Here Is What Our Clients Are Saying...


Jim ColesWNEP Logo

"When given the opportunity to learn with Debbie I ran with it. Instead of running, Debbie taught me to step, slide, sway and glide. A potentially nerve-wracking experience turned into a rewarding one.

Debbie's patient approach combined with her knowledge and versatility made every practice a pleasure. Whether it's her gracefulness with professionals or her grace with beginners, Debbie is a joy, every step of the way."

Mike & Bette Cefalo

"Bette and I have been dancing for more than 20 years and were asked to do a showcase dance on TV. We asked Debbie to choreograph the routine... she did a marvelous job. She taught us steps we never did before and still do many of the steps today. It's been more than five years since that TV dance.

Debbie is patient with her students, she has a way of easing tension and is a pleasure to be with. We say this as we have been taught by more than 9 different instructors in our dancing. You will enjoy Debbie as a teacher and you will learn with ease from her. All you have to do is follow her directions."

Daina & Tim Cali

"My fiancé and I were to be married in a little over a month. Since neither one of us really knew how to dance we decided to go to Step By Step for some dance lessons. Debbie was an unbelievable teacher. In 11 dance lessons she was able to teach us a one of a kind dance routine that we would perform at our wedding. The ballroom erupted with applause and cheers. It made what was already a great night even better. Thank you Debbie for making our wishes come true. We can't wait to see you again!"

Marc Wyandt

"We had such a wonderful experience at Step by Step learning our first dance for our wedding. Debbie and Missy were extremely patient and helpful throughout the entire process. They made us feel comfortable, as we were both beginners, and guided us every step of the way. By the end of our lessons, Debbie & Missy had us confident and because of their efforts, we had an enjoyable and most importantly, memorable first dance. To sum up the experience, we had a blast!"

Kevin Norris

"Step by Step is a great place to learn ballroom dancing, and Debbie is a great teacher. Whether you are interested in dance for weddings, parties, or just to do something different, Debbie is the perfect teacher for you. From the first lesson Debbie put me at ease. She guides you over the initial awkwardness and embarrassment with quiet thoughtful encouragement. Dances are broken down into component parts so that you understand what you are doing, and if you're a beginner, you do not get overwhelmed. Her directions and demonstrations are clear, and she has remarkable patience. If you are like me, after a few lessons, you will be hooked: you will want to learn more and more about ballroom dancing and will look forward to every lesson.

Step by Step also offers a lot of opportunities to practice your dancing with parties, workshops and group classes. And finally, it's a great place to meet other people also interested in dance. I've been coming here now for over two years, and I really recommend it."

"An outstanding teacher with marvelous patience - Debbie makes learning how to dance fun."

Ellie & Jason

"Our experience with Debbie during our private lessons was amazing. Jason & I have been together for nine years and in all that time never danced together. When we decided to get married, we knew dancing was an important part of the reception, so we found Debbie. In ten short lessons she made us feel comfortable with dance. Debbie is a very warm and inviting person who can teach another to dance with little experience and grow into a more confident performer."

Linsay & Kevin Walsh

"With no prior dance experience, our goal was to look good and feel comfortable for our first dance together as husband and wife. We started to feel comfortable almost immediately under Debbie's instruction. Her expertise and patience made what was complicated seem simple and enabled us to achieve our goal faster than we thought possible. After a stressful day at work it was a pleasure to go to dance class where all we had to think about was which step to take next. It was stress-relieving and fun, and we know that we'll have a blast at our wedding."

Ron & Mary Ann Gordish

"We have been taking dancing lessons from Step By Step for two months and have had a lot of fun. In that short time we have become confident enough to dance the Salsa, Merengue, Waltz, and Swing at three events we recently attended. We plan to continue learning both new steps and new dances."

"We had an amazing experience with Debbie at Step By Step Dance Studio learning and practicing for our 1st dance. I was sad that our wedding came so fast but we will be back to learn more! It was so much fun! We felt so confident to have our 1st dance in front of all our family & friends. Thank you Debbie!"

Tom & Carolyn
Blakeslee, PA

"We came to Step By Step to do our own first dance for our wedding. Debbie was very enthusiastic and started out with the easier steps and built us up to doing our entire routine. When we finally had our first dance arranged we couldn't have been happier. Thank you Debbie! You helped make our wedding even more special! We will be back for more lessons in the future."

Chris & Satisha

"Preparing for the first dance seemed nerve-racking but within the first lesson we felt comfortable knowing we would be well prepared for our big day. Debbie, our instructor choreographed within our skill level while still making the dance look beautiful. Thank you for preparing us for our big moment!"
