TESTIMONIALS
"big Thank You for your hard work. It was a real pleasure to have you around and I am most grateful for your professionalism, efficiency and utmost organisation".

WOMAD

"This course was outstanding. I attend a variety of dance classes and learning with Rosaria is uplifting.
Rosaria works at a pace to suit the students in the room, taking time to go over the steps and in addition gives background info to the history of the dance which really adds to the experience.
The class is very much about the movements and feeling the music, something that I look for in dance".
