Private Dance Lessons

This was a fantastic experience. She learned about our wants and provided a course that gave us exactly that. Her approach was personal and not some cookie cutter series of lessons. I highly recommend her.

Wedding Dance Lessons

My husband and I wanted to dance at my daughters wedding. We did not know where to start. Kristan was great. She tailored our dancing to meet our needs and it was so much fun.. Our kids were really surprised and still talking. We are going to continue our dancing. Thank you Kristen you took a couple and showed them the joy of dancing..Sandy and Steve Rittenberg Amesbury

Wedding Dance Lessons

Kristen is a joy to work with, she listens to your ideas and translates them into dance-able movements! She easily adapted to our changing schedules and always give us good input when we practice. Certainly give her a change no matter your skill level if you are looking to dance your heart out!

Better than hoped for. I'm learning way more than I expected and am extremely satisfied with the lessons and her grasp of what I want from them.
