some true happiness
This was my 60th birthday party so it was very important to me to have an instructor that was not only good but a lot of fun. Ruby was excellent! She was on time, friendly, pleasant, looked terrific, a great instructor, so professional. She was able to quickly assess her "students" and make adjustments here and there, she taught us country line dancing and salsa, and made it so much fun. Everyone told me afterwards how much they enjoyed Ruby's dance lessons. She was very affordable too. I will definitely have her back for my next party and recommend her to my friends and acquaintances.
She's really good with the kids. She choreographed my daughter's 15th birthday and my daughter didn't want one but after her and her friends training and sessions with Ruby, she said it was the best decision her mom has ever made. Excellent work, I'd highly recommend!
Very patient and pleasure to be with.
First focusing on their understanding on the topic and seeing their technical strengths if desired to pursue dancing or if completely new to dance focus mainly on basic steps to better their skills.
I have studied dance at a university level and have been involved in the field as a child. I have competed on paso de ore dance company as well as cal state Fullerton salsa competitive team, and even performed on a production team in high school. Growing up I was involved on a production team In jr high and danced on the drill team in elementary.
I have also taught many formal events and began teaching my first team at boys & girls club of my elementary school.
I began teaching 5 to 13 years and have moved up to high school level and even taught at a college event a few times. Currently, I am also teaching 2 to 8 years of age.
