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.

Studio One Dance: what do users think?


Pia Bacolod: Positive: CommunicationMy little girl just started a week long summer camp here and had the best first day ever! She raved on and on about how much fun she had. They've got a great Director there that was very responsive to my questions as well. I love the organic fruit they offer the kids afire snacks. Nice, clean, well ran studio for the little ones.
Response: Thank you for the lovely review, Pia! We are so glad that your dancer is enjoying camp!

Austin Graff: Our three-year-old daughter LOVES Studio One Dance. For $80 a month, we attend weekly dance classes on Saturdays from 10:15-11am (the perfect amount of time to learn dance and hold a toddler's attention span). It's a small studio space on the Hill near some great places like Little Pearl and Emilie's. The front room has cubbies for your stuff and the backroom is the large dance studio with a restroom in the way back. The instructors are kind and great teachers. Our class starts with introductions, reading a book, and then doing some ballet routines in a way that's engaging to toddlers. Our toddler is engaged the entire time and looks forward to going back the next week.
Response: Hi Austin! Thank you for your kind review. We are so happy that you are enjoying classes at Studio One!

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!

DanceSport Dupont Circle: what do users think?


Jason Janke: We found Terry with only one month until our wedding day, and over just a few classes he worked with us to choreograph an elegant, yet achievable first dance for us (we came in with no prior experience). We even changed songs after our first lesson, and he was able to quickly change the style of dance to better match the different pace of song. We had fun with the resulting dance, which impressed our guests and brought out some tears. The space could occasionally get crowded with other classes going on, but it was never an issue. We were happy with everything, and enjoyed our time learning/practicing.

Adam Abramson: Terry is very knowledgeable and has good tips. It’s a fun class that I’ll definitely use at my wedding. My only gripe is that if there’s other classes going on, he’s really soft spoken so it’s hard to hear. Would recommend though! Especially if you want a choreographed dance.

Sharon Williams: Love Earl! He is a great instructor! Also love the salsa club he took us to to apply what we have learned. Looking forward to the next class!

Sam Young: Terry was great however it was very difficult to hear with two other classes happening simultaneously in the same room with their own music.

Sarah Pearce: Terry choreographed our first dance for our wedding this past November and our guests loved it! It was one of the highlights of our reception. We never anticipated that our guests would be cheering for us! Neither one of us have taken lessons in the past, so we were anxious going into our first lesson. But Terry made us feel very comfortable and was very patient with us. He's very creative and provided a few options/moves for us to use based on what we preferred. We loved going home to practice - it was such a fun experience during the high-stress time of planning the rest of the wedding. I highly recommend!

Alessandro Ghidini: I have attended DanceSport Dupont Circle for the past 2 years. The dance area is spacious and divided by mirror screens to allow concurrent classes. I have taken ballroom lessons with Terry Chasteen with a focus on International style. Terry is the most patient and competent instructor one can desire. His own experience as competitor and judge at national and international competitions makes him perfectly suited to train and prepare a couple for the world of competitions. I was thus able to compete at a few National and one international competitions. It was a fantastic experience and Terry was there until the end to support me and my partner in our endeavor. I have also observed Terry interacting with couples who want to prepare for wedding events, and he is excellent at putting together a choreography that suits the music chosen by the bride (either for the dance with the groom or with the bride's father), as well as their dancing skills. You will not regret your decision to start dancing at DanceSport Dupont Circle!

Elsa Peraldi: Luca was our teacher for our wedding dance. He was great!!! Not only did he worked with us to have a great choreography, but he was also super patient with us and help us navigate the process at times when we would be stressed. He is really flexible and works with you to find a time that works for you. Couldn't recommend more!

Louis L.: OMG, Terry is adorable. Clearly, he eats, sleeps and breathes everything related to dancing. I have known him to dance with students late into the evening--perhaps having a power snack in between--but never skipping a beat! He is patient and accommodating. My dance partner and I won 3 silver medals after Terry choreographed four fantastic Latin dance routines in preparation for our dance competition in 2018. I am forever grateful to Terry for his training.

