Phenomenal teacher!!! Very patient, kind, and thoughtful...really helped me understand how to become a better dancer. Superb!
Warren
I consider myself very fortunate that I met Stephanie some years ago. As we started working together my skills started to improve. I have long realized it takes me more time to develop than other students. After working with Stephanie, eventually I was able to start social dancing. Eventually, we also worked together on performance classes with other students. These were all wonderful experiences for me. Stephanie is very dedicated and passionate about dance. She is very attentive to detail. I highly recommend Stephanie!

I teach how to have the correct form and break down the move piece by piece, in order for it to be understood as well as open up the creativity in your mind to make more moves of your own, I as well teach my philosophy on breaking, give exercises as well as encouragement.

Hola!

Ra is so great. She is patient and really knows her stuff. Definitely flexible in scheduling and she is so great with teaching my daughter.
Arianna L.
I elected to choose an online Spanish teacher for my daughter Arianna who is nine years old - after unsuccessful locating a local Spanish speaking class/teacher. Haven't had any experience with online teachers, I asked Take Lessons to recommend a Spanish native speaker from Puerto Rico. I needed to find someone who understands and is very familiar with the pronunciation of the Latin dialect. Ra's focus is conversational language; however, she was more than willing to take on the challenge of starting from the beginning with the basics, such as the alphabet, number, months, etc. and building into conversational sentences with Arianna. She is extremely easy to interact with, soft-spoken, and processes a genuine love of teaching. My daughter looks forward to their weekly meetings while embracing her Latin roots. We are immensely pleased with Ra. We would highly recommend her without reservation. Sincerely, The Lopez Family

Ra is great!

"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!"

"My fiance and I wanted to learn a dance for our wedding. Neither of us had dance experience and had no idea what to expect. We gave Sasha our wedding song, and she put together an awesome routine! She is extremely flexible and professional. If we didn't like certain moves she would come back the next week with new ideas. I would highly recommend her if you're in a similar situation."
