I have been part of the LVDS family for a year now, and what a fantastic journey it has been! I have gained a family and a bunch of crazy friends. Our very talented and versatile trainer, Su, made learning dance a piece of cake; his patience in teaching techniques brings out the best in us. I am so glad that I have found LVDS. The only thing I look forward to after a hectic week is dance classes at LVDS. Lastly, thank you, Lourd, for making me part of your LVDS family

LVDS is more than just a dance studio—it's like a cozy corner where the beats of meeting new people and the rhythms of fun intertwine! Rohit, my Bachata guru, is not only fun but has been incredibly patient, and Sushanth's charm adds an extra flair to all my Jive classes. At LVDS, I've not only discovered top-notch dance moves, but also a community of egggssstremely cool people through their weekend social events!

My Happy Place - That’s what I have been calling LVDS and that is just what it is to me😊 I joined LVDS in 2019 and now this has come to be my special place . And I would definitely say, the class days are the happiest days of my week . The atmosphere is absolutely vibrant . The Instructors are just fabulous - Lourd, who just needs no introduction and it is an absolute pleasure learning from the master himself. The number of dance forms he offers through LVDS is what makes LVDS stand out, Sushanth - the patient instructor and it is an absolute delight to learn from his classes, all with a wide smile always- it is impossible not to enrol for his classes if you just go for one, Erica - the one who moves so elegantly and pays attention to every student in the room. All the instructors are wonderful and passionate. Each class is an absolute blast ! All this with a lot of smiles and giggles . Sometimes it is not just about the dance classes , it is about the people and I am certain I have found the best of the lot - be it the fellow dancers or the instructors !
