We had a great experience taking dance lessons for our first dance at our wedding. Our goal was to be comfortable, polished, and happy--and the lessons certainly met and exceeded our expectations. Our guests loved our dance and said we looked great on the dance floor! We learned about eight different steps to incorporate into our first dance over the five classes. In addition to the dance, Karen also helped us with many aspects of our big day. She is incredibly sweet, warm, approachable, and caring. The classes are small enough where you get personal attention. They were also a fantastic value. We had so much fun that we look forward to taking other dance classes at Karen's studio.

My husband (at that time fiancé) and I recently took classes with Karen to prepare for our wedding first dance. We also had one session with our parents to prepare for the parent dances. Karen is wonderful! She is an excellent teacher... warm, kind, patient, and very experienced. She was very flexible with scheduling as well as in helping us create a dance routine that was a good fit for us. We learned so much in a short period of time. The studio is beautiful. At some point I would like for us to take more lessons with Karen, just for fun. I would definitely recommend Karen's Ballroom Dance Studio.

We first found Karen through a Groupon deal and signed up for 5 group lessons. We enjoyed working with Karen that we signed up for more after. We also worked with Karen to choreograph a very special 1st dance for our wedding.
Karen’s personality is warm and welcoming. She’s one of those people that when you meet her, you feel like you’ve known forever. She’s kind, patient and makes everyone feel comfortable even if they’ve never taken any formal dance lessons in their life. Her studio is beautiful, spacious. Karen almost always offers you a bottle of water when you come in for class and has candy/snacks in her waiting area.
Karen’s prices are reasonable and you really do get so much for your money there. We were watching our budget closely and Karen’s rates made it possible for us to learn our special dance.
For our first dance, we decided to learn the dance from “Dirty Dancing.” Karen explained it was a “Mambo” which my husband had never danced in his life! Karen was encouraging and optimistic and believed we could do it even before we believed it ourselves! She first made sure that we were comfortable with the basic steps of the Mambo and then, taught us pieces of the dance each week. She went above and beyond by creating something that looked nearly identical to the movie, yet kept the steps at a level that we could perform well. She listened to and incorporated our ideas too. The dance was a huge hit! It’s the first thing people talk about when they bring up our wedding!
Now that our wedding is over, my husband bought us a gift certificate to take more lessons! We want to feel comfortable doing some “casual social dances.” Karen teaches a slow, “lounge type” dance. It’s very simple and easy to learn, but somehow still looks impressive. We also want to learn some faster dances that we can do to current music without looking rehearsed. Karen teaches everything from casual social dances to the more formal ones. Karen’s studio is great!

Karen was a fantastic teacher. My fiancee/husband now had a great time and was surprised at how much he enjoyed it. For our wedding day though, things didn't go as planned because we both had jackets on and our arms couldn't go over our heads for the spins. So advice to couples have the groom take off his jacket and don't keep your cardigan on! haha.

Karen is an amazing dance instructor. She definitely knows how to handle uneasy students, has tons of patience, is fun loving and an absolute joy to work with. We gave Karen just two weeks to help us get prepared for our first wedding dance. She totally opened her calendar and worked with our crazy schedules. What was first a scary venture for both of us turned out fun and quite intimate... and we did absolutely wonderful with at our wedding. We heard our first song a few day ago in the car and it brought us both back that that amazing moment. Thank you Karen for creating such magic for us. :)

My father does ballroom dancing with my mother, and for my wedding he wanted to ballroom dance with me. I do not dance- at all! Karen was kind, patient and made ballroom dancing seem easy. She choreographed a beautiful father-daughter waltz that was easy enough for me to learn and special enough that our guests clapped at many of the steps we did. I highly recommend working with Karen if you want to do a special and memorable dance on your wedding day!

My husband thought dancing lessons would be a good idea. He was right. I have been dancing for many years but only by myself (ballet), not with other people. Turns out I needed a lesson in letting go of control. Karen was so patients and taught us really useful dances not only for our wedding but to use as guests at other people's events. Just having the confidence on the dance floor let the first dance be something of a joy instead of a dread.

We signed up for the wedding group dancing class and private dance lessons. Overall the dancing lessons were a good review before our wedding. We found the private lessons to be much more helpful as we focussed on our specific wedding songs in a one on one setting. The group wedding lesson was also good but none of the dances tought (wedding/ lounge dance, fox trot) were ones we planned to dance (rhumba and swing). All teachers were very good.

I can't say enough about how wonderful my experience with Karen's Ballroom was! My husband and I learned our first dance (two different dances because I couldn't decide on a song, and Karen was so patient and helpful!) My father and I also did a few lessons to perfect our dance, as well as my husband and his mother!
We had a fantastic and positive experience & our dances were perfect on our big day!!

We are beyond happy that we found Karen. My husband and I knew we needed dance lessons if we were going to be to pull off any sort of dance at our wedding. And with Karen's guidance and patience we did! Karen is so easy to work with. We started off in group lessons and then as it got closer to the wedding we switched over to private. Karen is an amazing teacher and made it her mission to help us be successful. We would recommend her to anyone.

My parents have been taking lessons from Karen for quite a qhile with some friends as they just love it. My husband and I took dance lessons before our wedding with Karen and we also loved it. The lessons were fun, flexible, and we learned a lot. She caters to your style, your dancing skills, and what you are envisioning for your big day. My dad and I also took lessons with Karen and we were able to put something together to make our dance a bit more special. I would recommend taking lessons from Karen whether or not you are planning on doing a ballroom dance at your wedding! It's fun, enjoyable, and you'll learn some new things along the way!

Taking dance lessons with Karen was the most fun part of preparing for our wedding! She was a wonderful instructor for us as we had never really danced. She was patient and made the dance moves fun for us. She worked with the music that we requested and was very accommodating.
