Student Testimonials

I tried other Salsa schools in New York but Baila Society is my favorite.  As soon as I stepped through the door they made me feel comfortable and went out of their way to make sure I was learning at my own pace.

Raymond M., Beginner student

I’ve been dancing Salsa for years now and was blown away with how much more I had to learn.  Ahtoy is such an amazing dancer but more importantly, she’s such an amazing teacher! Her ability to explain details behind Salsa movement keeps me coming back for more.

Lydia V., Advanced student

My partnerwork has been taking to another level after taking class at BAILA Society.  I love how they stress technique while still emphasizing the importance of feeling the music.  I can’t tell you how many partners have complimented me on my new found leading ability after taking classes at BASo.

Steven P., Intermediate student
