Sheetal F. – Birmingham UK

Like everyone else in the UK where you spread your "cool" dancing fever, i just wanted to say thanks and that it was great seeing you again after years when i was a beginner (and so nervous when you asked me to dance!). Needless to say still felt just as nervous but VERY excited this time round.
You bring a new meaning to there being NO barriers in dancing and it's great to meet someone of your experience who doesn't seem to have forgotten the most important foundation of dancing (well in my opinion)... having FUN.

I will continue to do what i can to spread the kizomba/zouk-love...as it has become a love of mine!!

Nuno M – Lisboa, Portugal

O Shaka Brown é talvez um dos mais impressionantes bailarinos e professores On2 do momento. Shaka esteve na festa e até ao fim... ahhh.. e dançou com todas as meninas que foram ter com ele.
Só uma nota extra. Para além de dançar muito muito, e de ser muito simpático, ele sabe dançar em pouco espaço, é muito interessante ver como ele consegue dançar bonito apesar de ter pouco espaço.

Hello! Just been watching you on YouTube, very impressive. You interpret the music in partner work so well - quite rare and most only interpret it in shines. Bloody well done! You have a big fan base on the London salsa scene here.

Edwin – Vancouver, BC

I was in your mambo bootcamp on Saturday, and I was reviewing the videos that I took. I wanted to tell you and Luz how much I enjoyed your classes and to thank you for making it understandable and entertaining, like your descriptions of various steps.  It was especially helpful to have you explain the finer points of certain steps, like the kick-ball-change and body movements and leading techniques. I really hope I can remember those steps and take them out to social dancing and add them to my dance vocabulary. Thanks again and I hope to attend another class with you one day!

Mi experiencia bailando con Shaka estuvo padrísima , sentí que había fuego en la pista, la forma de bailar con esos movimientos salseros y tan elegantes fue genial, me gusta mucho la conexion que tiene con la pareja al momento de bailar y sus movimientos corporales son muy buenos.

Me encanto bailar con Shaka!
