OUR VALUED COMMUNITY IS WHAT MAKES OUR STUDIO A SUCCESS. See more of our glowing reviews at Listen360!

We have only been to one tango class-however we felt the atmosphere was very welcoming, professional-yet easy going. The breakdown of the steps was very helpful and we were encouraged to dance and figure things out and not just watch the teachers.
I have been truly impressed by the well rounded approach that the instructor used during the first dance lesson with the 3 year old group. My daughter looked like she truly enjoyed the lesson. She happily participated and eagerly repeated the various dance moves. I loved the variety of dancing music and techniques that instructor used during the first dance class. It was fun and very much enjoyable experience for both of us. We hope the LaVida Dance Studio will help our daughter to grow into a confident dancer.
