Keomi is amazing. She is an excellent teacher: She can adapt to even the most beginner of students, gives great instructions/cues and is bright, fun, and positive all while remaining grounded with an eye for detail.

Keomi has a lot of positive energy and is sensitive to the the skill levels of her students so she tailors her classes to give just enough challenge while building on students’ strengths and experiences.
Keomi gives a great cardio workout where you really sweat yet the class is so fun that you don’t notice how hard you are working!
You WILL learn many classic hip hop moves which Keo strings together to make a sexy/cool but accessible choreography. You come out of class feeling blissed - both for the vigorous workout and for accomplishing the dance moves! This is a great class for all levels.

Hola!

If you are looking to learn Salsa, Merengue, or Bachata--You have come to the right place!

As you work with me you will become more and more comfortable dancing so that you are ready for the fiesta!

I began my dance studies in Puerto Rico with traditional Bomba Y Plena. Currently, I teach latin dance with several NYC based companies.

About Ra

I elected to choose an online Spanish teacher for my daughter Arianna who is nine years old - after unsuccessful locating a local Spanish speaking class/teacher. Haven't had any experience with online teachers, I asked Take Lessons to recommend a Spanish native speaker from Puerto Rico. I needed to find someone who understands and is very familiar with the pronunciation of the Latin dialect. Ra's focus is conversational language; however, she was more than willing to take on the challenge of starting from the beginning with the basics, such as the alphabet, number, months, etc. and building into conversational sentences with Arianna. She is extremely easy to interact with, soft-spoken, and processes a genuine love of teaching. My daughter looks forward to their weekly meetings while embracing her Latin roots. We are immensely pleased with Ra. We would highly recommend her without reservation. Sincerely, The Lopez Family

I have been teaching hip hop classes for over 10 years. In my class you will learn the foundations of dance and how to understand musicality in order to translate it into movement. My main objective is to have a fun time with you while we work on your dance moves and your confidence. The class can be customized depending on your goal: learning routines, fitness or dancing in heels. All levels and ages are welcome!

My name is Deja!

Do you want to build your confidence? Command the attention on any dance floor? Prepare for an audition? Or simply brush up on some dance moves? I am the girl for you.

I have over 10 years of dancing under my belt, six of those years I've spent being a professional dancer. You may see me in: Apple's iPad 2 Commercial, So You Think You Can Dance Season 14, ShowTime at The Apollo, Volkswagen Car Show, America's Got Talent, Chris Brown Brown's "Party Video", etc.

I previously taught a class every Friday at City Dance in San Francisco. There is nothing more rewarding than witnessing a student thrive & knowing that I contributed to their growth in skill, confidence & overall presence when you walk into a room brings me so much joy & I can't wait to work with you!

Deja had her first lesson with my daughter today. Deja was great. Right on time; worked with my daughter literally through the last minute of her lesson. I could hear Deja giving direction and instruction, and she was very encouraging and supportive. My daughter really liked her, and is excited about the process. (whew!). Great job!

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!

Dance Therapy - Social Dancing - Ballroom

Couples: Ultimately, my heart is in teaching couples to reconnect. I use dancing together to instill respect, value, graciousness and even intimacy. It will strengthen and deepen one's relationship and understanding of one another.

Singles: I also specialize helping others learn the confidence, beauty and exhilaration that so many yearn to feel on the dance floor. Whether you're looking to lose some weight, be a more assertive person, or express yourself..; dance is the perfect tool.

About Mercy

Hello! I've been teaching Ballroom and social dancing for the last 5 years - all ages, couples/singles, etc. I can teach you basics or improve what you already know and take you further in just a lesson or two. I really love to teach and find so much fulfillment in helping others find the joy

"Ra was very professional, welcoming and well knowledgeable to say the least. For a beginner such as myself with no prior experience, not once did I feel left out or that I couldn't catch up to her and it was all due to Ra being willing to not only revisit the steps but to do it all over again if necessary. Ra does not only engage and interacts with you very well, but she makes certain that you are also having fun all while learning. In conclusion, I highly recommend Ra if you are looking to get your Latin groove on!"

"I took a Brazilian Zouk private lesson with Tom. He is observant and will work on subtle, but important, details with you to help you improve your dance movements, which is exactly what I need and am looking for in a teacher. He is professional and friendly — he teaches with a combination of breaking down technical details, humor, and metaphors to help you fully understand the concepts.
Besides that, the location is great -- plenty of space for a private lesson, natural light, and mirrors. Free street parking nearby. I highly recommend taking a lesson from Tom."

"I took dance lessons from Gigi with a focus on self expression and working through issues that I was holding onto on any particular day. I am 60+ years old and never danced before. Where my typical perspective of myself standing in front of a mirror is not positive, I somehow was transformed into seeing beauty. Gigi is a beautiful person, very patient , non judging. Her goal was for me to meet my goal, even when it changed from week to week. Sometimes we worked on dance technique, other times using movement to work through feelings. I loved it."
