We loved Erin! Her personality is great and she is a wonderful dance instructor. She was our cheerleader, encouraging us and making us feel good about our dance and everything else. We combined three different styles into one song and pulled it off with her help. We enjoyed our time so much, we want to continue some dance lessons in the future. Thank you Erin.

In short, Caroline is a fantastic teacher and you should absolutely take lessons from her if you're interested in learning Salsa. Caroline is warm, kind, patient, and understanding. I confessed immediately to her that I had "two left feet" and no prior dance experience. This was no obstacle to her. Our lesson included a lot of rhythm work. Though it was my first lesson, I'm already feeling more confident. To top things off, she gave me "homework" to ensure I could continue teaching myself some muscle memory. It is very clear she is very gifted as both a dancer and a teacher!

I was nervous about beginning dance lessons, but after a few lessons with Desiree I feel comfortable and confident dancing with anyone. Desiree is professional and very enthusiastic, and she made our lessons really fun! I had a great experience with her and recommend it to everyone!

Marge is amazing! She knows what she's doing and what you need to focus on once she sees you dancing. She has lots of experience under her belt. She knows more than 15 different dances and loves to dance and have a great time. From just 2 salsa lessons I'm loving it!

We took dance lessons from Alpa for our first dance at our wedding reception. She choreographed the whole thing and even asked us for our input and offered to let us change things based on comfort and preference. She did a great job though and me being the control freak that I am, I'm surprised that I didn't have a single change request! Let me stress that neither one of us are dancers and I was very worried about doing the dance in front of so many of our friends and family. But Alpa was so patient with us and made us feel so comfortable. We feel like we've known her for years yet we just met her a couple weeks ago! We learned the dance in two lessons and we will be back for our final lesson next week just to practice in front of her with my 25 lb lehenga and heels. If you need dance lessons of any kind, she is your girl! Thank you, Alpa! We are so thrilled that you will be a part of our big day in such a big way.

I had so much fun working with Isaac on my first lesson! The vibe was super friendly and we went over a half-dozen basic steps, giving me plenty of material to practice on. This is exactly what I was seeking from private hip-hop dance lessons.

Freddy is fabulous! We hired her for a mom / son dance for his bar mitzvah. This was not a typical slow dance. We asked her to copy the choreography from our favorite video. She showed up at the studio having already broken down the choreography for us. Then she had us go through some warmup dancing and started the choreography. She was incredibly responsive to our needs. I wanted the dance broken down for me a certain way so I could nail the steps. She was supportive of my son, who had never taken a dance lesson. Within the time we booked, we nailed the dance and video'd the choreography. Cannot say enough good things about Freddy. She's upbeat, friendly and makes you feel welcome in a dance studio.

Jasmine transformed dancing for me. Before taking a few lessons with her, dancing was a huge source of anxiety for me -- I avoided it at all costs. Jasmine helped me find the beat, offered me reassurance about the learning process, and eventually gave me a repertoire of moves to draw on. I danced at my wedding thanks to Jasmine. Also, she is super reliable, punctual, kind, and professional. I recommend her very, very highly. I am so thankful!

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.

Nikolai is my Latin dance teacher and I have been dancing with him since January 2018. In a short amount of time, I have improved my dancing so much that we competed at the San Francisco Open in April 2018 on the Open Silver category earning 1st places in all single dances (chacha, samba, rumba, pasodoble and jive). Nik is an expert dance teacher who has great knowledge and enthusiasm. He is patient and gives just the right level of instruction and correction. I enjoyed every dance lesson with Nik and I highly recommend him.

Monica Santana was fantastic. We requested a lesson for our wedding dance and she promptly followed up, had listened to our wedding song before, and gave us a great lesson. She also followed up with written instructions that helped us a ton. I would recommend her to anyone looking for dance lessons. Such a great teacher.

I love having lessons with Sarah. She really explains things so clearly so I can understand. I’m a competitive dancer, and she’s helped me with posture and styling and many other things needed to perform. I was able to get much more info out of her than I would having a male on my subjects. She’s passionate and patient! I highly recommend her!

      My partner and I took dance lessons from Justin for about a year and a half. In the course of 20+ lessons, he took our rudimentary understanding of dance to a competitive level. I always felt like he was sensitive to our comfort level and made very complex styles and moves accessible to us. Few teachers have an understanding of club, international and competitive dance styles in the way that Justin does. He is a gifted, patient and extremely fun teacher.
