Look no further- I read all the reviews before booking a one-hour session (wedding dance) with Gonzalo and he is the best! My only regret is not leaving time before our wedding for another session! Our wedding is this weekend and we feel like we’ll be that much less embarrassing thanks to Gonzalo. He was so patient, fun and we had a blast. We’re excited to book another session, this time for salsa!Apr 18, 2018Verified
Gonzo came in and saved the day. The last thing on our wedding checklist was dancing lessons. We procrastinated. He came quickly and took a couple hours and choreographed with style a father/daughter dance & a bride/groom dance. He made everyone at ease. The dances turned out beautifully. Thanks Gonzo!Aug 20, 2017Verified
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I always seek to improve myself with lessons from teachers of various fields relating to movement and art. So I am knowledgeable about almost all aspects of how people think and see themselves in move across space. I have become an expert at walking with good posture and poise. We take these three for granted so studying them is a must if you want to dance well
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I love the feeling I have when I am lost in the moment and I am moving with the music. So as early as I can remember I wanted to dance. Teaching dance was just another way to keep dancing as much of time as possible. I have never had any other full time job.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I have trained dancers from all walks of life. I teach children and senior citizens and everyone in between and at all skill levels, from the most novices to professionals. I have not met anyone that could not learn to dance no matter how clumsy they felt at the start because they all respond well to the positive reinforcement I am able to convey.
