    Great course
    I take Salsa classes and currently at Basic level 3. This course is a great supplement to what I'm learning and incorporate. Would love to see the next level of this course. And would love to see other Latin style dancing courses, such as Bachata, Cumbia and Cha-cha.

  2. Titus says:

    Excellent for Beginners
    This course changed my life! I set a goal to learn Salsa and Josie definitely covered everything I needed to know; I'm even able to dance at local Latin clubs. Between practicing with this course and dancing with other people, I've become a much better dancer.

  3. Desiree Lewis says:

    Wonderful Salsa Course
    Although this class is advertised as a beginning class, I was able to get a lot out of it and I am a strong intermediate dancer. Josie is so graceful and points out all of the elements that go into making a dancer look great on the floor. I highly recommend this class.
