Misha worked with my husband and I as we wanted a choreographed bachata dance for our wedding. I am intermediate level and my husband is a beginner level. I was nervous as we hired Misha only 10 weeks away from our wedding. But it was a success! Misha was able to teach my husband basics and give us really great dance moves. We did lessons on average once a week a couple times we missed a session and made up for it meeting up 2x in one week. Misha was very persistent in making sure we had lessons booked frequently to avoid large gaps. This was helpful for us as there were times we were just busy with work. He was flexible enough out Gg to work with our crazy schedules. I highly recommend them for private lessons especially if you are a couple who would like to perform something at your event. On my review is a photo from the photographer at our wedding. Everyone gave us compliments and said we should be on dancing with the stars🤣. Thanks Misha and Dakota! We wouldn’t have done it without you! Well worth the investment!!

It's rare to find a great and talented teacher. I hired Misha for a private dance lesson for an anniversary and he made the lesson so much fun! We learnt so much in an hour and had no prior skill whatsoever. He loves what he does and is a pro! Thank you again!!!!

Misha is the best teacher you can ask for! We booked Misha for our first dance. I always like tango and Misha did a great job choreography and teaching the moves, exactly the way I imagined my first dance. We learnt so much! Both my fiancé and I enjoyed our classes with Misha. He is very professional and supportive. We don’t have any tango experiences but he made sure it is a positive experience throughout the entire series of classes. Highly recommend Misha if you need help with your dance, you will not regret it!
