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!

I took a lesson with Tom. I really wanted to try him out because of all the great reviews he has, it definitely didn't fall short of my expectations. He was attentive, friendly, not judgelmental and a master of his craft. Thank you for all your tips.

It came to me again - that feeling that I could do anything. I know that's an exaggeration, but feelings of personal accomplishment lend a lot to taking future risks. Our dance team was under Tom's tutelage for four hours broken into two sessions and I was changed. He had persistence yet patience. He somehow gave everything enough attention, but kept us moving forward to use our time together the most wisely. He adapted to our unique and unusual dynamic and group personality, adopting our language while he taught us his.

My private lesson with him was special too. I remember feeling a bit vulnerable and self conscious in the first few minutes, wondering how we would connect on how to help me. I was put at ease as he listened to my thoughts, partnered with me in a quick exploratory dance, took the reins, and led me through an educational sixty minutes. I liked the way he made the specifics he was conveying accessible through brief relatable personal examples. I've had many people speak to me about frame, but the way he approached it and me was the way that has me doing better (I think!) I found Tom to be incredibly professional, personable, respectful and helpful.
I would certainly benefit from more time in his care.

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.

Jacy
"She's very nice, friendly and definitely know how to dance salsa. I like Elena, I feel like we are friends because she's a very warm hearted person, I'm
like that as well."
...
Diego
"My experiences with Nadia have been fantastic. She’s a very skilled teacher that’s able to work very well with beginners like myself and more experienced
dancers like my partner. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in wanting to learn (or improve) salsa dancing!"
...
John
"I knew a few basics from the group classes but I struggled with the lead. Nadia was very patient with me and helped me to understand how the lead works. I
'm looking forward to continuing learning with her"
...
Ryan
"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 go
t 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!"
...
Adi
"Andrew was patient and is a talented teacher. Highly recommended!!"
Verena
"Such fun! This was my fifth lesson with Andrew. I have learned soooo much. I appreciate how he not only breaks down the physical movements but also bre
aks down the music and instruments so I better understand how it all comes together! These lessons are worth every penny!"
...
Mari
"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."

Gareth Paterson
"First lesson was awesome. Looking forwards to the rest."
Amanda
"I had a great first lesson with Andrew. He's an excelent teacher and I look forward to our upcoming classes!"
