    My husband and I worked with Steve to put together our first wedding dance. We came in with the song we wanted but had no guidance for him other than...."We want to spin". He listed to the song a few times and then said "I have it". Within an hour we had learned the basic moves we needed and the next few classes polished them up until we looked like professionals. Everyone told us how amazing our dance was and wanted to know how many years we had been dancing. Lol. Steve made us look good in just a few weeks. Also, his home studio was beautiful and very convenient for us to get to.
    I highly recommend Dance Baytown!

    As very inexperienced dancers my husband and I were unsure about how dance lessons would go. To our delight, everything with Steve was wonderful! Steve made us feel at ease. His professional and friendly approach helped us relax and have a wonderful time. We look forward to many more lessons.

    I've taken Beginner Salsa group classes and still couldn't dance at a salsa social. I decided to take private lessons so I can get pass the learning curve and start enjoying dancing. After one hour with Steve I realized why people say you learn 5 times faster in a private session than a group class. Really, an hour with Steve is what was covered over 4 classes (2 hours each) in group lessons. That's 8 times more effective!

    Steve is a very good instructor. We have enjoyed the classes and have learned a lot about the Texas two step.
    All of our objectives were met within the time frame we requested. Steve is patient and understanding and gives you the confidence needed to learn the dance.
    We recommend Steve if you want an effective instructor.

    I started out having no dance experience, like zero from growing up in a conservative household. I wanted to learn how to dance due to the social aspect of it especially in Houston. Steve is a great instructor and he puts a very systematic approach towards learning dancing, which makes it very easy to understand and follow.

    Also, his studio is very nice so you don't have to feel like you're being watched by other people constantly like in a club.

    I loved how detailed Steve was ! We sent him a YouTube video of what we were looking for and he came up with a routine for our first dance at our wedding. He showed us the steps and compared it to things we could relate to which made it so easy for us to remember ! I will definitely go back to Steve for another type of dance!

    We just had our first dance lesson. Steve was great at explaining all of the moves. We can't wait until next week for our next private lesson. Finally a dance instructor that explain and show your how to dance properly. I've been married for 8 years and have always wanted to dance. I finally understand the concept. Thanks Steve!
