My wife and I are enjoying our 8th year of dancing at MacVittie's. We sought out dance lessons in 2003 so that we could perform a "real" dance at our wedding. We didn't want to be hanging on to each other and swaying back and forth like two kids in high school. Mr. Steven's did a great job bringing us up to speed so that we could dance a few simple, but elegant, club foxtrot steps at our reception (enough experience to look great for our wedding photos and video). We had such a good time learning the basics that we decided to continue with lessons. We would never have imagined we'd still be learning new dances and steps after all these years, but our lesson is now our weekly date night, where we get to enjoy each other's company without interruption. Mr. Steven's is patient, upbeat, and has a great sense of humor. But he also won't let you get away with mediocre effort, or give you false praise if he thinks you can do better (think friendly but firm). So, if you really want to learn traditional ballroom dancing in an informal setting, you should give MacVittie's a try. We've seen our fair share of newcomers to the studio, but never any high pressure to sign up for additional lessons. Mr. Steven's will let you pay as you go, so you can decide for yourself if you want to continue. Don't expect fancy surroundings. The studio is private (upstairs) and has a nice wood floor, but there are minimal flourishes (that would only add to higher lesson prices anyway). The parking lot is at the foot of the stairs, and is well lit so we always feel safe. So go for a few lessons for your special event and take a look at some of the other wedding couple photos on the wall. If you want to look classy and not clumsy, give this place a try.

Friendly, professional and wonderful instructors. We have been taking lessons for several years now and are happy to be learning "the correct" way. Many instructors can teach you how to dance, but the best instructors teach you the right way. This is what we have learned from Mr. Stevens and Mr. Krauss. Wonderful, private lessons.

When you visit some dance studios to take lessons, if you are new to dancing, have never danced before, or have two left feet, you can feel out of place, or unwanted. That is not the case at all with Mac Vitties Dance Studio. Mac Vitties Dance Studio can make any person with two left feet, dance like they are on Dancing With The Stars in no time flat. The instructors are very supportive, ready, willing, and able to teach you what you need to know. If you have a special engagement coming up like prom, a wedding, reunion, or anywhere else, where you would like to be the center of attention while dancing, then go here to take lessons. The instructors really work with you, individually, to help you master the skills that you want to obtain from the dance classes. The prices are competitive with similar studios. The facility has a cozy feel to it, without skimping on anything. There is ample parking, and they have convenient hours, so that you can learn to dance, when you have time in your schedule. This dance studio is well kept, clean, and you will feel safe while learning to dance. The environment is non-threatening. Unfortunately at times, dance lessons are so popular here, that it can be a little crowded, but don't let that keep you away from this dance studio!

PROS: Competitively priced. Convenient location, ample parking, wonderful lessons
CONS: Can be crowded

Absolutely wonderful place to begin dancing lessons. Go at your own pace, and follow a teacher that is ready to help you in any way you may need. Very clean environment and very busy at times. We used this service for our Wedding and it was the most romantic dance I had shared with my Fiance.
