I found Studio 22's website (good website by the way) and signed me and my now-husband up for a Wedding Package. In just 5 lessons, Michelle taught us some great moves, focusing on technique and the basic steps. Michelle is not only a super talented dancer but also a fabulous instructor. We had a lot of fun at our lessons, and ended up surprising everyone at our wedding when we broke into a salsa dance during our first dance. Thanks Michelle!

I had the pleasure of working with Michelle and Sergey for over a year on a regular basis.  Beyond being a delight to be around, they were excellent instructors.   One of the many things that I loved about them is that they communicated clearly what to do and then they pushed me to learn to do it!   And beyond all the hard work, we had a blast together.  Unlike many others, they were very passionate about helping me become a better dancer!   I highly recommend them!

My husband and I took lessons at Studio 22 in preparation for our wedding. We started out taking a few of the classes in different styles to try a few things and ended up getting along really well with the swing instructors Maya and Cody. Maya worked with us on learning Jitterbug for our first dance. We didn't want a choreographed routine but we wanted to have a few moves to throw in moving about the dance floor. She was great about breaking the moves down and coming up with different ways to explain things if we were struggling and we really looked forward to our lessons. However, she really went above and beyond as we got closer to the wedding. My dad really wanted us to waltz for our father daughter dance but he lives out of state so there was no way for us to practice together and he was taking lessons at a studio near him. Maya was great at communicating, finding out what he was learning up there so she could teach us the same moves and we were able to schedule an appointment with her a few days before the wedding so she could help us work through any of the disconnects. We just got our wedding video back and we are all so proud at not only how great the dancing was but also how relaxed, confident and happy we look. I highly recommend Maya for private lessons if you'd like to wow at an upcoming event! The studio is also great and is always putting on fun events, we just joined them for a West Coast Swing lesson down in Deep Ellum as part of the Reimagine Crowdus project and had a blast - perfect date night!

Enio Cordoba
Aimee Mendez

(972) 490-0022

Forty years of achievements are hard to condense into a bio. Unlike many teachers that only danced one type of dance, Enio traversed through the separate worlds of Ballroom, Latin, Swing Salsa racking up impressive achievements in each.

Having started at USC under 7 time US Latin  Champion Ron Montez, Enio soon became captain of the US Champion Latin Formation Team and British runner up. Within 4 years he had won the US Amateur Latin Championship and danced in 2 World Championships placing 17th and the winning the amateur World Cup. Now adding legendary coaches Nina Hunt and Walter Laird who rarely took new couples, within 2 years of turning pro he had made the top 24 in both the Rising Star and Open Pro at the British Open. A finalist in US major Latin championships such as the Embassy and Emerald Balls, he also won the Florida, California,Texas Challenge, and US Pro Rising Star Championships. Retiring to raise his boys, he returned after 7 years to win the Cabaret Division at the World Swing Championships and finalist at the US Open Swing Championships with his wife Terryl Jones. Retiring for good they embarked on a 20 year career (first studying with the Cuban and Mambo masters ) then developing and demonstrating their unique style of LA Salsa, teaching at most of the early Salsa congresses around the world. Because of their extensive experience, they were chosen to choreograph many scenes in the movie Dance with Me, and trained most of the stars for 6 months. In the early 1990s, Enio won 3 Feather Awards as the Hottest Mambo Dancer and Most Popular Teacher

Along the way Enio, his brother Robert (7 time US Swing Champion & Hall of Famer) and Terryl ran the biggest dance studio in Los Angeles- Let’s Dance LA. for 20 years. Creating the early prototype for Salsa Congresses, they ran the legendary Swing Jams and Mambo Mania events. With nightly classes often numbering over 125 students, they soon expanded to a 4 story building which Enio renamed “The Granada Nightclub” This fantastic 700 person venue hosted many Grammy Award Winners and was named the “Best Place to Dance, Best Live Music, Best DJ and Best Tapas Club for several consecutive years.

In another sideline, Enio was invited to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs to teach at an elite Ice Skating camp even though he did not skate. Over the next 20 years he coached 8 Olympian US couples in Ice Dance and Pairs and choreographed one winning World Pro Championship routine. ABC Commentator and US/World/Olympic Champion Dick Button called Enio (and Twyla Tharp choreographer Keith Young) “The Two Hottest Choreographers in Skating today…” on ABC’s telecast.

Finally Enio is also an actor having recently starred in two United Healthcare/AARP “Go Long “ commercials. He also was choreographer for the MTV award winning music video Broken Wings by Mr. Mister

I never thought I'd be glad to say I live in Los Angeles! But Enio and Terryl are not only two of the best dancers in the world, but two of the best instructors as well, with a focus on fundamentals and lead-and-follow unmatched by anyone else I know. Enio and Terryl are the best!

Edie Lewis - The Salsa Freak
Editor in Chief of Salsa Web

The caliber of instruction by Enio Cordoba and his partner Terryl Jones is unparalleled. Both teach at the Let's Dance Studio in Alhambra, California, and have a student base numbering the thousands. Holding classes virtually 7 days a week, the Let's Dance studio has some of the largest dance classes in Southern California.

It's a rarity to catch them outside of their busy studio for a non-interupted conversation, but I had that opportunity just a few weeks ago. They are both very down to earth, and genuinely nice people, who deeply care about the business and their students.

Enio and Terryl have a dance and training background that is to die for. Both have taught and trained with some of the top names in the industry. "Enio and Terryl" have become household names with dancers and instructors from all over the world, who are eager to take their popular techniques classes, and instructor-training courses.

