    Laura Rose is a professional in every aspect of her classes. If you want a wonderful experience, pick her as your instructor! My son and I wanted to do a fun Mother-Son dance at his wedding, and we chose Laura to teach us based on her glowing reviews. Wow, it really paid off, too! She was an awesome instructor and very encouraging to both of us. She taught us lots of great dance steps, turns, and moves to help us create a fantastic dance! We had several family members in tears seeing our dance. The DJ complimented us, and said it was the best Mother-Son dance he had ever seen! What a terrific compliment to get! Taking these dance classes and practicing together has been the best part of the wedding experience for me. I will never forget it. And having dance lessons in a private dance studio was fantastic. Thank you so much, Laura! You’re the best!

    Laura did an amazing job of tailoring our lessons to our needs. The goal was to be comfortable dancing at a wedding and these lessons really paid off and made the reception a lot of fun. We’re looking forward to building on the foundation she’s given us. Thanks Laura!!

    “It’s obvious that Laura puts a great deal of thought and preparation into her lesson plan.” “Footwork is clearly an important element of style to Laura”. Her emphasis on this is one of the things that sets her apart from some of her contemporaries.” “She starts each lesson with a warm-up consisting of a number of footwork alternatives designed to enhance the basic step.” “The way she integrates the new footwork enhancements into a repetitive warm up exercise is a great technique and a way to pack a lot into the hour.” “During the core skill sessions, Laura carefully chooses exercises and patterns that are effective at teaching the concept of lead-follow, so important to West Coast Swing and most other dance steps. Each new pattern is demonstrated with slower music at first, then students are challenged with a quicker score for repetition.” “Laura pays close attention to and is very patient with each student, regardless of the skill level they come in with”. “If she sees that a student is not moving through a new pattern quite as quickly as others, she will intervene as either the leader or follower to make sure the student reaches the breakthrough they are seeking.” And she does this efficiently so as to not hold up the class any more than necessary”. “Finally, Laura is careful to keep the class on task, while still allowing a little fun and mischief, but definitely completing her lesson plan and providing the value that her students are looking for.” Jim Barron, Ph. D.
