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.

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 have wanted to take dancing lessons for a long time but my husband refused. He didn't want to embarrass himself and didn't think he had any sense of rhythm. But when Gary agreed to come to our home he finally agreed to try the free lesson. That was two months ago and now we're getting lessons every week and we're both loving it! Gary's relaxed approach and great sense of humor helped my husband overcome his fears. We highly recommend Gary for dance lessons.

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

Graceful she is, as she sashays the strength of her flexibility across any stage. Loving the fact that belly dancing is an art of the body I enjoyed seeing Latasha flow with nature as she pulls you into another time zone. Because of love and dedication she has to the art of bellydancing, it will be worth your while to support her and start to experience a piece of heaven.

My experience with this DJ is as his music pupil and bandmate; I attended several parties spun by DJ Arclight. He once threw me the most unforgettable halloween party that had people coming out of the woodworks to dance until dawn. He has one of the most eclectic vinyl collections I have ever come across, very intercontinental and with no apparent geographical boundaries, just all really superb modern dance music. You would never believe he was the leader of a southern thrash band, because DJ Arclight spins the classiest dance music you'll ever hear. DJ Arclight is an extremely talented musical genius with a knack for finding the creme of the crop and a huge amount of experience to boot. I still remember everything about that Halloween party, and I'm grateful to DJ Arclight for making it the most fashionable party ever!
