Dancing is a historical tradition. Ballroom dancing has been alive at social functions for centuries, and Swing and Latin are the Waltz and Foxtrot of days gone by. In recent years, social dance has proved its long lasting presence in our lives. It is in our media, our music and day to day social functions. It isn't usually taught parent-to-child so people are seeking schools where they can learn and feel more socially comfortable.

    We have had the opportunity to attend dance classes at your studio and we were fortunate enough to get Jeremy as our instructor. Our original intent was to become more gracious and knowledgeable on the dance floor so we would be more comfortable in most social situations. Our experience has been enjoyable. Jeremy has made learning to dance a fun and easy process. He is always upbeat and has a knack for picking up subtleties in our styles of learning to make everything go smoother. We would not hesitate to recommend Jeremy and your dance studio to our friends and family who would be interested in learning to dance for fun. We have achieved our goals for now and feel more confident when going to dance clubs or other events where dancing is involved. Thank You!!!

    I was skeptical about taking ballroom dance lessons. I had not taken a formal dance lesson in 20 years, I was by myself, and I did not know anyone in San Antonio. I almost didn't even make it through the door because I was nervous, and I did not know what to expect. However, before I could change my mind, Jeremy had taken my arm and started showing me around the studio. His smile and easy manner made me realize I was exactly where I was supposed to be. As a classroom teacher, I appreciated his pedagogies and methodical ways in which he presented the information to me and then allowed me time to process the information, while simultaneously building muscle memory of the technique. Ballroom dance is difficult; however, Jeremy's endless energy, amazing choreography, and knowledge of dance allows anyone to be able to learn ballroom and have fun at the same time. I would recommend Jeremy for beginners to advanced.
