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.
I will not be able to do Alina justice in this short review, but if you are in need of someone to help you with your first dance, please go see her. My fiancé and I are getting married this weekend, and of course, two weeks ago decided we should probably get dance lessons. Alina responded immediately and squeezed us in for two 90 minute sessions in back to back weekends. We were nervous as we had never done anything like this, but she put us completely at ease upon entering her studio. We picked a pretty fast paced first dance (Luther Vandross- never too much) and Alina, without hearing it beforehand choreographed an entire dance to it in our first lesson on the fly. She sent us home with a video on our phone after the first week to practice from and I was so amazed! We were dancing and we actually looked good doing it! Square steps, swing steps, and other steps I'm butchering the name of, but just enough to look like we could dance, without being too choreographed. She is really the sweetest, and the woman has moves!! If you can let her help you for even one session do it - you won't regret it. We had so much fun learning together from her we want to go back and learn more at some point to sharpen up our dance skills for other weddings we'll be attending! Thank you thank you thank you, Alina!
Gabe, as he is known, was hired to choreograph a hip hop dance for a Christian dance studio. He was the first male instructor for the dancers and they immediately liked him. He has such a welcoming and fun personality that it's impossible not to like him. When teaching even the most challenging choreography, he always makes it fun to learn (and watch if you're taking a peek). When the dance is performed it is always looks great and is very entertaining. He is a great teacher and would make a wonderful choice if you're ever in need of dance choreography. Can't say enough good things about this young man. I'm sure you'll be as satisfied and happy to know him as I am.
Robyn gave me and my fiancé private dance lessons in our home for our upcoming wedding. She taught us moves at our own pace and helped us set a foundation to continue learning partner dances together. It was a great touch that she recorded our steps before she left so that we can watch them again as we practice for our wedding! We would definitely recommend Robyn to others who want to learn ballroom dance!
Lessons were fun, personalized, and informative. "Show me how are you going to dance with me to the song." my fiance says. "Um.....". The thought of not being able to wing it in my own home was a bit unsettling, let alone in front of hundreds of family and friends. Time to find a professional. Opened thumbtack, quickly submitted request, and Jodi responded very quickly. Had a nice call, she was familiar with our song, and we both shared what we had in mind. She was very flexible with our schedule. She provided great feedback both to me and my fiance (and we listen and learn very differently.). She kept us entertained, and managed our stressful situations very well. 4 lessons later, we felt ready for the dance floor. Wedding night comes and most of our guests said how the dance was one of their favorite parts. Again, let me remind you I have 0 experience beyond high school swaying. Great job Jodi, thanks for helping make our Wedding the best day ever.
I have always ADORED reggae and dancehall music, but had never taken a dance class. I finally decided to try to find a dancehall class and discovered RaeDiant Movement in a Google search. Although I live in Woodbridge, Virginia and the classes were in Takoma Park, Maryland, I decided to give it a try and boy! ...the drive was worth it! The instructor had a sweet spirit and was very patient with me and the other students. She encouraged us through trying to catch onto the movements and made it fun and relaxing. Although I am praying that she will begin teaching a class on the Virginia side, I am grateful to have such an outlet that is still worth the drive! Dutty wine! ;-)
Raymond is one of the very best ballroom dancers in Maryland. My dance partner and I have been taking both private and group lessons from him, in 19 different types of dance, for almost 20 years. I study dance extensively, and find that he is able to answer my questions and point out where and what we need to do to improve. David Moore
I was amazing! Forever Dancing Ballroom is like a partner dance sanctuary, and Fabio has so much knowledge in dance... I have taken private lessons before, but it does not compare. I have just bought 10 more lessons and I am looking forward to them. I feel inspired, empowered and motivated. I am also planning on attending some of their group classes and parties. The studio is clean, spacious, charming and unique. Parking was easy and free. The staff is courteous and the instructors look like “ dancing with the stars” professional dancers. I saw some very beginner students (wedding couples learning) and some very advanced (at least they look like that for me) and they all look very happy. Fabio magically solved (at the first 10 minutes of the lesson) some issues that I have been having with my dance since I started a couple of years ago. I wish I had started my first lesson with him.
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 have been looking for a place to learn more about salsa and bachata steps. First, I went to a Herndon place for dancing classes and I was dissatisfied with the quality of instruction, the attention from the staff, and the fact that they wanted to talk first about money; besides, the first lesson I took, I felt I learned nothing. Then, I went to the Crown Dance Studio for my first free class. I was impressed by the instructor, Abraham Sannoh, he was friendly and encouraging, very professional. He danced with me first, taught me about the position of body, hands, feet, movement’s techniques, so many things! I was amazed! Totally different from what I “knew” or have learned before. After long time dancing, he checked out first what my level was, then we sat down, he informed me about what I needed to learn next, he asked about me, my interest in dancing, what I wanted to learn, etc. he also gave me recommendations and gave me different options to pay for the classes. I felt he really care about me and about my personal dancing goals. At the end, I found out I got almost the double of everything I was offered in the other place, more one to one classes, more group classes and more parties, a better deal compared to the other place! For a much lower price! I will take now my third class today, and I am thinking about extending the dancing classes since I now want to learn how to dance swing and tango! So far, so good! This place is great! Excellent flooring, excellent location, excellent professional instructors… I highly recommend Crown Dance Studio.
Helena is an amazing instructor. When I began working with Helena I knew the basics on how to dance. Not only did she move me above and beyond what my dancing had been, she also helped me develop my dance etiquette. Things like how to dance in a crowd, how to approach ladies to dance with, and ooohhhh . how to stay on step (which I still struggle with sometimes). I have been around the Latin dance scene for many years now. I have performed in many different places with many different teams. Ive had many different instructors, but to this day I have never had a better, more dedicated instructor than Helena Hassan. I highly recommend her for anyone wanting to learn the beauty and passion of Latin dance.
If you want to learn to dance and meet new people Arthur Murray Dance Center Silver Spring is where you want to go. I have been going there for several months and the experience continues to be delightful. The facilities are first-rate. The instructors are exceptional and caring and the whole environment is welcoming. The learning experience is comfortable in that you can go to weekly group classes and practice parties to augment your private lessons. There is also a weekly dance where you can put it all together and just have a good time. You can do as little or as much as you like. If you want a comfortable, fun place to learn to dance, join me at Arthur Murray Dance Center Silver Spring. BWP
I started dancing with denidanzco Febuary 2015. My first class was Lara's 6 count basic West Coast Swing group class. I love the group classes and Lara is a great instructor. Lara really connects with her students. I have been taking private WCS lessons and feel I have really progressed over the past year. I have also taken Salsa with David on Monday night. If you are looking for great instruction, fun group sessions, or private lessons denidanzco gets a five star recommendstion from me on all counts. Rob S
Great trainer and workout. Thanks for getting me into the program.
Lessons may be for individuals, couples, or groups. Hours and frequency are flexible. Workshops for events are also available. I teach East Coast swing, Lindy Hop, and blues dance.
I have been trained in hip-hop dance. Hip-hop is my strongest motivation in music and background. I have have been on tour with numerous artists in the past years. I have taught kids as young as 5 years old up to adults. Everyone loves a great dance routine that not only gets their heart pumping but feels the vibe of the music and can hip to the hop.
I do not have a business. I am a possible teacher looking for some work to teach hip-hop dance to people who are willing to learn.
