"From Here To Eternity" by Michael Peterson
The Reef Restaurant

"Thank you guys so much for all that you taught us. Your creativity and patience helped us prepare two dances which not only brought us closer together but also entertained our guests at our wedding. Our first dance was a hit. In fact at the end of the night, we had to do it again because of our guests' requests! Your choreography was very comfortable to follow and that set the mood for the rest of the night. Our special second dance "Persian dance" was also a hit. Thank you for creating a whole new style of dance just for us. We should find a name for it! Many of our guests asked David where and how he learned to dance to Persian music! We danced the night away and had a blast. Thanks again, both of you, for your patience and creativity and for being so easy to learn from. Now and for the rest of our lives, we can actually slow dance without being on top of each other's feet and "freaking" is not the only type of dance we know!:)" (Nasim & David)

We will send you some pictures once we get them.

Also the little tips (how to escort me around etc) helped a lot throughout the weekend. Eduardo looked like such a gentleman! I have a couple friends of mine, Bea and Andrew, who just got engaged.

With his left feet and non-rhythm, and me not able to define my dance "style," the club hustle routine was a GIANT success! Our families and friends were blown away by our (almost) gracefulness and stage presence. We really hammed it up (including actually performing the death drop and nightclub 2-step!). We hope to take more lessons from you in the near future (Marcus is thinking about tackling the Latin dances next). Thanks for making our 1st dance a memorable one!." (Tiffany & Marcus)

"Annie's Song" by John Denver
Surf & Sand Oceanfront Resort & Spa
Laguna Beach, Orange County

"Thank you so much for your help with the first dance for our wedding this past June at the Surf and Sand. It was definitely the high point of our wedding! We had so much fun and it totally broke the ice for the rest of our party. You can see by the expressions on the faces in the background of the photos that our family and friends totally loved it...they are even still talking about it! It is testament to your skill as teachers to be able to take two uncoordinated beginners and teach us an elegant Viennese waltz to our favorite song by John Denver in just three lessons! It was totally out of character for my husband and it really meant a lot to me that he put so much concentration and effort into it. What an incredible gift to give--that shining moment, dressed to the nines, getting twirled and dipped, and elegantly spun around the dance floor in front of a captive audience! We'll cherish that forever and can't thank you enough for your help in creating that magic moment for us!" (Christina & Rod)

"Your Everything" by Keith Urban
Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa
Dana Point, Orange County

"Thank you both so much for helping to make our wedding reception so memorable for the two of us.  We had simply planned on doing the "why" dance until my grandmother gave us wedding dance lessons as a Christmas gift.  Little did we know then that it would be a gift that would last a lifetime and would be enjoyed by so many people.  Our first dance at our wedding was so much fun and we wanted to just keep dancing together all night.  My grandmother was so impressed to see us foxtrot to a country song - she didn't think it could be done!  You two made it happen. Of all the details at our wedding, our first dance was what we got complimented on the most!  Not only are we wanting to continue taking lessons, my parents, aunt and uncle, and family friends are all taking lessons now.  Thank you for the wonderful wedding gift you gave us... our first dance as husband and wife."

"Europa" by Alturas
The Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort
Huntington Beach, Orange County

"So our wedding and honeymoon came and went and both of us had the most amazing time of our lives.  It was unbelievable and I wanted to let you know our first dance was a HUGE hit with the party.  People say that brides and grooms usually say it that weddings are a blur to them by the end of the night (time flies incredibly fast); however, I do remember many details of the wedding and I especially remember people loudly cheering us when we did the special Rudolph Valentino move and also the last part of our dance when Scott and I did the finale "dip".  We felt like movie stars!  ha ha.

People were just staring at us while we were dancing. They were surprised our first dance was not common among many wedding dances - and we had so many guests come up to us with a lot of compliments.

Thanks so much for making our day so special - you are amazing! We don't know how we could have pulled it off without you." (Barb & Scott)

"The Lovers' Waltz" by Jay Ungar & Molly Mason
St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort & Spa
Dana Point, Orange County

"It went fabulous, and we have two wonderful teachers to thank for that. While I definitely mis-stepped (oops!) during the dance and there was a "guest blockade" before our entrance, none of our guests thought anything went wrong and thought our dance was very beautiful. Especially the dip!  Everyone oohed and aahed at that point that I almost cracked up while I was being dipped. Thank god Mike held his stance and didn't crack up too much at that point and drop me! :)

And everyone said my hand movements were very graceful! Ha,ha,ha! Yes!!! I still have hope for me." (Alice & Michael)

"At Last" by Etta James
Calabasas Inn
Calabasas, Los Angeles County

"I first came to Sara as a person who had avoided the dance floor for 27 years. I had always been a wallflower who was too nervous to move to music, afraid that I would embarrass myself and my fiance who had been dancing her whole life. Sara was very patient with me and slowly eased my fears and frustrations to get me in touch with my body, hear the rhythm, and build my confidence. I now look forward to my wedding first dance which she choreographed, and no longer feel intimidated when my fiance and I dance socially.

We are so thankful that we found you guys and enjoyed every minute of learning from you. Thanks again!" (Tiffany & Scott)
