“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!”
“The 2.5 hour boot camp for beginners is a fun and approachable way to get into Bachata. The class is structured to ensure that you’re able to follow along easily and still receive individual attention as required. Sky is very encouraging, friendly and her passion for Bachata is infectious!”
“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.”
