  • 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 had Sanushka and Caroline from Danzar Latino visit us during their QLD holiday to facilitate some group and private classes. Everybody was so impressed with their professionalism, their knowledge, their tailored teaching style and joy that they shared whilst here. Our crew wish to continue with online classes until we can next have them return to QLD. Massive gratitude and respect for your dance art. #therealestatedancer

    review rating 5  Sanushka is our dance guru! I knew the moment that I met him that Sanushka was a gifted teacher who skillfully knows how to get the best from his students. He puts you at ease immediately and is able to hone in to the exact detail that will make all the difference. He runs his studio with integrity and only employs and trains only the best teachers. I have been to many dance studios in Melbourne and The Secret Garden stands out. It is a welcoming space and a comfortable size that prevents the classes from ever being too large. I always feel welcome when I visit. Thanks Sanushka and Caroline for being such amazing mentors and supporters of Shepparton Salsa and bringing your talent to Shepparton, and jumping on board with all of my ideas!

    review rating 5  I'm a huge fan of social partnered dance. I've attended many dance schools over the years but this is the one school that I have intentionally travelled interstate visiting to improve the knowledge, connection and joy in my dance. More recently. with the outbreak of COVID, I have been able to take my lessons online and my achievements with them have exceeded my goals. The unique aspect of this school is that they tailor their approach to suit your individual learning style. I'm also a huge fan of the wedding dances that this school co-creates and enjoy seeing the success and joy online whenever they are published on social media.

  • 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  Over the past four or five years, I've attended many workshops hosted by Sanushka and his professional team of instructors. Every single time I've come away as a better dancer. He's given me new ways of moving to and thinking about the music. Sadly, I live too far away for weekly lessons because they'd certainly be worth it. If you're serious about being a better dancer, then The Secret Garden of Dance is for you.

    review rating 5  I can't speak highly enough of Sanu, Caroline, and the whole team at TSGoD. They've come up to Shepparton a few times now and run workshops for us and we always get so much out of them! They're so passionate about their dance and manage to hit the difficult balance between striving for excellence and having fun. Love it!
