The worst nightmare for a student is to be ridiculous when try to dance, well I believe that a good teacher is the one that can help you to change the way of how you see your self in the mirror! I know that I can let you change your confidence in your movement, your feeling for the music and make you enjoy music and step with your heart, not just with your mind! I have done this kind of process so many times on so many students already that's why I know that is possible and that's why this can make my dance lesson unique!

I am a competitive ballroom pro/am student and I’ve been dancing and competing for years. I had the privilege of studying ballroom dance with Rosaria. She is one of the most talented and beautiful dancers I have ever seen. What makes her an outstanding teacher, however, is her ability to teach. She knows what needs to be done step by step. Whether it’s basic technique, or styling, or even choreography, Rosaria was able to help me improve each time. She works tirelessly at finding different ways to explain the techniques she is teaching. I learned and enjoyed my dancing more with her than with any other ballroom teacher. Ever. Her professionalism, her dedication, and her artistry are one of a kind.

Deja had her first lesson with my daughter today. Deja was great. Right on time; worked with my daughter literally through the last minute of her lesson. I could hear Deja giving direction and instruction, and she was very encouraging and supportive. My daughter really liked her, and is excited about the process. (whew!). Great job!

I learned from Deja! 10 out of 10! She helped me become sharp in some movements and more feminine in others, the perfect blend! I witnessed her work with children too, she is great with people of all ages! Even when she couldn't do them all, she still helped me learn how to land my tricks! I love her! Thank you Deja!

About D

I’m Dy’Mond ( pronounced Dy’Mond), I have had a love for dance since I was 8 years old. I specialize in hip hop and freestyle and love the art of dance as you are able to create various movements and express yourself. Any form of music or beat that I hear it’s just a natural instinct to move, whether it’s tapping my feet or bopping my head.

I have danced competitively since 2009 and have been teaching since 2012. I believe that everyone has an inner dancer within and it just takes time, motivation, and dedication to get it out. I’m very patient and work at the pace of the student. Whether you want to learn basic rhythm, technique, or latest dance moves I got you. I also enjoy choreographing for retirement parties, weddings, birthdays, and other special events. Come train with me and I’ll have you feeling confident on the dance floor at

the next special event, club, dance class/team, auditions, whatever it is that you desire. I’m here to guide you!

"Da-Rell is great. He helps build confidence with children/kids.He is getting to know the person and works accordingly.Through his method ,he made my son f
eel very safe and friendly first so they can move on to dance moves. He is super sweet and i highly reccomend him! hopefully we will be able to dance like him very soon! :)"

"I was able to book incredible dance lessons with Ferlyn at the last minute for my friends who needed dance lessons for their wedding. Here is what they h
ad to say:

"We had a little over a week before our wedding and needed to figure out our first dance. We went to Ferlyn for dance lessons. In 5 sessions we had our first dance down! She helped us build confidence in our dance. She is extremely professional and helpful. She allowed us to change up some moves and suggested new moves that would improve our style. We learned a lot of new techniques with great insight. Our first dance went really well and we definitely recommend her!" - Dang & Niki

I've received glowing reviews from them about that experience ever since, and they'll be cherishing that memory forever. I will continue to recommend Ferlyn for my other friends from now on! She won't let you down!"

"Ra, is not only very patient with her students, but is also interested in making sure your goals are being met. Before we got together for rehearsal she a
sked me what I wanted to accomplish so we could structure the class around that. She has a great sense of humor so she will make you feel comfortable when taking her class!"

"I love Denise! Denise is patient and kind which is wonderful as a teacher. She creates a safe space, but she's also constructive with her criticisms and h
ow to improve. She's also nurturing which I think is an excellent quality to have as a dance teacher as she's respectful of all dancers of other levels/experience. She loves to fun during class too! I love attending class because not only do I learn how to become a better dancer, but she makes it fun too."

"Da-Rell did a great job teaching me how to dance in advance of a family wedding. I already had an instructor for ballroom dances, but needed someone to l
oosen me up for the club (rock, pop, hip-hop) dancing which represented a large part of the repertoire of the band's program at the wedding. After 5 hours of lessons I felt confident both using the moves that DaRell had taught me as well as even inventing some of my own along the way. DaRell did a great job on a difficult assignment, outside of the normal repertoire of most dance lessons."
