    There’s a reason Bud is the best— besides his years of experience, he is a phenomenal listener and has a technique that works for everyone. My husband and I have never taken any sort of formal dance lessons, and after three lessons with Bud, we felt confident and comfortable on the dance floor. Bud’s ability to make two people with left feet look like pros for their first dance is amazing. Even my husband (who was a bit grouchy over the whole “dog and pony show”, as he put it) loved Bud and his wisecracking humor. As far as the results— we had so much fun with our first dance and looked very polished. Our friends and family couldn’t believe we’d only taken 3 lessons! I also took lessons with my father, who has Parkinson’s Disease. Bud was fantastic at identifying some of my dad’s problem areas and giving him tools to help his gait and balance; he went above and beyond to help my father with his coordination outside of dancing, and this has helped him immensely. I don’t know that too many instructors would take such a personal interest in their students to offer them advice and aid outside of the dance studio. Thank you so much!!
