We hired nick just DAYS before our wedding and he helped us learn a dance that was easy to remember and looked terrific. We are so thankful for his services and we had so much fun! We will definitely plan date night lessons with him in the future. Thanks again for everything!

We've never taken dance lessons before and he easily calmed our fears and within a month taught us a wedding dance that we're very excited with! Fun to work with, listens and coaches very well, we're only sorry we didn't sign up sooner!

The Ballroom Guy is all about professionalism and hard work. We texted him two weeks before our wedding with no dance history or whatsoever. On our first try out lesson we knew we trusted him and his skills. He made us look at dancing from a different angle and appreciate the details of it because that’s what makes a good dancer and a good leader, remembering every detail of the choreography and fully trusting your dance instructor. We are confident to say we can pull out some good dance moves and oh how much we love our first dance!!! We can not thank you enough for all the kindness and professionalism. You are making us stand out on our wedding day. We highly recommend the Ballroom guy. If you are looking to nail your first dance or dancing generally. HIRE HIM!!!!

Thank you so much Khadija and Adam! It was absolutely my pleasure guys! I had so much fun with you on the lessons. Each lesson you guys got better and better. The last lesson was a such a joy to watch you guys dance your routine all the way through while you were laughing and smiling! I wish you the best and I can't wait to see pictures and videos of the dance on the day of your wedding! Nick

We reached out to Nick to learn to dance for our wedding. We had very little dance experience and no idea of how to dance to the songs we had chosen (a waltz and a Turkish song with a complicated rhythm). In our first trial lesson, Nick’s talent and professionalism were immediately apparent. He made us feel comfortable, which was important because neither of us have significant dancing experience. His teaching method is patient and attentive, working with us individually during lessons, and providing constant input on form and technique — down to the smallest details. He can teach anyone to dance. He designed our routine from the bottom up, taking a genuine interest, even watching videos of Turkish dancing to incorporate certain elements. We practiced with him for about 3 months and by the end had a polished routine that we are very proud of. We genuinely enjoyed every minute of learning from Nick.

Thank you so much for your kind words. :) I'm so happy to hear that you guys enjoyed the process of the learning how to dance with me. It was an ambitious project for sure with 2 routines to difficult music but we did it! You guys showed up every time ready to try anything and you trusted me and the process. Thank you! I wish you both the best of luck on your with your dance on your wedding day! Your guests are in for quite a surprise and treat! Nick.

Nick is an amazing instructor! We never were into dance, but had to take lessons for our wedding. With Nick’s guidance, we ended up loving it and now continue the lessons after our wedding. He’s extremely versatile, patient and creative. He also takes the time to explain and break down routines to a very rudimentary level for those of us who need it!
