My husband and I took some dance lessons with Sean and even though we have different skill levels, he was able to work with us individually and together as a couple to move effortlessly on the dance floor.
I have had the pleasure of taking private lessons and dance classes with Sean and have been to dances where he was a DJ, and I can tell you, he is one of kind! So don’t waitsign onyou are in for a real treat!

One of the best dances I've EVER had in my LIFE was with Sean...it was challenging and fun and one of the best connections I've ever had while dancing... It was as good as it gets. If I could dance like that with everybody, I'd never stop dancing.
