My husband and went to Miss G because we were looking for someone to choreograph our first dance together at our wedding. We wanted something different and upbeat, and Miss G choreographed the perfect dance for us! She is a wonderful teacher, she's very patient (we never took dance lessons before and she walked us through every step!), and we had a wonderful time! I would highly recommend her! We have no regrets getting lessons from Miss G. She made it so fun!
