A Chat with LaurenWilmore.com
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our classes are always tons of fun and filled with high-quality instructions so that you can achieve your dancing dreams! As one of the most experienced instructors in St. Louis, Lauren always strives to put students’ needs first, and takes your learning and success very personally. So, let’s dance!
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Come to class wearing the correct clothing and shoes! For partner dance classes (Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, Zouk) wear shoes that stay securely on your foot and allow you to spin on a wood floor. For Samba be prepared to sweat a lot and dance barefoot. Also, bring a water bottle to all classes.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My business tagline is “For the Love of Salsa” but we’ve expanded beyond salsa to other dances now. Still the inspiration was love of dance, culture, teaching, and bringing joy to the world through dance. Wherever we go and teach or dance, that is what we bring with us—love and joy!
What do you love most about your job?
Making people smile, laugh and experience joy through movement! Also watching people feel successful and realize that they can achieve any of their salsa/bachata/zouk/kizomba/samba dreams with a little time and effort.
