    I think it's a nice WordPress based website, with a coherent color scheme, good layout and a well marked "call to action" - if your primary goal is to get your visitors to "Join Now".

    You might make the embedded YouTube video a bit bigger so it fills the whole container - it's really easy to do that.

    Just my 2 cents.

    LeonT I would suggest you change the red background. It kinda strains the eyes. Try a gray or blue.

    and the text in the header you could probably use something more simpler, since it's a disconnect there. The whole site is simple (buttons, layout) but the header is very different. The shadow on the text is primary why I'm concerned about..

    I think you need to redo the header, especially the typo.

    Header is bit wack, not your part, but left from you. Especially that shining gif animation on that dancing couple.

    And give me small description why should i join, below that big red button. I'm first time visitor...

    Remove that Google ads form side bar, and you can feature some other stuff the instead, maybe does DVDs...

    hei, it looks like you changes the template , looks better now.

    Try moving the Intro section from header to left panel to , parallel to Salsa online video gray box, right to the video and just above the login . It will Increase the visibility and also helps you to get more space in header to work on.
    I do agree with VictorJackson , regarding the header . It will be nice , If you could modify/change the header ... We do header design also , Let me know if you want to get the header redesigned from Weaver Technologies ....

    ur site goes off the right hand side of my screen so that needs sorting it makes it confusing !

    Also you have put a heading of dancing links and then put some adsense ads there, thats not really a good idea !

    It looks a bit dated no? maybe some variation in color would add some dynamic to the layout.

    Everything looks nice, except the header. Change it and you'll have a great looking website.

    Certainly you have enough of material to stick your website visitors on your website. Vbloging is indeed meant for your blog but still you should get some work done for your website. It does not give any look and feel of a 'dancing institution' website.

    The placement of your 'Join Now' button is good but it still can be improved. Your website has lots of potential to be improved and become a hit. I desperately would like to see a major makeover of your website as it has a total different niche and is different from other generic websites.

    Just a simple and quick suggestion about the design: a color combination of dark grey and dark red would be way more perfect. Fits the idea of the site as well

    I think it is a nice clean site, with only small changes needed..

    1. I would make the header text smaller as it overshadows the page IMO.

    2. your image sizes are way to large (file).. This is a major problem.. Load times lose visitors.
    a. your small photo of you in the top corner is 146k
    b. your salsa timing jpg is 693.36 KB
    c. your cha cha backstep jpg is 647.88 KB
    d. your cha cha basic is 569.43 KB
    e. your meringue move is 677.05 KB
    f. your salsa underarm jpg is 900.05 KB
    Thats over 3.5 mb just for those small photos.. at the most they should be 100k for all.

    3. Maybe add the words "Come Dance With Me" above the Join Now button?

    4. Change the background color to grey or a light color.

    Good Luck. ( :
