"I came into this thinking, I would just take a basic class and take my moves to the dance floor. Once I got that first lesson, I was hooked and now I can't put it down. Cassandra is an excellent teacher with yrs of experience. Her technical teaching has helped me understand the difference in why a move is made. Her patience has helped my confidence on the dance floor and I have come to appreciate her teaching style. I am work in progress and did not give a rating of five because Cassandra told me that you never stop learning and improving in dance and while I am still perfecting my skills she will always have work to do..."

"I started going to Salsa lessons but had been looking for someone to teach/choregraph our wedding dance. Cassandra was awesome in both of these desires. She accomodated our schedules. She created our Rumba wedding dance routine and was always encouragng, optomistic and saw the positive in our every efforts. We realized how far we had developed in our technique and the applause we got on our wedding day solidified our belief. She kept re-inforcing "our moment" during our first dance and I couldn't be prouder of my husband for being a great trooper through it all. Altough time was short in learning the whole dance, we learned enough to create our own ending and WOWedthe crowd while having fun.
We embarked on our honeymoon cruise but not before I e-mailed her to say not only did we do the dance-we did it exceptionally well.
My husband's schedule did not allow him to attend Salsa lessons with me but Cassandra doesn't make that interfere with the lessons-I learned so much during my class and it was a delight to meet so many nice people....I'd recommend her to anyone who want to just learn for exercise pupose or for a special event.

"I have been doing Latin dance for about 3 months now and have taken classes from instructors all around charlotte. I must say though that cassandra is my personal favorite. With her warm personality, contagious smile, and unihibited energy she lights up the room wherever she goes. I started out with two left feet but after two short months of salsa, bachata, and cha cha classes Its safe to say I am confident on the dance floor, and never do I worry about looking foolish. Cassandra is without a doubt the best at what she does."

"I absolutely love working with Cassandra. She's patient, fun, exciting, and very sincere. The vibe she brings to her passion is incredible and I recommend anyone that think they want to learn to dance meet her first. Once the hour is up, you will know you wan to dance!!!! I am extremely pleased to have met Cassandra and every chance I get I praise her for many reason. This woman is remarkable and I'm very thankful I was blessed with the opportunity to have met her.... Keep it up Cassandra!!!!"

"Cassandra is warm, encouraging, talented, and makes each lesson FUN! She really puts the time in to make you feel comfortable. She not only teaches you the steps, but also explains why you are doing certain movements in a way that makes the whole process that much easier - and more enjoyable! Her passion for dance and teaching is infectious; you will not only learn how to dance like a true pro but also have a great time doing it!"

"Cassandra is awesome, awesome, AWESOME!
I’ve been attending Cassandra’s classes since the beginning of the year, and I look forward to each and every one. She is one of the most engaging and passionate teachers I've ever met, and is genuinely interested in the growth and development of her students. If you haven't danced much, that's not a problem, if you love to dance...all the better! Cassandra can tailor her lessons to accommodate any skill-level. She breaks down the steps so it’s easy to learn the basics, but most importantly, she teaches you to have fun and to “own” the steps so you feel confident on the dance floor. Her attention to the subtler movements and nuances of each dance really help to transform her students into great dancers!"

"I love Cassandra's classes in so many ways that I'm sure I'll leave something out, but here are the reasons that come to mind immediately:
1) My husband and I spent several hundred dollars on a "Ballroom introductory package" at an unnamed Charlotte studio in 2009. The instructors were good, but the environment was so formal that it was hard to actually enjoy myself, and I quickly lost interest for that reason. NOT so with Cassandra and her classes. She keeps it casual, fun, and she has seemingly endless patience with those of us who are struggling with new steps.
2) Confession: I'm not a fan of exercise (especially cardio), but I love her classes. Who knew exercise and fun could occur simultaneously?! I'm not a ZX Fitness member, but if I ever decide to join a gym, it'll be ZX. The staff is great and they treat us wonderfully, regardless of our membership status.
3) I've met some truly wonderful people because of her classes.
3) Even my 17-year old daughter has developed an interest in Latin ballroom dancing since meeting Cassandra, and the classes are affordable enough that we can actually go on a regular basis. Admission- $5 per person; Wardrobe- $? (just dress comfortably); Quality time with your loved ones? Priceless.
