Tanya is a wonderful teacher! She customized her lessons to fit your needs and we’ve made great progress after only three lessons! Looking forward to continuing!

I've never had a dance lesson before and was pretty nervous about this but Tanya made me feel comfortable and I eventually relaxed and enjoyed myself!

Thanks again!!

Tanya was terrific
She arrived on time with no glitches and was able to get music playing and class started promptly.
She worked with my 16 year old daughter Olivia who had a great time, and they made plans for what they will be focusing on in the future. Tanya is a gifted dancer, but even better, she is a great teacher too. !

Tanya is really creative with her dance moves and makes my lessons lots of fun. She is awesome. I am always excited when it's time for my dance lesson. She is AMAZING with what she does! She is funny, creative and smart. I thoroughly enjoy myself in class and more importantly, I love the progress and growth I see in my dance skill/ability.

I had a great time working with Tanya. She is engaging and creative, and her instruction was easy to follow. I am very much looking forward to my next lesson. I would highly recommend her to anyone new to and looking for instruction in dance.

Tanya has a special gift for teaching dance. She really understands all of the elements that go into a properly executed dance move, and more importantly, she really knows how to explain those elements in an approachable manner. I will definitely be purchasing additional lessons with Tanya.
