    Jackie and I met dancing. When we first met on the dance floor Jackie asked, "What dances do you do?" I said the only dance i know is the shag," She said "I have taken a lot of dance classes but not any shag." I said "Do you know any West Coast Swing?" She said she did. I said, "You do what you do, and I will do what I do and it will work!" It has been working for 14 years! Now my goal is to learn as much as Jackie once knew and to deal with my Parkinson's disease through exercise. I can't think of a more fun way to exercise than to dance!

    I started dancing at Planet Ballroom back in November 2016. Learning to dance is much more work than what I expected but I also enjoy it more than anticipated. i was very nervous when I first started but the more I invest my time and energy into learning, the less nervous I get. I still have a long way to go but look forward to putting in the work and seeing where it will take me.

    To say that dancing with Tony and Elise at the Ponte Vedra studio is super fun would be a rude understatement! Intimidated by high heels on the day I walked in ( just to check it out) a couple of years ago has turned into love of life I could never have predicted. Both are unbelievable teachers (and dancers!) and this has been the most enriching part of my life journey ( and I have not sat around ) . You simply have not lived if you have not ventured into ballroom dance - it's the quintessence of life itself!

    As a guy, dance class is typically not something high on the list. Well, that changed when Jenny and I decided on a whim to sign up for classes at PlanetBallroom in anticipation for our wedding next year. I was a bit, as they say, "meh" about it, but throughout the last few months it has really become the one thing we look forward to every week. We're now at the point where we play the "what dance would go with that song" when we hear songs on the radio and are excited to continue reaching peak dance fleek. Can't thank Helena enough for being so patient with us and really breaking things down in a way that makes sense. If 6 out of 5 stars was a thing, PlanetBallroom Boca Raton would get it.

    The Cosmopolitan Classic in September 2016 was a wonderful experience. It was magical and glamorous. I was proud to have danced with Todd and show how hard we had worked on our dance routines: waltz, Viennese waltz, fox trot, and tango.

    We have always enjoyed music and dancing, but had never pursued to learn how to dance. Since taking dance lessons at Planet Ballroom in John's Creek, we have learned and continue to learn dances that allow us to look as good as we feel when we get on the dance floor. Kristen, Brian and Justin are not only exceptional dancers themselves, they are excellent instructors who focus on proper technique and styling, while keeping it light and fun. In addition to learning to dance, we have made new friends at Planet Ballroom and look forward to Friday night Dancesport After Dark. The ballroom is elegant (you are not dancing in a gym), and the music is current. It is truly one of our favorite things to do!

    My husband and I signed up for dance lessons at Planet Ballroom about 6 weeks before our wedding. Justin was able to choreograph a routine for our wedding that fused two dances (Foxtrot and Rumba) to the song we chose. He was patient while teaching us and watching us mess up a bunch before we got it. Justin made learning a lot of fun and each class went by quickly. We are so glad that we signed up to take dance lessons and many of our guests were pleasantly surprised. My mother in-law even mentioned “I didn’t know you guys could dance!” On the day of the wedding our dance was beautiful and we were so happy we had that moment to share. In fact we had so much fun learning to dance and with our excellent teacher Justin that we have decided to continue to learn to dance with him at Planet Ballroom after our wedding. We are so excited to continue our journey!

    I Live 2 minutes away from planet Ballroom and have been walking by it for a long time and admiring the people learning how to dance. I finally went in for a free lesson with my 13 year old daughter. We both had a ball learning how to dance. I've been at it with Helena the owner for a month-and-a-half now and I'm Amazed at what I have already learned. I go 3 times a week for private lessons and I go to at least two group lessons a week. I should have done this years ago. I am amazed at the patience that Helena has for her students. I highly recommend this dance studio if someone wants to learn how to dance and have fun while doing it. I am giving Helena and Planet Ballroom five stars.

    I have been at PB basically since it opened. The owner/ instructor is very personable and knows what she's doing. She can answer any questions you have and is an exceptional teacher. The environment throughout a private lesson or a group class is always positive and upbeat. I am usually here 4-5 days a week, and I would definitely recommend going and dancing. You won't regret it!

