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!

I’ve never had any knowledge/experience in dance before I took the class with All About Dancing. Ms. Kinnunen has taken time to give me a basic understanding of different types of dance and helped me to pick one that I like/meets my needs the most. I’ve been learning Salsa with her and I would greatly recommend my friends or anyone who are passionate about dance.

I surprised my wife with a salsa dance lesson for her birthday. Gonzo was very flexible on finding a time that worked for both of us and was very convenient to get to. It was evident by our lesson that he has a lot of experience with a variety of dance styles and experience level. We are excited to have our next lesson very soon!

    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

    I've been taking ballroom lessons with Ray for about 6 years. He's a fabulous instructor. Watching him dance is like viewing living art. In addition to time spent in class, he and some of his students gather to practice a couple of nights a month at a local ballroom, where he takes the time to dance with and coach his students. Dance students of all levels would benefit from his instruction.

    I received both salsa and bachata lessons from Helena and every lesson was outstanding. Helena is very professional and extremely helpful. My dancing has dramatically improved thanks to Helena and I would definitely recommend her to everyone, from beginners who are interested in Latin dance to very advanced dancers looking to improve. Helena is the best teacher one could ask for.

    I signed up for personal salsa lessons and she's been extremely patient and knowledgeable. The curriculum she put together is tailored towards my style and there is a well-defined progression. She's easy going in her teaching style and fun to dance with. I highly recommend for lessons.

      I will not be able to do Alina justice in this short review, but if you are in need of someone to help you with your first dance, please go see her. My fiancé and I are getting married this weekend, and of course, two weeks ago decided we should probably get dance lessons. Alina responded immediately and squeezed us in for two 90 minute sessions in back to back weekends. We were nervous as we had never done anything like this, but she put us completely at ease upon entering her studio. We picked a pretty fast paced first dance (Luther Vandross- never too much) and Alina, without hearing it beforehand choreographed an entire dance to it in our first lesson on the fly. She sent us home with a video on our phone after the first week to practice from and I was so amazed! We were dancing and we actually looked good doing it! Square steps, swing steps, and other steps I'm butchering the name of, but just enough to look like we could dance, without being too choreographed. She is really the sweetest, and the woman has moves!! If you can let her help you for even one session do it - you won't regret it. We had so much fun learning together from her we want to go back and learn more at some point to sharpen up our dance skills for other weddings we'll be attending! Thank you thank you thank you, Alina!

      I'm a dancer myself with a strong dance background trained primarily in indian classical as well as many other forms. I joined Ninakshi to get back into dancing since I had lost touch after college and I absolutely love it! Nina choreographs in such a way that she uses a mix of all dance forms and creates true art out of it. Its a fun positive atmosphere with the camaraderie of a united team. Nina is a wonderful instructor she's extremely talented and leads the team to use everyone's strengths to make everyone shine. I have never seen kids dance like the way the kids from Ninakshi dance she does a great job with the younger kids along with our older group! I would recommend this to anyone looking to learn dance with an unforgettable experience!

      My husband and I hired Robyn to teach us a choreography for a Marc Anthony song to be performed during our wedding reception in Europe. My husband is from Austria and I am from Puerto Rico so we wanted to try something different (bolero and cha-cha) instead of the traditional waltz. Robyn taught us a great choreography during 5 sessions. She was very energetic, friendly and, most of all, patient. She was also open to making changes to adjust choreography to our level. We definitely recommend Robyn for dance lessons and we are planning to rehire her for other Latin dance classes.

      My fiance and I wanted a basic dance lesson so that we somewhat knew what we were doing for our first dance at our wedding. Jody was fantastic! She knew exactly what we wanted, was a very clear instructor, and taught us enough to feel proficient but not too much to be overwhelming. With a little practice, I know we'll be ready for the big day!

