I've been teaching ballroom dancing since 2009. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to dance the basics of 3 ballroom/ Latin dances, and as time goes on, you'll be able to add some flair and style in up to 8 different dances, including salsa and other Latin dances. I love working with students ages 9 through adult, and I can't wait to meet you!

Hi, there! My name is Lorenzo and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching various subjects nearly all of my life and have loved helping my students learn. I went to the University of Vermont & West Virginia State University and earned a degree in Communications in 2002. In addition to private lessons, I teach groups of students in schools in special interest areas. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
