"My husband and I are not professional dancers, nor do we really dance that much socially, so we were thrilled to work with Danielle
in preparation for our wedding.
works very personally with couples, not forcing techniques that would seem very staged for some of us, but sticking to a dance that reflects the style of the pair.
started by teaching us the basics of ballroom, which helped us learn how to move around the floor together.
From this, she
helped us select a dance that would fit our song and our personalities.
We laughed through every lesson, never feeling pressured to do a move that didn't suit us, and Danielle
was superb in modifying steps to match the space, our attire, and the mood of our reception.
We could not have been happier with the result.
We felt comfortable and confident when we danced our first dance, and we had a great time, as well.
It is a very special memory for us, and we have Danielle
to thank for it."
We first saw Danielle at practice session at the Sandra Cameron dance studio and we knew immediately we wanted her to be our private instructor.
helped us plan an international standard waltz routine and she
lent us cds to help us settle on a song.
In the midst of the stress of wedding planning we found we both really looked forward to our sessions with Danielle
We found Danielle to be fun, motivating instructor and we felt she was personally invested in making our wedding day a success.
In ten private sessions, we found we had completed the entire bronze syllabus for international standard waltz!
When the moment of truth finally came, we were able to execute thanks to the confidence and training Danielle
instilled in us.
Many guests later came up to us gushing about how professional we looked.
Looking back, we are so happy to have invested in lessons with Danielle
