Was very fun! I got to learn a new Colombian dance which was cool. I knew the others - was mainly there to teach my bf. My 1 frustration was they teach on 2 whereas I’m used to dancing salsa on 1, but that’s what’s local so was fine. Also was very hot - would love AC or no masks with vaccinated people :)

It was great meeting Mauricio and working with the professional dancer. He was so knowledgeable and both of their energy and positivity made for a great learning environment for my wife and I!

We had so much fun! Definitely a must do for the price. Instructors were pleasant. Drinks were awesome! And you don't have to be a good dancer. They make you feel comfortable.

This was an amazing experience! I never imagined salsa dancing would be so much fun.. not to mention a workout. Everyone was so friendly and made things so easy to learn. It truly was a personal experience!
