Dance Dojo Reviews
All of the reviews below are for our Salsa course. Once our Bachata course is near completion, we’ll open it up for reviews as well. If you have any questions about our courses, please contact us here!
I have been learning to dance salsa on 2 for the past 2 months. With everything shut down because of the Corona virus.I was unable to practice anymore. Then dance dojo offered a 2 week guest pass and I have to say that my mind is blown away. Patrick and Scarlett are great instructors and break down every single move down so that us students can learn. Lessons include shines, shine combos, partnerwork, tips. The best thing about it, you can learn at your own pace. I will definitely continue taking online classes with them. If you are determined to become a better dancer this is the best place to learn from. Stay safe everyone and big thank you to everyone at dance dojo.
I’ve just started Salsa classes about a month ago with Patrick and Scarlet, and got their online course from The Dance Dojo to supplement my learning. I love having the ability to review what I learnt in class, or preview what is coming up next. Their videos are just as fun and easy to follow as they are in person! The best part for me is learning the body movement and musicality of Salsa. These building blocks make all the steps and turns so much easier! If your looking for a way to learn Salsa from the ground up, or add to what you’re learning in your area, then I highly recommend this course!

I have had the amazing opportunity to be offered a FREE "2 Week Guest Pass" to the DANCEDOJO Salsa & Bacchatta Dance Video Lessons. I just finished my 1st week. I am incredibly impressed with the 5☆ Professional quality of the dance instruction, which I have received from taking Salsa Lessons with Patrick & Scarlet. Their attention to detail & step breakdown instruction is incredibly meticulous! I would completely recommend learning & taking their Salsa Video Dance Instruction from DanceDojo. All lessons are presented in a consistent & familiar manner. First- there is a short demonstration of the step. Second- the LEADER'S steps & lead instructions are presented. Third- the FOLLOWER'S steps & styling are shown. And Fourth- TIPS are given for common mistakes, problems, & issues with dancing the step. In between dance step segments, there are "Weekly Tips" videos from Patrick & Scarlet. Plus, there are videos detailing "PEAK LEARNING" information & how to achieve it in one's dancing. Each benchmark & module progression is clearly indicated at the top of the screen. Hopefully, I will be able to start learning Bachata in this short period of time. I am so grateful, DanceDojo offered this Guest Pass, while I am "Sheltering-In-Place" at home during the current situation in California. Thank you very much!
I am absolutely in love with Dance Dojo. It was one of my dreams to learn Salsa but I couldn't take classes due to my work schedule. This website is exactly what I was looking for. Everything is explained super clear and easy by professionals. The syllabus is comprehensive and the lessons are practical. Thank you guys for this amazing opportunity.
Love Dance Dojo! Nothing but good things to say. I take dance classes in person in my city but the lessons on Dance Dojo tighten up my skills and help me process what i have learned in class. Easy to understand. Funny and very detailed. Can't quit them!
I am dancing Salsa and Bachata since more than 20 years in many different places of the world. I was participating in big international dance congresses. Sometimes I had the opportunity to be in classes of the world´s best or most famous dancers. Every time I enjoy it a lot and I learned new different steps or styles. Unfortunately I can only memorize a small part of it and shortly later I have forgotten the majority of it. As common practice I take videos of lessons but also that does not help too much.
The structured lessons and the way how you are showing and explaining the different aspects of learning, training, technique, style, musicality etc.is really the completest dance course and quite different to anything what I have seen so far.
Congrats! Keep it up!!
So far I have been following the Dance dojo salsa course and it’s been amazing! The instructors are very precise in their teaching and breaks down the moves for footwork, styling and body movements very well. I have followed online courses before and have either been bored by them or lost interest. I’m so excited to click on next lesson each time here on the dance dojo. I’m enjoying all the tips as well 😊
Highly recommended for Begginer’s as well for advanced dancers that want yo perfect their dancing.
My experience has been great. This is a very complete course. I have taken many private and group classes and believe that the clear instruction in Dance Dojo is of great quality, with the added advantage that you can access it anytime.
No regrets buying this course!
- All partner work and shines have breakdowns in On1 and On2
- Material is arranged logically. You can pick to learn moves that are easier or harder, depending on your needs.
- Lessons on mindsets help you continue on your dance journey
- Body movement lessons that will take your dancing to a new level
- It's a complete course which includes lessons on musicality, footwork
I take advanced beginner salsa lessons at a studio and because it is a group setting, I find that I don’t get the individual attention I need. Also, I find that I need more than a 1 hour class to understand steps/movements. This is where the Dance Dojo salsa lessons fill the void that I need to progress. I love how I can take my time and replay the videos until I start to “get” it. The thorough breakdowns at Dance Dojo are more comprehensive than what can be taught in group lessons. All in all, Dance Dojo is a wonderful addition to formal salsa lessons. I highly recommend it if you are fairly new at salsa and need a resource to complement your formal lessons that you can do in the privacy of your own home.