    My husband and I joined Johns Creek Planet Ballroom almost a year ago. We both love dancing and we can freestyle all night long. When it came to any kind of couple dancing, we were always stepping on each other. Thanks to our instructor Brian, we have made much strides, in learning to dance without hurting each others feet. We love being together and this is just one more thing we can do as a couple. Brian keeps our lesson interesting and we have many many laughs during the secessions. We will never be awesome, but very happy to just look somewhat like we know what we are doing. The location is great, studio nice, and we have made many new friends. Thank you Brian and Planet Ballroom for adding a bit more fun in our lives. We will continue on....with our dance adventure!!!!! Janice and Doug Jones

    My husband Emmett and I started taking Ballroom Dancing to learn a dance for our 40th Anniversary Party. We wanted to surprise our children so we kept our dance lessons a secret for two months. The plan was to learn this one dance and stop. I have foot drop so we were not sure dancing was possible. Not only did we find that I could dance I began to get some feeling back! Little did we know we would fall in love with dancing! Chris has been so wonderful to work with. He inspires me to work harder than ever before and is always encouraging both of us to keep moving forward. He has become more than just our instructor he is a friend. The other dance pros, Miriam, Allie and Chad have also been encouraging and always willing to jump in and help us learn. It truly is a family. We will be forever thankful for Planet Ballroom and all that it has added to our lives.

    Luis is fantastic!!! We've been taking lessons with Luis before he worked at Planet Ballroom. We usually attend the Friday night classes and stay for the party. The Friday Classes have reinforced many basics that we still need to be reinforced. During the party, while my husband and I are dancing and Luis is dancing with other women, he is also observing our dancing. At our next private lesson, Luis teaches us the steps and body movements (leading/following) we need to improve our dancing. Our dancing has improved since we have been going to Planet Ballroom.

    Planet Ballroom Buford is my favorite place to be. I love dancing and have waited most of my life for the opportunity to learn ballroom. I am so happy to have Chris as our instructor, he is very talented and works hard at teaching my husband and I dance lessons. I have some lofty goals and it brings joy to my heart to know we are in such good hands! Miriam shines as a dancer and her love of teaching her students shows openly. Miriam, Chris, Chad and Allie are an inspiration to us all. Thank you, thank you, thank you (again) for opening Planet Ballroom Buford. Kelley Tillery

    We walked by Planet Ballroom, popped in to see what it was all about, and are loving it! We are getting back into shape, learning new dance moves, and are always challenged. The instructors are talented, passionate, fun, and friendly. The families we have met are truly a pleasure to be around. We recommend it to any age or level, because we notice all ages and levels enjoying themselves. After one month we decided to try our new moves at a wedding. Someone asked my husband if he was an instructor, and we doubled over laughing! We are awful, are enjoying the challenge, and are rekindling our marriage. After four children, this is something we can do for us. I am so glad we decided to try something new!

    Our Dancing Journey Instrumental in our journey is our dance instructor, Bradley Davenport. He has been with us since our first day. He has instilled in us the love and fun in dancing and the gift of patience with ourselves and each other by his shining example. Bradley took our two left feet and gave us each a right and left and helped us learn to dance one step at a time. I remember watching more experienced dancers and wishing we could dance “like that” and sometimes I still do. The difference now is that we have remained teachable and we have learned to improve in each and every lesson and we are DANCING! Always striving to learn and develop our different dance steps, Bradley has helped us gain confidence and we are truly inspired. Our personal relationship and our communication has improved with our dancing and in our life.i

    We found Planet Ballroom on Groupon and decided to try it out. We loved our introductory lessons with Gerri so much that we decided to have a choreographed first dance at our wedding in April. We then continued our 3 month journey learning steps to all ballroom and Latin dances. We told Gerri our first dance song, “Married Life” from the movie up. She told us we were going to do the Viennese waltz. We were nervous since we knew it was going to be a fast pace waltz, but she told us if we put the work in she will make us look good. 3 months past and we got to know the rest of the family (Justin and Terry) at Planet Ballroom. A couple of weeks ago, I married my best friend and had people complimenting us on our new found dancing skills. We highly recommend Planet Ballroom Buckhead for anyone who wants to learn how to dance.

    I love dancing at Planet Ballroom. Miriam and Chris have been wonderful instructors. Their energy and enthusiasm are infectious, and their patience and knowledge have been invaluable in my learning. I came to PB as little more than a beginner, and in the month that I've taken lessons from Chris, I've made great strides and feel a lot more confident with my dancing. The fitness classes are also challenging in the best way and motivate me to stay active. Last but not least, the people I've met at PB have been very friendly and positive. Looking forward to continuing my dance journey with this group.

    We have always wanted to learn how to dance and it was on our bucket list. Steve has 2 kids getting married this year so I could not think of a better gift than dance lessons. It was a surprise Christmas gift and he was thrilled. Our experience so far has been wonderful. Justin is a great instructor, patient and I know we keep him laughing even after we leave. We always look forward to our Saturday lessons. If you have ever thought about lessons for a second but were unsure it is absolutely worth it. I highly recommend Planet Ballroom.

    We experienced our first dance lesson with Justin and it was wonderful. My husband and I do not dance together much but we both love listening to music and occasionally bop to the beat. My husband surprised me with private dance lessons and I will say that it was not expected, but greatly appreciated. We intend to take this journey together and enjoy it as much as possible.

