“Ari Levitt – absolutely one of the finest dance teachers and dancers I know. His teaching style is clear and thoughtful, with a generous dash of humor. He is extremely creative and he teaches dancers how to take steps and styling from one dance form to other dances in interesting and fun ways. His blues dancing is sensational.”

–Kurt Reisser, Denver, CO

"After all the years of lessons I’ve had, YOUR CLASS taught me how to be more receptive to my partners energy and intention in ways more subtle than I ever imagined. The synch and flow with them is a real high….. and I’m dancing with top leads now. Thanks so much!

You clearly know that moves alone don’t make a dancer. You show moves in a clear way I can easily absorb, but even more, you teach the secrets of real connection with one’s partner that makes dancing with them feel so extraordinarily good."

– Julie Minns, Seattle, WA
