‚ÄčIVY is the perfect mix of amazing experiences with amazing people. IVY isn't just yet another social club - it's a gathering of incredibly successful and intelligent people who I consider friends, if not amazing individuals that I admire. You can meet everyone from top-tier professors to off-the-wall artists at the same event, and everyone, regardless of background or industry, is incredibly welcoming, outgoing, and interesting. Beyond IVY's amazing people, its events are superb. I've done incredible things with IVY: I've cruised down roads in Havana in a drop-top convertible from the '50s, raced across a glacier in Iceland, zip lined across trees in West Virginia, attended a fun/retro summer camp in Connecticut, and attended amazing lectures by thought leaders in virtually every industry. The events are as varied as they are enjoyable, and all feel positively effortless despite the incredible efforts made by IVY's events team. Needless to say, the price for admission into IVY is well worth it - it's a small cost for entrance into an amazing club that has genuinely made my life better in every respect. I can't recommend it enough.

I cannot speak for the studio, but was not impressed with the correspondence I had. I've been competitively dancing for eight years. I had a few friends - all male - who were VERY nervously interested in trying ballroom dance as well, so I contacted this studio to make sure they'd be welcome and that they'd be able to dance with girls around their own age. The response I received, in relevant part: "Though we do have people and women of that age in our classes I would not take a chance to guarantee they will show up this weekend, be single or be interested in dancing with these guys who have not started their training yet. So let's pass on inviting them to my studio. They will be better off going to some bar." This is completely inappropriate and exactly the sort of attitude that keeps prospective dancers out of the dancing world. Acting as if a few nervous guys (some of them gay, by the way...) are automatically looking to pick up women is inappropriate, not to mention unwelcoming. None of the many studios I have been with across the country have ever behaved this way. Needless to say, this studio lost a lot of potential customers.

This is a word-class studio without peer and unquestionably the best place you can go for dance lessons of any kind and at any level. DCDA is a new ballroom dance studio in Fairfax that's the home of the best dance coaches in the D.C. area. As a new facility, DCDA is incredibly bright, clean, and inviting. DCDA has a huge schedule packed with group classes for beginners through high-level competitive dancers in virtually every style under the sun - Standard (e.g. Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Quickstep), Latin (e.g. Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive, Samba), social dancing (e.g. Salsa), and even exercise dances like Zumba. Wedding dance lessons are also offered. Prices here are always extremely reasonable across the board, particularly given the quality of dance instruction and the reasonable size of the group classes. Unlike many other dance studios, DCDA makes dance fun and accessible. The classes here are detailed without being overwhelming and invigorating without being exhausting. As such, beginners can learn a lot without being intimidated, and experienced dancers can be challenged without becoming bored. Because everyone here is - without exception - friendly and talented, there are no awkward moments. Rather, there's a sort of intoxicating accessibility to classes here that I've never seen at any other studio: even the most relatively complicated topics are made understandable, fun, and useful. As amazing as the group classes here are, the private lessons are also amazing. The current instructors at DCDA - Lydia Petrigova and Anna Mikhed - are world-renowned competitors with a keen eye in virtually every aspect of ballroom dancing, which has led them to coach some truly amazing competitive couples. Bluntly put, their insight is worth its weight in gold. I've been working with Lydia for years now, and it's been the best thing that's ever happened to my dance career. If you have even a scintilla of interest in dance, you owe it to yourself to go to DCDA!
