        "Dominic is an absolute miracle worker, in my opinion.  Two months ago, I went to see him and said, Dominic, I'm almost 65 years old and I'm so tired of not being able to dance.  I'm tired of having zero self-confidence when it comes to dancing, and being afraid even to try to dance in public.  I'm tired of being at a wedding or a party, and having to hide out in the washroom when the music starts.  I want so much to be able to dance, like other people.  (It was really pathetic.)  Dominic nodded calmly, and proceeded to teach me the basics of the box step.  He was clear, kind, supportive, easy to follow, fun, flexible - a brilliant teacher.  Well, it's now two months later.  I can dance a decent waltz, foxtrot, rumba, cha cha, hustle, west coast swing and two step.  I have learned to follow - probably the most important skill of all.  I have confidence.  And I have discovered a source of joy that I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined: dancing!  I can dance!  Dominic has had a huge and positive impact on my life, and I'm so grateful to him.  If you want to learn to dance, and if you're as shy and insecure as I was, let him turn you into a dancer, too!"

"Dominic Boyer is a great dance instructor! My fiancĂ© and I had come to Dominic for private lessons to learn to dance for our wedding. We had never danced before and were really terrible. He was extremely patient with us while we learned the basics of rumba and completely choreographed our first dance from scratch. He challenged our skills and made sure that the dance displayed our personalities.  He also helped us get the confidence we needed to pull it off which absolutely blew all of our guests away.  He was flexible to make the lessons work with our busy schedules and made us feel very comfortable. Not only that, he inspired a love of dance within us. We couldn't have done it without him. Thanks Dominic!"

"Dominic has been a great teacher.  I have been taking lessons with him for about six months. His range of dances is excellent and his teaching style is great - he pushes when necessary and lays back when he sees that I need to take things easier.

if you're looking for someone to teach you a wedding dance, improve your social dancing skills, do a show - Dominic is your man.
Dominic's range of dances is also impressive.  I've taken International and American style ballroom with him.  I've learned salsa, blues, and even seen him to hip-hop."
I've taken group lessons and private lessons, but this is the most supportive learning environment that I've encountered."

"Dominic was an amazing teacher!!! I strongly recommend everyone to go with Dom.  Dom taught me and my fiance John the basics moves, we then went on and Dom taught us some more steps that we could of never learnt on our own.  He created our wedding "first dance".   We are so happy that we went with him. 

Dom is very kind, patient and a great leader.   Doms a great dancer with lots of experience.  We want to thank you Dom for everything!  It was super fun!
We will be back !!!

"We recently started dance classes with Dominic so that we appear to know
how to dance at our wedding. Dominic has been incredibly patient with us and is excellent at breaking down the steps into manageable pieces. By the end of the first lesson, we were already surprised by how much we had learned. He's an excellent teacher and an incredibly skilled dancer. We went to him without any experience at all and feel confident that we'll be capable of not embarrassing ourselves at our wedding. If you're looking for dance classes at very reasonable rates, go with Dominic, you won't be disappointed."

"Dominic was amazing. He helped my husband and I to dance just before our wedding. It was super short notice but we was more then accommodating! Not only did he teach us dance, he helped choreograph the whole thing. We will definitely be going back to learn some more!"

"Dominic is probably the best instructor I've had so far! He would drill me 999 times (okay, maybe 12 times) on the same technique over and over until I've almost perfected it. And he is VERY patient with me because I swear I have two left feet! I really appreciate his humor and patience and friendliness because I'm a very shy student. With him, I feel like he's a good friend of mine trying to teach me the steps of tango and where my feet are supposed to be! I highly recommend him and if I ever want to perfect my technique, he's the one I'd look for!"

"We just finished taking 6 fantastic private lessons with Dominic, and we would completely recommend him to anyone thinking about improving their skills or just starting to learn dance. We had taken group salsa lessons before and enjoyed it, but had no help from the busy instructors. What a great opportunity it was to have Dominic to work with us just at our skill level, to diagnose our problem areas, and to help us sort out those areas to improve our overall technique. Dominic was patient, reliable, fun, and professional. He loves what he does and it shows in his teaching. It was great exercise, of course, and it was great for us as a couple to grow in our skills together. We know there is so much more for us to learn in the future, but after just 6 lessons, we are ready to rock it at the salsa bar now and feel comfortable!"

"Dominic was instrumental in helping my fiancee and I learn ballroom dancing for our wedding. He was flexible, knowledgeable and friendly. Even though it was our first time taking ballroom lessons, he made us feel at ease and came up with creative choreography for our special day. Thank you Dominic for all your hard work! "

"I was reluctant to take ballroom dance classes since I've had previous experience with ballroom instructors that not only charged more than it can ever be justified for a dance class but were also very uninterested in my improvement and tried to slow down my progress so that they can earn more. A good friend of mine recommended me Dominic and I agreed to give his teaching a try. Best decision in my dance career so far! His approach is perfectly tailored to the needs of his students, combining a fun, relaxed atmosphere with clear and simple instructions anyone can follow. Dominic is a very talented teacher who knows how to challenge without pushing the limits too far. I recommend him to dancers from all levels - from beginners to professionals, and I can assure you it's a guarantee that you will enjoy his classes and improve your skills considerably. The only thing that I found a bit frustrating was that because he is such a popular dance instructor, it's sometimes hard to schedule classes with him. Despite that, it's worth the wait!"

"Dominic is a knowledgeable, patient and intuitive teacher. He seems to gracefully balance the art of challenging and encouraging his student with his down to earth approach. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to dance in a supportive and fun filled environment. Two thumbs up!!"

"My fiancee and I signed up with Dominic to learn ballroom dancing before our wedding. In only 3 lessons, he made us (total amateurs) be able to dance decently for the most special day of our life. He was very patient, professional and friendly. He definitely knew a lot about dance, and was able to choreograph a dance specially for us. Thank you Dominic for your hard work and good service! Also, his dancing lessons are reasonably priced considering his experience and knowledge."

"Dominic is very professional and is very good at picking the little things to work on to improve the overall performance. He focusses a lot on techniques and will help you practice until you perfect the skill. I would recommend Dominic if you want someone to go along at your pace and pushes you to succeed at the same time.

"Dominic gave me a great tip on how to manage my core muscles when leaning and dipping in Tango that has really improved my dance and my connection with my partner! I was struggling and not understanding why the move wasn't working, and he worked with me until I got it!"

"Dominic is an intelligent and intuitive teacher who is able to recognize a student's natural strengths and maximize them to their full potential. He is inspiring and passionate about his work, and encourages his students to challenge themselves and be inspired as well. I have learned how to dance Blues style dance with Dominic, and I loved it! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a teacher who is willing to be by their side each step of the way and really show them how to love the dance "

"For a few years, I've attended various dance workshops. I felt the cost of private lessons would be too high. Yet, I never really learned much since my dance partners were also beginners or intermediate like me. The consequence being that I spent much more money on these various workshops, without really progressing, than with the dance lessons I've taken with Dominic.
Dominic is a master at his art and doesn't just try to rush through the learning steps. He takes his time to start at the beginning, musicality, hands, feet and body positions. Technique is important for him, and so it should be I believe. But technique is not all. Dominic feels his art. He teaches you how to dance with your heart, your emotions, to let go. 
Dominic is also extremely patient! Believe me, he needed patience with me since I am used to leading being tall and athletic. 
I chose Dominic at first because he was bilingual... but I got much more then dancing lessons in French! Dominic is slowly building my confidence, helping me to feel the music, to follow the rhythms. 
I would definitely recommend Dominic, whatever your dance level is. Plus, his smile and awe-inspiring movements are a killer!"
