In the midst of late-stage wedding planning, the thought came out of nowhere that it might be nice to take dance lessons. I brought this up to my fiancé and his immediate reaction was negative. We were already juggling too many vendors and responsibilities, he said. Where would we find the time, he asked. I reached out to Uttara anyway and scheduled a trial first class. We met her and immediately felt at ease. She asked us what song we had in mind, and when we played it for her (it's very different than the normal first dance fare) she thought about it for a second, remarked that it was different, then told us she knew exactly what kind of dance would go with it. And off we went! At the end of the first class, my fiancé was much more optimistic and we agreed to do the five class package. After the first few classes, we couldn't wait for our next class. Neither of us had any dancing experience but Uttara was always patient with us and never laughed at our clumsy mistakes. Her upbeat and postive energy went a long way to helping us learn, and she made every class so much fun! When it came time to pull off our big dance at our wedding, we somehow pulled it off and no one could believe what we had done! My mom kept clapping her cheeks and saying it was like DWTS (it was not) and the venue coordinator told us that in her ten years there, we were the first couple to do something like that. My friends' eyes were bugging out of their heads! It was so worth it, and a memory that we will cherish for the rest of our lives, and we owe it all to Uttara!
Priti was kind enough to come to our home and give us dance lessons for our Wedding.
I highly recommend all engaged couples to check out Kat for their wedding dance. She created a dance for us that was perfect for our skill level. She is an incredible teacher, and made learning easy.
The brilliance of Judicita as a wedding choreographer and dance teacher is best conveyed by my husband, Andrew: I am a man who is terrified of dancing. In six weeks, Judicita took my dancing from "baby giraffe immediately after birth" to, as our wedding guests commented, "surprisingly not terrible" and "actually kind of really impressive." I did not want to jump out of a window at any point in the teaching process. Judicita was professional, empathetic, and effective both as a teacher and a choreographer. I am extremely happy with the services she provided and would recommend her in a heartbeat. I proposed to a woman of Puerto Rican/Peruvian background. She lives to dance. I was informed, lovingly and with zero wiggle room, that our first dance at the wedding would involve me doing salsa. Growing up, the blackest nightmares I ever had involved me trying and failing to dancing in front of all of my friends and family. So, choking down the terror, my then-fiancée and I contracted with Judicita to teach us (i.e. me) a choreographed 3-4 minute salsa dance. Judicita is--and I cannot stress this enough--extremely good a teaching. She has all of the normal, fundamental dance instructor skills: she's a talented dancer herself, she's very good at motion analysis and mechanics, and she's able to define and adjust choreography on the fly. But where she truly excels is her raw ability to teach. Rather than the familiar and irritating "Do this. No, like this. Point your toe more. No, like THIS. Watch me AGAIN" style of fussy instruction you get at many salsa rooms, Judicita is genuinely and patiently focused on teaching you to move. "That was great!" says Judicita with what feels like genuine excitement. "If you hold your chin a little higher the spin will be tighter, but you've really got the basic motion down!". She continually explained the "why" behind the motions, and let us learn at our own pace without getting hung up on perfection. We learned exactly what we needed for our dance. More importantly, I didn't feel like I was going to throw up from stress during lessons. I could list out many other positives: her quick and precise decisions on choreography--always listening closely to what we liked and didn't like; her flexibility in dealing with our schedule; her constant positivity and professionalism. In the end, we successfully pulled of an amazing first dance that was exactly what my bride wanted. Was I actually a born dancer? An unpolished diamond in the rough whose amazing skills were simply waiting to be discovered? A modern-day Patrick Swayze, if you will? This is what I'll keep telling myself. But the truth is, the only reason I walked out onto the floor excited, confident, and prepared, instead of nauseous and terrified, is because Judicita guided me there every step of the way. She should be teaching movie stars and professional competition dancers, instead of awkward dudes hoping to impress their partners. But thank God she does.
I have wanted to take dancing lessons for a long time but my husband refused. He didn't want to embarrass himself and didn't think he had any sense of rhythm. But when Gary agreed to come to our home he finally agreed to try the free lesson. That was two months ago and now we're getting lessons every week and we're both loving it! Gary's relaxed approach and great sense of humor helped my husband overcome his fears. We highly recommend Gary for dance lessons.
I just recently began contemporary/modern/hip hop dance lessons with Brandy and I could not have asked for a better teacher! She is knowledgeable, paitient, and highly skilled. I would definitely recommend to everyone! I learned so much in just three weeks and will continue to learn so much as we move forward
I signed up for personal salsa lessons and she's been extremely patient and knowledgeable. The curriculum she put together is tailored towards my style and there is a well-defined progression. She's easy going in her teaching style and fun to dance with. I highly recommend for lessons.
We started taking lessons 3 years ago and now dance 2 - 3 times a week. Great instruction in a fun atmosphere.
I wanted to learn to dance in order to be more social and mingle. I choose BlacKatz Jam because i heard what an EXCELLENT instructor Chyna is. And she certainly is!! She's engaged and excited about teaching, knows ALL the moves, and had me dancing in real dance shoes from the very beginning. Now i go dancing at least once a week!!! Learning to dance with Chyna was the best training i could have imagined. I've now moved on from salsa to ballroom and can't wait to add that to my outings! If you really want to learn the moves, understand the music and be comfortable in your shoes, give BlacKatz a try. She really is wonderful!! Miriam Rudder

There is a Celtic aerobic class offered twice a week called Kilkix. It blends simple Celtic movement with upbeat modern Celtic music. Come laugh, move and leap with us through the stories of the Celts.

I will travel as far as necessary, if expenses are paid and if it is to guest-teach, choreograph, or coach. I can teach on a regular basis in the DC area. I can work with figure skaters and ballroom dancers who wish to do lifts and other, more difficult elements, and/or wish to improve their ballet technique. I have been a guest teacher/choreographer for numerous ballet schools and coached figure skaters and ballroom exhibition dancers in ballet elements for competitions. I have coached at a "dance competition school" to ready the girls for their competition season. I also choreographed their ballet and lyrical routines. I can coach cheerleaders in correct form and technique. I would also be an asset to girls who wish to compete in beauty pageants. As a professional ballet dancer for 17 years, I have modeled (after retiring from ballet and while teaching ballet, yoga, and Pilates) doing "runway" in small, local trunk shows, so I can coach models who wish to gain more poise and elegance and master the "runway walk." I am currently teaching yoga and Pilates in several locations, so I can add these techniques instead of teaching ballet. I have worked with teens who need ballet/yoga/Pilates as a psychological therapy at a children's hospital. I have worked in a program through The Kennedy Center, teaching ballet as a "learning tool" in several DC public schools. In short, I enjoy, and I am excellent at teaching any level or age of student who wish to improve technically and/or artistically, has always wanted to dance ballet, and/or wants to use self-expression and a mastery of their body, as tool for gaining a better sense of peace of mind and improving their self-confidence.
