    Friendly dancers, open to all levels of dancers, instructor tailored the lessons to the dancers so that all were challenged.

    Pete was thorough in his teaching and helped you progress and improve at a steady pace. He did not hold you back. Best dance teacher I have ever had.

    When we were looking for a dance studio after the one which we were attending closed, we found Gotta Dance Ohio. It was a breath of fresh air after our experience with the previous studio. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and did not force a ladder like structure to the lessons. We advanced farther in the first few months with Gotta Dance than we had in over two years at the previous studio. I would strongly recommend Pete Santorelli to anyone who is interested in learning Ballroom dancing.
