By joining our program you have just accepted the fact that you will be a real dancer! Not just a salsa dancer but an all around dancer! It is up to you how far you want this dream and determination to take you. Good luck tomorrow at orientation.

    Hi everyone do to the high volume of people wanting to do this program I will need a count of how many people are coming to the Step Ladder Program on February 1st? I will only be accepting a total of 14 dancers because I really need to focus on them. If we have a lot more then that the quality of instruction won't be the same. So the first 14 people that sign up are the ones who will start this first session. The others will have to wait another 3 months. You can txt or call me to reserve your spot[masked]
