    Mariia is extremely talented and knowledgeable in different dance styles. I can’t believe I am actually learning salsa. I never thought I could until I hired Mariia. She is by far the best instructor I’ve ever had and breaks down each move for me to understand. She’s truly a rockstar!

    I like dancing with Maria. After classes I am in a great mood, I feel good. It is very important for me - I lost weight and improved my self-esteem. I became physically more resilient. I will definitely continue to study!

    Mariia are the most wonderful ballroom dance instructor I have ever had the pleasure of studying under. She is incredible dancer and amazing teacher but the best part is how kind she is, she really care about all of her students. Since starting lessons my dancing has significantly improved. Lessons are always the highlight of my week and I am excited for many more!

    Frequently asked questions

    Every lesson start with warm up where we repeat all the basic figures of the Latin program (cha cha, samba, rumba, pasodoble, jive) or the basic figures of the Ballroom program (Slow Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Slow Foxtrot, Quickstep)

    After the warm up, the practice begins with a detailed technique like footwork, arm styling, posture. 

    In the final part of the class, you will learn a new dance routine.
