Arati was so wonderful to work with! We hired her to help us learn a few basic dance steps for our wedding since both my fiance and I have two left feet :) We only purchased the 4 pack of lessons, but she ended up choreographing our entire first dance for us! We were so pleasantly surprised at how much fun we had at each lesson and how quickly we were able to learn. Arati was great at teaching us as beginners and very patient with us as we fumbled through a few steps. Her communication was also excellent - always quick to respond and very personable! I would definitely recommend her to any couple looking for wedding dance lessons, you will not be let down. Thank you Arati!!!

Both as a team and individually, Shimkiri and Werner really inspire me to become a better dancer, and I highly recommend their services for anyone looking to grow as a dancer or to start dancing! I began taking private Latin dance lessons with Shimkiri about two years ago. I was so impressed by her passion for dancing and her enthusiasm in sharing her talent with her students! She has a great way of staying patient as I learn new steps while still pushing and challenging me enough so that I would improve as a dancer. Later on as we began training for a competition and a showcase, her husband Werner began coaching me, too. Like Shimkiri, he was so eager to share his passion with me, and his instructions were so clear even with the more difficult steps. They are a wonderful couple, and I really encourage anyone looking for dance lessons to see that for themselves!

My Dance lessons with Jes were some of the best I've ever had. She got me off my feet and showed me what West Coast Swing was all about. She was always, always professional, on time, and for a great price too. I now think of her as a good friend and I'm always excited when she comes to Texas.

In order to deal with my turning 40 mid-life crisis, I took up the Ukelele after a trip to Hawaii after I turned 39. Prior to that time I never played a string instrument (other than the Piano...which I play poorly). I have been taking lessons for about 2 months and have only the best things to say. A few quick points: 1.) You can tell Mr. Stillman appreciates teaching...being a teacher is more than just playing an instrument well 2.) while he does not have a fancy studio, he can teach you over the internet or in person in Montclair, NJ. 3.) One of the things I like is he will record the lesson we did -- so when I get home I can hear what I am supposed to be playing, (Having been born and only starting to realize that I have a decent ear for music this is very helpful to me). 3.) He is responsive, lets say you have a question while you are practicing, you can count on Mr. Stillman to get back to you via e-mail 4.) He will work with the songs you like. I got a few ukelele song books (including some cheat books). Mr. Stillman will actually take the time to arrange the music for you as part of the lesson. Also for a very reasonable price he will take the music and actually take the time to arrange the piece for you. 5.) Mr. Stillman works with what he has...what I mean here is that if you have talent in one area he will work to use that talent. In one of my lessons he said you have a decent ear and I want to use that. I appreciated that, because it allows me to advance better by using whatever talent (albeit limited I have). Teaching is not about being a robot, its about knowing your student and getting the most out of them! 6.) He makes learning enjoyable! 7.)Mr. Stillman teaches a number of string instruments. This is important because if I decide to move into a new instrument like the guitar, I have a teacher that can make that transition easier. Said another, way if I move to the guitar me nor the teacher will be starting from scratch. Two months into my lessons I am playing a number of songs, not just strumming a few chords, but also the chord melody part which makes the Ukelele sound great. Still have a long way to go, as any person who plays such an instrument knows that grabbing chords crisply takes practice. That being said this journey into taking up the Ukelele has been one of the most refreshing and relaxing things I have ever done. To be honest when I first started I would have gotten board or just given up, instead I find myself wanting to learn more; the teacher certainly has something to do with that!

Laci is enthusiastic, kind hearted, a great dance leader, and very thoughtful about my limitations and medical status. She went out of her way to make sure I knew about prenatal exercise guidelines before we started. She also was willing to customize our classes to dance moves I love! Plus, the workout was just what my body needed. Can't recommend her highly enough.

Four colleagues and I have been working with John for the past two months on an exciting project that includes dance choreography on two current pop songs. Four of the five of us have never had any formal dance training. We auditioned five dance choreographers for our project and unanimously chose John. And he has been fantastic - we definitely made the right choice. His choreography is creative and challenging, but not so complex that it's unachievable. And experiencing our progress each week under John's tutelage has been pretty incredible - we're not done and yet we've all made tremendous progress. John is very patient - he has added to our routines as we've progressed, he spends time with each of us to help us overcome hurdles, and he strives to get the best from everyone through his encouragement. He also takes us through stretching and flexibility routines, which have been extremely helpful. In addition, he's punctual to our practices and very responsive to e-mail communications. We have all thoroughly enjoyed working with John and would not hesitate to work with him again - he's been absolutely terrific!

I would recommend Barbi Powers in a heartbeat. I have taken Yoga, Dance, and Pilates with Barbi Powers. I was introduced to her through my Pilates class, where I found out how talented she was and subsequently began taking classes with her. From her outstanding dance instruction, she has taken (me) a stiff-upper bodied trip-over-my-own-feet non-dancer and transformed me into a dancer for life. I never expected to be taking ballet classes, and be able to hold my own in a professional level ballet class. Yet with Barbi's patience, creativity, presence, and high-level skill in understanding me and my body...well, she did it. Her encouragement, succinct teaching command, superb choreography skills, humor and patience are sure signs that Barbi is a terrific instructor that goes above and beyond. She has an eye for form as well, so you better watch out if you point your index fingers (only) instead of being in a true first position. Truly, I wouldn't be anywhere in dance if not for her. I wouldn't be dreaming or rather beginning the path of professional dance were it not for her push, time, and inspiration. With regards to Yoga, I couldn't help but notice how clear, professional, cat-like, delighted, and smart a yoga teacher Barbi is. She connects with people and that is awesome. I felt welcomed in her class, and felt everyone was as well. One on one, this yogi helped me so much with my practice via correcting form, providing visual images to inspire poses, and pushes me appropriately. She balanced laughter, hard-work, focus and catered it all to me. For any personal training, be it via dance, yoga, or pilates, you can't get better than that. I'm thoroughly, and constantly impressed by her many skills as a teacher of dance, yoga and Pilates.
