Ballroom Basics dance is a great! As they can help people with all talent-levels, my wife and I received lessons through Paul to help with our first wedding dance. As we both were horrendous dancers, Paul was able to teach us the basics and incorporate a more sophisticated style of dancing for our first dance. In total, it took us 4 dance lessons at 1 hour a piece. Paul was, most importantly, patient with us. He is a professional dancer with many accolades behind him. At times we got frustrated because were that bad but Paul incorporates his decades of expertise and teachings to make the transition flawless. Lastly, upon showing off our hard work at the wedding, we got ample compliments on how we “great dancers” we were. Thanks again, Paul!

I had a great first group Salsa lesson at CLDA. The instruction was excellent and everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I called several times with questions and the owner was always polite and helpful. Very excited to take lessons there!

    My husband and I have been taking salsa lessons with Steven since July 2013. We started with weekly private lessons and transitioned to twice monthly small group classes. In Summer 2014, our schedule shifted to private lessons once or twice monthly, though we hope to return to small group classes when they are available. Steven has a wealth, depth, and breadth of dance experience. He has sharp observation skills and an amazing understanding of body mechanics. He explains and demonstrates correct technique in very relatable terms. He offers constructive and encouraging feedback. We appreciate how we’ve developed a collaborative approach. After our first two group classes, Steven asked us how it was going for us. As the least experienced couple in the class, I told him that we struggled with the partner rotations- this was especially true for my husband because the leader in partner dancing has the much harder role. From that conversation, he adjusted the class format so that everyone benefited. Nowadays, I may write to Steven a few days in advance to tell him we want to review some figures; he’ll accommodate that at the start of the lesson, followed by something new he’d like to teach us. In addition, he offers insight and tips on social dancing. My husband calls Steven “the Dance Whisperer.” Whether you are brand new to salsa or looking to brush up, Steven has much to offer.

    I have been taking the Jehlen Modern dance technique with founder Wendy Jehlen for about a year. Wendy's technique is special. You will feel peaceful, streteched out, centered and physically stronger after just one session. She teaches at a pace that is good for both beginners and seasoned movers. Her music is fantastic! I am happy she is back from her journey to India, her class was missed by me and many of my movement mates. On a scale of 1-5, I give her class a 5+.

    I was referred to Steele for West Coast Swing lessons. I was a beginner and new to partner dancing in general. Steele taught me the basics, helped me to understand styling in movement, and kept the styles current with what I would see in dances. He helped me to build confidence and before long I was able to enjoy the WCS dances with much more experienced dancers. Steele was encouraging, fun, and a dynamic teacher. I would highly recommend Steele.


    When I started dancing, I was a complete newbie to both dance and music. I had never danced a single step in my life, had no idea what salsa music was like, and was in poor shape to boot. Over the years, salsa dancing has transformed my life and given me a tremendously positive outlet to pour my energy into. I want to share my love of dance with others, and also help provide them with the resources to further their own growth. To that end, I have a very technical and detailed approach to dance that came from my own trials and struggles as a complete beginner. When working with my students, I'm very attentive to their individual hiccups and strengths and try to focus on the latter while informing them about the former. I also never give up on a student! As long as they're willing, so am I.
