We contacted them about lessons for my daughter's wedding. What a joy they have been to deal with. They are very upbeat, friendly and very professional! They've been very patient with my husband and I who have NEVER done anything like this (we're both 56). Not only have they been very patient and kind but they've made it so enjoyable we truly look forward to our lessons every week. Initially we thought we'd do this a couple of weeks and just get some basics. Now we're hooked for life! In addition they've worked separately with the wedding couple so we don't have to see the big dance before the big day! I highly recommend Natalie, Krystal and everyone at Move the Beat to anyone interested in trying dancing for the first time, or anyone interested in improving their skills. Their prices are more than reasonable compared to the Big Name places too!

About

We are more energetic and laughing is the key to keep the class going! Its good to be technical but at the same time you want to be relax and understand what is being taught to you. I love to see when students get the combination down, quickly meaning that I am doing my job to the upmost satisfaction. Also when the students call me and tell me that they went to a party and everyone was bragging about how good they are. That makes me proud!
