Love At First Dance

Katya of "Dance First Think Later" was so talented, understanding, kind and most importantly, non-judgemental!!! My husband and I realized last minute that we should probably take some dance lessons for our first dance so that we wouldn't look like two high school kids awkwardly slow dancing at a prom. We are really relieved that we had help from Katya! Our dance was fun and very "us." Katya made sure to start from basics and build on them so everything made sense and the difficulty slowly built in the routine. The routine was realistic for our dance level but also challenged us and had some really great moments for photos. One of the best things about Katya's lessons are that she records the routine at the end of each lesson on your phone so that you can watch it again and practice with a clear visual at home. Thank you, Katya!! Anyone who needs help with a first wedding dance should go to Katya! She is awesome!!!

My wife and I are beginners but we wanted to impress our family and guests with Argentine tango at our wedding. Katya was very professional: from the initial brainstorming to choreograph and finally music selection. As busy professionals, we knew that we wanted someone who came highly recommended. She was extremely patient, graceful and highly competent. It took good effort on both parties but boy did it impress my family and friends. Most importantly, it made my wife happy! I would highly recommend her to all our friends.

We truly enjoyed working with Katya. She is extremely professional but also patient and flexible. One of my favorite wedding memories was our first dance. Katya managed us to waltz without any trouble although we were under a lot of stress that day. I am very happy that we hired Katya, her positive attitude and energy helped us a lot in those stressful days before the wedding. What I liked the most about dancing lessons with her is that you don't feel bad because you don't know everything and she is so patient that even my husband learned how to lead and dance.
Katya really goes above and beyond to make sure you are going to have the best dance of your life. At our wedding we felt like main characters in Dirty Dancing movie dancing that final dance and had the time of our life.

Katya was a pleasure to work with. Anyone who can teach my (now) husband, with two left feet, how to dance deserves some kind of award! We had decided to learn to ballroom dance fairly last minute and Katya was able to work around our schedules and make sure that we knew what we were doing. Our guests were very impressed that we actually danced in classic ballroom style. I highly recommend Katya!
