Today, they are successful coaches & performers in Latin American, Salsa, Bachata, Argentine Tango, Ballroom. Their style & techniques are authentic and hence very different from other schools across India. They create a different level of dancers & competitors, taking the company and their vision to celebrate DanceSport among Indian masses to newer heights. Their most recent feather in the cap is as a Latin Coach to Bollywood celebrities, Ranveer Singh & Vaani Kapoor for an upcoming Yash Raj Film.  

What you learn from them is different from most schools in India as they follow the international syllabus and techniques that no other school does. Their claim to being the best Salsa & Latin school in Mumbai comes from a combination of passion and knowledge. Equipped with the best knowledge they provide individual attention in a group class too and do not have more than 15  students in a group class. Most classes are taken by Shan & Ragz together to maximise the benefit to the students.
