"I attended the intensive salsa beginners class last Saturday and loved it! It was my first time trying salsa and I was amazed how much we learnt within a few hours. Shaan was a fantastic teacher and everyone in the class was friendly and encouraging. I’m definitely looking into taking more classes and will bring my husband along to give it a try too! Thanks again Shaan!" - Stella, Jun 2014

"I cannot recommend Shaan enough. He is an excellent teacher, full of enthusiasm. He made the day very enjoyable. All the steps and turns were taught really thoroughly to fantastic salsa music. A great day. Fantastic value for money for the level of teaching. The studios are great spacious and mirrored. I will definitely be back." - Samantha, Apr 2014
