At this point I do not know much, but our initial conversation for lessons was very good. They seem to be very flexible and understanding and have a great deal of experience with giving lessons in Ballroom Dance. I'm looking forward to our first lesson.
Lessons are fun yet challenging. My husband has no prior dance experience but I am a former dancer - both of us are having fun, learning so much and getting better every lesson! Aleks is an excellent teacher and I would highly recommend North Shore Dance lessons to anyone.
I believed that I would not be able to dance with any amount of instruction. However, after 20 years of seeing my wife miss out on her love of dancing, I figured I would give it a try and signed us up for salsa lessons for Valentine's Day. After only 2 lessons, I knew the minimum needed to take my dancing and have fun! We plan to have at least 2 more lessons, and may continue with additional after that. I could not believe how comfortable I could be doing something I have always been self conscience about! I would highly recommend U Dance for anyone interested in learning how to dance.
Brittni is an exceptional dance instructor. She is great to work with. She took my non salsa dancing boyfriend and created a monster. He now has the confidence to dance anywhere we go. I knew the basics of salsa dancing and she helped me improve my moves. She has the patience to guide every step of the way. I highly recommend Brittni. We will definitely be calling on her again!
First and foremost let me start by saying that I consider it an honor and my pleasure to write a testimonial about Mr. Rick Mangram and the Hoton1salsa team. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Mangram about a year ago March, I was looking for an instructor that was not only giving private lessons but that had a place that I could feel comfortable enough to attempt and participate in the dance of salsa; I have always had a desire to learn Salsa, but never had the time or wherewithal to allow myself to try my hand. As I approach retirement and freeing up a busy work life I decided that it was time. That being said, I contacted Rick, and from the moment it has been an uphill and most pleasant experience. From the time I met Rick a year ago to present, I not only take private lessons from Rick once but some weeks twice a week, I attend most if not all the Hoton1salsa events and will continue with my attendance. When I am unable to attend it is due to my work schedule. I have attended many events by others and I find that Hoton1salsa events are without fail the best act in town, both city and suburbs. Notwithstanding Ricks professionalism , his dancing skills and teaching abilities the next most impressive quality that Rick has is his and his teams ability to make every person in the house feel that they are special and welcome, no one person goes without Rick, and his team knowing your name and showing you the Hoton1salsa love to quote Rick this is what we do this is shown by all of the team members, from greeting you at the door, to his dance partners assisting in the group lessons, as well shown by the DJs greeting you with warmth, let me not forget Rick simply taking time during the night to dance with any and all that ask, Rick is never too busy to assist a dancer with questions, a dance pattern or a dance. His energy level is amazing! The next impressive quality that Rick and his team has is their ability to host Date Night with your Kids, and have the kids thoroughly enjoy the night and learning to dance salsa, Rick and his team is equally as compassionate and understanding with the kids as they are with adults. Rick and company is positive, upbeat and most welcoming, I start my week with the Hoton1salsa team. I cannot say enough about Rick and his team they have changed my life with their smiles, love for salsa and compassion. Let me not forget because of Rick and his team I am on my way to learning and becoming a salsa dancer! Mr. Rick Mangram and the Hoton1salsa team exemplify the words friendliness, love of dance, excellence and professionalism.
