Katya was an amazing instructor! It was our first dance class and we were nervous and not sure what to expect, even more so because of physical distancing. However, Katya made our nerves disappear almost the minute the class started! We had a lot of fun learning the basics and feel we have a good foundation for our wedding dance. Katya was very accommodating in terms of rescheduling which was necessary because of COVID closures. We’re already talking about taking a refresher lesson before our rescheduled wedding next year! Best wedding dance lesson ever 🙂

Katya is a great instructor! We are novices, but she is very patient and helpful. We have attended several tutoring sessions with her now. Most of them private, but one with another couple. In addition to helping us (we are seniors), she also worked with my son and me to choreograph a "mother-son" dance for his wedding.

We had a fantastic time learning some dance moves from Katya! We went to gain some confidence and basic knowledge of dancing before our wedding day. By the time we left we'd had so much fun we're thinking about signing up for some regular lessons!

Just absolutely loved her and her 101 class. I've got two left feet and unlike basically every other dance class I had taken to prep for my wedding, I did not feel anxious or overwhelmed - this was actually fun and I don't think I'm going to fall flat on my face when the dance finally happens lol.

Words cannot express how amazing of an experience this was! For both my fiancee and I, who are born with two left feet, this class was the vital gateway to basic steps and turns, to feeling the rhythm of a song! We had our wedding 2 weeks ago and NAILED our first dance, all thanks to this class! Easy to follow, exceptionally talented and gifted instructor who made the time fly by!

It's such a pleasure to take a class under Katya's leadership. She explains movements, breaks them down and makes them do-able. You know you're in good hands!

Katya was fantastic. We came in with no formal dance education and learned quite a bit from the hour. Would definitely recommend.

My fiance and I took the Wedding Dance 101 Workshop with Katya and it was great! She was incredibly accommodating with rescheduling our time and set up a really effective in-person workshop in a social distancing friendly environment. It was super fun and we learned a lot, very highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn the basics of dancing (not just for weddings)!
