She. Is. Wonderful! My husband and I have such a fun time at her lessons, both dancing and enjoying her company! She is a skilled professional that will make you feel comfortable regardless of your capability. You must try her classes!
Priti was so kind and patient with us. We were very stressed because of the wedding planning but taking her class relieved some of that. Our first dance was wonderful and taking lessons with Priti made us feel more comfortable on the dance floor.
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!
We hired Gonzalo to give us dance lessons for the first dance of our wedding - it was absolutely one of the best (and most rewarding) decisions we made throughout the planning process. We contacted him only 4 weeks before the wedding with very limited options open in our schedules, and asked for 2 lessons (we have never taken dance lessons before but were on a budget and optimistic about our skills). He was incredibly responsive and accommodating - he even drove for 1hr in hurricane-like rain to make our 8pm lesson in our tiny rowhome in Baltimore, twice! Throughout the lessons, he never made us feel self-conscious or awkward, or like we were asking for the impossible (which we may have been). He was always making us laugh and the whole thing just felt fun. And, perhaps most importantly, he helped us come up with a routine that was completely us (we are not formal ballroom-dance people, our first dance song was disco/electro house). The dance itself was a huge hit, and had people clapping along and cheering by the the end. But even without the actual wedding dance, the lessons would have still been worth it - they were some of the best evenings we had together throughout wedding planning. We are so grateful to Gonzalo and would recommend him to everyone! (Especially groundlessly self-assured millenials with particular music tastes).
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.
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.

Salsa Lessons. I was nervous because I thought I couldn't dance, but I'm getting it. Everything went great and I would recommend to anyone looking for any kind of dancing lessons.
Helena is an amazing instructor. When I began working with Helena I knew the basics on how to dance. Not only did she move me above and beyond what my dancing had been, she also helped me develop my dance etiquette. Things like how to dance in a crowd, how to approach ladies to dance with, and ooohhhh . how to stay on step (which I still struggle with sometimes). I have been around the Latin dance scene for many years now. I have performed in many different places with many different teams. Ive had many different instructors, but to this day I have never had a better, more dedicated instructor than Helena Hassan. I highly recommend her for anyone wanting to learn the beauty and passion of Latin dance.
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 am not keen on exercise, but I know how importnat it is, so I look for activities I can truly enjoy so that I'll stick with it. After a demo class on Middle East dancing (belly dancing to most of us), I decided this was for me! Mary made the classes a lot of fun. There was no pressure on those of us who were not the most coordinated or graceful dancers. Everyone was supportive and encouraged others when they did something well. We all got the colorful scarves with metal dangles and felt totally ready for the sultan's harem! The music was exotic and came from many countries, and that was a nice bonus I had not really considered. Best of all, this was great exercise. I was expecting to exercise the tummy muscles, and it did not surprise me that my legs also got workout, but I did not expect to feel the exercise in my arms. It is a full-body workout. I have a broken ankle right now and am not doing ANY exercise, but I miss my dance class and am eager to get back. I can't remember ever feeling that way about an exercise class!
