Salsa by Nature was great. Both Jesse and Bianca were true professionals, and Bianca looked absolutely stunning. They successfully taught a mix of beginning and intermediate students how to dance at San Bernardino Valley College. During the lesson and dance demo, they kept everyone's attention with their moves and their wide selection of music from traditional to hip hop. The participants left satisfied that day and clapped at the end of every demo.

I meet Arden at one of his salsa classes. He is vibrant, charismatic and a sensational performer, all of which carries on to his DJ service. He is in tune with what keeps a party upbeat, playing music enjoyed by different generations. He motivates the crowd and there's never a dull moment!

I was never a partner dancer. Having been a ballerina who trained as a soloist, being lead was never really an option. Fast forward to trying to learn how to dance with a partner? Jared and his inexhaustible patience got me to let go of control. Yay him!! Seriously - if you know me, you'd get up and applaud. I loved working with Jared. Not only did he help me overcome my issues, he took into account the fact that I have a bad back and knees and made learning to dance fun. I've got a bad back and horrible knees, and yet, with him, I could dance! SO. MUCH. FUN!!

Bryan is passionate and incredibly knowledgable, not only just in actual dancing, but the entire dance, hip hop, and music culture as well. Always energized and enthusiastic, he is excellent at communicating his teachings in a kind, fun manner. Ultimately, I feel as though Bryan always tries his best to make the most of his students' potential, as well as educating them on the unifying culture of dance.

For my first salsa and latin-dance classes I went to weekly classes in a studio in Hollywood. I felt like I didn't get enough attention from the teachers because there were over 15 students in the class. I decided to try private classes so I registered on Thumbtack because a friend recommended it to me for private classes. I got a quote from Tibor and I gave it a try. I was surprised how much I got better in a short amount of time just due the fact of taking private classes. Tibor gave me his undivided attention and taught me the right technique and he helped me to help myself. I learned how to get the right mindset. His professionalism speaks for himself. The only problem was that it was kind of far away from where I live and I wanted to learn Cuban salsa and not L.A. Salsa, which he was not able to teach me since he's a professional L.A. Style Salsa Dancer. All in all I'm really happy and satisfied with his passionate art of teaching. I really felt his love for dance in every lesson.

I have done a lot of dance classes, and private lessons. Ballet, Modern, Jazz and a little break dancing. I wanted to do Hip-Hop. I was matched up with Yolanda. I couldn't not have found a better teacher. She is energetic, enthusiastic, encouraging ( sorry for the alliteration ) and knowledgeable. I may have done other dance work, but I had to rethink, find new ways of moving that were unfamiliar. In a very short time, after some hilarious struggles. I'm getting it. I wouldn't audition for SYTYCD, but I think now I can lay down some moves in a club. More to come for me, sticking with my girl, Yolanda!

Working With Sam Allen was the most amazing experience. Sam gave me private Hip Hop dance lessons and was phenomenal. He was encouraging, patient, and pushed me to my highest potential. Sam was accommodating, professional, and made me feel like a super star. He teaches at your pace and to your ability. I learned so much and had so much fun at the same time. I highly recommend Sam to anyone of all ages and levels of experience. There is no better teacher out there.

I have had the pleasure of working with this girl while she was choreographing at Rutgers University. She is extremely friendly and encouraging during rehearsals. I have witnessed her working with both advanced and beginner dancers; she is amazing with both. Her choreography was always a crowd-pleaser and got Rutgers Performing Dance Company a first overall and highest scoring number win in their first ever intercollegiate dance competition last year! Danielle is a brilliant dancer and choreographer whom I feel so lucky to have worked with!

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!

I have know Alan Cheng for a long time and have gotten more than my fair share of dance lessons from him. He has taught me many amazing moves such as the Sideway's Glide, Cat-Daddy, and Milk The Cow. I am not normally one to post a review or brag, but I will say when I used these moves in the club, they attract ladies like no other. (Not that I need that however, I do fine with the ladies on my own.). But with the added edge from Alan Cheng's dance moves, getting into dance offs in the club sure is a good time.

Sixteen years ago, moving to Los Angeles from Europe—where people can still walk from place to place and don’t necessarily need to work out to keep in shape—I had to find a way to compensate my sudden and unexpectedly significant lack of physical activity. Jogging? No, thanks! Tread mill? Please! Steps, bikes, machines? Not for me. It had to be fun, challenging and, more importantly, creative. I first joined Delane Vaughn’s hip-hop class and then his jazz class as well. At first I was lost and had no idea what I was doing or supposed to do. Yet, I decided to stick with it because I feared even more the boredom of typical gym activities—or classes for that matter. I am now addicted to my dance work out with Delane, which keeps me physically healthy and mentally refreshed. When Delane arrives, I am never sure what he is going to come up with, but that only makes my experience constant and intriguing work in progress. I know for sure that I could never remain committed to any conventional work out or repetitive routine, as the brain needs as much nourishment and experiment as the body does in order to remain flexible and responsive. Delane has a very eclectic talent and can adjust his creativity to any music. I often showed up to our sessions with Arabic or Hebrew songs, flamenco or tango, African and Polynesian percussions, Australian rhythms, and he made me dance on all of them, naturally. Delane just listens to whatever you may suggest, and translates it into movement that works for your body.

I went to Caitlin's dance class and learn some nice basic exercises and did some hip hop choreography. It was a great experience as Caitlin is an extraordinary dancer and teacher. She made the learning experience exciting and enjoyable, I will definitely be going back!

The job was to make people feel comfortable taking a dance class (in this case hip hop) and learn how to overcome your fears or just learn begin learning the basics. Everything went perfect! The environment was a good one and the pace catered to everyone needs! Definitely recommend him as a teacher!

Aaron's classes are fun, and very welcoming for all levels! He is completely disarming and mixes things up with lively tunes. Plus, he is an incredible dancer with a lovely personality! Getting in shape with Aaron means pure JOY! You will learn fun and sexy moves, and inevitably have a smile on your face. His classes move at an ideal pace, and he has an awesome way of getting everyone out of their head and into their bodies through positive movement. He keeps the steps achievable, but not at all boring. What I mean is you won't feel like you have two left feet if you take his classes. This is not a class where you quit because you are frustrated and falling behind. Aaron doesn't allow that! He would rather keep the movement fun, sexy and flowing in a way that everyone can follow, than try to intimidate and scare any dancer away. At any age, If you get a chance to take Aaron's classes, you will be happy you did. I completely look forward to my dance classes with Aaron. The fantastic workout is an added bonus.

After teaching for 10 years, I understand that each student had a different psychological profile and mode of learning. And I teach my classes to meet all those students needs.
