Interest in learning salsa? Want to impress your friends? Or, is there a wedding coming up and you want to learn a partner-dancing? Maybe, you just want to improve on any basic skills or techniques?

My name is Andrew and I have been dancing for more than 7 years, starting with bboying in high school and then Latin dancing. I was a Ballroom Director for the student organization on campus during my college study, as well as joined the SJSU Ballroom Dancesport Team. Right now, I am offering private lesson to beginner and beginner-intermediate for salsa.

My lessons are catered in developing basic fundamental techniques and footwork. After the mastery of the basic fundamental technique and footwork, we will then work toward building patterns. My goal is to make sure my students are comfortable and confident enough in dancing to a full 3 mins songs. Throughout the courses, I will also introduce dance theory and music theory. By combining theories with body mechanic, I am striving to inspire my students to fall in loving with dancing, or at least, a better appreciation in the world of dance.

I mainly do home visit because I am not part of any dance studio. Highly recommend me first for availability. The availability may or may not be accurate. It is best to shoot me a message first. Thank you.

About Andrew H.

Andrew Huang has been dancing for more than 7 years. The passion for dancing began in high school where he fell in love with breakdancing and hip hop. Eventually, he branched off toward a different genre of dance. In San Jose State University (SJSU), where he obtained the BFA in Interior Design, he discovered Latin dancing, mainly salsa. And from then on, throughout his academic career, he had joined the SJSU Ballroom Dancesport team, and the SJSU Spartan Mambo. And, in the last two years in SJSU, he became the Ballroom Director for the student organization on campus.


Andrew's lesson is catered to help students to develop rhythm. His style of teaching not only include assisting students to develop mechanical skills, but also to coordinate the steps in according to the music and the beat. To do so, he incorporate drills and exercises in his lessons to build proper muscle memory. The outcome of his lessons allows student to dance confidently on the dance floor at a dance party.

Andrew is available for private lesson. Feel free to shoot him a message, if you want to learn more about his background and availability.

Andrew was a great instructor. He was excellent at communication as far as coordinating and scheduling the lessons. He was flexible and customized his teaching to fit our needs. He made Salsa fun and interesting and was very patient. I highly recommend working with him. It's an awesome experience!

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 breaks down the music and instruments so I better understand how it all comes together! These lessons are worth every penny!

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!

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.