    Before planet ballroom, dancing wasn't something I had ever been really good at. I had a little rhythm and always loved music, but I couldn't sing, or play, so why not try to dance? Another reason I tried planet ballroom was I wanted to learn some easy steps in a dance or two to lead a wife someday as something we could both enjoy. Little did I know that very soon I would not only be dancing an amazing tango, but would find a true passion for which my life had been waiting. I can't thank my instructor enough and the planet ballroom family for opening up my life to one of the most fun hobbies and passions I could have dreamed of. Now a year later I feel so competent in 10 dances!! And even more than this, I've met some great friends and made some memories that will last a lifetime! Thank you to all that make this possible for so many people like me!

    My wife and I are in our early 50's and had never had any type of formal dance instruction. Our daughter was getting married this summer and we wanted to be able to dance during the reception. We found out about Planet Ballroom from a Groupon and started taking lessons from Elaine at the Lake Wylie site. Elaine was the perfect instructor for us. She was very patient and encouraging. The other instructors at PB were also friendly and encouraging, even though we weren't their students. The classes for Beginners and Bronze 1 students are a great way to meet people and get more comfortable dancing in front of and with others for people just starting their journey into dance. Even when we first started and had less dance experience than anyone else there, the relaxed environment made us feel good about our progress.

    Since i first entered the doors at Planet Ballroom over 5yrs ago my life changed. The instructors and all my co-dancers have been phenomenal. My instructor Bradley especially. He has helped fulfill a childhood dream of becoming a 'true' dancer. One I never thought. I could be, especially at the age of 57! Planet Ballroom is now a part of my 'family'. If you want to experience feeling truly glamourous then you must join us. You will not regret it! Jane Welton

    I'm so enjoying learning the ballroom dance steps for my favorite dances. Many, many years ago I used to teach Swing dancing at an amateur level. My mom and dad used to Jitterbug whenever there was an opportunity to dance. I always wanted to dance with my dad and had the opportunity to do so some time ago. I'm really looking forward to becoming reasonably proficient at the Foxtrot, Swing, Mambo, and Tango.

    I have discovered Planet Ballroom Matthews in January 2015. It has only been several months, but I could not be happier with the results. I was looking for a fun hobby and decided to give ballroom dancing a try. I had no idea how happy dancing will make me feel. Besides making me more graceful and fit, dancing also increased my confidence and overall satisfaction with life. The instructors of PB Matthews are true professionals. They know a perfect combination of praise and constructive criticism. Their colorful personalities and great sense of humor make classes fun and entertaining. A big Ukrainian THANK YOU to Bradley, Todd, Miriam, Justin, and Darrell! I was looking for a hobby, but ended up finding my new passion. Love, Kate :)

    Remember that girl that was almost too scared to step on the dance floor not so very long ago? Well, she doesn't live here anymore. She's long gone. It's been nearly two years since I first mustered up the courage to start dancing, and I'm glad every day that I did it. I've mastered skills I never thought possible (hello, upside-down Tango lift!), formed joyous new friendships, and generally improved my life for the better. (And did I mention the intense addiction to rhinestones and fake eyelashes?)

    I am a believer in the greater universe, I have learned that what I put out there will undoubtedly be returned. Once upon a time, a first year classroom teacher, I was consumed with planning curriculum and details of my space. I approached my mentor for advice on how to be the most successful I could be. I followed his discipline, and for years I inspired so many others to grow from the inside out. With twenty years under him, he told of only two important things I needed to remember. He said, “know and love what you teach, and know and love your students, and the rest will fall in to place.” My deepest gratitude goes to Matthews Planet Ballroom, for I am the student now, and I have no doubt that this is my time to bloom.

    A year ago I started taking lessons at Planet Ballroom. Being a girl who was extremely shy with not much self confidence and had no dance experience, I was extremely nervous! As the months went by, not only did I become more comfortable with dancing and talking to others, I began to appreciate myself more. I have grown so much not only socially and physically, but mentally throughout my dance journey. There are so many amazing memories that I have, from participating in the Crown Town Carnival and attending some of the special events, to the amazing classes that look forward to going to throughout the week. I'm so greatful for the experiences I've had and all the wonderful people that I have met this past year. Thank you so much, Todd, Justin, Bradley, Miriam, Darrell, and all the students for making my dance experience unforgettable and making me feel welcome into the dance family.

    Dancing used to be something way out of my comfort zone. It took a lot of courage to commit myself to try it out. After a couple of classes with Chris(Tina), I was hooked. Though dancing is still rather challenging in so many ways, I feel more comfortable. Thank you Chris(Tina) for your patience and kindness. One of these days, I will be able to say proudly that I am a "dancer" .

