Voted BEST DANCE LESSONS Morris| Essex Health & Life Magazine. Simone is by far the best teacher I’ve ever encountered. While her classes are relaxed and friendly, she still maintains a very serious and disciplined atmosphere during class. I appreciate her ability to break down even the most complex movements into easily understood pieces and then reinforce them. Unlike most teachers I’ve experienced in the past who spent most of their time on the steps, she understands and more importantly is able to teach that dancing isn’t just the steps, it’s the movement through space and time with those we dance with, and its that movement together that really is the essence of the dance.” Beate Bolen, Barclay Investments, Inc.
