What people say…

I wanted to improve my Balboa following for social dancing so I booked a private lesson with Simon. I had taken some group classes before the lesson, but I wanted to focus on technique and make sure I wasn’t developing any bad habits. Simon did a fantastic job of running through all of the basics and he gave me lots of really good advice on frame, weight and positioning. He was excellent at quickly spotting where I was making mistakes and explaining how I could improve. The things he taught me were really helpful and I would highly recommend Simon’s lessons to any dancer looking to improve.
