My fiance and I took some dance lessons with Vanessa for our wedding. Totally worth it! Although we could find a beat, we didn't have any other moves, so we were basically starting from zero. She was very patient with us as we gradually added spins and passes through several lessons. She listened to our concerns and also thoughtfully provided us feedback when she saw we were a little off in our routine. It was a great experience and we are hoping to come back to Vanessa to learn some other dance moves!
My fiancé and I just had our first dance lesson with Ashlyn and it went really well! We both went in there not knowing how to dance and after just one lesson we feel comfortable dancing in front of all our weddings guests. Thank you!!
Robbie has made dancing, and teaching it, her life's focus. With her you'll get a true professional who loves the music, the movement, the community, and the students. My experience with her has mostly been with salsa (reworking my basic, improving leading & connection with partner, musicality, Afro-Cuban, making on-2 more solid, spins - really everything salsa). Also with kizomba and recently bachata, where she really emphasizes "real" Dominican style. For all of these, Robbie will bring you completely up-to-date guidance: she attends boot camps, she travels across the US, Caribbean, and Europe to dance where each style is most alive, attending congresses, taking lessons from the best, and having fun with others who live and live the dance just like her. She has invested deeply. Personality-wise, I've seen her adapt group lessons seamlessly to all kinds of people - their levels and personalities. She's warm, fun, and friendly but organized and structured, with a goal: professional. In a private lesson, she is so observant that she catches the half-second things I do that mess me up. She's so solid in leading and following that she can also show me how to fix it. Mostly she loves dancing and wants you to experience that too!!
Zoe is incredible! I could never do Barre. I had tried various studios and they were all so boring! Enter Zoe's "Barre Burn" class - it is challenging, awesome and such fun! Zoe encompasses all the traits of a perfect and top tier fitness instructor - she makes the class stimulating and engaging and she brings an upbeat, positive and amazingly youthful energy to any class she instructs. Her music is top-notch, and she pays close attention to your form, so you're feeling that great muscle burn in all the right places. She ends her class with a yoga type appreciation/gratitude exercise, and I walk out of Zoe's classes feeling like I am floating on CLOUD 9. She just has that effect. I have also taken several private fitness and ballet classes with Zoe and she exudes vibrance, professionalism, high energy and fitness knowledge. She is very attuned to my needs and problem areas in my body/ technique difficulties. An overall amazing instructor for both group and private classes!
Nick and Melissa are awesome! My fiancÃ© and I hired them to teach us some moves for our first dance. They were very professional, very encouraging and supportive. They choreographed our dance perfectly for us. They cut the song to two minutes and sent us video samples/ directions when we got stuck practicing on our own. I highly recommend Nick and Melissa for dance lessons. You guys are great. Thanks again.
I took a tap dance class from Lara - my first ever tap experience and she was awesome. She is great at providing instruction and direction at every level. And, she does this with encouragement, support, and a smile on her face. She's a lot of fun, very talented, and a great teacher! I highly recommend her!
I've taken salsa lessons twice a week for the last month from Impulso Salsa and can not recommend them enough. I've learned so much and have the confidence to dance in a real world setting now. The classes are fun, informative and a great way to get exercise.
Mark is an easy going guy who is patient with my husband's and mine attempts. He is observant about what we need to work on. We are enjoying our beginning ballroom dance lessons.
Let me begin by saying, before taking dance lessons from Brittany, I had no formal prior dance instruction. In fact, I didn't even know what ballroom dancing was, or even if I could do it. I have now been taking dance lessons from Brittany for several months. Not knowing what to expect when I showed up for my first one-hour lesson or even if I would click with the teacher, Brittany put me at ease from the start. In fact, I felt so positive after the first hour, I asked if I could continue that evening into a second hour of instruction and she said, sure! Brittany is patient, passionate, personable, professional, persistent, and extremely positive in her teaching methods and styles. In fact, as a result of feeling comfortable with her, she makes me laugh sometimes in the words she uses to critque and motivate me. She has a way of critiquing something that I'm not doing well by spinning it into a motivational comment to get it right and reminding me of my "muscle memory". She is an accredited dance instructor and very knowledgeable about many ballroom dances, both as a follower and leader, to teach both men and women. She is also very sharp, has lots of personality and poise, and believes in her students as she attempts to instill her passion for dancing that she so loves. Also, the cost of her lessons are very reasonable and her schedule is flexible as she tries to work with yours. It is amazing how our paths crossed as she was exactly what I was looking for. I would not hestitate to recommend her to anyone.

I offer private lessons in multiple styles of dance customizing my lessons to my students' needs. I am also available for choreography (solos, duets, trios, group dances for drill teams and studios) as well as master classes for large groups. I was an assistant director of a competitive team for 2 years and then went on to becoming the competitive director of a national winning competitive team in Frisco. I also choreograph for local drill/dance teams and teach master classes in multiple styles of dance. I am currently a dance teacher/choreographer for Cedar Park Dance Company and Synergy dance. I truly enjoy what I do, and I'm so grateful that I get to do what I'm passionate about!
I am a professional belly dancer who's been dancing for 18 years. I have extensive training and was making a living solely on teaching and performing when I lived in West Texas. I believe that my gift is opening up women to appreciate their feminine energy and that dance can heal and transform you, as well as get you in touch with your sensuality. Belly dance is an ancient dance form with very natural movements. Anyone can learn and it's very strengthening and toning to the whole body. I teach privately and working to build up by client base to start having group classes on Saturdays.
We offer the following: * Ballroom Dance Lessons * Belly Dance Lessons * Dance Lessons * Drum Lessons * Guitar Lessons * Hip-Hop Dance Lessons * Piano Lessons * Salsa Dance Lessons * Singing Lessons * Violin Lessons * Other Music and Dance Lessons
I offer private dance technique lessons in my home studio to give the individual attention to students who miss out when they take a large-group class.
