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.

I am submitting this late. My wedding took place on March 19, 2016 so this dance lesson took place on March 17, 2016. I do not remember the name of the dance teacher, but she saved my bachelorette party. We scheduled an art lesson and rented the art studio for an hour afterwards for a dance lesson. The dance teacher that we hired cancelled at the last minute. My mom, Marie found this salsa dancer on Thumbtack and she drove from Riverside to Downtown Los Angeles within an hour. We hired her 2 hours before the event and she was an hour early. We were all very pleased with her promptness, her professionalism, and her teaching skills. What began as a disaster, turned into one of the best memories of all of my wedding events. Thank you.

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.

It does not get better than these guys. We left our dance lessons till a week before wedding but still had high ambitions ( go figure) and somehow these two pros (not just in dancing but in kindness and communication...and realism) helped us achieve our dream dance in a realistic and effortless way. As a bride to have a professional actually behave professionally and take a burden off your shoulders and not just meet but exceed your high expectations the way they did is something I will forever be grateful for.

Mark taught my husband and I our first dance for our multicultural wedding. My husband and I had no prior dance training, and are both definitely the "wallflower" type. Thinking of the first dance caused both of us a lot of anxiety. Until Mark came in and changed our whole world and whole perception of how fun dance can be. Mark was always patient, an outstanding teacher, and truly made our first dance special. Our wedding was a multi-day event with numerous ceremonies and traditions from families of two distinct cultures. But dance lessons with Mark were a welcome respite from the hectic planning of the wedding. Mark taught us more than just dancing, he taught my husband and I to establish "connection", teamwork, and trust through dance! Now, my husband and I love to dance and it has become part of our lives, all thanks to Mark. I highly recommend Mark. He is an excellent teacher and you will love every minute of your dance lessons!

My husband and I were lucky enough to have Shannon give us a few lessons for our first dance at our wedding. In all, she is a wonderful, patient, encouraging teacher. She paced her lessons so well and was spot on in terms of giving us critiques we could understand and work with. Shannon was a total professional from her punctuality to her methodology- and I’d recommend her to anyone!

Eduard has been a master in ballroom dancing for many years. He's been a mentor for numerous professional dancers. Through his etiquette fashion, he teaches the language of dance with a passion and grace by explaining the most details of ballroom dancing. He loves what he does and it shows in his method of teaching. The utmost prime quality is his genuin, person-friendly character that allows a person to experience the world of dance with a level of euphoria. Eduard is professional in character overall which is second nature when it comes to teaching dance. His body language and choice of words makes it an inviting experience. With his high level of emotional intelligence, he understands a student's personality clearly, therefore uses various methods to communicate his teachings. He is attentive to students and values class time to connect with them. His punctuality is perfect. Never late to class and always ready with prepared teaching routines for the class session. I highly recommend Eduard to students at every level of dancing experience!

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.

Having met Elisa a couple of years ago after she moved to San Diego, I began to take supplemental dance lessons with her from time to time. Now, she is my primary partner in ProAm dance competitions. Elisa has found a way to motivate me to continue to improve my performance quality while making the dance experience fun. She has a gift for sensing what teaching methods get through to each student, as we all learn in different ways, without making lessons into rote drudgery. She also can sense when a student is getting overwhelmed my technique and knows when to back away and reinforce what you already know first before moving on to the newest concept. I have seen my ability as a competitive and social dancer improve more quickly with Elisa than with any other dance instructor with whom I have worked over the past six years.

Adrienne is an amazing dance instructor. Of course, she can teach you the basics, but what sets her apart is her ability to recognize your strengths and weaknesses and works with each. She clearly understands the nuance of dancing, foot work, weight shifts and timing, and how important they are to become the kind of dancer you want to be, should you want to compete professionally or just feel comfortable on any dance floor. She she has the ability to explain clearly and concisely what she wants you to do and how to get there. Just take one dance lesson with her, and you will never want anyone else to teach you. I guarantee it.

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'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!

Having had the opportunity to be a student of dance at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Pasadena CA., I can honestly say that JD Davis is an outstanding professional dance teacher who loves what he does! JD works patiently with his clients and gets to know them on a personal level in order to work with them more effectively. He is passionate about his craft and knowledge of dance. JD helps his clients learn and fine tune the choreography of any genre of dance be it, Ballroom, Fox Trot, Swing, Samba, Merengue, Salsa, to name just a few. JD was often requested as a teacher at our studio as he is approachable, friendly, professional, respectful,encouraging and hard working. What I loved most about JD was his sincere care and desire to make each of his students achieve their dance goals. JD is a promoter of good health and well being. He often encourages his students to set high standards for themselves and he lets his students know he will be right next to them every step of the way. If you ever see him dance you might easily understand why we, his students, all wanted to look like him on the floor! Smooth, with that touch of perfection! So Yes, I highly recommend JD Davis as your next dance teacher and someone you can trust to be available, punctual, and someone who eventually becomes unforgettable and helps you attain a greater sense of pride in your future endeavors involved in the realm of dance. ------------Sandra D.
