We killed our dance last night!!! Faultless, I killed the free styling and everyone loved the rose in the mouth. Gem nailed the end and did a fabulous job in her heels. We had such a great night…….
Thank you for all you help with the dance. We really enjoyed it, we are going to miss you and our classes, and think you a fabulous teacher with a patience of a saint.
We’ll be sure to recommend you to anyone in the future. Thanks again

Emilio is an excellent teacher.  He has so much talent and patience, and a great sense of humour too.  Neither of us had much experience dance wise, but Emilio instantly made us feel comfortable and was able to break-down the steps and start with the basics.  Over a series of lessons we gradually improved and built up a routine to the song “Love is all around”.  We had turns, dips, lifts and all sorts of other moves.  My husband and I were always amazed at Emilio’s ability to choreograph and time all the moves so perfectly with the music.

The wedding dance was a huge hit with all our family and friends at the wedding.  Not only was it a highlight of the reception but it was a great activity for my husband and I to enjoy together in the sometimes stressful lead-up to our wedding.

We had a wonderful experience learning to dance with Emilio and would highly recommend him to any couple!

Thank you Emilio!!!

Thanks for finding evening times for us, it really made it easier for us to come along!

A big thank you to Emilio for your fabulous dance classes and tuition in getting my fiance’
and I ready for our wedding dance! Emilio’s dance tuition (beginners salsa & private classes) were invaluable
in preparing for our special day. The wedding dance was a success, the crowd of friends and family absolutely loved it,
we got big cheers and wolf whistles!
For bride and groom wanting to add that special something to their wedding day, I highly recommend dance classes with
Emilio / Ela Rose.
