What Our students say

We discovered that laughter and sense of adventure we had when we were newlyweds. And we’ve always wanted to learn to ballroom dance. Lori and Madelyn made it easy and so much fun.

Serious one: Madelyn and Lori are excellent  teachers.  They find a way to explain steps that YOU will understand. They not only have a vast knowledge and background of ballroom and Latin, they, also, teach  from the heart.  Oh, and they are fun and silly, too!

Student of the MonthTonya Gille

Our student for the month of October is Tanya Gille! What a determined and talented student!

“I love to dance-with Dennis Woods, my terrific teacher/partner in pro-am, or with anyone who wants to dance with me, says Tanya. Fortunately, I get to do this at the beautiful facility Madelyn and company have created at All About The Dance Latin and Ballroom!”

Tanya moved to Alabama in 2003 leaving her job as Associate Dean of College of Music at the University of Colorado to become Director of the School of Music and Professor of Piano at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. She learned that when life gives you lemons, you grow citrus fruit and learn to dance! As a Master Gardner, she literally grew fruit and also learned that sitting for long hours at the piano and computer were not healthy and was stressful. So for relief, she starting Ballroom Dancing and quickly became obsessed and lost 40 pounds! “I survived because of dance, says Tanya, and I am grateful for the kindness and encouragement the staff at All About The Dance Latin and Ballroom show to myself and others.”

Thank you,Tanya for those kind words and congratulations!!!
