Classes will be taught and managed by myself, Hazelyn (Maria) Paul with assistance from other professional teachers. I am a professional Latin and Ballroom dance instructor with over 17 years experience. My passion for dance and teaching dance have taught me how to empower couples and individuals using the art of dance, and the skills and techniques to make my students look and dance to the best of their individual abilities while keeping my lessons fun and exciting. Dance creates an energy of happiness amongst each other.

I take a lot of pride in watching the transformation and excitement of my students as they learn, grow and enjoy their new world of "dance".
