Not the greatest dancer? Have you always wanted to learn and you just need a little push; something like a wedding? We recommend these DVD and online dance lessons to our clients and they thank us almost every time. It’s not going to make you dance like Jason Derulo, Derek Hough or Beyonce, but it will give you the confidence to get out on the dance floor and string together easy and popular moves in any way you like. You’ll never have to say I don’t dance again!

Please note that I have firsthand experience with iTunes. I recommend them because I have found iTunes to be extremely helpful, especially for managing your music on multiple devices (i.e. phones, tablets, laptops & desktops). They’ve set the standard for buying digital music and in the process reinvented the music industry. You are under no obligation to buy any songs so please do not spend your money unless you find this page to be helpful and you decide these songs are right for your collection.
