  • 5 star review  Pasofino Dance is the best place in Atlanta to learn salsa! I’ve been taking private lessons with Jose, and he’s truly one of a kind. He is so passionate about dance, and he’s also a phenomenal teacher with great, skills, energy, and humor! You don’t only learn from the best— you also have a blast doing it!

  • 5 star review  Jose is a great teacher- super patient, knows how to convey concepts well and easy to follow. He teaches important fundamentals when first learning which is super helpful. I have attended Monday’s intro classes (salsa and bachata) and Thursdays partner work. Both classes were helpful, fun and engaging! Highly recommend 😊
