Our Review:

John & Liz are world class dancers and two of the best salsa instructors in the Bay Area. They are not just good dancers, but know how to break down moves so that they are easy to understand.

You won't just learn patterns in this class, you will learn salsa technique and musicality, which will help you become a better dancer. I've learned a lot personally from John & Liz, and this class is a great introduction to their teaching style.

Never miss another salsa event!

I attended the two lessons which were really fabulous. However the social dancing afterwards was pretty much non existent.

So if it’s some excellent basic level instruction you are looking for this is fantastic. For social dancing on a Monday better to try another venue.
