Fantastic teachers and amazing people! If you want to learn to dance, this is the place to do it! ❤️
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! 🙂
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.
Fantastic and extraordinary skilled and professional instructors. At the same time Erik and Consuela are personal and down-to-earth. They teach in such a clear and patient manner that ANYBODY can learn to dance salsa. Thank you both for being the lovely people that you are! 🙂
Amazing teachers! They make students embrace mistakes and have given me the confidence to continue getting better everyday. Come and check them out and you will see they are the best instructors in all of Texas!
Thank you E and C for a fantastic experience! Your dance classes are an incredible source of good energy 🙂 My plan was just to learn salsa but I went from never having danced before to winning 2nd place in the Norwegian Salsa Championship 18 months later!