Jonathan Dickinson: We arrived 10 minutes early, and then waited 15 minutes after our appointment time. The instructor ignored us for the couple ahead of us. We planned our day and evening around this lesson.

John Farr: Great job of teaching the first dance wedding basics

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!

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!

Response: Omg Chantale!! Thank you so much for this, we're so happy to hear the positive impact our classes have had on you!

Dana Frund: Since moving to DC last year, joining DivaDance has been one of the best decisions I have made! I love the community feel, and all the instructors and members are so sweet and fun! If you’re looking to make friends, join a community, build confidence, or dance your worries away, this is the perfect place!
Response: Thank you so much for this review Dana! We LOVE having you in the community!

Response: Whitney thank you soooo much! We loveeeee having you in classes.

Melodi McSweeney: I've loved every class I've taken with Diva Dance. I did the 10 week dance course in fall 2019 and absolutely loved every minute of it. I met wonderful people who I am still in touch with. I also had my bachelorette party with Diva Dance and would do it all again in a heart beat. The culture at Diva Dance is to have fun and build confidence, so there is never any critiquing and the environment stays comfortable. The dances are also very diverse, so you can get a little bit of anything you like. I can go on, but in short, I can't wait until the pandemic is over so I can go back to dancing with Diva Dance.
Response: Melodi we have loved having you in the community! Thank you for the positive review!

Breanne Stockslager: I have nothing but great things to say about my experience with DivaDance! My group did a Beyonce themed "sip and slay" class for a Bachelorette party and had a fantastic time. I would highly recommend DivaDance to anyone who wants to hold a party, event, or even just to go for a fun cardio workout! The package that we purchased came with champagne and fun decorations as well as the instructor emailing us our very own music video which is a pretty fun memory to have for a bachelorette party! The choreography is tailored to whatever level of skill your group has, ours was definitely beginner! LOL. Highly recommend!
Response: Yay Breanne! Thank you so much for this review. We LOVED partying with your group!

THAT EWE GAL: I love it !! Great teachers, great energy, amazing choreographies ! Highly recommended
Response: We love you too! Thank you so much!

Cheryl Somers: It looked like a nice place only went in to check it out
Response: Thanks Cheryl! Come back!

Cheryl Somers: Seemed like a nice place only there for a few minutes
Response: Thanks Cheryl! Hope to see you again soon!

Chevy Chase Ballroom: what do users think?


Ariel Kramer O'Brien: Dima helped us put together an amazing first dance on our wedding day. He has the perfect balance of humor and direction, and it made the whole process quite enjoyable.

Rachel Unger: My husband and I had a such wonderful experience taking wedding dance lessons this past summer at Chevy Chase Ballroom with Dmytro Churchun for our September wedding. In fact, it was our favorite part of wedding planning and one of the best parts of our wedding day. We miss CC ballroom already! With ZERO prior social dance experience together, we were able to perform a hybrid foxtrot and swing dance 2:30 min routine that was a fantastic surprise for our family and friends. Dmytro was super encouraging and the most patient with our complete lack of rhythm and synchronization. He helped create a dance that was fun and very “us.” In the three months leading up to our wedding, we ended up taking 7-9 lessons though I’m sure most couples don’t need that many, we loved having the lessons to break up the tedium of other wedding planning tasks. We felt it was excellent value and well worth the investment. Dmytro and Irina are top notch at what they do and you cannot go wrong with Chevy Chase Ballroom no matter your skill level or time constraints!

Elizabeth Bellingrath McClure: Chevy Chase Ballroom is exceptional in terms of their dancing program. The atmosphere is friendly, fun, and inviting. Inviting to dance at every level, every style of dance. Dmitriy is very patient and thorough in terms of technique, style and grace. He is a very inspiring instructor. I would recommend Chevy Chase Ballroom to all levels of ballroom dancers, especially to the novice who never danced a step. In no time, you will be gracefully dancing on the dance floor like Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers--really!

