We have been having dance lessons with Natalie for 11 months and she is such a vibrant person with a beautiful personality. She is very patient and easy going, but firm and does push us hard at times. Her famous saying is ‘what are you doing Cliff or what was that Val’ and has a chuckle about it. We are very happy with her teaching and we have improved tremendously.
We were both terrified at the thought of our first dance, but after we had five lessons with Natalie we had a great routine to perform at our wedding. Natalie listened to what we wanted, gave us confidence and pushed us to learn new steps to match the song we had chosen. We started with the basics and she helped us improve and develop each lesson with heaps of laughter along the way. At the wedding, our guests all loved the dance, especially the shimmies which Natalie made us perfect! If you are as nervous as we were about your wedding dance then have your lessons with Natalie because she will make the whole experience stress free and fun!
Natalie has been wonderful in teaching Jeremy and Eloise. She has catered to their individual learning ability, which has enabled them to learn each style of dance with ease. Natalie has a natural ability with children and keeps the lessons fun. We look forward to seeing them advance further in the future with Natalie’s help!
Thank you for your patience, expertise and fun-loving classes that eventually got Dave and I to perform and receive a standing ovation at the end of our wedding dance. My husband cannot dance but you created a fluid and natural routine that we both looked fantastic even on video! We enjoyed your lessons so much I have come back for more. Thanks again.
I’ve been attending Natalie’s dance classes for a number of years now, progressing to private lessons for Dancesport competition. Not content with passing the demanding examinations to gain her teaching qualifications, Natalie continues to develop her knowledge of dancing by attending workshops and seminars run by the world’s best dancers. It shows in the high level of her teaching. Natalie constantly encourages me to greater heights yet has a natural talent for making every lesson a fun experience. In the nine years that I have known her, I have never seen Natalie without her trademark smile.
We had 5 lessons with Natalie and enjoyed every minute. She is very creative with choreography, very patient, and has a good sense of humor. She also had a natural sense of when a piece of the dance felt uncomfortable for us and always modified it to make us feel more comfortable, but still look great.
I have been learning Latin American dancing from Natalie for four years now. In that time she has helped me to relearn my technique from the ground up, building a stronger foundation and improving my dancing significantly.
Natalie is both a skilled dancer and a gifted coach. Having competed at a professional level until just recently, she is familiar with current techniques and her wealth of teaching experience and ability belies her young age. I have seen her teach a range of other students from advanced competition couples to leading nervous future grooms through their first attempts at a waltz or rumba.
I would happily recommend Natalie as a teacher to dance students of all ages and abilities. Her infectiously vibrant personality and friendly attitude puts people at ease and allows them to have fun while her sharp eye for detail will see you come away having learnt more than you expect.
Thank you so so much for teaching us such a beautiful dance, and for your patience and creativity! It was a great outlet during the planning of the wedding, and added a memorable touch to our special day. We both would like to pursue ballroom dancing for fun, when we get our act together that is!!
Just a quick note to thank you for all your help with our wedding dance. Matthew and I thoroughly enjoyed your lessons, and can’t believe how easy you made it for us to learn. The wedding dance was a hit, and we got through it with no mistakes!
I wanted to say a big thank you for your patience and time to teach us our samba wedding dance with our parents! We all really enjoyed doing the lessons with you and we are thinking we would like to do some more lessons as a group again learning some other dances.Thanks again sooo much!
Just wanted to say thank you for all your help in preparing our bridal dance. We had a great time with all the lessons and you kept it fun all through out. Even with the challenges you faced with the lack of coordination from Neville, the dance turned out just perfect.
On the night the dance turned out just as we imagined it and we couldn’t have been happier. All our guests were just blown away with the performance. We do appreciate all the time and effort on your behalf over the past 4 months right from the very first lesson to last day of training.
