My experience so far at DanceFree has been great. After 8 hours of private salsa lessons I am beginning to feel much more confident and comfortable with the basics. The instructors are fun, knowledgeable and give excellent personalized feedback. I wish I signed up sooner…

I've taken about 7 private bachata lessons with Estefania at Dancefree. She's incredible! She helps me perfect my fundamentals in addition to teaching me lots of sequences I can break apart and use in a social dance environment. She's also just a really fun person! Dancefree is an incredible institution. They essentially created the social dance scene in Medellin and care about spreading their love of dance above all else. For this reason exactly, their private classes are super-competitively priced to reach as many people as possible. Thank you for helping me get better at Bachata…

Awesome experience overall - I signed up for 70 hours of private salsa/bachata classes and I am so glad I made this choice. I never took a class of salsa/bachata before, but now I feel as confident as ever. My instructors were Edison, Sara, Estefania, Karina, and Alejandro. They are phenomenal dancers and amazing instructors. Salsa community is very vibrant and I tend to go on Thursday and Saturday nights. As someone interested in exercising creativity and the art of dance, this was one of the best decisions of my life…

Dancefree is a dance family that starts with it's highly skilled and professional dance instructors and extremely organized and kind staff. I am an advanced salsa dancer and beginning bachata student. I love Dancefree so much that I take 3 hours a day of private lessons in bachata and salsa and attend the dance socials three nights a week. It's contagious and very inexpensive for someone coming from the US. My instructors, Edison and Sara, are out of this world wonderful and skilled! I highly recommend them! Thank you, Dancefree…

Awesome Staff, incredible experience, fun place! I could probably write pages about this place and they would probably not do justice at how awesome Dancefree is. But I'll try to summarize my thoughts and experience. First, the location of the place is great, it's right in the middle of everything, it's very central right on one the main streets, or at least it felt that way. The facility itself was super clean and very spacious. While it does not have AC, the fans do a great job at keeping the place cool and well ventilated. Then the best factor in this business...the staff!! I've been lucky enough to have traveled to over 60 countries, and to have owned 3 businesses in the service industry... and I must say, the quality of service that Dancefree staff provides is TOP notch, second to none! I was already aware of the warmth and welcoming characteristic of the 'Paisas' (People from Medellin), but wow, the staff at Dancefree took it up a notch or two. I went with the though of trying it out, and signed up for some private lessons online while I was still in San Diego, CA. As soon as I started scheduling the classes, I noticed the level of service was great…

This is a great place to learn how to salsa dance. I have two left feet but my dance instructor (Sara) was very patient with me. By the end of ONE dance lesson, I was already doing some salsa dance moves which I thought would take a heck of a lot longer than that for me to pick up. As I’m writing this review, it’s day three and I’ve gotten a lot better. I’m impressed on how each of these dance instructor has the ability to teach you different salsa dance steps with relative ease. I highly recommend this place if you’re in the area and want to learn how to salsa dance. You will learn and have fun…

DANCEFREE definitely stole my heart and was a huge part of my stay in Medellin! In fact, I'm planning to come back for a month, or a few, and stay somewhere not too far from the studio so that I can come in every other day! Private classes are the best… Pricing is great too... If you're ready for it, and sign up for a pack of classes you'll get a discount, especially the first time offer. It's really worth it and you don't have to take all the classes with the same teacher so it's pretty much guaranteed you'll find someone who is just perfect for you. All teachers are amazing though! I took classes with so many different ones, Alejandro U, Edison, Elis, Christian, just to name a few. Everyone is super friendly, patient, and seem to really enjoy working there… Tip for girls - make sure you take style classes with girls too so that they can teach you girl specific moves. Daniela and Estefania are awesome! So if you ever wanted to learn Salsa or Bachata - this is it! Just do it! Highly recommend!

Dancefree was one of the highlights of my two months in Medellin! When I arrived, I decided it was time to really focus on and improve my salsa dancing. After attending one of the group classes (which was a lot of fun, and a great way to meet people!), I signed up for private classes 2-3 times a week. Immediately my instructor was able to identify both my strengths and weaknesses as a dancer and helped me improve my technique in a very constructive and supportive way. After two months, I have made incredible progress, and I owe it all to my instructors at Dancefree! They are incredibly thorough and skilled teachers. I especially appreciate the level of collaboration among the instructors. For example, my instructor will often ask me to dance with other instructors and then consult with them…

Dancefree is one of the main reasons I visit Medellin. The best dance classes I have taken anywhere in the world can be found here in Dancefree. Every instructor I have taken classes with is very professional and inspiring. Edison and Estefania are amazing teachers. They take their time to explain the steps and help you grow with challenging steps. It is always a fun and rewarding experience. The socials that they host are very entertaining and include a dance warm up, a lesson and sometimes a live band…

Best salsa and bachata classes ! The highlight of my stay in Medellin. I liked it so much I actually changed my itinerary in Colombia to take more classes there. The level of Dancefree professors is really something else. They're also very kind and patient. They'll take whatever time you need to teach you the moves. I recommend their private classes a 100%, or even group classes for those on a…

DanceFree is an amazing place. I had scheduled private lessons and stayed close to the facility. I also participated on their many socials. Professionalism commences from the moment of contact. My instructors were Estefania, Sara and Edison. Super talented, patient and friendly. From the first moment they made me feel like part of the DanceFree family. On Thursday nigh they had a social with live band and a mix of local and international dancers. Everyone was easygoing and friendly. The band was so good I had to take breaks from dancing and just watch and listen. Thank you for the awesome…

The service at Dancefree is outstanding! The administrators bend over backwards to accommodate your schedule and the instructors are professionals who love dance. For example, one of my instructors gave me a list of Salsa and Merengue classics so that I accustom my ear to the beat of Latin music. I'm a 64-year old man born with two left feet. I initially signed up for 10 hours of private lessons and have just paid for another ten. Bottom line, I'm having a great time learning this important aspect of Latin American culture…

Very good dancing school, especially the private classes! The group classes (for salsa) are very crowded, but after about 30 minutes the group is split into 3 skill levels. That's when the fun and learning actually begin! If possible, go for private classes though (great for beginners to pros…
