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!

Coastal Music Services was everything we wanted and so much more. We were running a family oriented outdoor fundraiser. Nancy knew just the music to play to keep the energy up. She ran interactive dances with the kids and was an outstanding MC. I’ve worked with many DJs and entertainers. Coastal Music Services is the gold standard. They will listen to your needs and tailor the music etc so that you get what you want for your special day. They understand people, crowds and what works at events, Oh and they came with a bubble machine and a very professional setup. Hire Coastal Music Services! I know I’ll never need to find another DJ. Nancy is the best!!!!!

Deshaun is knowledgeable and responsible at what he does. He’s so passionate about dancing. Deshaun is very professional but still someone you can talk to. Not only did Deshaun teach me how to dance but he build my self-confidence. He’s amazing person and I would love to see him go further in his dancing career.

We first met Betty when a friend of ours gifted us two free dance lessons leading up to our wedding. Betty worked with us to put together a swing dance routine for our first dance over the course of four one hour lessons. Neither of us had ever taken dance lessons before, but under Betty's guidance we learned the basics of swing and a routine that we really enjoyed and felt comfortable with. Everyone at the wedding really loved our dance, and for months afterward people were still telling us how impressed they were. We enjoyed our time with Betty so much that we have continued our lessons with her and have had fun learning new styles like hustle and cha cha. Betty is very kind and a wonderful teacher and dancer. Her passion for dance is apparent in the enthusiasm she brings to every lesson. We would highly recommend Kitchen Dancing to anyone looking to learn dance for their wedding or just for fun!

    Ian has been teaching our 7-8 year old private tap lessons for the last year. Our favorite thing about it is that Ian's talent really gives us the sense of infinite growth potential, but he still meets William at just the right level for that particular moment. Ian is very in tune with his students, and can adapt his style and curriculum until he gets the best response from his students. We also like that he is teaching some of the underlying music theory and history of tap, which William certainly wouldn't get in his normal dance classes. Ian makes a point to welcome us at every one of the Subject:Matter performances that we've gone to, which has made the whole family feel plugged into the larger Boston tap community. Ian has been easy to coordinate with and reliable, and we are looking forward to continuing to work with him!

      Mary-Sarah is my daughters Irish dance instructor. My daughter has never had instruction in dance, and I have to say that I am amazed at how far she has come, in a very short amount of time! Mary-Sarah runs a great program that makes all who are involved feel very comfortable, and the students, confident. Comunication is great between students and parents. I feel we are getting a very fair price for great instruction. I would recomend The Flying Irish dance/yoga studio to anyone. I'm thrilled to be a part of The Flying Irish Studio!

      Letriah is a great teacher! In the beggining when I first went to see her I was a bit afraid thinking that maybe I wasnt going to be able to understand because I really dont have any knoledge of reading music. Im learning each class a bit more. She is patient, very kind, easy to follow, knoledgeble and a great teacher over all.

      I started taking lessons at The Dancing Feeling about six years ago expecting to learn some dance steps and get some exercise. Little did I know that very soon my whole life would change. The instructors were wonderful; so patient and encouraging. I soon went from a couple of group classes a week to private lessons as well; a perfect mix! The more I learned the more I wanted to learn. I then started competing which allowed for not only focusing on dance at a different level but also meeting lots of new friends and the opportunity to travel. The Dancing Feeling also offers a dance party each weekend where all levels of dancers are welcome. Whether you want to attend the dance parties, take group lessons, private lessons, compete, or any/all of the above, the Dancing Feeling offers it all! The friendships, experiences, and knowledge I have gained has been invaluable!
