Jack and I purchased the 'Wedding Package' just a couple of months before our wedding on November 24, 2012. We had the best time learning how to dance a well put-together choreographed dance to our song we chose for our first dance. With no dance experience underneath our belts, Kathy took the time to teach us new steps/turns without making us feel rushed, demonstrated anything if we had any questions, and gave us the confidence to dance in front of 250 of our guest. Till this day, we still receive compliments on how surprisingly wonderful our dance was and how they felt so lucky to be there to see it. We highly recommend Kathy and her wedding package. You will receive the most attentive, professional, memorable yet fun experience- you both will definitely be making your wedding day even that much more special. XOXO-Jack and Kablia Vang

Dancing salsa looked so much fun but I felt awkward on the dance floor trying to imitate others, so I found this reasonably priced place and thought let's give it a try. I've been dancing for a few weeks now and feeling more and more comfortable on the dance floor thanks to Kathy. She is not only a seasoned dancer, she is also a great instructor. She breaks it down and moves slowly for us beginners to learn the steps, she also demonstrates new twists, turnes, spins for those ready for fancy moves. Every class I learn something new. She is friendly, creative and her classes are a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to Monday nights. Thanks Kathy!!

The dance instructor, Franz, AWESOME!!! He was so patient... the restaurant messed up my reservation and that caused us to begin later than we planned. Many of my guests were frustrated due to my reservation mishap but as soon as Franz began the lesson, moods lightened and not a person in the room wore a frown. All my guests enjoyed him and it was such a laid back atmosphere.. he was like family, and it was just a spanking good time!!!:D Though the night started off rough, it turned out to be such a wonderful 30th bday celebration! I just wanted to thank you once again for ALL your help and sending such a great instructor. I am one EXTREMELY satisfied customer!! P.S. a few of my guests have been inspired to take up salsa dance lessons:-)

Denise and Kathy, I wanted to express how much I enjoyed "Salsa Night" last Thursday. The band, fellowship and dancing were all wonderful, and I left not only having learned a new dance but also having had a great time. I look forward to many more such events! I also want to express how enjoyable and satisfying my experience with "All About Ballroom" has been so far. Denise's group classes and superb private instruction have been everything I could have asked and well beyond. As an emerging dancer, I'm excited about what I've learned so far and even more excited about what is to come. One more thing I want to mention: I thoroughly enjoy watching the two of you together working events such as the Carnival and Salsa Night. You share an obvious love for the art of dance, a seriousness for the discipline of dance, and a contagious enthusiam which sparks in your students the joy of dance. Equally striking is the contrast between you. You are very different people, with different personalities, approaches and methods. It's that contast that makes it so powerful when the two of you work an event together, as your students have the opportunity to experience dance from each of your individual and unique perspectives. In the humble opinion of this dance student, your decision to work together as an instructor team is one that has struck GOLD. Sincerely, Bill

All About Ballroom is so much more than a dance class. I found Kathy when my dance class ended in Gainesville and have been driving 60 miles round trip to get there for 5 months.I LOVE it!! Kathy is not only an extremely talented dancer and instructor, besides teaching me ballroom, she has also renewed my belief in patience, compassion, laughter, and friendship. Did I mention she is also a brilliant choreographer and Dance Party planner? My experience with All About Ballroom has been so much fun and I have met some of my very best friends there. Thank you, Kathy for ALL you and Jed do. Need to go practice my Samba rolls. Vicki

Kathy was a wonderful teacher. She taught us to dance a Foxtrot to "For Once in My Life.". We enjoyed our lessons and our guests loved our "First Dance". We would not have been able to do this without her. We highly recommend her as an instructor.

My husband and I heard of All About Ballroom through a friend. We were looking at having a few lessons for our first dance. We chose a Wedding package that included four private lessons and one group lesson. We had so much fun, we have decided to continue dancing at All About Ballroom with Kathy!

I have been a student of Kathy's for over 6 months now. I have participated in her Ballroom and Latin/Salsa classes, and have also attended 2 Performance classes. I have been extremely delighted with every class I have gone to! Kathy's wonderful and talented personality is so energetic, she is always very upbeat, encouraging, funny and most of all so very delightful. She always makes you feel very welcome, like you are family. And if whenever you might struggle a little bit, her very caring and patience attitude is always there for you. I am having the time of my life!!! not to mention all the wonderful friends I have made. Kathy classes makes you forget about all your problems for an hour and what great exercise, I have lost 10.lb without even trying!!!!! Thanks Pete.

If you are interested in learning to dance Kathy is the instructor you want. She gives individual attention to all her students and is very sensitive to each persons needs. She is a great dancer herself but more importantly she is an awesome teacher!!

I just wanted to say thank you for last night, and for your patience in helping me arrange it as well. My wife absolutely loved it. She was really shocked that I stepped out of my comfort zone and set this up. She said she'd really wanted to take dance lessons, but figured it would be her setting it rather than me. ;) We both had a great time and learned quite a bit. You made this very easy and comfortable. It turned out better than I'd hoped for - her smile during the entire lesson was all the confirmation I needed that it was a roaring success. Thank you thank you thank you. We'll be in touch and seeing you again before too long.

"Kathy has proven to be an excellent dance instructor. Instead of "cookie cutter" "and out of the box" teaching methods, she instead takes the time to figure out and provide to each of her students the personal instruction needed to ensure success at learning to dance!"

I am so glad my now husband and I took classes with Kathy. We presented the song to her, and she taught us how to dance the foxtrot. Kathy has the gift of not only teaching in a way that makes it easy to learn, she also makes it so fun! Even when we make mistakes, it's fun! The hour would fly by effortlessly. I found that going to our weekly classes with Kathy was a wonderful break from work and wedding planning. She taught us some moved that elicited "ooohs" and "aaahs" from our wedding guests. We liked working with her so much, we decided to pile on more classes to learn the beginnings of the Argentine tango. So much fun! I hope that even with our hectic schedules we will continue to take classes with her, it's like a different kind of therapy and was such a great activity to do as a couple.

My wife and I wanted to do a "First dance" at our wedding, but I didn't know how to dance at all. We found Kathy's website and contacted her for a dance lesson. We were very pleased with her in how well she taught, her simplicity in teaching, and constructive criticism. I felt it was hopeless for someone like me to learn how to dance, but after performing at our wedding, our guests were in awe of us. I can't say enough how much my wife and I recommend contacting Kathy for a lesson. After one class you will see why we chose her to be our primary dance instructor.

It is true what another reviewer said, that Kathy works miracles! My husband and I have been taking lessons for 1.5 years with Kathy. We started with no experience and now we can hold our own at weddings, dances, or nights out. It is a great date night for us, and a great way to meet people in the community. It is also good exercise, and people have commented to us both how we have lost weight and toned up since we started. She teaches out of several towns in the area in case you're not close to Lawrenceville. If you are looking for something fun to do with your significant other, I strongly recommend you give Kathy's classes a try, or come to one of the dance events she throws every couple of months.

Thanks so much for all your help!! The wedding was beautiful and the father-daughter dance was raved about by everyone. I think in one hour you helped my husband have the confidence and that extra boost to dance an amazing dance with our daughter. I can't believe you were able to teach them the steps they learned in one hour. I have danced with my husband since then and he really gets how to lead. We plan we on taking the next class together to celebrate our anniversary. I have and will recommend your class. They had so much fun together and it was Kayla's highlight of what was a stressful week for her. Thanks again and I hope to schedule a class in the near future, Patty
