Private Lesson Testimonials

Tony and LynnRead what a few of our pupils say about our Private Dance Lessons.

Tony and Lynn “We’ve been having private lessons with Enjoy Dance (a fitting name given they take out the fear and allow people to truly enjoy dancing) for a little over a year now. We started with no experience and much trepidation but as each lesson goes by we are gathering confidence and acquiring skills we never thought possible – from no idea we now find ourselves making our way around a dance floor in many different dances. They provide clear and straightforward instruction – aligned to your own needs and stage of development so that you can understand and make real progress without being put off by it all being ‘too difficult and complicated’. Not only that but they go that extra mile to provide a strong social aspect (even though we’ve been having private lessons we feel welcomed into a wider group on these occasions) where you can try out your newly acquired skills.  If you want to learn to dance but are a little unsure or filled with fear then we would say to you just go for it – and we couldn’t recommend Enjoy Dance highly enough to be your ‘partner’ on that journey.”

Richard and SharonRichard and Sharon: 11 months back following a holiday with my sister and friends we decided to look for someone who might be able to teach two complete novices how to dance as we had spent a week watching others enjoying themselves on the dance floor in the hotel and we were the typical “wallflowers”.**(Can’t dance, will not dance, do not ask me).

So I began to search the web and came upon a site called “Enjoy Dance Leeds”. Spoke with Steven who at the time could only offer us private lessons as all the group courses were full and too far on to catch up. We decided to have a lesson and see how things went. Suffice it to say the lesson went well and we are still dancing in fact we changed from the above ** to (Can dance, will dance, try and stop us) all because of “Enjoy Dance Leeds” and the brilliant teaching and patience of Steven and Helen. We have emerged from no interest in dance to a hobby that has changed both our lives and introduced us to some lovely people in the world of social sequence dancing and modern Latin and ballroom dancing. We cannot recommend Steven and Helen highly enough to anyone who wants to learn to dance.

Frank and Patricia -For a number of years we had thought that we would like to try-out some dance lessons to see whether we enjoyed participating as much as watching “Strictly”. We received an “Enjoy Dancing” leaflet through the door advertising group lessons for beginners. There was only a requirement to commit to five lessons, which suited us, in case we didn’t enjoy the experience. We ended up attending the classes for a year, which gave us some confidence and ability in a number of dances.

We then decided to try private lessons, which suit us better because; they move at our pace; they are tailored to our ability; and we can choose which dances we want to learn, or expand. We will never be Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers, but Helen tries her best with us, and we do thoroughly enjoy each session.

Steven and Helen also arrange regular Friday Dance Nights which allow us to practice our skills in a casual social environment. They also make us think more about the routines we’ve learnt, rather than relying on directions from Steven and Helen.

We recommend that anyone who is thinking about learning to dance should give them a try. Their teaching method is easy to follow, doesn’t overload you with too much too soon; and emphasizes enjoyment over perfection. We wish we’d found them years ago.
