I really enjoy taking classes with you. You are so positive, patient & encouraging when you teach. I never sense any judgement towards students who are just learning to dance or if a person is having trouble picking up a new dance step. Your passion for dancing comes through so strongly. Thank you for sharing your love of dancing! With appreciation.

I decided to take dance lessons as a surprise for my wife, and I was a bit nervous as I had never had danced or taken lessons before. I found Debra after performing a search for dance lessons in northern Colorado and decided to request private lessons. I am so glad I did! Debra is a fantastic dance teacher that clearly is passionate about sharing her talent of dance with others. My impression with Debra is that she is without doubt an authority in dancing and teaching proper technique. She did a wonderful job of explaining dance steps and moves in a way I could understand and she was receptive to tailoring the lesson to accommodate my thoughts as to the best ways for me to learn. I feel that I have a good, solid foundation on the particular styles of dance I was instructed in and I now have the confidence to hit the dance floor. I look forward to enjoying the new skills I have and learning more. Thanks Debra!

I dance competitively as well as socially, and have taken classes, workshops and private lessons from many dance instructors in the Northern Colorado area and around the country. Debra is one of the best instructors that I have encountered. She is very knowledgeable, and her attitude is always friendly, warm, energetic and enthusiastic. Whether you’re an advanced dancer, or just setting foot on a dance floor for the first time, Debra is always very patient and encouraging. She makes it fun to learn how to dance! I highly recommend that you give her classes a try.

“Deb is terrific! She is vivacious, fun, and an excellent dancer – best of all, she is a great teacher! Deb makes learning to dance fun and easy – repeating the steps in simple combinations until you are ready to move on. She also takes the time to arrange dances, so that you get a chance to try out your new “moves” with other people that are learning to dance. If you’ve always wanted to learn to dance, don’t be afraid – try it! You’ll be glad you did!

I’m drawn to your classes for several reasons. Your teaching style is so non-judgmental, so positive and filled with enthusiasm and humor. You are quick to provide hands-on experience dancing with me, with all of us – and the corrections you make are always suggested rather than required. Your objective seems focused on helping me become a better dancer, a more successful dancer. I look forward to classes because they are fun, they have a variety of wonderful participants and I learn something new each session. I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically encourage people to try your classes – and I’ll continue to do so!

To all interested dance students. My wife and I have taken dance from a few different instructors and Debra has been one of the better instructors. She takes time to work with all of her students and recognizes that some are different styles of learners and will modify her techniques so as to be in tune (no pun intended) with how they learn. She will have partners switch which aids both the lead and the follower in recognizing different signals for different maneuvers. She is patient and also makes class fun, one of my regrets is that the classes are too short, and that my wife and I are unable to make enough time together to enjoy the dances we have been taught. I would recommend Debra as a dance instructor to all who want to learn to be better dancers and hopefully you can make the time to enjoy the dances that you learn from her.

Since sixth grade I dreamed of candlelight Cotillions. My dream came true when my husband and I signed up for instruction with Debra Endres in anticipation of our 25th anniversary. Under Debra’s excellent tutelage and encouraged by her infectious smile that sets the dance floor aglow we continue to learn. Over the course of a year, my husband gained confidence in leading and I’ve learned to trust enough to follow. Rotating partners helped with our techniques. We were surprised by one another’s
improvement when we rotated back together. Enrolling in dance classes has provided us with new acquaintances, affordable fun date nights, and a new activity we enjoy together. Since we can’t decide which dance is our favorite, we may have to try them all.
