Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I like to first give a short history on the origins of salsa. We learn how to count to the beat of the music. I then like to provide a playlist after our basic introductory class so that the student gets his/her ear accustumed to the psychedelic beats of the Salsa music. Truly you will fall in love with the experience I offer. I love teaching others specially if they have interest.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I taught with Salsa Mia in Miami at the famous Mangoes for one year. A busy tourist latin spot that offered dinner and a class type packages. I then opened my own little tour company because I loved it so much. I have been doing tours for three years now along with teaching a salsa class as part of the experience. Check out my website miamitours.co
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I am in Orlando, Meadow Woods area. As you know Orlando is full of tolls and great distances. I prefer to sell packages as you get more bang for the buck? I think that's how that saying goes :) Hourly rates start at $150 per couple. Package of (4 classes) start at $60 per class for 1 or 2 people.
How did you get started teaching?
At Mangoes Latin Cafe with Salsa Mia Inc.
What types of students have you worked with?
I worked with two left feet, Intermediate dancers, Professionals but mostly tourists.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I am fond of sharing through cultural experiences hence why I curated different tours inclusive of salsa dance classes in Miami. Looking to expand in Orlando. This is a work in progress.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
What are your goals? Are you looking to learn in two days? Because that will not happen! We give you the material and it's up to you to take time out of your busy days to practice on your own. Also, patience. You must have patience. As always, you must like your instructor. Not everyones energy will match and sometimes we have certain expectations on how fast we can learn and become annoyed quickly. Define your goals, come in with a drive to learn and we will have fun.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
What style do they want to learn? There are three different styles. I teach on1. There's also cuban style called casino or rueda and lastly there is salsa dancing on2. These are all based on the beat of the music and type of songs etc.. So there goes my first lesson :) 2. Are you getting ready for a special event? 3 if yes, you might want to consider a package.
