Andrew is an inspiring, caring and extremely patient teacher and I don’t say that lightly! He always gives 110% as he wants the best from his students. Andrew has a serious amount of experience and his teaching style is meticulous but in a good way (with an added dose of humour). I recommend both his classes and one on one lessons. He happens to be also a very charismatic and brilliantly talented dancer! Yvonne – London
I always find it nerve-wracking starting with a new teacher. And having recently decided to enter the same-sex dance circuit, I did worry whether my partner and I would find a teacher who was comfortable teaching us. But Andrew has been true professional from day one.
Within minutes of meeting, he was choreographing fun new routines for us, becoming totally involved and never fazed by the situation. He selects steps that both work to our individual strengths and that we would enjoy doing, and if we struggle with anything he will always encourage us, ensuring we never lose confidence.
But most importantly, Andrew always listens to exactly what we want. If there is something we want to change we are never afraid to speak out, as he will come up with a solution quickly and without question.
I’m glad we chose to work with him, and now Andrew’s lessons have become something I look forward to each week. Tim – London
Dance is a way of communicating ones inner thoughts and feelings. Whether you’re young or old, you need someone to show you step-by-step a way of communicating and interpreting the music heard and played around you. You need to be taught the language and theory of dance. Andrew is that instrument you require.
I came to dance very late in life and basically had two left feet and no idea how to express my movement to the music played around me. Andrew broke down every step and movement for me and made me listen to the beat of the music I heard. It took many times and repeated demonstrations by Andrew for me to understand and carry out the movements I required in my ballroom and latin.
So it is never too late in life to go out there, learn from Andrew and then spend many years with family and friends moving to the music and enjoying a dance social life. Sarah Moon – Guernsey
As a beginner who had only ever attended group social dance classes, I decided to fulfill a dream and book a lesson with a very talented professional whilst on a trip to London.
It turns out Andrew Cuerden is the most patient, understanding teacher on the planet, going over things again and again until even I understood. I had the most wonderful experience and came away so inspired with such a lot of knowledge that even my own teachers noticed a difference in my dancing. I would recommend that everyone should have a lesson with this amazing man as a boost to their dancing confidence. You won’t regret it!
