Working with Jenny has been a great experience.

She has a wealth of knowledge in music. She was raised around music so it comes as second nature to her. Her experience definitely shows from theory to technique, structure to general perspective.

Jen's wide-ranging experience allows her to accommodate different learning styles. Even when I was unsure of which methods were most suitable for me, she was able to determine an appropriate approach. Each lesson is tailored around your preference while still maintaining steady progress towards your goals.

She's flexible, patient, communicative, and fun to work with. Her versatility has made learning piano so much easier and more exciting for me than before. I'm always looking forward to each session. I've also been able to learn about other aspects of music, as she isn't limited to piano; she's knowledgeable of other instruments and teaches dance as well.

One of my favorite things about Jen is that, even though she's easy to work with, she ensures that I've truly grasped one concept before moving to the next. It's also always great to see her play (:

Highly recommended
Matthew
Jenny is on time always. The first lesson, she had the books ready and was very professional. I am very happy with her teaching abilities.

Jenny is wonderful. She is patient and understanding, and adjusts to the student's needs. I recommend her for anyone.

Learn to dance for your wedding, social dancing, or just for a fun way to stay active! I teach several styles of Latin and Ballroom dance.

My lessons focus on connecting with your partner and being in tune with his or her movements. A proper connection makes it easy to quickly learn new steps, and to move together as naturally as possible.

For online/video lessons: You might think a partner dance would be hard to learn online; to learn to lead or follow well, it's important to have tactile feedback in order to feel the relationship between your movement and the results from your partner, and vice versa.

However, with attention to body mechanics and a focus on alignment and movement technique, you can still learn a lot online. Especially if the thought of group classes is intimidating for you, starting with online lessons can help you learn some basics at your own ...

Melissa has filled all our expectations and more! She is a great virtual teacher and it feels like she is actually there teaching you. She has been helping us with our first dance off wedding and we just completed our 5th lesson: we already have a lift, diol, multiple turns, and feel comfortable with this dance!

Eugene is a fantastic instructor! He is highly knowledgeable and skilled when teaching different styles of dance . He takes the time to learn what your hopes and goals are for dancing and then pushes you to be better than you imagined you could be.
Teri
Eugene is a shockingly talented ballroom dancer. He is a strong leader and is capable of teaching lessons with an easy, yet highly informative approach. His knowledge of ballroom technique and etiquette is extensive, but most importantly he makes it enjoyable. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had. I enjoyed dancing with him and I enjoyed learning from him. He is a valuable asset to any student, novice or expert!

Worked with Eugene several times both alone and with a partner. Standard Foxtrot, Rhythm Chacha, East Coast Swing, and Smooth Viennese Waltz, covering both technique and choreography. I am looking forward to future lessons in any dance. He is meticulous and fun! I compete Gold Bar.

In my class the focus will be to tailor the movement to your specific needs whilst sharing with you all my knowledge to help you grow and achieve your goals.
We will work on your technique as well as your artistry.
A beautiful dancer doesn't only have a strong technique but the ability to embody a character and convey a story through movements.
All my classes are open to all levels, if you are a beginner dancer we will take the time to go in details through every moves, if you are more advanced I will challenge your technique and artistry but most importantly we will have fun sharing our common passion for dance.
I teach all my classes at my home dance studio with high speed internet and with a professional mic for you to be able to hear me clearly over the music.

Sacha is an amazing teacher! She helped my daughter to learn how to connect her emotions to convey a story through her dance movements, something my daughter was lacking at first but after a couple of sessions with Sacha, my daughter became a better at it. Although my daughter has great technique, it’s important to tell a story through your movements and Sacha helped her with that. My daughter has already been to 2 different dance competitions and has won first in her category and overall. Her other teachers, friends and family were amazed when my daughter danced on stage and they noticed the change in her when she performed. She had so many compliments. I will definitely recommend Sacha and will definitely be using her again for my daughter. Thank you Sacha!
Tyler & Faith
Sacha was AMAZING! My fiancé (now husband) got us dance lessons with Sacha for Christmas, our wedding was just a couple months away and we wanted to work on our dance moves. Sacha was phenomenal and made us the perfect first dance for our big day. My husband does not know how to clap and sing, but Sacha was so good at breaking things down and explaining it, we were very blessed. We certainly felt out of her league as she is a beautiful and talented dancer, but she never made us feel that way. She was patient and cared a lot for our success! What a wonderful experience, we 10/10 recommend Sacha for any of your dance needs (and any level).

Ms. Sacha is a wonderful dance teacher. She is patient kind and very skilled. I would recommend her to anyone with young dancers.

Stephanie is an absolute pleasure to learn from. She is kind and competent and will very quickly have you at a level where you can comfortably dance on your own.

She is a genuinely nice person and takes the time to learn the way that you learn so that she can teach you in a manner best suited to the way you learn. I had so much fun in my first few lessons with Stephanie leading up to a trip where I wanted to be able to do some swing dancing with friends. On the first day I briefly outlined my objectives with her and over the next handful of lessons we achieved them all. I am so happy to I decided to move forward with Stephanie and look forward to being her student for a long time!
Erika
Stephanie is amazing. She is so sweet and patient and I highly recommend her and her class. She is very talented and knowledgeable for the advanced dancer and she also explains and demonstrates the dance steps in an easy to understand way for complete beginners like myself.

"Fun, creative, intricate, feel-good choreography is hard to find these days and so are choreographers who are able to teach this with the same ease and simplicity as Kenneth.
He makes it possible for anybody (who is willing to work) to learn almost any move or choreography no matter how difficult it may seem at first.
Plus, he makes it SUPER enjoyable and FUN!"

"A truly talented and amazing teacher!

We learned a wedding dance from Kelly and coming from a guy with two left feet, she did an awesome job guiding us through and teaching us cool choreography to make us look good! Kelly is extremely professional and takes her time understanding what you want to accomplish and teaches at a great pace where you learn while continuing to move forward. Each lesson progressed very nicely while we learned in her home studio. It was a very comfortable space and we nailed down exactly what we were aiming to do. We learned three types of dance: ballroom, tap, and a swing/bollywood hybrid. Kelly guided us through each and made sure we were comfortable and happy in the end. She even cut the three songs together for us! I would highly recommend Kelly as she has a warm heart, great attitude, and is a wonderful teacher!"
