Helena has been one of the best teachers if not the best I’ve ever got a chance to learn from. She makes class fun while paying attention to each individual student no matter the size of her class and makes sure we are actually getting the moves. I’ve learned quite a bit from her and would highly recommend anyone to learn with her!! No matter what level you are at I’m sure you will learn something!

I've progressed not only in doing the dance moves, but also in understanding why and how it works solo and partnered.

See what's coming up
