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!
Desiree was such a pleasure to work with! We found Desiree on Yelp after finding out the person we originally wanted to commit to was no longer available and it honestly could not have worked out for the better! Desiree choreographed our waltz + hip-hop dance (~3.5 mins) over the course of 6 45-minute lessons (1 of those lessons was an evaluation for her to test our ability to handle certain difficulty levels and direction). DESIREE THE INSTRUCTOR: She was extremely patient and flexible with our schedules and not once pushed for any extra lessons we didn't need. Her technique made it really easy for us to grasp certain movements that we found difficult to learn. It made us feel good that she took the time to repeat anything we weren't sure of. After we had gotten the steps down, she made sure we took time to focus on hand movements/gestures and facial expressions (another really important part of any dance performance). DESIREE + YOU: It's important to note that learning a dance is a two-way street: you need to put in the time to practice and memorize your choreography, too. Your money and Desiree's time will go to waste if you don't commit to practicing. Desiree got us to feel comfortable in breaking out of our boxes to do something challenging and fun for our wedding -- it was worth every penny invested in these lessons. My husband and I got to bond over trying something new and we enjoyed every moment of it. I hope we never forget the choreography! We will be sending anyone interested in dance lessons her way. DESIREE'S MASTERPIECE: You can find our choreographed dance here: Angle 1 (youtu.be/N1ODzIxOl88) Angle 2 (youtu.be/oXn2FFTHvQ4)
Excellent instructor who really went the extra mile to teach salsa to novice dancers at our Cinco de Mayo party.
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.
I went to a Pilates class and dance class. As an adult these are exercises I enjoy, but not being a dancer am a little intimidated by. Ellen was amazing! Even though there were dancers in the class she made feel completely comfortable and not under level. I first tried Pilates and felt it for days. Muscles I didn't know I had! So then I tried dance. Again, she made me feel ok that I want trained but I was definitely pushed to the limits of the pros. I will be continuing going.
Jasmine is an excellent teacher. We've been learning with her weekly in preparation for our wedding first dance. She's very patient and good at explaining despite our utter lack of experience with dance. She can teach a variety of dances, including east coast swing, lindy hop, and argentine tango! We haven't started choreographing our dance yet, but Jasmine will be definitely helping us with that as well. Looking forward to more fun lessons with her!
My [then] fiancée and I took lessons from Eliott for our first dance. Eliott was patient, fun, and an excellent teacher. We recommended him to our friends who also took lessons for their first dance!
Kurt Senser is an amazing instructor! He has transformed my dancing from all over the place and wobbly to precise and smooth. I've been taking private lessons with him for about 2 years now. I started out with Country 2 Step, then went to West Coast Swing and am now learning Night Club 2 Step. One of the things that has helped me so much in working with Kurt is that he can be technical in his teaching. This is what I needed. I need to know where my foot is now and where it needs to be. For those ladies who think they need a partner to take private dance lessons, don't do it! Go by yourself and/or let your partner take a separate lesson with Kurt. You will see amazing results! I carry Kurt's cards with me in my boot bag and tell everyone who compliments me on my improved dancing, who made it happen. Kurt has a great personality and no matter what your skill level, you will feel comfortable and look forward to your next dance lesson. I know I do!

I can also offer beginner tap, jazz, or ballet lessons to the little ones who are interested in growing up to be versatile dancers.
