I was there for a week, but couldn't attend class every day, so I appreciated the fact the they adjusted the fee to accommodate accordingly. Both of my instructors - Alester and Chuy - were very imaginative with their instructional techniques. They are really nice guys, as well. I met another instructor outside of the classroom - Dora - and... More

I did private lessons with the school - my plan was actually to follow a beginners' class for two weeks, but things changed and the dates crashed with my plans. The staff were really flexible and took it all in their stride. I got excellent service from everyone here, mi maestra - Aletta - was very good with me, too!... More

I arrived on Sun; checked in the residence (where it has a staff member 24-7 at the front desk). Both the residence and the school are centrally located to the infamous 5th... More

The rooms were very basic. The twin beds had one sheet, one pillow, and a throw. My room had a desk but no chair. They provide you with one towel and one roll of toilet paper for the week. They wash the sheets and towel once a week and you cannot use the washing machines there. You're expected to tip... More
