Introduction: Hi my name is Bonnie, The Dance Whisperer! A lot has changed over the last couple of years for everyone, but we're starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel! Weddings have been moved but WILL happen. Vacations have been postponed but WILL be enjoyed again, and there will ALWAYS be reasons to learn to dance and own that skill. I guarantee that as your dance coach and instructor, I will get you dancing! I promise I make it easy and fun! I have over 12 years of experience and I know I can tailor a learning program specific to you and your needs. If you don't have a partner that's ok! You don't need a partner to learn how to dance. I teach singles, couples, and groups. Two left feet, you say? Well, I know how to make them two right feet. Let me make the process of learning to dance quick and painless for you. Even the most stubborn skeptics walk out of my lesson smiling and feeling good about themselves. Speaking to the happy wedding couples: Your first dance is an important moment for you. Not only is it a traditional symbol of taking your first steps in life together, but it's something you perform in front of all the special people who have supported your love. Unlike the cake, flowers, limo, and decorations, learning to dance with your life partner is an Investment. The steps you learn for your first dance will be something that you can continue to use throughout your lives. Let me make learning to dance together as fun and easy as possible for you. In addition to Social and Ballroom dance instruction, I teach Dance Therapy and Mind/Body Connection Therapy. This form of therapy can be used in many ways, but there are two ways I'd like to mention. The first way would be to use it as a talk therapy alternative. Through Movement and Dance Therapy, you will be able to heal yourself from anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, eating disorders and other mental and emotional perplexities. It is through movement that we are often able to express and "say" with our bodies the things we cannot verbalize or express through other means. The second way Movement and Dance Therapy is used, is as a physical therapy aid. Dance is a great way to help keep your mind and body young and active. I have had many physically disabled students come to me as a way to increase flexibility, balance, physical stamina, agility, circulation and even to battle against memory loss. Through movement therapy you will be able to make quick and lasting strides in your overall physical and mental health and well being. I make sure that I tailor a program to your exact wants and individual needs.

Bonnie is truly amazing! I regret not booking her earlier in our wedding planning process. As self-proclaimed uncoordinated individuals, my husband and I were quite anxious about our first dance. However, after just one session with Bonnie, in her beautiful studio, she worked her magic, making us feel confident and graceful. We wished we had more time for additional lessons because the experience was incredibly enjoyable for both of us and I think she could’ve helped us even more. Highly recommended!

We had the pleasure of working with Bonnie to prepare for our wedding first dance, and we couldn't be happier with the experience! From the very beginning, Bonnie was patient, fun, and made each lesson stress-free. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, and tailored our lessons to our individual needs and skill levels. Bonnie was an excellent teacher, breaking down each step and movement in a way that was easy to understand and execute. She was always encouraging and positive, which helped us feel confident and comfortable on the dance floor. Even when we made mistakes, Bonnie was patient and helped us work through any issues that came up. Thanks to Bonnie's expert guidance, we feel completely prepared for our first dance. ✨🕺🏻💃🏻 We would highly recommend Bonnie to anyone who’s looking for a patient, fun, and experienced dance instructor. Thank you, Bonnie, for making our first dance such a memorable and enjoyable experience!

I unfortunately did not get to use Bonnie. But what was so important to me is at the last minute I realized I was going to have to do a dance with my son and she was going to fit me in with one day notice a few times to prepare. I thought that was extremely considerate and wanted to show my appreciation by writing this about her. I appreciate your thoughtfulness to help me so quickly. Heather

Bonnie is the BEST DANCE INSTRUCTOR. We were less than 2 weeks from our wedding date and my fiance' and I decided to get some dance lessons. I was worried with such short notice we couldn't find anyone good to work with. However, Bonnie responded within 2 hours of my inquiry and met our short timeline. She worked with my fiancé and I on our first dance for our wedding and was so patient. We developed a dance schedule and a structured dance plan for us to ROCK our first dance and she even drove across town to meet with us for our private lessons! She broke down our music and edited our song for our DJ. She provided us some great choreography for an intro, some turns and a dip for our ending. Our wedding is this SAT, 08/17 and I can't wait to show off our new dance moves. We will definitely work with Bonnie again, as we would like to learn some Latin dances this fall.
