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

Sarah Close: We came in for a dance lesson three weeks before our wedding without any clue and wanting a few tips for our first dance. Victor very quickly helped us pick out a dance and tailored his instruction to the ways that we both learn best (impressive, considering he had just met us!). Victor taught us in a very humorous and compassionate manner that made the entire experience fun. He also provided a number of helpful tips and reminders for our wedding day, beyond just the first dance, that really helped us stay calm and focused. We would highly recommend ALL2DANCE to anyone, whether or not they have a wedding to prepare for- it was a great experience!

Olivia Davis: My husband and I began taking private dance lessons with Ann at ALL2Dance several months before our wedding and loved every minute of them. We came out of our lessons feeling very confident about our rumba skills for our 'first dance' (no choreography needed!) and felt that this was generally such a fun and different way to spend time together. We'll definitely be continuing our lessons with them beyond the wedding!

scottskywalker21: Had a quick lesson before my wedding in a week! Never danced before in my life, but Vic was a true professional. He's probably the best couch or instructor I've ever had in my life, and I can tell that he really loves to teach. He makes learning to dance easy, even for someone with two left feet(me). Excellent instructor, hands down!!

Michael Koppes: Victor was a terrific instructor. He told us he would get us there and he did. My wife and I found our weekly dance classes a great stress relief while planning our wedding!

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.

CityDance - Friendship Heights | Washington, DC: what do users think?


Bronwyn Clark: I enrolled my two daughters in a week long summer camp, and was delighted to see the performance at the end of the week! Students learned a choreographed piece in ballet, jazz, hip hop, African, and modern dance, and students of different skill levels were all able to demonstrate very impressive skills and confidence after only five days. Each day my daughters were excited to share what they'd learned, and looked forward to the next day. It was a creative, expressive, safe place to learn. Ivy and Sabrina were excellent instructors and accommodating of student's unique needs. We will certainly return for additional classes/camps.

Kathleen S.: My first-grade daughter has enjoyed her beginning ballet classes at Citydance POP. The instructors are wonderful at connecting with the young dancers. I’ve also attended an adult workshop, which was a great as well.

Doug Hartley: The organizers do an outstanding job of teaching dance to all children in the DC area

Rebecca Unruh: Fantastic dance studio with amazing teachers. My daughter loves it!

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!

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!

Chantale love: Before I join diva dance I was working on my confidence and I most say I’m a whole new women after joining. I learn different dance moves and met a lot of good people. I am having an amazing experience.
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!

April Tran: So happy I joined this community. Everyone is so kind and every dance is well instructed. Definitely recommend if you're looking to build your confidence and relieve some stress with dancing!
Response: Thank you April for sharing what our classes have done for ya!

Whitney Franklin: DivaDance DC has been and AMAZING EXPERIENCE! The instructors, the culture, the support, the COMMUNITY! DivaDance has definitely helped me boost my confidence as a human being, woman, and dancer! I am grateful for DivaDance DC and look forward to future classes!!!
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

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!

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!

Marcia de Jesus: I joined Salsa with Silvia in its Georgia Avenue location in January of 2018. During the first 5-6 months of 2018, I was at the studio pretty much every weeknight and all day on Saturday. The studio offers an unlimited-class plan, and you bet I signed up for that and took full advantage of it. My plan of taking as many classes as possible in a short amount of time to improve my dancing skills fast was one of the reasons why I was at the studio all the time when I first joined. The other reason was the people I found there – and they are the reason I keep going to this day. Incredible human beings have worked at SWS over the years, who have helped me feel comfortable as I engaged in a new and at times challenging activity. Among the front-office people, I must give a shout out to Gary. For a long time, he was the face of SWS for me, the person I reached out to if I needed anything. I miss you at the Georgia Avenue location! Among the instructors, I’m sorry for picking favorites (all instructors are great in their own way), but Joffre has always been my guy. Not only is Joffre a very good dancer, but he is also an excellent instructor. He knows how to break down and explain the moves (including teaching how to respect personal space and make sure nobody gets hurt while executing moves); he meets the students where they are (skill-wise) so nobody feels discouraged nor bored; and he tries to make sure everyone is having fun as they work on their dance skills. I felt challenged in Joffre’s classes, but also reassured whenever things got difficult and potentially frustrating. He has certainly helped me become a better dancer and I am grateful for that! Finally, SWS is the place where I found a safe, fun, open community and made very good friends. SWS has become a part of my life, a place I associate with happy things!
Response: Thank you so much Marcia! Your kind words are greatly appreciated.

