My partner and I took seven private lessons with Petra while on vacation in the Sarasota area. She is an excellent, reliable, punctual, and delightful teacher. Both of us felt that way. We would recommend her highly, without hesitation. If we return to the area we will take more lessons with her. Neither of us knew how to dance and in a short period we were doing fox trot, rumba, and salsa. She is patient and kind, with a sense of humor.

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

Petra was amazing! She helped us newbies that didn’t know anything and helped us find our rhythm. her choreography for our first dance felt comfortable and right at our level to make our wedding day super special. Highly recommend her! Super attentive and detail oriented. 10/10!

Our First Dance together after we were Wed was a Landmark Event for us - My Husband & I are Avid Dancers & Petra came through for us with a Choreographed Piece that quickly became a Most Treasured Memory of our Wedding Day -

Petra was so supportive; I always felt like she genuinely cared about me and my dance goals. My experience with Petra as a teacher really cultivated my love for dance, I feel confident recommending her to others who wish to learn.
