Came here with a friend and had a great time. We opted for one class with access afterward to the dance floor, which came out to a very reasonable $13 a person with a student discount. Dancing does not come naturally to me by any means restricted to sobriety. In spite of that, the warmth and positivity of the studio environment coupled with the steadfast encouragement of our instructors created a really fun experience for the both of us. Spending time on the dance floor after our lesson was especially fun. The regulars were all super inclusive and wasted no time asking us to dance. I will definitely be coming back here.Original recommendation
I've been taking group lessons Lindy Hop for 6 months and Balboa for 2 months (and still going) with Margie and would most definitely recommend her to everyone!! The classes are never too big, so everyone gets attention from the instructors. (And I can't wait when she starts offering Blues workshops!)Original recommendation
Margie misses nothing and breaks everything down so well and so clearly! Not only I learn how to swing dance but also learn how to be a good partner dancer! All these are a rare find in a dance instructor!
In addition, I had many injuries in the past. She even taught me how to take care of my body and have better dance posture, so I can dance many many more years to come! She is a passionate dancer and dance teacher!
The social dance event Jam'N'Blues on Friday nights that she and her team organize at Dance For 2 is great! Large dance floor, clean & comfortable environment, sufficient free parking, and even free snacks & water. I always have fun, and I met many nice people there!
Great environment, instructors are the best, truly invested in teaching you. I did the 8 weeks of beginning Lindy Hop and every time Margie, Katie, and Pavel made sure to pay attention to every student.Original recommendation
Friday nights Jam'N'Blues are excellent. Building has AC. They don't charge for H2O.
My husband and I took private lessons from Margie in the weeks leading up to our wedding. She's a great teacher and was very patient with us, seeing as though we were totally lost and needed lots of help. :) We loved learning from her. I would definitely recommend her if you're looking for someone who is fun to work with, and really knows her stuff.Original recommendation
