My husband and I learned a really fun swing routine for our first dance at our wedding. We took lessons with Ken at Moving Image Dance Academy and he was awesome. It felt great being able to show off a bit at our wedding reception. We're really glad we did this and I would highly recommend this dance studio.

My fiance and I have been taking lessons in advance of our wedding. We opted to only take a handful of lessons, but even in that short time Ken has us moving together in a way that makes us feel reasonably confident about dancing together

I have been taking lessons with Ken for almost a year. He is talented and truly a professional in his field. I have taken lessons from other instructors before but I have learned to enhance my skills so much better since Ken has worked

BEWARE!! Ken from Moving Image Dance begins by explaining why he is the best in town and has the best prices. My fiance and I began lessons with him. I should have known something was up after the first lesson. He spent the entire time criticizing my fiance and not in a helpful constructive manner.

The second lesson was a bit better, we did learn a dance step. For the third lesson my fiance came down with a brutal cold and could barely go outside without coughing up tons of phlegm so we cancelled the lesson.

We re-scheduled a week later where at this lesson he spent almost the entire lesson making my fiance and I practice walking back and forth across the floor. He criticized myself and my fiance the entire time, and once again not in a constructive manner. We would ask questions to try to understand what we were doing wrong and he would simply say to just trust him. Then if we did something wrong he would reprimand us for not asking questions. 90 bucks to practice walking and get yelled at for an hour.

At the end of the lesson we explained that the following week we would not be able to come at our usual time and asked for alternative times. He said perhaps over the following weekend and would let us know. He did not let us know that Sunday would be acceptable until that Friday. At that point my fiance and I decided to stop lessons with him due to our disappointment with his professionalism and our financial struggles.

I'd now like to mention that his policy is to pay one lesson ahead. Thus every week we would be paying for the following weeks lesson. When we cancelled lessons with him I requested he rip up the check for the next lesson. He agreed. I have recently been notified from my bank that he cashed the check. He did not return any of my voice mails or emails until I finally tried calling him from a different number.

When I finally got him on the phone his explanation was that he cashed it because we had cancelled the lesson the week my fiance was sick. He never told us there would be a fee for canceling the lesson, especially not a 100% fee. I mentioned I could understand a small fee for the inconvenience had it been agreed upon prior, but not the entire payment. I also mentioned that when we did see him again the check we gave him was acknowledged on all fronts to cover the next weeks lesson, not to cover the prior weeks cancellation. I asked him if he was refusing to refund my money and he said there was nothing to refund. He continued arguing with me bring up many invalid points until he hung up on me.

PLEASE BEWARE OF THIS "DANCE STUDIO"!

It is not worth his fees to practice walking nor is it worth it to be stollen from. I suppose I should have put a stop on the check however I mistakenly believed he would not steal from us. I have learned my lesson. Do no make the same mistake.

My fiance and I took some lessons at Moving Image Dance Academy to learn our wedding dance. The studio was really nice and so was our teacher. He was very knowledgeable about dancing and all the details surrounding the first dance. Ken gave us great advice and made us feel really comfortable. We loved the dance he taught us and our family and friends were so impressed with our wedding day performance.

I've had a great time taking lessons at Moving Image Dance Academy near Rittenhouse Square. The dancers there are amazing and they teach all of the ballroom and latin dances with tremendous patience. Really good for beginners who are shy about learning. They'll have you dancing in no time!
