Arabesque offers a wide variety of dance and Pilates classes for dancers of all ages and skill. Four years ago, I put my ballet slippers on for the first time since childhood and have enjoyed every class. The ballet classes use the Cecchetti classical method, so each person- adult or child- dances at their skill level and is personally challenged to grow and achieve in an encouraging and professional environment. The tap classes are energetic. The Pilates classes provide visible results. The adult dancers are supportive of each other and look forward to the beginning of each new dance year. The studio is owned by two experienced and talented women that are role outstanding models for all of the young people and young at heart. Each year culminates in a well produced show for all dancers. It is great fun to watch the young people grow and the adults enjoy the spotlight!
USA Ballroom Dance, Barry Gazaway, provides clear instruction that is broken down for the very beginner (which is where I was a little more than a year ago). Barry creates a "user friendly" atmosphere by having Practice Dances to allow students a comfortable place to use what they've learned. USA Ballroom Dance, Barry, also trains beginners to become intermediate dancers through his many years of dance instruction experience. Barry uses music that is current/trendy as well as timeless. Music styles range from Senatra to Michael Jackson, to C&W. Appropriate for all dances, dancers, and guests at Practice Dances.
I'm currently taken lessons from Barry and I'm loving it! He is such a wonderful instructor. No matter what your level of experience, Barry can get you dancing. He starts with the basics and really gives you the strong foundation you need to get moving. Many dance instructors are just good dancers but Barry is an excellent teacher as well as dancer. Whatever style of dance you are looking to enjoy, Barry knows it. I highly recommend his lessons.
