We had the most amazing experience with Ballroom Bliss and cannot recommend them enough for learning ballroom dance. My fiancé and I were looking for a place to brush up on some dance moves for our wedding, coming in with very different dance e...
xperience- I was a dancer for years, and he felt awkward and self conscious and had a hard time on a dance floor. He and I had tried another local dance academy out and it felt a bit out of our price range, and just not necessarily the best fit. Luckily we ended up in the care of Deb and Kira, with an affordable package that we attended with my cousin/bridesmaid and her partner!
I can hardly express in words how much fun it was to take lessons with Kira. She made my fiancé feel more comfortable on his feet than he has felt in years, and she reminded me, fittingly to let him lead!! She was so constructive and so validating, and I could feel us improving by her teaching each lesson. I felt like she noticed our strengths and was so positive in helping us improve. She was so knowledgeable, patient, accessible, and amenable, and really encouraged us to trust each other, to switch partners, to dance with her, and to find our groove in the different styles. She matched us when we were goofy and added lots of lightness and laughter to the room, while bringing us back to our goals and helping us refine each style.
We ended up learning Waltz, Rumba, and Swing, and I can't believe how excited my fiancé is to get on the dance floor later this month for our wedding. Kira and Deb are both fantastic teachers and I would beg any folks, engaged or not, to take advantage of any opportunity to learn from them!
