The Dance Institute of Washington: what do users think?


Cheri Mallory: We have had a wonderful experience with DIW's Autism Acceptance Events.

Angela Ingram: Excellent Dance Training and excellent community for dances to train. DIW cares deeply for their students, faculty and staff.

Daisy Fischer: Positive: ProfessionalismMy Grandson participated in the virtual Theater Workshop on October 3rd, 2020, and he had so much fun. The ladies of Teatro La Bolsa did an excellent job of keeping the students engaged while they provided education in language, culture, dance and geography. Thank you.

Cassie Quick: I don't recommend this school as they are really unorganized. It takes weeks to follow up with parents about questions or concerns. It's pretty ridiculous. I recommend they hire additional help.
Response: Hello, Ms Quick. We are sorry to learn about your experience. As a non for profit organization our number one priority is to have the best positive impact in our youth. Of course we can’t do this without the support of parents and guardians and we apologize for the inconvenience. We would like to share that during the summer of 2019 DIW experienced multiple staff transitions and also began exciting renovation in which we are adding a new studio and student lab to our state of the art building. Although no excuse, please consider these major occurrences as a reason to why our line of communication failed you. Again, we apologize and hope you reconsider our school in the future as we have major exciting changes and upgrades in process. All best!

Zahra Carpenter: Very good quality of dance classes. Although the founder passed away, it is in the staff and teachers heart to carrying on his legacy. Cannot wait what is next for DIW!

Star Clark: I take lessons here sometimes. It's wonderful and cheap. Say hello to Lettie and Mara. Great instructors!

Noelle Hoerrner: I love to dance and the young dancers out there in Washington D.C. I think they have an opetunity here!

claudia Moreno: If it was possible to give less than one star i would. this place is beyond unprofessional and you will get tossed around from person to person trying to get basic information. horrible. horrible. absolutely horrible. customer service is absurd.

Cheryle Crawford: Great teacher for younger " bun heads", continues to use ZOOM classes effectively.

Peter Perkins: Interested in developing skills I'll highly recommend attending The Dance Institute of Washington also I much say many opportunities are available.

Sony Laventure: Was a tough process getting the room but we enjoyed the studio space and the sound system. Our participants also gave compliments about the room

Jake Nodar: We shot a dance sequence for a music video and were thrilled with everything about this place. Booking was easy and studio 2 was perfect for what we needed.

Darrell Duane: Great dance classes including Contact Improvisation Dance, Acro Yoga, Gaga, Ballet, Modern and more. Also has a lot of great workshops and special events!

Stephen Clapp: A great place for dance and movement classes! You can also catch a vibrant live dance concert! Also the home of Dance Metro DC!

Cameron Villanueva: My first day here was magical. Ecstatic dance with Atticus Mooney had me coming back weekly to keep the magic flowing.

Sylvana Christopher: A space for the community to train in dance arts, modalities and techniques.

Jennifer Tibbs: Open dance space is a bonus to me!

Dance Place: what do users think?


Ryan Delcher: Positive: Communication, ProfessionalismThe Dance Place Studio team is awesome to work with! I worked with Sarah G at Dance Place for a special event they hosted. She was friendly, professional, and a great communicator! Highly recommend this Studio and their team!

Kelly Paras: I came here for their Sunday evening performance and had a blast! However, I wasn't quite prepared for the drink situation...they sell glasses of wine, but you can't take it into the theater area unless you purchase an adult sippy cup (literally a plastic cup with a sippy lid on it) for an additional $5. It was weird and hilarious and I'm saving the cup for next time! The only negative about the experience was that the theater itself got really warm during the performance - everyone was sweating!
Response: Hey Kelly! Thanks so much for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed our fun travels mugs -- all the cool theaters are doing it. ;) Sorry it got toasty in the theater! We'll be sure to take a look at that for next time.

Janine Hightower: The variety of performances that pass through this place is mind-blowing 🤯! A cultural experience for all. Many of the performances offer audience participation/interaction. Tickets are reasonably priced, nice variety of snacks. Also you can often meet performance members after show! Clean bathrooms, friendly and organized staff. Be prepared to give written feedback...😉

dipika: Dance Place is one of my favorite establishments in DC, period. Their site schedule is diverse and offers something for everyone and they really focus on local talent which is special. The classes are also great, quite varied, and the space is good for beginning and intermediate class.
Response: Thank you so much for this amazing review!

Momma Boots: Dance place is awesome. Can't wait to come back in the spring. Miss Princess is the best teacher ever, our child had such a great time. We thank you so much Miss Princess.

Sydney Thom: The drop in adult dance classes are a great price and the modern class was of great quality. Dance Place offers the least expensive adult drop-in dance classes I've seen in the DC/MD/VA area. The class was really fun and challenging for all ability levels and taught by Rebecca Weiss, a substitute teacher for the class. This was my first class so I can't speak toward the regular flow of class with the normal teacher, but if it was anything like the class I attended then it's probably a class I'd recommend taking. I've danced for ~10yrs when I was younger and now about 10 years later I'm in my mid-20s and trying to pick things back up again:) This class was a great class to be in as an almost newbie to adult dance.

ife felix: Delicious!!! I took an African Dance class on May 3 at 1:45 with Sylvia and had the best time ever. The class was great. I live in New York City and take three sometimes fours classes a week and they, the classes in NY could not compare for energy. The other dancers were positive and the Sylvia one of the best. Whenever I'm in DC I will be dropping in. Thank you DancePlace.

