Our names are John Marusich & Cameron Acheson. John is from Florida, and Cameron is from Alabama; we now live in Logan Square.

We are getting married in September, and wanted to take classes to help us with our first dance. We had no experience before Ballroom Dance Chicago and have been taking lessons for four months.

The studio has a really wonderful atmosphere. We were both really nervous about taking classes, but have felt so comfortable here from day one. We are so excited that we came to BDC; it's been a really great experience for us!

What are your favorite style of dance?

John's is the Waltz, Cameron's is Swing.

But first and foremost, we want to have fun! We also want to learn how to be better dance partners for each other, so that when we have our first dance in September, we are comfortable and relaxed.

Why do you keep coming back to BDC?

We love the instructors! Matthew has been so encouraging, and also always pushes us to keep learning and improving.

Do you use your dance skills in any social settings (like out at a bar or gala or at studio parties)?

Not yet, but we are excited about doing this in the future!

What would you say to someone that is thinking about taking classes at BDC?

Go for it! We enjoy our weekly classes so much; we'd really recommend that you give it a try.
