Betty was truly wonderful, and made the first dance for our wedding PERFECT! She was extremely responsive from the beginning, and offered us much more affordable prices compared to other vendors we had looked at. She helped us choose a song when we were completely at loss, and then spent time BEFORE we even met her/started lessons thinking about a routine and how to teach it in just 4 lessons. She wrote down notes for us. She was patient and kind; we were beginners but she broke down the steps to each move very carefully and thoughtfully. She allowed us to have our own style, and when we last minute decided we wanted to do some dips and lifts, she found a way to incorporate them in as well. Our first dance was flawless, thanks to Betty. She had a great attitude consistently and was just so fun to be around. We are planning to go back in the future just to learn some more steps. Highly recommend!!!

My husband and I had a blast working with Betty. In 5 lessons, we learned a choreographed dance for our wedding and it was a hit! We had so much fun learning the dance moves and Betty is a great teacher. I would recommend her to any couple. Her pricing can’t be beat, either!

Betty was an absolute pleasure to work with. Wedding planning was very stressful but we definitely agreed that taking lessons with Betty was one of the best decisions we made through the whole process. While we were nervous at first, we quickly found the dance lessons to be a needed fun time that allowed us to block everything out and just re-connect as a couple. Would highly recommend to other couples.

Betty was great to work with! She customized our dance to both our song and to our ability levels. One of us had more experience skill dancing and the other was a beginner with no rhythm. Betty was patient and supportive in teaching us both the dance. Most importantly, the dance at our wedding was perfect and we got a lot of compliments. Thank you, Betty!

Betty was so wonderful to work with! My husband and I were novice dancers and our wedding guests were so surprised and delighted by our choreographed wedding dance. We received so many compliments and so many people told us it was a highlight of the day for them. Betty was so accommodating and easy to work with 10/10 recommend!