    I had never attended any type of exercise classes ever in my life until we started dancing a year and a half ago. It has been such a blast, and it stretches me emotionally, physically, mentally and socially. But, I must say that after only three classes of the new PB fit classes, I am close to accomplishing something that has been a goal for me since I was a little girl. Can you guess what it is? Touching my toes!!! With these long legs and old body, that is no small task. I was giddy last night after Michelle's class, even though it is a killer class! Thank you PB fit.

    I started country dancing in 1994 in the DC Metro area (in places like Red Moon Saloon, Boots, Blackie's, and Nick's) and found such joy on the dance floor. My favorite dance was the 2-Step, which is surprisingly like a ballroom dance! As I got older I found the bar scene less and less appealing, but I didn't want to give up dancing! Secretly wishing I was a celebrity just so I could be on Dancing With The Stars, I finally decided to give ballroom dancing a try, and I LOVE it -- the costumes, the make-up and hair, the friendships, the wonderful instructors at Lake Wylie, and especially the Friday Night DanceSport After Dark!!!

    It’s been so much fun to plunge into the Planet Ballroom experience, and come up dancing! Learning ballroom moves through PB is a wonderful couple’s hobby, and the highly professional staff remains remarkably flexible to support our hectic and differing work schedules. Carly, our instructor has great poise, unlimited patience and teaching techniques proven through experience. Her personal attention allowed me to achieve individual goals beyond fundamental dance steps, culminating in my entry into a ballroom and Latin dance competition, Cosmopolitan Classic, in September 2013. Something I never thought I would ever do! Now, thanks to PB, new steps and routines are coming easier, movements are more flowing and I'm eager to learn more dances and progress. I’m no longer out of my comfort zone – the plunge has been great!

Both of us come from long term happy marriages and feel lucky to have a second chance at happiness. We decided to find an activity that was unique to our new relationship and we chose dancing. Although I had danced socially in my life, Jose has not. Being from Argentina, Jose was most interested in learning the tango. I like the swing dances as I grew up doing the shag. We are progressing and love the family atmosphere at Planet Ballroom Lake Wiley. We are having such fun and plan to dance the rest of our life.

    Its hard to believe I'm already learning the routine to my fifth showcase performance! I have loved every minute of learning new choreography and pushing myself in new styles and techniques. Planet Ballroom is amazing!

    We have been talking about learning how to dance since before we were married. Finally, the summer before our silver wedding anniversary, we decided to cash-in a dancing gift certificate we had won in a silent auction. Once we entered the Matthews studio and met Bradley, we were hooked! We are learning to dance, meeting people, getting exercise, and just having a great time. Between the two of us, we have had a private lesson with every one of the Matthews instructors – and we learn something new each and every time. We thoroughly enjoy our private lessons, the group classes, and the fun theme parties. That charity donation in the silent auction has paid off tremendously!

    When we started to think about dance lessons,we were really apprehensive. But taking a deep breadth, we decided to use one of our birthday presents as the opportunity to finally take the plunge. Gingerly we crept through the door of the Planet Ballroom studio in Mathews for our introductory lesson. Once inside, we were me by our eventual instructor, Tony, who gave us a big, friendly 'HI' and our adventure was underway. We haven't looked back since, except to glance at a mirror and check our Rumba moves. We keep coming back to Planet Ballroom because of the fantastic staff. They are really fun to work with and have infinite patience. Ballroom's new website videos are terrific too because we always seem to need a little refresher during our practices at home. Hope to see you at a group lesson or weekly dance party. Abby and Bill

    My husband purchased the Groupon for my Christmas present and we started our dance journey in 2013. We have taken ballroom dance classes years ago and both of us love dancing. This has been an incredible experience, many thanks to our personal instructor Steven along with Sonny & Carly. Not only are we having the best time ever, we have made new friends. A great bonus is that the cardio classes in conjunction with the dance classes have helped me personally on my road to weight loss (over 50 lbs so far) and better health. We LOVE dancing and plan on dancing as long as we possibly can.

    "It's a lot like stepping through the wardrobe into Narnia and there's a really tan version of Snow White who teaches lessons there - LOL". That's my response when someone asks me what it's like at our ballroom studio. It's kind of magical to be able to unleash that creative side of yourself and learn dances you've seen in the movies. Plus, you get to dress up like the little mermaid or your favorite character for showcase (see profile picture)! My husband John and I started dancing just before our wedding - with only about a month to prepare. Our dance instructor Richard had us comfortable in a short amount of time doing a foxtrot routine for our wedding dance. Since then, I have continued to take lessons on my own and have felt very much at home and surrounded by kindred spirits at our studio. It has been and continues to be a wonderful journey.

    We signed up for the Wedding package and am so thankful. We had a great time learning to ballroom dance together. We impressed our family and friends with our introduction dance and our Fox Trot 'First Dance'. It was a wonderful experience!
