.
In a word, AWESOME! Roxanna has taught me so much! From body movement to placement of my feet to learning how to feel the music. She's an amazing person and very patient. She can be silly with you or technical. She is a strong lead, easy to understand, breaks everything down and is very encouraging. In a nutshell, she's a little bit of everything with a splash of spice. ;) I love Roxx and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to dance, but at the same time have fun. And if you are a woman looking to feel more confident in your movements, she's your girl! Roxx will have you moving like a sexy vixen in no time. :)
Ariana is a fantastic instructor! She developed a great dance routine for us in a short period of time. She was very friendly, and had the best ideas collaborating with our dancers for an upcoming birthday performance. Her professionalism and enthusiasm were highlighted during our visit and we are grateful for her help!I would definitely book her again for future events.
The girls from Nocturna were so adorable. I decided to hire some belly dancers for my husband's 50th birthday party this year, and it was definitely his best birthday yet! They arrived on time (early actually!), were very professional, and everyone loved them. I thought that they would just come out and dance with the guests a bit, but they went above and beyond what I was expecting! They did a whole show, with costuming changes and everything. And their costumes were gorgeous! I had only seen belly dancers a few other times, so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. But these girls were fantastic. They just might have to make an appearance at my hubby's 51st birthday!
The dancing lesson I received was very fun! From scheduling to the lesson itself, everything was professional and easy for me to set up. I appreciated the relaxed setting; it made a newbie like me feel at ease. My boyfriend and I are both beginner dancers, but we were able to pick everything up thanks to Elisa's instruction. She's an excellent teacher and I would definitely recommend Ballroom Pulse to anyone looking for a high quality (yet affordable) lesson.
They responded quickly. Arrived to the venue on time and coordinated with the dj. Everything was smooth and the performance was great. I had two dancers total they were energetic and looked like they themselves were having a great time. Thank you Rio Brasil!
Cleo is the most amazing teacher who takes the time to impart her wealth of talent and knowledge in the art of dance. I returned to dance a year ago after not having danced for 25 years and having been in two car accidents. I was advised by my Dr to strengthen my body as much as I could to help with healing and support of my now damaged back. Looking back the strongest I ever was in my life was when I danced and I feel very fortunate to of met Cleo. Cleo not only has helped me to develope, gain strength and movement but she has given me back a passion that I felt had been lost long ago in my youth. She is always aware of my injury and works with me to protect that area whilst teaching me the nuances of dance and the itricate details for correct ing posture, steps, technique. Every class taken with Cleo is fulfilling and fun, and she always pushes you to be the best you can be no matter what level you are at. If you are looking for a fanastic teacher of ballet and modern dance then look no further as I cannot recommend Cleo more highly. Shes quite simply the best!
Great attitude. Custom instruction for us as dancers. Great sense of humor. Detailed knowledge. Wonderful!
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 hired belly dancers for a wedding. They were amazing! They showed up on time and were very polite and professional. The girls are very talented and everyone was complimenting all night on what a great show it was!
I've booked Ally for a couple 1-on-1 classes and will continue to do so! She has such a fun energy, is soooo patient and encouraging. I'm really shy and a bad dancer, but the way Ally teaches really is empowering. She can break down things in a way that is understandable, to even those who are both musically and physically coordinately challenged. Also, I really like what she brings to the table. She has a lot of different playlists/music styles to introduce you too, and gives you a very broad approach on to dancing so that you can comfortably experiment with a lot of things. She has a lot of integrity as an artist, so she won't recycle other people's dances. Instead, she'll work with you to not only learn the basics, but do something fresh, fun, and unique. You'll never walk from her lessons feeling like you did someone else's work. Rather you'll get the feeling of accomplishment of doing something new, and it almost feels like yours. She really helps you connect you with that budding artist inside of you! Really, she has a fun attitude, and you can learn a lot of life things from her through dance, and she's someone who is a wonderful listener. She can provide you some guidance on and off the dance floor. I really recommend Ally for a well-rounded experience. I know you'll love her as much as I do!
Tamahra dances as she feels it.Movements are fluid and in complete harmony with the music. Very beautiful.
It is always great learning from Emma because she is so inspirational and a beautiful dancer
It was a great experience to meet Briant Leytman and his lovely wife also a dancer. They made me feel welcome and comfortable in the very first meeting. Briant is a great teacher. I signed up on the spot and am looking forward to my lessons from Briant!!
This was my first Hula class and my plan was to only learn 1 mele (song) ended up learning 3 and being part of a dance recital. Angelie was an AWESOME teacher and I was so great towards my hula sisters and I.
I love Loretta! She's a professional dancer, Choreographer, event and media planner. If you want someone that can make your event shine, and put you at ease... It's Loretta! She has soul, power, and the moves.

We will be exploring intricate mudras and choreography while activating the creative soul seat of each individual's personal transformative power. Tune-in with your inner goddess and the art of storytelling through the eyes, hips and heart.

I am a freelance journalist/model/conceptual video director/dancer. At a very young age, a big nosed, brown-eyed, cinnamon and tanned little girl knew she could fly in her dreams, but as well as in real life. Eventually the little girl began to discover she had the gift of healing the broken and exposing the raw truth in ways her intellect wasn't able to grasp. While she began to blossom in her age, her family and friends took notice that their was something luminous about her and beautifully distinctive. Perhaps one day it may just cure the corrupted world which we all live in. Without pride or vanity she possessed the incredible gift to love unconditionally and to sustain an authoritative leadership role without consuming the temptations of her fleshly needs. When "the others" were able to catch a glimpse of her spirit, it brought jealous rage and envious predators who attempted to destroy her. But the light inside her heart was a continuous reminder that she had been birthed for a reason; a foretold prophecy it seemed. Then it became evident, this almost aborted child was a gift from God to the world. I am 24 years old now and for years I was battered and rebuked from the destiny that God designed for my existence. Deep down in the pits of soul, I have been exposed to my beauty and the power I have within. I am here to help others achieve and succeed in their life, to inspire, to love unconditionally, to teach and to protect while, I come into my own. My name is Jessica De Soto and I am the new original.
