Anthony S., Brooklyn NY (Yelp)

Kari was great in teaching me how to Waltz to "A Thousand Years" for our wedding dance. In the beginning I had no idea what I was doing as I never had any prior dance experience. But after 7 lessons with Kari, I was able to twirl, lift and dip my wife and have a successful first dance at my wedding! Kari was even able to teach me how to Bachata to "Stand by Me" with my mom for the Mother Son dance. Can't recommend her enough!

Alex M., Ridgewood NY (Yelp)

This review is long overdue but let me just say that Kari was amazing! My (now wife) and I wanted our first dance to be just right. She is a much better dancer than I; all I could do is the Cha-Cha Slide because they tell you how to dance! So clearly I was the one in need of assistance before the big day. Kari was sure to walk us through step by step, move by move until everything was just right! She made us feel comfortable and answered any questions we had along the way. Always kept a positive attitude and was sure to throw in a joke about my height once and a while. Be sure you use Dance Reverie. You will never regret it!

Lynn W., Kew Gardens Hills Queens NY (Yelp)

Working with Kari has be an absolutely wonderful experience. She is talented dancer and even better instructor. She was patient and was willing to work with us despite our hectic and erratic schedule. She helped us developed our dance routine for our wedding and allowed us to put our personal touch while helping discover what was possible. Overall I highly recommend Dance Reverie, Kari was very professional and we wouldn't have been to to this without her help.

Choosing Dance Reverie and working with Kyle who choreograph our first dance for our wedding on 12-15-17 was such a great experience and one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! I would do it all again just because the lessons were so fun and our first dance was just perfect. Our guests are still raving about it. This the THE place to go if you are looking for lessons for any occasion or just for fun! Our experience was EXCELLENT all around.

My fiance and I were looking to get some dance lessons for our first dance for our wedding November 2017 to make it extra special. When we found Dance Reverie, we said let's do it! Kyle was a great communicator to get our first scheduled class. When we first met our dance instructor, we knew that this was going to be a great experience. Kari is truly amazing! There is no doubt about her ability to teach; she made us feel welcomed and very comfortable with our dance lessons. She is very patient and professional when it comes to the various styles of dancing. Each and every time we learned something new. This dance studio is a definite must. We would not have been able to choreograph our song like how she guided us. We have truly learned so must from Kari. Every class is an exciting and fun experience for my fiance and I. We will definitely go back for more dance lessons in the future. Kari is truly an amazing dance instructor. I cannot recommend this place enough. I would give it a 10 star if there were 10 stars to give!!!

THIS IS THE BEST WEDDING DANCE CLASS EVER! If you are looking to have a fun and yet useful wedding dance class, this is the place! Kyle is the best instructor I could ever asked for. My husband and I decided on learning tango for our first dance and we started taking classes about three and a half month before the wedding. We took about 14 private lessons and our performance at the wedding was absolutely stunning. We got so many great compliments about our first dance and a lot of the guests were interested in going to this place as well! Kyle was very professional, patient and paid great attention to every detail of the dance to make sure we would put on a great show. Both my husband and I had no prior experience in dancing, and yet we could perform a 4min tango show at our wedding, which was truly amazing! Kyle was also very flexible about the schedule. He has studios in two locations, one in FH and the other on LI. He could always accommodate our schedule, especially the couple of weeks leading up to the wedding. We also learned the father daughter dance and mother son dance with Kyle and Kari. I highly recommend Kyle and Kari if you want to amaze your guests!

Kyle was absolutely fantastic in preparing us for our first dance. We have never taken dance lessons before and the moves seemed intimidating at first but Kyle did a great job breaking everything down and making each segment simple to follow. We is very accommodating to your songs and preferences and is an amazingly talented dancer and instructor. We highly recommend the 5 lesson package with additional lessons as needed. Even though we began preparing pretty late (1 month before our wedding), Kyle made sure that we were prepared for our entire song well before the big day. He went above and beyond in professionalism and took extraordinary care to make sure that we got the most out of each lesson. The dance that he taught us was not just simple choreography meant for a specific song but rather an interchangeable skill-set that we've been able to use in other songs and at other occasions as well! There is absolutely no end to the positive things that we can say about Dance Reverie and the only way to understand it is to go in and see for yourself!

Full disclosure, both my fiancé and I came to Dance Reverie with two left feet. We got a class on Groupon and enjoyed it so we scheduled more classes to work on a some dance moves for our upcoming wedding. Our instructor, Kyle, is an amazing coach and we are both impressed at how far we progressed after only a few classes. In addition to giving us the necessary skills, Kyle’s teaching style has given us confidence to perform in front of our guests and we are really excited to see the end result. Most importantly these classes are fun, I can see us going back after the wedding to work on some new skills. If you are looking to choreograph a dance or just learn how to dance with a partner definitely recommend coming here!

