In the midst of late-stage wedding planning, the thought came out of nowhere that it might be nice to take dance lessons. I brought this up to my fiancé and his immediate reaction was negative. We were already juggling too many vendors and responsibilities, he said. Where would we find the time, he asked. I reached out to Uttara anyway and scheduled a trial first class. We met her and immediately felt at ease. She asked us what song we had in mind, and when we played it for her (it's very different than the normal first dance fare) she thought about it for a second, remarked that it was different, then told us she knew exactly what kind of dance would go with it. And off we went! At the end of the first class, my fiancé was much more optimistic and we agreed to do the five class package. After the first few classes, we couldn't wait for our next class. Neither of us had any dancing experience but Uttara was always patient with us and never laughed at our clumsy mistakes. Her upbeat and postive energy went a long way to helping us learn, and she made every class so much fun! When it came time to pull off our big dance at our wedding, we somehow pulled it off and no one could believe what we had done! My mom kept clapping her cheeks and saying it was like DWTS (it was not) and the venue coordinator told us that in her ten years there, we were the first couple to do something like that. My friends' eyes were bugging out of their heads! It was so worth it, and a memory that we will cherish for the rest of our lives, and we owe it all to Uttara!
Priti was kind enough to come to our home and give us dance lessons for our Wedding.
Kat was an awesome dance instructor and choreographer for our first dance as husband and wife. When i first made contact with her, whe was quick to respond to my many questions. We reached out to her with less than a month until our wedding, and she was able to schedule us very quickly, within a few days of confirming we would work with her. I appreciated her responsiveness, rates, and availability, so I chose her over four others I had been in touch with on Thumbtack. We met with her three times leading up to the wedding for our two minute dance. During the first two lessons, she showed us the choreography, and in the final lesson, we perfected our moves. She made a custom two minute mp3 of our song for us, and also took video of us dancing the choreography, so we would have that to practice on our own. She was also flexible and understanding when we had to reschedule one of our sessions. We both felt really confident when we danced on our wedding day, and I think our guests really liked it. My husbamd, who previously had no dance experience, got a lot of compliments from his guy friends, so he was very happy. You won't regret working with Kat. Thanks again!
Gonzalo Zambrana has been my ballroom dance instructor for 16 years. I wanted to work with him because I knew he could teach all styles of partner dancing. He is a patient teacher and uses many different ways to explain and show exactly what he is trying to help his student learn. He quickly picks up on how an individual student learns and adjusts his teaching accordingly. He is also very knowledgeable about how the body works and how to protect it from injury.
For TENNIS volume of students I teach per week during the peak of summer in classes and small groups is 80 - 100. In BALLROOM DANCING student evaluations of past classes have praise our instruction skills. Class size has grown consistently from 8 originally to over 20. In PIANO I can incorporate simple composing technique (if desired) into the lesson structure to enhance learning in a creative way. Sharing knowledge with enthusiastic students, guiding them and seeing them develop new skils and enjoyment.
I wanted to learn to dance in order to be more social and mingle. I choose BlacKatz Jam because i heard what an EXCELLENT instructor Chyna is. And she certainly is!! She's engaged and excited about teaching, knows ALL the moves, and had me dancing in real dance shoes from the very beginning. Now i go dancing at least once a week!!! Learning to dance with Chyna was the best training i could have imagined. I've now moved on from salsa to ballroom and can't wait to add that to my outings! If you really want to learn the moves, understand the music and be comfortable in your shoes, give BlacKatz a try. She really is wonderful!! Miriam Rudder
Wow! We made the best choice in Alina as a dance instructor. Dance lessons were my favorite part of the whole wedding planning process. I looked forward to it every week and I also loved practicing in between. Alina is a real teacher and choreographer. There is structure to the one hour lesson. We learned basic steps individually with her leading us, then she wove those steps into a dance using our chosen song, then she would make sure we repeated it enough times to commit it to memory and give us recommendations/corrections. In the last 5 minutes of class she had us do the dance one more time full out while she video taped it on my phone. This was so helpful because then if we forgot anything we could go back to the video. Alina was very personable, but I say that she's a real teacher because she knows how to get down to business and make progress within the one hour class. We didn't waste any time and we made so much progress in just 4 classes. My partner was not as enthusiastic as me from the beginning, but my partner said she wished that we had started earlier and booked 10 lessons. I watched my partner's confidence grow over the course of the 4 lessons which was really a bonus for both of us and I attribute that to Alina's guidance and instruction. I am certain also that Alina can choreograph dance after dance even in her sleep. Her mind is filled with dance moves and she's able to quickly and expertly weave them together for the dance. We handed her music at our first lesson that she hadn't had a chance to listen to yet, and she didn't even skip a beat in choreographing the dance. It's impressive. I highly recommend Alina for any couples getting married. You won't be disappointed!!

We had a wonderful first Ballroom dance class with Ms. White. Her friendly and outgoing personally allow for her to build and immediate rapport with her students. She really seems to enjoy meeting new students. We look forward to the next session.
I have been taking ballroom dance classes with Robyn over the last year and I have really enjoyed her style of teaching, especially her knowledge of the International Latin style of ballroom dancing. She is fun, kind, and so helpful in class! She stays focused on class goals, yet answers questions and gives creative ideas to each of us, personally. She always has a great attitude and I highly recommend her!
I love learning dance from NinaKshi dance studio. NinaKshi has not only made me more confident in dancing and performing in front of large crowds but my team has also become like a second family. The dances we do are from a variety of languages and genres and our steps vary from different styles of dancing. The team has come a long way from when we started and I can say proudly that when we preform it is precise and in sync with each other. People with all different types of background or even no background in dancing can benefit from NinaKshi and learn to improve/strengthen their skills.
We offer private lessons, group classes, weekly and monthly dance parties along with hosting events of all types. We have very professional certified staff that are available 7 days a week between 10am-10pm. We love sharing the world of dance with everyone of all ages and interests.
I have wanted to take dancing lessons for a long time but my husband refused. He didn't want to embarrass himself and didn't think he had any sense of rhythm. But when Gary agreed to come to our home he finally agreed to try the free lesson. That was two months ago and now we're getting lessons every week and we're both loving it! Gary's relaxed approach and great sense of humor helped my husband overcome his fears. We highly recommend Gary for dance lessons.
Fantastic. Garry is a professional who has been very helpful yet patient with our lack of prior experience. My fiancé and I have had a lot of fun with our lessons and are now very excited about our first dance. We have no reservations in recommending him to family, friends, and strangers alike.
My husband and I took our wedding dance lessons with Fabio and absolutely loved our experience! Fabio is a very knowledgeable instructor and makes the dance lessons fun and frustration free! Fabio worked with us to create a wonderful and memorable first dance that flawlessly combined our personalities and skill levels. Jennifer is fantastic and always promptly responded to all our emails and phone calls. We cannot say enough good things about Forever Dancing!
I live my Passion and my clients can see that. I started at an early age and followed my dream.
I teach ballroom dancing for all levels and age groups. I started ballroom dancing 18 years ago in Vienna, Austria (capital of social ballroom dancing). I competed internationally in formation dancing for more than eight years. I've been teaching all styles (International and American style) since 2008, and I'm certified in American style.
My fiancée and I were both very nervous about dancing at our wedding. After a couple lessons with Josh, we feel WAY more confident. We're having fun dancing together and we're building skills that we'll have forever!
