professional and helpful -- know how to teach.
My wife can ballroom dance and I can not. I thought for our wedding it would be nice if I could pull off at least one dance that looked like I knew what I was doing. We took a handful of private lessons from Mari and she was very patient and helpful. I can't say I'm a terrific dancer, but I idid improve a great deal and our first dance went very well. (also, we took a few swing group dance classes which we also enjoyed)
