Our students have been showing love for our studio and what we’re teaching!
We love our students and their 5-Star reviews on Google show us that they love us too!
The teachers at Mayambo are so patient. I’m not the quickest learner or the best dancer, but they’re very attuned to the strengths and weaknesses of their students…they doesn’t rush the students. Because of that, my skills have improved…every class is energy-filled and fun!
If your goal is to improve your balance, leading/following skills, or your dancing in general, Mayambo can be an amazing guide and companion on this journey, with an incredible eye and talent for identifying small or big things to improve, which in turn will reflect in your dancing, transforming it into a more enjoyable dancing experience both to you and the partners you dance with.
For me, working with Mayambo is a genuine exchange of the joy of dance. They focuses on getting you seriously prepared for your dance journey, always pushing you to reach for your full potential…You to never take yourself too seriously, and most importantly, they make the whole learning process fun! It’s a pleasure to learn from Mayambo ❤️
