Fun at DSC – I've been a student of "DSC" for a few months and I love it! I almost didn't get out of my car the first time in because of nerves, but I'm glad I took the plunge to try it out. My teacher is Tony and he's FAB-U-LOUS! Sometimes I'm worn out from my day and am tired and grumpy; then I got to my lesson with Tony and get reenergized! Dancing is SO MUCH FUN! I really do love it and am glad I found "DSC" to be my dance home. It's a fun place to be and I couldn't be happier! Thanks all of you and especially Tony... :-)
DanceSport is the BEST!! – My wife and I have been taking dance lessons at DanceSport Carolina since September 2008. I just read that BS from whoever TrueCarolinan is (and I think I know!) and was pissed off! DSC runs a GREAT business! The teachers are great and the studio is well run! Steven, Bradley, Tony and the others have been there for years - I know cause so have I. They are great dancers and great teachers. The teachers will all tell you - if you ever asked instead of writing BS - that they are very happy working there. You can tell that Tom and Elizabeth are good people because they take of their staff. They've also had several charity events in the past - of which we donated $$$ - so the get rich thing seems a bit harsh. There's nothing wrong with being successful, especially if you have a good business; and they obviously believe in giving back. Look, the studio is big part of my and my wife's life and we don't appreciate the BS about the bright spot in our week. Check this place out - it will change your life! Thanks DSC!
Don’t waste your money – “Some” of the instructors are good but only a few. Most of their instructors are trainees that are no better than the students. The “good” instructors don’t stick around…(no further explanation needed)
Overpriced. The owners are trying to get rich quick. But I guess there will always be those who are willing to pay any price.
They push students to participate only in the competitions “they” put together. Not the other national competitions going on out there.
One of the owners, Elizabeth, brags all day about how SHE is the best and that IT is the best studio in the world. Maybe it is in the fantasy world she lives in !!!
They told students that they would get a “deep” discount to attend one of their overpriced events in exchange for a good review on Google. Worst part is that some of them will actually fall for it ! Ha ha ha
Good luck to them! Even though I can afford it, I don’t like wasting money so I didn’t last very long over there…..
YOU DESERVE THIS – What can I say but, WOW! And, why did I wait so long. Like many I have wanted to become a good dancer for years, but fed myself excuses like I can't or I don't have the time or money. This studio is like the antidote for skepticism. The energy I get just getting in the car to drive to my lessons, causes me to turn up the volume on the radio and when I leave I feel high. If you, like me, need a shot of adrenanline into an otherwise responsible and dutiful life, let this place work it's magic on you !!!!
A Rotten Apple- Watch Out! – They make it sound good with "private" (EXPENSIVE) lessons, but in fact my lessons were done in a large studio with a bunch of other people around.
I was not comfortable at all and decided not to do more than 4 lessons.
Also my 2nd lesson was supposed to be an hour and my instructor dissed me after 45 minutes to meet with "a new student."
I see their ads and billboards all around so they must be making some good money off of those they suck in. Don't go there.
Poorly Ran Business – The instructors and the facility are very nice. The owner, Elizabeth is very pushy and very money hungry. They do not care about the customer and the end result of your lessons. Her only concern is to pay the bills however that needs to happen. Take lessons are your own risk.....
Not the same person I use to be! – Dancesport Carolina is the best! I am not a very exciting person nor do did i live a very exciting life. Once i started dancing at DSC everything changed. NOw, I have a hobby I cant live without, I have met so many fun people, and I have something to look forward too every week. This studio goes above and beyond when it comes to service. Yes, it isnt cheap, but the service and attention they give each student is worth every penny and then some! Looking forward to many more years as a student and a friend of DAncesportcarolina.
Have fun and change your life at the same time!` – It was January of 2009, I was alone, watching television in my apartment and bored out of my mind! As someone once said, I was, "leading a life of quiet desperation". I knew that I would have to make a change soon or risk leading a boring, mediocre life forever! But what could I do? Being in my mid-thirties and single, I was done with the bar scene and online dating provided many forgettable nights and awkward situations (For example, when you are sitting across from your date in dead silence, realizing that you have nothing in common with that person!).
The next day at work I saw an online ad for Dancesport Carolina ballroom dancing. I was intrigued and decided to check out the website. The site was well done and showed alot of people having a great time. What did I have to lose, I thought, so I called and scheduled a free lesson. That Friday, despite some hesitation, I arrived at Dancesport Carolina with much anticipation . Immediately when I entered the studio I noticed a buzz in the air! People were excited to be in the studio and were having a great time! Despite my initial discomfort with ballroom dancing (I am not the most graceful person in the world), the instructors were extremely professional and made me feel at home right away. I became hooked on ballroom dancing right away and I have been taking lessons ever since.
My time at Dancesport Carolina has been a blast! The instructors are very professional and can break any dance, whether it's waltz, rumba, foxtrot, cha-cha, tango, swing, hustle and mambo, into simple steps that anyone can follow. Despite the fact that I had no dancing experience whatsoever, I was able to learn both ballroom and latin dance well enough to compete at the Southern Paradise Ball (a local ballroom dancing competition) in May! Besides becoming a better dancer, I have made many new friends through the group classes in addition to becoming good friends with the instructors. The instructors are not only professional but encourage you every step of the way which makes the time at the studio that much more enjoyable and satisfying. There are many other benefits to dancing at Dancesport Carolina, but for me, perhaps the greatest blessing is the added confidence that I have gained as my dancing skills continue to improve (it is true that women really do appreciate a man that can dance!). In short, ballroom dancing at Dancesport Carolina has changed my life!
So if you are reading this review and are looking to escape a "quiet life of desperation" or add some fun and pizzaz to your daily routine, then check out Dancesport Carolina the best place in town!
The Best Hour of My Week – I highly recommend Dance Sport Carolina to anyone looking to learn how to dance. Even if you have never danced before, the studio is welcoming and eager to meet your needs. Not only do you learn how to dance, but you network with others who are also looking to meet new people. The first lesson is free, so you have nothing to lose! Try it and soon you will be saying what I say after each lesson, “That was the best hour of my week!”
Great place to dance! – The entire staff at Dance Sport Carolina were all fantastic! My wife and I signed up to get ready for my brother's wedding and really enjoyed ourselves, Robert was great. The schedule was flexible and the instructors were professional. I highly recommend this place to anyone interested in a non-intimidating, fun atmosphere to learn some great dance moves. We'll definitely be back for more!
