The Intermediate/Advanced Salsa class has really helped me on my footwork. I had been self-teaching for almost 2 years. I attended my first salsa congress and I got some feedback that my footwork and timing were not consistent. I then sought out to take classes and this was my first finding. I called and spoke to Gloria on the phone, showed her a video of me dancing at the congress and she then told me to enter her intermediate class. I informed her of my desire to be as good a dancer as possible and not to hold back from the smallest thing that I needed to fix. She has complied with my wishes to my knowledge. The class is very well organized, she makes sure you understand the steps, and gives commendation when appropriate. I would recommend learning from Gloria to anyone who asked about where to take classes for Salsa On1. One day I may even get to have a social dance with Gloria herself to see where I stand with the pros.
I started with Gloria's classes as a beginner salsa dancer. The studio is fabulous and I was impressed from day one. Gloria's teaching method is professional while maintaining a fun and friendly environment for everyone so you leave the class feeling great. The steps are explained thoroughly and you move up the levels as you master each step. You get plenty of practice in the class, no time is ever wasted. Gloria manages to give individual attention to everyone so you never feel left out or overwhelmed. Also, the students are diverse, friendly, and supportive. Your confidence as a dancer grows as well as making new friends. I highly recommend Gloria's dance studio to all the dance enthusiasts.
I walked into my first beginner class last October as a “salsa toddler”…had no sense of where my feet were supposed to land, bumping into walls and people. Tina not only patiently broke it down for all of us beginners, she also kept it engaging, and within the next couple months I was hooked to salsa!
Moving to intermediate level in January was like hitting “salsa puberty” - not fun… almost uncomfortable and weird. Imagine trying to lead the spins and turns while remembering your footwork. I owe it to Milly for helping me come out of my salsa puberty, getting relaxed (guess the hormones started calming down) and before I knew it, I started developing leading skills. Milly is a truly gifted salsa instructor with loads of fun, empathy and encouragement. Her teaching style is nuanced and rooted in solid technique.
With fresh moves and patterns every month, Gloria and her team have made complex salsa patterns enjoyable and accessible to the entire spectrum of salsa students in their classes. If you are like me and believe that our skills are not fully formed when we come out of our eggshells, come and join Dance Passion for a fascinating journey into the world of dancing.
We plan to dance salsa as part of our first-dance at our wedding next year and we love how much material we are learning! Our friends and family were very impressed with our dance moves at a recent wedding we went to. :) We are excited to be moving to the Advanced salsa class next month.
