Wendy was a sensational teacher and we loved the hours spent with her on the terrace in Vedado! She takes time to go through the steps and make you comfortable with them. She is so nice, speaks and writes excellent English and she is well informed about salsa in Cuba. Loved to learn a bit about the history of salsa while sipping a delicious mojito. I cannot thank her enough. We had a wonderful afternoon and look forward to spending more time with her in the future if able to return soon to Havana.
