Don't Listen to Us. Listen to Our Students...
The teachers are always upbeat, encouraging, and inspiring. They make even the most challenging steps fun to learn! No matter how tired I am when I come to Bachata dance classes, I always leave feeling energized. Thank you for all you have taught me!
The classes are top quality and probably the best instructors in the city. You will not be disappointed with this school as classes are well attended. Students are from all over the city and come to this school to learn from these instructors
The dance classes are very structured.
The dance classes are very structured. They start out easy and then the movements become more challenging as you take the higher level classes. Most of the students are able to pick up the dance quite easily when the instructor goes through the movements very slowly and with explanation. The best part of the classes is that they allow you to record the steps/ moves at the end of the class which is very helpful for students who want to practice.
Turns out to be a wonderful experience.
My very first time taking any dance class. Turns out to be a wonderful experience. I have never danced before and found the classes to be fun and instructors friendly. I would recommend these salsa classes for beginners looking for a good place to learn.
They are easy going and make the class so much fun.
I really like the instructors. They are easy going and make the class so much fun. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to dance but surprisingly I was able to pick up the steps quickly. They have a lot of friendly helpers that assist you in your steps.
Instructors are very talented.
Registered for salsa classes with my sister. My sister thought it was pretty cool. Anyways the instructors are very talented. Looking forward to the next class. Haven't gone to a salsa club yet but can't wait to try my new salsa moves.
You're going to have a lot of fun.
Went to a drop in salsa class today. I absolutely love it!! It's true what the others people say about this school. You're going to have a lot of fun. It's well worth the money.
Kind and fun throughout all of our classes.
I just want to say thank you for being so patient, kind and fun throughout all of our classes. When I come to your class my heavy load of the week at work or home just melts away, so I thank you from my heart.
I’m amazed by how far I’ve come.
The teachers are always upbeat, encouraging, and inspiring. They make even the most challenging steps fun to learn!
