Additional information
Positive aspects of school: great professor, ease of access, possibility to have lunch on site, security, private lessons and progress ... near the dance school, good welcoming at school, evenings at school very friendly, outings in the city less successful.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: for dance: less structured courses, nevertheless nice welcoming and atmosphere .. I added 1 week of vacation in Las Terrenas and Bayahibe wich was great.
Other comments: clean and safe housing (a little too much!), lack of water sometimes (global in the neighborhood), somewhat isolated area in the evening.
I really liked the general state of mind that prevails, the proximity between students and teachers. They put you at ease immediately and the atmosphere is therefore very friendly.

Other comments: One area I think they could work on better is making sure students are in the right level. I saw some people from a low level in the advanced class, and some who spoke very well in a beginner class.
Young and motivated team, uncomplicated handling between teachers and "students"; Demanding class combined with fun
