Esther - Thank you so much for your Lesson! I never imagined dancing could be so fun, but now I am looking forward to our first dance. Emma and I are much more comfortable now, and are excited that we will look like we know what we are doing!

Esther, Thank you fro our excellent dance lesson! Our dance was perfect! We even attempted a lift (following much practice) and were able to pull it off! You helped make couples dancing a joyful experience and we’re grateful! Blessings,

Hi Esther, Thank you for the terrific lesson last night. You and RJ handled it very well. That was the most comfortable that Mark has felt in attempting to learn a dance. I picked up some tips as well. We both appreciate your time, patience and knowledge of dance.

Nancy & Mark, May 2011

Esther & RJ - Now that the wedding is over we want to thank you once again for our dance lesson! We truly appreciate the time you took to show us some great moves and to help us feel comfortable about our first dance as a married couple. It was a moment we will always remember. We have attached some pictures so you can see how it went :) Thank you again!

Jenna & Bryan, July 2010

Esther & RJ - I wanted to thank you for the great dance lesson. It worked! How wonderful to be able to enjoy my son’s wedding to the fullest. You guys are the best! I might have two left feet, but you were able to get them moving in the right direction. Thank you!

Ginny, January 2010

Hi Esther! I just wanted to say thank you again for the time you took to teach us how to move so elegantly on our wedding day! We practiced many times before in our living room and would mess up at least once. On our wedding day, it couldn't have gone more smoothly!!! We both felt very confident and after were praised by many of how our dance went! When we get the time again to do something like this, we will look you up! Thanks again,

Krissy & Joe, November 2009

Dear Esther, Thank you so much for taking the time to give us dancing lessons. We were really nervous before the lessons, but you put us at ease, and took a lot of the stress out of that part of the wedding. We enclosed a few pictures of the ceremony. Thank you so much, and we would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a dance instructor. With all our thanks,

Dave & Tegan, October 2009

Besides the great music and wonderful venue, the night was made truly special by Esther's presence. Rochester is so lucky to have someone like her...great teacher and lovely person.

Jim & Deb, October 2009

Prior to our wedding, we went to Esther looking for some help. We wanted to do a "unique" dance, but weren't quite sure how to put it all together. Esther gave us some GREAT tips and our first dance was wildly successful - and two years later, still have people talking about our memorable dance!

Jennifer, August 2009

Esther, Ginny & Marco LOVED working with you for their wedding dance. Marco kept going on and on about how much more prepared they felt after working with you. He said you made them feel right at ease. Thank you for taking good care of yet another set of my super awesome wedding clients.

Heather McKay, Wedding Photographer, July 2009

My dance partner & I thoroughly enjoyed the ease with which Esther worked with us individually, patiently, and with encouragement and humor.

Marilyn, May 2008

Thanks so much for all of your help in preparing us for our first dance as husband & wife! We enjoyed our time with you so much. Everything worked out wonderfully and we really wowed the crowd! Thanks again!

Emily & Brent, June 2007

Esther - Thanks so much for the short notice lesson for Kathryn & me yesterday. You made us both feel very much at ease and your own skill is obvious – it was a delightful time. I’m sure we will meet again through “swing dance” – I look forward!

Brett, June 2007

Esther - Thank you so much for teaching Dean and me some impressive dance moves

for our wedding. Everyone loved our dance, and we both felt relaxed and enjoyed the experience. And guess what…I let him lead! Aren’t you proud? You are an excellent teacher – thank you for sharing your gifts and passion for dancing with us!
