Desi's long list of credits speak for themselves: Dancing with the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance print campaign, toured with Gloria Estefan, Toni Braxton's Revealed Show, Alicia Keys, guest instructor on Dr. Phil w/Paula Abdul, Spike TV's Scream Awards, Kids Choice Awards w/The Rock, SNL w/Katie Holmes, West Side Story, A Chorus Line, assistant choreographer for Spice Girl's reunion Tour, associate choreographer for Bravo's Step it up and Dance, just to mention a few. Because of Desi's wide range of dance and acting background, he has been labeled as an innovator of the new style of salsa. He has developed a salsa fusion combining Salsa, Hip Hop, Jazz, Musical Theatre, and Afro-cuban. His salsa company, Angeleno Funk, is changing the world of salsa and bringing it into the new decade. During his classes, he will take you through salsa shines (footwork without a partner), turn patterns, he'll show guys how to lead and girls how to follow. He will have you at the club tearing up the dance floor in no time.
Ana L. gave this class 5 out of 5 CourseHorse stars.
The class was amazing. It wasn't too big so it was easy to feel comfortable around everyone. The instructor taught well - I went in with literally no experience and picked up on everything (and I've never taken a dance course before so I'm not a natural trust me). The studio was very friendly and welcoming, all of them introducing me to themselves when I got there. 10/10 recommend. Definitely going back.
