CRYSTAL AND MATTHEW
Hi Debra! We nailed it! 😅 Matt the DJ said it was in the top 2 dances he had ever seen out of all the weddings he's done so that was a huge compliment. Thank you so much for being a great instructor. Me and matthew are definitely thinking of continuing our dancing. We are interested in learning ballroom dancing perhaps in the very near future. I'm going to have to search for a video as I'm unsure if it was captured 😁 I know there are lots of photos though :) thank you again Debra.
Just wanted to thank you for your efforts in helping Michael and Allison with their dance. WOW!! They practically looked like professionals during their first dance. They truly wowed the crowd and looked like they were having so much fun doing it. A little over a year ago we were at a wedding and Allison told us that she didn’t dance, so to see her move around the dance floor with such ease and grace was amazing.Thank you so much! Actually Michael even took care of me in our mother/son dance. "Just follow my lead, Mom"
I hope you are doing well. We wanted to share some photos of our first dance with you. We had such a great time performing our first dance and we got so many compliments! My dress only got in the way a little, but nothing we felt we couldn't handle thanks to you! Once we are able to compile the video that was taken of our first dance we would be happy to send it your way as well if you are interested. Take care.
We wanted to thank you for our dancing lessons to prepare us for our wedding that was on the 5th at the Tapestry House. Our first dance went perfect and couldn't ask for anything better. Because of you...we looked damn good out on the dance floor. Haha!!!We would highly recommend you and Okay Dance to anyone who is looking for lessons.Thanks again,
We hope you are doing well. At the last dance lesson we had, you asked for an update on how it went. In one word, FANTASTIC!!! We had a few hiccups, but were able to hide it well and nobody noticed. What they did notice is how amazing the dance was. Our friends and family were cheering and clapping for us. Amy and I are so happy that we took the lessons and that you spent the time with us. You were a great teacher and we really do appreciate your support. Best wishes to you and yours. We hope our paths cross again sometime soon.
Thank you for our dance lessons! We had such a great time taking our lessons with you in September, and our first dance as husband & wife would not have been what it was without your help. We had such a blast dancing our first dance! We wanted to share the video coverage with you...
Dear Deb,I want to thank you, thank you , thank you for the wonderful lessons you gave Lindsey and Ryan so they could perform their romantic and captivating dance on their wedding night! It was magnificent and there wasn’t a dry eye in the place!! Ryan was soooooooo confident and Lindsey was stunning as she radiated with beauty as he moved her gracefully around the dance floor. They were a delight to watch and they both felt so good about it. It was a great investment to make a wonderful memory for them. Thank you sooooooooo much! God bless you,
I decided to take dance lessons as a surprise for my wife, and I was a bit nervous as I had never had danced or taken lessons before. I found Debra after performing a search for dance lessons in northern Colorado and decided to request private lessons. I am so glad I did! Debra is a fantastic dance teacher that clearly is passionate about sharing her talent of dance with others. My impression with Debra is that she is without doubt an authority in dancing and teaching proper technique. She did a wonderful job of explaining dance steps and moves in a way I could understand and she was receptive to tailoring the lesson to accommodate my thoughts as to the best ways for me to learn. I feel that I have a good, solid foundation on the particular styles of dance I was instructed in and I now have the confidence to hit the dance floor. I look forward to enjoying the new skills I have and learning more. Thanks Debra!
It did rain on our wedding day so we spent the morning getting matching umbrellas. Luckily during the ceremony it was only a light sprinkle, so we were able to do the ceremony outside. When the pastor pronounced us, it began coming down hard so it worked out perfectly. Thank you for everything, we rocked our dance pretty well and the audience loved the "sass".

Taking dance lessons with Debra was one of the most memorable events leading up to our wedding. Debra made the experience so fun and stress free! Our first dance was beyond perfect and it will be a memory we cherish forever. Thanks to Debra we danced the night away with our guests feeling prepared and comfortable! Thank you Debra!!!

Thank you so much for creating this dance for us! We're so glad we decided to do dance lessons with you. The crowd loved our dance! It was so great to work with you and we hope to take more lessons with you in the future. Have a great week!
The wedding was amazing! Thanks for asking. Our dance was perfect. Thank you so much! We couldn’t have done it without you! I attached a couple of pics but we don’t have the photographers yet. I will be in touch as I would love to participate in your other classes. Can you send me your schedule? Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Thank you again for all your help with our first dance! As promised, I've attached some pictures of it. (And one of us practicing in the church.) The dress ended up being a little more confining than I had remembered, but I think we did pretty well and we loved doing it!
There's a rumor that we may have reason to send Matt's sister your way soon... Maybe we'll be seeing you ourselves around that time.Thanks again for everything!
Hi Debra! Our wedding was amazing and we had so much fun during our first dance! Thank you so much for the lessons. They were great!
I dance competitively as well as socially, and have taken classes, workshops and private lessons from many dance instructors in the Northern Colorado area and around the country. Debra is one of the best instructors that I have encountered. She is very knowledgeable, and her attitude is always friendly, warm, energetic and enthusiastic. Whether you're an advanced dancer, or just setting foot on a dance floor for the first time, Debra is always very patient and encouraging. She makes it fun to learn how to dance! I highly recommend that you give her classes a try.
I really enjoy taking classes with you. You are so positive, patient & encouraging when you teach. I never sense any judgement towards students who are just learning to dance or if a person is having trouble picking up a new dance step. Your passion for dancing comes through so strongly. Thank you for sharing your love of dancing! With appreciation.
Dear Debra, Thank you for your gift of dance. It was a real treat learning from you, and I'll be forever grateful. You have a marvelous skill for instructing. Best of luck in your future and in your competitions. Patrice and I are already plotting to have you come to Port Angeles, next year.
"Deb is terrific! She is vivacious, fun, and an excellent dancer - best of all, she is a great teacher! Deb makes learning to dance fun and easy - repeating the steps in simple combinations until you are ready to move on. She also takes the time to arrange dances, so that you get a chance to try out your new "moves" with other people that are learning to dance. If you've always wanted to learn to dance, don't be afraid - try it! You'll be glad you did!
To all interested dance students. My wife and I have taken dance from a few different instructors and Debra has been one of the better instructors. She takes time to work with all of her students and recognizes that some are different styles of learners and will modify her techniques so as to be in tune (no pun intended) with how they learn. She will have partners switch which aids both the lead and the follower in recognizing different signals for different maneuvers. She is patient and also makes class fun, one of my regrets is that the classes are too short, and that my wife and I are unable to make enough time together to enjoy the dances we have been taught. I would recommend Debra as a dance instructor to all who want to learn to be better dancers and hopefully you can make the time to enjoy the dances that you learn from her.
Derek and I had a wonderful experience taking dance lessons with you. Your instruction is professional and thorough. We were complemented on our dance moves and coordination. Thank you for helping us learn to dance together. We had so much fun and look forward to the future when our schedules will allow us for our date nights of dinner and dancing. Please keep us on your email list, so if we get an unexpected opening in our schedule and you have an event planned we can attend.
The wedding was fantastic and we had a lot of fun dancing with everyone. Thank you for the wonderful lessons and for being patient with us. You were an extremely good teacher and were very patient with us. Also, you made the lessons fun with your creative twist to dance and positive attitude. We had a blast and felt comfortable dancing after taking your lessons.
