"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

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
