About Piotrek & Krystal
Piotrek & Krystal have been teaching together live classes year round in Portsmouth NH and Newburyport MA for 3 years. They came together with a distinct desire for the dance to be a modality for self exploration, growth and healing. Piotrek and Krystal's students have raved for years about their unique and effective style of teaching. They combine the development of proper technique with the spirit of the dance. This way of teaching engages all parts of the body: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, which leads to dancing that is extremely rich.
"We love teaching level 1 classes as it is an opportunity for us to observe the curiosity and wonder of new students. The movement unfolds from simple walking patterns into dance right before our eyes! We continue to be fascinated by the dance and inspired by our students."
The depth you choose to explore with the dance is up to you, but the possibilities remain boundless.
I've been dancing at Salsa Secrets since the beginning of my Latin dance experience a few years ago. Piotrek and Krystal bring a unique perspective to Latin dance that transcends just learning the mechanics of the steps and the moves. Their passion and dedication to help make you not just a better dancer...but a more complete person...is genuine and heartfelt. I have greatly benefitted from my many positive experiences dancing there. - George Turner

When will I be ready to go out social dancing?
Social dancing can be a really fantastic experience, but you must be open to the idea that when you dance, there will be many different levels of dancers. Dance isn't about how you rank compared to anyone else, its about how you feel within you! The only difference between you and an advanced dancer is more repetition. Salsa Secrets holds social dances the first Saturday of each month in Portsmouth, NH. All levels are welcomed!
What if I have questions or seek further instruction?
You can always email us if you have a question. Online private lessons are available at a rate of $125/hour and may be scheduled by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
I thought I was just signing up for Salsa to have some fun, meet some new friends, learn to dance and get some exercise that I enjoyed. Well, I get all of that AND MORE! What I didn't expect was that, your style of teaching also includes the brilliant art of being more awake. It's not just dance, its an opportunity to show up, full on! Heart open! Take off the mask and connect all of yourself to another. Be beautiful, present and in love with what's happening. This, I'm learning, is much more important than the dance steps. Seriously, one of the single greatest things I've ever done. Thank you for the light you bring to this world through dance. You are masters on many levels. I am so grateful. - Linda Leland