Daniel Burkholder: Dance Place is the premier performance space for dance in the DC region with performances almost every weekend ranging from Modern to Post-Modern, World Dances to Performance Art. Highlights include annual Dance Africa, DC festival as well as its complete season of regional, national and international artists. Dance Place also offers a range of classes for adults and youth from beginning to professional. A great place!

Kate Christopherson: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, ValueGreat communication and fantastic customer service provided by Ava. I truly enjoy their professionalism and responsiveness.

Dan W: I went here for a comedy show. What a joke (and I don't mean that in a good way). The theater is fine, but the staff takes far too many liberties in trying to join the show. The staff joined in the audience to fill seats and constantly interrupted the comedian. Tried to join in the act far too many times and I had to walk out. Hint: do not go to this "Dance Place" for a comedy show as much as they advertise it!

Séber Method Academy: what do users think?


Courtney Partlow: My daughter went to Seber Method Academy just for an evaluation and we've been there ever since. The owner, Lilla, was able to quickly identify my daughter's areas for improvement and her development over the past year has been eye-opening. Great, friendly atmosphere, talented staff, and individual attention to help each dancer reach her/his potential. And flexible classes for serious to non-serious dancers. Most importantly, my daughter can't wait to get to dance each day. Highly recommend.

Nikita Rao: This dance school is a real find for drop in classes for dance for adults. I would highly recommend Adriane and Kay as they are the two teachers I use for tap classes.They are excellent teachers, thorough with their teachings and very amicable and friendly. I have also met some lovely fellow adult tappers at these classes. I love the concept of drop in classes which, maybe encourages more adults to learn a method of dance without fully committing to a session made up of many weeks. *Remaining message removed per request*

Maggie Sullivan: I spent the past 4 days in the wings photographing rehearsals and performances for Seber Method Academy's Winter Concert and I just had to share this thought I had today. These dancers are truly beautiful inside and out. Not only do they each have impeccable technique and high quality stage presence (especially for their young ages!), but they also have a refreshing and sweet love for each other. As I sat backstage, after each and every piece, I could each whispers of "Good job! Good job!" and see hugs and high fives and smiles galore. Every single piece! During each piece, their peers eagerly watched with wide eyes from the wings and silently cheered when a particularly difficult step was successfully executed. There were just so many sweet, loving moments in between each of the beautifully performed pieces and I had to share! Congratulations to all the students and faculty! I'm so grateful to have been a witness to this beauty.

Riley Lewis-Jones: I absolutely love the studio- I’ve been going here for years, everyone is very welcoming and it’s a great environment to dance in! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to take classes, regardless of experience. I especially love the Belly Dance classes and being a part of the Youth Company, Raqs Habibi

Angela Ingram: Great classes an excellent training.
Response: Thank you!

Anastasia Wass: Great teachers and a welcoming environment!

Jones-Haywood Dance School: what do users think?


DENISE HAWKINS: Highly recommended! My daughter was blessed to have the opportunity to study dance under the renowned Mrs. Sandra FORTUNE-GREEN, along with the other well traveled and experienced dance teachers at the school. It's a legacy that was built on the shoulders of Ms. Jones and Ms. Haywood that continues to train young dancers in ballet, jazz, tap, modern, and so much more!

M.E. Dolan: This non profit dance institution is a gem. It is run with love and care and earnest personal attention. Lots of places out there see you walk through the doors and just see dollar signs. Ms. Fortune and the team that runs Jones Haywood stay true to their mission of making dance available to all and thereby expand horizons for children and their families. The school and Ms. Fortune has made a great difference in the lives of my children. Highly recommend!!

Adrienne Burrows: I remember the Jones-Haywood School of Ballet from my days as a young girl growing up in Washington, DC. I am so glad that it still is thriving in the community.

Tracy Oliver-Gary: My daughter has been taking dance lessons at PDMI for a few years. Not only does she love it, but she also has become much more disciplined in other aspects of her life. The staff is friendly and professional. My daughter also loves the dance camps for spring and summer breaks. The summer camps include weekly field trips and dance performances by the students.

Isoke Baptiste: My daughter has been with Princess since she opened 5 years ago and we could not be more happy! We are both thrilled with her growth in her confidence and her dance skills. So happy to be a part of the PMDI dance family!

Paige Jewell: So many options for dace instruction! Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, what more do you need!? Princess is also amazing, definitely recommend this place!

The Kirov Academy of Washington, DC: what do users think?


Natalie Taylor: Incredibly professional and quality instruction. I took their online adult ballet, and Allison and Irina both were marvelous. Allison clearly set goals for the improvement of her students and was really knowledge about the biomechanics necessary to achieve those goals. I dramatically improved in flexibility and strength by spending mornings with Irina. The Saturday workshops (when I could make them) were informative and fun.

Kitty Al: All our family and friends were very pleased and happy to join online this year's Winter Gala Performance by students of Kirov Academy. The students have done a wonderful job training and showing their newly acquired skills. Thanks to all the teachers, choreographers, and staff members for providing families with such a wonderful opportunity to see their loved one's perform and shine, showing their latest achievements. Looking forward to see your Spring Gala Performance at the end of the academic year. Thanks a lot.

