I hired Exceptionally Yours Weddings & Events for dance lessons and as a day-of coordinator for my out-of-town wedding. Crystal handled our dance lessons and preliminary day-off planning, and Storm acted as our day-of coordinator. My now husband and I were very happy with the service we received from both. Crystal is especially knowledgeable and was instrumental in ensuring things were taken care of beforehand, and Storm was wonderful at dealing with the hectic day-of events. I even got compliments from both guests and other vendors on Storm's professionalism and responsiveness! I would highly recommend them, as they great at what they do and are very affordable for the area.

My wife and I started taking dance lessons with Alexis about one month before our daughter’s wedding two and a half years ago. Although we had no dance experience before we started, Alexis got us sufficiently prepared so that we were able to dance with some confidence. After the wedding we continued our lessons at Alexis’ urging and after about 18 months she convinced us to compete in the newcomer amateur couples division which was quite an accomplishment considering how uncoordinated we were at the start. Since then we competed in a couple more competitions under Alexis’ expert guidance. She is an amazing instructor who seems to know every dance style and every detail of footwork and body position. Needless to say she is an accomplished dancer with an incredible flair and personality on the dance floor. Even though she has been our only teacher I have been able to observe other instructors with their students and her teaching style is far superior to anyone I’ve seen. It’s obvious she enjoys both teaching and dancing. Her students range in age from young to old, at various ability levels. She has even taught students with physical disabilities, showing how accomplished and professional she is. If anyone is even just considering taking lessons they should take at least one lesson from her and they’ll be hooked. She’s funny, inspiring, and a perfectionist, but not in a heavy handed way. I can’t imagine taking lessons from anyone else!!

Bryan is brilliant! My son has been taking break dancing lessons with Bryan for less then a year & he loves it! He looks forward to going because Bryan makes it fun for him which is awesome because my son is only 4 :) He's also very patient in teaching him new dance moves & has great technique. I know my son is in good hands when he's with Bryan & I couldn't have asked for a better dance teacher!

My Australian fiancee and I are getting married this coming weekend and we needed to arrange for some very last minute dance lessons. Lucky for us, Debra came through to save the day! Her technique of teaching us to "trust our partner" and "feel each other's cues" made for an amazing experience. We were also impressed with the obvious thought Debra put into our song selection, having already mapped out the best choreography ahead of time. We can't wait to show off our dancing skills at our wedding!

Shyrelle has been working with my daughter for about a month now. My daughter needed hip hop & jazz lessons so that she could perform in her talent show at summer camp as well as try out for the dance team next year. I've seen her vastly improve in such a short time. Shyrelle implements discipline & fun & is so great with teens. Highly recommended!

Shawn and Katie are not dance instructors, they are miracle workers. They were patient, enthusiastic, flexible, and had tons of adaptability to my learning needs. I look forward to scheduling future dance lessons with them.

Working With Sam Allen was the most amazing experience. Sam gave me private Hip Hop dance lessons and was phenomenal. He was encouraging, patient, and pushed me to my highest potential. Sam was accommodating, professional, and made me feel like a super star. He teaches at your pace and to your ability. I learned so much and had so much fun at the same time. I highly recommend Sam to anyone of all ages and levels of experience. There is no better teacher out there.

My fiancee and I were looking for a teacher to teach us to dance for our first dance at our wedding. My beloved had NEVER been a dancer and was also reluctant to dance in front of others. We were very lucky to find Sarah. From our very first lesson, it was clear that she is abundantly gifted, easy to work with and perfectly charming. Each lesson with her was a highlight of our week; she taught us very quickly and effectively, kept our lessons fun and light, and gave us exactly what was within our skill set and comfort level. Sarah has a lovely manner and having seen her with students before and after our lesson time; we observed that Sarah is able to tailor EACH lesson to each student. Every dance looked different and simply perfect for the particular student/couple. Our wedding just passed and our friends were impressed, entertained and delighted with our 'performance' and we look forward to continuing our lessons with Sarah now that my beloved and I have the dancing 'bug'! I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about Sarah and he teaching style; she has quite a lot of satisfied students and it is easy to see why that's the case.

About

Most dance instructors have no organization to their courses and lessons plans for their individual students. I believe that this "random" lesson plan type of teaching is very unproductive and not beneficial for the students. If the students are not using what they learned from the previous lesson, then they are not growing as dancers.

Moses Ramos is a fantastic dance instructor with so much passion for dance. His way of teaching dance lessons makes it fun yet very informative. Moses is very patient while he teaches and offers great advice to improve our dance moves. During competitions, Moses is very passionate, sharp, articulate, and expressive. I give Moses an Outstanding 5-star rating!

Awesome place for kids to learn and master the art of music... My daughter took guitar,piano and voice lessons... Unfortunately we had to move and she can no longer attend... I wish they would open a location near Riverside so my daughter could continue with her art education... If you're looking for professional and affordable music classes for your kids then Piano Place Music and Arts Center is the right place for them. I am happy that my daughter had the opportunity to be a student at this family owned music school and I hope she can come back in the near future..... Beautiful family and very nice/professional teachers!

I have a passion and extensive knowledge on various styles of dance, including ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, hip-hop, basic salsa, dancing in heels, and more. I myself have been a dancer for 16 years and have danced professional for artists, such as Beyonce and Lady Gaga. I wish nothing more than to share my love and passion for movement and physical strength with others providing them with a comfortable and safe environment .

I teach swimming and Zumba lessons in the privacy of their own homes. I'll support you on your weight loss goals. Each lesson is about an hour, but with warmups, warming down and stretching, it's more like 45 minutes of a good sweat.
