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.

"Miss Ashley is a breath of fresh Dance Education/Instruction air. She's energetic, fun and timely. She gets to the point. My daughter is thoroughly taken with her dance education approach and minute movement dissection and correction. We are coming out of Saudi, where dance is shunned and every camp Dance instructor is a volunteer parent with time on their hands, and into refresher Tap lessons with Miss Ashley. It's like night and day, at the very least. LOL! THANK YOU for your help in filling in her egregious Tap gaps while we are on Covid Evacuation to the US. We look forward to exploring other genre lessons with you in time, where possible. Any student would be in excellent hands with you."

"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!"