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

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?

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!

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.

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.

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!

Alina Trifonova: I am very pleased with the Dance Sport Academy services. My 3 y.o. daughter is taking baby ballet classes with Ms. Vera, who is exceptional in professionalism and communicating with small kids. Her lessons are diversified in the types of activities and movements and geared towards accommodating the needs of the little ones, introducing them to the world of dance and music. Great experience! If you have an active toddler, I strongly recommend classes with the DC DanceSport Academy, and especially with Ms. Vera!

Rachael Osborne: Lydia's studio is fantastic! The coaches are very talented and she offers a wide variety of group classes. I've been going to her studio for years and the classes are always fun and exciting!
Response: Thank you, Rachel! We are lucky to have the best and most dedicated students. You are our motivation and inspiration! ❤️

Sophia Jones: This studio provides some of the highest quality dance training I have ever experienced due to the expert instruction. I have trained with Lydia for many years and cannot wait to come back to classes in person! Highly recommend to anyone interested in trying ballroom or looking to advance their practice.

Monique Kramer: I absolutely LOVE this dance studio!! The group classes and instructors are top quality. Lydia, the owner, is friendly, cheerful, positive, and very patient. She is always bringing new ideas to the studio via workshops, guest instructors, special events, and show cases. Katie and the rest of the staff are always pleasant. I wish I could spend my entire day here!!

JUDY JAMES: DC DanceSport Academy provides quality instruction to all levels of dancers in a lovely and professional studio. Highly recommend this studio for all those wanting to learn to dance, regardless of age and dance experience, but especially for the serious dancers who are involved in competing and performing. Lydia organizes several elite workshops, and dance camps a year for both adult students and for her much younger students, and brings in the best world champions to teach at these workshops. The group classes offered are exceptional, ranging from basic technique classes to more advanced master classes, and practice rounds. Lydia is an amazing, encouraging, enthusiastic, technical, and talented teacher, and what I love most about Lydia, is that she never stops learning and growing as an instructor. Whether it’s a private lesson with Lydia, or participating in a group class, watching Lydia’s body movements, and her flair for styling, is inspirational for me. As a woman, learning from a woman is equally important for me. Lydia will make you feel beautiful and special, while inspiring you to move your body in ways you never thought possible.

Ksenia Peguero: Best dance studio I've ever been a part of. The instructors are top-notch, teaching lots of technique and fun moves in advanced classes. The students make a great community, it's always a pleasure to practice together with strong dances. The studio itself is beautiful, has gorgeous space, really nice floor, two walls of mirrors, and no columns! I've been dancing here since the studio opened, and it's a pleasure to see how it grows.

Denitsa R: I can't say enough good things about the studio, the coaches, the owner, the staff, and the quality of training. Truly superb experience all around! From a nice, clean studio with the highest quality dance floor, to courteous and friendly staff, to a variety of the best coaches in the world. You can expect to see world champions from any style, age, and background teaching here on a regular basis. And, if you truly want to learn how to dance and dance your best for any occasion, then you have to come to DCDA. You will be well taken care of from the very first second, and you will find a second home in this studio. Whether you are a competitor or are just looking to prepare for a social event (or wedding), give Lydia and her team a try. You won't regret it!

bob Hsieh: The very best of learning experience with a world class instructors. Additional visits for seminars by other world class dancers. I feel lucky and happy to be part of Lydia’s teaching world. My fellow students all love her and the teaching we get.

Denis Babichenko: My children have attended classes at the DC DanceSport Academy for years now. The classes are intense and instructors are demanding, but, because of that, my children's growth as dancers is absolutely tremendous. More importantly, they really enjoy dancing and look forward to advancing their skills by learning new and challenging routines.

Uttara Vaidya: The place to live and breathe dancing. Lydia's training is amazing, starting from group classes that gives helpful information for all levels (intermediate to pro) in a way that is easy to absorb to private training that has help us grow tremendously in our dancing as professionals.

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!

