What you'll do

Daily 1-3 hour experience at secret and intimate NYC apartment with music sets of either jazz or salsa and afro beats. Mostly evening private classes with social dancing options. A surprise garden setup depending on mood. Perfect for new and experienced dancers and music lovers based on my experience in NYC. I will meet at apartment and start by introducing the history and cultural relevance of the neighborhood and set expectations. Inside the apartment, we will listen to music, dance and share meaningful stories.

-30 minutes - A listening exploration of NYC through music from Queens (home to Luis Armstrong museum and other jazz legends) to Bronx (Celia Cruz and other Salsa influences) to Manhattan (BB King) and Brooklyn (Big Bands)
-30 minutes - one to one private dance instruction
-30 minutes - social dancing
-30 minutes - cafe time and storytelling/reflections

Personal tips and guidance for everyone from me to have the best experience based on your goals and experience including the easier dance styles like 3 steps east coast swing etc. My goal is a fun judgment-free and inclusive experience that makes you fall in love with yourself and NYC's creatives.

THIS IS NOT A DANCE STUDIO CLASS but a social dancing experience. Join me for two intimate hours of music listening, dancing, and storytelling!

The host is friendly but the experience is way overpriced especially as what was provided was a free-for-all event that was well publicized and could have been easily found by oneself. This experience looks for free events in the city and charges for taking you to the event. Also there are no classes provided by the host unlike what is described by host.
