Praise for Nick

"Nick is a strong communicator and an inspiring dancer. His passion for dancing is catching, and he displays great, positive energy when he teaches. He brings clarity and style to every step he demonstrates with Melissa. The two form an ideal pair of dance instructors."

"Excellent instructor. Very prepared and able to remain present for the instruction for demonstration and talking us through the movements. Open and creative. Very inspiring instructor. Made it fun and engaging."

Praise for Melissa

"Melissa is such a perfect dance partner. She demonstrated every move with effortless ease, grace, and a charming smile. She was definitely a pleasure to watch and an encouraging presence to learn by imitation."

"Delightful to watch the movement and easy to follow. Very encouraging. Very graceful and open. Was flexible with her ability to go with the flow. Terrific."

"Very approachable for individual questions. She has perfect mannerisms for a follow instructor. She is very attentive to the steps being demonstrated and provides appropriate body language and facial expression to emphasize the point of the lesson."

"As a dance partner, she was wonderful and had an animated way of expressing herself via her facial expressions."

Praise for Nick & Melissa
