Riverdance! Lord of the Dance!...Have you ever wanted to learn how to Irish dance but couldn't find lessons near you or maybe felt intimidated to dance in front of others while you're learning?...Maybe finding the time in your busy schedule has been challenging?...I can help! : )

Lauren is THE BEST and I am so grateful I found such a gem of a dance teacher. I am a professional dancer in Los Angeles who had only taken a few Irish dance classes before I started working with Lauren online in April. With her help, I have learned SO much in only 4 months, and recently passed the first 6 Irish grade exams. She is so patient, encouraging, fun, and her online learning portal and videos are immensely helpful for learning virtually. I could not recommend her enough!

Lauren is terrific. Our daughter absolutely enjoys her classes.

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

My story - From Romeo and Juliette the soft spoken advanced dancer to Albert and Chicago, a diva in the making where an actress was born. It took Albert to unveil the talents yet undiscovered to create a real Bratt! Chicago and the 2 men, a theatrical dance choreography by Albert mesmerized the audience. There were moves that I believed I would never do and have, and dressed up in a dress only my dreams would see. Had it not been for Albert I would have never challenged myself to do different style dances to my heart’ desire with no fear!
Amelia De Micco
Albert is a phenomenal teacher. I have taken many group lessons with him in Montreal where Argentine tango was taught. The precision of the dance moves and the care shown for every student was amazing. Also, the choreographies were one of a kind. In Argentine Tango there is one particular move where the lady lifts her body mid air to cross both legs while the man is assisting her in this move - Amelia’s move was the nickname - for a reason. For all the practice in the world, I couldn’t get this move if you paid me. Not only did Albert reinforce that ‘I WILL DO IT’, he gave me the technique, love and care to make me continue to persevere, For the students that had mastered the move, his care for all students allowed the group to cheer me on where Amelia’s move nickname was born. The men in our group assisted me greatly and the ladies gave pointers that worked for them. After all, we were one family. When the date of the showcase arrived, the formation was a great success! Not a glitch in sight from anyone of us, all smiles and for me the feeling of having climbed Mount Everest. I will always cherish the great teachings I received from Albert and the beautiful picture taken of this signature move. Not only Albert commands a room in a spectacular way, for his students dare to dream the impossible dream. For Albert nothing in ever impossible to achieve only possibilities not yet explored.
Estelle
It took me a while to work up the courage to enroll in dance classes without a partner. Albert made me feel comfortable and at ease right away. He is a very gifted teacher who has a way of breaking down the steps to make it easy and fun and yet he is very detail oriented and professional. He is always very encouraging and so much fun to be around.

"Jenny to the Rescue!

My daughter's wedding was weeks away, and I had never been able to dance a step. For that important occasion, however, I wanted to be able to at least survive a little waltz. My daughter and I selected a short piece, connected with Jenny, and she took it from there. In three lessons, she taught us the basics, provided some great pointers, a little choreography, and even taught us a few impressive moves to throw into the mix. The results exceeded everyone's expectations, and brought not only resounding applause at the reception, but also sentimental tears to many eyes. With Jenny's help, I came further in dancing than ever before in such short time in any subject.

An extremely patient, caring, and capable instructor, Jenny always listens carefully to your questions and ideas. Then, it's fascinating to watch her pause a moment, process the issue, and come back with a solution that's exactly right. Without her, a great moment and memory for my daughter and me might never have happened."
