    "I have no dance experience and I completed the absolute beginner club dance/hip-hop class with studio owner Jessica Hayden. It was a small class of only 5-6 ppl with plenty of individual attention. As an instructor Jessica had incredible energy and even though these were evening classes, she was able to get everyone pumped up and dancing. I'm the kind of person that when I tried to dance at a club or wedding, I didn't really know what to do with my arms and my feet barely moved. I'm glad I found a class where concepts that natural dancers know intuitively were clearly explained (e.g. to nod your head, where to place your hands, etc.). She does a great job of breaking down movements by explaining them in simple descriptive terms while showing you how to do them step by step. E.g. imagine your heel is touching hot water when it hits the floor, so you know to pull it back quickly, or imagine you're picking up a suit case when you're doing shoulder dips. You dance to music that you would expect to hear at any club/bar. I can definitely say after this I am more encouraged to go out on the dance floor and try out what I picked up in class. Additionally, the 20min private lesson that comes with the class is great, but I recommend doing 1 hour in order to accelerate the learning curve. I ended up taking the class again because I wanted to reinforce what I had learned, pick up new moves, and keep getting more confident. Overall, I think this series is a great way to gain confidence and feel comfortable going out dancing and having a good time."

    "What I really appreciate about this workshop, is that it is actually applicable to life. You'll learn the moves to chain and freestyle outside of the class (e.g. club). You'll hear your favorite radio jams in class and the instructor will even take a song request. In addition to the instructor's positivity, enthusiasm, and passion, her teaching style is fantastic. When she is teaching a move, she usually breaks it down by making an analogy to a normal action. This feels less "textbook" and makes the class more enjoyable because you can easily relate to it."