Jolissa Lybarger: The Kirov prepares not only quality Vaganova based ballet training, but also provides a supportive and kind staff. Their ability to connect with their students was apparent to me within a few days. They have high standards for instruction but also understand the importance of knowing kids. Their communication is always done with such thoughtfulness and efficiency. I never had to wait long for a response regardless of how busy the staff was at that time. I was also always treated with respect no matter how small or strange the question. I really felt valued as a parent. The best part was my daughter left The Kirov summer intensive a better and more confident dancer.

Yoonee van den eynde: My daughter loved so much her Summer Intensive at the Kirov Academy! She loved all!! She had such an incredible experience and she was so grateful to have such a hight level of training! She loved her teachers . She blossomed socially and made great friends ! The food was as well delicious and all the staff working there were incredibly sweet and helpful! So she can’t wait to be back for the year around ! She found her Ballet family and we are so grateful ❤️ Thank you Kirov Academy! Services: Jazz , Repertory ballet , Pointe ballet , Classical ballet technique , Intermediate program

Gail Kee: Kirov is a place for the serious ballet student, and few schools in the US that can match it in terms of teaching and care of full-time academy students. Kirov instructors pay attention to all students, not just the best ones. My 15-year old daughter has been in the academy for 3 years, and she has grown tremendously, not only in technical ability but in artistry and emotional understanding of her craft. Kirov, like any ballet school, has had its ups and down. But we have always appreciated the deep commitment of the teachers and staff.

Karen Cerkez: The Kirov Academy is a Great School , with a caring and loving Staff. The school has a wonderful history and a strong Alumni . Past Students and Graduates are performing in major ballet companies all over the World ,as Corp members , Soloist and Principal dancers. Many of them that have retired from there dance careers have become Doctors , Lawyers ,CEOs, Business Owners even Movie Stars. The school has had a 100% of students graduating and going onto great careers .

L D: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, QualityKirov was the only school this summer that went through all the hoops to provide an in-person intensive. Kudos! They succeeded despite many obstacles and my daughter gained valuable skills in a classroom, where dancers need to be.

Sharon Leve: If I could give this school less than 1 star I would. My daughter attended the 2019 Summer Intensive and it was truly horrible. Her ballet teacher only spoke Russian and would become upset if no one understood her. I complained to the director and was told it was my daughters fault. This wasn't the worst of it. The teacher only taught to about 3 girls in the class, only speaking to them (in Russian) only using them to demonstrate, only using them to dance, making everyone else stand on the side to watch. These same girls were given solos in all the performances or variations they did. Again, I spoke to the director who promised me she was looking into it and the other parents had complained as well. She also told me that particular teacher wouldn't be invited back to teach, little help to my daughter this year. Nothing changed the whole 6 weeks. My daughter, who was very enthusiastic to learn, learned NOTHING here, waste of time, waste of money. DO NOT attend this SI. I can only assume the school is the same.

acarineric: Positive: Professionalism, QualityA super show from the dancers of the Kirov Academy combining ballet skills and artistic talent. Kudos to the Kirov Academy for having delivered this full length and diverse gala show under the constraint of the pandemic.

Rhonda Williams: I attended a student performance and was unexpectedly moved to tears by the purity and integrity of the artists and their transcendent presentation. The Vaganova method is not for all dancers but Kirov Academy is a brilliant light in our nation's capital, upholding the standard of this demanding art form. Every Kirov graduate blesses the world with sublime beauty honed by inestimable hours of sacrifice and discipline-not in isolation, but surrounded and supported by a team of uncommonly dedicated teachers and staff.

Greater Washington Dance Center: what do users think?


The Mills Family: GWDC is a wonderful dance home for any family. Our daughter loves her teachers and classes and they always challenge her to grow. We are thankful for the healthy attitudes about body image, strength and diversity that are present at the studio. Our daughter looks up to the older dancers who are great role models. The performance opportunities, especially the Nutcracker, are something our daughter looks forward to every year.

Dawn Tucker: My daughter, now 6, has been a part of the GWDC family for a couple years. They are inclusive, supportive, and a wonderful studio to be a part of. The owner and teachers are professional and work with children no matter the goals. We are proud to be a part of this community and feel very lucky for my daughter to have started here so young.

John Setlik: Our daughter has attended GWDC now for 3 years, entering at an awkward age with not particularly strong dance experience. Within a year, Gretchen and her staff had turned her around with noticeable improvement. They have been positive, supportive, and inclusive in such a way that our daughter LOVES attending her multiple classes each week. Being a busy high school student, Gretchen was very kind about working with difficult schedules. It’s also very clear that student safety is a top priority as training is taken very seriously before students are allowed to advance. Along with the ballet instruction, the modern and tap classes are excellent as well. If you’re looking for dance instruction at any age, we would highly recommend checking out GWDC!

C Spinney: My oldest daughter attends three dance classes per week at GWDC and she has learned more in a few sessions than she had in a year in a previous school. The instructors are top notch. This school is impressive for a newer school - it is incredibly organized, they offer a lot of guest dance instructors, varied fitness classes, and more music and performance art options are added all the time. Also - it's for both children and adults. This school is on a whole different level than some of the other local schools, but at the same time the philosophy of the owner is for kids to have fun. Highly recommend!

Meg V: This is such a wonderful studio! The quality of instruction is superb, but most importantly it is a loving, encouraging, and kind family of dancers for all ages and levels.

