Paul was great! My fiancé and I went from being complete newbies to having a choreographed first dance ready for our wedding. Thanks so much!

My new husband and I desperately needed help for our first dance at our wedding. Our lessons were so much fun. I would 100% recommend to a friend. Thanks again.

Paul is incredible. We didn’t know what to expect and he exceeded all expectations. His humor and idiosyncrasies make it a fantastic experience. We may go back even after our wedding to learn other moves

Paul has been a lifesaver for me and my fiance in learning some foxtrot for our upcoming wedding day! When preparing for our big day only a few weeks away, we realized that we needed some serious help to look great on the dance floor for our first dance. I submitted a request for dance lessons late into one evening in desperation for some emergency help (and my hopes weren't very high being so last minute), and Paul responded immediately! He is thorough in teaching basic steps, and has adjusted the complexity and built on prior lessons to make us gradually learn and improve our dance skills with each lesson. He is patient with us and has a wonderful way of explaining steps and movements to make our learning the choreography so easy. We would highly recommend Paul for dance lessons, particularly for those who are looking to add some special moves for their first wedding dance!

Paul was an excellent teacher. We had quite a specific dance we wanted to do (for our wedding), and Paul was very willing to help us achieve what we were looking for. He was patient and very encouraging. We felt at ease and enjoyed the experience. Thanks very much for being our dance teacher Paul! David & Brizi
