Asiya was incredible! My fiancé and I came in with no dance experience and she made us feel so confident and ready for our big day. We both would highly recommend her to anyone looking for dance lessons! Her enthusiasm makes dancing so much fun!
Asiya was nothing short of perfect. Neither my soon-to-be wife or I had any formal training, yet she was able to teach us a fully choreographed 2:30 dance in just four one hour sessions. On top of that, she taught my Mom and I, as well as my fiancée and her father, separate dances. The thing that stood out the most about Asiya is that while she was fun, happy and has a great personality, she was also firm - she didn't let us slide on errors that may otherwise have been overlooked. We made our decisions based on these reviews, and we couldn't be happier with our choice. She's a finely tuned machine that will have you ready for your big day, with plenty of great laughs along the way! Thank you Asiya!
My son and I met Asiya when we asked her to choreograph and teach us a fun Mother/Son dance that would surprise all of our wedding guests. You have to realize that we (me and my son) have two left feet and are known in the family as the two individuals who should never step foot on a dance floor. Not only did Asiya create a fantastic dance for us she was an amazing instructor and managed to teach us how to look good on the dance floor. Our guests were absolutely amazed. Our dance was a medley of 3 songs; Bruno Mars "Uptown Funk", Aerosmith "Walk This Way", and Celine Dion "Because You Loved Me". First of all, the choreography was great. She is amazingly talented at being able to create dance steps that not only align with the song but also our skill level - making us look good. Secondly, she is an amazing teacher. We loved going to class because we would always walk away with the feeling of "Wow - we didn't know we could do that!" There were obviously times that we struggled with steps but she always knew how to break it down in a way that helped us overcome those obstacles. The net result was an amazing dance that had our guests on their feet yelling and cheering as soon as the song started. Lastly, Asiya is an amazing person who started out as our dance teacher but is now also our friend. Her high energy always positive personality lights up the room and made all of our lessons fun. We were honored that Asiya came to our wedding to share our special day. I'm just sad that our lessons are over - going to miss seeing her. If you're looking for an amazing dance teacher to help you create a special memory at an upcoming event - I highly recommend Asiya and Valeo Dance. She is absolutely the best ever!
As the groom, and someone who's dance skills are no better than a nervous high school senior at prom, Asiya made our first dance fun, approachable and something I looked forward too! She coreographed an approachable routine that was a fun for us and impressed our guests. Highly recommend Asiya for both beginners and more advanced dancers.
Asiya was so great! Her energy, friendliness, and organized approach to creating our choreography made the experience fun and easy! She definitely understands and works with each individual to improve their dancing. So awesome! I'm excited to dance this routine at our wedding!
Asiya is such a fun and informative teacher! She made the process of teaching a dance for my groom and I and for my dad and I a fantastic experience! I could not recommend her a more perfect person for the job!
My fiance and I couldn't be happier with how our first dance turned out. Asiya was so accommodating and easy/fun to work with. We are so glad we decided to take dance lessons and highly recommend Asiya for ANY dance needs. She's the best!
Asiya is a dynamo! Had our music ready at the first lesson my son, Lucas, and I had for our mother/son dance. She is an amazing instructor, uses the entire hour to her clients' benefit and makes it fun! Professional, creative and personable, don't look any further for a dance instructor for your special day. We are so grateful to you, Asiya!
My partner and I had a wonderful experience with Asiya. We received 8 individualized dancing lessons for our wedding. Asiya thoughtfully listened to our desires for the dance and choreographed our dance from start to finish! The end product was amazing! She is a very talented dancer who has a true knack for teaching. Asiya is able to break down choreography into small pieces for those of us who struggle with rhythm! She was able to fine tune the dance in session when something was not working, and she was able to highlight the aspects of the dance (and our dancing styles) that were working. Asiya is a talented dancer and a talented teacher, which made our experience really fun and delightful. To top it all off she always has positive attitude and is an awesome motivator. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn dance moves for any type of event. I am confidant our wedding dance will be amazing, and it definitely could not happen without Asiya! This was the first experience I have had with learning to dance, and I was more than pleasantly surprised with the amount of fun I had and the amount I was able to learn!
Asiya was great! We were referred by another couple who also used her. Prior to meeting her we had not done any research but after our first session we knew she was legit. There are some YouTube videos of her performing that prove it. What we needed was a teacher though and she was excellent at that too. Started with the basics (which we needed) and worked our way up to a great first dance performance for our wedding in 4 sessions. Would love to keep learning other dances through her at some point as well. Thanks Asiya. We got married!
Five stars aren't enough to explain our experience with Asiya!! My fiancé and I have no previous dance experience, and after taking four classes with Asiya we are confident and so excited for our first dance next weekend! Asiya was so professional, responsive, and a pleasure to be around. I decided to schedule lessons with Asiya after reading positive reviews on the Knot, and I am soooo happy I did! Thank you thank you thank you! -Kayley and Allen
Rated a 5, should be 100 stars if I could!! We moved from Boston in June 2016. I spent MULTIPLE weekends looking for an equivalent gym in ATL with the diversity of classes and quality of fitness instructors (FYI never found it) but I stumbled across Valeo Dance (and dance is truly the only cardio one needs). BEST DECISION EVER. I started attending Valeo Dance classes weekly and LOVED them. So naturally... throughout wedding planning, I wanted to do an EPIC first dance. Seriously - everything happens for a reason. Immediately, I knew after a few classes with Asiya that SHE was the key to making our first dance fantastic and super fun. Originally we had a 3 song mix but based on Asiya's experience and recommendations, we made it a 4 song, 2.5 min. with DJ-like song transitions in between. We LOVE LOVE LOVED working with individuals who understand their craft and aren't afraid to share their opinions and expertise with us to make it even more BADASS. On our wedding day, the dance was SOOO much fun and definitely got our guests up and dancing. Truthfully I believe our wedding isn't about us, its about all our family and friends that have helped shape us to who we are. So we're so happy that our wedding party was able and willing to join us for the last part of dance. We've become great friends with Asiya and would hands down, without a doubt recommend her to anyone, anytime, anywhere. If you want to see it, feel free to watch the video (search "F+J FIrst Dance" on YT)! We weren't perfect but we had so much fun and are so happy that we did it.. YOLO. :-p
Loved working with Asiya! She makes the process so fun while learning so much!
