So yes, I believe that talent is overrated. I believe that dedication, efficient practice, and guidance from a knowledgeable instructor are far more important. It is this idea that shapes the way I teach. If you want to dance, you can dance. I'll make sure of that. Read more
Lorena turned two people with no dance experience into actual dancers!! Our wedding dance turned out to be incredible. ... If we didn't feel comfortable or couldn't get them right, she just changed them to meet our level. That's the beauty of working with Lorena - she understands what she need to teach you to make you (as a couple) look your very best. Her entire goal is to make you look like superstars on your big day. ...Original recommendation
... Working with her is a wonderful experience, and honestly, with all the stress of wedding planning, we looked forward to our practice sessions so much. It gave my husband and I a chance to connect and to be intimate in a whole new way.
Best of all, my husband and I still go out dancing. Lorena gave us a life-long gift and we are forever grateful!
Lorena is a fabulous teacher! Not only does she have a deep comprehension of the underlying mechanisms that fuel movement in dance, she teaches with poise, precision, and grace. She is patient and encouraging, and you can see and feel the difference in your dancing almost immediately. She really knows her stuff and genuinely invests in the development in her students! I studied with her for several years in group classes and then for a year in private lessons with her. She'll make you look great!Original recommendation
Lorena is an excellent dancer who has competes professionally! But she's really an amazing teacher because she can really perfectly tailor her level of instruction to the level that best suits you.Original recommendation
I learned most of my dancing from her from scratch. Beyond that, I got a huge benefit from a private lesson with her when I had only 6 months of experience, and I got an equally huge benefit from a private lesson with her when I had 2.5 years of experience. The more experienced dancers I know (5-6 years of experience) also keep coming back to her for her excellent instruction.
Lorena is a fantastic dancer and a wonderful ballroom teacher. She is incredibly patient, caring, and professional, and is excellent at breaking down challenging moves into simpler steps. Every lesson is enjoyable and moves at the perfect pace, allowing time for students to review the content of the last lesson before moving on to new material. I would highly recommend taking lessons with Lorena!Original recommendation
Lorena has been a competitive ballroom dancer for many years. She recently competed in the world championship at Blackpool. She's also coached the USC ballroom dance team for many years.Original recommendation
A fun, positive, and experienced teacher, Lorena is extremely qualified to teach beginners, intermediate, and highly skilled dancers. She is very encouraging and very adept at diagnosing trouble-spots. She also has a great knowledge and facility with choreography, and finding the right choreography to suit both the couple and the music.
I highly recommend her as a teacher and a coach! Happy dancing!
