Hello! I'm the founder of CandyShop Dance Studio.

My philosophy is that any girl, regardless of age, physical characteristics, or experience, can learn to move gracefully and uncover the best internal qualities within themselves.

That's amazing. Maria, thank you so much for teaching us all these! I've never danced on heels before, I would say I was wearing them just 2-3 times a year and here I can see how I've learned such beautiful movements just in 3 classes. I see what I should work on, but it still looks amazing. Thank you!

Thank you Maria for being an amazing heels dance instructor. It truly is an ART. The whole learning experience of dancing in heels and being comfortable with my body and expressing myself to be confidentially sexy was empowering. Professionally Recording our group and a photo shoot was the added cherry on top. Your positivity and your passion is inspiring and contagious. I can't wait to join another class!
I've been looking for a dance group for a while and I'm so happy I got the chance to be part of Maria's. The first time I try this type of dance was with Maria in an open class and I've been hooked and obsessed ever since, won't look back. When I first started I looked at the dances and thought “there's no way I'm doing that, it looks really hard" thanks to Maria now I'm like “I don’t know how but I'm doing that” no matter how hard it seems I need to at least try.

Hey Maria just want to thank you for everything. You really put a lot of effort into your dancing and it's extremely inspiring to know I can too. When I joined the group I was wanting to really get out of my comfort zone and spend some time with myself to really express myself. I feel like I really found that!
Maria, you are such an incredible lady! I truly appreciate you and your talent to bring Life into Life!

Girls, for me it was the best time ever for this last month. Maria and your spouse, really appreciate for yours super professionalism and energy you did excellent work. I enjoyed all time. Girls, you were super hot babes. Love you!

I rewatched the videos and I actually like some of the clips! I can definitely see my improvement from when I started, and learning to be less in my mind and in my body, not just at home but letting everyone experience it. I so appreciate these past 4 sessions and so excited to start with the rest of the group tomorrow.
You know it mades my whole month being on your classes. I keep on joining because this has become my “granito de felicidad" which basically means this is my happy place, my little peace of happiness. This month has been really busy, stressful and overwhelming for me... I could probably say the most since I joined u at the beginning of the year but! I would've been going crazy and probably miserable if I didn't join because the days that I spend with you guys are the days that I've been finding myself looking forward to.
I think one of the things I loved the most about this group was the pace of the choreography and how it pushed every single one of us out of our comfort zone and made us better. The way we keep on growing so fast amaze me. Thank you. A thousand times thank you.
I loved working with Maria! She is a great teacher and you can tell she genuinely loves what she does. I love how she structures the classes and the groups because you get to meet new people and connect with them over weeks. I loved the group aspect because you don't see new people every week, you get to build relationships while learning dances and pouring into yourself.
I loved this final beginner choreography so much!! It was fun and because I've taken beginner before I could tell I picked it up a lot faster. I had other obligations that made me miss quite a few classes but your videos allowed me to practice and keep up no problem which I'm super grateful for!
I appreciated your patience and willingness to help us learn technique even if we didn’t get it the first try! I also love that you lead with example and always supporting the girls with time and communication and dancing technique. I also liked that you were proactive in communicating online tutorials & details/reminder of classes taking place. You were wonderful especially for my first time — thank youuuu!
Maria I wanted to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude for the incredible impact you've had on my life through your exceptional teaching. Your dedication to the art of dance has not only shaped my technical skills but, more importantly, has played a pivotal role in boosting my self-confidence. Your encouragement and support have been instrumental in helping me overcome challenges and embrace the joy of dancing.
Hey Maria, just wanted to say thank you for bringing a great group of girls together. This week was stressful for me, especially at work. Dancing with the girls tonight really uplifted me and allowed to totally forget how stressful this week was. Many thanks!
This is literally what i love the most! We can forget about everything for a few hours and just have fun and enjoy ourselves. So happy you joined us today and that we all helped u little. Loved the energy girls and them freestyles - chef kiss. Y’all have a great night hopefully I'll see u girls on the groups.