My fiance and I at the time bought a living social dance lessons package at an awesome price that helped kick start our dance lessons. Steve (the owner) was fantastic, knowledgeable, and personable. We received individual dance lessons and Steve took us through all the different dances we could possibly do or want to do and from there he listened to our first dance song and we narrowed down what dance we wanted/could do for our wedding dance. After our living social package lessons were up my fiance and I were so impressed and pleased that we ended up buying their Bronze package for 15 additional lessons! These lessons took us more in depth within our first wedding dance (which turned out to be a Viennese Waltz). Each lesson lasted one hour and after each lesson we felt we had learned more and gotten better and more knowledgeable ourselves about dancing. When our wedding came we slam dunked our first dance and still our guests say that was the biggest surprise of our wedding (because we didn't tell anybody we were taking dance lessons) and that they had never seen a better first dance. My husband and I felt at ease after having our dancing lessons and more confident about dancing in general. The instructors really go at your pace and give examples, feedback, and make it fun! I have watched our first wedding dance about 50 times and still smile and feel proud at the end of it. What made this experience even better was how proud, enthusiastic, and excited Steve was about our first dance as well. Now that our wedding is over my husband and I are still going back to dance lessons and are excited to learn other dances and show those off to our friends and family as well. After researching all different dance studios that provide first wedding dance lessons, this was by far the best! I have loved every minute of it and would do it again in a heartbeat!!! I would recommend "Get on the Floor Dance Company" to anyone I talked to!!! After all, they truly did make me feel like Cinderella at my wedding during our first dance! We twirled around and I was on top of the world!!!
My husband and I enjoy going to salsa class. We love to spend time together and he enjoys dancing. It is absolutely exceptional service. Everyone is friendly and approachable. They break the steps down and make the whole experience a wonderful moment. I recommend it to all my friends.
I started taking salsa with Dennis, first just coming with a friend to a series of private lessons and then taking regular group salsa lessons with Dennis and continue to do so. That being said, I got addicted to his energetic lessons and started with ballroom and Tango and now to Zouk with visits to all the other forms. What I like about Dennis's programs is that he is one of the few real artists giving lessons in Chicago. He regularly travels to expose himself to what is new and different and to push himself to improve his skills. That love for dance and creativity keep it interesting no matter what dance form I'm studying under him, whether they be group or private.
My husband and I have been taking ballroom dance lessons off and on for about 25 years. In that time, we’ve had many teachers. We’ve enjoyed something about all those experiences. But, Anna is the whole package! She’s a beautiful dancer, she’s an excellent teacher, she is patient, creative, and very professional. One of the things we really appreciate about her is how flexible and spontaneous she can be. Sometimes I come in with an idea of something I want to work on, without knowing the name of it or even being able to show her what it looks like. However she always knows what I’m talking about and will figure it out for me. And best of all-we always have a great time with her!
Malinee is fantastic! She's a true professional who is knowledgeable about many different dance styles. She taught me the basics of Salsa and I would definitely use her again.
Charles was a fantastic instructor! My wife and I wanted to have a special salsa dance at our wedding and we had Charles help us out. We had taken some classes in the past but never constructed a full dance. Within a few classes, Charles was able to help us perfect a number of moves, constructed the whole dance for us with music, and even gave us a slower version of the music track so it matches our speed. The wedding was a lot of fun, everyone loved the dance and it looks so good on video too! Once again thanks Charles for a wonderful experience.
Liz is FABULOUS!! I tried dancing at Chicago SummerDance a bunch of timesbut I was no good. I saw Liz dancing with an older guy at about five SummerDances. He also wasnt very good in the beginning, but he looked like he was having a lot of fun. By the fifth time I saw them, he was a WAY better dancer. So I introduced myself to Liz and asked if she gave private dance lessons (OK, shes also really attractive ). No surpriseshe said yes. Ive since taken a lot of private dance lessons with hermostly swing, but also salsa and bachata. In the beginning, I lacked confidence and was very self-conscious. But Liz is a great teacher and has helped me a ton, including learning how to relax and have funimagine that :) Ive developed a lot more confidence, I've had a FABULOUS timeand Im 10 times the dancer I was! Liz is super: talented, fun-loving, genuine, observant, adaptable and caring. From the first time I saw her, it was clear that she had helping profession written all over her faceand Ive had the joy of experiencing her kindness and talent ever since.
The 2 hour dance lesson only tapped the surface of knowledge that Dennis has. He really cared and wanted me to learn. I was apprehensive but he quickly made me feel at ease.
