I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my private lessons here! You are getting the bang for your buck and sooooo much more. I’ve taken classes at the MOST popular places in the city and NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE stacks up to the knowledge and understand of the way the body works like Mayambo! This is the best kept secret in the city (well not anymore because I just told you)!

Del once told me that I would give up on me before he gave up on me, and he was right! Del is so patient. I’m not the quickest learner or the best dancer, but he’s very attuned to the strengths and weaknesses of his students…he doesn’t rush his students…and he’s very passionate about Salsa/Mambo. If you’re intimidated by the thought of privates, as I was, don’t be. He puts his students at ease. Every class is energy-filled and fun!