Have been taking beginner salsa group classes before Corona for 2.5 months and was worried I would forget everything I had learned. This course has not only helped me to refresh what I had learned, but to take my level further and now I have a grear resource with a clear roadmap to keep improving. I´m my opinion the best would be to combine this with presential group classes and that´s what I´m planning to do when things go back to normality. In the meantime I´m thrilled to have this course to keep learning and have fun doing so!
I´ve been dancing different styles for over 20 years, so I think I can tell when I am taken through the learning process effectively and I must say that I really like this course. The way every step and every small detail is explained + well thought over curriculum! To learn the most important in the right order, so you can build your dancing skills up the most effective way + not going just through the steps vaguely and fast, but learning it precisely, in a quality way. I really enjoy the course.
My fiancé and I have been taking salsa lessons for over a year now and the biggest difference I have seen is the organization and progression of Dance Dojo’s classes. I can also learn more than 1 dance move in less time that it takes me to learn 1 with a live class. I definitely recommend Dance Dojo to anyone interested in learning to dance salsa.
The salsa course offered by Dance Dojo is amazing! The course is very well organized, starting first with fundamentals and then building on those fundamentals. People from any dance level can benefit as you can skip to the level appropriate for you. You can also go back to repeat a section you have already completed if needed. Patrick and Scarlet are wonderful teachers in that they explain each step thoroughly with a lot of detail about body, arm and hand placement/movement, footwork, timing, lead and follow dynamics, etc. I love the tips that they give based on their experience as teachers, and their chemistry together is fantastic! This salsa course is definitely worth it!
Throughout 40 years of dancing I’ve taken countless group lessons, private lessons, and watched hundreds of videos. This is some of the best instruction I’ve seen, and it’s probably the best value of all the instruction I’ve taken. It’s oriented towards social dancing with a variety of partners, rather than exhibition dancing. The moves are do-able with pretty much anybody, rather than a “secret” pattern that works only with somebody who took a course with you. The technique sections give you what you need to lead and follow smoothly and gently. There’s a huge number of patterns. The program gives you a logical sequence that would be extremely helpful for a beginner. The instruction is straight forward and easy-to-follow. My only complaint would be that a few of the steps labeled as “experienced beginner” are really for intermediate or advanced dancers. By the way, my favorite two lessons that should be viewed by every leader of any experience level are “Becoming a Smoother Salsa Lead (Less is More!), and “Adjusting your Salsa Lead for Beginner Partners”. This is a great course. I took the first two weeks for free and I’m ready to sign up for ever.
Amazing program, Patrick and Scarlet are the best, my wife and I have been learning and practicing to dance salsa in the last 4 weeks, I can only say this online course is excellent. We can review the videos over and over as we need at our convenience. Great investment. Thanks Patrick and Scarlet.
I loved this course! It’s comprehensive and touches on everything I need to be a better dancer: mindset, framework, technique, new moves. I especially enjoyed the Salsa Shines portion. I started this course when social dancing was first prohibited due to social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak. I live alone and was looking for ways to practice dancing solo. This course was perfect. There are so many instructional videos on Salsa Shines and they are fantastic. I highly recommend this course.
I found the Dance Dojo initially on YouTube and thought their videos were clear and concise and easy to follow. Their online course is really comprehensive and in an easy step by step format. I'm currently working my way through the intermediate level content and it's really helping me build my repertoire. I actually find that i use a lot of what i'm learning from these guys which should be proof enough that their content is formatted in a way that helps you actually integrate what you've learned online, theory to practice - which is what every budding dancer wants. Thanks guys!
Absolutely brilliant, thank you Robin. We project the lesson onto the wall in the dining room so we have full size instructors right next to us. This is the best most concise instruction I have seen. Thank you Patrick and Scarlet.
Simply the best online course on the net. Nice detailed explanations on all aspects of salsa, including body movement, musicality etc...Complicated combos are split into simple moves to learn and practice easily!
The way you explain. The way you do your moves is extraordinary. I have been in lockdown for a week now and I can actually feel the difference in my dance despite the fact that am doing it solo. Keep up the great work guys. I have shared it with my friends and they love it. Lots of love.
An Investment to your dancing success is waiting for you,within this product all the detailed breakdown of what you want and need to know,are not overlooked.when you invest in this product you get what you're looking for.
I really felt in love with your video library, its so clear and easy to watch and learn. After trial period will definitely consider buying it.

Patrick & Scarlet's salsa videos are fantastic! Very detailed explanation for both the lead and follow, more importantly, the techniques aspect. I wouldn't hesitate to give them a shot.
If you are looking to have fun while learning . Robin and the dance Dojo team have really put together a comprehensible and fun way of learning . The video's are on point and easy to follow. From the beginner to the slightly advancedanyone will benefit !!!!!
