The “lourd of the dance” His teaching style and enthusiasm is such that you know his goal is truly for you to be the best dancer you can be. His group classes are clear, concise and fun! Under His guidance we have gone from novice dancers to ahem.. intermediate.. and that for us is an achievement. A teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth…. So much so that sometimes we changed his name to Rude Vijay…. He provides a thorough understanding of all aspects of dancing - body movement, the "feel" of the dance, and the overall theory of each step. He is incredibly knowledgeable and always explains why and how a step works. He has this amazing ability to know exactly what works to make you dance better than you ever thought you could--and best of all, you have GREAT FUN in the process! Spoilt with Lourd we are now and no other teacher will suffice ! Cant wait for the next set of dance lessons to begin!
