Personable, patient, adaptable, talented, encouraging, energetic, and knowledgable are only some of the words that describe Gonzalo. At our first meeting he made me feel so comfortable it felt like I had known him for a long time. I have always wanted to take private dance lessons but I was always discouraged thinking it would be too expensive and hard to come by. That wasn't the case at all. Gonzalo responded to my request the same day and was able to work with my budget. He is always right on time and is very friendly with my family too. If you see Latin dance lessons in your near future, don't hesitate to call on Gonzalo. There is no way you'll be disappointed.
Started taking lessons here a few weeks ago after connecting via Thumbtack. I have never danced before in my life but was always interested in exploring the art. The team is very accommodating and took the time to really understand what my goals were before we started. Its been a great experience so far and really look forward to each lesson.
My husband and I are so glad we hired Kat to help us choreograph a surprise first dance routine for our wedding. Neither of us have any dance experience to speak of, and she was very patient with us while we stumbled through what I'm sure are very basic steps. She was able to gauge our abilities and our learning strengths very well, and above all, she was really honest about what we were doing well and what we needed to fix. Our guests were SO surprised to see what we had created with Kat - and we have so much fun with the process, from our first lesson to the final "performance." Would highly recommend Kat to anyone, even those with limited to no experience!
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.
Great attitude and positive energy. Keeps sessions exciting!
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.
The studio is beautiful and everyone is welcoming and helpful to new comers. Fantastic Instructors and Owners. Love the people. They are great, professional teachers and have become wonderful friends. Go Dance Frederick!
I was amazing! Forever Dancing Ballroom is like a partner dance sanctuary, and Fabio has so much knowledge in dance... I have taken private lessons before, but it does not compare. I have just bought 10 more lessons and I am looking forward to them. I feel inspired, empowered and motivated. I am also planning on attending some of their group classes and parties. The studio is clean, spacious, charming and unique. Parking was easy and free. The staff is courteous and the instructors look like “ dancing with the stars” professional dancers. I saw some very beginner students (wedding couples learning) and some very advanced (at least they look like that for me) and they all look very happy. Fabio magically solved (at the first 10 minutes of the lesson) some issues that I have been having with my dance since I started a couple of years ago. I wish I had started my first lesson with him.
"I have made tremendous strides in a very short period of time and I am proud of my progress. I have quit smoking and drinking cold turkey. I released deep feelings of joy and sadness. I have had a consistent and reliable confidant that I can trust, gotten more organized in my business regimen and made strides in my relationship with my husband. I did it all and Deborah humbly supported me through the process. She surprised me and mailed me a gratitude journal which can be incorporated as a family tradition. She also took the time to research and send me additional holistic resources which can serve as helpful and inspiring tools for myself and others."she goes over and beyond and I am grateful for our relationship and look forward to building our relationship in the future

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.
