Our vision is to provide our students with quality classes led by professional instructors, both in groups and individually, where we address the needs of each person based on their abilities and personal goals. This will enable our students to develop their rhythmic and body expression skills, allowing them to dance with confidence at social events. At the same time, our students will receive training in physical culture and health from highly competitive dancers. We aim to create a space where the passion for dance merges with health care, shaping complete and self-assured dancers. Thus, each of our students will not only grow as a dancer but also as an individual, carrying these skills and values into all aspects of their lives.

Awwww it’s the @razadancestudio band!!! I admire this group so much!!! First time I saw Susan in real life (not on IG) was on DBF!!! Then I found out she moved to Arkansas, brought her partner and opened a dance studio and I was like yasssss Arkansas!!! I’m jelly!!!!! I noticed they were on the LATBF itinerary and my mouth dropped open because I saw Yernan and his partner I was like you have to be shy I follow him on IG!!! You have to understand that for us who love traditional bachata social media is our motivator and teacher because it’s where we follow all of our favorite instructors since it’s not available in most dance communities!!!!! I was so inspired by this group that has come to the US from the Dominican Republic, opened their own business and are teaching us the amazing gift of bachata. @razadancestudio deserves all the accolades and I will always be supporting them from 1,000s of miles away or maybe 100s idk I’m not good with math and distance as I really love them and thank you for the amazing workshops, dances, and hugs!
