Joel and Maria are amazing! I always felt very shy about dancing salsa, despite the fact that I loved it. My friend and I decided to do the 8-week bootcamp and figured we had nothing to lose. It was simply wonderful. Not only was I able to learn basics and build confidence, the other participants were so nice, too! There is a strong sense of community within the group and I felt very comfortable. They hold socials and workshops and that was super helpful when it came to practicing. I think Joel and Maria are amazing instructors and I can’t recommend them enough.

Amazing teachers! Instructions are clear, well directed and in one class you walk out with 5 new steps. They pay close attention to each student ensuring everyone is on the same page. And each of the instructor’s energy is happy, positive and professional!! Highly recommend if you’re ready to learn and dance in no time!