Caitlin Vives: GWDC is an absolute haven for my sparkly, ballet-loving son. GWDC is an inclusive, welcoming, HEALTHY dance studio that offers all dancers a place to grow and flourish on their dance journey. If you have a son who is interested in dance, THIS is the place to be. GWDC values all of their dancers, but the male dancers here are not just an afterthought. The studio has various classes devoted to helping the male dancers hone their skills. The camaraderie among the ballerinos is absolutely gorgeous. You cannot ask for a better set of role models and companions for your son. The director is warm, welcoming, and holds high expectations rooted unequivocally in love for not just dance but each dancer. The inclusive and hospitable environment at GWDC comes from the top down. Every teacher cares. Every single one. If you want to offer your child a place where they can safely be themselves and pursue/find not just their love of dance but of themselves, come to GWDC. And if you do join us, come say, "Hi!" We GWDC parents are a friendly lot :)
Response: Thank you SO much! ❤️ And, yes, the GWDC parents are the BEST!

Amanda King: GWDC has amazing teachers! We love Ms Julianne, she is patient and kind, especially with a room of 5 year old beginning ballerinas. Highly recommend this studio, especially for young dancers.

Lynne Glowacki: Edit 2019. I am attaching a screen shot of a message that the studio director sent out during Nutcracker last year. This message was sent out as a direct response to something that I did, namely, at the request of another parent, I asked some of the younger girls who were acting horribly to another girl to (1) stop taking off their costume hats and shoes; (2) stop throwing their costume hats and shoes; (3) stop trying to take costume pieces off of girls who didn't want to participate in their shenanigans. I explained to them that we were working very hard on these costumes and they needed to show some respect. One of the parents complained and instead of coming to me, the Studio Director sent out this message to the entire Nutcracker family. Most of the parents thought I was staff because I volunteered for so many hours on costumes, they had no idea I was actually just another parent and not a paid employee. I think that the message speaks for itself; however, we have since left the studio, and after half a year at a different studio, both of my kids have improved tremendously in their dancing. Perhaps the statement that we shouldn't be correcting the students extends to correcting their dancing. In case you cannot read the email, the text follows: ***A NOTE REGARDING THE BACKSTAGE AREA*** It is absolutely imperative that this remain a POSITIVE environment for all of the young dancers. While there needs to be discipline in terms of keeping the dancers quiet, protecting the costumes and following instructions, it is equally important that the young dancers are not exposed to inappropriate language and harsh, pointed words of chastisement. NO production quality should be at the expense of a young person’s feeling of value and self-worth. I understand the excitement of the impending production but as adults we need to always keep in mind that what we are feeling is only a quarter of what the young people are feeling. This is going to be the memory of a lifetime for them and they need to have only positive, wonderful feelings about their participation in our show. Thank you so much for your cooperation in this matter. Original post is below. It's astounding how much I gave to this studio. ______________________________________ My daughter has been attending GWDC since it opened, and my son has been attending for the last year. As a former dancer, I sincerely appreciate this studio, the teachers, and the entire dance philosophy. As very young dancers, students learn the love of dance and movement and dance through play. As they get older, play is reduced and more technique is brought in. That is not to say the older kids don't have any fun, though. Through Ballet 2, students still play with props, but in a way that encourages the learning of new movements (think wax on, wax off only for ballet!). Ballet is taught as the basics and foundation of other dance forms, and older students can add in other dance forms. There is also a great feeling just bringing your children to the school. You can watch your younger children dance, as they are in a classroom with a large window for parents to look through), so you never feel like you don't know what they are learning or how they are doing. The teachers will answer questions and have often stayed late to do so. I have personally taken some of the adult classes as well, and I highly recommend them! Right now, they're trying to get some of us former dancers back into form, and it's fantastic.

Diedre Smith: My daughter has loved every class she's taken her. I love the growth I'm seeing in her dance skills and I'm thankful for the time and effort the teachers give to her and the other students!

James School Of Dance: what do users think?


VF Oliver: I can't say enough good things about JSDA! Since our family started taking classes, we feel like part of a community! The teachers and office manager know all of us by name; the teachers take time to get to know their students (what makes them click and inspires them) and the office manager takes time to get to know the parents/caregivers, etc. and makes them feel welcome! The dance studio offers a variety of classes for beginners to serious, competitive dancers. I'd like to highlight their unique teen dance program which allows teenagers who are beginning dancers to comfortably take classes with other students their age. You're never too old to start dancing! The dance studio is located in downtown McLean and therefore conveniently located for parents/caregivers who can run meaningful errands nearby while their dancers are in class. But, the studio also has a lovely waiting area if you want to watch the classes on TV. Overall, I highly recommend JSDA's dance studio!

Chris Loizou: The staff and teachers are wonderful! Would highly recommend to anyone in town!

Grace Valera: Very good dancers n ballet teachers
Response: Thank you for your review, we appreciate it! -Amy L., JSDA

The Salsa With Silvia Dance Studio: what do users think?


