When it comes to private dance lessons I have never met a more dedicated dance teacher than Stew. He absolutely loves what he's doing and that shows in his attitude and in the whole atmosphere. He's incredibly nice and warm and goes out of his way to accommodate any needs. He can teach any level and even though he's one of the most experienced dance teachers all around LA, he's amazingly good with beginners as well and breaks down every step explaining WHY you need to do certain moves and takes all the necessary time for his student to understand what they need to do. Lessons are always fun and you advance in no time. Always a pleasure to work with him.

I always enjoy dance classes at LA Dance Central. My instructor is Stew and he is awesome. I have learned much about ballroom dancing and look forward to my next class, both group and private!

My fiancee and I purchased a special for six dance classes to learn a dance for our wedding. We had a great time for our first session. We learned a lot and had a blast. We look forward to our next five classes!

Stew is very knowledgeable and he teaches his classes in a fun and welcoming manner that is relevant to all skill sets. He speaks to more-experienced dancers in their lingo as needed, which I'm sure they appreciate. As for me, I'm a big lug and he puts things in layman's terms as I need them. And he's hilarious and fun to be around. His classes are an absolute blast. What a great find.

Oh my god oh my god oh my god!!! Best dance studio around! Instructors are amazing and I have the time of my life when I am there. I am new to swing and salsa but dance instructor Stew knows how to break everything down so that I can pick up the moves AND have fun while learning. I have been to studios before where the teachers made me fee like I had 2 left feet but he makes me alive. I have since started dragging my friends with me and spend our week nights learning new steps to try out on the dance floor on the weekends. If you want to have a blast and learn some new moves to try out on the dance floor OR for your wedding ... You have to come here

Stew is the owner and instructor at LA Dance Central. He's incredible. Such an awesome, genuine, fun guy, and a heck of a teacher. He taught my 2 left feet to dance better within 3 minutes. I've got about the rhythm of a rock prior to hanging with Stew, so I'm less than a beginner. He makes you comfortable, makes it fun, and the progress is crazy to me. I really can't imagine a better dance teacher. Not to mention he's an absolute expert who's been doing it all his life.
Thanks Stew! You're the man!!

Hubby and I are so grateful that we found this place. Stew is a wonderful teacher - super skilled, professional, fun, easy to understand and a total blast to dance with. This is just the combination we were looking for - professional instruction with a friendly atmosphere. YAY!

I am not a dancer at all, but when i did first step inside this studio, I change my mind. After two weeks of training with Stew my dancing experience increased 5 times from mybfirst walk in. Plus the price is right.
I am dance like a pro. Thank you Stew

My husband and I love this studio! Stew is the best instructor ever! He is fun, easy going, and makes every class very enjoyable. At the same time, he is an incredible instructor who knows how to clearly explain the new moves and techniques to students of all ages and levels, so they will feel good about learning something new every time they leave the studio. If you want to learn to dance or wish to become a better dancer, you should check the LA Dance Central out. Highly recommended!

Of course I think it's awesome. It is a haven for Professionals and students to learn and practice their dancing. Fair priced group classes and private lessons as well as 10.00 floor fees!

I always thought dance would be
To hard. My first class they made me feel
Right at home. The class was fun and everyone was friendly. I tried Hustle first, now maybe salsa too!

This place is the best! The new studio is beautiful and always filled with dancers and great energy. The classes are a nice small size and they offer private lessons for two which is a lot of fun and helps you learn faster. Stew is my favorite teacher, he's what keeps us coming back for more. We started out on a groupon, then came back to learn a dance for our wedding, and now we are learning swing and hustle just for the fun of it. Even my husband who was never a dancer before can pick up the skills and get into the lessons because of Stew's unique personal way of teaching! I can't recommend enough!!!

"Gotta dance!" That's what I said when I met dance instructor extraordinaire Stew Hartman at LA Dance Central in Burbank. I'm sorta rigid and uncoordinated, but I begged Stew to help me prepare for an ocean cruise where, as a single middle-aged man aboard a ship full of widows, I suspected that I would be summoned to the ballroom for a foxtrot or waltz. In a matter of just a few weeks, Stew had me ready to cut a rug (or at least a remnant) among the lovely antiques and their oxygen tanks. He gave me the steps and the self-confidence to be poised and calm. Alas, no marriage proposals resulted, but I still had a blast!
THANK YOU, STEW!!!
