My husband and I had the pleasure of working with her for our “first dance”. My husband is NOT A dancer and had no interest in learning a first dance, let alone taking weekly dance lessons leading up to our wedding day. HOWEVER, Tara was able to get him on board, and kept our weekly lessons fun and productive! I’ve had other dance instructors and cannot say enough about Tara. She’s a joy to work with and keeps you coming back feeling accomplished and excited!
With short notice (6 weeks) before our wedding, Ms. Nicole quickly came up with a unique dance that she felt like we could learn in the timeframe and would represent our personalities. On the day of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch and we have gotten countless comments about how our first dance was one-of-a-kind.
Tara - you helped to ignite a passion in me I didn’t know existed! PERSONALIZED instruction by a seasoned, caring patient instructor to fit to YOUR needs, in YOUR environment on YOUR time with or without a partner. Time flys when you are dancing and listening to music because it is FUN!! Don’t wait! Book a session with Tara - you will not regret it!!
