    This was a great experience! I was looking for a place that wasn't intimidating. I wanted to learn some basic social steps. Leo was a wonderful teacher! He was kind and not pushy at all! He made it fun and was able to teach me in a manner I could handle. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I also hear he is good with kids!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Teach what is on thier mind the most.... keep it friendly, fun, and inspiring.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

over 20 years of studio ownership, social teaching, competitive traiing, and real life experiences on social dance floors.

We relate to most people because we dance with most people at most places.... real time lessons.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$35 per private lesson, pay as you go.  each lesson is 30 min. in length and 100% private in dance studio.

How did you get started teaching?

I was recruited to compete and perform and I stayed with teaching after my competitive career ended.

What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds:  Autism, High Risk, Eldlerly, Handicapped, Youth Competitive, Active Adult Socials, showcase, and Elementary and Middle Schools.

Majority of my students are 45-65 avg age.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Nixon Library Ballroom Gala:  dress sharp, and dance elegantly with a lot of well trained ballroom dancers.

 . . . and the OC Fair anual dances:  My students love the latin dances offerred by live bands there annually.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Don't hire a teacher that immediately presents competition and the high prices that go with that.... stay with a teacher that recognizes your social needs and focus only on private lessons without distractions of other lessons and teachers also training on same floor at same time.... opposite of private coaching.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is your monthley budget?

Private lessons are very expensive if you don't have the right teacher and the right learning program.
