Maria helped my husband and I with our first dance for our wedding. From day one she was professional and very outgoing. She is very easy to get along with and you can tell she has been dancing a long time. She is quick to piece together an amazing dance and helps perfect it throughout the way. I would highly recommend Maria as a dance instructor! Our 8 weeks together was unforgettable!

Mariia helped my husband and I choreograph our first dance, we gave her the song we picked and she made it happen! Mariia was so much fun to work with, both my husband and I are not very coordinated, but she made a routine for us in 5 lessons. She worked with us and what our capabilities would allow... 🙂 Her sense of humor and patience were things that we very much appreciated, we would highly recommend Mariia to anyone looking for an original first dance at their wedding!

Mariia helped my husband and I prepare our first dance for our wedding this past summer to huge success!. We booked 6 lessons to prepare for almost 4 minutes of dancing. My husband and I can sometimes have 2 left feet when it comes to dancing together; Mariia was able to adjust her lessons according to how quickly we were picking up the choreography and worked with us to create our vision. Would recommend to those looking for a romantic first dance.
