Complaint: SERIOUSLY, THIS INSTRUCTOR IS EMOTIONALLY IMBALANCED AND SHOULD NOT BE TEACHING ANYTHING!! He shared a bizarre story with a class full -during dance. He had us standing there waiting and ready to dance and he took several minutes to tell us that when he was young, his Mother wore a very large ring and hit him on the head intentionally…and that she was an abbusive Mom…well, save this for your shrink! We all have our problems and this in completely inappropriate! On a Saturday, I attended a dance class assuming Gigi (who is positively lovely) was teaching as she usually is. UNFORTUNATELY, Miguel was subbing~ so this was also an ammusing … The first thing Miguel said to the class before starting was he asked if anyone had not taken his class before; and a few women said yes. He took time to say that he did an earlier class and that a heavy set man was present and couldnu2019t really follow the steps so he said the man just u201cdid his own thingu201d in the back of the room; and that he was perfectly fine with this. He further explained that it may be difficult to follow the steps the first time so feel free to do as the man didu2026just keep dancing and moving. I noticed a gal purposely positioned herself in the back to get a handle on the steps as it is a fast dance class. She was somewhat behind the mirror in the back. So she did her best and then did her own movements to get a work out. She had a slight knee problem so I assume that is why she stayed in the very back behind the column. About halfway thru the class when a song ended, Miguel told this ridiculous story and no one could tell why or where it was heading. Here was his story: u201cHave you ever been to a party and you tell someone their hair looks nice and they keep saying, oh, do you want a drinku201du2026..it went on, then he said itu2019s like in this dance class, it is better if everyone follows the steps so we are in harmony. It interferes with the class when someone doesnu2019t follow deliberately, SO YOU CAN COME OUT FROM HIDING BEHIND THE MIRROR!u201d And everyone in the class turned around and looked at her. Seriously, that was so rude and quite shocking. If this emotionally imbalanced instructor has an issue with someone in his class, he should keep his big mouth SHUT and ask to speak to the person after the class is over. So why did he first give a lecture that we should just do our own thing if we couldnu2019t follow for any reason? This instructor seems to care about his class. But, he yells too much as I did take his class on a Wednesday evening once- Body Barre. I have heard others also say he yells too much: UP, DOWN, UP, DOWN, UP, DOWN,u2026.ok, GOT IT! The Sports Club should take more pride in who that hire to intruct these classes…after all, it is a Four Season’s Hotel and will reflect poorly upon the high standards of a 5 star luxe property!
