      I have tried other studios and instructors for both Zumba and Salsa and I must say that Danzone is definitely my dance home. I will not go elsewhere. I have now been coming to Danzone for the last 6-7 years.

    I found Danzone initially taking Zumba with Lenny. I LOVED IT!

    Finally, I got enough courage to sign up with Lenny for Salsa as well. Do I have to say it again?...Ok, ok...I LOVED IT! I got hooked and continued to come back for more sessions. I also met my boyfriend at Danzone, so this dance studio has a special place in my heart to say the least :).

    Danzone is a judge-free, safe-zone and Lenny IS THE BEST instructor you will find! I don't play with online reviews. Most often I'm too lazy to write them, but if I give one, I mean IT!

    Lenny is patient, she understands how to teach step-by-step to enable learning and growth. She has a great sense of humor, so her classes are fun and energetic. She's often part of community events and fundraisers as well and that's commendable. She works hard. She's brings value to the San Fernando community that it was definitely lacking before her arrival.    

    I can't say enough about what an amazingly positive impact my beautiful friend Lenny and Danzone have been to my life, so if you're on the fence about taking classes here, let me help you; SIGN UP NOW! You will be happy you did.

      I had been meaning to take salsa lessons for years and years and years. I finally made the time to sign up and I am SO GLAD I did it at Danzone! It's a 5 min drive from home and their prices are very affordable.

    I joined the 6 week beginner course with Lenny and just completed my last class. Next week I will move on to the intermediate course. Whether you feel you somewhat know how to dance or are starting out with two left feet, Lenny really breaks everything down in a way that is easy to understand. She is patient and hilarious at the same time. My class size was large, began with 28 people but by the 6 week mark there were only around 18 people.

    I learned A LOT! I feel very comfortable dancing salsa now with just all of the basic steps, turns, and cross body leads down. Can't wait for the next 6 week course to begin!

    They also host dance socials every other Friday at the library square with DJ and Papa Juan's stays open and sells tacos for you to go and practice your skills and mingle!

      Lenny is the best dance instructor. She is very helpful and patient. She took the time explain and also get my daughter to open up about what she likes in music and artist. My daughters Quince was a success. My daughter and her friends enjoyed the practices. Also the father and daughter dance was beautiful. I highly recommend anyone who needs a choreographer and MC Lenny is your person.
    My husband and I will be taking salsa classes soon. I'm looking forward to learn to dance and have fun.

    Thank you Lenny for all your help and for making my baby girls quince one to remember.