Asyia worked with me and my wife on our first dance. Asyia was SO WONDERFUL! She had great ideas, listened to our input, and she is a joy to work with. Plus, our first dance turned out great. We are still hearing about how awesome it was. Thanks Asyia!
My fiancé and I are far from professional dancers, and knew we would need help getting ready for our first dance. Our wedding is in a week and we are doing a very simple slow dance, and just wanted to get the basics down. We took two classes with Asiya and I could not be happier! She very quickly helped us get down the basic moves and even helped us learn some fancy twists, dips, and jumps. If our budget would have allowed, I would have taken at least one more class with her to really master it - she is so great! Thank you, Asiya!
We contacted Asiya after reading reviews here and everything was absolutely true! She replied right away, discussed with us what our goal was and was very honest in terms of what we needed. She helped us pick our song out of a few options and within only 4 hours of classes, she came up with a routine that we were able to follow and looked great. It was not too difficult, but still amazing and it was easy for us to follow and still look natural. She taught us just enough detail and made it so easy for us. We never imagined it would be that easy! Thank you Asiya!!! Fani & Chris
I am not going to lie, I was dragged to this by my future wife. However, Asiya made it so easy and fun the time went by so quick and I really really enjoyed it. She tailors your dance directly to your song, so you really only go through what you need to know to get through the big day. Asiya has so much enthusiasm you can't help but get into it, even if you're a terrible dancer like me. She makes you feel very comfortable and she is an extremely talented instructor. In two lessons we got down an entire first dance routine, which seems like a lot but it was all very straight forward and we had a ton of fun doing it! Could not recommend her highly enough - it was a blast!
Asiya does an amazing job coordinating a first dance! We loved working with Asiya from the very first lesson. She is so nice and is extremely talented. She keeps the lessons moving at the perfect pace for your talent and comfort level. Even with no official dance experience, my husband and I were able to follow Asiya very easily and felt so comfortable learning the dance with her. We felt so well prepared for our first dance at the wedding and loved the final result. I would recommend Asiya for anyone looking for dance lessons for their wedding!
If you were like me looking high and low for dance lessons in Atlanta for your wedding day, look no further! Asya was a GEM to work with! Asya ensures you and your spouse leave there feeling nothing short of comfortable with your dance for your big day. She was extremely accommodating to our crazy schedule and made the lesson fun as well! I look forward to taking leisure dance lessons from her now that the wedding is behind us :)
In the heart of wedding planning, my fiancé (now husband) and I wanted to find some time for a fun activity that took our mind off the craziness of wedding planning for just us (we didn't tell any of out friends or family) and all of our work travel. We also wanted to have a fun and innovative first dance. Sooooo....we entrusted Asiya and over the course of a few months, she helped prepare us for our first dance. We can't say enough amazing things - neither of us had taken organized dance classes before and she helped make us look like we did. Plus we had a lot of fun and burned a few extra calories doing so!! When we brought her three songs we liked (a Bruno mars, a Beyoncé, and a Michael Jackson), she put them together in a way that flowed and was easy for us to practice when we weren't in the studio. We even recorded ourselves and our steps so both of us could practice outside of class! Additionally, Asiya's constant support, positive attitude, and confidence in both of us was never-ending (especially when my OCD self wanted pure perfection and my husband was more laid back). We hope that others take advantage of this special dance studio - Asiya is wonderful and is in love with dance and has fun doing it (and being there) - you can tell it's her passion. We hope you have as much fun as we did and take some time as a couple to do something like this before the big day. We are so glad we did and incredibly glad we went with Asiya and Valeo fitness!!
Highly recommend Valeo Dance Studio! My fiancè and I took dance lessons for our wedding and had little experience dancing together. The instructor, Aysia was so patient with us and is full of energy! She made each class fun and we feel so much more confident with our first dance for the wedding day!
We loved Valeo and Asiya! We were so happy to surprise everyone with a choreographed first dance and had a great time learning it! Would absolutely recommend to everyone.
5 stars aren't enough, I want to give Asiya 10! This was such an enjoyable experience for my husband and I. We both agree, the most fun we had during the wedding planning process was our lessons with Asiya. We wouldn't have done it any other way. I have formal dance experience, but my husband had none. Asiya did a great job of helping him to feel comfortable on the dance floor and even prepared us for our guest's reactions during the dance so we wouldn't get distracted. Our dance was a hit and got our reception off to a great start. Thank you Asiya!
Asyia went WAY above and beyond our expectations - highly recommend no matter what your skill level! Starting with a bride and groom who combined had zero dance lessons / experience between us, we came in expecting to learn the box step and maybe a dip or two at most. After 4 short lessons, we came out with a full 2.5 minute performance that Asyia choreographed specifically for our first dance song, complete with lifts, dips, and twirls. Can't stress enough how patient and understanding of a teacher she was, especially with students who came in afraid to step on each other toes. Would absolutely book with Asyia again for our wedding, and for any future events where we need to up our dance game!
Asiya was AMAZING!! My fiance and I didn't know the first thing about dancing and were looking for something fun and sweet for our first dance. She did just that and so much more. We are so excited to perform our first dance at our wedding next weekend. She made learning so fun and easy, I would definitely recommend dance lessons with her!!
