We just can't say enough about how pleased we are with our dance lessons. It has been an enjoyable experience for both of us! As we have told you many times, we are so thankful that we have found you.

"Taking ballroom dancing lessons from Lori has been a lot of fun and a great challenge. Lori is very patient and  carefully doles out details in small bite-sized chunks, making our dancing glide as smooth as glass. Dance is taught in layers and the more layers I learn in our private lessons, the more I fall in love with it over and over again." 
          - Joe & Bonnie, Emmett
" We loved every minute of our dance lessons....Even when I cried a little bit."

" This has been an incredible experience for us!!! My husband started class with absolutely no dance/music experience and had difficulty with rhythm and beats. Lori was very patient with both of us and always encouraging. there were time I thought we would never be able to grasp it, but we did!!! (Can't get enough) It has brought us closer!!! We have made great friends and have a lot to look forward to."

I first met Lori wayyyy back in about 1989 or 1990. Walked into the studio and said "We want to learn Ballroom" Of course Not knowing what I was even saying, lol. My very good friend Barbara wanted to take lessons and I was newly single and said, why not. Well, Ballroom became my "Guilty Pleasure" in life and Lori was my teacher and friend for the next several years. Being 39, single and a short Male - Not a great way to enter the 'dating world' Ballroom lessons fixed that - had a great time and took the beginners class so many times, I started to help her out, lol. Through Ballroom, I met my best friend and my new wife - We don't dance as much anymore, still married and loving life... If I behave my self - This July 11, 2013 will be our 21st anniversary. We will be on another Harley trip and be passing through Boise on July 8 - plan to stop and see our friend.
I can not say enough good things about Lori - Great Teacher / Friend - keep an open mind and you will learn something that will stay with your for a life time... Your  first time can not be as scary as mine was... When I walked into that first class - I was sure I knew how to count to 4 - after our first hour - Not so sure, lol... If you have taken dance lessons, you know what I mean... If you don't know what I mean.... Take a lesson and you will learn...
Greatest thing I have ever done
