“Dancing is creating a sculpture that is visible
only for a moment.”
If you are looking for a dance instructor, look no further! Priti is amazing! We hired her to come and teach dance to our clients at our holiday party. What a find! She is funny, engaging and commands such a positive fun presence. She had everyone dancing, even the sticklers in the corner. By the end of the evening (and even the next day) everyone was raving about the experience and wondering where we had found her! Now, we are only left wondering when can we invite her back?!?
Working with Priti Gupta-Udeshi was such a refreshing experience! She recently choreographed a wedding dance sequence for the family wedding and was able to cater to dancers of various levels of expertise / style / comfort levels (both both in person and via video) with such ease and elan. Her dance move analogies are hilarious, relatable and so easy to remember. We had a fantastic sequence and practicing for the dance was one of the best memories my family has of the wedding. Thank you Priti.. we miss you now that you have moved.
Would highly recommend her. We hired to help us with our first dance. The routine she designed fits me and my fiance's strength and capability. She's always punctual and communicates clearly.
She's truly passionate about dancing and she taught us the importance of rhythm and emotions. We have taken 10 lessons with her and have decided to keep working with her.