Kat Cap: Was visiting DC for the weekend & felt like I wanted to do something else instead of museums and found Silvia's event on Eventbrite for their first ever Saturday morning Yoga & Salsa Social Dancing event! One can either choose to do just the yoga, or social OR best of both worlds! I had a flowy strengthening fun yoga class with Anya & enjoyed DJ Aldo's amazing music & dancing! I've started learning a bit of salsa on 2 and despite them being a salsa on 1 studio, they welcomed me so kindly! We all enjoyed dancing with each other, had met such fantabulous people with great vibes! I recommend this studio so0o much! I can only imagine how awesome their regular classes are!
Response: Omg, Kat, thank you SO much for the super kind words! This was the first time we tried this format and we’ll only be getting better! So glad you stopped by and we hope to see you again soon. We also offer classes on 2. Cheers, Silvia

Summer Brouwer: There’s a reason why they have 5 stars! I never had the luxury of attending dance classes. I just moved here cross country and wanted to try a new experience. I was very hesitant, and very nervous, but I bought the new student pass for $100. The pass allows you to attend unlimited group classes for the month. It’s about a week into the session and I am in love with dance! They have many different instructors and many different styles of dance. I felt at ease learning with other students of my skill level and the energy of my instructors helped me feel so comfortable as well. If you’re on the fence about whether you want to try it or not, GET OVER IT! I love it here and you will too!
Response: Wow, Summer! I have tears in my eyes after reading your review! It makes it all worth the hard work! Thank you so much! We are here to show people that dance heals and helps physically and emotionally. We are so happy you love dance now! Silvia

Reema Bhardwaj: Salsa with Silvia is THE PLACE TO BE. Whether you’re looking to improve your dancing, rent their beautiful studio for your private event, or bring your kids for an experience. You will leave feeling satisfied and happy that you took the step to come in. There is a reason this studio is the #1 Latin Dance studio in the DMV. You can feel the love that was put into the studio from starting out in just a basement to two studios! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The teachers are patient, understanding, and energetic. The adult dance classes are always so much fun and filled with great material you can take with you. They even allow videos to be taken so you can look back to review. And the owner Silvia, she is a boss lady. Very friendly, helpful, and fun. If you’re looking to have a great time with your friends, learn, teach your children dance, or have a private event, come here & don’t waste your time calling other studios!
Response: Much 💗 for you! Thank you so much for your support!

Darniesha Beach: Took my 2 year old to the babies dance class and the teacher was great. Very good with little ones and my daughter took to her immediately. The class was empty just 2 little ones including mine... but she still managed to fill the time and make it fun. Everything was very clean and location is nice if you want to make a day of it. My only complaint is the time; my daughter has to skip a nap to attend. She was super cranky so I don’t think we’ll be back until a different time slot is available or she no longer needs her afternoon nap. A class between 9&12 or at 5 would be cool.
Response: Thank you 💗 what time would work for you?

Melody Bowles: Everyone should go! We did the romantic kizumba class and it was amazing
Response: Much appreciated! We are so happy you liked the class! We can't wait to see you again soon!

Mia H: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueTook a private salsa lesson for 2 and it was AMAZING! Joffre was so kind and knowledgeable that he made learning to dance easy! Perfect for if you're looking to try something new or for a date night!
Response: Thank you so much, Mia! We are so glad you loved the lesson.

Nikki Mammano: Finally after some time, I feel ready to write this review. I took Silvia's salsa teacher training course back in 2019 with an excitement to take my dancing to the next level. I have been dancing salsa since 2014 and I wasn't sure if I wanted to actually take the next leap and teach yet, but I was curious to start building a teacher foundation. After the experience however, I realized it was a mistake. And now, I cannot recommend this studio. The course itself I think was the first time Silvia and David were hosting it, it was extremely disorganized and not thought out. Some of the material was okay, but they threw so much at us in a short amount of time (7 weeks) and expected us to be experts by the end without any support. Silvia is also one of the coldest and most unsupportive people I have ever met. For the last class, she told us we were having a "test." I remember the week before I asked her who we would be teaching and how I should prepare, she did not give me very much information. When I walked in the week, I expected we would be teaching the other trainees like we were the 6 weeks prior. Nope. She threw actual student volunteers at us without informing us or letting us prepare. For me, it was very nerve-racking. She placed me to go last and by the time it was my turn, there were more students in my class than the trainees before me, which made the experience even worse. During our feedback session at the end, with both her and David, Silvia looked me cold in the face and told me I was too insecure to be a teacher. Mind you, I paid a lot of $$$ to take this "teacher training," just to be torn down as a dancer. I suggest Silvia does NOT host a teacher training again. Also, there is a lot of great dancing in DC. While you can learn some great foundations here and some of the teachers are wonderful, I do suggest looking elsewhere to become an advanced dancer.
Response: Thank you for the honest, review Nikki. I apologize if we've hurt you in any way. Teaching indeed is nerve wracking any way you look at it so it takes a certain personality to be able to be a good teacher. Teachers are always presented with difficult situations and they have to know how to handle them whether they are ready or not. Part of the training was a personality test to see if people can handle situations like that. The goal of the training was to provide the knowledge as to where the information was, the rest was on the trainees to study and prepare. As with all other trainings. You are completely entitled to your opinion of course and again, I apologize. Most of the trainees ended up teaching classes at the studio and that's the only negative review we've received. My advise would be if you really want to be a teacher, you should keep trying and working at it because it takes really hard work and it's mostly on you, not so much on the training, anywhere you get it. I, for example have never had a formal training but I've worked incredibly hard on studying, preparing and practicing so I can be ready to teach. Cold is something I haven't been called just yet but if that's what you think of me, I cannot argue. Hundreds of our students may disagree with you and I am always open to meet and talk to any of them, which is how I built the largest Latin dance studio in the DMV. Again, best of luck Nikki and I am sorry it didn't work out. Regards, Silvia

