    Private Dance Lessons (for me or my group)
    Verified Review
    Shona is a great instructor. My fiance, now my husband never danced in his life and Shona made him dance. And he was great! If I can show him before and after pictures, I don't think Shona would need a review from me. SHE MADE HIM DANCE. She is very engaging, funny, kind yet efficient. She even edited the song to a shorter version so my husband doesn't have to dance for a long time. I could not have asked for a better teacher and maybe I can make husband go back for more dancing. Learning dancing from Shona was very very fun. Thank you!

How did you get started doing this type of work?
Both Rhett and Shona have been dancing all of their lives and so their careers came quite naturally.

Professional competitive performances, Pro Am competitions and performances. Wedding and special event choreography.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We hold our own ballroom dance Showcase every year. We enjoy teaching many of our couple clients to perform.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It's difficult to know the credentials of ballroom instructors. One of the questions that you should ask is if they have ever competed professionally. Many competitive instructors have the best and most current training.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
If it is a wedding dance they should have thought about the music and have it prepared for the instructor to listen to - or at least email or text the song ideas. They should know that in the initial learning phase that they should plan one lesson a week so take a look at their schedule to see if that will fit.
