      Lenny is talented, patient and extremely talented! I took a Dance in Heels class with her and about a dozen other women. Her studio is a great size and I was able to found parking easily. When I walked in, Lenny greeted me with such a warm smile and during the class, I found her energy electric and contagious! She truly loves what she does and that passion is evident! I'm so glad I took a class with her. I felt properly guided through the steps and we were able to create a nice little number at the end, that we performed as a group. SO much fun and SO amazing!! Great workout - thighs were hurting the next day! Haha

      Danzone is a great place to learn how to dance salsa. I just finished my first beginners class 6 week course with Lenny and it was a great experience. Totally recommend it for those looking to try out salsa lessons for the first time and you do not have a partner to go try them out with. Will be going back soon!!!!!

      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.
