Piel Canela Dance Company began as dream in October of 2001. With the idea to create a new type of dance company, one without any attitude, one where everyone was part of a big family and one where we would grow together as better dancers and above all as the best of friends. I could not have asked for a greater group of individuals to work with, it is their hard work and efforts that have made this dance company a great one!

The Teacher was perfect the thing is that the class wasn’t like a inicial reggaeton where you learn how to do some steps, it was like a normal class.

Great class with over 40 attendees during a snowy day. The instructor kept it simple and fun with a chance to socialize as we rotated from one partner to another.

Swing Level 1

Teacher was late, they made us fill up a form before class which if you don’t know about it it will take time out of your class, then we learned some steps and the teacher said that the class was wester swing, so I went all by with it, when it came the time to practice with some music, it was modern songs like the ones you hear on the radio now, the description was swing and I saw other types of swing on the website, my reason to go to this class even when the schedule wasn’t good for me, it was because describe it as swing, the traditional one. Two persons left the class very mad, I stay there and try to enjoy it as much as I could but, honestly I was very disappointed. I have to recognize that the teacher was very nice. But definitely I did swing before, 20 years ago and the level was ok for beginners but the music sucks!!!

This "class" was a complete waste of time and money. The scheduling staff and personnel at 500 8th Avenue were useless, to say the least. Weekly the location of the class changed and the front desk were not aware and didn't seem to care. The teacher was late one week and they had to change teachers and room midway. My son learned absolutely nothing. Never Again.

First class was cancelled without notice -- we arrived at the studio and no one there knew what was going on. We never went back, what a waste of time and energy!
