My fiancé and I had no formal dancing experience, so we were quite nervous for our first dance. Gonzalo started with the basics and helped us formulate a game plan how we would learn our first dance within our short time frame. Even with our busy schedules, Gonzalo had no issues scheduling dance lessons during our limited availability. He is a true professional that taught with patience, a sense of humor, and valued the opinions of his clients. He recorded clips of our lesson, which was an extremely helpful reference. Thanks to Gonzalo on our wedding day, we were prepared and extremely satisfied how elegantly we danced to our wedding song.

In the midst of late-stage wedding planning, the thought came out of nowhere that it might be nice to take dance lessons. I brought this up to my fiancé and his immediate reaction was negative. We were already juggling too many vendors and responsibilities, he said. Where would we find the time, he asked. I reached out to Uttara anyway and scheduled a trial first class. We met her and immediately felt at ease. She asked us what song we had in mind, and when we played it for her (it's very different than the normal first dance fare) she thought about it for a second, remarked that it was different, then told us she knew exactly what kind of dance would go with it. And off we went! At the end of the first class, my fiancé was much more optimistic and we agreed to do the five class package. After the first few classes, we couldn't wait for our next class. Neither of us had any dancing experience but Uttara was always patient with us and never laughed at our clumsy mistakes. Her upbeat and postive energy went a long way to helping us learn, and she made every class so much fun! When it came time to pull off our big dance at our wedding, we somehow pulled it off and no one could believe what we had done! My mom kept clapping her cheeks and saying it was like DWTS (it was not) and the venue coordinator told us that in her ten years there, we were the first couple to do something like that. My friends' eyes were bugging out of their heads! It was so worth it, and a memory that we will cherish for the rest of our lives, and we owe it all to Uttara!

I’ve never had any knowledge/experience in dance before I took the class with All About Dancing. Ms. Kinnunen has taken time to give me a basic understanding of different types of dance and helped me to pick one that I like/meets my needs the most. I’ve been learning Salsa with her and I would greatly recommend my friends or anyone who are passionate about dance.

Simply an Outstanding instructor. Hailing from Trinidad and Tobago my ability to have rhythm in my hips comes natural to me; however when it comes to Salsa which is brand new to me I have two left feet. Helena and her instructor collogues have made learning Salsa as a beginner as easy as 1-2-3. Though I am still learning and still get nervous the fun and encouraging atmosphere makes it easy to relax and embrace the Salsa culture. I am amazed how slowly but surely I am getting better and more confident with each class I attend. I really appreciate Helena and her efforts through Fusion Urbana. As I continue to progress I dream of one day walking into the Salsa Room ( Salsa Club) and being able to dance with any female with confidence and style. I have a good feeling that if I stay the course I will be able to accomplish this dream with the help of Helena and her staff. Thanks so much!!!!

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 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
