Personal experience with some area teachers
DDB School of Dance
|We’ve been taking private lessons with Dan now for over two years. Dan has taught many years, and has produced many competition winners. He can be very articulate about style and how it affects the result. In our opinion, this is the best quality instruction we have experienced.
|Eileen has taught ballroom dances for many years. I took group lessons with her for several years, and I rate her as competent, experienced, and knowledgeable. Eileen has taught at the Singles Outreach Services Community Ballroom Dance for many years.
|Schenectady & Clifton Park
|I’ve taken group merengue and bolero lessons with Herschel. He demonstrated a knowledge of style and teaching technique.
|Pittsfield & Albany
|We took group lessons with Steve over a two year period. Steve is very talented, and he brings a marvelous sense of humor to his instruction. Steve can follow as well as he can lead.
|We took private lessons with the Mindlins over a two year period. The Mindlins have a long tradition of teaching round dance and ballroom dances. For years they organized and participated in an annual round-dance weekend. Their terminology differs somewhat from conventional ballroom.
