We've only taken two classes, but so far we love it. We have every intention of continuing for months to come. You don't sign a contract, you can pay as you attend if you like...it just works really well for us.Nov 11, 2016Verified
I reserved an hour lesson for us and our wedding party, the groomsmen wouldn't go but my bridesmaids brought their husbands and we all has SO much fun! It was a great chance to relax and laugh before the wedding. If you are planning to learn a dance for your wedding I would definitely recommend taking more than one class.Aug 16, 2016Verified
Incredibly responsive and helpful! I can't tell you how many unanswered voice mails and unreturned email inquiries I had to deal with from other studios, but certainly not with Connie! She was completely on top on all the business aspects one needs go through before you can ever hit the dance floor. I have no doubt that the rest of our experience will be as positive as our introduction. I can't wait!Dec 21, 2015Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I continue to daily work on the USISTD and ISTD dance syllabus. I'm currently preparing to take my Licentiate exam in American Rhythm but currently hold with a highly commended certification Associate American Smooth, Associate American Rhythm, Associate International Latin and Associate Argentine Tango certifications. Over the last couple years I have also begun training new instructors to prepare for their exams also.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I grew up dancing with my grandparents at square dances and events. When I reached middle school age we finally had a dance studio in my hometown so I started taking Jazz dance. When I was just out of college I dated a guy who was a ballroom dance instructor and became very interested in it. I've been dancing ballroom ever since and teaching since 1993.
