My wife Hana and I wish to thank you for the five wonderful dance lessons. Whereas my wife and I could never follow or lead each other (we were always doing different steps) you provided us with some fundamentals to follow. And so we will now go to dances without feeling any embarrassment or discomfort with each other for not being able to get along on the dance floor. Thanks.

Thanks to you, Ben & I were a hit!!! Our first dance to "Fly Me to the Moon" was sensational! We received so many compliments & we owe it to you! Thank you for your patience in helping us learn to dance. You made it so much fun! As soon as we get our wedding video, we'll stop by & show you! Take care & thanks again.

Singles and Couples Pay the Same Low Price
Some studios charge more for couples’ instruction but not at Beginners Only. It’s the same low price whether you’re learning by yourself or with a partner.
It was terrible, the stumbling, stepping on each other, it was embarrassing! Lucky for us that was our guests making their way to the front of the crowd to snap a picture of our first dance. We created quite a commotion with our grace and elegance. We dazzled them with our routine.
Our first dance will be remembered by all, thanks to you. You did it. Gillian and Ginger are now known as Fred and Ginger. Well not exactly but we sure did look good. I felt confident and proud to dance with my beautiful new wife. The day was perfect and the dance was the cherry on the top. A few short weeks with you was well worth our time. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
