This studio is a joke. First of all both of the teachers are horrible dancers. The owner is constantly using the word "certified," but that means absolutely nothing. Look at the Dr. in the Michael Jackson case... he was licensed and he was not competent! Just because you have a title doesn't mean you really earned it. It's also a well known fact that Tim is a former instructor at Black Tie who was fired for sleeping with a married student... Cari (now his assistant). She has been taking lessons for over 5 years and she still can't dance to save her life! Don't waste your time with these people. Steer clear of Sawmill on Saturday nights where they frequent. Apparently Cari can't find a babysitter for her kids, so she often totes them along until the wee hours of the morning. If you want to learn to dance, go someplace else. If you want to dwell with bottom feeders, hang out with these two!

your criticism is noted but in truth Cari is a sweetheart

AUTHOR: Diane - ()

I just want to give a shout out to my friend Cari. She has done alot of free lessons, she has instructed, she has taught, she has been a friend. She has encouraged others less fortunate as she worked with disabled kids in the school system, she has loved in the face of persecution with enemies growing because when she was kicked out of a certain dance studio instead of crying about it, she made lemonade out of those lemons, and started her own dance studio so you could ask yourself Why? Why, don't they like her when she's fun, she's shiny, she's bright, bubbly, vivacious, energetic and very friendly. She's a great mom from my perspective as I see her taking her kids everywhere to keep an eye on them which is not a bad idea but yeah I remember that the only time that she ever took her kids to Sawmill was when they did a ballroom dance performance which I think is a wonderful thing for them to be performing actually one of them is already in junior high. So to answer the question why, why don't people like her just from what I've experienced with some people it has a lot to do with the fact that they can't control her, they can't abuse her, and they can't depress her as she just keeps doing things that motivate her. I've heard people say that she's to blame for their business not surviving when she started her own business, in competition of theirs, really again I ask the question was it really her fault or did you make it happen yourself when you pushed her out the door, and started gossiping about her which isolated everybody from harmony and unity in the group? I'm not sure who wrote this and I pray to God it wasn't those who did this to her at the old studio but I do know this for a fact that nobody should be treated the way Cari was treated...no she's not perfect, I'm not perfect, nobody's perfect, and if we knew that reality none of us would be talking right now.

All about dance rocks

AUTHOR: Dancer - (United States of America)

I love this studio and all the instructors. Their level of ballroom knowledge is incredible. Cari does a fantastic job dancing....and teaching children's ballroom. Cari shines...and I'm sure that's why there is jealousy w competitors. Tim is fantastic, fun, outgoing and energetic instructor. Dr. Velasquez is the best!

No need to bring up peoples personal lives...especially when your attacks r inaccurate and immature.

Dance parties..so much fun.

Keep up good work all about dance. There's a reason u r winning ;)

Being rude and name calling gets you no where

AUTHOR: hello - (United States of America)

I really like All About Dance Studio.  I find the instructors very competent, patient and reputable.  I find no need to call names or point out past mistakes.  If you are unsatisfied with their services then take your desires for dancing elsewhere. 

When you start throwing insults it shows your own immaturity, inability to control your emotional outbursts and lack of communicating in an effective matter.  There are many people who are very happy satisfied with the dance lessons and dance parties held at All About Dance Studio including myself.  

As for the instructors personal lives....it's no one's business but their own.  The only time a complaint should be made to this extent should be if it is negatively impacting your safety, health or others...not simply because you may have a personal vendetta.  Don't forget how you speak says more about you than what you're saying about others.

Jealous Competitors

AUTHOR: All About Dance - (United States of America)

All About Dance is a very reputable studio.  Now owned by Dr. Velasquez and managed by Cari Pisano, our studio is doing incredible well, and we are growing like crazy! 

Dr. Velasquez is a 2 x champion American Style 9 dance and National championship in the rhythm category. Steve has won 9 gold medals in the national championship and 300 awards. Dr. Valasquez has been ballroom dancing, competing and teaching since 1996.

Tim Warner:

A dance Instructor with over 8 years ballroom and Latin teaching experience. I have been certified by Cher Rutherford in American Ballroom Dance. I have competed in numerous showcases, competitions, and dance expos.

The person or "Competitive Business" who wrote this report, is simply intimidated.  Why are other students from "other" studios leaving to come to All About Dance Productions?  Why has our private lessons sky rocketed? 

Cari is a former student of another studio, who has come so far in her dancing since she left and joined All About Dance and partnered to work with Tim Warner and Dr. Velasquez.  Cari is now being trained under Dr. Velasquez as an instructor.  Cari is very inspirational, as she dances and teaches, while coping with a medical condition.  Students love her!  Guys fight to dance with her!  She is a very advanced dancer.  Her potential is huge! 

There is a reason Cari and Tim have gained so much popularity at Sawmill Creek, they stand out compared to other studios...and they gain attention everywhere they go.  A great partnership.  Knowledgeable in their dancing. 

Cari's children only attend Sawmill Creek when they are there to go swimming, so that rumor is completely false. 

This attack on a Certified Studio only proves we are doing something right!  Even without the slander, our "growth" in students "proves it!  Our knowledge is the best in the area.  No one compares to Dr. Steven Velasquez.

Once our students read this, they will be very upset with "whoever" wrote the report (we can pretty much figure out who it is) because our students are VERY HAPPY WITH OUR STUDIO, OUR GREAT LOCATION (YES, WE ACTUALLY HAVE OUR OWN STUDIO), AND THE QUALITY OF INSTRUCTION THEY RECEIVE.
