We had booked sunshine entertainment for our wedding and could not have been happier. Chris was so great to work with. He was able to work with some of our special music requests and definitely made the night so much fun. We had taken our dance lesson for our first dance with him and absolutely loved it. Our guests were surprised we didn't do the traditional slow dance! There were some trials, all on our end but Chris was there and made everything run nice and smooth. Thanks for everything!! Would highly recommend.

We could not have found a better DJ and MC for our wedding. Chris did an amazing job. He was on time, professional, accommodating and friendly. And gave us a few dance lessons! If you are looking for a DJ look no further. You will not be disappointed.

Chris was the best. If I could give him more then 5 stars I would. Chris was the reason our wedding was a total success. he pulled the entire event together. And of course the dance lesson pulled it all together. Thank you Chris!!!! Ryan & Sara

In a city with so many world-class dancers and dance instructors, Linda Gergye truly stands out as one of the most talented and innovative in her field. I've taken classes in other parts of the US and abroad - her approach to teaching is so unique, highly engaging & totally effective. Linda is both professional and patient, tailoring each class to your learning speed and skill level. Sometimes we'll work on new steps, other times we'll focus more on technique, or working out some complicated, cool move I saw on YouTube! And every class I leave with a great workout. Working with Linda these past 9 months has been a real pleasure. As a beginner, it's incredible to have access to someone with her diverse set of dance styles and experience. I recommend Linda without hesitation!

I took Latin Dance lessons with Linda in New York and found her to be a fantastic teacher: very patient, highly knowledgable, and able to explain complex dances in a simple way

Olga was awesome to work with - my husband and I wanted to get some lessons for our first dance at our wedding and we're SO happy we found her. She knew exactly what style to do once she heard our song, and choreographed the whole thing for us from start to finish. Within the first lesson, she knew exactly what she wanted to teach us and have us do. And to top it off, she was so fun to work with! I think she probably had us laughing more times than not throughout our lessons - we highly recommend her!!!!

My husband and I can't recommend Olga enough to anyone looking to take dance lessons. We asked her to choreograph our wedding song. We wanted a slow song to start and then have it pick up to a fast song. She did such an excellent job. Our guests at the wedding loved it. She was fun to work with and very encouraging. She helped us create such a special moment we will never forget!

Although we had just a short time to prepare for our event, Olga taught us the basics of ballroom dancing in no time and we had a lot of fun. Yesterday at the ball we owned the dancefloor;-) We can totally recommend Olga!

We were scrambling to find a wedding instructor weeks before our wedding. We found Jose through Thumbtack and did a consultation based off his wonderful reviews. We did a total of five lessons. It was definitely nerve-racking but through his years of experience and patience, we felt more comfortable than when we first came into his studio. He is simply the best when it comes to ballroom dancing. People are still raving about our performance weeks after our wedding. Thanks again for everything! -The Crisols

Jose excels in technique & styling, and he is a kind, patient and understanding mentor ~~ you will discover aspects of yourself you never knew! So much fun!!

I came to Irina with two left feet and a whole lot of trepidation. I had only danced a few times previously, and because I really had no clue what I was doing, I was a bit uncomfortable. Irina helped to change that. In just a handful of lessons, Irina taught me the basic steps, how to lead, and a few showy moves so I can make my date look hot on the dance floor! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to learn to dance, and will be returning myself for salsa lessons! Thank you Irina!

Irina is an amazing instructor who was able to work well with a group! She was very communicative and flexible in our planning stages and brought lots of fun to our salsa class. I would absolutely recommend Irina (MAP 2 Rhythm) for your dance instruction needs. I know I will be reaching out to Irina in the future!

I'm a longtime student of Liz Peterson's, so obviously I think she's wonderful. She's very articulate, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and a great dancer! She's also very patient, has a great sense of humor, and wants her students to be the best they can be. She makes simply taking a dance class as enjoyable as an evening out dancing. My one bit of advice for new male students (female students don't seem to have this problem)-- is just relax and trust Liz. It may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but Liz just wants to make sure she's giving you all the information you need to do well. But think about it-- if you tried to use words to explain how to stand up and walk, it would sound far more complicated than it actually is. So, just try to absorb what she's saying-- you don't need to memorize everything-- relax, and have fun! Oddly enough, the more you relax, the more you'll learn!

