We had Dan for our wedding first dance lessons. From the get-go, Dan had a very detailed, yet easy to follow instructions. We don't have any dancing background, yet he put so much trust in us to perform some amazing moves and created a unique routine. Everyone at our wedding were thoroughly impressed with our dance. Thank you Dan!

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!

In short, Caroline is a fantastic teacher and you should absolutely take lessons from her if you're interested in learning Salsa. Caroline is warm, kind, patient, and understanding. I confessed immediately to her that I had "two left feet" and no prior dance experience. This was no obstacle to her. Our lesson included a lot of rhythm work. Though it was my first lesson, I'm already feeling more confident. To top things off, she gave me "homework" to ensure I could continue teaching myself some muscle memory. It is very clear she is very gifted as both a dancer and a teacher!

My fiance and I had an amazing dance lesson with Dina! She was super responsive and flexible in scheduling the lesson and it was well worth the money! We look forward to more lessons before and after the wedding!

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.

Marge is amazing! She knows what she's doing and what you need to focus on once she sees you dancing. She has lots of experience under her belt. She knows more than 15 different dances and loves to dance and have a great time. From just 2 salsa lessons I'm loving it!

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.

Daniel is so great. We took beginner's salsa lessons. Daniel is a consummate professional - reliable, communicative, knowledgeable, patient, good-natured, flexible, funny, and versatile. He was equally good at explaining things to me in dance terms and to my (beginner) boyfriend using analogies that felt more accessible to him. We made a surprising amount of progress in a short time, and Daniel was super understanding when we barely practiced between lessons, helping us catch back up and still make progress every lesson. Daniel is also just a really chivalrous person and really brings the politesse of being a good dance partner into the lesson. Highly recommend getting a package of lessons with Daniel. It's a good value and those extra few lessons can take you from just-the-basics to having a reasonable set of moves that you can build on and improvise from.

She incorporates her dance experience to make the workouts fun and challenging. She has adapted exercises to improve my balance and stability. She is a delightful trainer to work with. I look forward to each training session.

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.

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 girlfriend and I signed up for swing dance lessons after taking a number of group classes and feeling like we reached the limit of what we could learn alone. Eliott watched us dance briefly and already had specific suggestions for how to improve. He had a great style of explaining *why* a certain technique was going to be easier, and had concrete advice for how to improve it (e.g. instead of "your leads aren't clear enough", it was "keep your elbow closer to your side"). He was very friendly, and I felt like I had improved a ton after only a few months of weekly lessons.

I have been taking lessons for about 10 years from Sonly. She is absolutely the best. Not only is she patient, knowledgeable, skilled at teaching, and fun, she’s also so encouraging and positively supportive. I love her class. She has taught me so much , like using my core, etc.

Walter is a wonderful dance instructor. When I started learning dance, I was a complete novice. Walter structured my lessons in a sequential fashion that gradually built my skills to what some label "silver" level enjoyment. I especially like the way Walter took MY goals into consideration. I did not wish to compete, but to become a better than average dancer, focused mostly on smooth dance and some light rhythm, so that I might enjoy social dance opportunities. My weekly dance lessons have become the highlight of my week! 💃

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!

Nikolai is my Latin dance teacher and I have been dancing with him since January 2018. In a short amount of time, I have improved my dancing so much that we competed at the San Francisco Open in April 2018 on the Open Silver category earning 1st places in all single dances (chacha, samba, rumba, pasodoble and jive). Nik is an expert dance teacher who has great knowledge and enthusiasm. He is patient and gives just the right level of instruction and correction. I enjoyed every dance lesson with Nik and I highly recommend him.