Caoilfhionn Roche: I am a former student of Mario, Joffre, and Cat's classes, and Joffre's current dance partner and assistant of 2 years now. The Salsa with Silvia studio has been my home for 2 years, as it has been home to many others. Particularly considering the global pandemic that we have collectively gone through, I think that one of the greatest lessons the last year has taught us is that we are social beings, and we need community, which is what the studio has brought to everyone that has walked through the doors. I have spent majority of my weeks over the last 2 years at this studio - truly nonstop - and I have never felt anything other than respect, care, and professionalism from Silvia as a studio owner and Joffre as an instructor and partner. His classes and teams are a joyful, fun, safe space, where I, among others have learned and laughed together. I have continuously heard from people how Joffre's classes and practices are the highlights of their days (and mine as well). Through a global pandemic and beyond it, Joffre has been a constant for his classes and teams, always respectful and responsible, cultivating a safe space for people to come, from wherever someone's day is bringing them, and be their authentic selves. This has created nothing but a community filled with honest, kind, caring people, that I have encountered. This has been my continuous experience with SWS over the last 2 years. The bottom line is: Silvia, Joffre, and the entire SWS community is a wonderful place to be, and I truly encourage you to come and see and feel it for yourself. - Keelin
Response: Thank you, Keelin!

Margaret Houck: I have been taking classes at Salsa with Silvia for about 6 months now and I'm nothing but grateful for everything this studio has brought me! When I started I was recently out of college, new to DC, had zero dance background, and was nervous to be putting myself out there. But there was no need to be nervous because everyone at the studio provided such a welcoming, comforting, safe environment for me to learn and explore my new love for dancing. I've taken classes with multiple different instructors at SWS and have truly enjoyed them all! I tend to go to Joffre's classes multiple times per week and absolutely love them. He and his assistant, Keelin, provide such a fun, safe environment for everyone to learn and challenge themselves. I always feel welcomed in their space and am so thankful for all of the great experiences that they and everyone at SWS have given me. Can't wait to keep learning new moves, making new friends, and connecting with the salsa community through SWS :)
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words! It means a lot!

Zey: Salsa with Silvia is more than a dance studio. Lots of magic happens there. You’ve got all the basics- amazing instructors, good variety of classes in style and level, a professional business, and a safe and reliable environment. In addition, you learn how dancing is about much more than just moving your body. By joining the studio you enter a community, so you meet amazing people and make new friends. The owner Silvia is always engaged and she is always willing to help. I have been going to the studio for about 2 years now, and the instructor I have taken the most number of classes with is Joffre. I always had a thing for salsa, but he is the one who really made me love it. Joffre is technically very competent, and he is also a great teacher (which is not always a given). He is also a warm and genuine person, who is very open to feedback. And as a bonus, he has the best taste in music, I learned the best songs/ artists I know from him. In short, if you are interested in entering the world of latin dancing, SWS is the place for you!
Response: Wow! ❤️ Thank you! We love our students so much! So happy that you are part of our community! People like you are the reason for us to fight and survive last year! Thank you!

Born 2 Dance Studio: what do users think?


Julia Maltsev: If you could give 0 stars i would. The management and front desk stuff are absolutely unprofessional, clueless and irresponsible. I called to inquire about the class they had on their website, the person who answered my call gave me all the info and instructions on how to make a reservation. I made a reservation online and paid for it. Received confirmation email with date and time. On the day of the class I arrived to the studio and found out that the class was moved couple weeks ago and there no class today, and the website just wasn't update. To my questions on why the person i spoke with didn't let me know about or why no one called me to let me know that there no class when they see my reservation, they had no answer. I was beyond disappointed as i made all the plans around this class. They gave me an owner's email to address my concerns. Well, owner never responded to my email. A week later I decided to give it a second try. I check the website again and saw an updated schedule with the class on Thursday at 8.45. Same day i called the studio to reconfirm that there will be a class. I briefly told them the story that happened last week and said that i dont want it to happen again. She put me on hold , and after couple minutes came back saying that there definitely a class today. Guess what? When i arrived to the studio, NO CLASS!!!!! Like what????? I was told that the instructor is recovering after the surgery. Then why i was told that the class still scheduled when i called, why this class is on the updated schedule? I am beyond dissatisfied. I arranged my evening to be able to come here, drove 45 min one way. Would not recommend this place unless you know instructors in person and can verify class availability through them, as the stuff has no idea what are they doing.

Tracy Yager: Such a great friendly studio, it offers a variety of classes that give such a great learning experience, yet also offers a fun challenge. Chesco is a phenomenal, motivating, talented instructor, but is super humble about his gifts of dance.

Ravneet Kaur: I attended my first experience with the dance workshops/social event this past Saturday. My friend had mentioned it before, and I finally had a chance to check it out myself. I had so much fun and felt like I met wonderful, new friends. I started off the evening with Bachata class with Chesco. Being a beginner, he and everyone else in the class were very patient and understanding, and I could see they genuinely wanted me to learn. This created a comfortable, but lively environment. Then, I joined my first Urban Kiz class with Charlie, which was another beautiful experience. I'd like to thank Noche de Baile and Born 2 Dance for hosting such a fun event! Will definitely back :)

Jerry Brown: Great Time Last Night At Salsa Bachata Zouk & Kizomba Social - Noche de Baile. Excellent Workshops And Dance. It Was Like A “Mini-Dance Congress/Festival… Bouncing To Various Dance Rooms.Safe COVID Protocal, Friendly Staff, Warm Participants.🕺🏽💃🏽…😎 OUTSTANDING!!!

Jessica Brewer: Shahana's classes are wonderful for adults looking for a good workout. She's encouraging, challenging, and creative.

