An experienced and natural teacher who teaches both lead and follow, she has the ability to break down and communicate the subtler points of technique and musicality to any level of student. Her classes are always relaxed and fun. She actively engages with the group and individuals so that everyone is able to understand and progress in the class, building confidence in the students so they become better dancers.
Suzana is a natural dancer who can adapt quickly to whoever she dances with. A light and responsive follower who always brings elegance and her own brand of hot sauce to a dance. Great body movement and musicality always delivered with a smile.

Not only the classes but also the socials, which have a reputation for being relaxed and inclusive, where newcomers immediately feel like part of the family rather than an outsider. No matter if you are a beginner or an advanced dancer, Suzana will make you feel at home at The Studio.
