About the lesson
I teach how to learn, not just the repetition of movements, showing the student the way to perform the movements, and I offer the student tools to develop and create new movements. Increasing the confidence, self esteem and creativity of each student.
Dance is an incredibly beneficial practice — not only professionally, but personally as well. Learning to dance can open up a variety of career opportunities in performing arts and entertainment. Whether you dream of working as a dancer in the music or music video business, or dancing with guests as a host or hostess on a cruise liner, professional dance lessons can get you there, or just for have fun and improve your confidence.
Dance lessons are also incredibly beneficial for other types of entertainers and performers. If you're in the acting business, in a band, or dream of making it big in musical theater, a background in dance will prove useful. Dance will make you more comfortable and coordinated in your body and help you feel comfortable, using the stage in a performance.
Dance is also very healthy. It's a workout that focuses on three primary aspects of fitness: flexibility, strength, and endurance. This all-in-one workout is good for everyone; it's a fun way to get healthy and stay in shape.

He shows great patience with all his students to enjoy what he is teaching
He encourages all no matter what
I had the opportunity to watch Gilson's beautiful work with children and it's amazing how he makes the little ones get into the rhythm. Gilson is very well known and respected in the Brazilian community and is worth every minute. The kids had a lot of fun, it was a party! I strongly recommend Gilson for dance classes.
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Gilson! I run a Brazilian playgroup for kids under 10 years old Gilson has been working with our kids for one year now doing classes, workshops and teaching the kids to move like a Brazilian! It was such an honor to have Gilson on our team! His charisma and high energy is so contagious! The kids absolutely love him! He is responsible, super motivated, punctual, disciplined and extremely talented. He led the kids with enthusiasm and really shows the passion he has for dance and talent to teach the art of dancing.
Gilson is also a great friend. He is always able to bring fantastic words that will make you have the best day! He is very respectful but very friendly and overall a very genuinely kind person. I am so proud of Gilson and all of his accomplishments and I can’t recommend him enough!
Gilson's zumba class is full of energy, easy to follow steps yet interesting enough for the more advanced students. Forro class is great too, my non-dancer husband was able to pick up quite a few steps in the first class.
I have been taking dance classes with Gilson for close to 1 year and I couldn’t be happier with the way he manages to bring out the best dancer in each and every one of his students. He recognises each individuals struggles and talents and gives everyone the encouragement and confidence to make dancing a fun and enjoyable experience. Gilsons dance classes are just so much fun
Gilson is an extraordinary teacher! He is very patient and always finds the best way to teach his student according to their needs. He is also a great coach. He worked on my negative beliefs that I had to overcome. I was very happy when I could play my favourite song for the first time. I will be thankful to him forever. He has been teaching myself and my step son who loves him so much. I highly recommend him as a teacher.
I can't recommend Gilson highly enough. He is such an amazing Zumba instructor who always motivates us and making sure every single participant in the room feels comfortable and having fun. He is also a very skilled and patient private dancing teacher who specialises in various dancing styles.
I have been going to Gilson's Zumba for almost 2 years. He is a great teacher. The positive vibes and energy he bring to each class is AMAZING. He always make his student smile. I love his classes.
Gilson is a special Instructor with the "it" factor, electrifying people with passion and desire to spread it among everyone present! He has his unique way of connecting directly to his students, while at the same time having great technique and choreography. He embodies an energy that can be felt deep within the student’s souls and he empowers his students by ensuring they are successful in class, making it an experience really! You can't help but watch, enjoy and be inspired, then all you want is for his class to go on forever!
We engaged Gilson to support us learning a number of dances for a school event. Gilson was super patient with my son who lost motivation on many occasions. He inspired us not only as an instructor but as a spiritual mentor to us both. His demeanor, intuition and kindness saw us both achieve wonderful results for our event with us knowing all the dances with confidence. He truly is an “Angel” in disguise and his generosity of spirit is one so very much appreciated by us! Thank you for taking us on this journey of self discovery and building our confidence to try something new and love it! Many thanks Gilson!!
