I took ’Burlesque with Jess’ at the Palomar Ballroom in Scotts Valley every Tuesday night and it has changed my life! Not only is she an amazing teacher and so talented, but she is very patient and treats her students with such kindness. I have learned so much through her burlesque classes, including confidence in my dancing and body. I have also done swing classes with her and Mario as well at the downtown location, and those are fantastic classes too! I am so grateful that they are offering classes online, so I can continue dancing and learning! If you want to learn to dance burlesque or different ballroom styles, or improve on the skills your already have, then I highly recommend the Palomar Ballroom!
