It was such a great time working with Donna. She’s upbeat, reliable, and knows her stuff. We didn’t come to the lessons with any real experience, but by the end we left very confident. I’m so glad we did a choreographed first dance for our wedding! Thanks, Donna!

Do yourself a favor and book Donna asap!! I booked Donna for my wedding dance lessons and it was the best decision I made. First off, she is the cutest person ever, has the most amazing energy, and it is so apparent she loves what she does. She worked so hard on choreographing our special dance, and really gave us so much help to make sure it was perfect. Our dance lessons were so fun, I honestly miss them!! Our dance came out incredible and its literally the #1 thing our guests can’t stop talking about. Donna is truly amazing and her lessons are so reasonable for how much she time and attention she gives you. Book her!!

Details: Two (ex. me and my partner) • First dance • What my teacher recommends • No, I do not have choreography in mind • Beginner • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Donna was more then patient and amazing. She took the time to help us with our vision and the dance was a hit at our wedding. We only took 4 lessons with her because we decided to have a choreographed first dance last minute but she made sure to take videos of us, so we could review and practice on our own and it totally worked out.

Details: Two (ex. me and my partner) • First dance • What my teacher recommends • No, I do not have choreography in mind • No experience • At the pro’s location

Learning Bachata with Donna has been an incredible experience! Her passion for dance shines through in every lesson, making each session not only informative but also incredibly fun. Her patience and clear instructions have been instrumental in helping me grasp the intricacies of Bachata. I truly appreciate her dedication and expertise, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn and enjoy the art of dance.
