"I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn partner dancing skills under the oh-so-skillful, patient and generous guidance of John Lozano over the past few years. His expertise as a teacher in creating lessons which invite and facilitate movement exploration in positive and challenging ways always ensure that I leave our lessons feeling gratified that i spend time and energy dancing." ~Philip J.
"I enjoy the way you think, the way you sort your world; I feel intrigued and delighted as I'm exposed to your breakdown of the dance, and I feel comfortable and at ease in your presence." ~Aaron K.
“My husband and I are so happy that John was able to help us prepare for our first dance at our wedding. John worked with us on both swing and blues and got us comfortable dancing in a short period of time. He is a wonderful instructor, dancer, and very fun to work with. We would love to take more lessons from him in the future and highly recommend him!” ~Sondra C.