Austin Chang: Abraham and Regina are excellent teachers. They are very friendly and accommodating to new dancers. The group lessons and social dancing offered at this studio are a lot of fun and are a great value. I would recommend attending them, even if you take classes and/or dance elsewhere.
Response: Hello Austin! Thank you so much for your beautiful feedback of our classes here at Crown Dance Studio. We love having you and everyone in our Bachata and Salsa Classes on Monday night here at Crown Dance Studio. You're amazing and we look forward to watching and helping you with all your dancing needs. Cheers to more fun and exciting times to come 😁🕺🏾 Sincerely, Abraham Sannoh 🙏🏾

Elena Filimonova: This is not ONE of the best studios, this IS the best! Abraham is the instructor from God, has a great team! I never thought I would take up dancing.... Everything is well structured, well organised and punctual. Everyone is SUPER friendly! For a beginner it is very important not to step away because the body does not have that movement memory yet...CROWN DANCE studio definitely will be best for the beginners! (BUT not only!) They teach you to ENJOY dancing, not just steps. The decision to join the CROWN DANCE STUDIO was one of my best! 101 percent recommend it to all! All the world!
Response: Hello Elena, Thank you so much for your amazing and heartfelt feedback. Having you in our Bachata & Salsa classes on Mondays is a joy. We're truly grateful to you for your support, commitment, and beautiful energy. I have truly enjoy teaching you and I look forward to seeing the maturation of your dancing. With great appreciation and love. Abraham Sannoh :)

Kylie Sparks: This is a really fun studio. I took two private bachata lessons with Regina and she's great! In only two sessions I learned how to be a much better follower, how to soften my arms, do turns, do the sweetheart, and the windmill. Everyone in the studio is friendly and from observing other lessons, all of the teachers seem fabulous. There's a Monday night beginner group class I'm looking forward to trying. The studio is easy to get to with plenty of parking.
Response: Hello Kylie, Thank you so much for your beautiful feedback 😊 we appreciate it. Regina is amazing and one of our best. She's great at what she does and we're truly blessed to have here 💖 we're glad you you enjoyed your sessions and we look forward to seeing you in our Bachata and Salsa group classes 🙏🏾 Sincerely, Abraham 🤗❤

Mark Komi: After my (now) wife and I decided on our wedding song, we quickly realized that we had no clue how to actually dance to it... After looking around at several dance studios in the Fairfax area, Crown looked like it had potential and we decided to go for the complimentary first lesson. We were very happy that we did and afterwards we didn't hesitate to sign up for one of their wedding dance lesson packages. We got to work with Abraham for our dance and he was fantastic! Not only is he an amazing dancer, but he is also a great teacher. He listened to our song and choreographed our dance - custom tailored to our music. After 12 lessons (with an unexpected year break in the middle due to Covid) we went from being novice dancers with zero experience to being very confident and excited going into our first dance. Overall the whole experience was a lot of fun. We were super happy with our finished product and we absolutely recommend Crown Dance Studio if you want your first dance to be something special that you will always remember.
Response: Mark, Thank you so much for your beautiful feedback on Crown Dance Studio. We had a great time working with you on your wedding first dance and we truly appreciate you making us part of your amazing life journey ❤ You're beautiful people who we had the privilege of choreographing for. Thank you again for choosing Crown Dance Studio for your first dance routine. We wish you peace, joy, and prosperity in your new chapter together. ✨ Sincerely, Abraham 🤗

John Hanna: We worked with Allison for our wedding. She was great! Had a lot of fun and lots of laughs along the way. Very patient and we feel so ready. Highly recommend.
Response: Hello John, Thank you so much for your beautiful feedback of the service yiu received. Allison is amazing and we're truly blessed to have her as member of our dance family home. It was also great to see you and yiur fiance work on your dance today. You guys looked amazing 👏🏾 congratulations on your wedding and thank you for making us part of your special day 😊

Richard Ortegon: Crown dance studio hosts great lessons for beginners and intermediate dancers. My wife has been attending for about a year and when I attended recently I felt that the transition from small understandable moves to a full routine by the end of the class felt very rewarding. I have attended the salsa and bachata classes and recommend other people curious about starting to dance to come and try it out.
Response: Richard, It was so lovely to have you in our Intermediate Bachata and Salsa Classes here at Crown Dance Studio on Wednesday. It's been wonderful having your wife in our Classes and as much as we have heard about you, it was wonderful to finally have you in the class with us! 👊😁 thank you again for recommending Crown Dance Studio and thank you for attending. We look forward to seeing you in our Intermediate Bachata and Salsa Classes again when you visit next time. Thank you 🙌 ~Abraham Sannoh

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!

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 :)
