Uttara is so friendly and professional. My fiancé and I had great time working with her on our wedding dance. She is able to come up with choreography for the music that we selected. The choreography is beautiful and fit the music perfectly. Glad that we made the right choice!
Personable, patient, adaptable, talented, encouraging, energetic, and knowledgable are only some of the words that describe Gonzalo. At our first meeting he made me feel so comfortable it felt like I had known him for a long time. I have always wanted to take private dance lessons but I was always discouraged thinking it would be too expensive and hard to come by. That wasn't the case at all. Gonzalo responded to my request the same day and was able to work with my budget. He is always right on time and is very friendly with my family too. If you see Latin dance lessons in your near future, don't hesitate to call on Gonzalo. There is no way you'll be disappointed.
The brilliance of Judicita as a wedding choreographer and dance teacher is best conveyed by my husband, Andrew: I am a man who is terrified of dancing. In six weeks, Judicita took my dancing from "baby giraffe immediately after birth" to, as our wedding guests commented, "surprisingly not terrible" and "actually kind of really impressive." I did not want to jump out of a window at any point in the teaching process. Judicita was professional, empathetic, and effective both as a teacher and a choreographer. I am extremely happy with the services she provided and would recommend her in a heartbeat. I proposed to a woman of Puerto Rican/Peruvian background. She lives to dance. I was informed, lovingly and with zero wiggle room, that our first dance at the wedding would involve me doing salsa. Growing up, the blackest nightmares I ever had involved me trying and failing to dancing in front of all of my friends and family. So, choking down the terror, my then-fiancée and I contracted with Judicita to teach us (i.e. me) a choreographed 3-4 minute salsa dance. Judicita is--and I cannot stress this enough--extremely good a teaching. She has all of the normal, fundamental dance instructor skills: she's a talented dancer herself, she's very good at motion analysis and mechanics, and she's able to define and adjust choreography on the fly. But where she truly excels is her raw ability to teach. Rather than the familiar and irritating "Do this. No, like this. Point your toe more. No, like THIS. Watch me AGAIN" style of fussy instruction you get at many salsa rooms, Judicita is genuinely and patiently focused on teaching you to move. "That was great!" says Judicita with what feels like genuine excitement. "If you hold your chin a little higher the spin will be tighter, but you've really got the basic motion down!". She continually explained the "why" behind the motions, and let us learn at our own pace without getting hung up on perfection. We learned exactly what we needed for our dance. More importantly, I didn't feel like I was going to throw up from stress during lessons. I could list out many other positives: her quick and precise decisions on choreography--always listening closely to what we liked and didn't like; her flexibility in dealing with our schedule; her constant positivity and professionalism. In the end, we successfully pulled of an amazing first dance that was exactly what my bride wanted. Was I actually a born dancer? An unpolished diamond in the rough whose amazing skills were simply waiting to be discovered? A modern-day Patrick Swayze, if you will? This is what I'll keep telling myself. But the truth is, the only reason I walked out onto the floor excited, confident, and prepared, instead of nauseous and terrified, is because Judicita guided me there every step of the way. She should be teaching movie stars and professional competition dancers, instead of awkward dudes hoping to impress their partners. But thank God she does.
Had loads of fun taking bachata lessons from Kat. She is a wonderful teacher. I kept her as a friend when I moved out of town, because she is also very nice and has a great sense of honor.
The teaching is excellent. She has knowledge of many dances and keeps training herself to get better. She also does a good job of trying to fit you in on a schedule that works for you. Unfortunately, parking at night is a struggle. Biggest problem is the dance floor. It is cramped, which is problematical for the big, flowing dances.
I just recently began contemporary/modern/hip hop dance lessons with Brandy and I could not have asked for a better teacher! She is knowledgeable, paitient, and highly skilled. I would definitely recommend to everyone! I learned so much in just three weeks and will continue to learn so much as we move forward
I don't know enough superlatives to describe how great Gary is. Since I've been taking lessons with him, dancing has become my passion. He is so patient despite the fact that it takes me many tries to get certain steps. I only wanted to take lessons so I would t embarrass myself on the dance floor but Gary teaches so much more than just steps. I love taking lessons from him and can't see quitting anytime soon!
I graduated in dance, arts, drama, classical ballet, folk dance and many others. I am teaching great dance skills to children and adults. Learn and have fun!
Salsa Lessons. I was nervous because I thought I couldn't dance, but I'm getting it. Everything went great and I would recommend to anyone looking for any kind of dancing lessons.
I am a fitness consultant, barre instructor, and dance teacher who travels to you to help you achieve your personal goals!
I have been teaching dance for 17 years to inner city kids. My specialty is ballet, modern, tap, hip-hop, jazz, African, and choreography.
I received both salsa and bachata lessons from Helena and every lesson was outstanding. Helena is very professional and extremely helpful. My dancing has dramatically improved thanks to Helena and I would definitely recommend her to everyone, from beginners who are interested in Latin dance to very advanced dancers looking to improve. Helena is the best teacher one could ask for.
I'm a professional dancer, a classical ballet dancer, a modern dance and Pilates instructor, a choreographer, and a curriculum development instructor.
I am a skillfully trained dancer of all genres (ballet, tap, jazz, modern, African, liturgical (praise) and hip-hop). I take pride and joy in teaching the youth, ages 3-17, and adults. I teach both private lessons and group sessions, while never forgetting to incorporate fun with my students!
I do belly dancing classes for all ages and all styles. I am willing to teach all levels and even more experienced dancers.
