It is rare to find people that are exceptionally talented and still maintain a passion for teaching. Brian and Alison are that rare find. They are well schooled in dance and able to use any means to help their students learn and grow. They certainly have taught me the correct steps, posture, and mechanics of dance. Over time, their influence has led me to fall in love with dance.
Excellent dance instructor! Brian is a wonderful instructor and choreographer! He is interested in his students, and produces great results.
Alison is a devoted teacher who has inspired my child and filled her with confidence. She is always professional, patient and kind. She works hard to instill her technical skills, knowledge and passion for dance in her students. I have seen the growth in my daughter's abilities and her maturity over the years she has been a student with Alison. She has been a wonderful inspiration and mentor to our child.
Alison is a wonderful teacher. From a parent's standpoint, we most appreciate the sincere interest she has shown toward our daughter as a dancer as well as a person. Alison's professional experience, coupled with her ease in demonstrating ballet technique, left us confident in the excellence of her instruction. Her enthusiasm toward dance is obvious, and her attention to detail is top-notch.
We give the highest recommendation to learning ballroom with Brian. He is very professional, extraordinarily patient, and always cheerful and encouraging. Learning with Brian is great therapy and an enriching recreational experience. As a couple, Brian and Alison have inspired us to tango on, even when we tangled up!
Alison has worked with two of my daughters and their dancing challenges. Besides being a lovely dancer she is a natural instructor and has an instinctive understanding of how to approach the student to bring out the best in their technique and resolve issues which are holding them back. Because of her excellent private instruction my youngest daughter passed her British Dancing Academy exam last year with flying colors, and then was elevated to the ballet level above the level she should have transitioned to. I highly recommend Alison for private instruction.
Alison taught me privately for a few months and it was the most I have ever benefited from any private lessons. Alison is genuine about her desire to help a student grasp the beauty and technique of ballet. She takes the extra step to develop lessons and exercises that will continually help the student's improvement.
