Charles is an awesome instructor! I had so much fun at our first lesson. It was very low pressure, and he has the perfect methods to work on my particular areas for growth. I can't wait for the next lesson!May 25, 2017Verified

Charles was outstanding to work with and I used him to help us plan our first dance. As a beginning dancer with no rhythm, Charles had his work cut out. Throughout the process, Charles was great at listening to our goals and able to put an achievable game plan together so we'd be ready on the big day. He was extremely patient and able to adapt to our skill level by using different approaches as necessary. Whether you are a beginner like me or looking to perfect your technique, Charles can certainly tailor a program to help you reach your goals.Sep 2, 2016
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I am usually $55/hr, plus whatever the studio charges me for space rental (usually around $15/hr).
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been training (because a good dancer never stops learning) for over 20 years, primarily in partnered dances. I have studied salsa and bachata under and been coached by a wide range of influential instructors and coaches, such as Eddie Torres, Jose Serrano, Billy Fajardo, Angel Martinez, Fausto Felix, Adam Taub, Jorge Buenos, and Carlos Cinta. I am licensed and certified in ballroom by DVIDA in International and American styles, and trained for 6 years with some of the best ballroom coaches in the States.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I work approximately 50% of the time with single dancers 1-on-1, whether coaching an experienced dancer in a routine to get ready for competition or teaching a beginner the basics. The other half of the time I work with couples, again ranging from helping wedding couples put together a first dance all the way to coaching competitive partnerships.
