We are the 2016 USA National Champions in American Smooth and International Standard Dancing. We have been so fortunate to have exceptional coaching from our young, competing professionals, Mariya Vysotskaya and Vladyslav Dolya. Their knowledge of Ballroom Dancing is at the highest level, and they put their hearts, souls, and talents into every session. That, coupled with the gracious hospitality and availability of the Lessons in Ballroom Dance Center - a spacious facility befitting these two tremendous teachers - has truly set us up for success. We're there every Saturday ... learning, working, dancing, laughing, and loving every minute of it.

Morrison and I had dance lessons for our first dance. We had a beautiful, formal military wedding and our first dance had to reflect elegance and sophistication. Sam made it possible for us with his patience and attention to detail. Neither one of us had ever had lessons nor are we dancers. The dance was beautiful and people were crying when we pulled off this first dance together. Thanks you Sam for hanging in there with us. We spent more time laughing during the lessons. You are the best. We reccommend you and Lessons in Ballroom! MOJO

This is a wonderful place to dance. It is BIG and the furnishings are very nice. The instructors are terrific and everyone has been very supportive. My husband and I learned to dance for $99. It is very convenient and always comfortable and pleasant. We are bringing friends with us in January.

The $99 package was an amazing value! My fiance and I learned a great First Dance and we are also ready to have fun dancing after our Wedding Day. We are very happy we found this plan at www.WestEndBallroom.org

We were frustrated with HOT and crowded classes. We love the "Lessons in Ballroom" facility and people. We've learned quickly and are having great fun at the Friday and Saturday Dance Parties

We have found Sam Atkinson to be a truly gifted ballroom dance instructor who has opened the door to a new world for us. We came to him with zero experience and with plenty of hesitation, but Sam was not deterred in the least. Through his masterful combination of clear explanations, expert coaching, and ever-so-encouraging patience, he guided us step-by-step and helped us overcome our fears and lack of coordination. Sam's warm and fatherly nature created a very comfortable learning environment for us. If he could us how to dance, he can surely teach anyone!

Sam, You are a WONDERFUL teacher! I can't tell you how much I've loved learning from you. When I'm away, I miss the Lessons in Ballroom family! Thank you for supporting my dance dreams!

My wife and I never expected to learn so much so fast. Our friends who have danced for years are absolutely amazed. It's been incredibly easy too. Sam makes everything clear and simple. All the other dancers are so supportive and friendly. The ambience at "Lessons in Ballroom" is terrific and my wife loves it.

Sam! I was disappointed with other dance opportunities. It has been wonderful to learn so much so fast. The big beautiful studio is an extra bonus.
