We hired Mindy to help my husband and me with our first dance for our wedding. She was very dedicated in preparing our dance routine and ensuring that we were comfortable with the dance moves. We had two dance lessons. The first was very helpful in introducing the dance steps and getting used to the foot work. We recorded the dance routine with Mindy which was extremely helpful in observing how natural and elegant the dance is supposed to look like. Our second dance lesson was focused on refining the dance moves and make alterations that was best suited for our level. She had a good eye for the 2nd dance lesson to make adjustments that made sense for us. Overall, we were very pleased with hiring Mindy as a dance teacher and making our first dance a success! She also comes to your home which is a plus and makes it very convenient. She is willing to work with your schedule and is very committed in ensuring you are completely happy with her service. We highly recommend Mindy as a dance teacher!!

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.

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!

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.

What a great dance teacher! I am so happy that I found Kathy Levyn. She is amazing. I have had several private lessons and am learning so much. She has so many ways to teach that make it easy and fun. She has a wonderful personality. The best part is I'm gaining more confidence. If you need a dance teacher, I'd highly recommend her. She got me to dance and I'm going to my first ballroom dance to test it out! I also went to a practice dance and I survived! I love it. I plan on being with Kathy for a long time. I love that she has flexible hours, her prices are very reasonable, she is fun to dance with, and is a very nice person. You will learn so much, have fun, and it is great exercise.

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.

Lisa Marie gave us dance lessons for our wedding, and we could not have been happier! She was professional and fun. She helped us improve our dancing, but also made the whole process a real pleasure. I would recommend her to anyone looking for dance lessons for their wedding. She is wonderful to work with and you will not only have a great looking first dance, you will have a fabulous time in the process.

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!

Kevin was an awesome instructor for me and my husband! We both have little experience on the dance floor and Kevin was able to create a simple yet elegant First Dance ballroom routine that we could learn within weeks of our wedding. He gave us tips on posture, frame and how to relax. We loved his enthusiasm for dance and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Kelly helped us with basic moves to make us feel more comfortable with our first dance and then worked with our whole wedding party to do a group dance. We love our enthusiastic (even rowdy) wedding party friends, and knew it would take a pro to make it happen. Somehow Kelly managed to get them all to learn the dance. Everyone was surprised and impressed bu both dances, we kept them a secret. It was one of the best things we did to make the reception feel extra special.

My work stands out because I accept kids as young as 12 months into my studio. I also don't focus on recitals as much as I focus on making dance fun for the kids. I instill the basic rules and discipline of dance, while still allowing the kids to be kids and just have fun.
