Learn to dance with Ferlyn

My History of Salsa Dance:
I have been teaching ballroom for over 12 years. I have experience in varied street and self-taught techniques in Waltz (Traditional & Viennese), Tango (American & Argentine), Cha Cha, Foxtrot, and Latin Ballroom (Salsa, Rumba, Samba, Bachata), just to name a few. My training is mostly through self-taught methods and passed down generational methods taught through mentors and cultural organizations. A few video credits can be looked at on my profile!

My Teaching Method:
I assess each students' levels, knowledge and styles of learning, determine the best learning paths to incorporate into the lesson and bring a "natural movement" approach of training and education.

With my method, this is to provide a collaborative & supportive environment as well as actively develop a person's life, culture and well-being. I strive to take a step further and deeper within the mind of the person who is learning dance and find one's ...

About Ferlyn

My Teaching Philosophy: "Everyone is capable of dancing, playing an instrument, and understanding music & art performance; it is the desire, drive, determination, dedication and discipline instilled within a person and the guidance of my company's methodology that will bring these abilities to lig

Ferlyn has excellent skills in teaching dance. My daughter has improved her dance techniques in 3 classes. We highly recommend her to everyone that needs dance instructor.
Dominique N.
Given all of the positive reviews, I am refraining from giving Ferlyn only one star. I am sure she is relatively competent as a teacher. The unfortunate aspect for which she is receiving such a poor review is a significant lack of professionalism.
I arranged piano lessons with Ferlyn for my mother.
Her first lesson (for which I was present) was fine.
I then found out that at their second lesson, Ferlyn showed up very sick. This was quite concerning, especially given my mother’s age. Ferlyn definitely should have canceled that second lesson and not showed up so sick.
Then, only two hours (!) before my mother’s scheduled third lesson, I receive a text message from Ferlyn stating the following:
“Hi Dominique, wanted to let you and your mom that piano lessons will be cancelled today because it is my Birthday! I will see her next week. :)”
This was incredible. This was a cancellation only two hours prior, not due to some emergency or even due to her illness which should have caused a cancelation the week before! This was because it was her birthday. Something that would have been understandable, were she to have let us know well in advance. I am sure she knew in advance when her birthday is.
This does not reflect on TakeLessons, as I have had great experiences with other teachers.
But this degree of inconsiderateness, first with regard to the illness and then with regard to the manner of cancellation, is appalling.

Meets you at your dance level and you move forward from there. Excellent attitude and knowledgeable instructor. Professional and thorough.

Private Salsa Dancing Teacher

My name is Steve and I have been dancing/teaching different styles of dance for 7 years now. I specialize in teaching beginners and I enjoy watching my students progress quickly and meet their goals. If you have always wanted to learn a specific type of dance but never knew where to start then I think my services would be a perfect fit for you.

I can teach East Coast Swing, Foxtrot, Waltz, Cha-Cha, Rumba, Tango, and Salsa. I also teach Wedding Dances if you are looking to look sharp on your special day!! Group classes and country line dances are available if you are looking to entertain party guests or host a reoccurring social event.

My services are available in all of San Diego County at any location you can provide. Most of my lessons take place at the student's residence but I am flexible as long as the student provides the alternate location. See prices below and I look forward to introducing dance into your life.

About Steven

My personality matches my teaching style which is laid back. I believe that everyone who wants to dance should have a chance to. I think that some beginner teachers focus too much on the technique and forget to make lessons fun and exciting. My biggest skill is helping beginners gain confidence so

Online Salsa Dancing Teacher

Learn to dance for your wedding, or just for fun! I teach several styles of Latin and Ballroom dance.
My lessons focus on connecting with your partner and being in tune with his or her movements. A proper connection makes it easy to quickly learn new steps, and to move together as naturally as possible.

For online/video lessons: Connection is a tricky thing to teach online. To learn to lead or follow well, it's important to have tactile feedback in order to feel the relationship between your movement and the results from your partner, and vice versa.

However, with attention to, body mechanics and a focus on alignment and movement technique, online lessons can be a good place to start. Especially if the thought of group classes is intimidating for you, starting with online lessons can help you learn some basics at your own pace (or even help sort out your feet!) before jumping into a group lesson. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me!

"Andrew is truly a professional!
My husband and I are both novice dancers and Andrew has made each lesson fun yet very informative. He is very easy to work with, has lots of patience and has a firm understanding of all types of dance that he teaches. I never thought my husband or I would be able to dance and use real dance moves but with Andrews help we are learning a lot and having a blast doing it. We are learning specific moves and techniques all thanks to our great instructor. I would recommend Andrew in a heartbeat."

"I highly recommend Tibor. He is an excellent dance instructor and unbelievably talented. Not everybody has the patience and skill set to teach, but Tibor is extremely good at this. I always leave my dance lessons feeling like I have accomplished something. Tibor makes learning dance fun and he listens carefully to my wants and needs. Tibor is very good at articulating and demonstrating each step and he knows how to slow down or advance me faster depending on how quickly I am getting it. Tibor has great energy and is very respectful and professional. He makes me feel comfortable and gives me encouragement that really builds my confidence on the dance floor. I really can’t say enough about how wonderful Tibor is as a genuine and authentic person and a dance instructor. I feel lucky to be working with him."

"I have already taken a lot of dance classes including Salsa, but only attending irregular group classes it was hard to retain the basics and my dancing got a little sloppy. Andrew got me up to date with basic fundamentals, all through this online course. I didn't have a lot of faith in the online format at first, but Andrew quickly gave me confidence he could teach me. He carefully observed each of my movements and was patient in helping me improve little by little. My girlfriend (who has a lot of salsa background and was embarrassed to dance with me prior to my classes with Andrew) noticed a huge improvement after I took just a few classes from Andrew. Thanks so much!"
