What Our Dance Students Say
"I am 73 years old and began dancing a couple of years ago to be able to perform at my daughter’s wedding. I went in scared as could be due to bad experiences when younger. I had instructors in other schools younger than my daughter with no wisdom and little experience. Frankly, it was horrific. I can’t tell you how many times I couldn’t wait to leave those lessons and threatened to quit.
After a host of trying and unfortunate experiences, I was referred to Karena of The Real Ballroom for lessons. And it was at that point that the whole thing changed for me. Not only did I gain a great teacher, but a great friend. Both Karena and Danilo have been so supportive, knowing just when to push me a little more, and to be there when my confidence hits bottom. The patience and compassion are never-ending. The pace is just right, and when I hit a wall, we stop, and she explains exactly what’s going on for me and encourages me to keep going. The wisdom and experience of this pair are incredible. And now I look forward to lessons twice weekly, and those lessons seem to finish so quickly because it’s so much fun for both of us."
