Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

I am a competitive ballroom pro/am student and I’ve been dancing and competing for years. I had the privilege of studying ballroom dance with Rosaria. She is one of the most talented and beautiful dancers I have ever seen. What makes her an outstanding teacher, however, is her ability to teach. She knows what needs to be done step by step. Whether it’s basic technique, or styling, or even choreography, Rosaria was able to help me improve each time. She works tirelessly at finding different ways to explain the techniques she is teaching. I learned and enjoyed my dancing more with her than with any other ballroom teacher. Ever. Her professionalism, her dedication, and her artistry are one of a kind.

Tom has a way of teaching that is easily understandable and make sense almost right away all the time. And this is awesome because I have no dance experience. He is just an all-around nice guy that is fun and knows what to say so that the lesson clicks for you he knows how to make you get it.

I was fortunate to have a private lesson in Zouk with Tom while he visited the bay area in February. Although there were specific things I wanted to focus on (patterns and head movement), he quickly diagnosed that my basic lateral and frame needed some work. I was bit like- “whaaaa” in disbelief but also know (in theory) that EVERYTHING goes back to BASICS and fundamentals. He taught me that I can't keep my Bachata frame, and how the frame is different in Zouk. He also diagnosed what I was doing in my basic step that causes lower back pain every time I social danced - and implementing this automatically felt so much better! Now, I have to un-do all my muscle memory and actively try to practice doing it correctly! That’s is the most difficult part- but with practice it will soon become my new muscle memory!

Tom is a wonderful instructor, dancer, and DJ. What I love the most about his dances, is that he is completely present, committed to the dance, and you can feel his energy. He is exactly the same way while DJ-ing. He’s creative and passionate and is the epitome of ZoukLove. Thank you Tom- you are awesome and amazing as always. <3 <3 <3

Love,
Yurika

I had a zouk lesson at my home by Tom. He was quick to point out the fundamental stuff that would make the biggest shift to my entire dance. Also, whenever he said "you're doing THIS" he was really great at imitating my mistakes! I have a long way to go, and in that sense it was challenging and discouraging to face that, but he gave me encouragements and clear instructions on what I could practice to get there.
I would take his lesson again!

This is the perfect opportunity to get in the swing of things. For an aspiring dancer private lessons are the fastest route for improvement, because all the attention is on you. In the lesson you will work with the instructor on the styles of dance that interest you the most. Learn the beautiful art of connecting with yourself and others through dance. You will develop the confidence and skills to dance in social settings from clubs to weddings.

About Yani

From there she went on to train in different styles that vary from technical dances such as Ballet and Modern Dance to cultural dances such as Flamenco and Salsa. At the age of 18 she was introduced to Salsa and other forms of partner dance, and she developed a passion for the connection created with others through those dances. Since then she has intensively trained in Salsa, Bachata, Brazilian Zouk, and Ballroom. She has been teaching since 2013 locally and internationally (USA, Germany, Hungary, Brazil, Mexico, etc.) at different dance festivals. Her mission is to help people connect with themselves and others through movement. Help them gain self confidenc

My name is Alfredo Delgado. I'm 35 years old. I was a Correctional Officer recently. I am a proud father and a great friend. I have had several jobs in the past, the one I was most passionate about was teaching dance. I taught for Fred Astaire, Arthur Murray, and a few independent studios over the course of about 14 years. I started early in High School. My picture shows Karina and I at the prom for senior year. I was a T.A. for special needs children and she needed a date for prom, I gladly volunteered. I bit off more than I could chew though so I started taking lessons at Fred Astaire. I would go to High School during the day and then hop a bus and study at the dance school at night. After months of training and watching videos of heartfelt stories involving dance I was inspired and haven't looked back.
