My husband and I recently completed a package of dance lessons at the Hamby Ballroom Dance Studio. We adored our instructor, Dick, who was patient, kind, and made us laugh, all of which helped us relax and learn the proper dance steps. Over the course of 1.5 months, we got enough of the American foxtrot down to make the first dance look successful. Thank you, Dick and Suzanne!  5

I had taken several dance classes there and spent most of my precious time WATCHING Maureen and Brian catering to a couple there that had taken several lessons before. I also watched in utter disbelief and dismay Maureen fooling around with the female of this couple. They were dancing together having fun doing advanced and unrelated dance moves too much of the time. They had spent an inappropriately long time talking about unrelated topics (clothes, etc!) while I stood in disbelief and sadness that I wasn't learning the dance moves because the teachers were focusing on people that had spent more money there over time. *** It was like being at a dance and watching with envy wanting to dance like the people dancing were dancing. Hello?? That is why I took these lessons!!***  When I had written Suzanne Hamby to complain- and tell her how much I would love to learn these steps-and how the teachers were just not spending an appropriate and effective amount of time teaching me- she wrote back "You are a newcomer to the Sunday classes. Scott and Lindsay have been coming for years and are now quite good friends with Brian & Maureen. Since Scott and Lindsay have taken these classes so many times in the past, Brian and Maureen show them some advanced technique and arm styling to keep them interested. Otherwise the classes would be a bit too basic for them"  Is this any way to teach?? By showing more favoritism towards people that have spent more money and practically ignoring a newcomer?? Maybe I too, would've spent more money (I had already spent quite a bit- taking the 6 week classes over twice!) if I had been learning and the teaching was more effective and appropriate!   1