From the moment I walked into the studio I felt welcomed! My husband and I decided to come to Dance Reverie 5 weeks before our wedding just to get a basic knowledge of some dance moves for our special day. Going in we both did not know how to dance at all. Kyle not only showed us the basics of dance moves but also choreographed our first dance. We decided to do 7 lessons with Kyle and we were able to perfect our first dance in front of all our loved ones. Throughout every dance lesson Kyle had patience, education and superb background knowledge of the art of dance. Kyle is not in this for the money. He truly loves what he does as a dance teacher. He works 18 hour days to make sure his customers have the best experience. I highly recommend Kyle and Dance Reverie Studio to all.

Dance Reverie's Kari and Kyle are graceful, professional, and most importantly, personable. Never did we feel intimidated. About Kyle: Every lesson was fun and built upon each previous lesson. It never felt like "class" -- we always looked forward to each time we met up. Kyle's teaching method is proactive, yet firm, and we appreciated that; also very accommodating to each and every couple. For example, we can tell he was always busy fitting his couples in throughout the day, making time for each couple to have a full hour and sometimes even more. Two Locations: a huge plus to us. Forest Hills location is always convenient, while Mineola location is brightly lit, with ample parking. The Dance: Kyle taught us some dance moves, and creatively associated the dance moves to BJJ moves and other everyday-moves, so that it would be easier for muscle memory. With his help, we linked the moves together to fit our song perfectly, from the lows to the highs of the song. The Big Day: We had so much fun with this elaborate dance, as we are not ballroom dancers at all, of any sort. Did I mention? Kyle made it a point to come see us. He scheduled his day so that he was able to stop by our venue. Seeing him calmed my nerves, and I am sure any future bride will appreciate seeing a friendly face when a million other thoughts are going through your head! Our family and friends were impressed, and through the loud music and tears behind my eyes, I could hear our friends cheering from the sides of the dancefloor with every dip, lift, and twirl! All in all, I highly recommend Dance Reverie for their teaching methods, for their instructors, and for their friendliness. If I were to go out and pay money for wedding dance lessons, it would have to be to Kyle of DR. Thank you to Kyle for making our first dance unforgettable!

My fiancé and I wanted to take dance classes before our wedding so we could move across the floor and didn't just stand in the middle 'swaying' awkwardly for two minutes. We were nervous and excited not knowing what to expect during our first class at Dance Reverie. However, as soon as we met Kari we knew we had an excellent instructor and the nerves quickly slipped away. Kari heard our first dance song along with our request to move across the dance floor and knew immediately the best dance for us. My fiancé and I were dancing (in sync may I add) within five minutes of walking into the studio, which I did not expect to even happen within the first lesson based on experience. Kari moves quickly enough through steps that you learn one, but do not get bored as you are incorporating something else into the dance. The lessons are more fun than we originally thought and a nice way to de-stress during wedding planning. We have had two lessons already and are planning on more. Looking forward to our first dance as Mr & Mrs thanks to Kari and Dance Reverie!! Highly recommend!

We also learned the father daughter dance and mother son dance with Kyle and Kari. Both my parents and my husband's were very happy with the dance. They took about 2 private lessons and every guest at the wedding thought they took at least 5 lessons. In all, our dances are absolutely the best thing at our wedding!!! I highly recommend Kyle and Kari if you want to amaze your guests!!

We simply couldn't have chosen a better dance teacher. Kyle was patient and kind throughout the entire process, working with our time schedules and helping us to create one of the most amazing memories at our wedding. With Kyle's help, we were able to perform a first dance that we definitely want to remember for a lifetime. He made us laugh when we were stressed, ensured that we felt confident to 'perform' in front of our guests, and never made us feel anything less than adequate and capable whilst trying to learn new dance moves and lifts. Thank you for making our first dance as Mr. and Mrs. Yodice so amazing!

My then-fiance and I went to Dance Reverie in 2016 to learn a wedding dance. It was the best experience throughtout the whole wedding planning process and our guests turned out amazed. A year later we came back again to brush it up for our "wedding part 2", and we were surprised at how much our muscles still remembered. During the dance I made a mistake but we immediately improvised some steps and covered it up. For that, I am grateful for Kyle's philosophy of "teaching a real dance" instead of teaching rigid choreographed steps. One thing I like the most about our instructor Kari is that she could always point it out when I felt something wrong during the dance (even before I could figure out what it was). Sometimes the adjustments were small, but we felt the difference right away the moves got instantly smoother. I highly recommend this studio to everyone who needs a stress-less learning process and an impressive dance.

We didn’t know what to expect when taking lessons and blew all of our guests away with our dance. We took lessons at the Mineola location, and the studio is fabulous! Kyle is incredible and makes you feel comfortable, it’s obvious that he has several years of experience and really knows the art of dance. He is always very responsive, and very professional! We really enjoyed taking the lessons and learning our dance and loved going to each class. Our first dance brought tears to everyone’s eyes and we were constantly told all night that we looked like we belonged on dancing with the stars. Several other couples were telling us how badly they now wanted to take lessons, and how fun and beautiful it looked. One of our guests is a professional ballroom dancer and said that we looked flawless! We tried out very best not to let Kyle down and overall felt we did a wonderful job, minus a few small mistakes! Taking lessons was also a great bonding experience for us as a couple and we are very happy that we decided to reach out to Dance Reverie! Thank you so much Kyle!!!
