Don't Take Our Word,
This Is What Our Friends Say!
"For those seeking to find their own unique identity as a dancer, Beathunter Dance is the place for you. The program will help you develop your preferred methods of interpreting dance, as well as challenging you to grow in the areas you are not as confident. Joél Casanova is incredibly intentional in his methods of teaching and guiding you to embrace your personal style of dance, something no other human can produce. 10/10 program!"
This is the best hip hop in the area! I highly recommend! Joel is the greatest, most inspiring, and helps you learn so much! Not only does he choreograph fabulous combinations that he teaches very well, he teaches you how to freestyle, and have confidence while dancing. His classes are an absolute joy to attend, and he makes every minute in the studio productive, meaningful, and a very fun experience! This is the number one place to dance and have a great time while doing it!!
I started taking lessons at BeatHunter Dance a year ago as a way to further my repertoire as an actress and I have not regretted it. The instructor, Joél Casanova, is a talented dancer whose experience and love of the art has given him the expertise to teach others how to tell the story of music in their own unique way. He is professional, personable, encouraging, and has mastered the art of keeping the lesson at your pace while still pushing you to reach past your comfort zone. Whether you are a professional dancer or just starting out, BeatHunter Dance is a wonderful place to push yourself further and find a greater confidence within yourself.
Joel is a unique dancer, and a even more unique teacher. I think of him as a rare breed, you don't come across people like him often. I've only been working and dancing with him for a year, but his drive and passion for dancing and teaching is like no other. As a dancer, he's the most professional, hardworking and disciplined male dancer that I've danced with in this area. As a teacher, he really invest in each one of his students, which is hard to find in a teacher. Joel helps his students find their own individual personality and unique dancing style, so they become more confident as a dancer inside as well as outside the studio.
