"Carolyn is an exceptional instructor. She is a professional dancer that loves teaching salsa. This manifest itself in her energetic attitude and her attention to her students. She tailors her classes to the level of the students. She always focuses on proper technique. During rotations she gives feedback to individual students and increases the challenge for more advanced students."

"I’ve been dancing with Carolyn both privately and in her Salsa classes at Dance Vita for almost a year now. I had never danced Salsa before and thanks to Carolyn and her classes I absolutely LOVE Salsa. All of her students adore her and we are all learning so much! I have recommended Carolyn’s classes along with her private instruction numerous times to friends and we all agree, Carolyn is terrific!"

"Me and my (now wife) used Carolyn to help us out with our first dance. Carolyn was extremely helpful and was able to choreograph a dance that met our skill levels. She also added some twists that looked great, and impressed our guests. Overall, we were extremely happy with the services, and highly recommend using Carolyn in the future!"

"I took Carolyn’s salsa and ballroom lessons for 2 years. They are just great. The way how Carolyn explains a structure of a dance is highly analytical and she always goes into fundamentals if you are willing to follow her. She always encourage you to improve a foundation you have, connection you establish with a partner and other principle things rather than to learn and forget in a week some fancy pattern. That doesn’t mean, that you don’t find fancy patterns at her lessons though, you do. But she is a true teacher and know where is a right emphasis should be. She answers a question behind a question, always generously gives you more than you asked and brings the best from her experience to you."

"I am not a dancer whatsoever, but took lessons because my spouse wanted me to. Carolyn made it easy and enjoyable."
