"It was by chance that I was introduced to The Salsa Center, but now I can't imagine my life without it. The highlight of my week is getting to dance in a class, a performance or at a Friday night party. Through dancing, I have been blessed to have met so many great people, who I now call my friends. Reena and Abel are not only great instructors, they are wonderful people and I appreciate what they are doing to create a sense of family in the dance community. They really have brought Latin dance to Lexington in a big way. Thank you Reena and Abel, Ken Parks"

"The salsa center has provided me with an opportunity to learn Cuban salsa and several other Latin dances. It has always been my desire to learn how to dance salsa and it feels great to be accomplishing that goal. I really enjoy the classes being taught by Reena and Abel. I know I am learning the authentic dances. The instructors at The Salsa Center make learning to dance so much fun. I also enjoy learning the history of the dances. Being able to have the practice parties on Friday night is an added benefit that I look forward to every week. I have learned a lot since I have started taking lessons and I have been able to progress to the next level and that is very exciting. I realize I still need to improve and grow in my dancing and I look forward to continuing that process at The Salsa Center."

"Thank you Reena and Abel for a superb job at The Salsa Center every day!! Each week, I can't wait for Friday so I can have my private lesson, take two more group classes (always something surprising and fun to learn!!) and finally practice new moves at the party. I was always a fan of Salsa and Merengue and didn't dance Bachata, Timba, or anything else. Now I am really enjoying dancing it all and it makes my Salsa more fun!! Again, thank you for challenging me and at the same time providing good support and guidance. I think both of you are super talented and add balance to each other. Reena, you are great at explaining the details behind the steps. Abel, you are awesome pointing out how to feel the music and how to follow. I love you guys!! I also have to say that I think we are lucky having so many great people as members. You have created a safe and easy place for adults to dance. Special thanks to Ryan, Kweku, Don and Salvador for being patient with me and helping me to improve my dances, especially Casino Rueda!! Can't wait for next week to DANCE, DANCE, DANCE and energize again for the next week!! My best, (E)Lena Masterson"

"My wife and I had a private lesson with The Salsa Center and had a great time. We used a gift certificate we received from my parents and the Salsa Center team was immediately responsive and worked out times for us to work with them. We received private lessons from the Salsa Center dance studio team at their studio. The studio is a cute place off Allendale Drive, and the inside is very comfortable with great sound and mirrors on one long wall so you can see what you are doing. The total instruction was 45 minutes and we spent almost all of the time dancing and not just watching. We started off with instruction and then started dancing to the music, and the instructor would let us keep going and give us pointers along the way, or pause to exemplify so we could really feel what should be occurring."

"I just wanted to take a moment to express my love and gratitude for The Salsa Center. Not only has it changed my life in a positive way, it has inspired me to pursue my passion for Salsa dancing. Reena and team Salsa Center teach with passion, enthusiasm, and have brought the Latin dances to a whole new level in the Lexington area. I am learning many of the Latin Dances such as Mambo, Son, Timba, Bachata, Merengue, Salsa Cubana, Lambada, Samba de Gafieira that I had no I idea I enjoyed as well. Once I saw Casino Rueda (salsa in a circle) for the first time, I knew immediately that I had to learn it. I started back in November of 2011 and I awake each day looking forward to learning more. I am thankful to be a part of this school of dance! Regards"
