"I came into this thinking, I would just take a basic class and take my moves to the dance floor. Once I got that first lesson, I was hooked and now I can't put it down. Cassandra is an excellent teacher with yrs of experience. Her technical teaching has helped me understand the difference in why a move is made. Her patience has helped my confidence on the dance floor and I have come to appreciate her teaching style. I am work in progress and did not give a rating of five because Cassandra told me that you never stop learning and improving in dance and while I am still perfecting my skills she will always have work to do..."

"I have been doing Latin dance for about 3 months now and have taken classes from instructors all around charlotte. I must say though that cassandra is my personal favorite. With her warm personality, contagious smile, and unihibited energy she lights up the room wherever she goes. I started out with two left feet but after two short months of salsa, bachata, and cha cha classes Its safe to say I am confident on the dance floor, and never do I worry about looking foolish. Cassandra is without a doubt the best at what she does."
B. Childers
"I absolutely love working with Cassandra. She's patient, fun, exciting, and very sincere. The vibe she brings to her passion is incredible and I recommend anyone that think they want to learn to dance meet her first. Once the hour is up, you will know you wan to dance!!!! I am extremely pleased to have met Cassandra and every chance I get I praise her for many reason. This woman is remarkable and I'm very thankful I was blessed with the opportunity to have met her.... Keep it up Cassandra!!!!"
O. Cunningham

"Cassandra is warm, encouraging, talented, and makes each lesson FUN! She really puts the time in to make you feel comfortable. She not only teaches you the steps, but also explains why you are doing certain movements in a way that makes the whole process that much easier - and more enjoyable! Her passion for dance and teaching is infectious; you will not only learn how to dance like a true pro but also have a great time doing it!"

M. Dotson

"I love Cassandra's classes in so many ways that I'm sure I'll leave something out, but here are the reasons that come to mind immediately:

1) My husband and I spent several hundred dollars on a "Ballroom introductory package" at an unnamed Charlotte  studio in 2009. The instructors were good, but the environment was so formal that it was hard to actually enjoy myself, and I quickly lost interest for that reason. NOT so with Cassandra and her classes. She keeps it casual, fun, and she has seemingly endless patience with those of us who are struggling with new steps.
 
2) Confession: I'm not a fan of exercise (especially cardio), but I love her classes. Who knew exercise and fun could occur simultaneously?! I'm not a ZX Fitness member, but if I ever decide to join a gym, it'll be ZX. The staff is great and they treat us wonderfully, regardless of our membership status.

3) I've met some truly wonderful people because of her classes.

3) Even my 17-year old daughter has developed an interest in Latin ballroom dancing since meeting Cassandra, and the classes are affordable enough that we can actually go on a regular basis. Admission- $5 per person; Wardrobe- $? (just dress comfortably); Quality time with your loved ones? Priceless."

 We also offer private lessons and semi private lessons which have less people per lesson than a group lesson allowing for more personal attention and more detailed focus on technique.   Semi- private lessons are a great option for a couples date night!
