Lots of fun! Igrid was easy going, funny, and fun to learn from. My husband and I didn't stop smiling the whole hour!
There was a bit of a mix up about the location of the lesson. Everyone arrived at different times. But, once we got started it was a lot of fun. The instructor made is simple and fun. She broke it down to easy steps. We were in the park. Terrific!!!Up
This is a must! This was our groups first event in Puerto Rico and it set the tone for the rest of the trip! We had Steven and he worked us to the max! Great class! Learned the basics of salsa, and we left the class feeling like professionals! Steven took his time with everyone and made sure we all felt comfortable with the moves before proceeding in to the next steps. Bring water because you will be moving a lot!
We took the beginner class, and it was just the best. The instructor (Steven) teaching the class was great as he was very patient and ready to help. His class was really fun, which made the whole lesson a wonderful experience!
My boyfriend and I were visiting Puerto Rico for the week so I wanted to check out a club for salsa. I’ve been taking salsa classes for over a year now, but he is completely new to salsa. The teacher Steven was really patient, fun, and energetic. He was able to teach my boyfriend the basic steps in no time. The pair dance was fun and really helpful for both of us. It turned out to be a private class so we were able to get a lot of attention during the lesson, which was awesome. After the class, we were able to go out dancing salsa and have a good time. Thanks so much Steven for all the help! Now, my boyfriend is starting to like salsa too.
We have two left feet, but our instructor was patient and encouraging anyway. We had a great time and may even take some more salsa lessons at home (private ones though so less people witness us tripping over our own feet next time!)
