Online “Mambo Academy” by LDA team Ashley, Benny, Brandon and Bryant – recommend it 100% and more!

Just finished the 10th lesson, which felt like a summary of the full course – powerful, dynamic and MAMBO!

I took advance “Mambo 301” course and got my positive mambo injection for the past 5 weeks in a very professional way. Don’t get it wrong – advance was really for advance level, they pushed me to sweat and work hard too. At the same time, beautiful work and page, meticulous and well organised, especially loved all the tips and tricks parts – you got me thinking a lot! In result my approach on my body control changed the most.

I’m really greatful to be able to learn from all four of you from the comfort of my home even if we are in different continents. 🌎🔁🌍
Won’t take this opportunity for granted and will keep improving!
Thank you LDA!

As an educator and student I am always looking to continue my training to be able to further my skills and sharpen the Mambo toolbox. I take no shortcuts when it comes to training with The best of the best.

Mambo Online Academy is Hands down top notch training that will take your dancing to another level. Not only are you learning, but the quality of instruction is World Class ! if you are looking to learn and become a beast, you would be doing yourselves a disservice if you weren’t training with lines dance !! it’s really a no brainer, the amount of content you are receiving is INSANE!! love you guys and appreciate the time, passion and quality you have put into your classes. I look forward to continuing this journey training with you all. It is pushing and expanding my mind, keep pushing this beautiful dance to the world!

LDA Online Mambo Academy is GREAT, for real. Not only is it a great way to keep in “dance” shape during quarantine but the videos actually teach real fundamentals and tips to incorporate into your dancing. I don’t think I would have acquired so much knowledge in such little time anywhere else (in studio, congress, dance travel etc). I’ll keep reviewing these videos long after the current lock down is over to up my game. Thanks LDA!

I’ve taken classes with Benny and Ashley for almost half a year and they were challenging but refined. They truly pay attention to the entire class and adjust as needed to make sure everyone is following along.

With The online classes, I’m glad to say nothing has changed. The content is comprehensive, includes warmups and detail breakdowns. You get a lot of material and you can tell they put in the hours to make sure we get a good experience.