Liz Peterson is truly the best dance teacher my husband and I have had--and we've taken ballroom/latin dance quite a number of times. She is a GREAT communicator and demonstrator, a great dancer, steeped in knowledge of the dances and their history and culture, and a wonderfully warm, caring and funny human being. And I know that everyone else in the classes we've taken with her has felt the same way. Can't recommend her highly enough.

JesAnn is a tar combination of great dancer, patient instructor, and articulate teacher. I've had lessons with people who can dance but aren't great teachers - Jes is both! Ye, she will push you, but in a good way and will make sure you have fun along the way. After having worked with her for several years, I can confidently say that it doesn't matter if you have two left feet, or you been dancing for years, she can help you!

My boyfriend and I took swing dancing lessons from Jes. To say that we are klutzy would be an understatement. However, Jes was always so patient and made the dancing so much fun. My boyfriend was pretty reluctant about it until he met Jes and then he was on board. Jes was always so sweet and remembered what we had told her on previous visits. She's also an AMAZING dancer and I'm always so impressed by her skills.

My Dance lessons with Jes were some of the best I've ever had. She got me off my feet and showed me what West Coast Swing was all about. She was always, always professional, on time, and for a great price too. I now think of her as a good friend and I'm always excited when she comes to Texas.

Dear Monika, Thank you so much for helping to make our first dance such a hit. Our guests went crazy when they saw us break into a routine. We are so glad that we found you. We wanted to create a routine to Michael Jackson’s PYT and tried to teach ourselves since we have some basic moves on the dance floor, but we had trouble learning MJ moves. After taking 5 hours of classes with you, we felt like we had the moves down and felt much more comfortable performing in front of our family and friends. You were such a great teacher. You broke down the moves into small parts to make it easier for us to learn and you created a routine based on our skill levels. We had a lot of fun in our lessons and would recommend you to anyone looking for a private lesson. Thank you for everything!

We went to Monika mostly for first dance choreography and some basic instruction on dancing together in general. She was such a patient and fun instructor, and helped us nail a somewhat unorthodox, fast song (cold water by Justin Bieber/major lazer) in just 5 lessons. She listened to us and changed things around when certain steps weren't working, and the end result was a dance we both had a blast performing at the wedding. All our guests loved it and said it was one of the highlights of the whole weekend. We would totally recommend Monika or use her again if we ever need more dance help!

I was so nervous for my wedding dance class. Me and my fiancé have never taken any dance lessons and we were terrified about dancing in front of other people. Monika is super patient, she wasn't rushing us, explained the movements until we got them right which was super encouraging! I'm honestly surprised how well our first dance is looking. Highly recommended instructor, thank you Monika xo

I've been taking dance lessons from Alexei for many years and find that each year gets more interesting in what I am able to achieve. He is the most patient, understanding and talented instructor I could hope to find. Although I don't take lessons from Lola, I can attest to her talent and patience also. Further, they are both genuinely interested in their students and the progress they make. I consider them super!

Dance Star Academy is a fantastic place to learn to dance. The teachers are amazing and caring and knowledgeable. I've had lessons at other dance studios but none that compares. I recommend DSA to anyone that wants to dance.

I had a short period of lessons from Eno, he was one of the best ballroom dance instructors I ever had. Picked up my weak points quickly and spent so much time to correct and answered all my endless questions till I was fully satisfied; hence, I didn't hesitate to ask anything I wondered and could talk openly, which is very important to build a good dancing relationship. By looking at his way to dance and teach, I thought he had danced almost 10 years but actually it was much less surprisingly. He must be so talented. I wish he were in my town, would highly recommend to all levels of dancers!!

Eno Young is a talented dancer and his instructional skills are surpass the norm. While patience is one of his strong attributes as an instructor, he strives to make his students the best they can be. He is creative, passionate, personable and very professional. An experience well worth having in your dancing life.

We absolutely loved working with Luna Dance Company to choreograph both an introductory and first dance for our wedding. Imani was so patient and kind and is such a talented dance instructor. She understood the type of dance we wanted from the beginning and was able to teach us the steps in only a few short weeks. Our dance is amazing and we can’t wait to share it with our wedding guests next week. We highly recommend this company especially for any beginners! Thank you both so much for everything!!
