What Others Are Saying

  • I have been interested in ballroom dancing for a long time. I did not get a comfortable start, so all attempt was short lived. A year and half ago, I started private lesson with Hector Quiles. Hector is a wonderful teacher and dancer. He is also an up to date competitor and performer. Dancing with him is both fun and challenging. Hector is very articulate with his instruction. I am a professional musician and teacher. I truly appreciate great teaching as I know how great teaching can transform students. I am now comfortable in social dancing environment. And I am looking forward to my lesson every week 🙂

  • I’ve had the privilege of dancing with Hector Quiles for about five years and I simply can’t say enough positive things about him. I couldn’t have asked for a more talented, enthusiastic and generous instructor! I’m impressed that while Hector is an amazingly skilled professional dancer, he is extremely down-to-earth, practical, patient and kind with students of all levels of experience, yet he insists on certain standards that make him a superior teacher. Hector is very easy to communicate with and has a great sense of humor (he’s hilarious AND adorable!!) making each lesson fun and interesting. He is, also, extremely insightful and possesses the innate ability to pinpoint exactly what you need to work on in order to improve as he motivates you to shine!

    Since my first lesson with Hector, I have continued to learn, grow, improve, succeed and be inspired and encouraged by his expertise. I highly recommend anyone, with or without dance experience, to call and schedule lessons with Hector! He is an extraordinary teacher who will make you fall in love with ballroom dancing!! I did !!

  • Hector had a way of making me feel comfortable the moment I walked into the studio. Not only did he make me feel comfortable but he gave me confidence! You see I was a little shy coming into this, but after only one lesson I was confident to go home and practice!
