Introduction: Have you ever imagined how it would feel when you enter a salsa dancing spot anywhere in the world and you feel confident about dancing with anyone? I am the founder of a renowned salsa school in Los Angeles (LA Rueda Academy) and I have taught and performed in domestic and international venues and participated in festivals in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, England, Serbia, Croatia, Taiwan, Peru and Mexico. But my biggest reward comes from the transformation of the people who don't believe they have any talent in dancing. Let me show you what's possible. Some of the best social dancers once believed they had two left feet. Just trust the process and you will be dancing before you know it! My primary focus is on social dancing for all ages and getting you to a place where you feel comfortable and confident to dance as soon as possible. I have a systematic approach in teaching. In every session, we will go over previous learnings and add new building blocks. We will not only work on learning new dance moves and patterns, but also will discuss how to navigate the social dancing setting, the psychology of dancing and building confidence. I recently moved to LA and teach in my private space. Each lesson is 75 mins long which gives us enough time to focus properly without rushing. Price is $85 for 1-2 people and $120 for groups up to 10 people. If you are ready to take the first step, let's get you on the dance floor!

Amazing first experience in Salsa dancing! I had a private lesson with instructor because of the schedule conflict for group lesson. The instructor was very professional, explained every steps and moves with beginner’s perspective, which I really appreciated. The instructor knows what student need right away, and kindly review the moves, and break down so that I can learn with more understanding. His class is full five stars for the class quality, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️class time and contents, also ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I am looking forward to the next class. :)

Details: 36-45 • One person (one-on-one with instructor) • Salsa • No experience • Developing a hobby • 60 minutes • As recommended by professional • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Gokhan is an absolutely fantastic salsa instructor! From the very first message I sent, he responded promptly and we got my first lesson scheduled in no time. What truly sets Gokhan apart is his passion and knowledge about the different styles of dance and the cultures they come from. Not only is Gokhan an excellent instructor, but he's also an incredibly friendly and delightful dance partner. I've already taken three lessons with him, and I can't wait to dive into his studio classes. If you're looking for personalized private salsa lessons, I wholeheartedly recommend Gokhan!

I’m very happy that I found Gokhan as my salsa instructor! I been wanting to take one on one classes to be a better dancer! I really like that he can teach LA Salsa and Casino Salsa (Cuban salsa). Learning both styles was something I was looking for and I found it with him and because of that, I gained much more confidence in my dancing. Also, I like his patience going over the steps several times! I would highly recommend him as a salsa instructor!!

When it comes to dancing, I always thought that some people just have it and some don't. And I was certainly in the second category. I've always been self conscious, never felt comfortable moving my body to the music, let alone trying any partner dances. With Gokhan, I felt understood. In time, I built self confidence in a safe space and started gradually venturing out to social dancing. I trained with him for around 5 months before he moved. He puts great effort in planning each class and have a great positive energy. I felt more comfortable bit by bit and today I'm going social dancing 2-3 times a week! I can't believe that I say that my passion is salsa dancing now :)
