I highly recommend taking salsa classes with Joel and Maria. I’ve never taken dance classes before, so a welcoming environment was extremely important to me. Joel and Maria not only made me feel completely comfortable, but they make learning salsa fun. I participated first with a partner and then decided to continue the next course on my own. Both experiences have not only been extremely rewarding, but I can see a huge difference in my confidence on the dance floor.
Some people are born with a gift to teach – Joel and Maria are those people.

“Our experience with Maria Palmieri was awesome! My fiance and I went to Maria a few months prior to our wedding. Neither of us had ever taken any form of dance before, and all we knew how to do was sway back and forth together. I was nervous that no amount of classes would help. Maria took our wedding song and customized a perfect dance for us, which we were able to learn in a short period of time. Each lesson we received built on the lesson before— so it was easy to see and feel ourselves improving. Every class was fun, and Maria did an excellent job of keeping me and my reluctant fiance motivated. We learned so much- and our wedding dance was perfect.  Thank you Maria!”

“Maria helped us learn our first dance for our wedding. We are so glad we choose her for this
very special occasion.  She was a great teacher!
She was so patient with us and always took the time to make sure we understood the dance moves, a real professional. She made us feel relaxed, comfortable and free to make mistakes. The dance turned out perfect and we have Maria to thank for that.
She gave us a memory to last a lifetime.”
