.

We used Start Dancing NYC before my wedding as my fiancee and I both wanted something a little more formal than the ""eighth-grade sway"" for our first dance. In speaking with the owner, she recommended an instructor who would be able to teach us a fun, simple dance that we could learn easily. We had a free sample lesson to see if we clicked with our instructor before signing up for a series of 4 lessons.\r\nEmily, our teacher, was great. We told her that we didn't want to memorize a ton of steps, and she really listened. She taught us a simple foxtrot with some turns and a dip - nothing showy, but polished. I loved that the lessons were private, and in our living room - a huge bonus not to try to fit in another appointment during the week. I'd highly recommend using them!

Pros: Convenience, friendly instructor

We had Julie as our instructor. We did a really neat foxtrot and then a surprise salsa number. Not only was she really fun to work with, but she knew how to teach effectively both from the lady's and man's perspectives. And she was so enthusiastic about coming up with some fun moves to make it look original. She was always on time, always professional, and just incredibly great to work with!\t

Pros: At home, truly expert teachers, very professional

.

Julie from Start Dancing was an amazing teacher! We were very busy before our wedding and it was so convenient to have her come to our apartment for dance classes. She taught us the basics and then worked wtih us to craft a dance to go with our wedding song that incorporated all of our favorite steps. Not only did it allow us to have a great first dance, but the classes themselves were really fun. I would absolutely reccomend Start Dancing to anyone!

Pros: Fun, convenient, personalized

Julie taught my wife and I a dance for our wedding song. She came to our apartment on the Upper East for 4 lessons for an hour each time (if I remember correctly). Obviously, she is an extraordinary dancer herself, and kind, patient and naturally a great teacher. I am a bona-fide mess on the dance floor but she choreographed a perfect dance for our wedding day! We recommended her to friends of ours in our building also recently married and they were fantastic for their dance. I encourage you to use Julie, it can't get any more convenient than a teacher coming to your home.

Pros: Julie is an extraordinary teacher and she comes to your apartment, how can you beat that?

Cons: none whatsoever

We contacted Start Dancing before traveling to Argentina, so that we could Tango while on our trip. We learned so much that we were able to go out and tango with the locals. We looked forward to our lesson with Erin each week and made some time to practice what we had learned. The whole experience has been terrific, and we have decided to continue with our lessons and learn a few more dances. My husband and I both feel that this is the only way we could learn to dance.

Erin, the owner of Start Dancing came to our Manhattan apartment on a schedule that was--week by week--convenient to us. She is a fun, light and highly personable dance teacher with an incredibly re-assuring and professional manner. She prepped my fiance and I for our ""First Dance"", teaching us a classic fox trot and saucy salsa in just 8 lessons. We hired her for an additional 2 more b/c we wanted to polish off our moves. For the price, this is a tremendous expereince. She made her presence in our home a delight, and we looked forward to learning new moves from her evey week. She could teach even the most sticky-footed of pedestrians how to dance like Fred & Ginger. Highly recommended!!

I accidentally stumbled on one of Erin's ads on Craig's Listand it's the best happy accident that's ever happened to me. I have been taking ballroom dancing lessons from her for 6 months now, and at this point I don't think I am ever going to stop. Her concept (quality lessons at an affordable price in the privacy of your home) was perfect for me, When I went to a large studio (I've tried several) I was always embarrassed and I never felt that I got enough attention to get better. Her one-on-one method is exactly what I needed. What I particularly like about her approach is that not only is she wonderfully knowledgable about dance techniqueshe also understands the history, the culture, and the overall context of it. As she explains all this, you get how the whole dance world comes together. Her enthusiasm, her optimism, her expertise, and her confidence-inspiring approach all come together to make the 45 minute lessons go by in a flash. And her willingness to plan dance outings for her students (to ""Mid-summer Night's Swing"" and the 92nd Street Y, for example) are a tremendous help in understanding how to transfer what's learned in lessons to ""real dance floor experiences."" The progress I am making and the knowledge I am gaining are combining to open up a whole new world to methat's interesting, enlightening, and a bunch of fun! To my best friends this Christmas I am giving gift certificates to Start Dancing!

I wanted to write a quick review for my teacher Erin. She's taught me some basic moves so I won't like a fool at upcoming weddings. The idea of in home dance lessons appealed to me since I live in Brooklyn. I was surprised by how much fun it was. The lessons were fun and upbeat. The best part is I can actually dance a little and have some good tips on how to lead. If you're a guy petrified of dancing then you should definitly check this out.

This was truly amazing! After a lifetime of feeling inhibited by dance floors at weddings and other social functions, my boyfriend gave me dance lessons as a birthday gift. It was the best present I ever received. Erin's expertise, knowledge, patience, and personality made our private dancing tutorials the best part of my week. Her style of teaching the basics, and then embellishing moves with turns and dips gave us the confidence to dance in public, to any kind of song, in a matter of 5 lessons. \r\nNot only are we looking forward to our next big event, but we now love dancing on weekends and around the house. Thanks to Start Dancing, we can't stop dancing!

this is something my husband and I have been wanting to do for a long time but because of scheduling were unable to go to a traditional studio. We've been doing it for the last 6 months and its been fantastic!

This was great! We learned our first dance in 4 lessons without having to leave our home. Our guests couldn't believe that how amazing we looked. You should definitely do this if you are getting married.

We were a little apprehensive about taking wedding dance lessons in our home but it ended up being a terrific experience. We both work odd hours so a traditional studio was out of the question. Our teacher was fantastic too - she was fun, upbeat, and very skilled in her explanations and demonstrations. And even though we don't have alot of space it was never a problem. My fiance actually enjoyed the lessons so much we're thinking about signing up for some more lessoms!
