What other students and clients think of our classes

If I could give Maria (the person overseeing the company) zero stars, I would. I emailed to inquire about a class & mentioned that I was pregnant. This was her response. "After 3 months you are settle but if your belly is big: I will advise to wait for health and safety." I asked for clarification: "Do you mean it is okay to attend Bachata after 3 months. And if your belly is big. What is considered big? And when you say wait for health and safety, do you mean until after giving birth?". Maria's response was "Please ask your doctor for advise. ".This is the laziest, rudest and most ignorant response I have ever received to an inquiry. Firstly, who tells a pregnant woman they can participate after 3 months but only if their belly isn't big? Do you turn obese people away or tell them that they can't participate if they are too obese? Secondly, pregnancy is not a health condition that needs to be managed unless you are a high risk pregnancy. Can you imagine an employer saying that you can't work because you're pregnant - it's a health and safety issue? Pregnant women work, they can exercise (both the NHS and GP encourage at least 3 hours of moderate exercise per week in pregnancy which can include jogging, yoga, cycling, dancing etc). The only time exercise would ever be discouraged is if you're a high risk pregnancy which I am not - I wouldn't be inquiring if I was.Avoid Maria's company and ill management practises like the plague. She has no business running a business as the face of that business when her customer skills are non-existent and her communication is that of teenager going through puberty - lazy and moody. I am so grateful that I never had to part with my money to experience Maria's unprofessional ways.

Dear Salsa Tropical, There is a difference between being professional and being curt. The concept of customer service seems to be missing from your staff. This was my first impression and unfortunately it did not change during my 4 sessions with them. I wouldn't go there again!Where do i begin with this school? I took a taster class and decided to join the following week. I tried to avail my discount but they wouldn't let me. The receptionists were cold and wouldn't hear what i was asking or telling them but were only interested in charging me full amount. i gave up and paid up the full fees since my friends were already there.I began with the beginners class, which was very basic and after two classes i was ready to move to the improvers. The teachers highly discouraged me, to the point that i was told off when i was waiting to begin my improvers class. The teachers were extra observant of my steps. This made me very conscious about the class and was very put off.Another thing that happened was, i was admitted to 4 sessions but my friend who signed up with me was admitted only to 3 and her sessions were done. Rather strange. She was offered no explanation, the person attending her was only eager for us to either pay and get another set of sessions or leave. Again, is there any customer service?I still give Salsa Tropical 1 star purely because of the crowd, i met some nice people and they made the experience fun.Join at your own risk!

This dance class is very "industrial", with Maria trying to cram as many people into a class as possible, to maximize her profits.As someone clueless about dancing, I paid for four lessons in advance, to see how well I'd get on with the teachers, and I'm very glad I didn't buy more:1) The class consisted of 7 guys and 2 girls, so half the time I ended up dancing on my own with an imaginary partner (I could do that at home for free)2) Reception staff seem poorly trained and ill informed. When I complained to Maria about incorrect information they'd given me, she simply dismissed the complaint with: "Oh, they're too busy updating the database to spend time explaining things"3) My four hour pass mysteriously became a three hour pass, I suspect they charged me for the so-called free lesson, but the reception staff who had told me the week before that I had two hours remaining, told me the following week that there was zero hours remaining, and then Maria kept insisting that I should be another package.In summary, it's been an awful experience, and put me off learning salsa... If you're thinking of learning, this is one place to definately avoid.

A great choice for anyone wanting to start cross body Salsa, improve as a dancer, make friends! I have been taking classes with SalsaTropical for about 1 year.Classes take place in the LSE student’s union, about a 10 minute walk from Holborn/Temple tube stations.The dance space is a large airy room, with lots of light and a great dance floor.Classes are held twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays. A typical class will have 15 students and at least 2 instructors ( a leader and a follower). There is a strong emphasis on good technique, and frame. The instructors will have a pre-planned lesson, and over 1 hour everyone will complete a short routine. The instructors demonstrate the moves, but also walk around the class giving individual feedback. During the class you will change partners regularly, but also dance with the instructors, which helps build your understanding of leading, following, timing, signalling etc.Overall there will be about 50 -60 students, split into, 3 levels: beginners, improvers, and intermediate. There are lot of 'regulars', who come every week, and progress together.The students and instructors are a friendly, diverse group of people, so any new joiner will find it easy to fit in and enjoy a class.There are classes from 7-9pm, and you can combine different levels as you progress e.g. two beginner classes, a beginner and improver class, an improver and an intermediate class.The dance floor is open from 9-10pm, there is a friendly vibe, with students from different levels dancing together, along with the instructors. It is a great way to build up your ‘Salsa confidence'.Besides the weekly classes there are regular weekend workshops, and socials organised by Salsa Tropical , plus there are ad-hoc meet-ups to go to different Salsa events in London.

Maria is an excellent passionate global dance teacher who I have had classes with for approx 6 months! I had ZERO dance experience. We started partner work early and I felt really comfortable partner dancing with her and she never made me feel bad if I didn't know what move to do next for example! At the same time I knew she expected me to know my moves. Every class was FUN because Maria is easy to talk to and fun to dance with and I looked forward to all of them. I learnt the footwork and different steps and in each class she added something extra or something extra to a move we had already done. I went to Colombia and all the individual steps I had already done with Maria so job done! Maria is very professional, always on time, has good accommodation to work from, and is a fun dance teacher who is passionate about what she does and I feel connects well with her clients. The dancing wasn't "scientific" as a large part of dancing is feeling, timing etc. Choose Maria if you don't want to dance like a robot!

I attended the bachata lesson last Tuesday and i was pleasantly surprised at how much FUN i had. As a beginner i was quite nervous however the staff and instructors were extremely inviting and i ended up having a fantastic time. I will most definitely be joining the Tuesday class regularly. 10/10 would recommend

On behalf of Hotelcare we thank you very much for a wonderful night. i will definitely be booking Salsa Tropical in the near future. Thank you guys

It was real pleasure to attend 3 months salsa class. Maria is very nice lady and friendly teacher. She really cares about you. Mike Anthony is really a Salsa Master. In 3 months nothing has been repeated. They were very generous in terms of new stuff. They left their signatures on my salsa dancing. I am really appreciated for their efforts and friendly manners. A recommendable Salsa Spot in London.

Salsa Tropical is definitely a 5-Star Salsa school. They're really focussed on technique rather just on fancy moves. When the technique is right, you definitely look good on the dance floor! Highly recommended for serious Salsa students.

Hey Dance Lovers! i would like to grab the opportunity here to tell you about my experience I gained @ Salsa Tropical in the past couple of months ! I am a competitive Latin / Ballroom dancer, with couple of years experience so I have a good insight into dancing and I must say if you are into learning Salsa then look no further! Maria is a great, lovely, professional, bubbly Dance Instructor with plenty of years behind her back and is dedicated and passionate about people and dancing! I am proud to be part of the teacher team as well now as a newbie teacher which is hell lot of fun! Both the Teacher Training and the Group classes are so much fun, laughter, happiness with great vibe and people and of course Salsa steps and techniques taught by highly experienced instructors like Maria!I could write plenty of pages how great Salsa Tropical is but you have to experience it yourself, I promise you won't regret it : ) Classes running on wednesdays, fridays and saturdays you have plenty of options! Don't hesitate, just do it!!! : )See you in class,Adam
