"First, thank you all for the great course you created!"
About the Rumba Course:
First, thank you all for the great course you created! The online classes are not easy for beginners but you can see the effort that Adonis and his team put in their videos and explanations. I liked that there were options for homework. I loved learning more about the music, dance, and culture. I also already tried a few steps in socials and I feel good doing them!
It was a very nice experience! thanks a lot!

"I was very eager to work on the material and waited for the credit so that I could start the next class as soon as possible. I didn't find it hard to study every day."
Svetlana Fomkina
About the Rumba Course:
Learning online, I used to be very resistant to this format of learning. And indeed, it's not so easy to force myself to study by myself. There are always more important and urgent things to do. And you put off your classes for tomorrow and again for tomorrow and so the course ends, and you do not have time to do anything. Every time I start a new course now, after about two weeks I get tired and want to postpone.

But in this course Rumba: A Taste of Tradition by Adonis Santiago I have never had these thoughts, on the contrary I practiced the material with a great desire, and was waiting for the credits to proceed to the next lesson. I did not find it hard to study every day. Adonis, thank you very much, you have created a wonderful course and explained the elements and emotions in such a detailed and accessible way. And one can only dream of a tutor like Olesya Sukhachevskaya. Thank you very much for the correction and support.

Well as I have a lot of work ahead on working out my dancing and development in this direction. But his modest result today, I still share. What rumba I entered the course and what I learned
I really enjoyed the two modules I have taken, both the tutor Isbel and the very detailed videos of Adonis.
About the Rumba Course:
I really enjoyed the two modules I have taken, both the tutor Isbel and the very detailed videos of Adonis. I had already given rumba classes this year (especially Columbia and Guaguancó) but without having a base, this course is what I needed so please continue, I want to keep learning with you.

Anyway, thank you very much for everything! and my congratulations! Best regards!

About the Rumba Course
As soon as I saw the course at Adonis, I could not go by. And I was not mistaken! I took a course in his mode and remained in full delight.
All laid out in the boxes. I really liked the method of delivery of the material, the gradual addition of vocabulary and musicality))).
The most important thing that I got from the course was self-confidence, self-disclosure as a girl in a rumba.)
Also great thanks to the curator Olesya for support and constructive criticism), all clearly and accurately)
I would be happy to take another course Adonis curated with Olesya💋💋💋
