"I’ve been taking lessons for over two years now and Grace is one of my favorite instructors. She makes dance technique intuitive for students at all levels. She has a great deal of knowledge of blues idiom dances and blues idiom dances across the wide spectrum of what we call ‘blues’. She can help you zero in on what you want to get out of lessons and will tailor private lessons accordingly. But most importantly she makes learning fun! Grace will make you want to keep improving as a dancer. I highly recommend Grace Jones-Taylor as a dance instructor."

"I've taken several privates from Grace. She's always been patient and, thorough with a wide range of content within blues vernacular. She has taken a personal interest in my development as a student that well exceeds the call of duty and as a result, has helped enable my development as a dancer. "

"One of our criteria for selecting a dance instructor for our wedding dance was to find someone with whom the groom would be comfortable—he was completely new to dancing and felt somewhat apprehensive about learning. Having known Grace for several years, I was confident that she would be a good personality match to reduce Will's fears about dancing. The first session went so well that the nervous groom came home after the lesson and suggested moving our living room coffee table aside to practice a few more times before the night ended! It takes a really great instructor like Grace to spark an interest like that in someone anxious about dancing and then to support that new dancer so that it becomes a positive, fun experience. Grace was extremely patient and encouraging, and she addressed both of our learning styles to help us dance in sync together and dance our first dance confidently and with joy."
