What They’re Saying

Wonderful teacher, wonderful experience! Tremendous thanks to Kara Fabina for providing an exhilarating blues dance lesson at our wedding for our guests last October. Kara's passion for the dance was so infectious and our guests raved about the lesson. Kara helped make our wedding very special and we wholeheartedly recommend her!

- Abby & ZachOctober 6, 2018

Kara poses that rare mix of technical precision and masterful body mechanics, while at the same time embodying playfulness, creativity, and improvisation in her dance. Whether you're a partner, spectator, or student, it's a joy to be involved with her. To say she is "world class" is being slightly modest.

I had a private lesson with Kara Fabina. The specific purpose of the lesson was to re-learn Lindy Hop after a long time away from the dance. She was prompt, listened carefully to my goals, assessed my basic competency and then went to work. She worked exceptionally well with her partner. In short, she was professional, thorough, and fun! I went for a refresher and found myself actually stepping up more than I thought possible.

What do I need to know about working with Kara on a first dance?

First we get in touch to schedule our first lesson. You can use the contact form.

For couples preparing for their first dance, we always discuss music choices before our first lesson together. Having it narrowed down to a few songs before we start is helpful.

During our first lesson, we lay the foundation – how to connect, move, and some basic vocabulary.

In the next few lessons we will continue with more advanced moves while fine tuning what you have already learned. Depending on how elaborate you would like your first dance to be, you might choose a package with more lessons.

In our final lesson, we add the finishing touches and practice, practice, practice.