Amelia Marple: I LOVE their adult classes! Challenging but really feel like you are progressing week after week. Lots of fun! Definitely left sore and inspires! I feel like a real dancer in these rooms

Shadi Assar: I had my daughters 5th bday party here and it was a great experience. We had a decent size separate room to have pizza and cake and set up our own decorations as we wanted. Kids had a separate room for their dance lesson. The dance instructor was very bubbly and perfectly geared for getting children riled up for a fun time. Both boys and girls had a good time dancing and running around. Highly recommend!!! Very clean and modern environment especially compared to other local studios.

Alli F: I have been dancing at b2d since 2011 and had never danced in my life before then. As an adult I was scared to go into my first class but thanks to a welcoming studio and staff I quickly became addicted to the classes and started performing. I have not taken all the instructors, however I have only heard positive things and can personally highly recommend Marcus and Manny for hip hop, Eve for Kpop and Dianamaria for Urban Burlesque. Manny was my first ever dance instructor and he is so calm and cool and makes the class fun. Marcus is an amazing dancer/musician and I am currently obsessed with his classes. He breaks down the moves and always creates the most awesome choreo with brilliant musicality. Dianamarias class was my first ever performance class 7 years ago and it was a blast. I had zero experience and she turned me into a sexy dancer IN HEELS (I had never danced in heels before... and it was awesome). The ladies in UB class are always supportive and amazing as well. Eve's kpop class is always a joy to go to. Her upbeat personality and teaching style make every class feel like a dance party. I always leave her class with a smile on my face even though I don't know any Korean, the kpop music is so catchy that you can't help but love it! The owners of the studio are the same as when I started and I love the variety of classes they offer and their makeup policy. They have interns who run the front desk and I have never had any issues with them or with signing up for classes. Everything is run very smoothly and there is always plenty of parking. It's easily accessible from rt 123. I highly recommend this studio to all adults.

Jessie E: My daughter is in a ballet class for 4-6 year olds. The class is only 45 minutes long and the teacher is always late and always finishes early giving them about 30 minutes of actual ballet time. As a parent this is frustrating because I have to fight traffic to get there and pay for the class that isn't even what it's supposed to be. The only reason I have continued is because my 4 year old loves participating, otherwise pretty disappointing. They clearly don't take this age group even a little seriously which is not entirely fair to them.

Jazz B: I had a lot of fun at the kpop dance class !

AVA Dance Company: what do users think?


Sarah Phippen: I went to one class at AVA Dance Company. I think that if you are already a skilled dancer and grew up taking a lot of dance classes, then AVA is a great way to meet people and have fun. I, however, was not a dancer in high school and felt that the class moved way too quickly for my skill level. Classes are only offered by dance type (hip hop, jazz, etc.) so if you're not already a trained dancer then you will fall behind quickly. No one really took time to stop and make sure I truly understood the moves and completed them correctly, which was disappointing and made me feel uncomfortable. I'm also a pretty fit person who works out regularly, so I have no issues with flexibility or intense physical activity.

Venus Terzella: The jzz and hip hop classes were fun, challenging, and instructors super helpful

Making Moves Dance Collective (MMDC): what do users think?


Takiaya Hall: I am so glad I made the decision to get my daughter involved in dancing. I stumbled across Making Moves Dance Collective 3 years ago and my daughter has been a part of the family every since. When I use the term “family”, it’s not loosely. At Making Moves Dance Collective they make you feel like you’re a part of an extended family. My daughter has gained valuable friendships and big sisters while being exposed to professional dance training and skills that are truly invaluable! I thank Making Moves Dance Collective for allowing us to be part of something great! And now my toddler son is attending dance classes at the studio!
Response: To say her growth has been tremendous is an understatement. We are so happy to have you all as part of the family.

Candace Dula: I have had 3 children dance with MMDC and we have become a part of something much bigger than us! I love the tight-knit, family feel of the studio, and the Directors are Awesome!!! The teachers are all very talented, and most importantly they love the children, so they work with them to bring out the shining stars!!! No matter the shape, size, or color, all are welcome and that is why Making Moves has set a standard for all others to follow!!!
Response: Thank you! We do pride ourselves on being a studio for all dancers. No matter the age, race, shapely color - everyone has a home at MMDC!

Araceli Carreno: Best Dance Studio in the DMV. My niece has been dancing with them for 4yrs and my daughter started this month. Staff is amazing and they all treat you like family. My daughter is only 2 and she absolutely loves Miss Shannan. My niece is part of their competition team "PRIDE" and it is amazing. All their routines are so much fun to watch.
Response: Thank you so much for your support and your commitment to your daughter, your niece and our studio. We will always be #strongertogether

M. Serrano: A great dance studio that is very diverse and caters to the entire community on a recreational and competitive level. My daughter has been dancing here since the age of 4 and she is 12 years old now. The studio has also grown to be very competitive and participates and shines in dance competitions both local and out of state. The teaching staff are a group of talented individuals and the two owners are the warmest pair of ladies you will ever meet. As a non-profit organization, the studio awards scholarships each year to those who carry dance in their heart but cannot afford to pay for dance lessons. They definitely strive to provide excellent technical training while developing their dancers’ confidence. Check them out!
Response: Thank you for your kind words. We take pride in equally supporting the growth and our recreational and competitive dancers!

