I enjoyed every minute of our 3 classes together. Roman helped me become more comfortable with basic dance movements, which was my goal. He is personable, thoughtful and a great dancer.

When my daughter wanted private dancing lessons to help her prepare for her drill team audition and told me she had found an instructor online via a website I'd never heard of, I was pretty dubious at first. However, the previous instructor I had lined up fell through and we were facing time constraints, so I had little choice but to give Roman a shot.

And boy were we glad we did! Roman impressed me from the very beginning. He was friendly, down to earth and had a very charming sense of humor. Not only that, but he's an excellent dancer with a lot of experience in "the real world" who knows what he's doing.

Roman was very patient with my daughter, listening to her concerns and addressing them while adding his own recommendations and expertise as to what she needed to know and work on further. Along the way, he made sure to point out the proper technique that the judges would look for. He was very thorough in drilling down to the specifics and making sure she did every move correctly, but teaching her in such a way that made it fun.

Thanks to Roman, my daughter feels much more confident and prepared heading into her auditions. We really liked Roman a lot and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to increase their skills in dance.
