Atlanta Learn to Dance and Charles Cuthbert were lifesavers for me, my now husband, and dad. Charles accommodated our schedules and location and ensured that we felt more than comfortable with our first dances. His coaching style was encouraging and supportive, while holding us to a very professional standard. Our dances turned out better than we all expected thanks to our work with Charles!
Rita is a GREAT dance instructor! We continue to use her to this day. I would highly recommend her.
Amy was fantastic, as were all of her 3rd party contacts she had to hire. Responsiveness, communication, and quality all 10/10. Will absolutely use her again.
"TJ" and 1 Step Above goes above and beyond to ensure that we as students meet our goals and stretch us to learn more. My husband and I used him for our wedding dance and as guest entertainment and he was a hit! If you're looking for camaraderie, exercise, social activities, community building, Detroit ballroom, line dancing, Chicago stepping, competitive dancing, wedding dance instruction, or all of the above, I highly recommend 1 Step Above!
I was impressed by the quality of the instruction and the professionalism of the dance instructor.
Coppelia has been great for my girlfriend and I who started taking salsa lessons for something fun to learn. Guys, don't be scared, if she is patient enough to walk through steps with me who has zero dance experience and trips over himself walking down the street, you will be more than perfectly fine and in great hands. You really do make progress ever session and will feel like you are truly dancing salsa before you know it. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

My son and I had a private dance lesson today with Kristy to help us prepare for our Mother-Son dance at his upcoming wedding - it was fabulous!! We were pretty awkward at first, but Kristy quickly put us at ease and by the end we were doing all kinds of turns! It was so much fun and really helped us - Kristy was well prepared with our song and had some great idea - we are both so glad we went!!
