What People Say
It’s a huge pleasure for us to share dance with other people. They seem to like it, too.
Horacio, thank you for working with me yesterday and showing me my first steps. You were easy to learn from because you explained the steps in a way I could understand and started with small, uncomplicated movements. I also appreciated your calm nature—it made me feel relaxed and able to move on from my mistakes when my feet got mixed up. Anyone you teach is lucky to learn from you!

I’ve been hearing a lot about this new dance called zouk, which looks like poetry in motion. I decided to set up a private lesson with Horacio and Chelsey to help me learn this sensual dance and incorporate it into my bachata dancing. Horacio and Chelsey showed me the zouk movement basics and how these movements are interpreted and reciprocated between partners. Thanks to both of you for your inspiration and patience in teaching me this beautiful dance.

I recently discovered zouk and fell in love with the movements and the music, which I find entrancing. Fortunately I met Horacio and Chelsey–two zouk instructors who dance with passion, grace and beauty. Through two private lessons, I learned more than I ever hoped for. They taught me to relax, connect to my partner and allow myself to follow, while also executing my basic steps the proper way. Thank you Horacio and Chelsey for introducing me to this beautiful dance!
