When I went to Kai & Rodolfo, I was struggling with dancing salsa for quite a while. I had this feeling that I would… really enjoy dancing – if only I understood how to learn it… I couldn’t follow instructions during the group classes, so I had to rely mostly on feedback from partners to learn the dance routines. I also had almost no motivation to go to parties and practice – I was bored of going through the same basic moves all over again.Thinking back at the last couple of months of taking salsa classes in private with them, I really admire how they organized the learning process. Every new lesson changed the way I was dancing. I’d leave the class excited to go to parties, to practice a new technique, and explore uncharted territories. It’s been a hell of a ride – I didn’t expect to grow so fast. And the coolest bit is that the techniques and feedback that I received from them in the very first lessons, are still coming back to me, and they are even more useful now that I’ve become a lot more confident and proficient in dancing. I can’t wait to learn more from them.Last but not least, Rodolfo & Kai are very good at understanding what I need to work on next, they are kind and motivating, and their ability to adapt teaching method to what I need is truly inspiring. It’s really an honor to learn from you ! Thanks a lot !read more

As Salsa teachers Rodolfo and Kai work together seamlessly, and they clearly enjoy what they are doing. They share a… robust mix of experience and enthusiasm. It works for me that in their classes I spend most of the time dancing, as I personally don’t learn so much from just watching or listening for too long.They are sharp observers, but I like it that they will not interrupt me with overwhelming criticism. They give the right guidance at the right time, and it feels uplifting. I like their articulate and clear voices, and their words are precise and to the point. They are also good listeners and they gladly answer any questions.The classes flow spontaneously, with a good rhythm and a happy, relaxed feeling. One hour is like ten minutes and the end comes unexpectedly. I used to have a similar shock when I lived with my parents and my mother used to say: -“Stop playing and go to bed! You have to get up early in the morning”. Most importantly, my Salsa dancing is steadily improving and it is becoming more and more fun.read more

We approached Rodolfo quite late -only six weeks before our wedding- with the question if he could help us with our… first dance. The timeline was short, but Rodolfo was very flexible in planning weekly private lessons with us and gave us the confidence that we would be able to make it on time. And we did! Rodolfo helped us with selecting a song, tweaking length and pace, and creating an awesome choreography of almost 2 minutes. He managed to learn us in a structured manner in 5 lessons of 2 hours. We did steal the show on our wedding, with many many compliments afterwards! We can really recommend working with Rodolfo if you are looking for an never-to-forget first dance on your wedding ?.
