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!
We hired Gonzo for our first wedding dance. The lessons are fun and we are learning so much more than we thought we would. He makes me want to continue to take dance classes after the wedding!
We had such a great experience for our wedding dance. Kat choreographed it for us, mixed the songs, and made sure we could do it, all with only weeks to spare before the big day. Thank you Kat!
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.
I have wanted to take dancing lessons for a long time but my husband refused. He didn't want to embarrass himself and didn't think he had any sense of rhythm. But when Gary agreed to come to our home he finally agreed to try the free lesson. That was two months ago and now we're getting lessons every week and we're both loving it! Gary's relaxed approach and great sense of humor helped my husband overcome his fears. We highly recommend Gary for dance lessons.
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 had an amazing experience woking with Brandy to choreograph a dance with my siblings for my wedding. She was able to blend mutiple genres together. We all enjoyed the experience. She is very patient and professional!
I provide individualized instruction. I teach ballet, easy/relaxing stretching, jazz, and musical theater dance. I will work with adults or children and just for any reason and if you need to relax, improve your strength and flexibility, choreography for college auditions, unique wedding "first dances", etc.

Helena is amazing! My dad and I learned an incredible father-daughter dance one week before me and my husbands’ wedding. We had a delightful time learning the dance, and did so very efficiently with the help of Helena! She also is incredibly flexible with scheduling, and talented. Helena was a huge blessing to our family and helped make me and my husbands’ wedding so wonderful by ensuring the dance was exquisite! We Praise Jesus for the help of Helena!

I've been taking ballroom lessons with Ray for about 6 years. He's a fabulous instructor. Watching him dance is like viewing living art. In addition to time spent in class, he and some of his students gather to practice a couple of nights a month at a local ballroom, where he takes the time to dance with and coach his students. Dance students of all levels would benefit from his instruction.
I wanted to learn to dance in order to be more social and mingle. I choose BlacKatz Jam because i heard what an EXCELLENT instructor Chyna is. And she certainly is!! She's engaged and excited about teaching, knows ALL the moves, and had me dancing in real dance shoes from the very beginning. Now i go dancing at least once a week!!! Learning to dance with Chyna was the best training i could have imagined. I've now moved on from salsa to ballroom and can't wait to add that to my outings! If you really want to learn the moves, understand the music and be comfortable in your shoes, give BlacKatz a try. She really is wonderful!! Miriam Rudder
