Ladies Performance Class

You know you want to!

Starting on Saturday, July 27th, join rising Salsa superstar Michelle Zamora as she gears up for the next MMA Ladies Performance Class! Michelle is ready to dance and she wants YOU to join her!

Basic Information

Classes will begin Saturday, July 27th and continue every Saturday until our 8th Annual Equinox: Fall Ball on Friday, September 27th! Dancers are expected to have an intermediate level of skill in Mambo shines as basics will not be covered in this class. This way, the dancer can enjoy the experience and not feel overwhelmed by the choreography. It’s important to us that this be a fun and challenging adventure, so we want to make sure you’re ready! If unsure, contact us to ask if you can be part of this experience.

Additional Notes

  • Classes will be from 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. every Saturday for 9 weeks* with additional classes, if needed, closer to the event. Please note, if additional classes are requested/needed, the classes will be charged on a per class basis.
  • Students are responsible for their own performance costumes and this is NOT included in the price of the class. Michelle will guide you through the process and have you wearing something fun, grown, and sexy!


…what are you waiting for? Are you going to take the plunge and join us? It’s been a blast so far! The ladies have had an amazing time and have truly grown from the camaraderie.  As always, we have something super special planned so jump in and dance with us!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take this if I'm a beginner?
Yes, while Michelle will tend to work at an intermediate/advanced level, newer dancers can benefit their dancing and open up new possibilities in their movements by working hand in hand with Michelle.
Do I have to Perform?
Well, it IS a performance class. That said, the times we grow in life are when we confront fear head on and overcome the false stories we tell ourselves. If you really have an issue preventing you from performing, talk to Michelle and see what she can make happen.
How does this work with what I'm learning at MMA?
Hand in hand! The foundations that you have built at MMA are rock solid. If you’re feeling good about your progress, it’s a good idea to keep moving and challenging yourself. Performance is a natural progression of dance. Read this blog to see what we mean.
Can I alter my payment plan after I start?
Unfortunately, no. We pay transaction fees every time we make a new transaction. The more times we do it, the more we pay in fees. We’re happy to offer a greater savings to our students who are able to pay up front, while still keeping it affordable for our students who prefer a more flexible option.
