About Danzon

logo_best_national_instructor_smallDanzon is a team of salsa and zumba dance teachers led by Hilary Hooks. Hilary has over 15 years of dance teaching experience and won awards for Best National Instrucotr and Best Dublin Instructor  in the Irish Salsa Awards in 2011 (the only year that they ran).

The approach of Danzon with salsa is to bring people together to have fun and learn to dance in a friendly and encouraging space. We love to dance and hope to inspire you with the same passion.

When it comes to zumba we aim to make you feel welcome whatever your previous dance or fitness experience. We want you to forget all the concerns of the day while you enjoy the music, work up a sweat and have a bit of a giggle.
