Teresa was awesome! She worked with me and my limited flexibility and really set me up for success with exercises to integrate into my routine. She was also very cognizant of a prior injury and presented long term alternate solutions to tissue regrowth. I really look forward to working with her again!

She was really great, we have only had one lesson so far but she made me feel very comfortable and I feel like she will be perfect for me helping me get over my stage fright. She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me. I am looking forward to working with her.

About Mariah
Hello! My name is Mariah and I am a passionate artist thriving to share love and light through the arts! I have worked as a professional dancer for ten years and have over fifteenth years of diverse training. In my early years, I received my training from the Debbie Allen Dance Academy where I was molded by the best educators possible to acquire outstanding skills. Learning ballet, jazz, tap, dunham, flamingo, hip hop, salsa, African, point, modern, character, musical theater, and Latin fusion. After high school I attended Columbia College Chicago where I earned my Bachelors of Arts in Theater. During my years at Columbia I combined my passion for dance and interest in acting by diving into as much extracurricular as possible! I was one of the first student co-choreographers to choreograph a main stage musical at Columbia. I was very prou
d to co-choreograph Once On This Island while still working towards my degree! I have a very diverse background and it now reflects in my professional life. Currently, I spend my time taking care of animals, hiking, going to the beach, teaching dance/theater, taking dance class, and keeping up with my younger siblings.

I have judged for Star Bound Dance Competitions, taught lecture demonstrations at various k-12 schools around LA, performed for the Special Olympics, LA Lakers Half Time Show, Spaceship Launch Performance, Playboy Jazz Festival, Wallis Annenberg Center of Performing Arts, and Broadway Cares, worked with networks like FOX and BET, and have danced with various celebrities like Demi Lavato, Chris Brown, and Becky G.

My strive for positivity will help push you to your goals! I am very open and always wanting to learn so I will bring new things to the table constantly. Though, I am a firm believer in repetition and detailed practice. I have been highly disciplined throughout my years in the dance industry, and now combine my skills to create a diverse learning environment.

I can't stress enough how passionate I am about helping people! I plan to conduct a personal lesson that is designed for you. Working together we will create a plan that will exceed your expectations. We will create a comfortable, safe, creative, and diligent environment that is best for you! Small group classes are available as well!

Dance lessons with me are solely based on your pace. The students make the class, dance is nothing without having someone to share the experience with.

About Sarah

The team performed hip-hop at a Sharp competition and won 1st place in their category along with 1st overall in the hip-hop division. Dance is a form of expression and I love teaching others to express themselves through it.

I learned from Deja! 10 out of 10! She helped me become sharp in some movements and more feminine in others, the perfect blend! I witnessed her work with children too, she is great with people of all ages! Even when she couldn't do them all, she still helped me learn how to land my tricks! I love her! Thank you Deja!

Why did I choose to be a dance teacher?
Simple: Have you ever seen a person who is sad while dancing? ... Me neither!
DANCING MAKES PEOPLE HAPPY!
I enjoy dancing, but what I really enjoy doing most in my life is teaching!
I have 16 years of experience specializing in salsa and Latin rhythms.
Something I have learned over the years is that a good dance instructor is one who can understand the learning and emotional processes of each student and adapt effectively and quickly, since the way of learning of each student is unique and special depending on the background of experience they have.
That's why I like the one-to-one approach where I can adapt in each lesson to the unique needs of my apprentice and take him as a mentor to really enjoy the process without being competing or comparing with anyone but yourself.
If you are looking for an online course with proper structure and progression, with real menthoring and an easy to remember sistem that you can apply right away in the dance

About Lucho
I am a teacher and a professional salsa dancer with 15 years experience background. I was born in Argentina, so I know the Latin culture from the inside, not only because of my roots, but also because I have dedicated a great part of my life traveling to countries like Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Cuba and Puerto Rico (I love to travel as you can see ) getting to know very thoroughly the culture of Latin dance and its unique and charming grace.

I am a graduate of Escuela Superior de Danzas Soria Arch with honors as a teacher of traditional Afro-Antillean dances (Latin Rhythms). With regard to the artistic, I have extensive experience giving shows in scenarios of all kinds. Private parties, salsa congresses, music videos, concerts, mass events, movies, TV shows, advertisements, etc. I'm not currently giving shows but helping others t
o do it, and mainly to those who want to navigate the exciting world of improvised dance (social dance).

I am passionate about teaching dance lessons to people of all ages and levels. I have taught hundreds of satisfied customers from different parts of the world. When it comes to beginners, I like to take them step by step at their own pace, with easy-to-understand explanations and methods that help to remember, in order to make the learning process enjoyable and be able to apply early on the dance floor all the learned material. The goal is to fall in love with dancing!

When it comes to students who have previous experience (intermediate and advanced), my mission is to become a guide and mentor for them. Since in these stages is where they need a push to get out of the level where they are stuck and do not know why, or maybe they get to the point where they can learn all the material from their teachers but fail to improve their own style.

No matter what level you are in, if you are my student, it represents for me a unique and different challenge that leads me to commit myself until you reach your goals. Most of the classes I teach are online, but if you live near my area, I can visit you personally at home for a private session with great pleasure. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a great salsa dancer!

I believe that dance is about a feeling. A feeling of flying, being free, and expressing yourself. I focus on technique and training your mentality to make you believe that you are a great dancer, and lead you to feel the benefits of being one. The many students I have worked with can agree that my classroom is encouraging, fun, empowering, and educational. Watching you soar is most fulfilling to me!

About Kory
Hello! Do you love to dance? Does dancing scare you? Do you wish you could feel better about your dancing? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I am the teacher for you. I love to connect with students through dance, to teach them how to better express themselves, and to reach for their goals. I use dance as a tool to help you become a better person. I am also armed with years of training at the most prestigious programs (American Ballet Theatre, Tisch School of the Arts, etc.) so I can help you improve your technique as well. When I dance, I feel like I'm flying, and I want to help you feel this too. Let's soar together!

Experienced salsa dancer for 8 years. I started in 2011 in one of my high school Spanish classes. I competed in my first high school salsa class competition, and that propelled me to continue pursuing in this field. I have been learning to lead in Latin dancing as well, so I can teach both. It turned into a passion for life, and now I am focusing on learning to instruct others. I will be focusing on basics, social dancing etiquette, and dancing for health.

About Emmy
I am an avid salsa dancer, singer, and guitarist. I am currently completing my Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Health and Business. I currently work full time as a Vitamins & Body Care Manager at Mother's Market and Kitchen

Salsa dancing students can expect to learn the basics, exercise, and improve from week to week. Every student has a way of expressing themselves, and my goal is to get them to learn the foundations while finding their footing in Latin Dancing; I am a new instructor, so I am looking to teach the basics and fundamentals of Salsa Dancing.

My background in Salsa dancing started in high school in 2011. I quickly picked up the dance as I competed in my first competition my first year learning. After that I've spent 8 years social dancing, and learning to lead on my own. I've taken beginners thro
ugh advanced courses at multiple dance clubs such as Steven's Steak House in Commerce, PCH club in Long Beach, All Atomic Ballroom locations, etc.

Aside from salsa, I've also spent a large portion of my life in music. I've done background singing at a church in LA, and I spent 6 years in the San Francisco Girls Chorus. I'm also a self taught guitarist. So, if you'd like to learn basic music theory, and guitar I can offer those services as well.
