Donna is absolutely amazing! We are having a destination wedding so we didn’t have much time to learn our first dance. In just 2 sessions, she was able to choreograph a dance for us to practice at home, which was just what we needed. The dance is absolutely perfect for us and we love it. Also, Donna is so nice and welcoming and made us feel very comfortable even though we had no prior experience. I would definitely recommend working with Donna to prepare for a wedding or just for dance lessons!

Donna is the best !!! We were so excited to do this and it came out amazing. We are still even after the wedding getting constant feedback and compliments on our dance. People thought we were just good dancers because it came off natural! During lessons we would both get frustrated and Donna always was so patient. Trust the process for sure. She really knows what she’s doing and create a personalize dance you will never forget. I also love that she edits your music for you ! It made it so easy to send to the dj. She has her own studio and it’s so comfortable. Highly recommend doing this for your wedding and choosing Donna to help make it happen !!! Thank you so much and we were so proud and excited to send her a video right away !!!!!

Details: 26-35 • 36-45 • Two people • Ballroom • No experience • Preparing for a wedding • 60 minutes • As recommended by professional • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Our wedding is next weekend and we have taken 10 lessons. Within those 10 lessons we have came a long ways. My fiance has no rhythm at all. But with practice practice he knows this song the steps forward and backwards and backwards and forwards. I can't wait until next weekend to do our performance for our wedding and they're on this will be such a rememberable moment for the both of us. Every time we hear this song we can get up and just dance.

Details: 36-45 • 46-65 • Two people • Modern / Contemporary • No experience • Preparing for a wedding • 60 minutes • Once a week • At the pro’s location

Donna was excellent. She helped us to develop and rehearse a dance that was perfect for our chosen wedding song. Donna is extremely knowledgeable and talented. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking lessons.

Donna was an amazing teacher and helped us really make our dance a special moment. I am by no means a good dancer and was traveling for work alot. Donna worked with our tight schedule and my 2 left feet to ensure we had a dance that amazed our guests. Even more impressive she really helped us understand lines and spacial awareness so that even I missed a step here or there we were still set up for some breathtaking photos. Absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend!
