Student Reviews

  • Nelson’s method of teaching salsa is so natural that within a few sessions you surprise yourself with how well you can dance. He teaches you to move so fluently, follow the rhythm instinctively and make your steps innately, as if you have been dancing salsa for years. Nelson’s approach makes each lesson so enjoyable that at the end you are looking forward to the next one. And you know there will be new moves introduced each time to challenge you and progress you further.
  • I have been taking classes with Nelson for a year now : they are the highlight of my week! Not only has my ability and confidence grown under Nelson’s guidance but I always have a lot of fun. He has a unique ability to know just how much to challenge you so the learning feels effortlessly. I feel privileged to have Nelson as my teacher and would recommend him to anyone wanting to experience the joy of salsa dancing.

  • Nelson’s lessons are well paced and are always individually tailored. He is very professional in his approach and fortunately has a seemingly endless supply of patience!

    His lessons are always enjoyable and provide an excellent workout at the same time; my balance, stamina and general levels of fitness have all improved since beginning lessons with him.

Please ensure that personal hygiene is maintained. It is very unpleasant to dance with someone whose personal hygiene leaves much to be desired. So please be considerate to your dance partner and others around you, by remembering to use breath fresheners and deodorants to prevent anyone from being offended by any unpleasant aromas.

Salsa dancing can be energetic and for those who are equally energetic and/or sweat a lot, we recommend you obtain wet wipes or a flannel/towel to wipe and dry yourself with throughout the lesson, evening and/or night. Using wet wipes or a flannel/towel is perfectly acceptable, as salsa dancing can be very physical and can cause even the fittest person to sweat.
