Jesse and Bianca are amazing! Personable, professional, talented and fun. We began taking classes from Jesse and Bianca with absolutely no history in Latin dancing. In 5 sessions we were dancing merengue and cumbia (to the amazement of our friends). We have enjoyed the experience so much that now we are taking salsa lessons as well.
I've had a number of ballet instructors over the years and I can say with confidence that Mindy is a truly gifted teacher. She's totally devoted to sharing her vast knowledge about ballet and the human body. At the same time, she's meticulous, challenging, kind, and encouraging, a rare and invaluable combination in a ballet instructor. Her adult beginner ballet class has something substantial to offer to dancers at all levels.
We started working with Debra about 4 months before our wedding. We wanted to have a "Show-stopping" first dance but both of us had two left feet!! Debra choreographed a Rumba for us that ended up getting us cheers and a standing ovation at our reception!!!! She taught us all the basics from scratch and literally we felt like Ginger Rodgers and Fred Astaire on our wedding day. The routine Debra choreographed was like something from a movie- amazing how she puts it all together. Now that we're married some of our date nights have become nights out dancing- again with steps we are learning in private lessons and group classes. We've learned Salsa and Swing and can't wait for more. DEBRA IS AMAZING- LOOK NO FURTHER- We highly recommend her as a fantastic teacher, motivator, and now a great Friend! 5 Stars. Angie and Mark
Made me comfortable. She was patient. Professional. She knows here salsa..2nd lesson n going back..
With an upcoming wedding I wanted to learn to dance with my husband. We were beginners but with Nadiiya's excellent teaching we can now dance cha cha , swing and foxtrot. Nadiya's lessons are always fun and she takes time to explain the steps, the technical aspects , answers questions and demonstrates. Nadiya is a professional dancer and extremely talented. I highly recommend Nadiya as a dance teacher - she has made two non dancers love dancing!
Shyrelle has been working with my daughter for about a month now. My daughter needed hip hop & jazz lessons so that she could perform in her talent show at summer camp as well as try out for the dance team next year. I've seen her vastly improve in such a short time. Shyrelle implements discipline & fun & is so great with teens. Highly recommended!
Katie and Shawn are the best teachers I have ever had, in any subject. I attended California Institute of the Arts and had some awesome teachers. Still, they are the best. It's the way they handle the fundamentals that set them apart. Think Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid, only for dance. I'm a beginner. I was not in the Cal Arts dance school. They instinctively can find your strong and weak points. Instinct, experience, enthusiasm, and hard work, I surmise. Anyway they made it doable for me. I appreciate it. A lifetime of dance for a small fee. We'll worth it.
My husband and I have only had one intro dance lesson with Michael, but he is outstanding... and patient, and explains things well for us beginners!.. He has an awesome studio at his home. Can't wait to learn more with him!
Kendra is an amazing instructor. She is very patient and friendly when it comes to beginners.
Rebecca Halls was my yoga teacher regularly for 2 years from 2012-2014. I found her early in my yoga practice, and I attribute all of my progress to her guidance and teaching. She has every quality of a superlative yoga teacher. Rebecca is above all a supportive and inspirational mentor. She radiates positivity and encouragement, while at the same time provides clear and precise instruction. Even in a class setting, she engages with students on a one-to-one level. I appreciated her emphasis on the subtleties of each posture. I felt it was through these details I could really improve my practice. Having had many other wonderful teachers since Rebecca, I can say that she ranks right up there at the top. Her passion for what she does is infectious and I felt lucky to be her student. I think anyone else, beginner or advanced student, would feel the same.
Had a blast learning how to salsa with Jenn. She explained the steps thoroughly, she had a great personality and made our dinner party that much more fun!
My fiancee and I were looking for a teacher to teach us to dance for our first dance at our wedding. My beloved had NEVER been a dancer and was also reluctant to dance in front of others. We were very lucky to find Sarah. From our very first lesson, it was clear that she is abundantly gifted, easy to work with and perfectly charming. Each lesson with her was a highlight of our week; she taught us very quickly and effectively, kept our lessons fun and light, and gave us exactly what was within our skill set and comfort level. Sarah has a lovely manner and having seen her with students before and after our lesson time; we observed that Sarah is able to tailor EACH lesson to each student. Every dance looked different and simply perfect for the particular student/couple. Our wedding just passed and our friends were impressed, entertained and delighted with our 'performance' and we look forward to continuing our lessons with Sarah now that my beloved and I have the dancing 'bug'! I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about Sarah and he teaching style; she has quite a lot of satisfied students and it is easy to see why that's the case.
I have been taking Argentine Tango lessons from Avi for four months. He is a very good instructor. He shares his knowledge and passion for the dance with the students. The group classes begin with the basics and move into learning many of the steps. It's fun and great exercise for the body and mind!
Amalia takes the time to go through the steps of salsa, so you can go at your own pace and be sure you learn correctly. Very sweet woman and great teacher!