        Eileen Torres was the hit of my birthday party! She drove to Baltimore on a rainy Sunday night and created magic for about 25 partygoers. The dance lessons were superb. We learned merengue, cha cha cha, and salsa. The music was excellent. She will make any gathering memorable. I recommend her with the highest praise.

        I have been looking for a place to learn more about salsa and bachata steps. First, I went to a Herndon place for dancing classes and I was dissatisfied with the quality of instruction, the attention from the staff, and the fact that they wanted to talk first about money; besides, the first lesson I took, I felt I learned nothing. Then, I went to the Crown Dance Studio for my first free class. I was impressed by the instructor, Abraham Sannoh, he was friendly and encouraging, very professional. He danced with me first, taught me about the position of body, hands, feet, movement’s techniques, so many things! I was amazed! Totally different from what I “knew” or have learned before. After long time dancing, he checked out first what my level was, then we sat down, he informed me about what I needed to learn next, he asked about me, my interest in dancing, what I wanted to learn, etc. he also gave me recommendations and gave me different options to pay for the classes. I felt he really care about me and about my personal dancing goals. At the end, I found out I got almost the double of everything I was offered in the other place, more one to one classes, more group classes and more parties, a better deal compared to the other place! For a much lower price! I will take now my third class today, and I am thinking about extending the dancing classes since I now want to learn how to dance swing and tango! So far, so good! This place is great! Excellent flooring, excellent location, excellent professional instructors… I highly recommend Crown Dance Studio.

Jennifer is fantastic and always promptly responded to all our emails and phone calls. We cannot say enough good things about Forever Dancing!

        The brilliance of Judicita as a wedding choreographer and dance teacher is best conveyed by my husband, Andrew: I am a man who is terrified of dancing. In six weeks, Judicita took my dancing from "baby giraffe immediately after birth" to, as our wedding guests commented, "surprisingly not terrible" and "actually kind of really impressive." I did not want to jump out of a window at any point in the teaching process. Judicita was professional, empathetic, and effective both as a teacher and a choreographer. I am extremely happy with the services she provided and would recommend her in a heartbeat. I proposed to a woman of Puerto Rican/Peruvian background. She lives to dance. I was informed, lovingly and with zero wiggle room, that our first dance at the wedding would involve me doing salsa. Growing up, the blackest nightmares I ever had involved me trying and failing to dancing in front of all of my friends and family. So, choking down the terror, my then-fiancée and I contracted with Judicita to teach us (i.e. me) a choreographed 3-4 minute salsa dance. Judicita is--and I cannot stress this enough--extremely good a teaching. She has all of the normal, fundamental dance instructor skills: she's a talented dancer herself, she's very good at motion analysis and mechanics, and she's able to define and adjust choreography on the fly. But where she truly excels is her raw ability to teach. Rather than the familiar and irritating "Do this. No, like this. Point your toe more. No, like THIS. Watch me AGAIN" style of fussy instruction you get at many salsa rooms, Judicita is genuinely and patiently focused on teaching you to move. "That was great!" says Judicita with what feels like genuine excitement. "If you hold your chin a little higher the spin will be tighter, but you've really got the basic motion down!". She continually explained the "why" behind the motions, and let us learn at our own pace without getting hung up on perfection. We learned exactly what we needed for our dance. More importantly, I didn't feel like I was going to throw up from stress during lessons. I could list out many other positives: her quick and precise decisions on choreography--always listening closely to what we liked and didn't like; her flexibility in dealing with our schedule; her constant positivity and professionalism. In the end, we successfully pulled of an amazing first dance that was exactly what my bride wanted. Was I actually a born dancer? An unpolished diamond in the rough whose amazing skills were simply waiting to be discovered? A modern-day Patrick Swayze, if you will? This is what I'll keep telling myself. But the truth is, the only reason I walked out onto the floor excited, confident, and prepared, instead of nauseous and terrified, is because Judicita guided me there every step of the way. She should be teaching movie stars and professional competition dancers, instead of awkward dudes hoping to impress their partners. But thank God she does.
