A Tex-Mex family party. Lori quickly introduced her and became part of the group and gave quick lessons to the guests not familiar with Country-Western music and dancing. She then led people/couples through few dances which the guests enjoyed.Nov 30, 2015
Lori Wells is an outstanding dance teacher. She demands attention to the basics so advanced dancing can be accomplished without having to remove bad habits. Equally skilled in training both men and women, Lori stresses strong leads by the men. I would recommend Lori to anyone who wants to improve their dancing and have fun doing it.Nov 21, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I keep my prices competitive with the going rate. For me, it's not about the money I enjoy what I do,for me dancing is my hobby. I donate quite a bit of my time to seniors and teach free classes at the senior community center in Sugar Land. I also teach quite a bit at elementary schools in the surrounding areas and middle schools.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I first get my new students clapping to the beat of the music. Then walking to the beat. Timing is very important, women do not want to dance off time so I make sure my students have plenty to work on, even if it's listening to music in the car tapping their finger to the beat of the music. After I teach them to recognize the different timings, I start teaching the dances they want to learn and I start teaching from the feet up.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?prior to getting a college gymnastics scholarship I was a competitive dancer and gymnast for 11 years. In college I majored in dance and was a competitive nationally ranked gymnast. I started a training class with Fred Astaire dance studios in the early 80s. I was a top teacher in their competitions as well as winning top teacher of the year awards. Over the years, about 37, I have trained some of the top competitors as well as dance professionally,pro am and started many,many training classes for new instructors.
