Trust me when I say I'm the last person you would think of as a dancer. I've never really enjoyed it because I didn't really understand it or know what to do. No one ever taught me. But... Gonzo is freaking awesome! No one has ever explained the basic foundations of dance in a way I could have fun with. Within one lesson, Gonzo not only taught me more about dance, music and beats in a way that is easy to understand, but he also got me more excited to learn more about dance than I have ever been. Also, I felt very comfortable speaking with him as if he was an old friend. You can tell he really enjoys dance and loves seeing people learn and improve, and he has awesome energy. Needless to say, my search for a dance instructor is over, I'll definitely be back for more and I'll recommend him to anyone I know who is looking to get into dancing whether it be for social outings, a special event or competition. If you are hesitant or skeptical about dance and your ability like I was, definitely do yourself a favor and take at least one lesson with Gonzo and chances are your views and beliefs about dance will change.

In the midst of late-stage wedding planning, the thought came out of nowhere that it might be nice to take dance lessons. I brought this up to my fiancé and his immediate reaction was negative. We were already juggling too many vendors and responsibilities, he said. Where would we find the time, he asked. I reached out to Uttara anyway and scheduled a trial first class. We met her and immediately felt at ease. She asked us what song we had in mind, and when we played it for her (it's very different than the normal first dance fare) she thought about it for a second, remarked that it was different, then told us she knew exactly what kind of dance would go with it. And off we went! At the end of the first class, my fiancé was much more optimistic and we agreed to do the five class package. After the first few classes, we couldn't wait for our next class. Neither of us had any dancing experience but Uttara was always patient with us and never laughed at our clumsy mistakes. Her upbeat and postive energy went a long way to helping us learn, and she made every class so much fun! When it came time to pull off our big dance at our wedding, we somehow pulled it off and no one could believe what we had done! My mom kept clapping her cheeks and saying it was like DWTS (it was not) and the venue coordinator told us that in her ten years there, we were the first couple to do something like that. My friends' eyes were bugging out of their heads! It was so worth it, and a memory that we will cherish for the rest of our lives, and we owe it all to Uttara!

Working with Priti Gupta-Udeshi was such a refreshing experience! She recently choreographed a wedding dance sequence for the family wedding and was able to cater to dancers of various levels of expertise / style / comfort levels (both both in person and via video) with such ease and elan. Her dance move analogies are hilarious, relatable and so easy to remember. We had a fantastic sequence and practicing for the dance was one of the best memories my family has of the wedding. Thank you Priti.. we miss you now that you moved.

I cannot express my appreciation for the artistic vision Gabriel contributes to the youth dance program each year. I especially enjoyed a hip hop piece he choreographed to singing in the rain for our summer program. The students and staff enjoy working with him.

Asala was amazing! We had her come to entertain our wedding guests and she was an absolute hit! Everyone was taking pictures with her and dancing with her. She looked like she was having a great time too! Her belly dance routine is both very tasteful and great for audience participation. Working with her as a vendor was great. I hired her on Thumbtack in August of 2016 for my wedding which would be about a year later (May 2017). She was very courteous and helpful over the phone and has lots of sample photos and video media to share. She let us customize everything: the order of her routine, the music selection, her costume and props, and she even helped combine her performance in with the groomsmen dance performance. Asala's service was quite affordable and fair too. So all in all, she was an absolute delight to work with and she is someone I can highly recommend with great confidence. Thank you Asala!!

I've been taking ballroom lessons with Ray for about 6 years. He's a fabulous instructor. Watching him dance is like viewing living art. In addition to time spent in class, he and some of his students gather to practice a couple of nights a month at a local ballroom, where he takes the time to dance with and coach his students. Dance students of all levels would benefit from his instruction.

My experience dancing with and learning choreography from Brandy has been great. She is skilled in multiple genres of dance and is able to work with anyone from beginner to advanced levels. Brandy has a passion for and takes pride in what she does. She puts in the extra time to make sure you are comfortable with the choreography. Dancing with Brandy is an EXPERIENCE and I would gladly recommend her to anyone who is interested in learning the art of dance.

Layla was hired for an Arabian themed 16th birthday party for our granddaughter at our home. Leyla was wonderful and she gave a great performance. She kept the crowd wanting more and her audience participation was great. She did a little special dance with my granddaughter and my granddaughter had so much fun with her. She had the young and the old shacking there hips. The party was a hit and the folks are still talking about it. She was beautiful and so professional. I would recommend Leyla to my family and friends or anyone for there event. Thanks Leyla

Yesterday was my father's Surprise 75th Birthday party and Samira Shuruk was the perfect choice for our entertainment for the night. I must say, I have some background in kathak, bharata natyam, and Odissi (all forms of Indian classical dance) and I was incredibly delighted with Samira's performance! She has clearly studied kathak, and holds that integrity throughout her performance. Her ability to express the songs shocked everyone, and her elegance was spell binding. She literally made a great night, a MAGICAL night that we will all remember, largely because of her performance. Her energy is professional, yet light and fun! Exactly what we wanted! My father LOVED her performance! Her song choices are nostalgic and had the entire audience engaged the entire time ... It was the most I've seen him smile in a long time. My entire family was asking for her card to hire for upcoming weddings and parties. Yeah, it was that kind of performance! If you are looking for that something special to add to your event, and you want a performance based in authentic Indian culture and heritage, you have found the right person.

    I have performed with Zhywa on stage and worked with her in class for 4 years. She is a talented Bellydancer with knowledge of several dance styles including Egyptian and Turkish. She understands stage craft including costuming and performance placement and stylization. Her choreography is imaginative and her combinations are luscious and beautiful. She has a sweet personality and she will work hard to make sure her students are successful.
