We purchased the One Wedding Private Class for Couple. We arrived 10 minutes before our scheduled start time. We were immediately sat down by a dance instructor who requested we fill in a detailed form and then later sat down with us for about 25 minutes discussing our form and also what we are aiming to get out of this experience. This seemed entirely like a consult. However, the groupon in no way clearly communicates that is a consult, in fact, the group is called a private class (indicating you would a lesson). However, we were taught 1-2 basic steps (which was done by the instructor to gauge our experience level … once again something done in a consult). Nonetheless, this way done for only 10 minutes. We were then sat down and had to undergo a pitch regarding the multiple wedding dance packages which we would have to take in order to proceed (no pay-as-you-go options were available). In addition, our lesson was scheduled to be with the owner; however, the owner was not our instructor. Nonetheless, on the studios website, it states that you could receive a free 30 minute wedding dance consult; however, this groupon was exactly that .. a consult … except in this circumstance, it was one that you had to pay for. Do not recommend this and would ideally like my money back.

Valeria is an awesome instructor. My boyfriend and I have 0 experience dancing and she made us feel so comfortable. If this place was closer to my house we would be here every weekend. I would encourage everyone to try this, whether you’re a new couple or a couple getting married learning how to dance with your partner is so much fun.

The 1:1 session was great, but we are not overly acquainted with dance step movement and a longer trial would have benefitted.

About Access Ballroom Dance Studio

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?

We teach Latin and Ballroom dances. Whether you want to dance for fun, look graceful at your first wedding dance, do competitions, or become a professional dancer, we can help! Our Dance Instructors recognize different learning styles and effectively adapt their teaching methods to the students' learning style to skyrocket their growth. Beyond group and private classes, we also host lively parties, where singles and couples can practice their skills and socialize on and off the glimmering dance floor.

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?

Gilfred Bynoe began dancing at just 4 years old. By 11, he was already teaching. In time, his skills would take him to various dance companies, in front of the camera for music videos, and behind the scenes as a choreographer. Then, in 2009, Bynoe decided to create a community dance space to share his passion for dance and experience with others, and he called it Access Ballroom Dance Studio.

What do you love most about your job?

Ultimately, we love seeing our students grow not only as dancers but also personally. Through dancing, we not only offer opportunities for self-improvement to our students, but also strengthen relationships within couples, make your social life more exciting and fulfilling as well as help you stay in great shape.

What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?

The best reaction I have ever gotten from a student is when they told me how much their life has changed and all the great things that they have gotten by learning how to dance. That what we helped them attain was invaluable and they wouldn’t change it for the world.
