Dan has been my coach since beginning of this year. He is very friendly, knowledgeable, straight forward, and passionate about dance. Since then, I competed a few times and placed really well in Silver Internaltional Ballroom Dancing. He is probably one of the most hardworking and organized coaches I've met. I really appreciate that he focuses on solid foundation than just jumping levels and do fancy routines that I'm not ready for. He is really good at pointing out what I need to work on in a clear and concise way. Some of the teachers are great dancers, but not great teachers. Clear communication and instruction are super super important. If you want to take one with Dan, I promise your money is well worth it!
Erin was wonderful to work with! Super responsive and professional. The crowd loved her! Not only were she and her dance partner wonderful dancers, but they were also great at getting the crowd going and teaching them how to dance- they loved it!
Private lessons with Jeremy are always fun (he was our teacher for over two years). He has a one-of-a-kind talent for explaining dance moves and creating metaphors that help you "get" both, the technical and the performing aspects of the dance. His choreography, for leader and follower, is always creative and really captures the mood of each dance. Overall, two thumbs up and highly recommend for dancers of any level. We also took a few group classes that Carolyn taught. She's a friendly, easy-going instructor who makes everyone welcome, regardless of skill level. Take her class (or do a private lesson with her) as a fun and light date night activity. :)
Excellent instructor who really went the extra mile to teach salsa to novice dancers at our Cinco de Mayo party.
Alpa did both my husband's and my henna tattoos on the same day and we we're satisfied with the results. She was very friendly and hospitable. She let us hang out at her pool area afterwards as to let our tatoos dry out completely. I would definitely recommend her services.
I am a completely inexperienced 67 yo ballroom dancer, vision and balance challenged, with a history of performance anxiety. Despite these issues, Daniel was able to give me a wonderful start with enough success that I got the thrill of dancing and am inspired to continue. He was warm, patient, and encouraging in addition to being obviously very skilled and experienced.
Introductory dance class- he was clear and I did not step on his toe, so I signed up for 10 ore classes!I
Lessons with Eliott gave me confidence to social dance, which can be very intimidating! He's fun to work with and gives specific feedback by showing the steps, explaining and writing email recaps. Eliott makes every effort to tailor the class to your needs.
Yaelisa is an excellent dancer, choregrapher and teacher--I recommend her classes and work most highly.
Studio where you feel home with warm and professional dancers! Want to learn every day with them! Thank you guys for putting your soul in business!
I loved learning from Keyla! She is an amazingly beautiful dancer, and I learned a lot, especially with regards to body movement and styling.
Shortly after I started dancing I met Jeremy who introduced me to competitive dance and I really got the bug. Jeremy makes training fun! His skill with story-telling through dance, character interpretation, and emotional expressiveness are his special gifts. It's been a fantastic experience to go from knowing almost nothing about ballroom dance to having a fun and challenging practice, quite a few competitions and even a world-title under my belt. All thanks to the commitment and skill Jeremy brings to his teaching! I have seen Jeremy work with beginners, wedding couples and a variety of levels of competitive dancer...he puts everyone at ease with his good-natured personality and is wonderful at helping dancers of any skill level improve and have fun in the process. As a high-level competitive professional dancer himself he has a wealth of experience and a great ability to inspire with his grace, strength and expressiveness.
Hebert Aguilar Director of Timba Heat Dance Company is an amazing dance instructor and choreographer! His energy, enthusiasm, creativity, and passion for dancing is very evident and contagious in his form of teaching. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned dancer, Hebert will challenge you and take your dancing skills to the next level while keeping the training extremely fun and highly addictive. Prior to taking private lessons and group classes from Hebert, I had no previous dance background but I can truly say that in a short amount of time he has helped me to become a more confident and well rounded dancer and performer. I am very thankful and grateful to have the pleasure of training under an extremely talented, patient and humble instructor. Whether your goal is to learn as a beginner, enhance your dancing skills, or perform in front of an audience, I would highly recommend Hebert Aguilar. Trust me you will not be disappointed. Check out his videos and performances on Facebook (Timba Heat) and Instagram (@Timbaheat).
Nikolai was an amazing instructor. He made me feel comfortable and confident as we danced to various rhythms with different movements. His professionalism, dedication, and passion make him an ideal instructor who gives 100% to his students. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who's looking for a high-caliber professional dancer and instructor.
Tabitha was great! We had an issue with the music (my fault) and she was able to roll with the changes and dance to a belly dancing station from Pandora! Nobody knew that she didn't know the music. She was able to read the crowd and get people involved. She did a great job! Thank you!!
Samba Sensation was amazing at my wedding reception!!! Their show is the first thing my guests bring up whenever they talk about our wedding. It really got the party started and kept the energy really high. The costume were very elaborate and dancers were gorgeous! Well felt like we were in Rio. Shaunte was my contact and really great to work with in planning the details. She always responded right away and was good about checking in with me. My wife left me with the responsibility of hiring entertainment and she went over details that I didn't really think about like coverage options and colors. As it got closer and things got busier, I really appreciated that she took the initiative to coordinate with the DJ and get a contact number from me ahead of time since I didn't have a wedding planner. On the day of my reception I was able to enjoy myself and my night. Thank you!!!
Dalila came and performed for 15 minutes at a High School assembly. She arrived early to set up and check out the space and stayed to watch the whole show. The students loved her. She was very professional and fun. She worked the whole room and gave students the opportunity to get up and dance with her. She was very nice and a really talented dancer.
Carolé is a force of a woman. Not only is she a professional actor, dancer, stand-up comedian, athlete, she is so humble. She taught me some wonderful acting lessons and then I decided to go watch her do some stand-up comedy in a show and she was hilarious. You can tell she's a professional dancer by the way she moves, I'll come see her dance soon. Come and take lessons from her. She's mesmerizing.
Every dance job I've got to participate in I enjoy how much I get to learn and grow. The professionalism on every gig has helps me to be more prepared for any future gigs.

I am a professional Middle-Eastern dancer with several years' experience. I specialize in Egyptian style dance but will customize my show to your needs. I utilize props, such as cane, veil, and sword to make the show exciting, and audience participation is a big part of the fun.
