Step N Dance is a great place if you want to learn how to dance. But it is also a place to enjoy new friends, laugh, and relax. Dance classes have helped me work on other areas of life that I would not have thought about. One of them is that I recovered my sense of sensuality as a woman, which I left behind when I became a mom. Another, is that I can relate to persons more easily, I do not feel people are invading my space. I have recovered my sense of humor, and engage in humorous conversations. Tony also has life insights that help you to dance and approach on your life. This is a place to stay, make, friends, and learn with passion many Latin moves. I love Step N dance.

Salsabor tropical dance class is one of the best things that has happened to me , at first I was a skeptic about going to a dance class because I thought it would be hard or I wouldn't get any good results , but it was the opposite with these classes. The teachers Kevin,Orlando and Tony are very patient and they interact with everybody to make sure that we are learning and comfortable at the same time . The learning environment has enough space , so it is not too packed . Since I have started taking classes here I have improved tremendously and I feel healthier and more relaxed with my body . I would recommend anybody to take theses classes without regret.
