"As an instructor of dance, you really need look no further than Josie Neglia. She truly stands out and excels among instructors by her attention to details of every student, her high fun energy and her commitment to excellence. In Josie's dance classes be prepared for hands-on teacher--nothing slips by her watchful eye. This is what sets Josie apart from other instructors in that she is not standing in the middle of the room with a microphone hoping that students catch on - - as the class is in progress she is mingling with her students, demonstrating proper form and posture, giving critiques and praise when due. I have been dancing salsa for 18 years and can honestly say that Josie is a committed, exceptional, and knowledgeable instructor. Likewise, she is a kind, compassionate and honest person who makes her classes fun, sexy and yet full of detail, great dance insight and always brings new ideas and energy to the class.

"I am from Trinidad & Tobago. I have bought ten of Josie Neglia dance dvds and I am really enjoying them. Josie is indeed a fantastic dancer. Her body speaks when she dances. Now I know that because of her dvds I will be a better dancer.
Josie, best wishes and thank you!"
"Spinning I swear has been my enemy.....lol...Josie's Spinning workshop was just what I needed to learn the fundamental technique of how to spin. Her step by step approach made it really easy for me to follow and her exceptional knowledge of technique helped me to understand what I was doing wrong. I feel like I now have the tools, and confidence to work on spinning like a pro".

"Josie set the tempo, she has a great attitude and is really a lot of help. This last meet up was a lot of fun, I think I had a smile on my face the entire time. If you're thinking about it, just do it, go down there and try it. Better to go and try it, maybe you will like it, but don't regret not going."
"Learn to dance Salsa, in addition you meet new people and you have fun at the same time"

“ It's a lot of fun. Very nice people and Josie is a great instructor. ”
“ You do learn a lot and also after the class you practice what you learn. It is better to make your mistakes on the practice floor than at a real club. ... ”
" I love dancing, especially Salsa. Ms. Neglia, I bought a set of your instructional videos. In the videos, I like the way you teach. I am looking forward to take your class in person. "
I just LOVE this picture of YOU. Another GREAT and wonderful Salsa
Teacher and Performer!"
“Hey Josie, I found this quote and thought of you: "Stifling an urge to dance is bad for your health--it rusts your spirit and your hips."
-Adabella Radici :)
Hope all is well with you.
It was wonderful taking class with you...You are very
personable, approachable - buena gente!
I didn't think I would meet you until I took your salsa
instructor's course (which I haven't taken yet, bad schedule
timing,..eventually I would like to take it).
...instead I met you sooner than expected at the San Diego
salsa festival..and I took your salsa show moves class (I was
the brown girl, curly hair).
My friend David and I are fans of yours and we take Bachata on Sunday nite at Seville and we have decided you are the best Bachata teacher in town! Head and shoulders above the rest.
"What I would give to dance and be on your semi pro team. I love dancing it is the best thing in life that's is when I am truly happy and I love to dance Latin it is so awesome but I live in green bay and I would love to be on your team and win. I love all of your videos they are awsome you are a great dancer and teacher.
I just took a look at your website, it looks amazing! It really was a pleasure meeting you this weekend you have energy about you that I really liked. It’s just rare to meet good people with the looks to match the personality. I hope you enjoyed San Diego. Enjoy your day!
"Hi Josie, just wanted to thank you for being such a great instructor and for making the class so much fun! I really enjoyed the bachata class and look forward to our future classes. Have a wonderful day :)"
