Classe Dance Company
We came from humble beginnings with our director growing up in the city of Lima, Peru. Dancing is a part of life for all Latin Americans. We express our passion for life though dancing and it is our belief that dancing should fill you with joy, it shouldn't be about just memorizing steps like a robot. Classe was established to share and teach this same love of dancing with everyone in the D.M.V. We would teach without a studio driving from house to house for private lessons, teaching at local dance clubs and traveling to dance venues just trying to establish a name for ourselves. We frequently traveled to Spain and South America to work with the greatest dancers in the world and refine our skills as instructors. As time moved on we gained a passionate following of students who helped turn Classe into what it is today. Now we are blessed to be able to teach all levels of students, train dance teams, work with kids and to promote the empowerment of women.

The process first begins with assesing the students level of dance so they are placed into the proper leve of classes. We have options for every skill level and want our students to have fun but also push themselves to be the best they can be.

I have been dancing for over 17 years and teaching professionally for the last 5 years.
