Introduction: The best way to learn how to dance is not only to find a good teacher but also someone who enjoys doing this sort of dance for fun. I've been dancing for 21 years partner dancing.

I focus on teaching musicality and I always make sure you are learning moves that only suits your personality so you can hit the beat like a super star👌

We were searching for private lessons for our first dance and are glad we found Lorans. Lorans is very good at his craft. He has been dancing for a while. We had 0 dancing experience so he did a lot of work on us to get us ready by our wedding day. He helped us learn the basics and choreographed a fun routine. Although we initially reached out to Lorans with an example video in mind and a different style of dance, we are glad to have switched to bachata. Our guests really enjoyed the dance! It was very fun to learn and Lorans has good feedback to help you improve! His method can be a little brash sometimes but he means well! Overall, if you’re looking to have fun & learn a new dance style, would recommend Lorans!

The best experience we have had. He is helping us with our wedding choreography for our big day! Our first dance is super important for us. But we also have no experience in dancing, so we wanted something simple. Loranz has been very patient with us and making sure we understand the dance moves. He uses great analogy and terms for us to understand what exactly we are doing and how it should be done. Loranz believe in us when we dance, even though we wanted something simple, Loranz loves to add in more because he thinks we can do it which motivates us and gives us the courage to be open with ourselves. Loranz is very passionate and professional when it comes to his dancing. He’s also a cool and funny person, which makes the environment more comfortable to around. Definitely worth getting!!

Lawrence is an amazing dance instructor and I feel so lucky to have found him! His dance classes are on average 45 minutes long and he keeps you moving the entire time! I have learned so much in a short amount of time particularly with proper form and technique. He specializes in Bachata and Salsa as well as Ballroom. He is an absolute professional and also one of the kindest human beings I’ve ever been around. He makes dancing fun and exciting which is what it’s supposed to be. Thank You Lawrence!

Details: 46-65 • One person (one-on-one with instructor) • Salsa • Beginner • Developing a hobby • 60 minutes • Once a week • At the pro’s location

Loranz was easy to work with and he was able to get a little rhythm back in these old bones. Look forward to our next lesson.
