Mikey & Andrew
"Ranardo was an absolute pro of a wedding choreographer. Professional, personable and patient, Ranardo helped us perfect our first dance and added a touch of flair and fun that it otherwise wouldn't have had. We received so many compliments from people praising us on our moves, and we couldn't have done it without Ranardo's help."

Tim & Jose
"Ranardo as a wedding choreographer was beyond what we expected! He has an incredible passion for the people he's teaching - it's quite infectious. What amazed me the most was his capacity to understand our weaknesses and strengths and turn us into professionals in front of our 125 guests while still having fun.  It's been a couple of years now, and whenever family and friends bring up our wedding, they bring up our first dance EVERY time!"

Justin & Michelle
"Ranardo was genius! He came up with an original routine and was able to teach it to us in just a few hours. It turned out great - our friends and family were really impressed and were shocked that we only practiced a couple of times. We definitely credit Ranardo for coming up with something that was easy to learn but made us look like pros."
