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!

Hello! Let me start off by mentioning how much fun salsa dancing can be and the good feels it brings to your life. I've been dancing for fun for the past 12 years and just recently this year I performed at the Chicago Salsa Congress. I started teaching Basic salsa on 1 for a year or two now. I also have a yoga certification which has helped me in teaching balance and incorporating strong posture into the dance depending on what your needs are. Whether it's for fun, for something new to try or fitness, it can be learned. The best way to get started or comfortable with the dance is by just doing it. Please feel free to contact me or connect with me if interested in giving salsa dance a try.

About Susie
I first started doing yoga 8 years ago when I realized how much my anxiety and lack of concentration was beginning to disrupt areas of my life. After noticing the subtle changes in my mood, level of awareness and connection with my body as well as with something beyond me, I had discovered the true healing power of physical discipline. This led me to deepen my practice and travel to Bali, Indonesia for my 200 hour vinyasa flow teacher training intensive through Frog Lotus Yoga (Yoga Alliance Qualified). An inner truth I knew deep inside had reawakened during my experience in Asia and all I knew was that I had to share it. In our society we are trained to be constantly busy, productive and following the motions of a fast pace life. We forget we have the option of slowing down; however, we are so conditioned we forget to make it a priorit
y. What if we could train the mind to ease off the stress and ask our body to follow the same plan? How liberating would that be? Well, we can but it involves practice, love, and much patience. In my style of teaching private yoga, I like to create a practice that encourages students to work with their strengths along with a balance of challenging postures and allowing the flow of growth develop from there.

Have fun while learning something new, or improving on a skill you've been working on! I have never met a person that was unteachable. I specialize in Ballroom and Latin Style dancing and love to bring passion and fun to every lesson.

I grew up dancing Ballet, Jazz, Tap, and Baton, and later added Hip Hop, Modern, and Ballroom to my repertoire. I spent four years as an instructor and manager at Arthur Murray and really fell in love with teaching. I miss being at the studio on a daily basis and am hoping to bring dance and joy to more people via takelessons.com.

I also specialize in wedding dance instruction - whether you are looking for a choreographed first dance or just to feel comfortable moving together on your big day. I am your girl!

About Melissa
I've always loved to dance. I took every lesson available as a kid, choreographed dances in the back of my first job during downtime (Subway Sandwiches in Leola!), studied Theatre, Film, and Dance in College, and quickly moved through the ranks at Arthur Murray Dance Studios as a Silver Certified Instructor and Manager.

Not only do I have a passion for dance, but I also have a passion for people. I loved teaching at Arthur Murray and watching how dance positively impacted both my students and myself. I was also named Top Instructor and Top Executive during the 2015 Arthur Murray International Dance Festival.

5 Stars is the highest ranking and is not easily obtained. I have know Mellissa for over 5 years relative to dance. She was my 3rd dance instructor but my best, extremely knowledgeable, professional and patient. There is not an aspect of dance that she is not familiar with. She can Move you past and beyond your trouble spots and onto the next level. You cannot find a better instructor! I actually think it is her calling!

Started taking Salsa lessons with Tibor for a couple months now, just have to say he is so pleasant to work with, very patient, kind and knowledgeable with what he does. He truly cares about his clients and take the time to explain to get to the next level. He gave me that boost of confidence that I need to go out in the the social dance scene. Don’t look elsewhere, if you are in need of dance classes! Did I mention he’s a versatile dancer?! Very talented he is! Will start my first bachata lesson this week! :D

My dance classes, whether taken in groups or privately, are safe environments to grow and learn from. With over 15 years experience as a dance instructor in Southern California and Europe (I taught dance in Italy and Austria), I make sure my students reach their highest potential whether pursuing a career in dance or pursuing a desire to incorporate movement into their lives.

About Bryan
My name is Bryan and I’m a dance teacher and choreographer in L.A. I teach from beginners to semi-pro dancers in schools and studios in the area and usually work out of dance studios in North Hollywood where I reside. I can also travel to you.

I can teach you the basics of hip-hop dance, jazz dance as well as some basic grooves you can take anywhere to practice before advancing into choreography. Over the course of weeks, I can make you more comfortable into different styles of dance and progress into more challenging forms of choreography.

As a teacher, I've taught all age groups and levels all over Europe as well locally here back home in Southern California. As a professional, I’ve choreographed and danced for Adam Lambert, Ricky Martin, Nike, Mercedes Benz, Ludacris and Bobby Valentino. My training and education comes from UCLA, the
London School of Contemporary Dance, and Millennium Dance Complex.

There are many samples of my work as well as on my website.

I have many references too from private students in LA as well as studio owners and schools.

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 Ryhtms).
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!
