Just wanted to update my review as I've continued working with Kay. She's wonderful! I've been super impressed with her ability to teach to adult beginners. She is very knowledgeable and I have a lot of trust in how she safely guides me through lessons. Additionally, she is excellent at communicating and teaching the nuances of each move and combination. I'm learning so much and having a blast. I would absolutely recommend Kay to my friends and family!

My 7 year old boy did online hip hop lessons with Miss Kay, she was WONDERFUL! She was kind and encouraging and my son grew in confidence and his love of dance from her encouragement and instruction. He looked forward to these classes all week, he screamed, "that was soo much fun!" frequently when we signed off. She even educated him on the four styles of hip hop and now he is eager to learn a little bit of each of them. Couldn't recommend Kay more highly. Such an all around kind and genuine person and positive influence in my son's life each week. Grateful for her.

I started taking lessons with Kay with no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I am teachable and all it took was a little patience. She came highly recommended from a friend and I am glad I followed through!

Had my first hip hop lesson yesterday and it was fun! I am not a dancer so learning more about my body is my goal here - be more flexible and just have fun!

Kay is phenomenal! Her patience and kindess is unreal. She is extremely knowledgeable and I love having her as a teacher! I walked in thinking I'd try dancing for a week and 5 months later I'm so happy!

Kay is so sweet, but knows her stuff! She keeps everything extremely professional, and easy to learn. My favorite part is that she is down to earth and not up tight like other ballroom dance instructors. Go Kay!

I love Kay!! I met her when she used to work for a Franchise! Her prices are a lot better and she is extremely patient! I feel like I get so much done, and she is not arrogant like a lot of dancers with experience.
