"I wanted to thank you so much for all of your help. We are both reserved and don't like being the centre of attention at parties so we were dreading our first dance, but after working with you we both felt at ease and enjoyed our time together at our wedding. Our lessons served as a weekly date night and helped us remain connected to our love for one another. We'd love to work with you again."

Dear Sir or Madam:
Please accept this letter as an affirmation of my recommendation for Bieje Chapman to join your organization. This endorsement serves not just for her impressive teaching aptitude but also her vast dancing facility.
My name is Richard Marsden; I am a former New York City Ballet dancer and have been at Ballet Arts Center for Dance in New York for over 7 years. During this past year, I have had the pleasure of teaching and coaching Bieje in my weekly classes and performance workshops. From day one, she has stood out with her impressive ability to pick up steps and combinations quickly and then demonstrate for others. She has a wonderful, natural ease in her dancing and this resonates in the manner in which she instructs fellow students. Her outgoing and positive demeanor, along with her encouraging nature, enables the class (of which there are participants of all ages and levels) to feel confident in their bodies and skills creating an atmosphere conducive to fostering talent.
Bieje is truly a natural in the field of dance. I have seen hundreds of students during my time as a teacher and very few have the proportion for performing and teaching like she does. It has been my honor to work with her, and I trust she will leave the same indelible mark as your employee.
Very truly yours,
Jennifer and Jon Mulhern
"Bieje is a fantastic instructor for
couples with all levels of dance training.
She is a positive, encouraging, and
experienced instructor. My fiance', who
is not a dancer, now LOVES ballroom
dance because of her! We can't wait
until our next lesson!"
"I have never been to a
wedding before where I was not only able to
learn a new style of dance, but alsomeet so many
other family members and friends of the
bride and groom. Bieje was able to gain the attention of the entire reception, teach enough swing steps to make everyone feel like dance pros, and by having us switch partners, gave everyone the chance to mingle and enjoy the evening together. What an amazing time we all had!

"It was such a great idea to have a dance
lesson at a wedding reception to relax people,
get them moving with confidence, mingle and
get out of their comfort zone. Bieje's instructions were clear and great for movers
and non movers. As the class progressed she encouraged everyone to work to their own
comfort level and even picked people out to demonstrate what they had learned. By
the end everyone was laughing, smiling and having a great time."
