Helping people to see the best in them and showing them their potential, making people smile, laughing a lot.
Maria is professional, easy to work with, and comes fully prepared for each dance lesson. When teaching she is present and committed to ensuring students grasp content and have a great time!
I have taught several WCS lessons with Maria and they have always been so much fun! She cares about technique but making it fun for her students. She is very committed to sharing her passion for dance and it’s always been a pleasure working with her. Also she is very creative and has a very unique style! I definitely recommend either working with her as a co-instructor or learning from her! You won’t be dissapointed!
Maria is by far the best dance instructor I have worked with. She is classically trained with a strong foundation in a wide range of dances. The greatest improvement I have made in my dance has been through working with her. She understands dance movement with high technical precision that she is able to explain with ease. She is charming and fun to work with. I look forward to every lesson with her!
Maria is very talented and professional dance instructor. She incorporates warm up exercises and explanation with demonstration that enable students to easily follow her through a dance lesson, She is respectful and answers question immediately.Her optimism is a refreshing quality,

I started teaching in 2016 group classes and privates in Phoenix because dance studio owner (where I was taking lessons) told me I should start teaching and gave me this beautiful opportunity to open myself as dance instructor.
