Wilfredo is a consummate lover and teacher extraordinaire of Dance and Music. His integrity and professionalism in the arena of teaching are superb and I strongly recommend enjoying and discovering his world of Salsa and Bachata dance. Thank you for your example and leadership in the world of dance and music!

DJ Willi is an excellent teacher, an amazing dancer, and a very genuine person. He’s devoted so much of his time and energy towards both practicing and teaching Salsa, bachata and other latin dances. His passion for the music and commitment to the community comes across in everything he does, from hosting free, weekly dance classes to working with local restaurants to bring in business and create more oppportunities for dance. I would highly recommend him as a teacher, and know he’s always welcoming newcomers into the community that he created and built, largely by himself.

So far I’ve attended a Weds Monterey and a Friday Monterey Pines events. Both are superb examples of how to promote/gather/teach and enjoy Latin music on the Peninsula! Classes are filled to the max-so, there’s room to find your very own spot on the floor and learn-practise or have fun. One of my many dance issue is -turning. Willie and his assistant gave me as much personal attention as possible. This made me feel real good. However, it also shows his concern for the people who are learning. The Bachata is such a lovely rythmic and easy dance. My wisfe and I have busy weeknights, which makes participating in the Weds Salinas parties kinda difficult. When we’re available we make it a point to go! Bigg Cheers and Huggs to Willi- Gracias Brodi! Te deseo lo mejor …

Thanks DJ Willi for helping me evolve from a newbie stumbling all over the basic to a slightly more advanced salsera who can usually keep up with the social dancers :) I can’t wait to learn more combos and styling.
