    I was looking for a way to become more social so I thought I’d try ballroom dancing. Having never taken a dance lesson in my life, I was quite sure it would be impossible to do. I have been taking lessons for about 5 month now and Terry has been an excellent teacher. He knows how to break it down so It’s easy to learn and fun. He is very organized in the way he presents the different dance elements and provides a written plan on what he will teach you in the course of lessons signed up for. He is also flexible to my schedule, making it possible for me to adjust my lessons around work & family. I’ve has the opportunity to attend some social events in the past few months and have made new friends and gained more confidence each time out. I would recommend Terry for Latin and ballroom dance lessons. Whether you are looking for social dancing, competitive dance, lessons for your wedding, or any other reason, Terry’s got a plan for it!

We went to this huge ballroom where there were around 60 to 75 couples on the floor dancing have the best time of our lives. They had circle mixers and a professional floor show and food to dye for.

After finding a teacher with the expertise your looking for, talk to them and get a feel for how they communicate. If they sound like good people, give them a try.
