Marcelo’s Bootcamp was awesome!! his enthusiasm is contagious. Loved the warm up, and professional training program, which were thorough and intensive, My husband and I also liked that Marcelo provided us with detailed information and tips on bachata fundamentals that nobody has ever taught us. His team of other instructors such as Kiana and Krista were brilliant and helpful. We definitely recommend this bachata bootcamp to anyone who wants to get a sound foundation to improve his dancing skills.

Bachata bootcamp is the perfect blend of energy, joy, and community - all engendered by the well-oiled machine that is the staff. The day runs seamlessly from solo to group work, and even includes a friendly competition to boast newfound skills. This is a wonderful way to spend a weekend.

No! If you bring a partner, fantastic. If you don’t bring a partner, fantastic.

The class operates a partner rotation system, which means you get to practice with a new partner every few minutes and meet new friends.

If you have a partner and you do not wish to rotate, you can remain together exclusively for the entire class.

If you know the basic steps and turns of Bachata, you can try starting with Level 2. If you are unsure and want a solid foundation, we recommend starting with Level 1.

If you are unsure between Level 2 and Level 3, we recommend starting with Level 2.

It is not uncommon for some people to take 2 levels on the same day while they transition from one level to the next.

Wear something comfortable and easy to move in.

First timers, preferably no heels as it’s harder to learn. Once you learn the fundamentals, then switch to heels. Otherwise, wear something comfortable that doesn’t have too much grip.

Preferably no black souls that will heavily mark the dance floor.

No problem! However, due to limited space per class, we ask for a full 24 hour notice in order to reschedule your class without losing the credit. This allows us sufficient time to open it to another student. Please contact us via the email or phone number in your confirmation email.

No problem! Please contact us via the email or phone number in your confirmation email and we’ll be happy to adjust your ticket.

Please reply to your confirmation email requesting information for a 2nd ticket. The 2nd ticket will be regular price, which is $20 for a one time drop-in.

I came to Marcelo’s first class literally knowing NOTHING; with his step by step guidance and the one-on-one help from the other instructors, I was able to ramp up super quickly.
