Dance With Liza
Dance your way to happiness!
Sharon and Rob, married in 2011, chose "Dancing In the Moonlight" by King Harvest for their first wedding dance. I taught them in their lovely backyard which had an amazing view! Here is what they said:
"Everything was perfect. We got rave reviews on our dance and even did an encore on Sunday's reception. The whole weekend was beyond perfect. Thank you!"
~Sharon and Rob
Abby and Jessica chose a super fun and light-hearted song, Hey Baby, from Dirty Dancing, for their wedding on September 25, 2016. We had a blast laughing and goofing off during our lessons. They even invited me to their wedding! YouTube omitted the sound for copyright laws, but you can still sense their joy on their special day.
Sarah and John got married on November 5, 2016. I enjoyed choreographing their dance; especially the polka part. I got inspiration from Mary Poppins! Here is what they said:
"Our first dance was absolutely fantastic! Our guests went totally crazy for it and it was so so much fun! I'm so glad we decided to learn choreography for it, it made it just that much more special and felt like a really fun gift for our guests. Everyone was raving about it after.
~Sarah and John
"Liza really is amazing; she came to our home for our first lesson, choreographed a beautiful dance to the song we chose and was really patient with us. She is kind but to the point which was really helpful to keep us on track when it was difficult. I can't emphasize how pleased we are with her. The dance was a hit! And can't wait till we book more lessons for fun."
~Paul and Tracy, married June 21, 2015
“We like her format.”
~John & Kate
"For the mother-son dance at my wedding, my mom and I wanted to do a fun, upbeat, choreographed dance to one of our favorite songs ["Don't Stop Believing" by Journey]. We gave Liza our song, she created the dance, we had two practice sessions with her and we were good to go. The dance was a huge hit and the crowd loved it. Liza did a great job and delivered exactly what we were looking for. I would highly recommend Liza. She's great!"
~Kevin, married on October 31, 2015
“She’s very friendly.”
“Your dance classes were a blast!"
~Cassandra and Mark
"I appreciated Liza's incredible patience and kindness. She broke things down into manageable steps for me, and now I can get through a basic routine in East Coast, Charleston, and Lindy Hop. Liza prepares ahead of time for each lesson, has a game plan, and teaches with infectious enthusiasm--she makes it fun! Liza is flexible about scheduling, and has access to studios in different locations. Of course, she's an exceptionally good dancer, and can teach a variety of dance styles.
“It accelerated our learning when she videotaped our dancing. After the second taping we realized we actually looked pretty good! We would definitely recommend Liza. We had a great time preparing our wedding dance with her.”
~Stephanie and Grant
"My fiance and I decided at the very last minute (3 weeks prior to our wedding) that we should take dance lessons for our first dance at our wedding. We found Liza on Yelp and she was fantastic. She even helped us pick our song! We did not want anything too choreographed and Liza helped us plan a dance that was classic and not too over the top planned. Liza was very professional and very patient with us. She is creative and breaks the moves down so it becomes easy to learn. She helped give us the confidence to kill our first dance song. Thank you, Liza for everything."
~Kristi and Nick
Julie and Lawrence, married March, 22, 2015, chose one of the most unique songs for their wedding dance: the Jurassic Park theme song! Here is what they said:
"Liza was totally up for the challenge. Liza came to our home each week for 8 weeks and it became a “date-night”. It was a refreshing break from stressful wedding planning for both of us. She also gave our father-daughter and mother-son dances a bit of style and all of us were more comfortable and relaxed on the dance floor the evening of the wedding. Our guests were very impressed with our first dance and we were so excited and proud to perform it for them.
~Julie and Lawrence
"My partner and I are absolute beginners at Country Two Step. Liza is an excellent instructor; we have had only three lessons and already feel that we could dance in a club and not feel completely out of place. The lessons are fun and non-threatening - we look forward to them every week."
~Beth and Jacque
"I have been doing Country Line Dancing with Liza for a month now... and it is so much FUN! She always makes it a fun learning experience and we have already tested out our skills at the Country Bars. She is open to suggestions for any line dance you want to learn. I highly recommend her."
~Jill in April 2015
"I have participated in Liza's Country 2-step group lesson every week since May 2013. Liza helped me improve my Country dancing skills tremendously. I had taken lessons at a local dance studio for 6 months berfore starting Liza's program. The beginning 2 step group lesson was always the same routine. I seldom received any individual attention. I could perform the basic routine, but never got any encouragement to progress to the intermediate class. At Liza's group lesson she added new dance variations every week that I had not learned before. She is a very skilled group dance instructor who sucessfully leads the group and takes the time to break down the foot step positions in a patient and supportive way.
