Thanks again Shaan!" - Stella

1Day Bachata Testimonials

 

"I bought myself an Intensive 1-day Bachata class for my 40th birthday recently - and I have truly enjoyed the class! I was rather surprised that there were more men than women in my class. After 6 hours of being on my feet, and a few many giggles later, I was convinced to try to pick either salsa or bachata properly on a 1-to-1 classes. Caramelo management team has been extremely professional. kind and went out of their way to find out what I was looking to match my skills and what type of teaching style I would feel most comfortable with - so that they can recommend the right teacher. They really do take care of their students well. I would recommend them :)" - Christina Chan


"Had a great day in the One Day Intensive Bachata! Clean rooms, friendly teachers and excellent tuition! I learnt so much, and a longer day definitely helps drill it in" - Lauren


"After doing a 1 day intensive bachata course, I've signed up for more bachata classes and a salsa course. I had an excellent day with a brilliant teacher. I’d not danced a step of bachata before the lesson, and by the end I could do a whole routine. The day progressed at a good pace, with enough repetition to learn the steps fully. I highly recommend Caramelo. I’ve tried other dance schools and Caramelo is definitely superior." - Rebekah Taylor
