Thank you so much for this beautiful review, Elisa! I'm so happy you became my student and my friend!
I've been taking lessons on and off from Michele since 1996. She really knows how to teach her students so they understand. I really love learning to dance from her!May 4, 2018Michèle Bowles's reply

Michele is a great teacher who not only improved my dance skills, but my golf game got better with my increased flexibility as well.Apr 30, 2018Michèle Bowles's reply
I'm glad to hear your golf game has improved! Thanks for the lovely review!
Michele helped choreograph my wife and I's first wedding dance. It was an amazing process of expertise, laughter, fun and hard work. She created an amazing dance for us that we will remember forever. It was a great pleasure working with Michele and highly recommend her services to any level of dancer.Jun 4, 2018Michèle Bowles's reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?On the first lesson we will discuss what they would like to get out of their dancing. Do you want to be a good social dancer? Do you want to be a competitor? Are you getting married? When is the wedding, where is the venue, what size is the dance floor, what shoes and dress are you wearing? They begin to learn how to dance. After seeing how the student learns, I can then make an educated recommendation of how long I think it will take the student to achieve their goal!
