"Deannah has changed our dancing. She is helping us with technique, but perhaps even more notably, has truly helped us learn the character and signature style of each dance. Plus, lessons are always fun!"
Peter & Tracey Bain
"Deannah is the best ballroom teacher in the Denver area! After first taking lessons with Jennifer Booth I started working with Deannah. I particularly enjoyed the more physical aspect she gives to dancing. Demonstrating steps and technique through physically putting me in the right positions often helps immensely." Harald Stark
"Deannah is the most skilled and personable instructor I’ve known! She is patient, personable, and perceptive. "
"I enjoy working with Deannah. I can see improvement, and that is a direct response to her teaching. I really enjoy my dance lessons, and that keeps me going back."
"We started taking lessons from Deannah by accident. We have continued taking lessons from her for over seven years because she treats us with respect and pushes us to improve. When we have difficulty doing what she want us to do, she explains the movement in different ways and never loses her patience. We have often seen her dance socially, in competitions, and in performances, and it is obvious that she is a great dancer. She is competitive with the best dancers in the country, and in performances our attention is drawn to her over everyone else. It is a pleasure to learn from an expert."
Dick and Frieda
"Deannah has so much talent, and she loves to dance! She is passionate about helping others improve their skills and confidence."
SOCIAL DANCEWe are, by nature, social creatures. We rely on interaction with others to make common cause, to feel worthy and needed, to develop and maintain relationships and friendships.
COMPETITIVE DANCEIf you’ve ever seen a dance competition, or even an episode of the wildly popular dance shows such as “Dancing With The Stars”, “So You Think You Can Dance?”, or “Americans Got Talent”, you probably couldn’t help but notice the confidence and ‘swag’ that these dancers carry on and off the dance floor.