Michael B. Rubin: The ballroom and floor are very nice. The social parties have good food but typically not many very good dancers. Lessons are expensive. You can get the same lessons at other dance studios in the DC area for 25% or more less with just as good teachers. You can get group lessons through your county department of recreation for more than 50% less. If you like to attend fancy, expensive events CCB has them. I no longer attend CCB socials as I used to because the owner Irina does not understand American culture. She insulted me several times thinking I was trying to steal students from CCB, which I was not. She does not understand that a man asking a woman for her phone number so that he can invite her out to dance does not mean he is trying to take her away from CCB. I assume that Irina's paranoid behavior is due to her growing up in Ukraine under Russian domination, where people spied on their neighbors. That is not life in the U.S. By the way, there are several other ballroom dance studios in the DC area I would recommend including Hollywood Ballroom in Silver Spring, MD, Avant Garde in Rockville, MD, In Step School of Dance in Fairfax, VA, and Elegant Dance Studio in Fairfax, VA. I have been ballroom dancing in the Washington, DC area since 1985. I have NEVER been insulted at ANY dance studio by ANYONE except for at Chevy Chase Ballroom.

Ellen Coppley: My husband and I are social dancers and wanted to learn a few more moves. We signed up for ten classes and have gotten hooked. We have had three different instructors over time and each one has brought something special to the experience. We go during the day during the week so we can't speak to what it is like in the evenings or on weekends, but our experience has been excellent and we've learned a ton. We particularly love Irina, owner and champion dancer, and appreciate her natural enthusiasm and support.

Karina Valverde: Salsa Sundays! Starting at 5 the music entices to the salsa classes (rueda style). After the classes they have a social. There are many other dance styles and classes to sign up for (ballroom style) but I've only checked out the salsa.

Vahan Kharazyan: I Love CCB ballroom dance studio and there service.

Andrea Cas: (Translated by Google) Excellent dance hall, comfortable, spacious, good floor, excellent organization and good dancers to milonga! (Original) Salón de baile excelente, cómodo, amplio, buen piso, excelente organización y buenos bailarines para milonguear !!!

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!

Dance Exchange: what do users think?


Elisa Ferrante: My little goes to dance exchange for lessons with Ms. Jessica and she loves it. The studios are great and the teacher is the most patient person with a class full of toddlers to manage, which she does with a lot of love and kindness.

Cee Dee: This was my first time joining my son for the African Dance classes at this location. It was fast paced but I enjoyed the portion I could keep up with. It is a family affair so be ready to join the family as they invite you to other dance class locations. They like to hang out after class sometimes too. I think I will be doing the virtual class with them for a while until I get caught up on the dance moves.

Michele Walsh, ASL Interpreter: Amazing classes offered here, I learned so much. Great instruction- very friendly & understanding.

Yingxi Rona Shi: Used the room for kids music together. The space is big and clean. The room can be separated into several smaller spaces.

Kristen Bishel Browne: A big black box style space. We went for A Fresh Taste, collaboration show with Lab X. It was informative and interesting in the beginning, then turned into an audience participation improv/movement workshop of sorts that I was not interested in at all (especially because the event was not marketed that way at all). Probably won't be returning for any future performances.

Ken Manheimer: All the people who work for Dance Exchange love participatory contemporary dance - dancing and fostering opportunities for everyone to be involved in dancing. This is a good thing if you like dance and like dancing! It's even more of a good thing if you like it, but don't know how to get involved - helping people in the community get involved in dancing is the reason for and business of the Dance Exchange.
Response: Thank you so much, Ken, for your generosity and for all that you do for the DC dance community!

Stephanie Sutherland: Amazing dance studio that is run by a great staff who are warm and welcoming to all. Studios are beautiful and fantastic to dance in, with Marley/spring floors, and big open spaces with no columns. The main studio is a dancer's dream to dance in, huge!
Response: Thank you so much, Stephanie, for your generosity! We hope to see you in the studios again!

