Ariel Garcia

I have been training different forms of martial arts almost my entire life. Erik and Consuelo are the best instructors I have ever seen. They have incredible ability to make themselves understood by anybody, at the same time creating a fun and playful "atmosphere" that turns the whole learning process into pure fun! 🙂

Erick Joergensen

Both my husband and I fell in love with their teaching techniques, style, and teamwork. Their humor and interaction creates a lighthearted atmosphere, which makes everyone feel comfortable immediately!! They bring both experience and teaching skills to the table. We recommend Impulso Dance Academy to anyone looking to expand their dance abilities.
