We're super excited to dance Bachata with you!
When we first started dancing and then eventually teaching Bachata, there wasn't a consistent, reliable way to make sure beginners were able to learn. Most of the time it was a coin-flip whether a student would become a dancer or not.
So we developed our step-by-step program to help even the most inexperienced dancer learn everything they needed to know to get on the dance floor and have other dancers wanting and waiting to dance with them!
Our philosophy is: Dancing is for Everybody!
So come along, join the course, and surprise yourself!
See you on the dance floor...
- Jai and Diane
Warning: Bachata is addictive!