Patrick Earle: Wonderful place that gives our daughters a safe place to explore their creative side through dance. Amazingly warm and supportive staff.

Bikem Ozturk: Dance Exchange is my second home, with great staff who is dedicated to community building through art making and dance...Their philosophy every body can dance, is very valid and realized in this magical space we call Dance Exchange...Come and check it out in Takoma Park, walking distance to metro, come and your life will change...A class for everyone...Blessings, Bikem...

Angie Forester: They have great classes, with some great instructors. You'll pick up fast with how they teach. They have great deals for beginners too.

Pole Pressure: what do users think?


Miss Candace: I have enjoyed my pole journey here. The instructors are encouraging and knowledgeable and I have found the classes to be fun of the type of positive energy I need to get my feet off the ground. There are a variety of options for all levels & they offer private and virtual lessons as well. The price is worth it. I’d definitely recommend joining this studio if you’re looking to build your skills or your confidence.
Response: Thank you for the lovely words ❤❤

Aminah Imani: Do not book here. Poor customer service. I booked a class over a week prior to the class. Paid in full. A day before the class I was informed the class was cancelled via email. Then I get a text saying they don’t issue refunds and I have to fulfill the class with them regardless of my schedule. I just wanted to try this company out but after this experience, no thank you. To infringe inconveniences on customers shows a huge lack of regard. Customer service is very important, if you have to cancel then you should ask the customer how they was to proceed in such event. You can’t force them to rebook and still do business with you especially due to your error and change of schedule. A lot of these places have policies if you are late and if you cancel last minute but don’t uphold themselves to the same esteem. They offered to rebook but I already looked at the schedule and during the day all beginner classes are booked til end of April so there would be no use for me. This is probably why the policies are geared to their benefit because they pull stunts like this often. Save yourself the money and time.
Response: Hey Aminah I am sorry you did not have a good experience. As I stated on the phone we had an emergency that came up and had to cancel the class. I offered to assist you in rebooking a class and extending the pass out so I can get you into a class. As it states on our website and receipt we do not provide refunds. I am still MORE than willing to work with you to find an acceptable solution. If you are still interested please reach out devon@polepressure.com 202-667-7653

Frances Raybaud: Pole Pressure is full of teachers who are gracious, patient, skilled, and keep things lighthearted while putting me through the most exercise I’ve ever done in my life! I have so much fun in every class- I just hope they expand their class offerings to more in the evenings to accommodate more working stiffs like me! :D
Response: ❤️ Thank you for the lovely review

S.M. P.: Awesome pole studio! The instructors are good and there are a variety of teaching styles too. I love that I can attend classes online from the other side of the USA too! VERY reasonably priced and lots of classes to pick from. SO GLAD I FOUND THIS PLACE!
Response: ❤❤

Anndria Thomas: Best time ever, thank you all so much for helping make our bachelorette trip amazing!!! The girls, the bride and I absolutely loved it. The instructor was amazing. I will definitely recommend you guys and I will be returning!!!

Indya Heyward: Didn’t get a chance to dance. had a open session w/o instructor and due their late policy weren’t able to get in. W/o refund or credit if you are some one who is late or it’s an accident/ parking issue/ life just turn around and save the hassle as no one will be available at the locked door. May be a good experience but I wouldn’t know. Not sure if I’ll risk going back as I’ve already lost my initial amount for class. Smart. but seems like a ploy for money. Update: was given a voucher and enjoyed my open session. was able to play my own music and rock out recommend just BE ON TIME…
Response: Hey Indya! Sorry you didn't have a great experience we make our late cancel policy 110% clear in our website, class description, emails/texts (sent immediately when you book, 1 day, 24 hours, and 1 hour before class) and notices on door. We do not have additional staff to open the door for late arrivals. I will offer you the option of one time of rebooking your open practice class. I'll reach out to follow up.

