If you are looking for a unique element for your event- something that your guests will always remember- Aaron and Andrea can customize the perfect dance entertainment package for you!
Andrea is a wonderful person and a fantastic dance teacher. I hired her to entertain a bunch of little kids at my daughter's birthday party, and the result exceed my most optimistic expectations. Kids as young as 1.5y.o. loved Andrea at first site, danced with her and around her for the entire, and had an absolutely amazing time.
Parents also had an amazing experience (i.e. a break).
Definitely recommend Andrea for working with kids and adults, and will be happy to work with her again.
I was often complimented on my skill level for how long I had been dancing. Without any doubt in my mind, the private lessons with Aaron and Andrea were one, if not the most, significant factors in my fast progress. They catered everything to my skill level and kept me challenged. When they needed to demonstrate things, they did it masterfully, and their critique was constructive and clear.
Andrea and Aaron are phenomenal dancers! Their movements together are extremely smooth and fluid and I especially loved the trick where Andrea flips Aaron. In the lesson they explained all the moves clearly and helped make the guests feel comfortable dancing. A must see pair!

What to Expect
We bring high energy and a lighthearted appreciation of old-school American pop-culture.
We customize our dance lessons from 'I-can-barely-walk' to 'try-to-keep-me-off-the-dance-floor.' A introduction Swing dance lesson from us before your big event kicks off is a great way to get you guests loose and feeling ready to party. If you're looking for individual attention, private dance lessons, or some choreography- we do that too! It's important to us, no matter what the event or who we are teaching, that our lessons are super fun and laid-back.
We can also lay down some great, classic jazz for your guests to dine or dance to.
Ask for exactly what you want, we can probably make it work :)
