well as the more complex moves and makes them understandable and easy to
remember for both beginners and more advanced dancers alike.

music for a short while. Then she works on the basic step with music for part of the class
until she moves on and teaches partner work. She gives woman's and men's styling tips from the
beginning so you don't have to learn what not to do later on.
Her intermediate class is fun and well paced. She has the ability to break down a
complex turn into a series of interconnected parts that flow into each other. These parts
can be used as a whole turn combination or as individual parts to create endless combinations.
Claudine also teaches a mambo styling class. The class concentrates on the accents
and interjections that make a person look good while dancing.

and gives styling tips for both. Anyone can benefit from her instruction.
