Although I have been dancing for years in many styles, and I absolutely love Kizomba, it has been a love/hate relationship with Emile of Cartara Productions.

Nearly every time I have gone to lessons with them, Emile has brought a negativity that is difficult to get past. He is condescending to dancers (especially those who are beginners) and is constantly putting people down. He is often not clear in his instructions and then becomes upset at individuals when they do not understand what he has said. Female dancer friends of mine have also complained that they often feel uncomfortable in classes.

Despite this, I have attended because there are few other kizomba classes in the bay and because generally, his rudeness was not directed in my direction. However after a payment misunderstanding where I was not only treated horribly, but personally attacked; I’m going to have to call it quits.
