Amber & Jesse
“Corrie is absolutely magnificent at what he does! My husband and I decided 2 days before our wedding that we wanted to have some idea on what to do for our first dance. (Mainly myself, as my husband doesn’t dance...ever! So our wedding day was going to be the one chance I got to dance with him.)
I contacted Corrie and he was able to squeeze us in for a 1 hour lesson that night. At the start of the night, my husband and I had no idea how to dance together so Corrie broke it down and taught us some steps, one at a time. By the end of the hour he had us put it all together and we couldn’t believe that we were doing it! We were dancing! All night I could not wipe the smile off my face, not only was I dancing with my future husband for the first time, he was actually enjoying it too. Corrie made sure we were both feeling happy and confident for our first dance on our wedding day.”
OVER 40 DIFFERENT STYLES
Dancing is a great way to get fit, connect to your body's amazing intelligence, learn new skills, open doors to new people, places and cultures, and have a fun in the process!
Always wanted to learn how to dance? Salsa perhaps? Or the Tango ...
Private lessons are the quickest way to learn how to dance. I also offer tools to practice at home, and ways to engage the dance communities both locally and further afield.
If you have no dance experience - perfect, we are here to support you. If you do have experience, let's take your dancing to new heights (and depths).

"Corrie has taught us salsa dancing for several years. He is an amazing teacher with extensive knowledge of styling, choreography, and moves. He is very patient and his explanations are easy to understand. He is kind and motivating and never gives up on his students. Highest recommendations!"
