My fiancé and I were looking to hire a dance instructor to help us put together a cool, hip-hop type of first dance for our wedding. We seriously could NOT have found someone better than Alex. Hands down.
Not only is Alex an incredible dancer himself, but he has an ability to put you at ease and make the experience of learning a new dance incredible fun. My fiancé and I definitely had different ideas of how we wanted the dance to look (I wanted the dance to have hip-hop moves, and he wanted more of a laid back look). Alex had a way of putting EXACTLY what both of us wanted together, so that we were both extremely satisfied with the look of it!
Also, neither of us are INCREDIBLE dancers (we try =)) but Alex has such amazing patience with us. He teaches moves that look professional and makes difficult moves easy to master. He also listens to what we want and always offers tips and advice, but makes certain to have the look of the dance fit what we are looking for. (We can sometimes be sticklers, but Alex has no problem rolling with it).
And maybe most importantly, Alex is SUCH a people person. He's easy to talk to, work with, and communicate with--which is always important. He's completely on the ball and really goes above and beyond with making sure we feel good and comfortable with the lessons and with the way the dance looks.
I could truly go on and on. I've taken dance classes and performed before, and worked with at least 7 different instructors, and I wouldn't have chosen anyone else to help us choreograph our wedding dance. I honestly feel so lucky we found him.
If you're looking to have a fun time learning an awesome dance and work with an instructor who can completely pick up on your needs and craft and customize things according to what works for you--Alex is your guy! If you're thinking about hiring Alex...don't hesitate, absolutely do it. You will NOT be disappointed. He's truly the best.
THANK YOU ALEX!!!!!!!!!!