I have known Enio and Terryl for quite some time, and have had the opportunity of dancing both with Enio, and some of their students. Having been in the Salsa community now for a number of years, and taken classes from some of the best instructors in the world, I can often guess who's been trained by whom. I can always tell an Enio & Terryl- trained student. Whenever I run across one, it's always a treat dancing with them. Each has a sharp, exciting, and refined lead,with a taste of ballroom, and a mouthful of Latin flavor.

Enio and Terryl's specialty is dancing to the music, which is a an entirely different level of education, very difficult to find. Their methods take dance to an entirely different level. This highly professional way of leading can be tricky to follow if you're always trying to force your basic count and step on the leader. I've tried it, and it doesn't work. What works is hesitating just a bit, and waiting for him. What works is listening to the music. What works is NOT THINKING, letting go, and just enjoying the ride! It's passionate and fiery, soothing and crystal. Trust me, it will ROCK YOUR WORLD!!

Ladies, expect WHATEVER from these leads; wait for the guy, and and let HIM lead YOU. You never know what to expect. His moves are precise and fast. He plays and uses the music as his lead, not necessarily the methodic underlying rhythms and counts. He'll hesitate, then speed you sharply into a turn, hesitating again for a brief second, just long enough to pick up the next phrase or hit of the song EXACTLY where it's supposed to be. To the Enio & Terryl - trained dancer, the basic rhythm is outlined, but the music is what is important.

It's not often one has the opportunity to take a beginner class from two world-class Masters. I was rather shocked that they were asked to teach beginners at the West Coast Salsa Congress last May. It was for this reason I stayed. I was compelled to see exactly how they taught a beginner class, and was very impressed with their thoroughness, clarity, and simplicity. I watched in amazement as they spoke of keeping your dancing tight, and in a circle, rather than the broader slot approach (which is what I used to teach all the time - until I took their class). They taught beginners the foundations of pivots (a highly technical move normally taught to advanced students) and taught what is called a Rotating Cross Body Lead, "keeping it close in a tight situation". They explained that the popularity of Salsa has grown so much, that it is has become increasingly difficult to find ample space at clubs to execute typical (slot-based) cross-body leads.

They had a tag-team approach to teaching that was both comical and fascinating at the same time. You can tell they love working together; they make a fabulous team. During their beginner workshop, they shy'd away from the typically-taught "basics and timing". Instead, they taught physics, the mechanics of body movement, momentum and motion, speed, and control. This fascinated me. I'd never seen a beginners workshop like this before. Physics. The mechanics of body movement and momentum. Taught to Beginners. It all made perfect sense to me. It all clicked in an amazing way. After I saw, and experienced their class, I believe this type of training should be recommened training for all beginners up front, so they don't develop bad habits, and can progress more rapidly. Beginners as well as advanced Salseros need to be trained this way. The reasons "why" a movement is executed, understanding the momentum concept, how pivots can help a lead, what type of speed should be applied, and where the follower's body is placed are all vital to a solid, professional lead.

Student from Japan

I have just returned to my country. After the last class I had to run back to my accomdation to pack my luggage. I have been very lucky to learn salsa in Lets Dance studio. Without coming there, I could not even imagine what the real salsa dance is. When I heard your reputation in NY and watched your instruction video, "Oh my Buddah, I should learn salsa from them." Then I took your class and was shocked again because of your body move. I have never seen any couple like Mr. Cordoba and Ms. Jones. When I learned International latin dance in Japan, I watched Japanese Professional Competition on TV and thought every single guy looked gay. I lost my interest to keep learning international latin dance. In NY I watched many salsa dancers in nightclub, every guy looked as robot does. Every time I took your class, I wondered why Mr Cordoba looked so nice different from other people. For the last eight months, you led me to realize the importance to use elbows and rib cage instead of hip for men. Also you way to use foot is what I have never seen before. It is very difficult for me to do it. However, I would like to tell you this. I danced with one Japanese woman in West Coast Salsa Congress who come here to let her students perform. She is the woman who did not want to dance with me more than one song because of my problem. In Congress, after our dancing she still watched me and seemed to wonder "What on earth happened to that man?" You could guess how I felt. Without watching your dance, I could not set my goal for my salsa dance. Thank you very much

I've always wanted to learn to dance Salsa. At the clubs, it all seems so complicated. With Enio's and Terryl's way of teaching, Salsa is not only easy but they make it easy to learn. They demonstrate out on the floor and correct common mistakes. LDLA has great teachers and students. I absolutely enjoy going to LDLA and recommend it to everyone that wants to have a good time, meet some great people and just DANCE!!

Jean Dorff
Jean Dorff

(972) 490-0022

Born and raised in the Netherlands, Jean Dorff is a successful international Martial Artist and Ballroom Dancer. Because of his background in both dance and martial arts, Jean developed an interest in movement at an early age, exploring the concept of “conscious movement,” a term he developed to describe a connection of rhythm and movement with mind, body and soul.

As a business professional, Jean has provided business coaching and consultancy in the corporate fields of Marketing, Product Management, Business Strategy, and Business Development, primarily for Fortune 100 companies.

Through his work in both the business and dance industries, he began to realize the similarities in thought required for performance coaching to produce top competitors, regardless of the arena. By merging and blending his knowledge of both business and movement, he further developed the idea of ‘conscious movement’ into unique ‘performance coaching principles.’ Using these principles and his personal experience, Jean has coached several national champions and internationally successful dancers, as well as amateur dancers and business professionals.

Jean recently found his company ‘dancing mind conscious body’: a performance coaching and consultancy company, and though he continues to teach, coach and lecture internationally, he is happy to call Dallas and Studio 22 his home base.
