My name is Lori Wells, my passion is teaching ballroom and country western dance. I have been teaching dance for over 35 years. I teach beginners, intermediate and advanced students. At this point in my life, being an empty nester, teaching dance has become my favorite hobby. Most of my clients are empty-nesters or couples that have some spare time to learn something they have always wanted to do. I have quite a few group classes and I also teach private lessons. Come and see what you've been missing and learn to dance.
Our wedding was just around the corner and we waited till the last minute to get our dance lessons in. I was thoroughly amazed when Miss Wells was able to put together a simple but elegant wedding dance for us in just three lessons. Wow,I would recommend her anytime. She also gave us the confidence we needed to get up and dance comfortably.
My husband and I started dance lessons with Lori Wells over 4 years ago. Out daughter was getting married and we wanted to be able to dance at her wedding. We have been taking lessons ever since then, enjoying both the instruction as well as the camaraderie with the other students.
The first thing I do when working with a new student is get them familiar counting music. We will start by clapping to the beat and eventually walking to the beat and before you know it they’re dancing .
I started off with Fred Astaire dance studio in the early 80s, I’ve been dancing for the last 35 years and over the course of that time I have had many many sessions training with various coaches and masters. I keep my curriculum fresh by continuing to update my syllabus with the latest style and dance moves. I’m currently taking dance lessons from the world champion swing dancer Carmen Goodman. I am a certified instructor in the bronze,silver, and gold syllabuses with Fred Astaire dance studio’s.
Yes device my lessons is $85 per lesson. I have small packages that you are able to get a discount if you buy five lessons to 10 lessons at a time.
I took a course in college of social dancing and I was hooked from then on.
I have worked with all types of students over the past 35 years. Right now I primarily work with wedding couples and couples that are interested in social dance.
I recently took a group out on Sunday night to the wild west for some practice and some fun! We had a great time, I had five or six couples in attendance. It was really nice watching them change partners and being able to dance with a variety of partners.
Honestly, I would say to stay out of your big chain studios and try to find an instructor that has some experience. Also ask the instructor if they have any introductory specials.
I like with my students have a basic idea on how much time effort and expense they’re willing to put forth learning to dance.