Ariel Kersky: This review is long overdue. I cannot stress enough how fantastic Pole Pressure is as a business. Prior to moving overseas I was lucky enough to take a couple pole and hoop classes at the studio. Every single class was not only fun, but an incredible workout. Even in the COVID digital era I was able to take an online class, Twerkshop with Keabra. I had so much fun. Keabra is such a fabulous instructor, I highly recommend people take any of her stretch/handstand/twerk classes. Or if Keabra is in DC take one of her pole classes in the studio. You won't regret it. The owner of Pole Pressure Devon is also wonderful. Super responsive and communicative to emails. Really cares about the business and those who teach and take classes. If you are in DC take a class at the studio. If you aren't in DC take one of Pole Pressure's many online classes. I can't wait to get back and take an in-person class. Thank you Devon for giving us such a wonderful place to work hard and have fun.
Response: ❤❤❤❤❤ Thank you

Massimiliano Bissa: Before starting my experience at pole pressure I used to go to other pole studios. Pole pressure is definitely better for many reasons. I particularly appreciate the many classes available that cover all the levels, from beginner to advanced, whereas other studios have only few choices. It may be a little bit more expensive than other but you are sure to have your pole without sharing it with other 2/3 people. Instructors are amazing... Really well trained and they follow all the people in the class to help them, and also very supportive. So far my favorite studio on DC!
Response: Thank you so much for the review

Stephanie Patrice: Well all I can say is “it’s worth every penny” this is my 3rd try of trying to find a class during covid and in the past 2 weeks I’ve learned more and became a lot more confident in myself. I love the diversity of the teachers and learning different techniques and routines. The library is a plus!
Response: So glad you are enjoying the classes and on demand library :)

Cara Weathers: Amazing studio! Super fun instructors and warm welcoming 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!

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

Kai Walker: I've dances at a few other places but this was by far one of the more friendly and relaxed places I have ever danced at. Everyone was very helpful and I never felt self conscious about my dancing so it was easy to have a good time! The day I went it was extremely hot so everyone got very sweaty so be prepared for that! Also I would recommend bringing your own water, but if you dont they have a water cooler downstairs in the kitchen.

황일룡: (Translated by Google) I don't speak English and I visited for the first time but thank you for your kind guidance. I wanted to take a swing class in the US, but I didn't speak English, so I gave up. It's an atmosphere of social dancing and everyone has a pleasant look. (Original) 영어도 안되고 처음 방문하였지만 친절히 안내를 해주셔서 감사합니다. 미국의 스윙강습을 들어보고 싶었지만 영어가 안되어 그냥 포기하였다. 소셜댄스를 즐기는 분위기이며 모두 즐거운 표정으로 추었다.

Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Silver Spring: what do users think?


Rachel Grossmann: The staff is amazingly friendly and patient and they have a lot of positive energy. Steve in particular is good at finding specific analogies that the students can relate to. I've improved my dancing so much in the short time I've been there. No other studio in the area that I have found offers nearly as many group classes and practice parties as Arthur Murray.

Yuan Cui: Arthur Murray Silver Spring is such a wonderful place to learn and have fun. Every instructor there is professional, encouraging, and kind. I studied here for 10 weeks over the summer, and I've become a much better dancer by participating in both private lessons, group lessons, and parties. This place is not only a dance studio, but also a heartwarming community, where you can receive and give so much love :) A special shout-out to Taylor and Ivanna for their patience with me in private lessons!

Jessica Oliver: I found a Groupon for Arthur Murray and it was an awesome deal! My (now) husband and I took a couple of private dance lessons a week out from our wedding. We worked with Sydney and she was amazing at teaching us a few steps for our first dance and making us feel a lot more comfortable about it. The classes were also a lot of fun and everyone who works there is extremely friendly and welcoming; I definitely plan on going back again some time! Thank you guys for your help!
Response: Thank you for the review! We love hearing that you had a great time!

