About the Teacher

We worked with Kathryn for a couple months leading up to our wedding and are so glad we did! Our goal was to get a little more comfortable on the dancefloor and we ended up working out some choreography for our first dance. We got rave reviews on our dance! The process was very fun and Kathryn was awesome to learn from and hang out with. In the busy time leading up the wedding, it was so nice to have an hour set aside to have fun with each other and pick up some new moves that will always be in our arsenal. Thank you Kathryn and Duet!

We tried a few studios before landing on Duet and working with Kathryn, which was a total dream. She instantly understood what we wanted and helped us get there with patience and kindness. We loved dancing with her - she made us feel comfortable and we also had a ton of fun! Thank you Kathryn!!

From someone with no experience and two left feet I felt pretty cool mastering the basics! The instructors are so nice and welcoming! Have some drinks and go shake your bon bons! I plan on coming back!

My husband and I wanted a fun but classy first dance for our wedding, but we knew we couldn't do it on our own. We found Duet through other Yelp reviews and figure we should pay it forward.
We worked with Brennen during a consultation and got such helpful feedback from him and had such a good time that we decided to buy a 10 class package for the two months before our wedding to work with him. Brennen was so professional: from laying out the 10 class plan, to getting to know us in order to tailor our dance to suit our personalities, to giving us ideas for practicing when not in the studio, and most of all, by just being super positive and fun to work with.
Additionally, every person who works in that studio is kind, generous, energetic, and hospitable. It is clear that the people who work here enjoy being there and doing what they do.
Not only was our First Dance at the wedding fun for us, but I know that our friends and families loved seeing it too. And, as cheesy as this sounds, taking those classes was a really special time for my husband and me. It was a team-building exercise, a time that we chose to laugh instead of get frustrated when we messed up (and, seriously, there's Brennen's professionalism again, as he always remained neutral and helpful!), and a breather from the final countdown wedding day hustle, where we could shut out the world and enjoy learning how to dance together. So many thanks to Brennen and the Duet Team!

Had an amazing time learning salsa with my fiancé last night. It was something new we tried and LOVED it!! If you've thought about trying it out, go for it. No experience needed. My fiancé has 2 left feet and the instructor Kathryn took her time to help him out. Thanks girl! We had a great date night. We will definitely be back!

The instructor and all the students were fun and polite.
Very fun, I would recommend to anybody!

Just went to one of the beginners lessons that occur on Fridays. It was fun! Our instructor, Megan, was great! Seemed really knowledgeable and supportive. I'm thinking that I might get private lessons at some point in the near future.

I was able to experience something special with my wife and I will definitely be back. I think that from the time I actually began searching for something special for my wife and I to do a few weeks ago nothing but good things has come from taking that step. I wish the instructors all the best. If you are looking for a very bonding experience this dance studio is someplace to go thank you.

Szewai and the whole crew at Duet have the exact kind of positive energy and skills that make you feel ready to take on any wedding challenge. Both my new wife and I had so many individual responsibilities to make our wedding exactly what we imagined, and sometimes it felt like we barely saw each other long enough to get excited for the big day.
That's why our weekly lessons at Duet were so important. Not only did they help add an amazing moment to the festivities with a kick-ass dance choreographed to Madness by Muse, we turned the evening into a nice date night where we could catch-up, talk about our plans, and take a deep breath together. We owe a lot to Szewai and everyone at Duet for the amazing experience!

Had a great time for Valentine's Day. Great place for a date night.

Found these guys on Gilt City and couldn't help but put my two left feet to work on a fun date night. The space is super sweet with a mirror wall to watch your form and benches bordering the room to take a seat when you need a break.
I bought the private lesson for 2 plus 1 group BYOB class and I haven't gone back for the group yet but can't wait.
We did the salsa for our private and our intructor made us feel so comfortable. Letting us feel the rhythm and have some fun at the same time. We left learning something new and a great date night to add to the books.
Can't wait to go back tonight for our Bachata lesson and to make some new friends!

Szewai and Grace are both so informative, patient and great dance teachers!
We typically dance with Szewai, but had the pleasure of working with Grace while she was out of town, and you couldn't ask for better dance instructors. We have been going for a little over 4 months and always look forward to our dance nights. I travel a lot for work, so we can't make it every week, but Szewai is super understanding and flexible with our schedules. A huge selling point for me as I hate feeling guilty when I can't commit to anything on a weekly basis and love that this works out for us.
We liked our classes so much, we did a group class for my birthday in December. Everyone loved it!
If you are looking to learn ballroom dancing for any occasion or just for fun, stop your search. I don't think I could ever recommend a better place with better people :)

My boyfriend planned a night out with our family and friends to Duet Dance and it was the best surprise ever. We had a terrific time! The instructor was so sweet and made us feel like we didn't really have two left feet. I would do it again in a heartbeat. It was a great time!
Mario B.Hustle Dance September 18, 2013
Let's get the elephant out of the room right off the bat; any amateur dance class, especially one that covers the "hustle," has the potential to be awkward. Dance is one of those things that you're either really good at or, well, me. But Szewai Lee, the class' instructor, not only manages to actually teach you something, but somehow miraculously make you feel like you're not completely embarrassing yourself. The class is BYOB (which helps, let me tell you) but overall, it's her instruction (or, more specifically, her style of instruction) that really makes the class enjoyable. If you're tired of going to the bar on Friday night and want to try something different, you'd be hard pressed to find something that's as fun. My girlfriend and I will definitely be back (after much, much, much, MUCH more practice on my part).

My husband and I went to Duet Dance Studio because we wanted to learn some swing dance moves for our wedding dance. We worked with the owner, Szewai. She was amazing! She is so patient, clear, laid back, and a lot of fun! We couldn't have asked for a better experience. When it came time to perform our dance at our wedding, we didn't even have to think about it! We knew the steps so well, that it just felt natural. I would recommend Duet to anyone!! We can't wait to go back, even after our wedding!
