What our students say?
We got married on 16th December 2006 and in preparation for our wedding, we needed to perfect our First Dance. The choice to go to Lourd Vijay's Dance Studio was an easy one to make based on their reputation. I have known Lourd since our College days and he is an exceptional dancer.
Our first dance was choreographed by LVDS. It was a wonderful experience to learn the basics as well as a few advanced moves for the dance. LVDS’s instructors are truly professional who combine the art & technical aspects of dance with an easy going manner. Their patience with us, amateurs, was commendable.
We enjoyed every dance class from learning basic steps to swing, jive & cha-cha in a matter of 6 sessions. All we had to do was to choose the First Dance song, which was Moondance by Van Morrison and the team of LVDS did the rest. The most important aspect of the learning was the confidence they instilled in us. Thank You so much for making our Wedding Dance beautiful!! You Guys Rock. Keep up the good work!!

The “lourd of the dance” His teaching style and enthusiasm is such that you know his goal is truly for you to be the best dancer you can be. His group classes are clear, concise and fun! Under His guidance we have gone from novice dancers to ahem.. intermediate.. and that for us is an achievement. A teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth…. So much so that sometimes we changed his name to Rude Vijay…. He provides a thorough understanding of all aspects of dancing - body movement, the "feel" of the dance, and the overall theory of each step. He is incredibly knowledgeable and always explains why and how a step works. He has this amazing ability to know exactly what works to make you dance better than you ever thought you could--and best of all, you have GREAT FUN in the process! Spoilt with Lourd we are now and no other teacher will suffice ! Cant wait for the next set of dance lessons to begin!
Lourd Vijay’s Dance Studio became my second home over the past two years. Not only because I spent so much time there, but also because the people there seemed to be as close as family. From my first salsa class when I was 14 till today every moment I have spent in the studio has made indelible memories! I have had the honor and privilege to have been taught by some of the most proficient, warm, patient, inspiring and motivating instructors here who had me do steps I only used to dream of being able to do! The positive energy, the enthusiasm, the passion and the great crowd in and outside class makes this place hard to stay away from! LVDS is the only place that can bring that inner dancer out to its fullest potential! How every class here is so incredibly fun and exhilarating and yet equally productive is amazing. LVDS is an institution that is beyond comparison and I can personally say that I have had the time of my life here.