Wendy Lukehart: I have been attending the Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Silver Spring for 3+ years and am having an amazing experience. The combination of lessons, group classes, and parties is a wonderful way to learn and practice new dance patterns and then enjoy the fruits of your labor. The teachers break information down into manageable bits and then encourage and lead as you grow in your skill. They couldn't be nicer, and the other students are friendly and kind as well. It's a great place to meet new people, learn a valuable skill, and enjoy the pleasure of moving to music. The studio immediately went virtual during the initial stages of the pandemic, so we didn't miss a beat, and they have taken all the necessary steps to safely re-open in careful stages. Join us--it's so much fun!
Response: Thank you for the glowing review Wendy! We love having you as part of the Arthur Murray Silver Spring Family!!

Megane Muluh: Sydney was amazing. I loved her energy, excitement, and patience. She definitely convinced me and my fiancé to take some more classes for our wedding.
Response: Thanks Megane! We are so happy you joined us!!

Carolyn Olsen: We love the staff and instructors at Arthur Murray, Silver Spring! Everyone is so friendly. The instructors are very skilled and do a great job of customizing our lessons to our abilities and interests. They also have helped us by making videos of parts of our lessons so that we can practice at home. Learning to dance at Arthur Murray, Silver Spring has been lots of fun. The pandemic has been a challenging time. The staff and instructors have done an amazing job of providing a safe environment...masks, hand sanitizing, socially distancing, limiting the number of people, and cleaning. For those who may prefer them, private and group Zoom lessons are available, too.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a glowing review!

Gerri Perry: I can't think of a better way to exercise, meet people and put joy into my life. Ever since I started at Arthur Murray, my experiences have been positive in every way. No only am I doing something for my health, but I am improving my skills in dancing. With each dance I learn, I gain confidence in myself and have more fun at the dance parties. The teachers are all so professional and friendly. I would recommend this studio to anyone who wants to learn to dance and do something good for their bodies at the same time.
Response: Thanks for the great review Gerri! We love having you as part of our Arthur Murray family!

Margaret Anderson: At my request, my husband bought me dance lessons as a Christmas present. We enjoyed a series of group and individual lessons from very professional and fun teachers near our home in Silver Spring. Arthur Murray Dance Studio instructors were fun and relatable that it was absolutely enjoyable. We picked up some good dance steps and like practicing dancing together at home.
Response: Thank you for your great review! It's our privilege to share our love of dancing!

Billy Patterson: If you want to learn to dance and meet new people Arthur Murray Dance Center Silver Spring is where you want to go. I have been going there for several months and the experience continues to be delightful. The facilities are first-rate. The instructors are exceptional and caring and the whole environment is welcoming. The learning experience is comfortable in that you can go to weekly group classes and practice parties to augment your private lessons. There is also a weekly dance where you can put it all together and just have a good time. You can do as little or as much as you like. If you want a comfortable, fun place to learn to dance, join me at Arthur Murray Dance Center Silver Spring.

Sol Lopez: In addition to your private lesson, there are several group lessons offered each week. Group lessons are a great way to meet other dancers and practice in a comfortable and non-judgemental atmosphere. It's easy to form friendships with students of all levels and practice parties are an opportunity you have to put into practice all that you learn in the lessons. Arthur Murray gives you a solid foundation on which you can continue to improve your dance skills.

Maryland Youth Ballet: what do users think?


