Ballroom Basics dance is a great! As they can help people with all talent-levels, my wife and I received lessons through Paul to help with our first wedding dance. As we both were horrendous dancers, Paul was able to teach us the basics and incorporate a more sophisticated style of dancing for our first dance. In total, it took us 4 dance lessons at 1 hour a piece. Paul was, most importantly, patient with us. He is a professional dancer with many accolades behind him. At times we got frustrated because were that bad but Paul incorporates his decades of expertise and teachings to make the transition flawless. Lastly, upon showing off our hard work at the wedding, we got ample compliments on how we “great dancers” we were. Thanks again, Paul!Jul 5, 2018Verified

Paul is an exceptional dance teacher. He loves what he does and it shows throughout his lessons. He arrived to the lesson 30 minutes in advance to set up his equipment. During the lesson, he was knowledgeable, patient and graceful. Our guests were impressed and learned a lot in only an hour long lesson. I would recommend Paul to everybody. We will sure use his services in our next dance party.Apr 15, 2018Verified
Paul is an amazing teacher and a generally incredible person! My boyfriend and I picked up Salsa steps so quickly under his direction. Paul is very dynamic, friendly, patient and definitely knows his ballroom dancing! We can't wait to branch out into other genres of ballroom dance with him. If you are looking to learn choreography for an event or just to learn ballroom dancing for life, Paul is your guy.Apr 11, 2018Verified
Wow! What luck we had finding Paul. He taught merengue and salsa to 80+ of my high school students today. All the students were having so much fun! He really knows how to teach...I was astonished by how quickly they picked up the steps. Paul is extremely professional and I look forward to working with him again!Dec 2, 2017Verified
