The Advanced Class is 1-1/2 hours, taught by Master Instructor Angel Rodriguez. Angel, in his 25 years of experience, has taught hundreds of instructors and performers who now work professionally in New York and around the world:
Nelson Flores descarga latina , Addie Diaz, Luis Zagarra, Glenda Heffer,
Carlos Figueroa....The list goes on! The Advanced Class is taught completely

the instructor level -- and towards the spotlight on the dancefloor.

intermediate class -- and then adds on new, more advanced steps, one by
one. Syncopations, style variations, combined steps -- he throws it all
together. And when he reaches a step the class doesn't know, he stops
to break it down. He leads the class through the step again and again,
until they have it down pat. By the end, the class has several new steps,
a complete routine, and new ways to add life and sexiness to their freestyle.
portion of the class consists of partner work. Mr. Razzmatazz takes apart
and stitches together turn combinations with the skill and care of a master
surgeon. He breaks each one down, reviews it a couple of times, and has
everyone rotate to a new partner. This way students learn to adapt to
the feel and energy of dancing with different partners. Students then
execute the turn pattern to music. By the end of the class, students will
be performing 2 or 3 turn patterns in succession -- complete with styling
techniques to dress up their dancing and move it beyond the basics.
involvement with his class is unparallelled by instructors of any other
school. From beginning to end, he gives acute, personalized instruction
on style and technique, helping students to develop the power and personal
flair that are the trademarks of RazzM'Tazz.