Carolina C: I take adult classes at MYB and my experience there has been truly wonderful. I used to go to the Washington Ballet (TWB), a place I like very much and hold dear to my heart, but since I moved to Maryland, the commute became more complicated. As it is the case with many dancers, we tend to become set on our routines, so I was a bit concerned about finding a place I liked as much as TWB. A few people recommended me MYB as the teachers, level of the classes, and live piano accompaniment were similar to what I was accustomed to. And so far, MYB has far exceeded my expectations. First, the teachers are excellent. They bring a wide array of styles so it’s very interesting to experience different classes. Not only their knowledge and techniques are impecable, but they are kind, compassionate, fun and are very skilled at teaching adults, which requires a certain level of finesse and understanding. I have been taking classes mostly with Susan Gresko, Jennifer Ferguson, Deidre Byrne and Lisae Jordan. Because I love their styles and the schedule works really well for me, I mostly take Susan Gresko and Jennifer Ferguson’s classes, and I am extremely happy with them. Susan has awaken in me that fire and excitement I recall having in my teenage years ballet classes. Her classes offer that challenge you need to see tangible improvements. Jennifer is extremely sweet and has the ability to make everyone in class feel relevant and make personalized corrections. So thank you so much to both of you! Second, most of the adult classes are scheduled at convenient times in evening weekdays and during the weekend, which are great for working professionals. Third, the pricing is very reasonable and the live music accompaniment is absolutely stellar. I recognize many of the pianists from TWB. Fourth, the studios are ample and clean, most receptionists are friendly and helpful, and the online booking system works very well. My one recommendation is to consider offering a more ample package to purchase classes. Currently there are only 2 options: a 10 class package and monthly unlimited. This is a bit limiting for people who want to buy more than 10 classes but can’t use them during a month. Lastly, please consider offering an adult summer intensive at MYB. Many of us would absolutely love attending such a program at MYB, and unfortunately no good programs are available in the area. Thanks so much again and keep the wonderful work!

Eugene Turk: It is a wonder how many stellar teachers and musicians are collected in MYB. Fantastic dedication to their craft, and such beautiful accompanying piano. My hips are more flexible now, and I feel as if dancing has given my life new meaning during this trying time of my life! Thanks MYB!

Nicole Konstantopoulos: So much talent in one place! If you are looking for exceptional ballet training, this is the place to go! The staff is amazing! They meet each dancer where they are and help them grow. They also are an amazing community. All of the teachers and alumni are always willing to help the current dancers. They are a wealth of advice and information!

Samantha Encarnacion: They could improve by: one actually listen to children concerns, not everyone learns the same. They are not even willing to listen to any accommodations especially due to covid. I inquired about a possible one day trial, I didn't state anything it absolutely being free or not. I clearly stated the facts of my child maybe not being able to virtually grasp the lessons, seeing as she is very hands on and active in learning. She is more of a in person active listener. They clearly state no Free trial classes. The email was very informal back to me, nor there wasn't any “trying to understand” the meaning of my concern. It is not a Ballet Academy I would ever considered again. It also doesn’t seem diverse & as if they would consent to other “Non Diverse” issues. Thank you all and I would really re-considered not enrolling a young child until your child can maturely verbally express themselves after the age of 8-9 years of age. This is from me a Public Education teacher. Thank you.

Luca Maro: This is a fantastic place. The studio is very nice and well kept in a very nice and convenient area. The teachers are top notch. They are very good and explaining and ensuring everyone is getting the most out of their classes. There's also a great selection of classes.

Michal Boyars: My daughter LOVES her dance classes at MYB. She is normally shy but really comes out of her shell in dance class. We can't wait to sign her up for next year, too!

Donna Reese: My daughter studied at MYB from age eight through her high school graduation. She danced in college on a dance scholarship. This is, by far, the most professional ballet school in the area. Her training was outstanding.

Hilary Hemmatipour: My daughter has been attending little dancer classes for 6 months and has learned nothing. Additionally, they don't do recitals, and the atmosphere is very stuffy, stuck up, and rude. Expensive for no good reason.

Monica B.: This is the worst ballet place i've ever been; my daughter signed up for the audition and had the time scheduled, she was so excited about that; we showed up at the studio then found out no audition. They knew this audition will not take place and not even bother to inform us. What a customer service.

linnea allison: I love this place! They always make me feel so welcome. I highly recommend this amazing ballet school.
