Laurie did an awesome job preparing us for our first dance. She is incredibly kind and patient and made us feel completely at ease. We had a ton of fun and always looked forward to our lessons with her. We highly recommend working with Laurie if you’re considering taking lessons for your first dance.
We absolutely loved taking dance lessons with Laurie! She eliminated any fears we had about completing our first dance as newlyweds. The entire process was so enjoyable that we have talked about continuing to take dance lessons. We highly recommend Laurie at A Dance Connection.
We absolutely loved learning to dance with Laurie! We took the 3 weeks couples intro to wedding dancing class and also two hour long private classes. The 3 week couples class is such an amazing deal ($125 per couple for three whole weeks) and you learn about waltz box-step styles, dips and 3 types of turns. She made it so easy to learn and we looked forward to going after work each week! The hour long private classes we did so we could nail down our first dance choreography and fine tune our skills (turns out in bad at being a follower in ballroom dancing)- which was really worth it. Our wedding guests were surprised and totally amazed by our first dance which was to "Can't take my eyes off of you" by Frankie Vallie. Laurie made us feel so confident and our first dance ended up being my favorite moment of the night! BOOK WITH LAURIE AND YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
Laurie & Ricardo were very patient and effective teachers who helped us stun everyone with our first dance in just 5 classes. Learning our waltz was a really fun and special experience to have and we're so glad we went to Dance Connection.
I have danced with Laurie and her team of Jose Luis and Ricardo for over a decade, and it has been wonderful every step of the way. The create a positive and fun learning environment for dancers at all levels of ability (there are classes just for beginners) and folks of all genders are welcome to dance as leaders or followers. I also like the fact that partners are rotated through each class session, which allows members of couples to each build skills and then "bring them home" to their partner - mitigating the sometimes uncomfortable couple dynamics that can unfold in dance classes. There is lots of fun, humor and learning in each class, and a community forms among the dancers, offering the opportunity for new friends it you are open to it. I could not recommend Dance Connection more highly.
