""Michaela taught us in January for a month and we learned so much. It definitely helped to soothe the winter blues. However, it was during my 50th birthday celebration that she really shined. My husband surprised me with her coming to our party to teach everyone a lesson. We had such a great time with people of all ages learning to dance. It added such a fun, elegant touch to my party.She is warm, positive and so friendly. A wonderful instructor!"

"Michaela is such a kind, compassionate, and enthusiastic dance teacher! I had never considered myself much of a dancer, so we signed up for lessons with Michaela before our wedding. And.. WOW! Not only did we have an amazing first dance at our wedding, we had so much fun during the lessons and working on this new skill as a couple! Dance lessons with Michaela are the perfect date night!"
