I have danced with Salsa International for quite some time and it is by far THE best studio there is in NYC for various reasons: -you can actually dance salsa just after completing the one month basic class, yes it can get tough but very rewarding. Instructors are very caring and invested and are fantastic dancers. The classes range from Basic through Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Advanced, on 1 - on 2 - mixed rhythms: cha cha , bachata, merengue, rueda.....never stop learning and having fun. also a fantastic social get away. great people there and a wonderful and continuously growing and steady community. i read the only 1 bad review on here and i must say: what were you smoking when you were there - ha ha : ) that is not the gina everyone knows. director of the studio, extremely talented, the best energy, BEST teacher!!!!!!!! tough at times, i am not gonna lie : ) and all the other instructors, Junes (mmh : ) ), Mike, Veronica, Katie, Ryan, Yoshi etc etc. are all great, everyone has their own twist and will improve your style. you can tell i am a fan of SI - so will you!!!! all thumbs up, well that makes it 2 thumbs up for this Salsa studio : )
Pros: Instructors, Challenge Factor, Social Community!!!
Cons: Little bit crowded during "Salsa" season, but cause it's the best : )