Stephanie R.: The environment here is awsome! All the kids are very excited about their classes. Are eager to learn new dance moves and love all of their teachers. They are all so very sweet. I don't approve of some of the dance moves for certain ages as they can get to provocative and sexual (I've heard this from a few parents as well as the audiences). But overall the dances my kids have been in have been age appropriate.
Response: I’m so glad that you have enjoyed your experience and I’m surprised and sorry to hear you and others have viewed some of the moves as too provacative. As a studio who caters to dancers ages 3 through adult, there will be more mature choreography set on the Seniors and Adults. There are some routines where dancers are encouraged to freestyle and all of our instructors do emphasize allowing creative freedom, though we do also talk about what is/is not age appropriate for dancers of all ages and levels.

Noel Johnson: Making Move Dance Collective is THE BEST studio in the Washington Metropolitan area! My daughter started here in 2016 and the transformation from then to now is truly astounding. Enrolling her in classes at this studio is one of the best decisions I could have ever made. Miss Kellie and Miss Amber saw her potential and ran with it! I could not be more pleased with her development and growth under the teachings at MMDC!
Response: Thank you, Noel. The scary part is we’ve just started tapping into Brooklynn’s potential. She was born to be on stage. T(asks for choosing the MMDC family!

Breyona Richardson: MMDC is a great dance studio! My daughter started with MMDC when she was 3 years old and she is now 7. She has grown into this talented dancing machine and the credit goes towards the dance instructors at MMDC. This year is my daughters first year on the competitive Pride Team and it has been nothing but a great experience! Every Competition we have left with Platinums, High Golds, 1st and 2nd places. Bringing her to MMDC was the best decision I made for my daughter! Coming into the studio you are always greated with friendly smiles! It is definitely a family oriented atmosphere! You will not be disappointed! Ms. Kellie and Ms. Amber are the absolute BEST there is!
Response: Thank you so much, Breyona. It has been a pleasure to watch Brooke grow and mature in both her technique and her love for the art of dance.

jessica Eppard: Absolutely love this dance studio excellent environment. All of the staff members are friendly they make your child feel comfortable. My daughter has been dancing at this studio for almost 3 yrs now we're so glad we found this place she loves it.
Response: It has been our pleasure to watch your daughter blossom right before our eyes. We cannot wait to see what the future holds for her!

Meka Seaforth: MMDC is an excellent recreational/competitive studio for babies to adults. My daughter has been dancing since she was around 3/4 yrs old she will be 12 later this year. The studio has grown from just space inside a church to 3 well equipped studios. They have a great team of teachers/staff & student assistants that will enhance your child's LOVE FOR DANCE!!!! I cannot say enough great things about MMDC if you are in search of a new dance home please stop by and say Hello...you will not regret it!!!!! TEAM MMDC
Response: Thank you so much for your love and support! #Teammmdc

Jamii PremDas: My son and daughter love MMDC! It is family oriented and a very comfortable environment. I appreciate the dual emphasis on choreography and technique. There is open communcation with the instructors and directors. All the staff are passionate about dance, teaching, and develping children.
Response: Thank you so much! We do pride ourselves on our dual emphasis. We want to create technically sound dancers with amazing stage presence. We love you all and are so glad you’re part of the family!

ZIND Performing Academy: what do users think?


Vishwadha: Zind really works hard to make a safe space for everyone and to help everyone grow both as a dancer and as a person! Whether you're a student or instructor here, there is so much to learn and grow from and several opportunities to show off your skills and talent.

Shourie Eats: We love ZIND Performing Academy my daughter has a passion for dancing and the instructor is very creative is very committed to her students she has encouraged her twin brother to join the academy and he is thriving as well. Blessings, to all and keep the fire of dancing Live 💃 Happy New Year 🎇

Freeda Moses: DD enjoy classes here at Zind. Both Bollywood and Semi classical teachers are good. Small class size help with teacher/student interactions and opportunities to learn and grow!

Aditi Gadariya: Very welcoming & positive community! The instructors are understanding and open to new ideas brought up by the students. They are also patient when teaching choreography and have no problem answering questions or clarifying steps. Tons of performance opportunities are given as well! It’s a fun, engaging experience for a wide range of ages!

Nalia Ahmed: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueZind is a welcoming community that has helped me grow as a dancer, and improve upon my skills in so many areas. Even though I dance in a group, I’m also getting individual feedback and learning how to become more expressive as an individual. The best part of joining Zind however is gaining a new family.

Andrea Miller: ZIND is a wonderful dance community focused on uplifting and encouraging all dancers.

Millie Vyas: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueWhen I first joined Zind, I was shy and very stiff as a dancer. Throughout the years I have felt more comfortable on the stage and with my classmates, making me more confident and expressive.

Sonal Desai: I love that they offer so many different genres of traditional Indian dance. If you’re looking for a new experience, I highly recommend Zind! The instructors are very patient and so encouraging. It’s a very fun dynamic and a great after school activity for kids and adults alike.

Smitha Menon: I had great experience working with Ninankshi Dance Studio - whether sending my son to perform with the group or working with the director in organizing a program. Nina, the director of the Dance Studio is very passionate about dancing and teaching her students. She is very professional, creative and organized.

Amanth_ Inspiration: Ninakshi dance studio is very professional and easy to deal with. From a student perspective very easy payment methods, great costumes and performance organization.We don't have to do any running around on our part to put together costumes for performances Nina makes this process very simple and duplicatable for every performance. The dance pieces are unique and different and I love the classical touch. Definitely recommend this in the D.C/Metro area!!!
