“Ava is a transformational dance instructor and one of the best around. After researching dance lessons in San Francisco, my wife and I arrived at her studio with a few ideas and limited dance moves. Her process was straight forward and fun. We highly recommend Ava!”

My husband and I had been taking salsa lessons at Symbolic Dance & Fitness for years… We LOVE their dance style, clear communication and creativity…Ava & Rodolfo both are very punctual instructors, which we appreciated, and were very flexible with our busy schedules. I also like the studio location, which is just a couple minutes walk from the 16th and Mission BART station in San Francisco. I loved working with these instructors and highly recommend their lessons for beginners through advanced dancers
