“Thank you Sky for your fabulous and fun Bachata workshops which I attended earlier this year. Instructions were well explained, easy to follow, and made me feel more confident to dance in a social setting.”
“I truly loved the Bachata boot camps. The 2.5 hours is a perfect amount of time to warm up with the basic-fundamentals and then complete a good length routine that is broken down in detail and with repetition becomes easy to remember. Well paced progress though the class. Highly recommended.”
“Sky is such a lovely, knowledgeable and patient teacher. I have attended a few of her bachata bootcamps which have helped boost my skills and confidence tremendously. Her classes are simple to follow, well-paced and the environment is friendly and inclusive. Highly recommend!”
