I highly recommend kid ballroom classes at Evoke! I love that my 10 year old daughter is learning the type of dances that she can use throughout her life. Jeff Rakowski and Nadiia are amazing teachers! They are both patient, kind and lots of fun! In my daughter's words,   " Coming here calms me after a hard day at school!"

With the help of Jeffrey, I completed my very first showcase dance at the Motown Showdown and won first place! Jeffrey is an awesome teacher!

         My husband and I (a highly uncoordinated engineer and a highly uncoordinated legal assistant) started taking lessons with Jeff a couple months before our wedding. We started lessons just hoping to learn the basics - something slightly more impressive than the 8th grade sway - little did we know that after just six lessons we’d end up with a perfectly choreographed dance ending with a lift! The last few weeks leading up to your wedding will be filled with stress, and you’ll be tired from tying loose ends, but your dance lessons will help get you to the finish line. Thanks to Jeff, our first dance as husband and wife was our victory lap. It was the highlight of our reception and our guests went wild for it. Now we’re continuing lessons just for fun! This is the perfect date night, it’s powerful stress relief, and you’ll have an unforgettable dance to show for it. Don’t worry about how nice your centerpieces, wedding favors, and decorations are - this is the most worthwhile expense to include in your wedding budget.

We highly recommend Evoke Ballroom. We came to Jeff Rakowski with absolutely no dance experience at all. We wanted to learn "some" basic ballroom so that we could dance when we go on cruises and at social gatherings. Well, the rest is history. We have learned so much from Jeff and have so much fun taking lessons. Jeff is so patient and has such a great sense of humor. Anyone who wants to start from square one or who wants to enhance their dance experience should call Evoke to start their lessons. You will be happy that you did. I promise!!!
