  • review rating 5  I tried learning salsa on and off for years and made very little progress to be able to dance socially. Salsa music sound like noise, and whatever I learn in class don’t stick. Until I met Sanushka; he broke the art down to a science for my analytical brain. The rest is history, I’m now a salsa social dancing superstar; and the girls can’t get enough of me. Just kidding LOL. Still a beginner but with new found enthusiasm to improve.

    review rating 5  I found out about Secret Garden of Dance through word of mouth and I'm so glad I found out about them! We had them teach us our first dance and it turned out incredible. Caroline was amazing throughout the whole process. Both my partner and I had no dancing experience so we were dreading to learn out first dance. Caroline helped us feel comfortable and was so encouraging and motivating. Her experience and passion really shows when she is teaching. Dancing quickly became one of the most enjoyable parts of the wedding process for us and we thoroughly enjoyed every lesson. We were so amazed that we pulled off our first dance in only a few lessons, coming from people who had no dancing experience. Our first dance turned out amazing and we got so many compliments, a big thank you to Caroline and The Secret Garden of Dance! 🙂

    review rating 5  We first found out about The Secret Garden of Dance through my sister who had registered us for a trial class ahead of our wedding. My husband and I both enjoy dancing socially, but had not had previous experience with learning a choreographed routine. Caroline made us feel welcome and took the time out to get to know us as a couple and thoughtfully crafted a routine for us which we will think back on fondly for years to come. Caroline was patient, professional, articulate and very concise with how she taught us. Instead of rushing into learning the full choreography, she iterated the importance of nailing the basics first and spent time with us till we got it right. Going to classes every week for the 6 weeks in the lead up to our wedding, was something we both eagerly anticipated, and helped us not only learn a new skill, but helped us grow closer together as a couple. Everyone loved our first dance and were totally taken by surprise by our moves! Thank you Caroline - you helped make our wedding feel extra special and unforgettable for us xxx

  • review rating 5  When I first started taking classes at The Secret Garden of Dance I had already been dancing for about two years. But taking classes with Sanushka marked such a turning point in my dancing journey. Sanushka is not only a great dancer, he is also an amazing teacher. He found completely new ways to fix some of my issues and gave me invaluable feedback, which really allowed me to take my dancing to the next level. Beyond his teaching methodology, I also really enjoyed how much I learned about the history and culture of each dance. As someone who loves history, I always leave the classes feeling intellectually stimulated and with a deep sense of respect for these amazing cultures! Looking forward to continuing learning there! Highly recommend it to anyone 🙂

    review rating 5  My new hubby & I can’t recommend the team at The Secret Garden of Dance highly enough! The studio is a hidden gem and a pleasure to learn in. Over 2 months, Caroline took us from complete beginners to confident, enthusiastic performers for our first dance on our wedding night. We couldn’t have asked for a more patient, committed teacher. From the very first meeting, where Caroline took the time to get to know us and our somewhat alternative vision for our dance, to developing an awesome choreography that blew our friends and family away, the wedding dance was a clear highlight and an unforgettable element of the whole day. We are SO glad we decided to take lessons, and put in the hours of practice, and we are grateful for the contributions of the whole team, who took the time to watch us rehearse and share their tips to elevate our performance. Can’t wait to return to the studio to take more classes! Couples looking to learn a wedding dance, look no further 😊

    review rating 5  The instructors here are very passionate about the style they teach. It feels like they want to train people to be good dancers and take the artform forward, rather than just running a dance school. A good student-teacher ratio and modest fee structure made this studio my favourite among many others that I have already attended in the area.

    review rating 5  Fantastic teachers! I and my partner had our wedding dance lessons with Sanushka. We had no dance experience and he taught us step by step and explained very well. We are so glad that we had lessons with him and I want to thank him so much.
